Tower position and alt. on approach ?

Recommended Posts

I asumed incorrectly it seems that when you set the tower position and altitude at an airport using AFCAD that it would always work.But I noticed that on approach into KSFO it still showed the lousy default.Any ideas how I can make a change to towers in AFCAD work ?SteveCYYZ

I noticed the same problem with my EHAM update. The real tower is 100 metres high and the viewing sticks near D-pier with a very low altitude.

Update...I have also noticed this occurs at klax, which like ksfo when you go into FS map view there is a tower that can be repositioned. Unfortunately I can't save my change in their either. :-(There used to be a program called Tower View, I wonder if it will work in FS2002 ?SteveCYYZ

The AFCAD tower position is only used when you use the Goto Airport or Create Flight menu items (I believe). I don't know where FS gets it's tower positions if you just (for example) fly into an airport. Also, if you load a saved Flight, the tower position saved there is used instead.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___

I am begining to see a pattern here. :-(I think I will find that I cannot change the tower view in any of the airports FS did in detail.SteveCYYZ
