VHHH Taxi2Gate compatible with P3dv4.1?

Recommended Posts

Anyone knows if VHHH from T2G is working with P3Dv4.1?  Can't find any updates for P3Dv4...

I’ve heard there is a terrain issue but other than that, seems to work fine.

This is due to there simply not being any due to T2G not prioritizing it in their update schedule. I’m sure an update will come eventually.

I'm sure they will, in this market segment time is your best friend.

Although one airport was indeed very fast updated, for obvious reasons (KSEA) :happy:

VHHH works pretty good but my tires sink in slightly. Seems to be an elevation issue.

This is common attribute by many different developers, and is the result of having to "lift" the texture sheet for the surface markings (such as taxi lines) a few mm above the airport elevation.  This is to prevent texture flashing or disappearing.  Developers who are moving to using P3Dv4 materials can take advantage of improved z-bias control to reduce or eliminate the "lift" distance, but these sceneries would not be backwards compatible so don't look for them to be rushing to use the P3Dv4 SDK.

I have a vague memory of renaming a file (adding .off) which removed a sinking tyres problem at VHHH in P3D v3. Might have been VHHH_EXCLUDE-BACK.bgl in the VHHH-TERRAIN folder. Can't remember for certain.

Haven't got any elevation issues with it in P3D v4 though.

Terrain issue? Bleeding thru with other scenery layers?

To be fair, I said I heard, not that I know. I don’t own it myself so I can’t speak from experience but others have said it works fine except for some terrain issues. Again, just going off of what others have said.

I'm using FlyTampa and it works just fine.  Not going to buy any T2G sceneries until they get VHHH and MMMX fixed. I don't mind paying a small fee for an upgrade like I did with PANC and EDDF.

Well, there is only one way to figure out...

Thanks.

What version did you install for P3Dv4? P3D or P3Dv2

What version did you install of TAXIGate P3D or P3Dv2?  What about FlyTampa. Does anyone know if it works in P3Dv4?

Kai Tak works in 4.2.  Check their website.

Currently P3Dv4.1 is installed.  It works, no problems ...

As for KaiTak there is an issue with tower buildings on the apron, don't know if this is fixed already?

I've not had any problems in 4.1 or 4.2.  Make sure you are using the update on the FlyTampa website.  

More than one set of sceneries sounds like a problem of duplicate sceneries fighting for the same space.

It's worked fine from day one in v4 here as well.

Hi.

Mind me to ask into what folder do you install VHHH? I am having issue with installation. I installed it into the folder the installer picked but it did not workout. The installer offers several options to select like v2 and P3D. What option do I have to chose? During installation the installer picked C:/ProgramFIles/LM but I do not have P3D4 in that location. What folder do I have to show? Where P3D is installed or addon folder? It is a bit confusing bc sole sciences install outside of P3D like Imaginsim.

Thanks

The installer is just looking for your P3d Root folder, it's up to you though where you want to put it.
