    A few questions.

    Hi, Having noted Reggies' general points above you can assist your fudging by paying attention to a few of things. Isolate your GA parking spot area from any others by connecting it to the runway with just one taxiway to each end of the runway to the point where you want them to take off...

    AI F50 turns back halfway the runway

    Hi Bert, When I opened your file it didn't have an exclusion file with it. It may be that the exclusion has somehow been lost in the various edits you've been doing. I suggest you do another using the 'Add Polygon' button in ADE and when it gets to the point where you need to select which...

    Designated parking

    Hi Tim, Adding codes to the parking spots is the way to do it but the added codes must be in the aircraft.cfg, eg parking_codes=OSF. Before deciding on your parking codes check that the code isn't being used already by another airline. Ttools has its own parking code list and there are others...

    AI F50 turns back halfway the runway

    Hi Bert, You did not read my previous post carefully. I explained that your taxiway (the long one as all your taxiways are A) did not connect to the runway or the link to the parking spots and that all runway exits should have hold short nodes. I did a fault find on your airport but it didn't...

    AI F50 turns back halfway the runway

    Hi Bert, The update you posted did not differ from the original. To expand a little further your taxiway A does not connect to anything, neither the runway nor the link to the parking spots. If you have addressed this then the runway/taxiway scheme will function. If you have not put in any...

    AI F50 turns back halfway the runway

    Hi Bert, Having looked at your ADE there is a taxiway link that is not connected to the runway. Mouse over any links you make to ensure the connection - connected links will highlight in white. In addition you have no hold short nodes so that any aircraft landing will not signal they've...

    FSX Planner error checking problem??

    Hi Chappy, As a non FSX Planner user I can't help you any further. If you are still getting problems and have not done too much work on this project perhaps you could try another utility. Colin

    Airfield Signals Square Help

    Hi George, Thanks, you've saved me the trouble of trying it again. Thinking about it I don't know if it would have moved, I never gave it long enough to see. One look and it was gone! Colin

    FSX Planner error checking problem??

    Hi Chappy, Surely you will want the tower viewpoint to be above the airport ground level? Start the viewpoint setting with, say 50 feet, check it in the sim and adjust accordingly. Colin

    Airfield Signals Square Help

    Hi George, I did try one from FSX (not the same one as in your picture) but it was too big, ugly and yellow and didn't move. It didn't look correct in the square I had made so I passed on it and made a static white one in the same manner as I made the square itself. I'll try the one you've...

    Missing textures

    Hi Just to add to what Jon said some of your taxiways seem to have no width in which case no texture will be shown in ADE. Colin

    Airfield Signals Square Help

    Hi Nige, I've actually done one in one of my airfield makeovers using ADE. Draw either four rectangles or or two L-shaped polygons to represent the square. It's a bit fiddly but if you zoom in to make them large you'll get it right eventually. When they're to your satisfaction make the...

    Creating FSX mdl files

    Hi Arno, Thanks for your input. Although I'm a couple of stages away from actually needing the guid it will help when the time comes. You've confirmed what Jon has said about the guid being unique so I need not worry about it conflicting with anyone elses'. Colin

    removing default taxi signs

    Hi, I had a problem with duplicate taxiway signs (mentioned in one of your earlier posts) at an airport sometime back and it was caused by the exclusion rectangle, which is introduced by ADE, not covering the airport. As you seem to have been playing around with exclusion rectangles could it...

    Creating FSX mdl files

    Hi Jon, Sorry to burst in on your thread but it's, sort of, relevant. I've been working with gmax and tried a dummy run to make a model and, yes, it requested a guid. As I am very new to gmax I had no idea where to get one, I haven't read that far in the formidable SDK literature, and I opted...
