Misaliged Jetway/Parking Spaces

Postby bribeth » Wed Jun 19, 2019 6:40 pm

Good morning,

I have this problem with alot of default airports. The jetways and/or parking is misaligned. I thought it was a FSDT problem at first, but not sure it is. I cannot find any conficting AFCAD's as far as I know. This is in BIKF. Any ideas? (I just updated my scenery today).

Could it be, the jetways on your picture are for a 3rd party scenery, not for the default? The 3rd party scenery could be shifted a bit. Sometimes the default is not on the exact place, where 3rd party sceneries are mostly perfectly placed. So if the jetways (GSX-SODE) are made for this, I would expect a picture like this.

P.S. On my BIKF the jetways are on the buildings. I did never touch BIKF

Default KBIF has no gates.

Nearby airport, KELP does have gates/SODE jetways.

I am trying to parse your problem description and I can't... you first imply a default BIKF and then you say you updated scenery... is it still a default BIKF? Why did you update scenery and precisely what scenery did you update?

Why did you suspect FSDT if this is a default scenery? I'm so confused.

Finally, those gates do look like the default GSX L2 SODE replacements for default jetways and this could be a botched attempt to use the FSDT GSX L2 product, which will place the SODE jetways at the location of the default jetways after selecting to exclude default and then using the FSDT GSX Control Panel to compile the exclude bgl file.

Perhaps this belongs in the FSDT forum?

Sorry I didnt make it clear,

This is with the ORBX Iceland Demo. I blamed FSDT because when I disabled the SODE Jetways and went back to default, the default ones were in the right place. It has been seen at a couple airports but this one is the most obvious.

Thats a landclass product I highly assume. There is no airport shown in ORBX Iceland Demo. Also on your pictures, it looks like a default airport regarding the buildings.

Now I guess you have GSX2 Jetway for some commercial scenery of BIKF and becaues the corresponding 3rd party scenery is missing, you have this problem. That is because you mentioned FSDT.

As I said before, I checked the place on my P3D4.5 HF1 and it looks the same, but the jetways are correctly on the buildings. I even see the same taxiway fault below the aircraft.

I had an issue with no Jetways at default KCLE. It turned out that UTX repositioned the airport slightly causing the gate problem. I moved KCLE out of the repositioned airport list in the UTX interface.

I also had an issue with mis-aligned parking spaces at a freeware KORD causing problems with GSX services. GSX by default, when it scans airport files, ignores bgl's over a certain size (assumes they are not airports). There is a way to increase the size of the bgl that is read---a bit complicated to explain, but if you search a bit the answers are on the GSX forums.

This is what I see at default P3D BIKF with SODE jetways.

It is not a problem to replace the default jetways with sode jetways but with jetways specificaly added and moved to match another than the default scenery. I only know Aerosoft Keflavik. Ini Builds made a sode replacement for this product. If you use this for the default scenery, that could result in this picture.
