Taxi and Gate Import does not work for all Airports in X-Plane

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I just wanted to import taxiways and gates for EDDF (Payware X-Plane) in P2A, but it says something like can not find scenery... Works fine for EDDH (also Payware Scenery).

Without importing, taxiways are really weird.

Any idea, what could cause this issue?

Cheers,
Michael

Michael,

How is that airport referenced in the ini file?  Here is a response from Dave about this topic in another post, the ICAO code is the key so if that payware custom scenery does not have the ICAO code in the folder name which transcribes to the ini file then it looks like P2ATC will grab default data files.  Could this be the issue?

Yes.  It first looks in the Custom Scenery/scenery_packs.ini file to get any custom scenery with the ICAO code of the selected airport in the name.  If you have a multi-airport custom scenery file, you may need to modify the name of the ini entry and folder to get it to find the airport.

If it doesn't find a custom scenery, it then looks in the default apt.dat file.

Hey Todd,

thank you very much. This helped a lot. The "problem" was, that this scenery not only consist of one folder, but one for parked cars, roads and scenery. Once I renamed the cars and roads folder, the import works as expected. Thx for the hint.

Best,

Michael
