Airports Built on Cities (IF)

Not sure whether this is a bug, but I’ve noticed several airports do not have the field sort of terrain around them, but just city or mountain terrain. KPIE and Malacca are good examples of this:


That’s weird… -________-

That is because those airports do not have an airport boundary. @Kilt_McHaggis, could you make a script and list all the airports that need a boundary?


Amsterdam EBLG
Amsterdam ETSB
Caribbean TNCM
Charlotte KHKY
Charlotte KXNO
Chicago KGYY
NewYork KJFK
NewYork KOXC
Singapore-KualaLumpur WIBD
Singapore-KualaLumpur WMKK

KPIE from the example doesn’t have boundaries.

@Henrik_B @Kilt_McHaggis airports should all have an auto-generated boundary, unless somebody removed them.

All airports should have a boundary yes. Some of the auto boundaries were not quite in the right place. I cleaned everything up to Sydney. I did not see KPIE in the list. Will do a manual check on that one

Wondering if Sydney came out after you applied the auto boundary script?

KPIE clearly now has boundary. This was fixed a while back. Will work on Sydney airports when I get home tonite. Now back to my day job!!!


Every new region I generate contains auto-boundaries. Strange if it was skipped.
A way to check is in the header of the file, there is a /AB tag or something denoting an automatic boundary.

@carmalonso I ran a script (as above). All have now been rectified. We should have 100% airports with boundaries. Now it is possible for the boundary to not contain the whole airport. That would be a visual check.
