    FSX Taxiways and Apron texture angles

    Hi Folks. I apologise for the rather obscure title of this post. Here is what I mean by it. I am fairly new to airport design and only now starting to think about using GPs etc. When I create aprons and taxiways using the 'default' stuff in ADE the effect is that they always are placed at...

    FSX Taxiways

    Hi Folks. I can't seem to figure this out and I'm perhaps missing something in the tutorial, so can anyone explain why this is happening and how to prevent it? Here's the deal.

    Ground Polys

    Hi Folks. I may appear to be a bit dense here but, I need some extra knowledge. I've kinda got the basics for re-working an airport to resemble a TileProxy background in FSX.

    FSX ProKey and NAVAIDS

    Hello again Folks. I've had some help regarding LIBG airport. FSX has a shortened runway, whereas TileProxy shows the real world runway full length.

    FSX A question of scale.

    Hi Folks. I use TileProxy for my FSX scenery and it's great. It uses Virtual Earth satellite images to display the scenery. This means that I see the real world scenery image when I fly. I am wanting to make some changes to the LIBG airport. The FSX stock airport runway is well short and the...

    Using with Tileproxy

    Hello Folks. Whilst attempting to modify LIBG to resemble the actual airport as displayed in TileProxy, I have discovered that a stock NDB in the default LIBG scenery is placed a short distance down the actual 35 runway as displayed in the TP satellite image. The FSX runway starts quite a bit...

    Mag. Var.

    Hi Folks. Due to magnetic variation, the runway ID numbers at the aerodrome I am working on have changed from 10/28 to 09/27. I have changed this in the runway properties box but now get an error message telling me that certain taxiways are trying to align with a non existant runway. The new...

    Passing on the scenery.

    Hi Guys. Now that I know how to add statics with SAMM could someone advise me what I need to do to package the scenery in order to give it to some friends? Will they need to download the aircraft that I have included as statics? Or is it sufficient for me simply to include the textures in...
