Cape Town International Airport, South Africa. This airport update was designed with the latest version of ADE (Airport Design Editor) and made only for the FSX default airport: one file with the crosswind runway 16/34 operating (this runway is very rarely used in real life) where both runways will be used for takeoff/landing and one file as the default runway operation: terminal redesigned, assigned parking with extra parking, Taxiways and taxi signs updated, extra fuel trucks, support vehicle roads rebuilt and many other improvements, airport views are from inside the Radar tower (when in tower view) please view the readme before installation. By Ray Smith.
There are 4 BGL files: FACT_ADE_RS.BGL, FACT_ADE_CW_RS.BGL, FACT_ADE_CVX.BGL and a FACT_ADE_OBJ.BGL file.
- The FACT_ADE_RS.BGL file is the same as the default runway operation.
- The FACT_ADE_CW_RS.BGL file is with the Crosswind runway activated and in full operation.
- The FACT_ADE_CVX.bgl file removes the autogen for the Heli, Excujet and Thunder City aprons and should always be used.
- The FACT_ADE_OBJ.BGL file is the scenery objects file, Please make sure this file goes into the correct folder.
- Take the FACT_RS.BGL file of your choice and the FACT_ADE_CVX.BGL file and place both files into: Flight Simulator X/Addon Scenery/scenery folder.
- Take the FACT_ADE_OBJ.BGL file and place it into: Flight Simulator X/Scenery/Global/scenery folder.
- There are jetway extensions, and to see these you need to add the textures for them, please follow these steps:
- NOTE: If you have already done this with any of my other airports then this step is not necessary.
- "COPY" them from that folder and "PASTE" them into the Scenery\Global\Texture folder.
- Browse to the FSX\Scenery\NAME\Texture folder. Go down the list until you see jfk_jetway.dds (day texture) and jfk_jetway_LM.dds (night texture).
- Start up the Flight Sim and the changes will be present.
- NOTE: PLEASE ONLY USE ONE FACT_RS.BGL FILE AT A TIME. I.E. Make sure there is only ONE FACT_RS.BGL FILE and the FACT_ADE_CVX.BGL file in the Addon Scenery/scenery folder at any time, remove/delete any other FACT.bgl to avoid incorrect parking and other airport conflicts.
- If you have any AI Traffic Addons please make sure they have "NOT" installed another Afcad for this airport as this will also cause a conflict.
- NOTE: when using ATIS with the FACT_ADE_CW_RS.BGL file you will hear the fake runways as well as the airport runways, this is the method used in activating non parallel runways and should be ignored or if preferred use the version FACT_ADE_RS.BGL
- Delete/remove the BGL files and the default airport will then be active.
ADE Utility (Freeware) - Jon Masterson.
Sebastian Kilb for his invaluable help with airport information and photos to make this update possible.
Jim Vile for his Technique that activates crosswind runways.
And my ever enduring wife to put up with the hours spent making these files.
TIP: When at FACT in tower view: go to your control settings and look for the "View track/pan Toggle" allocate a keyboard key stroke to it (I allocated a button on my controller) this will unlock the user aircraft, then you can use the hat switch to pan 360 degrees around the airport, hitting the key stroke again (in my case a button) will return you to the user aircraft position.
Enjoy and happy flying.
