Amsterdam V1.3 - AFCAD Issue

Post by baires » Wed Dec 30, 2020 10:44 pm

Dear FT Team!

Thank you so much for this update, while waiting to the long desired V2. Even though, there seems to be an issue with the AFCAD files, where it seems to be that the scenery is using the DEFAULT airport AFCAD or something like that, because:

1) The taxi lights aren't calibrated and it looks like duplicated lights. ... ew&id=7996

2) Absence of Jetways and wrong parking positions for aircrafts. ... ew&id=7995 ... ew&id=7997

3) Absence of PAPI lights. (And by the way, please take care of EAST AFCAD, since won't have the correct position for the PAPI, back in the 2017 AFCAD files) ... ew&id=7998

My solution was to bring back the AFCAD files from 2017, when the update for P3Dv4 was released.

Last, but not least important, RWY 18L has "touchdown marks" from the tires. That Runway is seldom used for landings, so it should be clean, as well as RWY 09. Hope this is fixed for V2. ... ew&id=7999

And please, add a long line of trees with more trees, next to Taxiway "V".... ... ew&id=8000

Thank you so much for your kind attention!

Warm regards from Argentina!

Thanks for the report, will have a look into it. Can you please check if you have any duplicate 'EHAM' files within your P3D root folder, which are outside the FlyTampa folders? These images indicate that our own AFCAD is not active. That would mean that PAPI, jetways and parking spots are not aligned with the airport properly.

Dear Emilios,

Thank you for your prompt reply!

Indeed, returning to the previous version AFCADs (for the 4 wind directions), solved the issue. Indeed, there's no other AFCAD for EHAM and I only took the new Dynamic Lightning files, in order to improve the experience and enhance V1.1, which is the version that runs perfectly. For the moment, really looking forward to EHAM V2.

Take care and have a nice week!
