EFB v2 offers the possibility to use "private" AFCAD-BGLs in a dedicated folder in the Server Root Directory. This has proofed necessary for mainly 3 reasons:

1. Some designers do not provide any ground layout due to the fact that their airport has sloped RWYs. RWYs in BGLs are always flat and therefore not suitable for Airports with sloped RWYs.

2. Some designers use ground-layouts with RWY and TWY width set to zero. This is mainly to avoid conflicting issues with RWY and TWY textures.

3. Some designers do not provide any ground-layout at all as they simply "paint" the airport to the scenery and use the underlying default ground layout.


Users may contribute their own Custom Ground Layout BGLs  where applicable. AivlaSoft will collect and verify all submitted BGLs and publishes them in this thread for individual download in zipped format if approved. Please make sure you understand the basic principles of their use. Whenever such a BGL is placed into the dedicated directory, it has the highest prority level and will therefore be used as ground layout in EFB v2. There is absolutely no influence on the installed add-ons. Please observe the following rules:


1. Only use such a custom ground layout IF YOU HAVE THE RESPECTIVE ADD-ON INSTALLED !

2. SIMPLY UNZIP AND COPY THIS custom ground layout BGL INTO THE FOLLOWING FOLDER (default installation): C:\Users\<your name>\Documents\AivlaSoft\EFB2\Server\AFCAD !


4. After having inserted a "private" AFCAD, a rebuild of the database is necessary, as would be when adding a new Add-On (Database Builder, Tab "Update Simulator")


Important Note:

These "private" AFCAD Files will not be part of any basic installer of EFB v2. They need to be downloaded whenever required by the respective Add-On.


Find below a list of all custom ground layouts with a description of the applicable Add-On/Provider and a dedicated downloadlink. This list ist not exhaustive and will continuously be expanded whenever deemed necessary.
