How do I remove the vehicles driving on the taxiways?
« on: October 14, 2013, 09:53:52 pm »
How do I remove the vehicles that drive along the taxiways? Firetrucks and such. They get in my way and block myself and the AI. In no major airport do vehicles drive on taxiways. I have seen this at a few of the airports, PHOG being one.

 Vehicles do drive on taxiways irl with clearance, it's very common. I'll see what info I can find within FSX and PHOG, it probably has something to do with no vehicle corridors in the AFX file so they take the next available route.

Exactly. There's a priority system, and more weight is given to vehicle paths when calculating the best path, but taxiways will be used if there are no vehicle paths and runways too, if there are no other ways to reach a parking.

Okay, but can I turn them off? I don't need to always exit a runway and be face to face with a fire truck.

That doesn't look like a GSX firetruck, more like a firetruck from the scenery, GSX firetruck don't go over the airport randomly, they only appear after you call them (at the parking).

There's an option in the Addon Manager to remove dynamic vehicles created by the scenery, just be sure you have the current version, because it has been added recently.

I have that checked, and still, I see vehicles driving around on the taxiway.
