[FS9] Some more things noticed.

Post by Antony M. » Mon Aug 08, 2011 7:40 am

Hello again. I would like to inform you about some more things that i noticed in the scenery that don't match to the reality. Of course they are not vital but "just for the history".
I want to mention that I only post this just to help and say what i noticed and not to claim that the scenery is not excellent.

As you can see in the charts next to K there are 2 more smaller taxiways. The taxiways are of different colour although in the scenery both of them are red.
More to mention the prementioned on another topic about the not staight taxiway lines.

I didn't have clear photos of that area. The chart never made scene so I went with what little I could see in few the photos I had.
I even watched video & there was nothing like what is in that chart. At least not as narrow.
Get me a few 100% clear High res photos of that pad & I'll change it. But for now, its good enough I think.

George hope you didn't misjudge me. I said before, it was only just to notice it and nothing but nothing more!
I don't even have a clear view of the area. I just saw that in the charts and wondered if it exists. It didn't and i just came up here to say: " Hey I found something that might help you". Only and only that my friend. I will see what i can do as for pictures to see if thet truly exists in real.
Thanks for your reply.

Antony

Searching for a clear and "good" photo. Although if you look better ( now it's easier cause we know there is a possibility,
the colours can be seen from googlemaps.

Edit

One picture where you can see the orange taxiway

One reason it's not really needed is 2 Aircraft of 737 size couldn't taxi beside each other.
See the 36M signs on the scenery tiles? That would leave it CRJ, ERJ or Prop Aircraft using them.
For teh gain of so little, it wouldn't be worth the hassle including them in a new AFCAD file.

Yes my friend, you are right. But in the name of reality and due to the fact that these approns are only for such kind of aircrafts..... At least the appron to the right. Don't you want this airport to be the best it can?

I'll change the color of the lines in the future patch. The afcad will remain a single line through there.

Like Goerge has said, yes, maybe the lines on the scenery would be nice.

The problem with teh AFCAD is bigger than lines though.

If you have all 3 lines set, then you will see 3 AI Aircraft using them for whatever reason Ai want's to.
It really has a mind of it's own at times, honestly.

Would you then like to see 3 AI Aircraft crashing into each other because you wanted the 3 lines showing?

I've been developing AFCAD/ADE files with the last 5 or 6 years and I have seen lord know's how many sceneries with these lines included in the scenery, but never in the AFCAD for that simple reason.

If you really need them, once Geroge has made an update to suit, then by all means add them in ADE9 (FS9) or ADEX (FSX) yourself.

If I ever get around to doing an AFCAD for Athens, they certainly won't be included for this reason.

Posted the same time as you.

If you look at the second picture, you can clearly see which taxiway the Aircraft is using.

Look at the wingspan then, and picture 2 of those on the other taxiways.
Ain't much room for manouver.

Tom. I cannot understand what is the point. I don't want George to change the lines or the afcad. I asked George if it's possible to change the colour. He asked me to find pictures, i found the pictures , showed them to him and that's it. Who said to change the afcad and things like that? I just asked to change the colour of the two outer parallel lines and nothing more. I know which is the center taxiway line. Why are you complicating yourself with wingspans, manouvers and afcads? It is simple. I am only talking about colours my friend. Really lost you.

You've lost me?
I've probably lost myself long ago.

Doesn't this reply from you earlier not suggest you want the AFCAD changed too to reflect what's there in reality?

If not, then I'll forget it completely.

Since you made the original post, I've struggled to understand what you really wanted here, I think it's clearer now, a bit anyways.

No need for me to bother with an AFCAD for the place now, thankfully.
