Hi, Im a new member, do any of you have any experience with something like this?
Im using stock FSX SE, am I ok to fly with default scenery? I have not found documentation on this
I have connected as observer a few times and I have noted the following
-I see planes parked and taxing out of the airport perimeter and into grass/houses etc
-This was at Berlin Brandeburg airport, cross referencing with google maps shows that there is no terminal or apron in 2023 in the location I saw the planes in (south of both runways)
Fearing that connecting might cause runway incursions even if I showed myself on the apron, I refrained from doing so
Today I have connected to the luxemburg airport (as ‘OPS 3’, a ground vehicle doing a runway inspection, kudos to the controller for playing along) and asked for feedback to the controller and I have found the following
-The taxiway signs on my screen MOSTLY match what the controller sees
-The controller reports seeing me slightly north of the location I show myself in
-After running the whole lenght of the runway, I am reported being slightly north of centerline on both runway ends. This seems to exclude magnetic declination (stock scenery from 2006) as the cause of the problem
-I see other traffic as taxing onto the grass, east and south of its reported position
-The controller reports my taxi/drive back to the GA apron as ‘good’
-I have no indication whatsoever of gates/stands and I would rely on charts that often do not match what I see in my sim
-I have then connected to KORD as observer and… It seems fine? Planes parked at gates and landing on runways
Given all of this, am I still good to play? Are these issues circumventable or allowed as “Sim-ism” or would they be too disruptive to others’ environment?
The world FSX package documentation states that, despite being able to update navdata to current AIRAC, it would not change airport layouts, so I do not know how I could solve this
