Adding PAPI or VASI- HELP!!!!

Recommended Posts

Donny AKA ShalomarFly 2 ROCKS!!!It's me again... One of my new fave airports since getting my ROTW DVD is LNFJ near Gap. I am able to operate the Hawker on runway 36/18, a grass strip 2900 feet long. Only 36 is usable for landing due to terrain. There is a sharp drop just past the 18 end and trees just past the 36 end so the glideslope is critical. I think it's crying out for a PAPI, the row of four lights side by side. I pressed CTRL-E but the icon that had a beacon on it did nothing and none of the other menus contaned visual landing aids. I exited FLY 2 and tried the slice.exe but got the error message "FLY has caused an error in ROTW.230.DLL" etc... Can I get a :-newbie explanation of how to put a PAPI in if possible? Also I am assuming it goes next to the intended touchdown point, is that correct?THANX in advance...:-wave

Donny,Adding PAPI requires editing of the Fly!II Database. This is not difficult but does take time to learn. Here's a link to a tutorial from a couple of posts by Colin and myself that explain the basics of DB-editing: http://saltydogfly2.avsim.net/database_editing_tutorial.htmBe careful and backup the DBs! Also, the instructions cover procedures for Fly! and Fly!II - be sure you're using the right procedures and tools.You will find the database values listed in the Developer's Forum.
