A tight squeeze...

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,I'm designing some scenery for an airfield that has an apron with stands laid-out in a grid without much 'elbow room'. I've modelled it precisely but found that AI traffic halts on entering/leaving the apron because of the promixity of parked aircraft, is there a way of overriding this somehow.I know I could reduce the aircraft radius artifically but that would affect parking at all the other airports (and would seriously complicate things if I was to upload it anywhere).Is there another way round this (it has only one runway and one main taxiway) so overlays would be a tricky way to go?Cheers for any suggestions/info on this,C.J.

If there are enough extra stands, you could model "every other one" to give the planes more room. Or make the area bigger and spread them out.Hope this helps,--Tom GibsonCal Classic Propliner Page: http://www.calclassic.comFreeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.comDrop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___

Cheers Tom I may need to do that. When I thought about it, I looked again at the default radii and found them to be roughly double the PHYSICAL aircraft radius (taking the larger of length and wingspan and dividing by 2). When I set them to this, the AI are happy to get a bit more snug.I guess larger radii are to give bigger gaps in queues of aircraft (although why this factor coulddn't have been programmed-in must be a mystery known only to the MSFS developers).Thanks,C.J.
