pod files for taxiways

Recommended Posts

Hello,last night I finished my project to build all taxiways included with Jeppesen SimCharts for germany. I put them together in a pod file and placed the pod file in the taxiways folder within the Fly! II folder.The problem now is, that for airports with original taxiways (those are included in the taxiways pod what comes with Fly! II), my taxiways are not loaded and don't show up in Fly! II. My taxiways show up only, if the taxiway files are located in the data folder and are not in a pod file. Since I combine the taxiways with airport scenery (airport signs, some buildings, etc.), I can't use the original ones, if my taxiways differs from the original ones.To make installation easy after downloading, it would be great to have a pod file and place them in the taxiways folder. That's it.Is there a way to give priorities to pod files or something else?Could anyone advice me please, to keep this simple as possible, that anyone can install it, without any headache.Thank you in advance.

Gerhard,I'll need to check on this - I believe there's a way to give the pods in the Taxiways folder priority on loading.

I experimented with this quite a bit, but could never get FlyII to recognize the new taxiways unless they were in the data folder. If the taxiways already exist in FlyII, then the only way I could override them was to have the files in the data folder. No version of pod would work for me to override defaults. I tried priorities, pod versions, ... nothing worked. If you figure something out, Great!-----------------------Scott CannizzaroPPSEL-KTEBAMD xp2000+ - GF4 Ti4400G4/400 - Radeon32

Hi Ken,last night I tried it with building a POD3 file and many different mount priorities below 1000, the lowest was 1. Unfortunately it didn't work - the existing Fly!II taxiways has still some higher priority to load. :-hmmmMaybe Rich can pop in here with some ideas, since the "data" folder is not the best way for taxiway packages sorted by countries.Thanks for your help anyway.Best regards :-wave
