New Runway Features - Beta Team???

Recommended Posts

Hi all,Does anyone know if the beta team are considering adding the ability to add overruns to runways. Currently have displaced thresholds - there are plenty of runways out there though that have quite large overruns/underruns. These could be added via the taxiway program if modifying the database is too complex. Just a thought - currently added / amended 278 Australian airfields / runways complete with taxiways ;-) To be uploaded very soon ;-)Cheers,Danny VickersAustralian Fly! GroupTupolev Tu-154 Project

Don't know about adding overrun/underruns but I look forward to your update of Australian runways. Have you got the correct information for Perth's Jandakot runways/taxiways? If not I have them for you.Ken.

Hi Ken,Yes I have the info required. My updates will include DEX files for Airports, Runways, Navaids, ILS and Waypoints. I will update Comm later.I also plan on progressively populate each airport using Terramodels for the smaller airfields and will make custom models for the larger airports. It's a slow process, but very satisfying :DSome of the runways / airports in Australia are up to a couple of nautical miles out in some cases :-roll - and that's if there is positional data for the second runway at all.Not to worry - Australian Fly! Group to the rescue ;-)Cheers,Danny Vickers :-cool Australian Fly! GroupTupolev Tu-154 Project

Ummm - I'm over 300 airports now with over 500 runways updated / added!!! I can't wait to get this out the door - I've had a gut full now - been going strong now for over 4 days - I think I can see the light at the end of the tunnel - or is that the doctor shining a torch in my eyes *:-* Not long now - I'm pretty sure it will be uploaded by this Friday ;-)Next on the agenda is hi res elevation data for about 70% of the country (minus the remote areas like the Great Rocky Desert etc).Oh - and look for Sydney & Adelaide Version 2 this weekend as well ;-)Cheers,Danny VickersAustralian Fly!

Hi Johnny,The Ayers Rock Airport is there (YAYE) including the taxiways, but the elevation data, "Rock" and Resort are not modelled - YET! Maybe after I finish the Tu-154, I know you are looking forward to flying her ;-)Cheers,Danny VickersAustralian Fly! GroupTupolev Tu-154 Project
