Hi Jeff :-waveAfter you mark were you want your taxiway to be, do you get an error message showing on your new taxiway area a red marking?If you do, delete what you have just done and start again.I get this problem quite a lot in the northwest of the UK, but not so much in the midlands...Why I dont know?I some cases I have had to enter the taxiway slightly different than in the airport diagram or photograph.Hope this helps...Steve.http://mysite.freeserve.com/fly2theuk/aragon.JPG][/divMy United Kingdom Scenery.http://library.avsim.net/search.php?CatID=...&Go=Change+Viewhttp://mysite.freeserve.com/fly2theuk/avsim/bart.htm

Hi Jeff :-wave Firstly thanks for your email, I will give it a try :-)You may have to scrap what you have already done with the taxiway and start a fresh.This is not a texture as you have said, if you get too many vertex errors while placeing your taxiway this lime green quare area appears.When I did Manchester EGCC I got this a few times. I had to re do the taxiways 5 or 6 times it was that bad.Here is a tip... but its not perfect!1 Start a fresh taxiway with your Airport2 Start at one of the runways and plot a couple of short lengths of your taxiway placing tool.3 Save your work, exit and make a backup of your new files in the data folder.4 Keep this up, a few plots save leave and backup.5 As soon as you hit an error vertex message stating were it is on your screen in red, clear that area by right clicking over it and cutting it. Try again!6 If you still keep getting an error, try re-routing your taxiway in a slightly different way. To many errors left will create your lime green square.7 At times I have not been able to take the taxiway to the Runway so I have filled it in with the polygon tool. I just stop the taxiway just before the runway. But this is the last option.Its very fiddly at times, I know, and other times is goes like a dream :-)Steve.http://mysite.freeserve.com/fly2theuk/aragon.JPG][/divMy United Kingdom Scenery.http://library.avsim.net/search.php?CatID=...&Go=Change+Viewhttp://mysite.freeserve.com/fly2theuk/avsim/bart.htm
