How do AFCAD overlays work?

Recommended Posts

Hey guysI've been playing around with AI traffic, and installing overlays to get the right airlines at the correct terminals.So, I installed John Thomas' 8 overlays for Simflyers KLAX scenery, loaded FS - and selected LAX.But there's only a handful of a/c there, and I think they're at the wrong gates.How do I therefore make the airport come alive, with aircraft at the right gates?Yours hopefullyRob

You need to use AITM to move AI to the overlays. I think 8 is too much. What I did was split the airport in half. North use 24R/6L for landing and 24L/6R t/o. South 25R/7L t/o 25L/7R landings. Then use the radius method that you can find at http://www.projectai.com/ that will put the right airlines at the correct gates (pretty much).John

Overlays for airline parking have gone the way of the dinosaur. Use the Radius AFCAD method. Go over to Project AI www.projectai.com, and check out the Unofficial Downloads are for information on Radius AFCAD. You'll find all that you need (plus a single-overlay version of SimFlyers LAX w/ correct gate parking by Matt Fox).Cheers,J
