View Full Version : AFCAD

I just started using AFCAD. I've noticed that many of the airport files available for download have overlays, or multiple terminals. It looks pretty neat, and I would do it, except it seems like too much of a hassle to go through all the flight plans and change the name of the destination airport for ever single flight plan that goes to that specific overlay. I was wondering if there is a special shortcut or something to do this. I use PAI, and have downloaded every auto-installer available. I was wondering if maybe there was a shortcut available through PAI or something. I would appreciate any advice given. Thanks.
If you open up your flightplans with word pad you can do a search and replace of the airport idents. Select Edit, Replace put the airport in to change under find(say KSEA) and replace it with 2SEA. You can click replace all or select which ones you want.

Or you can donwload AITM, aka Traffic Mover. The problem with doing it with wordpad is that most times, you don't want to move all of your flights to your overlays, only certain airlines, or a certain percentage of your traffic. With Wordpad, you're either changing all of them, or spending a lot of time figuring out which flights you want to move and then doing them one by one. With AITM, you de-compile your flightplans, then you can use it to search out all flights to your airport. Then you are able to either change a certain percentage of all flights to your overlays very easily, or you can select specific airlines to move to your overlays. Right now, I've got Denver International set up with United using all of Terminal B, and all other airlines split 50/50 between A and C. It took me about an hour and a half to create the overlays using AFCAD, then about 10 minutes to move all the flights around to the proper overlay. So, in other words, go download AITM. :D

Well as cliche as it may sound I'd like to raise another round.
