Taxiway centreline lighting

Recommended Posts

May I ask the regular scenery designers on this forum for advice about adding green centreline taxiways lighting please. I don't need the taxiways (these are already in) - I just need a suggestion as to the best tool to create the lighting. Would writing SCASM code be preferable to any tools like AFW or FSSC?Thank youboneshttp://fsaviation.net

The only way I know how to include night without day image is to write the scasm directly. The codes are in scadocs.Here is the Bowerman Field taxiway lines. You'll see IfVarRAnge command that checks time of day...you would simply take the branch for 028c equalling one to return out with no code, and include only the night commands, as shown here starting with the label :skiplabel.Good luck!Bob Bernstein___________________________________________________________________;Bowerman TaxiLineSet( FSVers 800 )Area( 5 %1 %2 80 )LayerCall( :bob_1 40 )Jump( :exit ):bob_1 RefPoint( rel :bob_2 %4 %1 %2 v1= 0 v2= 3234 )RotatedCall( :bob_3 0 0 %5 ):bob_2Return:bob_3IfVarRange( :skiplabel 028C 0001 0001 )TaxiMarkings( 0xC7 -2110 -346.667 ;L start of inv line 0xC7 -2373.33 -403.333 ;L end of inv line 0x08 0x87 -2515.83 -349.167 ;s of Seg 1 0x87 -2535.5 -255.833 ;end of seg 1 0x00 0x87 -2535.5 -255.833 ;s of seg 2 0x87 -2364.17 19.167 ;s of seg 3 0x87 2176.67 900 ;s of seg 4 0x87 2418.333 728.333 ;s of seg 5 0x87 2441.667 613.333 ;s of seg 6 0X08 0xC7 2365 516.6667 ;s of rh inv line 0xC7 2065.833 457.5 ; end of rh inv line 0x00 0xC7 -1091.67 -150 ;s of lh ex.. 0xC7 -955 -133.333 ;end of inv line...l 0X08 0X87 -863.333 -23.333 ;visible line s 0X87 -914 266.6667 ;end of visible line 0X08 0XC7 -960 291.529 ;l top inv line s 0XC7 -1061.67 276.6667 ;l top inv line end 0X00 0XC7 -601.667 -60 ;rt inv rwy line s 0XC7 -741.667 -90 ;rt inv rwy line e 0X08 0XC7 -863.333 -23.333 ;inv main line s 0XC7 -914 266.6667 ;inv main line e 0X08 0XC7 -880 307.049 ;rt inv line s 0XC7 -751.667 333.3333 ;rt inv line e 0X00 ;r x STARTS HERE 0XC7 650 186.6667 0XC7 770 202 0X08 0X87 855.8333 301.6667 ;rt visible line 0X87 797.5 591.66667 ;rt visible line end 0X08 0XC7 735.8333 620.5207 ;end of arc connect to main line 0XC7 592.5 591.6667 0X00 0XC7 1058.333 260 0XC7 962 241.016 0X08 0XC7 855.8333 301.6667 ;rt inv line 0XC7 797.5 591.66667 ;rt inv line e 0X08 0XC7 852.5 643.154 0XC7 897.5 648.3333 0x00 0x82 -2540.07 -330 -2490 -320;l hold line 0x00 0x82 -897 -3.666 -838 7;A3 hold line 0x00 0x82 816 320 880 331.3337;A2 hold line 0x00 0x82 2396 631 2462.497 643;r hold line 0x00 )jump( :gohere ):skiplabelTaxiMarkings( 0xC7 -2090 -346.667 ;L start of inv line 0xC7 -2353.33 -403.333 ;L end of inv line 0x0D 0x8c -2470.83 -349.167 ;s of Seg 1 0x8c -2490.5 -245.833 ;end of seg 1 0x00 0x8c -2490.5 -245.833 ;s of seg 2 0x8c -2325.17 19.167 ;s of seg 3 0x8c 2148.67 890 ;s of seg 4 0x8c 2360 728.333 ;s of seg 5 0x8c 2395 613.333 ;e of seg 5 0X0D 0xC7 2365 516.6667 ;s of rh inv line 0xC7 2065.833 457.5 ; end of rh inv line 0x00 0xC7 -1091.67 -150 ;s of lh ex.. 0xC7 -955 -133.333 ;end of inv line...l 0X0D 0X8c -848.333 -23.333 ;visible line s 0X8c -899 266.6667 ;end of visible line 0X0D 0XC7 -935 290 ;l top inv line s 0XC7 -1061.67 276.6667 ;l top inv line end 0X00 0XC7 -586.667 -60 ;rt inv rwy line s 0XC7 -760.667 -92 ;rt inv rwy line e 0X0D 0XC7 -848.333 -23.333 ;inv main line s 0XC7 -899 266.6667 ;inv main line e 0X0D 0XC7 -870.667 303.3333 ;rt inv line s 0XC7 -751.667 333.3333 ;rt inv line e 0X00 ;r x STARTS HERE 0XC7 650 186.6667 0XC7 770 205 0X0D 0X8c 840.8333 301.6667 0X8c 784.6456 581.0 0X0D 0XC7 720.8333 612.0716 0XC7 592.5 587.0915 0X00 0XC7 1043.333 260 0XC7 926.6667 232.6667 0X0D 0XC7 840.8333 301.6667 0XC7 784.6456 581.0 0X0D 0XC7 812.5 629.9145 0XC7 862.5 639.647 0x00 0x82 -2495.07 -329.5 -2445 -319.5;l hold line 0x00 0x82 -882 -3.666 -823 7;A3 hold line 0x00 0x82 801 320 865 331.3337;A2 hold line 0x00 0x82 2349.333 631 2415.83 643;r hold line 0x00):gohereReturn:exitEndA

Thank you Bob..As usual I forgot to add the most important bit - I already have the visual centreline in place. It is literally just the night lighting that is needed to finish the scenery..I'll have a trial run with your code and see what happens..boneshttp://fsaviation.net

I think you can then best place a line of light points. I think Airport and FSSC both give you that option. The only problem is then to line it up correct with your visual lines.

Lining the two up can indeed be a problem! I remember in ASD that lines seemed to have a mind of their own - adjust one point and the rest would wander away from their original placement. used to drive me up the wall..I'm experimenting with a basic macro with dotpoints right now to see if it will look any good..Thank you again Arno..boneshttp://fsaviation.net
