Multiple WW2 Air bases

Recommended Posts

Guest NickButler

Hi,this is my first post on this forum,or in fact any forum, so here goes, I want to recreate England/ East Anglia as it was during the latter stages of WW2, pretty much just a giant aircraft carrier, there were basically 2 types of bomber bases, the standard class A layout and the expansion type built in the late 1930s to deal with the looming threat. Rather than design and build well over 100 bases all pretty much the same, is there a way that I can design say 5 and effectively copy and paste them to the coordinates I want? or is every single item on the field individually coordinated within the software program. If all the scenary is placed relative to a central coordinate, ie a runway center or something, I would only have to change that coordinate and possibly a flatten/altitude figure to move the entire airfield lock stock and barrel. Any help with this, and if it is possible to do it this way, advice on a scenary design program would be greatly appreciated. ( I wont bother if you have to do the bases individually, its just too much work)CheersNick

Hello Nick,Sorry for the delay in replying to your question. Welcome to the forum.What you want will be rather difficult - the airport facilities files contain the runways, taxiways, and aprons for each individual airport, and each of those elements is defined by its geographic coordinates. So, you cannot simply copy a file, change one set of coordinates per file, then give it a different airport identifier.Perhaps you could still do your project, but slowly, one airport at a time. It is surprising how much can be accomplished with persistent effort over time.Best regards.Luis

On the other hand, often it pays to take the time to think these things through. I seem to remember that Jon's Airport Design Editor will do just that - move a airport in its entirety. I don't recall having used this function extensively, so perhaps somebody else can provide details, if that is, it is possible.Moral of the story: don't believe people who tell you that something is impossible.Best regards.Luis
