[P3Dv4] Gatwick issues/improvments

Recommended Posts

Hello Jennasoft,

I have noticed at some taxiways, for example J at the southside of the south terminal with stands 28, 24, 22, 20 ect. There is issues that it thinks you're on grass and not concrete. So therefore you require a lot of power to move and the aircraft bounces more then.

So I was wondering if you guys can go over your scenery and make sure it is actually concrete where it is suppose to be.

It would also be nice if you guys could take a look at the trees on your scenery! Their green colour is really vibrant and druing all other sceasons than summer it looks kinda wired.

Along with the Runway texture, it seems to be to be a little bit to dark from what it is in real life.

 

Otherwise an amazing scenery, and I am really looking forward to the 1.1 update for P3Dv4.

The new 3D grass on the previews also seems to be a little bit to bright like the trees. So maybe these should be a little bit darker.

Thank you for the attention!

Hopefully you can look into these "issues" i've brought up before the 1.1 release.

 

Best regards,

Sveiny

On google maps, there is car parks and a lot of other things here that would be nice to have.

For the sesonal textureing, will there be a config? If so, can you make it possible to then remove the A380?

 

Thanks for the reply!

 

Best regards,

Sveiny

Hi Sveiny,

those car parks were claimed by several customers. 

Cars and probably a parking texture will be added but probably not the buildings : we have no info about them and this whole area should disappear in the coming years with Gatwick expansion...

Since 3D cars are heavy on framerate, there will be an option, like the A380, in the configurator. 

Olivier.

Hello @jennasoft

 

Right you guys might se me as really picky here, but anyways, here we go.

So I downloaded and installed the update, btw great stuff!

However there is some key parts for me still missing and that is around J/08R.

The diffrent holding posistions is missing.....

Here is a picture from a chart that shows the different holding posistion:

Thank you! Keep up the great work!

John, you become to be picky...😋

My oh my!  actually, I just forgot to copy the new taxisigns placement file from FSX to P3D!!!

You're totally right, Sveiny...

Releasing simultaneously both P3D and FSX versions is not something I would do again...

It's always confusing when fixing something and checking...you have to switch from a version to another all the time...

 

Please put this file in your JennaSoft Gatwick scenery folder and all added holding point should show(including J's points😊).

Will be added to version 1.2 with fixed trees file.
