Afcad Help for Runway Taxiway

Recommended Posts

Hi,I've been making a relistic Afcad file for Belfast aldergrove, but I can't seem to make the AI traffic take the red route show in the picture after landing on runway 25. In real life aircraft land on runway 25 and taxi down the runway and turn off right onto Runway 35 or the start of 17 but I can't make it do this in my Afcad.Can anyone help and explain if it's possible and how to do it?http://members.lycos.co.uk/electronicplayground/egaa.jpgMany ThanksAdeyhttp://members.lycos.co.uk/electronicplayg...0easydriver.jpg[image]http://members.lycos.co.uk/electronicplayground/forum/files/700easydriver.jpg[/image]

Do you think you could attach your afcad as a zip file? It is difficult to see the taxiways on your pic.George

I'm working on it. The main problem is that AI always take the nearest exit. A Hercules stops so quickly it turns round and exits at taxiway A. If you close taxiways A & B it taxis via rwy 17/35 (your red line). However, with A & B open, a VC-10 or Concorde ignores rwy 17/35 and exits at taxiway D. Perhaps adding a few more nodes on the centreline may help to slow the aircraft so that it exits via 17/35.George

Hi there!Read the second part of this article about how an airport is made; it may help you making it more realistic; for instance, concerning the holding positions that in the pic you provided seem too close to runway center line: http://www.skycolors.com/paper_the-airport.htmCheers

Holding positions close to the runway will have little effect, too far away and the aircraft will not take off.George
