reference for airport parking positions names

Postby pjfleet » Mon Dec 27, 2010 7:18 am

Is there a page somewhere that lists the parking position names for all airports, for multiplayer mode (using terrasync).

for example, I am looking at my local version of parking.xml for EGLL (heathrow) and there are multiple instances of parking positions names "A1111" and "A111". however, when I startup FGRun and attempt to startup at heathrow at a parking position named A1111 the program crashes. so I assume A1111 is not a valid parking position name for heathrow (multiplayer).

note that i have not downloaded the scenery for that area and am using terrasync multiplayer. running PC flightgear version 2.0.

so it would be really nice if there was a one stop reference page of the valid parking position names for online airports somewhere?

in the meantime, I downloaded the scenery file to work around this.

I'd say the problem is in having multiple parking spots with the same name. EGLL has a very faulty parking file:
- naming is incorrect (not just the use of unexisting gate names, but also a wrong setup in the .xml file)
- gate orientation is incorrect

Any volunteer for cleaning up the mess? There are some nice (and up to date!) "Aircraft Ground Movement/Parking/Docking" charts available at http://www.nats-uk.ead-it.com/public/in ... d=143.html
