Stansted V2: All you need to know.
Updated: Apr 10
Text Updated: 10.04.23 Stansted was without a doubt our first major project. Since we bagan in 2020 - we have constantly strived to improve on quality, price and performance. This means that by early 2022 we realised that Stansted (nearly 2 years old) was due for an upgrade.
Today - we are releasing the latest version - Stansted V2. This combines all of the good features from the original airport, whilst overhauling the performance, file structure and visuals to ensure that Stansted is on par with our latest major releases such as Dublin. This release statement will hopefully cover all of the information you will need in order to download and install the new version as easily as possible. We strongly recommend reading the information here before contacting us - as we are expecting a high volume of queries regarding the update and we may therefore be slower to assist compared to our usual response times. You can see the official trailer for Stansted V2 here:

What if I don't have Stansted V1?
This is the easy part - if you do not have the old version, you can simply download Stansted V2 from here. Be sure to read the full requirements and features so you know what you'll need to run it seamlessly!
I have Stansted V1 from: Boundless Store
This is where things sadly get a little less automated. We upgraded our store system back in November, which means we cannot automatically send out a new download link unless you purchased Stansted after November 15th 2021 (if you have, you will receive an email shortly). If you purchased before this date - email us with the following information: Original order number Date of order Name and Email Address We will then be able to offer you a coupon code to download the new version.
I have Stansted V1 from: IniBuilds Store
If you own the previous version - information on the update and the ability to upgrade will be confirmed very shortly. The upgrade will be released on our store first but will be live with iniBuilds soon after. We will keep you updated.
For future simplicity, Stansted updates from X-Plane.org Store will now be handled by us directly. This means you'll need to email us with: Original order number Date of order Name and Email Address We will then be able to offer you a coupon to redownload from our store.
I can't find my original order.
We need previous order information to confirm your purchase and offer you the new version. If you downloaded from our store, try searching for "Boundless" or "Stansted" in your inbox. This should bring up your original order confirmation and receipt. If this doesn't work, send us the original email you used to download with. We will try to manually search for your order on our records (This will take longer than if you have an order number!).
