Issues with KPHX (#NyergesDesign)

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if I've seen this issue at any or the airports or not.

When you click on an arriving plane you can see their terminal highlighted. However at KPHX, after issuing a TAXI TO RAMP command some planes are actually end up going to a different terminal. I've attached a couple of screenshots.

Makes more sense that it is a sim engine issue and not a specific airport issue. Thanks for sharing. 

I'll create a new thread directed to FeelThere and point them to our posts.

I found another issue with KPHX. (Might be an issue with calculating the taxi path.)

I had FDX1262 (M11/H) ready for push, so I assigned it to expect runway 7L. It returned "Unable to takeoff from this runway. The runway is too short."
So I assigned it to expect runway 8, and FDX1262 repeated the command. But nothing happened. It stood at it's parking spot closest to H forever without moving and effectively blocking another UPS857, that spawned a few minutes later. It seems like it took too long for the FDX to calculate the waypoints to runway 8, since this would have been H H4 G4 F F6 E6 T C C1 B1.
I had to delete the FDX to get the UPS moving - which then, after pushback, took a wild ride through the nothingness parallel to H directing 250°, starting at the FDX1262 gate (!), until I told it to hold and repeated the order ("UPS857 RUNWAY 7L TAXI VIA H H3 G3 F F3").

(I'd provide the logs, but the forum won't let me, since I'm a newbie, as it seems, who can only attach 20-kB files (the image alone is 1,633 kB, plus 756 kB game.log, plus 523 kB output_log.txt. It was around 19:50.)

Addition (2017/12/24 23:36 UTC):
A minor issue is aircraft landing on runway 8 that are already successfully landed behind B6 always exit at B8; none of them ever exits at B7 (which sometimes leads to a go-around for an approaching aircraft, when the two are separated 5 miles only). Or does that have a specific reason?

Just an addition

Craig,

I have just seen this this twice in a one hour session at KPHL.

Hi Craig,

 

Was it happened on a second screen (did you pop the radar out and moved to another screen) or it was in a single screen?

 

Thank you

 

Vic

Vic, I always have my ADIRS on a second monitor so I'm not sure if this happens on a single screen or not.

Thanks, Craig

Vic,
I can confirm that the above issue is a multi-monitor issue only. It worked fine when using a single screen. 

Just for grins, I tried it with the ADIRS inside the main window and an ADIRS on a second screen. The ADIRS within the main screen worked fine, the ADIRS on the second screen had issues.

Thanks, Craig

Thank you Craig, we verified it, unfortunately a bug. We are working on an SP now, it will be part of the fixes.
