Jetbridge 2

Recommended Posts

I was watching a youtube clip from a guy who was explaining the queen of the skies 2 in beta

 

I noticed that he had a jet bridge attached to the aircraft when parked at the gate.

 

Is this possible in queen of the skies 2, or is it dependent on the graphics of specific airports.

 

Also when he was explaining the aircraft he could smoothly move anywhere in the aircraft.

 

He could move in and out, pan up down, left right, but he could also move side ways.

 

Where as I can only move in out, up down, left and right from one position. ie captains seat

 

Is this possible to do? and how?  Also after completing a flight plan with PFPX

 

It creates a .WX file, and this is exported to the FSX/PMDG/WX folder.

 

When loading the flight plan into the FMC what is the best way to load the .WX file into the FMC

Paul,

 

Your answer below was by another poster in the first topic yo posted called Jet Bridge. I accidentally merged the answer into your post, but the answer was as follows by member Tom.

 

 

"There are 3 methods used by designers to implement animated jetways. First is of course the default FSX method (CTRL-J) These are used by default airports, FSDT (except KMEM), FlyTampa, Taxi2gate and a few others. Then there is Aerosoft AES airports. (Have to buy credits for each supported airport) and the new method is SODE (Sim object Display Engine) which some designers are starting to implement. One is FSDT KMEM.

 

As for panning/moving views he's probably using a camera utility like EZDOK or the new Chase Plane utility. Another possibility is TrackIR (Hardware head tracking device)"

 

Going forward, if you have another question to ask, don't start a new topic with the same part of the first question asked, but rather ask another question in the same topic or start a new thread with just the new question. This way people don't reply to the same first part of your question twice.

To answer the weather part, he's probably using Active Sky 2016.  Great product.  I'm pretty sure you can also download the weather from SimBrief.com (great tool) and put it in the wx folder for PMDG.  SimBrief is free (though, if you want to have updated navdata, you need a Navigraph subscription).
