    Re: Parking Position Generator for P3D stock aiports

    Hi
    I only show moving traffic as in reality. Not parked traffic. Parked traffic you define yourself in the airport.txt file. How many aircraft you see is defined by the percentage that you specify in the airport.txt file and or for destinations during your flight in the main window of PSXseeconTraffic.

    Re: Parking Position Generator for P3D stock aiports

    Hi,

    lovely Halfmoon Bay KHAF is still missing in the most recent version and it still calls back to KSFO.

    Here's an idea. I generally prefer to fly GA from rather small airports which often are not equippend with parked planes so far. As far as I understand, there are two requirements for having parked planes at the gates/ramps:

    - They have to be included in your internal database
    - They have to be found by (re-)running the Parking Position Generator over its installed scenery to be included into the "parked" directory

    Now the second step can be done by the user, while the first one relies on you, and I hardly can imagine you to want to go though all those bush airports one by one. Would you see a possibility to shift the internal airports database (where e.g. KASF is missing so far) to an external one being editable by the user and read in by PSXseecontraffic on startup? This might allow users themselves to add entries and, perhaps, share them with others.

    Just an idea, not sure if it can be implamented of course.

    Thanks and kind regards, Michael

    Hi Michael,
    I see KHAF in my sim....

    PSXseeconTraffic was originally meant for the Aerowinx PSX (a Boeing 747). They do not visit bush airports. That's why I've only included major airports.

    What about this?:

    I'll add a file MissingAirports.txt
    In that file you can specify your missing airports:

    ICAO-code,latitude, longitude
    ...

    That file is read when PSXseeconTraffic starts, it will add yours to the internal database.


    Regards,
    Nico

    Hi Nico,

    I trust you will give us poor bush pilots a chance, too

    KHAF (that is the one from FTX NCA) is in the Sim and the PartingPositionGenerator creates a file, too, however, I don't see any parked planes there and your program tells something like looking for KSFO and reports 0 live and 0 parked. While I can imagine there is low live traffic I would expect to see a few parked planes based on the ParkingPositins Generator file.

    Thanks for your excellent work and
    kind regards, Michael

    Re: Parking Position Generator for P3D stock aiports

    Hi,
    In the log there is line like this:
    "closest airport is EHAM, next is EHRD, and than EHKD"

    What is your closest airport if you are at KHAF?

    So KHAF is present in the database. If you have a KHAF.txt file it should park aircraft.

    It is looking for the QNH of KFSO probably because KHAF is not in the QNH database at the internet. But that's not a problem while KFSO is nearby.

    Re: Parking Position Generator for P3D stock aiports

    Hi,

    just set may C182 on KHAF and there are indeed 12 live and 2 parked which sounds good to me. Now don't ask me what went wrong yesterday where I came from KSFO and landed at KHAF. At least KHAF as such does work.

    However, I made another short flight to Monterey KMRY afterwards right now - where I again got 0 parked (and 1 live) after landing. (Although there are a number of static planes around from ORBX Monterey.)

    I'll keep an eye on what's going on here. Log of that flight attached.

    Kind regards, Michael

    Re: Parking Position Generator for P3D stock aiports

    Hi,

    now things get crazy. After landing in Monterey (0 parked) I closed the sim and reopened it with KMRY as starting position. And guess what - 12 parked!

    This is in line with my observation on KHAF yesterday: 0 at landing, but around the expected number when starting the sim.

    Do you have an idea what's going on here?

    Kind regards, Michael
