ATC does not recognize taxiways

Recommended Posts

I recreated my local airport using Airport 2.60 and in the process I moved the entire field about 1000 feet. I also created a new AFD file and had problems with FS2002 recognizing the new file.Using AFCAD, I deleted the original AFD file in the default scenery and replaced it with my AFD file by simply redirecting my file to the default scenery location.Now here's the problem and a question:The ATC recognizes all the new runways and parking areas as well as the progressive taxiways. It does not recognize the taxiway names however. Giving the above information, does anyone have a suggestion to fix this?Also, I added some new flight plans to the airport using TTools 1.2 and only about three default flights show up. I should have about 25-30 flights but none of them appear. Thanks in advance.Mike

Load your airport in AFCAD, and go to Lists/Taxiways. What are the numbers after each taxiway name? This is the number of segments actually assigned to each taxiway designation. If it looks low, go back to the main screen and select a taxiway name from the drop down box in the top middle of the screen. Do all the proper segments in the map turn red?Hope this helps,-- Tom GibsonCalifornia Classic Propliners: http://www.calclassic.com/Cal Classic Alco Page: http://www.calclassic.com/alco/Freeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.com/ San Diego Model RR Museum: http://www.sdmodelrailroadm.com/Drop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___

Yes that worked...almost. ATC still does not give out specific taxi instructions. It simply says Taxi to Runway 9, etc.Mike

Make sure that the gates/parking spots are properly connected to the taxiway system by a taxiway link.Hope this helps,-- Tom GibsonCalifornia Classic Propliners: http://www.calclassic.com/Cal Classic Alco Page: http://www.calclassic.com/alco/Freeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.com/ San Diego Model RR Museum: http://www.sdmodelrailroadm.com/Drop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___

That solved that problem. Thanks Tom!The only thing I can't seem to resolve is that ATC will not call out the aiport name. The ATIS works fine but the controllers are just "Ground" "Tower" etc., absent the airport name.

If you created a new airport (or one that didn't have ATC before), then you need to create a new ICAO entry in the GVP file. This involves decompiling the GVP file (using the GVP decompiler available here at AVSIM), adding the ICAO code to the phrases file, creating 10 new WAV files so they will speak your airport's name (by cutting and pasting the existing wav files), and recompiling the GVP file (using the MS Voicepack SDK). Details are available at many tips sites - look for "adding Southwest to ATC". You'll be adding an airport, not an airline, but the technique is the same.Hope this helps,-- Tom GibsonCalifornia Classic Propliners: http://www.calclassic.com/Cal Classic Alco Page: http://www.calclassic.com/alco/Freeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.com/ San Diego Model RR Museum: http://www.sdmodelrailroadm.com/Drop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___
