Incomplete and outdated scenarios

I can not understand how main airports continue outdated and incomplete, runways that do not exist, new terminalr etc. Airports like Mexico City, Cancun, Chicago, Brcelona and many more. What is the idea to buy the scenarios to have the full airporte ?. I know it is very difficult to keep the airports of the world updated, but I do not explain how many main ones are not like that.

Well, you can hire several hundred (if not thousands) of developers and TRY to make it better.

Then the airports change, and you have to do it all over again.

You also have to expect to pay several hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars for the initial version, plus another substantial amount for updates.

No one on the consumer level is going to pay for that.

It's just not viable finance-wise, although I get what you're saying, it would be awesome for everything to be complete.

That's why the airlines pay the big bucks for the airports in their full-motion simulators to be updated all the time.

But oh yes, it would be awesome. (And put a lot of add-on manufacturers out of business).

It doesn’t solve the big picture, but you could use airport design editor and “fix” whichever airport you like. Depending on how big the differences are and how many of them you wish to fix it can take a lot of effort. I started working on my home airport about a week ago, just to get rid of a runway, and I think I’ve fallen down the rabbit hole. I’m now working on the auto parking lots.
