You can't remove or add buildings using AFCAD.

AFCAD is merely aircraft parking, runways, taxiways, lights, etc. Not buildings.

Dunno how to get rid of buildings but i think there's a program called "rwy12" or something which allows you to add scernery including buildings

Where do you get the program from that makes the AFCAD's? And does it cost anything?

Free from:

Filename: afcad221.zip

Version 2.21 only works with FS9, you need version 1.4 for FS2002.

To get rid of buildings, roads, autogen of different kinds you have to do an exclude switch. There is an xml file if I remember correctly, there you can enter the coordinates for the area and what you want to exclude.
IIRC the way to get the coordinates is to use a square where you take the point of the upper left corner and the bottom right. I'll have to research that a bit more, I am at work right now, but you can search some by yourself too using the above info  Smile

Did a quick search on Avsim and some nice person has made an app to aid in making exclude switches, search for ExcBuilder Version 2.0

Excellent. I had a go at making a version of Sek Kong airstrip in Hong Kong as it was in the 1970s but there were trees all over the apron and in the hangars. I lost interest after trying to learn about exclude files. I might revisit that now.  Smile

There's a program called FS Scenery Creator that allows you to flatten the ground and get rid of buildings. Works with FS2002 and FS2004.
