Tower 2011: Change runway exit

Recommended Posts

Two questions:

1)  I added the suggested cargo terminal at LAX south of runwy 25L. Cargo aircraft landing on 25L tend to exit to the right.  Is there a setting that wll make them exit left??

2) I forgot the second question.  Getting old is wonderful!

The right turn seems to be built into the game.  I have tried all kinds of taxiway assignments, etc., to get them to turn left but to no avail!

it was once said somewhere on the forum that the a/c in T2011 will leave the runway towards the side with the most gates, which at LAX will always be the main terminals in the centre of the field.

Gareth, I see that no one has really given you an answer.

On Tower 2011, the A/C will always turn off towards the area with the most gates.

What you need to do is look at all the gates, both commercial and GA & see where they are in relation to the runway(s).

Take HNL for an example, the passenger terminal are all on one side of 18L/26R. but the cargo & GA parking are on the other side. All A/C arriving flights turn right off 8L because that is where the majority of gates are.

To fix this, & it is not always ways easy at all airports, count the number of gates on each side of the runways & using airport editor delete some of the gates (especially GA gates) such that the number of gates on the side that you want the A/C to go to is greater than the other side. The flights will now turn towards the  side with the greater number of gates.

For HNL, i deleted a number of GA gates so that the pax gates exceeded the GA & cargo gates. now all pax flights turn towards the main terminal, also the cargo flights, but that is part of accepting the limitations of the program.

I hope that I have explained it reasonably well, if not, please sen another post.

 This had me scratching my head a bit. I have the tower 2011 manual but it is too big to attach even zipped and can not find any command to specify a particular taxiway or direction to vacate the runway. I think that is why I had to delete bays on the wrong side of the runway to get the A/C to turn towards the terminal at some A/p,s. I don't know if the speech files can be amended as in Tower 3D but perhaps others might be able to help there.  When tower 3D came along I virtually abandoned Tower 2011.  Do you have the 2011 manual?

Sorry if I am not a great deal of help.

With Tower!3D Pro you can’t add new commands that the system isn’t already programmed to handle. Bottom line if a command doesn’t exist in either game, you’re out of luck.
