GSX and Doors

Recommended Posts

With GSX having created a new cargo loader, does anyone know the code for the side cargo door, the bulk cargo door, and the nose cargo door, so that the GSX loaders can check to see if the doors are open or not? The code for the forward cargo door looked something like "(L:7X7XforwardcargoDoor, number) 990 >=". I had tried to see if changing forward to side would do it for the side cargo door, but evidently not. Thanks.

I'll be able to tell you later today as i'm at work currently. I adjusted my GSX files already for the new version, only thing i didnt manage yet is to get the door checks work properly for the bulk cargo door. I'll also update my GSX guide for the 747 accordingly. 

If its super urgent you can open the aircrafts MDL file with a hex editor and search for 'door', this will give you the correct variable

BTW, it will look a bit strange if you use GSX loaders for nose cargo as the loading animation is always 90 degrees to the loader....which would mean you would see pallets moving sideways

Edit:try 7X7XmaincargoDoor or 7X7XbulkcargoDoor

I tried the one for the bulk cargo door last night, and that didn't seem to work, either. It's not urgent, so if you've managed to figure it out, I can wait.

just double checked, the variables you are looking for are:

 

(L:7X7XmaincargoDoor, number) 990 >=

(L:7X7XbulkcargoDoor, number) 990 >=

I suspect the reason why bulk cargo door checks dont work is the fact that the bulk cargo door opens to the inside. So you need to change the "990 >=" part in order to allow GSX to detect if the door is closed or not. I tried a few different numbers (also negatives) and also changed the equality signs, but no luck so far. For now i simply disabled door checks for bulk cargo

those are the entries in my GSX.cfg

PAX variants:

[cargomain]
pos = 2.00 -19.18 -0.82 5.80
code = 0
uldcode = BELT

CARGO variants:

[cargomain]
pos = -3.18 -15.12 0.65 0.00
code = (L:7X7XmaincargoDoor,number) 990 >=
name = SIDE Cargo
uldcode = SAA,A1N,PALLET1,PALLET2,PALLET3,PALLET4,PALLET5,PALLET6,PALLET7

@Tabs & @virtuali Anyone of you able to shed some light on the bulk cargo door checks?

the M Variant works for me with these settings:

[cargo1]
pos = 2.01 16.33 -0.99 0.00
code = (L:7X7XforwardcargoDoor, number) 990 >=
name = FWD Cargo
uldcode = AKC,AKE,ALP

[cargo2]
pos = 2.02 -15.43 -0.99 0.00
code = (L:7X7XaftcargoDoor, number) 990 >=
name = AFT Cargo
uldcode = AKC,AKE,ALP

[cargomain]
pos = -3.18 -15.12 0.65 0.00
code = (L:7X7XmaincargoDoor,number) 990 >=
name = SIDE Cargo
uldcode = SAA,A1N,PALLET1,PALLET2,PALLET3,PALLET4,PALLET5,PALLET6,PALLET7

Okay, I figured out why I had issues with the cargo loader. When I ran the update, it updated all the default ground service vehicles. It didn't touch the folders for the user created ones, so the platform height was wrong in the sim.cfg. I manually changed this. Still no confirmation as to the code for the bulk cargo door, as the last I heard from Umberto was that he was guessing that it was "7X7XbulkcargoDoor".

Lars, I think I figured it out for the bulk cargo door. Try this:

[cargomain]
pos = 2.00 -19.18 -0.82 5.80
code = (L:7X7XbulkcargoDoor, bool)
name = BULK Cargo
uldcode = BELT

See if that works for you, because it seemed to work just fine for me.
