I agree, Chris does not appear to have activated the glideslope for the ILS on runway 4R.
The way to fix this for the 1962 airport:
1. Copy the KBOS_62_CG.bgl and KBOS_62_CG_GP.bgl files in the scenery subfolder and paste into the main KBOS 1962 folder (for backup).
2, In the scenery subfolder rename the KBOS_62_CG_GP.bgl to KBOS_62_CG_Current_GP.bgl. If you do not do this it will be deleted by ADE.
3. In ADE, File/Open File from BGL. Choose the KBOS_62_CG.bgl file.
4. Double click on the green arrow at the runway 22L end (that is the ILS for 4R). The Properties box should appear.
5. Click the box next to Glide Slope. Click OK. A little green arrow at the middle of the airport will appear.
6. Drag it to the touchdown point of runway 4R, alongside the runway. That is on top of runway 9 - don't worry, it's not visible.
7. File/Save Airport for safekeeping, placing it into the ADE/FS9/Projects folder.
8. Compile the airport, to create a new BGL file:
a. File/Compile Airport b. Click Open Folder button, browse to the KBOS 1962/Scenery folder. c. Click on the KBOS_62_CG.bgl file. d. Click Yes to replace the file. e. Press Compile. The airport should be compiled. 9. File/Save Airport to save the new compile information.
The ILS 110.3 now has a glideslope.
BTW, there are lots of different possible steps to handle this problem with ADE, but this is the way I usually do it. Others will have other variations.
Downloaded it, perused the manual. Unfortunately I do feel it's beyond me. I'll hang onto it though and maybe try to figure out just the parts I need. In the meanwhile, I can of course fly the approach without the GS. Usually start a 400 ft/min decent from 2000 feet above ground, about 8 miles from the runway. Sound about right ?
A quick guide for descent rate for a normal roughly three degree glide slope is 5 times your ground speed on final in knots. i.e. 120 knots on final is 600 fpm. 150 knots is 750 fpm. It doesn't matter if you're in a Cessna 150 or a SR-71.
