3rd Party Compatibility

KDEN - Denver International Airport should generally work with all addons, however some addons have specific requirements to work with a given scenery. These are typically addons such as traffic, or ground service addons, which require specific data to function. KDEN has been tested with the following addons:

  • FS Live Traffic (FSLTL)

  • Most other addons should just work. If you find one that doesn't, please let us know so we can try to add compatibility!

For GSX support, please perform the following steps:

  1. In GSX Pro's Customize menu (located in their installer), choose to "Exclude 3rd party", otherwise GSX will attempt to add it's own jetways and flatten KDEN.

  2. Download our GSX profile

  3. Unzip "kden-xcodr.zip"

  4. Copy "kden-xcodr.ini" into "%APPDATA%\Virtuali\GSX\MSFS"

  5. You're done!
