Problem with new AFCAD ?

Recommended Posts

Well so I was sitting there adding gates and connecting them, then all of a sudden the program won't allow me to connect them anymore... WHY???Well I tried to delete NODES and TAXIWAYS which are useless anyhow thinking that maybe I exceded limit of number of Nodes or something... the only thing this allowed me is to connect a Gate to an existing Node, still could not have place new Nodes.Now we are not talking here about really complex airports with tons of Nodes just KSDF or KCLE I was modifing.OK well KSDF has currently 50 gates and no more really can be added this one has a lot of Nodes indeedbutKCLE has 26 Gates and it doesn't allow me to add anymore, that is I can not connect them with Nodes, taxiways.. I can still add gates all I want, but cannot connect them...PS: don't know why I put so many gates at KSDF just gonna delete them when I make an overlay :-lol , but that's not the problem though.Thanks

Andy,Make sure you are using AFCAD 1.22, the latest version. It increases the number of nodes you are allowed to place.Also, try reinstalling the program and see if that fixes it.-- 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___

There is a definite problem with 1.2. Lee asked me to send him the export file. Unfortunately I have already deleted the file. I'm back to 1.1 which works perfectly.My experience is exactly the same as Andy's except it happened at CYYZ.Henry

Yes, I got that too the other day (not being able to connect and the long line). I didn't report it as it happened only at this one airport and I'm not sure if I maybe did something wrong. If you export the airport and look at the file with an editor, you will notice some garbage characters. Delete those lines and reimport it. I did have to do this 2-3 times at this particular airport (VTBD).Andre
