I am taking the first steps trying to learn the process of learning to build airports. I've followed Rodeo 's excellent videos, and I'm trying to model one of my local single runway airport YMAV. It's also very handy that the runway is almost straight north/south aligned. However, I am struggling with getting my runway to align with the underlying scenery I created using GeoConvert. When using the center I got from FSET, I end up about ~500m east of the underlying graphics:
My centerpoint was calculated to:
S38° 2' 6.49'' E144° 28' 37.36''
convert to decimal degrees
Couple of questions:
1) What's the precision allowed in the long/lat variable? Is 6 digits allowed?
2) To find the centerpoint in the graphics, I flew over it and checked the game data using Shift-F1, it told me 144.47/-38.04 . If I used these coordinates, my runway was still too far east (~100m). Putting in 144.46, and it was about 500m west. I realized I could work may way back and ended up around 144.468. Is there a way I can find a point on my scenery with higher precision than two digits?
Thanks in advance, I apologize if this has been answered before but I could not find a thread regarding it.
Also perhaps it would be good if there was separate Airport creation section as this does not seem to fit into geoconvert or aircraft/general?
