ThaiCreations VABB GSX L2 Compatible
« on: September 17, 2018, 11:52:11 am »
Rename 'JETWAYS_T1_X.bgl' to 'JETWAYS_T1_X.OFF' & 'JETWAYS_T2_X.bgl' to 'JETWAYS_T2_X.OFF' in your VABB scenery folder to exclude default jetways.
Place the '000_VABB_GSX_JWEXCL.XML' file in: \FSDT Addon Manager\FsDreamTeam\Exclude
Place the 'vabb-xg26rc.INI' file in: C:\Users\<YOURUSERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\Virtuali\GSX

*Be sure to open the INI file and change the 'afcad_path =' to wherever you have the scenery installed, else GSX may not recognize the file.*

This will give you the following:
1. SODE jetways in place of all static jetways in the scenery
2. Accurate parking stop position
3. Accurate GSX ground vehicle placement where possible
4. Correct airline assignment codes for the international terminal
5. Triple jetway stands for A380 operation

There are some stands where the developer has not made any ground markings so I've used the RTT feature on some jetways to point out their gate number.

I've only managed to work on the jetway stands for now so all remote stands or stands without jetways MIGHT have some ground vehicle anomalies.
I'll likely update this at a future date.
Other than that, if you find any bugs, please let me know and most of all - enjoy!

FSDG VOBL already has SODE jetways. You can download the SODE files from FSDG forum :)

Do you get elevation issues with VABB? Jetways seem to be in the ground

Probably not haha. I just installed it straight into the sim. Where would I find these elevation fixes? Thanks!

I had this airport installed but I had elevation issues when landing so I uninstalled it. It is also a very old layout and current VABB is so different to it. Unfortunately developers haven't updated it at all. I use AVSIM freeware scenery which is the most accurate in terms of terminals and taxiways. It lacks eye candies but layout is correct. Can you create GXS L2 set up for it?

Thanks
Ash

Elevation issues with jetways is likely something to do with ORBX Vector. If you have that installed, check the FSDT forum for threads with similar issues.

Indeed, ThaiCreations VABB is EXTREMELY OLD and properly outdated to its real-world counterpart but India rarely gets any worthwhile attention so not much can be done in that regard. If it is just an AFCAD with default jetways then GSX L2 can do that automatically without any user intervention. Check the GSX manual to learn how to make the change.

VOMM, VOTV and VOHS could use some love right now, they're good freewares but lack quality Jetways.

Not using Vector, nor do I own it, so that can't be the issue, any other ideas?

Hmm, not sure. Maybe a conflicting AFCAD for the same airport in your library? Best to contact Umberto by starting your own thread in the Support forum here so you get the desired exposure for your problem.
