Touchdown points in AFCAD

Recommended Posts

Hi all, As a user of Mega Heathrow scenery published by Aerosoft and designed by Simflyers I have just downloaded and installed a patch which fixes some incorrect gate numbering around the airport including T5.The patch is fine, and as expected have received a new AFCAD to relfect the change. The developer that changed the AFCAD also put in later touch down points for 1 runway as AI aircraft generally have short breaking distances, however the runway that he has done this to now means that AI aircraft miss most of the runway exits and spend longer before they reach a taxiway to vacate making this worse. For the other runway where this would have actually benefited the touchdown point remains the same so aircraft take equally as long before they reach an exit. My question is, is it possible for me to change touchdown points myself in AFCAD. If it is possible then I would not mind at least having a go to try and improve the situation. If it is possible is there a tutorial or any instructions to follow as currently cannot find much on this topic (hense the question - is it possible)?Thanks very muchNick

Hi all, Just looking at the AFCAD this afternoon and seemed to have come across the solution as all that had been changed is the Displaced Threshold. By increasing this I have been able to make AI aircraft touch down at a later point on the runway so when aircraft finish there roll out they are dead on a runway vacation taxiway so can clear the runway quickly ready for the next landing.
