I don't want to sound ungrateful, but why do scenery designers still put static aircraft in their airport scenery when we have utilities like ttools and AFCAD available? I know some have concerns over frame rates, but with PojectAI in full swing, this is becoming a concern of the past.
Having no technical knowledge regarding the creation of scenery, is it easy to create a version with and a version without static aircraft?

Depending on the airfield, there may not be an option to put in AI traffic.
Untowered fields for example can't have AI traffic at all.
And if you're not good at making flight dynamics and don't want to use the MS default aircraft (which may have any texture which probably doesn't fit in with your scenery) you're stuck.
Most scenery designers now put the static aircraft in a separate BGL which you can easily remove if you want to.
