Adjusting Parking Positions

Recommended Posts

I am running Parking Position Generator (P3dv4.3) to adjust the number of aircraft shown in PSX.  What I would like to do is have the ability to occasionally set the number of parked aircraft to zero. When I have attempted this the number of aircraft never goes to zero. An example would be KDFW where I get the following 3(164).  I would like to have the ability to set this at zero.  I have checked the *.cfg and it shows "PERCENTAGE=0".   If unable to get ParPos to zero am I going to need to uninstall it?

You can do that by setting
 
PERCENTAGE_PARKED=0

in the KDFW.txt file.

The number of parking positions of an airport is fixed. You cannot change that, and you should not want toi change that, while these data is used to position live aircraft correctly at gates.

You can only change the percentage of parking positions that get a static aircraft.

However, even if you have set the percentage at zero, you can still get a few parked aircraft. These are live aircraft that end their flight at a gate, and get parked there when they no longer appear in the RealTraffic data stream.
