Runway Markings

How the markings are applied to the runway. Codes are:

SW: Stopway, no landing or taxying here!
TO: Taxi only, no landing. Just before a THRESHOLD.
TD: Touchdown
AP: Aiming Point The idea is that you touch down on the previous mark, but are on the ground by this one.
150m Marks 150 metres from the threshold. There'd be more of these but the runway is relatively "short". However, if I removed a 25m segment between the two marks, they'd be 150m apart.

The centre line dashes should by rights be 120' (36.5m) long with an 80' (24.3m) gap between them . However in Opensim that's not practicle. Rather, I've maintained a 3:5 ratio between dash and space. That can be scaled down and give the illusion of an accurate look.

The idea is that the pilot(s) try and touch down on the TO, are fully down by the AP, and hopefully fully landed before they get to the Threshold at the other end of the runway.

What's still missing ts runway ID numbers, which should just be after a threshold. The yellow borderline runs from right/south to left/north (or 0°, and the runway is at a 10° angle. The number at the right would be 01, and to the left would be 19. They'll be added next.
Runway Texture Set Preview
So I spent some time yesterday making some Airport Runway textures yesterday. The contact sheet shows:

TOP: Touch Down markings; Threshold 25m; Threshold 20m; Threshold 15m;

MIDDLE: Threshold 10m; no landing zone; no landing but taxying OK; plain runway section.

BOTTOM: Aiming point; 150m mark (2 bars); and 150m mark (1 bar)

Now of course you probably know that there is NO thresholds for 15 and 10m, but this is for OpenSim and most times the things in that are mostly representative rather than entirely accurate, especially if you run out of space.

Although I downloaded heaps of guides, I found the one at Virtual Airways FAA regulations tell you how to paint Thresholds and other markings, but they don't tell you what they're for!
TDOR WCP Callout 2014

Who's going to contribute to this year's TRANSGENDER DAY OF REMEMBRANCE WEBCOMIC PROJECT?

Just what is the Transgender Day of Remembrance Webcomic Project (TDOR  WCP)? As you probably know, TDOR is heald annually on 20th November. As  the "About page" of The INTERNATIONAL TRANSGENDER DAY OF REMEMBRANCE  WEBSITE puts it...  

The Transgender Day of Remembrance was set aside to memorialize those who  were killed due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice. The event is  held in November to honor Rita Hester, whose murder on November 28th,  1998 kicked off the “Remembering Our Dead” web project and a San  Francisco candlelight vigil in 1999. Rita Hester’s murder — like most  anti-transgender murder cases — has yet to be solved.  Although not every person represented during the Day of Remembrance  self-identified as transgender — that is, as a transsexual,  crossdresser, or otherwise gender-variant — each was a victim of  violence based on bias against transgender people.

Participating contributors of the WEBCOMIC PROJECT draw and publish a  relevant webcomic or image for the day (or equivalent date, depending on  schedule). The main thing is to educate the readership of each person's  webcomic or blog about the issues listed above. You don't have  to be transgendered to join, just appreciating the tragedy of the lives  lost that are memorialised here is enough. What you do need is a  suitable visual artwork that appears on a site (webcomic, blog, Deviant  Art type site, Facebook, Live Journal et cetera) read by others. What  matters is sharing your concerns in an artistic fashion, so that others  can hear of the Transgender Day of Remembrance.   

It is a fact that webcomics are often a more transient medium than their  paper equivalents. There are numerous reasons why a webcomic may no  longer be available on the web: websites and authors disappear; urls  change and domains get deleted; the creator themselves might lose  interest, move on, or just be unable to access or update their webcomic.  Circumstances change, and with them sometimes the ability to view older  works. Because this is the case, it makes sense to have an archive of  each year's entries to the Transgender Day of Remembrance Webcomics  Project.   

If you're doing something for this year (or have done a comic or image  for previous years and it it isn't in the archive) we'd like a copy of  it for the Archive. If that's too complex, then a reply to this email  with a URL of the submission's fine (but if you include details that'll  make sure I'll get them right).  Because it takes time to process each submission, I usually don't upload  the current year's submissions to the archive until November 30th.
