  1. OK, that was quite a steep learning curve as it's the first time I gave anything of this sort a try. Thanks again for getting me started! And you were right, most time went into clearing the issues and there quite a few! Most were to do with taxi routes not being flagged as no-go when a certain runway is in use. Either way, in the end I got a working apt.dat. Then I found that the biggest issue was with the airport just not having any vehicles that it could recognise as tow trucks. So I added 1 or 2 per pier (depending on the size/time it would take to drive around it) and a rudimentary taxi way. I started out with double routes on the larger terminals, where each is one way and follows the lane, but that kept giving me "double route" errors. So in the end I skipped that idea. It also took some tries to get the parking spots right, as some ended up clipping into other stuff. Also, when they start turning to latch on, they sometimes still clip into the terminal but given the width of the service roads this is unfortunately not always preventable. And they are the default X-Plane tow trucks as I had no clue how to make the original ones do the job. But I now have what I think is an acceptable end result, giving you a tow truck on all spots within a reasonable amount of time. Also, I ended up adding quite a few more parking spots and modifying some others (to prevent wide bodies parking at the B-pier for example). This file should work with the "vanilla" Aerosoft Schiphol, with no additional libraries required. I am not sure if it is allowed, but I attached it for anyone who is willing to give this a try. If you spot any errors, please let me know! earth.wed_apt.dat.zip
  2. Thanks matchvisser! That is a plugin I am certainly going to give a try!
  3. Thanks a lot FlyAgi and Heinz! I will certainly give it a try! @Heinz: I had indeed seen that version. But I noticed it has WT3 ground routes, and I have Traffic Global so I am not sure that will work. Also, it is slightly too heavy on the libraries for me. I had issues with some of them, causing CTD's. Also, my machine is on the older side so I prefer the "vanilla" EHAM version of Aerosoft, as it looks nice without too severely impacting performance. So if I could add the ground routes to it without anything else, that would have my preference. I will post what I find. Thanks again and stay safe!
  4. Hello Heinz, Thank you for the fast response! And: copy that. It's a shame but that's how it is. Stay safe! Do you maybe know of a tool that would allow adding them? I wouldnt mind putting some hours into it. Or is it a matter of adding the list of points to the apt.dat? Thanks in advance!
  5. Hello! I recently bought Airport Amsterdam for XPlane 11 and I am running it on X-Plane 11 11.41. But whenever I request a pushback, it tells me I should try a different gate or a larger airport. I tried gates on all piers, but no luck, even not if there is a pushback truck standing at the gate. Its not super critical, as usually you can taxi out with a little clipping through the terminal building which doesnt seem to do any damage. But its not very realistic. Is there indeed no pushback, or is something going wrong? I was running it with the following add-ons, but removing them didnt help either: Airport_Environment_HD_213 CDB-Library EDDH - 2020 Scenery EHRD by Flap v1.2 no static aircraft XP11 MisterX_Library_161b OpenSceneryX Thanks in advance for your time!
  6. Hi, Sorry, mein Deutsch ist ganz slecht, so ich versuch es mal auf English. :oops: I have Windows Vista and Eurowings 2004, and it works fine. Only the FMC from the package caused FS9 to crash once it was opened in flight. Windows would then tell me: "Runtime error 429: ActiveX component can't create object". After some searching I found that it was only caused by a missing system file (dll?). It appears the standard installation of Vista comes with less of those than xp used to. Mind you, this fix only works for Eurowings 2004, I don´t have any of the other mentioned add-ons. solution: http://www.simforums.com/forums/forum_posts.asp?TID=20345 Lex
