I am trying to improve the realism of my favorite airport, with taxidraw.
I use Terragear to check the result before submitting the change to Robin Peel
Unfortunaltely one of my main problem is that Terragear do not take into account
My runway is well defined in the Robin Peel data base (X-Plane 8.10 and later
based upon DAFIF/AIRAC cycle 200510), exactly like defined in official
But the two stopways don't appears in FligtGear.
I could transform "stopway" distance in "Displaced Threshold" distance, the
result is very closed to real world (with the good mark on the stopways), but i
don't like the idea of modifying the data base to bypass a TerraGear "bug".
I propose the following modifications to Terragear code.
It works for one airport, I don't know for others.
It should, but perhaps people won't agree with this solution depending on what
they want to see at the place of the stopway.
In my case aerial photography show it like a Displaced Threshold.
Nowday, there is absolutly nothing at the place of stopway in FG.
I hope someone more accurate than me with this project, will propose the right
and definitive solution, to solve this problem.
Thanks to all of you, for the great job done, to develop and maintain,
