A Decent CYYZ Recommendation

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a decent CYYZ airport add-on? For some obscure reason, all I seem to be seeing in my FSX-SE default CYYZ is detached jetways and not affixed to a terminal building.

fsx_cyyz_rs.zip  In the Flightsim File Library.  Is your scenery complexity slider at max?

 

I just check my CYYZ default, and all jetways are attached to terminal buildings.

You always come up trumps, with your positive answers and tips. Thanks. Just checking now. Complexity was set to 'dense'. Sliding it over now. Has made no difference as per screenshotCYYZ.jpg

Yeah, I contemplated that as I have a few of their stuff, which I agree is pretty good, but with the £ taking a hammering last few days v the $ and €, I think I'll have to wait for the rates to improve.

It looks like you have MyTraffic in there.. Be sure to remove their airport file for CYYZ to remove conflicts with Ray Smiths version.

Pre-empting that somebody would suggest that, I in fact did remove the MyTraffic bgl. Ray Smith's version? What/which is that? I thought I just had the default FSX-SE CYYZ. I don't ever recall installing Ray Smith's

The Ray Smith version is the one I suggested in the Flightsim library.

Aah, I failed to notice that, charliearon.

 

Heading there right now. Thanks.

 

EDIT:Just downloading.


Installed that Ray Smith version, still no difference as can be seen belowStillNoTerminalBuildingsCYYZ.jpg


And doing a Top Down View shows some Terminal Buildings not at all the jetways. Weird.

Maybe autogen needs to be maxed??  Here are my CYYZ Toronto-Pearson default airport shots.

Here is a top down view of CYYZ.

If you're using MyTraffic6 or perhaps another traffic add-on, they often include a huge library of AFCAD/ADE files.  This looks like a misplaced exclusion in an AFCAD, or possibly a problem with multiple AFCADs active on CYYZ.

 

If it's MyTraffic, there's a scenery folder in the MyTraffic installation directory.  Disable the CYYZ file(s) (i.e. CYYZ_BR2.bgl) by adding .off to the end of the file name and that should get your default airport back.

 

You can get scruffyduck's airport scanner (Google it) and use it to look for multiple AFCADs as well.

Thanks, Bob. If you look at the 5 posts down beginning of this thread, that was the first place I went into and re-named the MyTraffic bgls for CYYZ to *.bak. I was hoping that would make the difference, but it clearly hasn't. No big deal. I'll just wait for the exchange rate to hike up before making the FlyTampa choice.

 

The only reason I wanted the CYYZ to function properly was coz in 2014 I made a Dash8 Q400 Air Canada flight from Newark to CYYZ. I just wanted to replicate that flight with the Majestic Dash8 Q400.

 I think even with FT CYYZ you may have issues.. There is obviously some file(s) that's causing that issue in your sim somewhere. Do you have GSX by any chance?

Any other airports in that general vicinity of CYYZ that do the same thing or is it just CYYZ?

Not really looked beyond CYYZ.

 

Yes, I do have GSX and am aware that it references the MT bgls, but I have taken out any references to CYYZ in MT.

Uninstalled GSX, etc, and still no difference. No idea what major airports are around CYYZ, so I have no idea which airports to look at to check if this issue applies there too.

Thanks for that. No, I don't use FTX Global. But I most certainly will head the way of the other two listed Canadian airports and see if the same is happening there..

 

Thanks for the link too.

 

EDIT: Just checked the other two airports around CYYZ, and they seem okay even if they have no jetways. but at least the Building Terminals are all there.

 

I'm even more flummoxed now!

Reinstall GSX, go to the airport, open the GSX customization page and it will tell you exactly which AFCAD is being used along with the path so you can manually find it and rename it from .bgl to .off, after you exit FSX of course.

 

Then once you do that run FSX, go to the same airport and see if the buildings are now correct.

 

If you already nuked the MTX Afcad GSX or FSX can't still access it, that's why you need to go to the GSX customization screen to see what other or hidden AFCAD is in play.

What you want to do is disable the AFCADs at those nearby airports and see if they are affecting CYYZ...it's not unheard of for an AFCAD for a nearby airport to have an exclude that messes up the other airport.  To restate...you want to rule out that an AFCAD at a nearby field is affecting CYYZ, not check that the nearby field looks OK..

 

On the scruffyduck site there's a free utility called Simple Airport Scanner that you can use to check for duplicate AFCAD/ADE airport files.  Note that the aforementioned possibility of an errant exclude at a nearby airport may not be recognized as a duplicate by any tool, however.

 

Good luck

I thought your tip was going to nail. Did as you suggested. Now, I am not sure if I am worse off or better.

 

Take a look at the screenie.

Thanks for that suggestion, Bob. It's 02:0am now, I reckon this can wait for another day, another dawn. Will give your suggestion a go tomorrow.

 Exactly my point in asking if he had GSX. It just took me a while to get back and check.

What AFCAD does the GSX customization page say is being used? That was my point of reinstalling GSX was to use it to see what AFCAD is in use so that you can disable it.

GSX is referencing this APX26160.BGL in Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\Scenery\0302\scenery folder, which I renamed to AP26160.Bak, and then re-started Steam, which as I reported made no difference.

 

  • GSX is also referencing a MyTrafficProfessional\MyTraffic\scenery\BRE2_CYKZ.BGL for CYKZ
  • But most surprisingly, for CYTZ, there is no entry in the drop-down list of airports ID in FSX-Steam, which was there yesterday before re-installing GSX.

I run - CYYZ2007 Toronto Pearson International Airport for FS2004 Freeware - in FSX with no known problems. It's available in FS 2004 downloads, worth a try , install exe,  to ROOT FSX folder, it will find the Addon Scenery folder and then install to the Scenery Library in the usual way. The root folder will have a Flight Ontario folder which only contains two cfg files which can be ignored. Full pdf comes with the download.  Hopefully it may also work for you.
