Runway Lighting Explained

Whether you want to create a custom runway or an entire airport, this is your tutorial for runway lighting.

Note: This is not a complete TSC file, it is only the section for the runway definition.

TSC Runway Section Definition
<[tmsimulator_runway][element][0] definitions for the first runway
<[vector2_float64][endpoint1][-118.6856648 39.404029]> lon lat coordinate of runway end1
<[vector2_float64][endpoint2][-118.7139702 39.4355831]> lon lat coordinate of opposite runway end
<[vector2_float64][threshold1][-118.6856648 39.404029]> lon lat of threshold light
<[vector2_float64][threshold2][-118.7139702 39.4355831]> lon lat of opposite threshold light
<[float64][width][61]> runway width in meters
<[string8][name1][31L]> runway number in direction 1
<[string8][name2][13R]> runway number in opposite direction
<[string8][appltsys1][alsf-1]> Approach Lighting System in direction 1
<[string8][appltsys2][std]> Approach Lighting System on opposite side
<[string8][papi1][left]> PAPI light in direction 1
<[string8][papi2][left]> PAPI light on opposite side
<[string8][reil1][reil_uni]> REIL in direction 1
<[string8][reil2][reil_uni]> REIL on opposite side
