Regarding overlays. ..

Recommended Posts

Should be simple for any seasoned veteran:After overlays have been added, am I correct to say that traffic going to the "overlaid" airport will no longer make ATC contact with teh correct airport freqencies? Por ejemplo:KLAX: first overlay, normal ATC chatter1LAX: second overlay, will AI traffic here still contact "los angeles tower" and the likes when going to/leaving from this "airport?"thanks!-drew(8-| "TTools newbie"

If you leave the same radio frequencies set for the overlay as in the original airport, the two "parts" will share the frequencies beautifully. There may be a different controller for each overlay, but they will kindly wait for each other (and the pilots) to speak.There will be a few situations where controllers/pilots will refer to the airport letter by letter, and that can be fixed by adding the overlay ICAO code to the GVP file using EditVoicePack.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___

If your using my AFCAD design for KLAX, then aircraft using the north overlay will use different frequencies than aircraft using the south overlay. I did this because it is a little more realistic than having all aircraft using the same frequency.Matt Fox

Also, with my AFCAD files, when you are approaching KLAX to land you can choose which runway to land at and you will only hear Tower traffic on that runway. This is how it is done in the real world.If you don't like it this way you can easily change it back with AFCAD.Matt

Whoa. . .this is getting innnnnnnnnnnnnteresting. :-DI haven't added any overlays yet. . .too busy with all the PAI airlines! BUT! Now that I have all the PAI planes and plans added (whew! it took a lot of fixin' but it is DONE!) I am going to start messing with overlays. I guess I should download the editvoicepak too. I haven't even looked at that yet. Well, I am sure that I am going to run into more questions when I get more involved with the overlays, so I'll count on you guys to help me through! Thanks for the info! We'll be in touch.-drew(8-|
