Hi Greg,Is this using the default Vancouver scenery or a 3rd party addon? If the latter have you rebuild the Scenery database? That reads all the runway information from the BGLs in FS9 ensuring RC4 uses correct runway identifiers.Cheers,

Most of mine are in Add On Scenery/Scenery but some are in Add On Scenery/XYZ airport folders.I presume RC4 checks all files

Hi Albion,RC calls the MakeRunways program that was provided by Pete Dowson. Here's a reply from Pete to a question on his forum...it scans those sceneries marked as active in your SCENERY.CFG file.So yes, any scenery you install should be scanned wherever it resides.Cheers,

Also make sure using AFCAD that only one besides stock is listed on the airport search results.If not, then look at each one and get the full filename from the title bar. Within AFCAD 2.21 (for FS9) there is a lists menu feature and you can pick runways to let the list for that .bgl file. If you find an extra (more than stock) afcad .bgl with the wrong runway list, locate the file and rename it. FS will on startup reindex your scenery files.AFCAD 2.21 is freeware and in the utilities section of the AVSIM library.
