Re: Tomcats V3 and Carrier Air Wings Project

So at this point I will probably do one more sanity check and make sure everything is good to go! But at this point I am happy with the new Tomcats looks and behaviors! So they are on a very "short final" at this point!

Re: ai aircraft on a carrier

Here is the third carrier so looks like two departure carriers and one arrival to simulate two cats in use. But since parking spots are still in line with parking spots on the other two airports this would in theory open it up to "triple parking" in those two spots...

Re: ai aircraft on a carrier

So the three carriers in the exact same spot as each other does seem to make for an interesting concept... But my questions on this would be: 1. I assume the concept is to just make one way FPs where the aircraft takeoff from the departure configured airport then land on the arrival configured one.....

Re: Parking Behavior Question

Yes that EA-6 is coming into land... I too spent a lot of time struggling with the two runways issue and finally gave up... Dan Reeves took a crack at it as well; and also gave up... The best thing that I tried to do was to make the single runway start as close to a Cat position as possible in this ...

Re: Parking Behavior Question

Ok so here in this pic these two F-14s (circled in red) are waiting to take off as you can see the second one is taxiing right into the first one and will also stop at the hold short inside the first Tomcat as opposed to stopping a node or so back: stacking.JPG Here are my current hold short and run...

Re: Parking Behavior Question

Ok I guess I should re-phrase my question... I have a hold short line... But at land base airports I notice the aircraft tend to "line up on the taxiway" with only one aircraft on the hold short and the others fall in behind it as they should and real world behavior... But here the aircraf...

Re: Parking Behavior Question

So I am happy to report that the parking problem is solved!! Making sure the arrows are opposite is what did the trick!! deck parking.JPG So for my next question... I noticed that the aircraft that are taking off stack on top of each other and dont necessarily respect runway hold shorts: stacking.JP...

Re: Parking Behavior Question

Ok I see what you mean now! The arrow into the parking spaces should be pointing to the rear of the spots... (or opposite 180 degrees to the dark green arrows)... Ok I will run some more tests and see what I come up with! Thanks!

Re: Parking Behavior Question

Also just as a "sanity check" I do need both arrows; the one going to the node in the center and the one coming off the node? As without the second arrow the parking spot will be considered "orphaned"? Or is having the node there enough to un-orphan the spot?

Re: Parking Behavior Question

Thanks John, So I did one test earlier today and did see removing the push back node seemed to work... But catch is the aircraft pushes back over the side of the deck... Anyway I don't have AFX just ADE... I did one parking spot using the method you just described where I put the blue dot on first, ...

Re: Parking Behavior Question

Hmmm... I don't see any option to make these bi-directional... But another thing I could try is to reverse the direction of the arrows from the taxiway to the parking spots...

Re: Parking Behavior Question

Your observation that the aircraft are parked correctly when the sim is launched, but are not so, when they return from flight, tends to indicate that the anti-pushback nodes might be causing the problem. If they are not properly aligned, they will likely cause the aircraft to park out of place on ...

Have you got the taxi arrows going the wrong way in the bow? Could this be the issue?
When you say the wrong direction? Should the arrows be pointing toward the parking spots or?

Re: Parking Behavior Question

Indeed it is appearing that way... I will try to run the test you mentioned and see what happens... Is there anything in particular that I should be looking for? Thanks!
