Volume Overlap


Recommended Posts

I didn't see this in the manual, what happens when volumes of the same type overlap?

 

Like let's say for instance, I am really lazy.. like, really... so I want to take the shape of the TRACON and set it's MSAW to 1300 (based off of the MVA map). Then add the appropriate MSAW volumes for the obstacles. Each obstacle has a 3nm ring around it, but some obstacles are closer than 3nm. What happens when the circles overlap? Does it go with the highest for the overlapped area?

It should check the aircraft's position according to each of the overlapping volumes and if inside one, it would perform that function (ie. trigger MSAW alert).

Edit: I completely misunderstood, and overcomplicated my answer.

 

The answer is yes, it'll go with the highest ceiling.

That's what I figured, just never got around to actually building a set of MSAW regions during the whole beta test phase. Woo laziness?
