Great Package. Only issue how do I get the E-2Cs to park in their assigned spots and not over by the air terminal on the mil cargo spots.

Two things generally will keep an aircraft from parking on it's expected spot, model size and parking code. The quickest way to double check is to open the scenery AFCAD and check the coding on the parking spots you expect the aircraft to appear in. If it matches what is in your aircraft.cfg entry, the problem is most likely the model size.

I tried both of those. I changed the parking spot size to 90 from 50, but they still park on the other side of the field in the Mil cargo spots and the Mil Combat spots that are 50ft. Using AFX should not be a problem right?

What E-2C model are you trying to use and could you post a sample flightsim.[x] entry for me to test.

The aircraft you are using probably needs a bigger parking radius. Try changing it to 102 and see what happens. (The gate radius on the other side are the standard 101.71).

Got It working, thanks for the help guys. It was the squadron coding on 15 repaints of VAW-120 E-2's that were done by Aaron Haase and he used Mil Cargo parking.

Probably happened as the package was finishing up, but one more squadron should be included as HS-11 completed the MH-60S transition and SH-60F sun down with a unit relocation to NS Norfolk from NAS Jax to become HSC-11 Dragonslayers.

A little rearranging of the squadron parking assignments was also needed to get them on the right ramps.

Unfortunately there is almost zero information right now that we could have used to put either HSC-11 or VMM-774 in this package. As much interest as this package has generated, I would expect them to be produced later if more information becomes available.

HSC-11 just got their first MH-60S in July. So there wont be a lot of info on them for a while.

What clickclickdoh said ^ Once information is available, we'll definitely do an update in the future :)

We totally didn't forget about our promise to keep track of the new units that were left out of this package. We finally have good numbers for VMM-774 and have painted them up:

Should be coming soon.
