Exclude file AFcad VOHS Rajiv Gandhi APT Hyderabad
« on: March 25, 2008, 08:25:20 PM »
Hi Guys ,

Following the disgrace of KLM873 last sunday morning above Hyderabad, India, unaware of
the opening of new Rajiv Gandhi Intl airport ( VOHS ), and closure of the old airport VOHY ,
I have made an AFcad ( default scenery ) for my own use, but I am not that familiar with excluding files.

Can anybody help me with an exclude file, ( AF2_VOHS attached )

Cheers,
Silvester

Hehehehe.. I read about that one..
I guess somebody will have his/her ass kicked for that oversight...
I think I read the plane arrived at Mumbai eventually?

As for the question, I'm a dumbass with sceneries and AFCADS, so unfortunately no help from me.

I have a grandson's birthday party this evening - but when I get home - I'll take a look at what you need.

Do you also want an airport background polygon file?

Also, do you have access to the current / new approach charts?

We'd need those before we could make the ATC aware that there are non-visual approaches for inbound aircraft?

Edit - no wonder he could not land - there are no lights on the runway !!!  ;)

.. Ehhh  .. Whoops  :-[

Haven't thought about that in the AFcad .
Not sure, have no data on the real thing, assume it's about the same as VOHY.
Correct zip attached.

Glad someone like you reads this topic, Reggie, one of the few true cracks on AFcad .
For charts go to : http://www.jeppesen.com/wlcs/index.jsp?section=resources&content=hubwatch.jsp

Thanks,
Silvester

Attached is a Zip with you v2 AFCAD, and exclude and a flatten file.

I'm seeing an issue in FS2004 and FSX with a lake under part of the ramp and stream crossing under the taxiway and runway.

I'm not sure I can eliminate those. It may be better to move everything about 100M south.

I'll work on the background polygon, adding generic library objects for the VOR and ILS localisers and GP transmitter.  I might be able to throw up a generic terminal building.

I had to spend the weekend back home - parents old and my mom has end-stage Altzheimer's.

What about moving the entire airport about 300M south to avoid the lake?

Edit: I'll be away from the internet and FS for the next several days - can't get to this until late in the weekend or next weekend. Mom's battle ended today.

My condolences.

I lost my father 2 years ago, and it certainly hits you harder than one can imagine :'(

My condolences Reggie. I've been there with my dad. Luckily where I lived, the local health authority classes it as a terminal illness. A horrible thing to watch someone you love falling apart, sometimes the folloowing day being much worse than the previous one.

Hi Folks :)
 
Please don't worry about VOHS and the coming new Bangalore, I have both sceneries in my pipeline as part of my Jetways&Terminals program. Hyderabad is done, I'm going to upload it to my website tonight. Active forum threads for latest info are at PAI, AVSIM and FlightExpress (german), btw.

@ Reggie. My dad never forgot his kids, their wives were another matter. "Who's this tart?" was the often asked question. It's not easy now bud, but you'll learn to laugh at what mum did. Not in a nasty way, just fond memories.

VOHS,N17* 14.42',E78* 25.82',2024
 
You can still get charts for VOHS at Jeppesen Hubwatch.

Hi KampfHase :)
 
Beijing? I'm afraid, it would require lots of time and a self-brain-wash before I could do this megalomania-terminal!
