    Runway, Taxiways, Apron finished. Starting on Decals. Then Textures.

    Like to thank, Rodeo and Thomasph for their lessons and inspiration to get going again after stopping in frustration last year.

    I use a different technique to Rodeo as my taxi ways are not usually straight but curved (I don't know what it is with Australian airports).

    1. So I Boolean subtract my Runways out of my outside mesh. This allows you to build cross runways really easily.(Remember: to duplicate the runway you are going to use to cut through the other as one of them will disappear)

    2. Then select your outside mesh, go to sideview and cut the top vertices, and delete the rest and then 0 all heights so they are flat. do the same for the runways.

    3. I then click and trace around all the taxi ways using the polygon, using multiple clicks around corners and curves and less on straights. Take note here, you are not actually tracing the taxi ways but rather the negative spaces, so the grass areas you want taken out.

    So you can do them all at once and merge, or one at a time.

    Important bit. now with the poly layer selected in the hierarchy,

    a: select surface, change to side view, and extrude using your ctrl

    b: select group, fill holes, and move it back down so it cuts through your Outside mesh

    c: flip Normals, what you are looking for is your normals coming out of the side when you look down from a top view

    d: boolean knife and cutaway.

    e: Select Outside first then the poly and merge

    4. Now you can highlight the taxi way using the Surface Tool, cut, paste, rename, done.

    I hope this helps those out there wanting to build their own airports. It's really easy. I might make a video.


    Sorry could someone help me. Where do you find this Material Editor in the AC3D, I have looked everywhere.

    I am using Version 8 and have set the Export function, but can't seem to find where that window is.



    Nope the aircraft was rolling I then tap the brakes but the pedals remain engaged, you see the pedals going in, but they don't come back up again and remain depressed. I think it has something to do with the controller, and the setup in the Controller settings. I will do a screen record tonight and show you what I mean.

    First you see the the line in controller setup is far to the left, but when i press the rudder it goes all the way to right and then back only halfway.

    Second I press the brake in and then select redo. so in reverse. so now when i go to the plane and press the brake it releases and works


    Nope what I was saying, is I can only seem to release them if I set it up in reverse. The other thing i noticed is that when the brakes are set normal (so press to brake) and I put the hand brake on and then off, I can then move but the minute I press the brakes they remain in full brake.


    For some reason all my planes seem to have brakes on full. When I go to the controller setup my rudder pedals are half way and when i press they go full and then back to half.

    but if I press them in and then reset and go back to the plane and press them as if applying brakes the plane rolls.

    So something has happened in an update that's changed my setup.

    They are thrustmaster rudder pedals.


    So i went to USA. and Bang it's working. So I went back to the my airports and it's working so weird. I was really worried, as i thought I would a: reinstall and I have Gigabytes of scenery and b: wouldn't be ready for the R22.

    Thanks guys.

    Does this happen to you even at locations that are a core part of Aerofly? Meaning have you tested a flight over California?

    Please post your TM log on here so that I can take a look at it. Also, what are your system specs?

    Hi, I haven't tested it outside of my core build areas, do you want me to upload the TM from when i choose to fly over Cali. if not I did upload the TM earlier in the post , I'm running a bootcamp MacPro with 32gig Ram, GTX970, 8core, windows 10, HTC VIve.

    Jet-Pack (IPACS) I have been flying in these areas for the past 5 months ish as you can see from the previous video. The only thing I did was to download a FS Cloud runway, so it's not as if i have GeoConverted this area and then there was nothing.

    Thanks for your help guys.


    That is correct.

    Yes can change aircraft, place on any runway anywhere in the world and then hit start. It takes the normal amount of time to load. and then just a black screen.


    I was having a lovely flight into Gatwick, (see video this is 10 minutes before) and decided to get some more airports for my new UK build. Downloaded them, restarted FS 2, set up my Nav and clicked start. Black Screen?

    Drivers Updated

    Steam integrity Checked.
