Or, if you lose the ''follow me car'' you're lost finding your way to the gate for parking.

My GSX suggestions:

1. Stop GSX closing L1 door when it considers boarding completed. Fenix or other software im using may be still boarding and I might not be ready to go yet. There is no option to disable GSX from having control of the doors from what I can see.
2. The simbrief integration is frustrating. Stop the checks that GSX does in relation to the simbrief data. Too late for departure? Wrong aircraft type (GSX thinks the ICAO code for a 738 is 737).
3. Agree with the other suggestions of separating crew and PAX boarding.
4. Agree with the other suggestions of different walking paths for boarding and deboarding

We'll check this.

This won't change, and the way it's done is correct and not frustrating, and GSX doesn't "think" the 738 is a 737, it reads the icao_type_designator from the aircraft.cfg, which has been set like this, by PMDG:

737-600 = B736 ( CORRECT )
737-700 = B737 ( CORRECT )
737-800 = B737 ( WRONG )

What do you think GSX should do differently, with this kind of data ? There is a reason why there's an ICAO standard to recognize different airplane types in flight planning, and it's precisely to be sure there's no doubt which airplane we are referring to.

3. Agree with the other suggestions of separating crew and PAX boarding.

We already confirmed this will be added.

This can be added as well, but it might take a bit longer.

If it’s the case that it’s the aircraft cfg file rather than gsx, maybe the option to change this in the GSX aircraft settings so GSX will read the code from this rather than the aircraft.cfg

Yes, that can be done.

Could you please allow us to close the GSX Main Menu screen. It is extremely frustrating to constantly keep opening it.

Hi,
Is it possible to put a time option for the "green text bar" so that it can stay ON a bit longer. Maybe something like the messages timer.

Also a personal request / question. Is there a paint kit for the crew?

Cheers,
Arslan Türegün

I think if possible you should make by default no jetway replacement and users have to launch fsdinstaller in order to replace the jetways on airports they want. Because everytime I have to donwload my gsx profile for an iarport and have to disable the replacement of this airport before a flight and If I forget one of theses steps in a hurry it will kill my experience.

The only time when you need to Disable a 3rd party airport from jetway replacement is when you install that scenery for the first time. After that, it will stay disabled unless you uninstall/reinstall GSX.

This has been fixed by PMDG and will be part of the next update for the 737 per Chris at PMDG.

yes that's what I mean everytime I install a new scenery I have to think about doing this, its not seamless.

Not sure how it could possibly solved "seamlessly", even if we had a way to warn you of a newly installed scenery, it could only happen after you started the sim, which means you would have to exit, reconfigure GSX and start it again.

Additional suggestions

1- if you add GSX Marshall disable MSFS Marshall
2- this is coming from a great feedback from my 8 yo daughter. Passengers look like they are going to the mall or walking around than traveling. Add props likes carry on bags, backpacks and sweaters/ jackets…
3- same for cabin crew who never get into a plane without their luggage
4- add another ground crew member to escort the plane during pushback (on the opposite side of the current crew person)
5- push back driver should wish (voice) Have a nice flight in addition to the message being displayed

You are getting there and after a few weeks of hesitation I finally got this add-on. Looking forward to seeing great progress in the future

That's what the "No Parking system" option in the parking customization page it's for.

Some passengers do have backpacks and bags.

No, he shouldn't, because at that time, he would already disconnected the headset, so it would be wrong if you hear him, that's why it's only waving at you, and the message is only a text.

Well most don’t and when traveling most do have back pack and carry on luggage’s. The current configuration is not believable with only a handful with backpacks.
