AFD airfield designations

Recommended Posts

Apologies, Mod, posted on wrong forum first time I'm using Don Moser's Alaska Scenery, kodiak 2002, and have no problems with this as such. However, I'm trying to get AI aircraft to fly into one of the fields, Kodiak Office. I'm using FS2002. I've created an AFCAD file but the name of the field in the afd.bgl is KOFF - duplicating an air force base somewhere. How can I change the designation of the airfield in the afd.bgl, so that for example I have an airfield called 2KOF?Thanks in advance.

Following the advice in the AFCAD help manual (edited for your situation):Open the airport in AFCAD and export it to a text file. Open the text file you just exported using Notepad, or some other editor.Find the following lines (may not be exactly the same, what you are looking for is the format):;; HomeFile( "alaseafd.bgl" );Container( APT 1 ) APLocation( N41:18.7229 W105:40.4991 2218.33 ) ICAO_ID( KOFF )EndCNameList( 409 ) NameEntry( REGION 0 "North America" ) NameEntry( COUNTRY 0 "United States" ) NameEntry( STATE 0 "Alaska" ) NameEntry( CITY 0 "Kodiak" ) NameEntry( AIRPORT 1 "Kodiak Office" )EndNLReplace the ICAO code with your own, for example: ICAO_ID( 2KOF ).Replace the CITY and AIRPORT NameEntry

Hello Scott,Many thanks, I do read the manuals but have been away from all this for a while. My old memory sticks aren't what they were. Much obliged for your help.However, I tried this already. I import to AFCAD but when I save I get this message 'The import file specified a destination file "Kodiak_Office_AFD.bgl" that was not found in the AFD scenery folder'.; Flight Simulator Airport KOFF (Kodiak Office); File generated by AFCAD Version 1.4; HomeFile( "Kodiak_Office_AFD.bgl" );Set( fsvers 0x800 )Header( 1 N57:51.9358 N57:46.2603 W152:54.1471 W153:02.3833 )AI_Border( N57:51.9358 N57:46.2603 W152:54.1471 W153:02.3833 )Container( APT 1 ) APLocation( N57:48.9599 W152:58.3599 46.63 ) ICAO_ID( 2KOF ) ;---- Runways and associated ILS units RwyLoc( N57:49.1167 W152:58.2197 46.63 0.000 0.0 1600 45 N 16 DIRT 0x50 304.8 ) ;---- Marker Beacons (if any) ;---- Helipads (if any) ;---- Communications ;---- Start Locations SetupLoc( N57:49.2364 W152:58.2150 46.63 180.0 1 N 34 ) SetupLoc( N57:48.9896 W152:58.2206 46.63 0.0 1 N 16 ) ;---- Control Tower Tower( N57:49.1069 W152:58.1704 63.09 0 ) ;---- Taxiway and Parking data AI_DataStart TaxiwayPoints( 0 137.50 55.74 0 138.37 520.22 0 137.58 94.35 0 111.77 60.08 0 121.39 41.82 0 138.28 469.80 0 114.72 491.30 0 120.15 526.69 0 138.08 364.48 1 159.17 349.88 ) Positions( 169.34 366.42 19.00 180.1 0x00400081 ) TaxiwayPath( 1 30.5 500000 2 0 0 1.0 0 1 30.5 500000 5 1 0 1.0 0 1 30.5 500000 8 5 0 1.0 0 1 30.5 500000 8 2 0 1.0 0 2 30.5 500000 9 0 0 1.0 0 0 30.5 500000 2 3 0 1.0 0 0 30.5 500000 3 4 0 1.0 0 0 30.5 500000 4 0 0 1.0 0 0 30.5 500000 5 6 0 1.0 0 0 30.5 500000 6 7 0 1.0 0 0 30.5 500000 1 7 0 1.0 0 0 30.5 500000 9 8 0 1.0 0 ) TaxiwayNames( " " ) AI_DataEndEndCNameList( 409 ) NameEntry( REGION 0 "North America" ) NameEntry( COUNTRY 0 "United States" ) NameEntry( STATE 0 "Alaska" ) NameEntry( CITY 0 "Kodiak" ) NameEntry( AIRPORT 1 "Kodiak Office" )EndNL

In my experience, having multiple afd files around like:; HomeFile( "Kodiak_Office_AFD.bgl" )doesn't work so good. The way I do it, is to delete any of these types of files, wherever they got installed. (after opening and exporting them in AFCAD).I prefer to update the default file, in this case it should be ; HomeFile( "alaseafd.bgl" )I think if you make that change it should save OK.scott s..
