Planes only fly in one direction
« on: February 28, 2011, 07:18:42 PM »
I have a strange problem:
If I try to send a plane from the bottom of the map to the top it says "no route". But from top to bottom works fine. The same is true for left-right/right-left. I have had this problem ever since I changed from Windows to Mac. I hoped that with the version 110 this problem had been solved but this has not happened.

Ah and oddly enough the problem can be "solved" by turning the map! ???

Thanks in advance

Does it depend also on size of map?

No. It happens on small maps as on big maps…

Uhm... sounds strange. Do you have any signals on the taxiways? It happened to me yesterday something similar while playing with one-way signals in airport, in order to combine different runways. I can't think of anything else at the moment :-/

Is the airport maybe close to the border of the map?

I had at first signals on the taxiways but then removed them as I already thought it could have something to do with it. The problem persists.
As to the closeness to the border: it depends on your definition of close – I think 15 tiles should suffice…

Ehm, odd question: It is by far to big to put it as an attachment. Do you know a filehosting service I could use?

Txiways should not be connected to end of runways. Dont ask me why, after connection taxiway to middle tile of runway, the plane flies again,

Thanks very much, now it works perfectly.

On the other hand is there a tutorial for the construction of airports? Could be helpful.

It's very short, but you could find an airport tutorial here : http://www.simutrans-france.fr.nf/doku.php?id=en:aeroports

Does'nt need to be exactly in the middle. two - three tiles from the end will suffice and look better than being stuck in the middle.
My appologies to Dwachs.

See the starter's guide: http://forum.simutrans.com/index.php?topic=1239.0
See the reference manual: http://forum.simutrans.com/index.php?topic=726.0

Both are a little bit out of date (102.0 version), but most of it still holds true.
