I will assume you are using VoxATC for FSX? From my own experience only, it appears that VoxATC-X will extract some data including runway and taxiway routes and issue proper taxi instructions. I have added a small number of airports to FSX, mainly Orbix FTX airports including Melbourne INTL- YMML and the ground taxi clearance seems to work just fine. The latest version adds green centerline lights to guide you which is a great enhancement. The scenery must be installed in the main FSX folder so scenery installed elseware on your hard drive and mapped to FSX using the scenery library will not be read by the VoxATC indexer. In fact I have used this to fix some issues in the past when the indexer would hang up on a new scenery.

Sorry David, I haven't used the FS9 version in over two years. Maybe a current FS9 user would comment. You can download the free demo from the VoxATC website and check it out for yourself. Good luck.

If the file location in the scenery.cfg has the full location in then the indexer will work perfectly. ie Local=H:\FSX Scenery\FQMA_Maputo instead of Local=..\..\..\FSX Scenery\FQMA_MaputoAdding the scenery via the inbuilt FSX add/delete scenery system doesn't put the full file location in.Rog
