Taxiway Markings

@Pilot_SK… MaxSez: 2 Topics on Taxiways which are covered in runway/taxiway markings thus dups! Plus a ridiculous idea to plaster airports with little Poles with Airline Names in case you get lost going to the Gate. Congratulations Pilot you are selected for 2017 Peanut #3.;

How do I close this?

i think its a good idea,but say you land at Chicago…and those tall green sign are there,it makes everything look so busy and cluttered,maybe if they were a bit shorter,just saying…oh well

brilliant idea

I like this, along with a detailed airport map when you spawn in kind of like X-Plane 11.

Just flag the main post if you’d like it closed, the mods will take care of the rest.

@Omari_Joseph… Joseph I’m surprised at you. I should give you a Peanut for supporting a Peanut idea. Been into that Rum jug again have you. “Shorter Sticks” , LOL.

Just to help draw this to a conclusion. Not only would this functionality need to be created, someone (NOT me!) would need to go in to each and every airport and place these labels at exactly the right spot! Having just edited 1000+ airports to bring all of the gates up to the new spec I do not think we would have the appetite to open up all these airports to add all of these tags. They don’t come free and they would need to be appended to each airport.

I suggest this wish should be closed.

No, we already have enough green sticks comming out of the ground.

I really like this idea. It would have A off switch right?

Sure do a poll. Who is going to edit all of those airports and add all of the tags so that you can see the green flags. They do NOT exist in the current airport models. This is not going to happen.

I understand.

Poll’s above.

This is a great concept, but it directly conflicts with ways that Airport Editors design airports. This would require us (as Kilt stated up above) to go back through and add labels for each and every taxiway to every one of the over 1000 airports that we have completed, and would require us to accurately place each of these markers one by one, because they are not already in there. I can guarantee you that the rest of the Airport Editing team will not be in favor of doing this, as this would take hours upon hours of work.

i understand. I hope that everyone understands that I am not requiring this to go into the game. It’s just an idea that could evolve into something else.

This is not a game it is a simulator. Many people treat this app to be as realistic to real flight that you can get via a phone or tablet. That is the reason why the concept, although a very nice one for a video game, doesn’t quite fit into the Flight simulator genre. In real life you need to study charts etc before you take off so that you know where you are going. Please do not be disappointed by my comments.
