Hello!

I am working on creating a facility file for TWR controllers up at PANC... I have the file all done, with no radar coverage, due to the airport's lack of radar certification.

All videomaps are loaded and working fine, however, I have been unable to figure out a way to get static text (in this case, taxiways) to be a videomap that I may enable. If there's any way to do this, help would be appreciated.

Before you respond saying I shouldn't be using vSTARs for TWR Wink , understand that it is for use with the proxy server, to enable controllers to set up a virtual tower view, and has been built from the start with this in mind. It does, in all other ways, work for TWR control.

I look forward to hearing from you all. Thanks.

vSTARS does not support static text.

I don't know why I would say that ... many real towers use STARS consoles, even those that aren't radar certified. And I specifically built features into the latest beta release for tower controlling such as a flight strip bay, ASDE-X displays, and the proxy server for connecting vPilot as a tower view.

Thanks, Ross...

So should I make a sector file that has static text as procedures in SIDs/STARs, and move them to a videomap from there?

I don't know what you mean by "static text as procedures in SIDs/STARs".

Draw the letters with procedure objects. A painful, though possible process.

Ahh, yes, you could do that.

I see all new posts, no need to cross-link ... I didn't respond there because I have no insight into editing sector files with CAD software.
