Hi - is there a minimum length a runway must have? I tried to create a very small runway of 5x5m which could be used as a mountain helicopter landing platform. I did it in FSCloudPort but the runway was allways much longer afterwards in the sim. Also changing parameters in the tsc-file did not help.
Why not just use a helipad easily placed in your TSC?
Just use this code under 'helipads'
Thanks Jeff. But this is part of the airport tsc? The idea to use a runway was because it flattens the usually uneven ground in mountains. As I cannot use the airport approach I will maybe try with a x-ref object in a toc-file. I however fear that the helipad object will kind of fly and not sit properly on the ground. Will do further tests tonight.
I'll make a proper helipad option in Fscloudport soon. Probably 3 options:
1. As -is with no flattening so it can go on on or near existing fscp tarmac
2. With a circular disc of tarmac
3. With a circular disc of grass
I don't think my AC3D technology which i use to generate these can handle transparent ground surface as it lacks vertex weights, but someone with Max could perhaps make me a tmb which could do that. Say 40m radius?
The heli will have just the one H design as presently done.
