Parking Positions

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Some parking positions when I am in the PMDG 747-400 appear to be too far forward when I am warped into position, the left inboard engine is interfering with the Jetway and the nose wheel is actually away from the line marker '3'... I can do a short push (shift P) to get into the right position.. is this intentional?

I am at E5 now.. I'm too far forward. E7 is the same, E8 seems ok nose wheel on position 8, same with E9.. I haven't gone further with checking them all.. it's not a biggie.. I can just push back a bit.. but I think a couple of positions might have slipped through the cracks, easy done.. I've tried to do something similar with my airports, it takes forever and is hard to get right all the time!

Glad you're back doing videos...

EDIT: Just reading your sticky are these just examples of where the tweaks have limitations? 🙂  

EDIT 2: Yep.. just looked at the sheet.. E5 is optimised for the 787-8 not the 747-400, as is E7 for the 777-200... where as E8 is for the 747-400.. I think this explains it!  Please disregard..

 

Thanks

Craig
