Jetways from nowhere!
« on: March 16, 2021, 12:19:47 am »
I noticed these jetways at the end of the Delta terminal at JFK.  No buildings are attached. 

How do I get rid of them?

Thanks!

It seems you have a conflicting AFCAD from another scenery, check the AFCAD in use by GSX in the parking customization page.

Where are AFCAD files stored?  Or, are they BGL files?

Where can I find out more about parking utilization?  And is there a way to detect conflicting AFCADs? 

Thank you!

My previous answer already contained all the information you needed to know the name of the file in use by GSX, I'll repeat it again:

It looks like it is KJFK_FSDT.BGL.  That's if I'm reading that correctly.

If that is the case, then it should be the correct AFCAD.  How does one find a conflicting file though?

Thanks!

 Check your AI. Traffic Global for instance adds a couple of thousand afcads to your sim. You are better off to just ditch it entirely and use different AI.

Also remove any GSX customization file that you might have made or downloaded, which might have been made for a different/older version of the scenery.

I did have Traffic Global, but ditched it.  How do I make sure there are no residual file from it?  Now, I use Ultimate Traffic Live.

I never downloaded any customized GSX files.  I've left it as clean as possible. 

Thanks!

 Check to see if you still have the TrafficGlobal afcads leftover in your system.
 They would have been located C:\Users\XXX\Documents\TrafficGlobal\AirportFacilities.

Hi Dave!

There isn't even a folder for Traffic Global in my documents folder.  Could there be anywhere else files would go?

This is so strange.  KJFK is the only JFK add-on that I have for that area.  So, it's a real mystery where that conflicting AFCAD is located.

 That's a good sign that TG was fully uninstalled then. How about look in your C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Roaming\virtuali\GSX folder to see if you have any KJFK files. If so remove (don't delete though) it and try the sim again.
 Based on the screenshot, it's trying to add gates to the regional parking that doesn't have jetways.

It seems to have been corrected.  I un-installed the scenery and loaded the default KJFK.  The jetways weren't there.  So, I figured it was a problem native to the FSDT version.  I deleted a KJFK file in the GSX library in the roaming folder.  Then, I re-installed the scenery and those jetways weren't there.

Thank you very much for your help!

That's exactly what I asked to do in one of the previous replies:

You must have an old customization, made for an old version of the scenery, before some terminal changed. GSX customization are in the %APPDATA%\Virtuali\GSX folder.

Yes, but Dave broke it down for me and told me where to look.  I didn't know what a GSX customization file was, or where it was located. :)

Thanks!
