Okay, what is ADE and where do you get it?
And where is the AFCAD?

All I have is bgl files in the scenery list and in the addon scenery/scenery file.

ADE is Airport Design Editor, it's a freeware program to view and edit AFCAD files, here's the website:

http://www.airportdesigneditor.co.uk/

The AFCAD is named AP_KDFW.BGL. After you install ADE, select the option to Open a specific .BGL, and open that file. Then, select "Lists" menu, select "Parkings", and you'll see a list all all parkings, with the ability to Print it.

Thanks.

Sorry for the stupid questions.

I make a rule not to mess with the config files, due to it would be my luck, they would get messed up.

Thanks again for all of your hard work.
I really am looking forward to flying in and out of DFW.

Okay,  I was able to print out the list.
It doesn't tell me anything different in where heavies are to be parked or loaded in the start of a flight in FS.
It states the same thing in naming all gates "small".

Where can I find a list of what aircraft park at what gates in DFW?

As I've said, you should just forget the naming, and look only at the radius, which is clearly indicated in that list.

Inside flightsim, for AI airplane, the rule has always been that, an airplane will be routed at the smalles parking that can handle that airplane. When there are multiple alternative, the Airline code takes precedence.

To know if your airplane can fit in a parking, just check the parking radius (as listed in ADE) against your wingspan. Half of your wingspan, of course, since the parking is expressed as a radius. For example, since a 747-400 has a 64 meters wingspan, it will fit in every parking which is has a radius of at least 32 meters.

I'll probably get jumped on for this, but here goes....It's pretty bad when you pay $33 for a quality airport and have to download an airport editor to find out where to start your aircraft! O won all od the fsdreamteam sceneries and I am happy with all but this item!

Can an ADE afcad file be altered using the my present  AFCAD programme which I have used for many years,

if not are these two compatible with each other, and for both the FS9 & FSX (FSX not yet installed on my PC), versions of your scenery.

The ADE AFCAD is not special, it's just a standard BGL. In fact, it's probably safer to use ADE instead of the old AFCAD, because ADE preserves more data when saving, compared to AFCAD.

A fix for the parking designators is available in the forum.

I think this should definately be looked at...and amended. Can't park my 747 in the correct area without blocking the bays either side of me!!
