Runway Problem In FS

I recently purchased FS Ultimate Traffic and with any traffic program I assume that this problem occurs. The problem is that whenever i am at an airport, the planes are vectored into only one runway when there are two parallel runways. This really slows down the traffic and creates long queues. For Example KFLL Airport has 9R and 9L but traffic is vectored into 9L all the time and all departures are told to taxi to 9L. How do i solve this problem?

You first have to have Afcad2.x, find it at avsim.
Then you open the KFLL file, select a runway, and uncheck "closed for takeoff" or "closed for landing" on both ends, repeat for the other runway.

However it's a better idea to leave the Afcad file as it is IMO, because you'll end up with huge queues waiting for takeoff, as the default ATC doesn't allow an A/C to takeoff when another is on final.

Any good AI package will have KFLL configured so that it makes usage of all three runways.

I have recently purchased Traffic 2005 I think (it is the latest one) and all the AI aircraft which the program incorporates, land well before the runway.



What can I do?

Thanks
Tom.

If this happens within 5-10 minutes of starting your flight, this is normal.
If this happens later, I don't really know. You can try to install updated FDE's or changing A/C (i.e. switching to AI Aardvark, EvolveAI, etc, unless you've already done that.)

What kind of traffic are you talking about? If it's jets, they should all be going to 9L/27R, since that's the only runway at FLL that can handle them. Props can go to 9R/27L, but if there aren't too many of them at the airport, that runway will see less usage. A lot of the GA parking is north of 9L/27R, and since FS always sends AI traffic to the closest usable runway, they go to 9L/27R. Since FLL is close to the southern tip of Florida, more arrivals will be coming from the north than the south, and thus will get 9L/27R (again, FS assigns the closest usable runway), whether they are prop or jet.

If you've ever been to the real KFLL, 9L/27R is the main runway used, I rarely see ANY traffic leaving from the other 2, as they can't even handle large traffic.
