I think it'll work if you divide the airport into separate smaller airports -- one for each concorse, and change the flightplans so each livery goes to it's own concourse/airport.I don't know how this will affect runway usage, though.

>I don't know how this will affect runway usage, though.It shouldn't be a problem as long as the only difference between "airports" is the gates. Use the same base afcad file for all of them so that they have the same taxiway/runway configuration, but simply include only the particular gates you want used in each "airport". I'm sure somebody can explain this better.MikeKOCF

But if all the "airports" had the same runway, wouldn't planes going to each one land simultaneously?

Yes they will. Keep the traffic density low enough so this is not a problem.-- Tom GibsonCalifornia Classic Propliners: http://members.aol.com/tgfltsim/index.htmlAlcoHauler Locomotive Page: http://members.aol.com/alcohauler/home/alcohaul.htmlFreeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.com/ San Diego Model RR Museum: http://www.sdmodelrailroadm.com/Drop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___

But one of the advantages of AFCAD is that you can make each "airport" land on a specific runway, if you like. At least at larger airports you can have them landing on at least two different runways. And at very large airports, you can also split takeoffs and landings onto separate runways.The TTools forum here at AVSIM has many posts on this subject.Hope this helps,-- Tom GibsonCalifornia Classic Propliners: http://members.aol.com/tgfltsim/index.htmlAlcoHauler Locomotive Page: http://members.aol.com/alcohauler/home/alcohaul.htmlFreeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.com/ San Diego Model RR Museum: http://www.sdmodelrailroadm.com/Drop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___
