Flightbeam Auckland (NZAA) config
« on: July 14, 2021, 11:57:26 pm »
Fellow simmers,

I have created a GSX config and updated AFCAD for the recently released Flightbeam Auckland V1.0. Any suggestions or improvements are welcome!

Please note that due to the AFCAD being user created, Flightbeam does not offer any tech support when using this configuration.

Included in the .zip:
- GSX ini
- Updated AFCAD bgl
- Updated SODE xml
- Parking list (excel and PDF, they are the same)
- Read Me

- Replaced SODE Jetways by GSX Level 2 Jetways (metal models)
- Added GSX Visual Guidance System at the International Terminal
- Ground equipment placement for every gate to not interfere with scenery objects
- Optimized stop positions for certain aircraft* (see "Parking Positions")
- Custom Pushback for every gate where applicable (my own interpretation since I am not familiar with NZAA OPS and also not a pushback tug driver)
- Updated AFCAD to include missing parking spots with Static Aircraft disabled and a few parkings deleted* (see AFCAD section of Read Me)

- Deselect the Static Aircraft option in the Flightbeam manager or delete/turn off "nzaa_staticacramp.bgl" in the "Flightbeam - NZAA\scenery" folder
- Delete/turn off "NZAA.bgl" in the "Flightbeam - NZAA\scenery" folder
- Make a backup of "Flightbeam_NZAA.xml" located in the "C:\ProgramData\12bPilot\SODE\xml" folder
- Copy "NZAA_update.bgl" into the "\Flightbeam\Flightbeam - NZAA\scenery\" folder. Overwrite if needed
- Copy "Flightbeam_NZAA.xml" into the "C:\ProgramData\12bPilot\SODE\xml" folder. Overwrite if needed
- Copy "nzaa-hhtkfh.ini" into your "C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Virtuali\GSX" folder
- You MAY need to change the afcad_path in the .ini file (e.g. D:\user\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons\Flightbeam\Flightbeam - NZAA\scenery\NZAA_update.bgl)
- Make sure only ONE .ini file starting with "nzaa" exists in your GSX folder
- Once inside your simulator, click "Add-ons → Couatl settings → Restart Couatl and rebuild airport cache"
