[X-Plane] Adding airport layouts and signage

Ok, I'm going to remove the custom scenery and update my default apt.dat file.

I had just added the scenery from the link above when I lost all the signage.

Thanks,

Brett

Jeff, that's a little bit odd. Could be your rendering settings, or it could be that your apt.dat is not the latest. Try grabbing the most recent from: http://data.x-plane.com/get_data.html

Thanks Keith, that did it! I thought just running the updater within XP9 would get me the latest apt.dat files. Now I know where to look from now on.

Now I can get started on making scenery for VNY so it doesn't look like flying into an empty parking lot. I'll post a link in the scenery thread when done.

Keith, may be someone has already asked this - but could you post a video link / tutorial to add signages using WED? I can take on an airport after watching the tutorial.

Sorry, but someone else will need to do that, I haven't tackled taxiway layouts in close to 8 years and the process has totally changed since then.

Hey xwind, here's a great tutorial on how to use WED on the org: http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?showtopic=65834

You're off to a good start with the airports you've done so far. Thank you for contributing to the X-Plane landscape!
