MakeRwys 4.90 Offset Threshold missing

Recommended Posts

Hi Pete,

On MakeRwys runways.txt created file on P3D V5, there are no more "Offset Threshold" values,

Same on the .xml, the Offset is missing.

Example PAGA airport

P3DV4:

Runway 7 /25  centre: N64:44:09.6115  W156:56:12.2271  152.00ft
              Start 7 : N64:44:09.3524  W156:57:33.0315  152.00ft Hdg: 89.5T, Length 7235ft 
              Computed start 7 : Lat 64.735916 Long -156.959986
              Offset Threshold primary: 606 feet 

On P3D V5, same airport, same runway

Runway 7 /25  centre: N64:44:09.6115  W156:56:12.0871  152.99ft
              Start 7 : N64:44:09.3200  W156:57:32.8365  152.99ft Hdg: 89.5T, Length 7230ft 
              Computed start 7 : Lat 64.735916 Long -156.959924
              Start 25 : N64:44:09.8707  W156:54:51.3392  152.99ft Hdg: 269.5T, Length 7230ft 
              Computed start 25 : Lat 64.736084 Long -156.913458
              Hdg: 89.520 true (MagVar 17.000), Asphalt, 7230 x 150 ft

On Runways.xml file for P3D V5, Threshold value is always set to 0,

<ThresholdOffset>0</ThresholdOffset>

Are these fields missing on P3D V5 BGL files ?

Many thanks for your help,

Regards,

J-P

No, zero. They can't be missing as they are part of the structure.

I assume you are only looking at default airports?

Best person to ask is Jon Masterson, the author of Aiport Design Editor, who gave me the changes in the P3D5 airport BGLs -- just extra fields at the ends to handle sloping runways, taxiways and so on. Try the ScruffyDuck support forum, see what he says. Better still, update to the latest ADE for P3D5 (it is freeware), and load up one of those aiports and see what it says.

Many of the default airfields have been reworked for V5.

I should be ble to get my P3D5 system running later today. I'll check the record for the default PAGA and see what ADE makes of it. If ADE gives a non-zero offset I shall have to ask Jon where that field has moved to. Since the XML file has the entry for it but as zero there;s certainly a zero where it should be.

Because of that I still think it more likely that the reworked airport records have had that field zeroes for some reson, possibly mistakenly? In the latter case it would need reporting to L-M of course.

I've looked into this, and I can confirm that it is a bug in MakeRwys 4.90 with the revised P3Dv5 airport records. I'm not sure yet how to fix it, but I will do and release 4.91 in due course.

Okay. Fixed in 4.91 now released.  A well as the threshold offsets with the P3D5 formatter airport records version 4.90 also omitted runway approach lights  and VASI information.

Sorry to tack onto this, but could runways.xml include runway width? I  like parsing the XML rather than the CSVs and it would be nice to get both length and width.

Cheers!

Send me an email about that and I 'll take a look in less busy times.
