How to change Runways

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys.First off guys i was wondering how to change runway numbers? for example just recently a local runway change from 04-22 to 03-21, i was wondering how to implement that in FS. And is it possible to get Canadian Runway markings in Fs2004 for all canadian runways??Thanks for your time,Ravi

Hi Ravi,If you open the airport in AFCAD you should be able to change the numbers there in the runway properties. When you then save your changes you will get a new AFCAD BGL file that you just load as an addon scenery.About the markings, no I don't think that is possible. The same markings are used for all runways. You can only set what kind of markings should show (center line, edge line, etc), but not how they should look.

The only problem with doing what Arno suggests is changine the runway numbers is the easy part. It does nothing for the approaches to the airport that will not be recognized with the number change. At present, no FS2004 scenery design tool changes the approaches. They must be rewritten manually.The runways markings can only be U.S. design markings.W. Sieffert

Yes, he must then have drawn the complete runway by hand and did not use the default runway as you place it with AFCAD.
