AI Landing On Afcad Closed Runways?

Sun Aug 17, 2008 11:56 pm

I've tried to close various runways in FS9 so that AI doesn't land on them and end up causing a traffic jam. For instance, I've closed runways 36L/R at MAD for landing traffic, and left runways 33L/R open for landing...but AI still continues to land on 36L/R as well as takeoff (it should only be takeoff runways). Moreover, the wind was coming from 150 so it should have been landing on 18L/R in the first place! Any ideas how to make sure the runways closed in AFCAD actually are closed? And why does FS select northbound runways for takeoffs/landings when the wind is coming from the South?

There's some type of logic that prevents a runway from being closed permanently even if you close it using an AFCAD editor. What might help is removing the ILS from 36L/R which would make it less likely for FS ATC to send AI to those runways.

check out the second post by jvile. he has some good information on how fs chooses the active runways.
