  1. EDDM

    T2G EDDM is not fully compatible with ORBX Germany South. As for all other add-on airports you have installed in that region you should be renaming the .bgl's to .off. In case of EDDM you go into your Sim>ORBX>FTX_EU>FTX_EU_GES_05_SCENERY/scenery and rename following files to ".off" ADE_FTX_GES_EDDM.bgl > ADE_FTX_GES_EDDM.off ADE_FTX_GES_EDDM_CVX.bgl > ADE_FTX_GES_EDDM_CVX.off FTX_GES_EDDM_objects.bgl > FTX_GES_EDDM_objects.off Repeat this for every add-on airport in your ORBX regions. If you want the taxiway bridges to work until T2G may fix them go into your scenery library and set the EDDM entry above EDDM_LC_ELV.
  2. EDDM for P3Dv4 - SODE jetway enhancement

    Alright, this was rather simple to resolve, here are the new files that will now require the updated jetways! Please delete all model.xxx folders from your SimObjects directory and get the files as mentioned! EDDM_SODE_Upgrade_v2.rar
  3. EDDM for P3Dv4 - SODE jetway enhancement

    I am truly sorry for my first answer, I was not aware that T2G fixed the Jetways themselves, I will rework my .xml and instructions and post a new .zip in the coming days.
  4. EDDM for P3Dv4 - SODE jetway enhancement

    Let me start with the question if your original EDDM for P3Dv4 looked like this before the mod? If so delete the .xml and the folder in SimObjects and reinstall the airport. Why is there a Taxi2Gate_EDDM folder below your SimObjects? Did you put all files into the directories as shown? Did you follow the instructions correctly replaced all files that I mention that have to be replaced and not replace any of those files that are mentioned that have to stay the original files? If everything is set correctly and there are no double xml's or SimObjects: is your simulator on pause in these screenshots? Have you tried the reload all command in the SODE menu within the sim? The jetways you point out here have no static models, so if the jetway.txt file (that you are obviously using) and the .xml are in their correct directories not in duplicate, then there should be no problems. In other cases do what you do with all software - uninstall it and reinstall it from scratch, test if it is working and only if so, install the mod on top of it. I can't help you much more, there seems to be either a problem with you incorrectly installing the mod, modifying my own .xml or having corrupted files within the SODE directory (installing without administrative rights?) etc. If this does not work please uninstall it, as I warned in my original post, you should be able to fix problems yourself since this is specific to you and nobody else seems to have any problems. EDIT: New files below!
  5. NOTE: Please read this post and the disclaimer carefully. This installation is not a "press this button and get the result" thing. It is farely complex and requires some computer knowledge. I tried to provide easy instructions but if you do not know what AppData and ProgramFiles directories are, you shold NOT do this, I'd strictly advise against it. The night lighting of the jetways used here is not particularly good and if you want maximum compatibility, please continue to use the orignal T2G Jetways. Hi, as you might know, I made a package of Terminal 2 SODE Jetways for EDDM wich was highly welcomed, BUT I made the mistake to share files that were protected under the copyright of Taxi2Gate. I 100% agree with that being a mistake by me, I was not aware that I violated copyright at that moment. I eagerly awaited the P3Dv4 update for EDDM and as many of us hoped we now have SODE jetways as a standard at this airport, but as it is my homebase, it had to get more love than just not carefully placed, non-glass jetways. Now I want to share, how I placed those way more realistic looking glass jetways with you, without sharing any files that are protected by copyright - meaning you'll have to modify your own installations of the two airports used here, I can only provide the instructions on how to achive what I show you in these screenshots. Also I made the process easier for you by providing files that I did create and that are NOT violating any copyrights. For installation you will need the Drzewiecki Design EPWA X airport, the updated version of EDDM for P3Dv4 (it will not work with the versions for FSX (SE) and P3D up to v3) and some concentration, as YOU will have to customize your installations. In the download file you will find my own .xml, an installation and uninstallation guide, my GSX.ini file for the whole airport and a modification file to enable use of Terminal 1 Jetways with Boeing 777 and 747 airplanes. I recommend the use of GSX, as I fitted and tested all parking positions to the individual aircraft types and jetways. Also this will get you SafeDocks at the correct gates. FAQ: Q: Jetway out of range? A: I can only gurantee that all jetways work in the parking positions that I've put into the GSX.ini Q: SafeGate does not work! A: upon arrival after landing, select the gate in the GSX menu, it will then be activated Q: Can you replicate this at other Airports? A: depends on each individual airport, definitely not for Aerosoft sceneries Q: Why not make the original jetways glass? A: move your camera inside one of those, you'll see the jetway disappearing, that's what happens if I change the texture to glass DISCLAIMER: neither T2G nor Drzewiecki Design are aware of this and if you feel that this project of mine is a spoil or that any of the parties involved will take a loss in me doing this, I will immediately remove all files upon asking. I do not want to hurt anybody or any company by doing this. I removed all files that are protected through T2G's or Drzewiecki's copyright and either wrote into the installation instructions where to get those files OR replaced them with files that I created. As of now, while writing this, I am not aware of any laws that I would be breaking or copyright that I'd be violating. If this is the case though, please contact me and I will happily take all files down! If you are an admin of this forum feel free to delete the post if it violates any rules that I'm not aware of. EDIT: New files below
  6. they're updating their previous sceneries one at a time, just go over to facebook that's where they post all their news and where they'll announce when they start to work on hong kong
  7. No Jetways in LFPG

    did you try to uninstall/reinstall the scenery? works fine for me, check that your antivirus is off for the installation and that you are logged in to an administrator account with write access to ProgramData. Also check your SODE folder in ProgramData, likely to be C:\users\*youryouser*\ProgramData\12bPilot\SODE for a) existance and b) under SimObjects for a folder named "Taxi2Gate_LFPG" as well as in the xml folder for the "Taxi2Gate_LFPG_Stands.xml" Do you have other airports that use SODE? Check those if they also don't show the objects that are SODE enabled. Maybe try to register/unregister SODE from all of your installed Sim's.
  8. LFPG is also interior modelled just like EDDM but still has no see-through jetways, in fact the ones I used at first were those from LFPG. I think that IF SODE Jetways will be coming to EDDM that they'll be of the quality that those at LFPG are. Also don't forget performance, this is the first thing any user will complain about and you can imagine what footprint 103 highly detailed inside and outside 3D Models would require in resources on top of that what's already in use. Also the SODE Models they used at LFPG are transparent if you move your camera inside them, this then happens if you were to make the textures transparent... you'd basically have a 2D image that is a 3D model but you simply can't see it wich makes the non-transparent textures the better over all solution.
  9. FB actually stated nothing... those are all wild speculations the last thing they've said about EDDF was that they're having trouble getting into the actual airport and getting photos of it, so they "might look into another project" but this is not official nor stated by somebody under the name of Flightbeam. That is as much statement as we get for now. You can read the conversation yourself, the only thing stated by somebody who obviously knows what he was talking about was that both EDDF and EDDM will have SODE jetways and those will be directly from the developers. I think that if T2G are releasing SODE enabled jetways that they'll be of the quality that the original ones/those at LFPG are wich would be non transparent and no shadow flagged. They are - I think - more concerned about performance and it also is more work to model the outside and inside of a jetway. But we'll see once the new version releases. They officially needed 1 month for their LFPG from announcement until release of the update, so let's just hope EDDM will not take any longer.
  10. Taxi2Gate stated on Facebook this week that they're updating EDDM for P3D v4 and with that will rework the sattelite of Terminal 2!
  11. Hi guys sorry for my absence, the Jetways are not transparent because if the windows are transparent the whole jetway gets invisible, that's caused by the way it's modelled. Also the textures for the Jetway is a repeating pattern throughout the jetway wich means if I add the M, the whole jetway is covered in M's and this is way more unrealistic than just leaving it out. We had a huge thread over on FSLabs' Forums wherein somebody (with insight) stated that it is not fair to share files that aren't created by yourself (what I totally agree with) wich is why I've removed the files. Also he mentioned that there will be SODE Jetways for EDDM & EDDF, current status - as far as I'm concerned - is that FlightBeam Studios are looking into EDDF (and maybe EDDM as stated there) but nothing is really confirmed. I made another set but this is not eligible for the community of T2G, so "they're just for myself" T2G announced this week that they're working on updating EDDM for V4 and that they're reworking the sattelite of terminal 2. Maybe they'll include SODE jetways? Who knows. The update should be out in a couple weeks. Then we'll see what actually goes on behind the closed doors...
  12. T2G EDDM SODE Jetways here

    Hi everybody I made SODE Jetways for EDDM's Terminal 2 by stealing them from LFPG, repainting, renaming them and placing them by reference off Google Maps! I couldn't include the M on the jetways sadly... Please reply if you have any problems and I'll try to help you Note I am no developer, I literally stole them from LFPG in the XML
  13. Hey guys I made Sode jetways for Terminal 2, try them at your own risk and report back if something doesn't work, make sure to read the instructions and the about!!
