So when you approach an airport from the air, you get an idea of which compass direction the runways point based on their numeric designation (e.g. Runway 7 points to roughly 70 degrees on the compass; Runway 15 L points to roughly 150 degrees and is the leftmost of two parallel runways).
But does any similar logic govern the designation of taxiways at an airport? It seems like they are all just a random hodgepodge unless there's some logic to them that I haven't puzzled out yet.
Finally, when you go into free flight and pick a flight plan you created, then say you want to start at the beginning airport, is there a way to tell FSX you don't want to start at the end of the runway? I keep having visions of one day getting into the sim and then 10 seconds later having a crash because some giant jetliner literally lands on top of me while I'm sitting on the end of the runway trying to get my flight plan cleared and my taxi instructions.
