Taxi2Gate FSX scenery's in P3D v4.4

Recommended Posts

So I know some people have had success using Taxi2Gate FSX KMCO in P3D v4.4, I installed it today, and it works fine as far as I can tell.

I was wondering if any other Taxi2Gate FSX scenery's are known to be working in v4.4...?? More specifically, i'm interested in KSTL St. Louis, does anyone know if this one is working in P3D v4.4..??

Any info appreciated, thanks.

I use it in v4.4 no issues. I do not use any orbx products though. I use megascenery or ground environment x. Also, not sure if it's an issue for you, but it only contains static jetways

Thanks for the info Dave, the lack of functioning jetways in payware scenery is kind of a deal breaker for me. I appreciate you bringing it to my attention

I have got T2G's OTHH ( originally bought for FSX) and I have just had the jetway operated via GSX SODE no problem

Dave did you get the taxiway lights to work at night?

I forgot about that. Now that you mention I don't think the taxi lights work for me but the runway lights do

Funny you should start this topic as I just today installed a bunch of older Taxi2Gate sceneries:

- MMMX: works surprisingly well, but I found objects aorund Mexico City to be black. Luckily found a thread somewhere with instructions on how to get that working, and then the guys over at simmershome have a patch to make the lights work at night

- MUHA and MUCU: No objects at all. I wil ltry to convert these manually using ModelConverter X, so stay tuned on that... I know other people have tried and succeeded, so no reason I can't do it myself too.

- OTHH: Works well for me, but this was already made compatible with earlier versions of P3D by T2G themselves.

- MHTG: Works well for me. 

- VHHH: Works well for me, though it's in need of a significant update...

Might need to ask for your help on this one, Benjamin. Have it. Last time I tried installing it in P3Dv4.3, it showed up white tracts of texture on certain parts of the runway and same blackness as you state. Is that thread here,in Avsim?

No problem Rick, it's in another Avsim thread:

Now I know why I requested your kind help, Benjamin. Links to this and to that are well and good but it means having to sift through every post to get to the bottom of the solution, aka, sifting a whole bag of flour to get to that token at the bottom.

Nevertheless, I soldiered on and downloaded tooting's 2 files, Effect+Texture .Placed the contents old Effects into P3D root folder; likewise with Texture. Was that correct.

Now, I am not sure how to tackle the runway lights.

EDIT After re-start to P3D. Don't what is going on here with this T2G MMMX nightmare. I still have layer of like dense while mist all over the airport viewed from the gate. Not sure if it's that black texture issue or what. I'm out of my depth here.

If you can help, Benjamin, I'd be grateful.

Could you post a picture of the white mist you describe? I don't see anything like it... Keep in mind that MMMX is at ~7000ft, so you might just be seeing clouds. Try setting the weather to 'clear skies' and see if the mist is still there?

As for the runway light,s you'll need to go over to simmershome.de and download the T2G patches that are over there: https://simmershome.de/native-p3dv2-light-patches/

Applying that gives me all the lights. MMMX looks and works very well for me after installing both the patch by tooting and the one form simmershome.

Are you guys not having an issue where the taxiway blue edge lights don't work properly? (They're there but cast awful-looking enormous square blotches of blue light.)

Otherwise MMMX works fine, especially during the day. But at night the blue taxiway lighting really kills the immersion factor.

Hello Benjamin. I wish I could. I no longer have an image hosting website I used to use say 3 years ago. If I can describe what I see as best as I can.

If panning from say the Gate looking towards say the runway or the landscape beyond, no matter which way I pan, there is a clear kind of black texture that sits under that misty white texture. Surely, logic states, if there is natural mist, that black texture would not all of a sudden lift that mist. Best I can describe without an image hoster, unless I can email you via a PM, then I can attach images.

Thanks for that simmershome link. Will give it a try. And thanks again for your kind assistance.

Just tried that simmershome link. Everything is in German despite selecting English top right.

Okay, managed to find the MMMX Light Patch Pack T2G but there is no download link other that Support Forum, which, surprise, surprise, is all in German. It may as well be in Greek for all that good it does! Cannot even find a login place in English. That's one of the reasons, despite being a member there, I do not visit it

What's your web browser Rick..??

If you use Google chrome it should be easy to translate, at least it worked for me...

Hey Rick, feel free to send me a PM with a screenshot and I can take a look, but what you describe doesn't sound like anything I have encountered... Are you sure the layering of the various scenery entries is correct? I believe it should be the airport at the top, then city and then terrain.

As for Simmershome, I agree it's a little annoying that everything is in German, but then it's a German guy 🙂 Like SunDevil said, if you use Chrome it should automatically translate for you. Getting to the actual download is a little tricky... The support forum is where the link is, but I believe you need to be some sort of member (other than a 'forum member') to actually download it...

Hi Benjamin. Once more, I am indebted to you. I will definitely PM you later as I have to go out right now.

Catch you later. Thanks
