MakeRwy detection of deleted or moved parking spots


Recommended Posts

I am trying to determine how parking spots are removed from stock airport data when a new addon airport is modifying an afcad file. I use ADE to modify airports. When removing or relocating a Gate,  The resultant afcad bgl/xml is correct, however looking at the bglcomp documentation and FSDeveloper forum bgl file format  information,  I can't find in the BGL format or xml file how it indicates to delete the stock airport parking spots.  The <DeleteAirport    has a deleteAllTaxiways="TRUE" ... />    just says deletes taxiways.....

Makerwys   is indeed omitting the stock parking spots/gates,  but I couldn't find anything in fsdevelper or p3d doc that eludes to the specifics of what is actually included in that deleteAllTaxiways

Is it fair to assume that since a parking spot ( GATE, PARKING, etc) is specified as TaxiwayParking,  that the deleteAllTaxiways  will include taxiways, taxiwaypaths, and taxiwayparking

I assume so. If you look at the Deletion lines in the MakeRwys log file (Runwats.txt) if think that's the only likely one.
