Sloping Taxiways & Parking Areas - SBuilder

Recommended Posts

Now possible to build taxiways and parking areas on a slope. The picture shows three distinct levels (runway, main terminal, general aviation) tied together with taxiways. Airport is Ketchikan, Alaska formerly all on one level.www.ptsim.com/forum Dick Boley @KLBEhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/119908.jpg

Looks nice! Is there also a way to get AI onto that lower ramp?

Hi Dick,That is cool :). So if you have different flattens under your airport, the taxiways do follow them? That is good to know.

The taxiways may not be AI capable. I have not tried that yet. They are simply tilted textures (polygons) placed upon tilted flattens (polygons). The true flat areas should be AI capable - runway, main terminal area, general aviation area. I made these using AFCAD in anticipation of AI. The best way to learn how to do this is the SBuilder forum site:http://www.ptsim.com/forum . Last 30-45 days of messages should provide a good perspective plus there is a very good help file with the FREE program.One note is that placing flatten polygons close to each other causes interaction so that texture placed on top of the polygons may not always be flat/tilted.Dick Boley @KLBE
