The program doesn't control where they go, the dollies go to the nearest vehicle parking spot there is in the AFCAD of the scenery.

Well, not exactly. Assuming we are discussing of the GSX vehicles, they will use this strategy when deciding where to go (or *from* where they appear)

- If a parking of the kind "vehicle" is found within a reasonable distance from your parking is found, they will use that one.

- If no parking of the "vehicle" kind is found, a random parking will be used, provided is not too close and not too far to your location.

- If no parking of *any* kind is found close to your location, any random parking will be used.

And, the same is valid to decide which PATH is taken to arrive and return. Paths of the "vehicle" kind are being given the highest preference but, of course, if there's no such path in the AFCAD, we cannot obviously let the vehicle being stuck somewhere, so we'll then use apron path, then taxiways and, as the last resort, runways.

This means, if the vehicles don't go where you think they should, or taking paths they are not supposed to take, it's usually because the scenery developer has forgot to include some vehicle parkings close to the main terminals, and/or forgot to connect them to the rest of the airport layout using path of the "vehicle" kind, so GSX is forced to use other parkings and routes.

So, the real question should have been:

"Why the developer of this EDDP scenery haven't added a vehicle parking close to the DHL Warehouse, which is probably there in real life, so that GSX vehicle can take realistic path to arrive/go away ?"

During the install/update of GSX there comes up a question to download the latest Airac.
Is this only for fsdt airports or can you update the afcad file?

Nowhere in any of the FSDT installer there's any reference to Airac updates.

The request to download the latest *AFCAD* (which you misread as "Airac" ), is to download the latest version of the AFCADs for the FSDT airports you have installed at that time.

We cannot update other developer's AFCADs, it would be against their copyrights, but, if you report this to the developers, they might be interested in making their product more correct to real world. If not, there are several tools (even free ones) available for you to do the same.

Too bad , that you can not redo EDDP for Prepar3d v2.5, because AS will not.
