[BONEYARD] Airport tarmac turns

Post by decaff_42 » Fri Mar 09, 2012 8:28 pm

I was messing around with airport creation a while back and thought about trying to get high-fidelity curves between runways/taxiways to make it look more realistic. I've been so busy with school and the Philippine island project to think about getting this up... :)

Included is my excel file for making nice curves.

Gunny, you're killing me!!! :lol:

It took a lot of fiddling to get the excel files to actually work right...

Cheers for taking the time to write this up. We don't have nearly as many map tuts as we should.

Excellent! I use my TI-84 for such calculations, but an excel file is awesome!

Just what I needed for my California map! Mind if I use it? I'll give you credit when it is released, decaff.

Sure, just remember credit if u use my pre-made stuff, but if you use my excel to make your own, I don't really care.

Just as a heads up, the pre-made stuff took like 20 minutes per intersection with taxi-way lines and probably 12-15 w/o them. I'd just recommend using the pre-made options, but they are only for 15m, 30m, and 45m wide taxiways and runways. Any other width, and you'd need to make your own. Those widths are pretty standard though, so you can fudge a 12m runway to 15m to make it work... :D

Yeah, I'm just using taxiway lines, and since the taxiways at Losa Angeles Int'l are sort of screwed up, I use the scaling tool to make them fit.
