we found in Flightsimulator 2004
while we where redesigning VFR-Airfields Vol.1
for FS2004 we found something out:
Some airfields are postioned differently as
they where positioned in older FS versions.
We thought of that Microsoft did this because
of better data.
2. Example Konstanz
a) Start situation:
We designed Konstanz for FS2002 and took the
runway of FS2002 to our reference.
The airplane if you choose in
World / Airportmenue a start situation
will be placed right on the runway.
In FS2004 we found out that the plane was placed
far away from the runway.
the screenshot you can see the start position
of our FS2002 runway. South of this runway you
can identify the FS2004 runway.
This is the arfield designed with different
coordinates by Microsoft.
Which one has the correct position?
We took our DFS Chart and looked at the coordinates.
The reference airport point is at:
47° 40 58 North and 09° 08 18 East
you activate the coordinate display in FS2004
you can see the possition where the plane is
The position of VFR-Airfields and FS2002 have
the correct coordinate like our airport chart.
The FS2004 runway is to south and for this
We found another airfield which is located wrong
in FS2004, EDMG Günzburg Donauried.
We will design our airfields on the correct
positions in the chart and not at the position
of FS2004. Until we find out how to correct
the position at World/ Airports
please choose our VFR-Airfields with the help
of the Addon Scenery menu.
