Parallel Runways AFCAD

Recommended Posts

How can I make AI land on one parallel runway, and takeoff on the other?I've tried modifying the runways using the airport editor, but when I tried it at KORD, aircraft would start using a different runway from the one I modified, regardless of the wind setting.

FSX will assign the runway that has the best score. Part of the scoring is whether there is a match between the '...TakeOff'/'...Landing' flags and the requested purpose. But there are many other factors used in the scoring and one of the other factors may overrule the ...TakeOff/...ForLanding flag.But... more importantly: there is a bug in FSX (and I suspect many older versions as well). In the scenery there is only one runway (say 09/27) and it has flags for both ends of the runway: PrimaryTakeOff, PrimaryLanding, SecondaryTakeOff and SecondaryLanding.The bug is that when the flag ...Landing must be checked, FS will always check PrimaryLanding, never SecondaryLanding (It will check if the request is for the Primary or Secondary end, but then always return the Primary flag). The Takeoff flag is handled correctly. Daniel
