  1. you need to upgrade your navdata, stock P3D/FSX doesn't include OTHH airport
  2. T2G posts their status updates on Facebook. They are currently updating VHHH, thereafter they plan to continue bringing their old sceneries into P3Dv4, I don't think they gave a specific order for those.
  3. What Would You Upgrade?

    With your $400 target a 1080 Ti? I mean the card is nice but tbh, price to performance just for P3D is abysmal. If you want to go for a GPU upgrade maybe prices will be more acceptable just after the Nvidia Volta launch (should be in may), I'd try and get one of the first Volta cards that are sold from whatever board partner you prefer.
  4. What Would You Upgrade?

    I'd save up a little longer, as the GPU market has been influenced so heavily by cryptocurrency mining to where any GPU I would recommend is far off your 400$ price point. With the Meltdown Kernel bug on Intel I'd also advise you to stay on your old CPU and maybe - rather than upgrading - fiddle with your existing hardware to reach max stable OC's. P3D has been getting - at least on my system - huge performance increases through increased clockspeeds which is why I would tend to stay with Intel over switching to Ryzen - except of course if the new ones have greater single core performance. For now Intel seems to still be king of the hill in terms of single core performance. Also maybe consider using lower GPU settings first, to see what performance you can get out of P3D. In any case you'll still run into the sim's limitations even on the latest hardware. Once either GPU prices normalize I'd be looking at Nvidia's Volta cards, or if Intel sorts out their Kernel problems this year, you might be able to pick up a CPU with high core speed.
  5. EDDM and ORBX GES

    Uninstall and then reinstall EDDM, SimMarket installers will, depending if special files for GEN/GES are provided, use those upon reinstallation (JustSim, DigitalDesign for example). Rename all EDDM files in ORBX>FTX_EU>FTX_EU_GES_05_SCENERY>scenery from .bgl to .off Move the EDDM-LC-ELV in your scenery library below the EDDM entry, so the layering is in order from top to bottom EDDM>EDDM-LC-ELV>EDDM-TERRAIN
  6. EDDM for P3Dv4 - SODE jetway enhancement

    New files (again) Changelog: - more diverse jetway positions - removed cones in aircraft positions - added dynamic lighting mod (see screenshot below) (FlyTampa or JustSim v4 scenery required) - added performance friendly night texture for DL users - minor adjustments to the GSX .ini - simplified installation process This is a stand-alone package, it requires all original copyrighted files by T2G, Drzewiecki and optionally FT or JS. It should work in all simulators that support SODE. EDDM_SODE_ENHANCEMENT_v2.2.rar
  7. EDDM for P3Dv4 - SODE jetway enhancement

    It is cross MS-Sim compatible! Did you install SODE? I will not share anything protected under copyright, the jetways fall under that. AND If you want EPWA jetways at EDDM you absolutely need to follow the instructions. The entire post is about getting those jetways at EDDM. As stated first thing in this post, if you don't know what you're doing you will only introduce more and more trouble, save yourself from that by ignoring this post.
  8. EDDM for P3Dv4 - SODE jetway enhancement

    Here's an update for everybody who uses dynamic lighting: Changelog: -added support for dynamic lighting -more diversified jetway positions -removed jetway texture redrawing -added support for third cargo loader for GSX 2.2.0.0 or above -optimized GSX positions
  9. 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.
  10. 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!
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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.
