Pushback and Taxi Are Not Interchangeable

On Infinite Flight, when you request one or the other of ground and you get the other one, it is not by accident.

If you request to taxi in a 388 from a gate, and ground says to pushback approved, you push back, you do not spin around in the gate like a top. You do not just push back a couple inches then throttle up and go.

If you are backed up against the grass facing out toward the taxiway and request to pushback, and ground tells you to taxi, what ground means is for you to taxi. Again, I didn’t mishear you. I’m not confused as to how you usually start your flights. But you can’t push back from there, so taxi, just like you were asked.

If you’re in the middle of a big, open ramp at a military facility where all the spawn points are on taxiways from which you are meant to taxi forward and you’re told to taxi, then push…no, just kidding, then taxi.

Words. Have. Meanings.
