Parking Positions misaligned

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

Long time user, previously I have had no problems with this, however it can only be something I am doing wrong! NO matter where I search, or how many times i search with the Parking Position addon, I am unable to get the correct parking positions at many airports. 

The xml files definitely update, I can see by the date and time stamp, the traffic program runs no problem, finds all my xml files positions traffic at every airort, but still they are parked in the incorrect positions, ie through terminals, pointing the wrong direction and so on.

I amusing P3D V4.5, P3d is installed on a networked pc compared to the main traffic program, that being said all networked folders are correct and working.

 

Any clues please?

Thanks

  • Check that your Airports parameter points to the folder that is being updated by PPG. 
  • Check that you are not still running with old files in parked_updates... delete all files in \parked_updates  (after you have made a copy of the folder).

Hi

 

Thanks for that, I have done as you said and even reinstalled everything, it's still not helped. Have you any further suggestions?

Appreciate your support and time.

Please run a session with Logging of park/position and xml checked, the post the Log file again.

Question: what ESSA airport do you think you are using? Stock or an add-on (if so what addon)?

Ok, will do, the ESSA is the ORBX version - I hope!!

 

Currently flying, will revert once on the ground with a log.

Well you are not using the airport file for the ORBX version. That's why you have got misalignments.

No need to post the Log again. 

Generate an airport file for the ORBX version of ESSA and put it in \parked_updates

In that case, it must be where I am pointing ParkPos, as its not only ESSA that is incorrect, as I say, I never used to have this issue, I am not so sure what I have done to cause it.

Out of interest, how long should I leave the aircraft parked whilst creating these files for best results?

 

Thanks again for the support.

It is not that difficult: in PPG you make a first entry pointing to \Prepar3D v4 and a second entry below that pointing to \Prepar3D v4\ORBX.

Delete all files from your parked_updates folder and the new ORBX files will be picked up when needed.

There is no fixed time, just start with the file and it will become better and better over time.
