unless you are doing the same you do not know what it lintels at least through this particular venue

I can't divulge what I know for obvious reasons, but I'm sure you can read between the lines.  ;)

I hope all this talk about NDA's isn't about frustration over GSX not being released yet....Because it is getting out of hand :-\ :P

I concur. It is getting all the way out of hand.

It's an FSX only product which greatly enhances any airport

This looks great guys. looking forward to it very much whenever it is complete.

Having logistical services all across the fsx world will be perfect!!

Wondering if you have tested it on orbx's larger jetway equipped airports? Like AU ones (I do not have yet - mainly because no services). But I do have PAKT and rumor is there will not or cannot (for now) be any services due to the terrain levels. They can not even get the jetways to move.

Thanks! You have a customer in me fer sure! :D

Jetways don't move at any Orbx airport, that has nothing to do with GSX or the sloping terrain of PAKT.

Cool... I love BF3  ;) Which rank are U Junior?

I know its off topic but you owe it to yourself to check out ARMA 2.  A little more relaistic than BF3 Or CoD.

Hello;

I have ORBX/ FTX airports,and the Jetways move,I have Brisbaine,and Cairnes,just select them just as if you were at an Fsx airport,no add-ons,and it works.Looking forward to this product,looks good.

Humm interesting Bruce. I thought they did move too but I do not own any AU so did not know.

Here is how the orbx developer describes PAKT:

Taxiways and parking spots can only by placed on a perfectly FLAT airport in FSX. To enable this airport to have multiple levels as per the real one, we were unable to provide any more than the main runway in the APX. There are no fuel trucks or animated jetways available although I will see if I can get a fuel trigger to work for when Russ releases an update.

So let me rephrase the question. Have any orbx airports been tested.

So let me rephrase the question. Have any orbx airports been tested.

Aa a general rule (which is valid for every airport ) GSX doesn't interact in any way with jetways. If they are made using the native FSX method, GSX will recognize their presence, and will adapt vehicles accordingly, for example not calling multiple staircases or a passenger bus. All thousands default airports and all our airports are made like this.

If the jetway is fake (meaning, it's a static part of the terminal) or it's animated using other non standard methods, GSX can't know about this, and will treat the parking as if it were in the open, calling front staircases and a passenger bus.

But this is the *automatic* behavior, the one that works by default at any airport without GSX having any knowledge of it.

But GSX also has the ability to customize a certain airport entirely, with very small definition files, which are extremely powerful, since every parking of every airport can be tweaked very precisely, and the easiest customization is the one that simply list which parkings have a fake or non-standard jetway, so GSX can recognize it just the same.

Note that, GSX will always be constantly updated online without having to reinstall it and without even having to relaunch FSX: a notification system will give a message telling there has been some update for GSX, prompting you to update, and after a brief download (less than 1MB will update the whole GSX code), you'll be updated with new customized airports, new supported airplanes, and new features and/or bugfixes of the core program.

Quick updates like these, were a specific 3rd party airport will be made to work better, for example helping GSX recognize static or non FSX native jetways, and support files for 3rd party airplanes, will always be free (and of course bugfixes and program updates).

This regarding code updates, they'll be basically entirely automatic.

We'll likely release payware expansion packs too, possibly covering specific themes, like GA/Bush flying operations, Cargo operations, Millitary operations, etc. and they'll add both entirely new program features, and new 3d models and sounds.

Hello;

Here's a image of Brisbaine airport,parked at the gate,with a MD-11,jetway was activated.Its just the same as a Fsx airport,fuel,I haven't been able to get the baggage ramps to work yet,but I'll keep trying,it would be nice to have this work at these airports.

Why does one suitcase remain on the trolly when boarding or when deboarding there is one suitcase already on the trolly. This could be changed because looks very funny
