View Full Version : Airline-specific gates???
08-11-2003, 09:54 PM
I see a lot of people talking about it, but does it really exist? If so, how is it done??????? I can't wait!!! (You know, it really takes away from the realism when you're flying into a very realistic-looking Minneapolis with Northwest and have to go to another gate that isn't reserved for Northwest.....)

its a new feature of FS2004, it is built into the AFCAD files, for the gate assignments.

Can be achieved with lots of work in FS2002 by creating overlay airports with different names and assigning gates/parking to individual "airports" that the sim sees and displays as one airport. An example of this is Manila airport in Philippines freeware addon. Works fine but unfortunately has some troubles with dispaying (and operating) the ILS systems.

Yeah...it sure would be nice to have that feature in FS2K2. Just a quick question. When ya park at the gates...how do ya get the jetways to move to the aircraft? Or is this just a matter of actually parking the plane perfectly? A heavy might be a real frustrating challenge, not to mention the various hights if the cabin doors on individual aircrafts.

For FS2002, go to PAI sight and get the radius chart. This gives you specific numbers for each airline to edit in AFCAD (for your gates), and for you aircraft.cfg which you can edit through AITM (get that too) WIth this method yuo can go through (using afcad to open your airport) each gate assigning a specific airline, adding as many gates as you want. You can place regionals/medium jets/heavy jets for each airline wherever you want them. Place cargo aircraft in cargo areas, and ga planes in the ga parking spots. It's the best way to make your airports real!

You need to get the simflyers sceneries. All their jetways have a docking system to meet each aircraft parking at the gate.
