The new DOHA OTHH Taxi2Gate

Recommended Posts

Anyone have it? Do the AI go to it or is the place an empty airport?

Picked it up the minute I saw it on SimMarket. Been waiting for it for quite some time. Excellent airport, great frames and comes with a semi detailed city. I am just shocked at how quick the guys over at T2G are throwing airports out into the market.

 

As for traffic, I am using UT2 and I'm still going through the documentation to see how to shift the traffic over and completely close down the old Doha airport(OTBD).

Yeah, and he shut the AI off before going to the new airport!

 

Was wondering if T2G added a feature to have OTBD AI land at OTHH (like the freeware version does).

Yes it is, but that still doesn't answer my question about the AI landing there....

For those who are using UTT or AIG flightplans use the AFIP tool - open traffic file in the AIFP, click on Aircraft - Edit Aircraft List, then in the new Windows click Flighplans - Find/Replace, in the Field area chose Destination, type OTBD, click all. All flight plans that contain OTB will be highlited. Then in Replace type OTHH and click Replace in selected FPs. At the end compile the traffic file.

Of course add OTHH first to the airport list.

 

Scenery is great and looks phenomenal with Qatar Airways fleet around the gates.

Thanks for that info, sadly I use WOAI.

 

I know the freeware version had it so OTBD traffic would land at OTHH. Wonder if T2G could do the same.

You can use the same method for woai Traffic files

Easy via UT2 power tools and tab airport modifications ;-)

- First add airport: (second option)

... ICAO code OTHH and IATA DOH

...Name Hamad International Airport

...Country Qartar

...Longitude and latitude N25.15.33 and E51.37.59

...Feet 17

Save

 

then modify ICAO code on IATA airport

Search for DOH and add OTHH

Save

then modify IATA code on ICAO airport

Search for OTBD and add XJD

Save

Finally choose check for conflicts and choose resolve those :-)

 

As always make just a simple backup from the UT2 database so you can revert back easy when needed...

(C:\Users\<yourname>\AppData\Roaming\Flight One Software)

 

Have fun :-)

Thanks, it seems to be switching the entire schedule just fine following your steps. However, is 'XJD' actually necessary or is it just a placeholder for the IATA code which can be replaced by any combination that doesn't already exist at any other airport?

You can choose whatever however make sure it doesn't conflict with another airport...

I have chosen a nearby military airport.... It could be another one which has almost no traffic. Didn't tested it with a place holder not known or blank for that matter.

You could check the manual from UT2

 

Have fun gentlemen...

Fantastic scenery and I'm glad I purchased it! But for me the killer is no AI :(  and I use WoAI so if anyone has any remedy please let me know.

MyTraffic 2013 uses BGL to generate traffic? Couldn't you use AIFP or TTools to manually edit the correct flightplans?

I know, it's quite a job, but otherwise I don't see how...

 

The other option is to wait until new flightplans are generated... I don't use MT2013, so I'm not familiar with it, though...
