Flightbeam KIAD update available

Recommended Posts

Thanks! Got it. Would never have known since it doesn't show up on FlightBeam Manager. One of my favourite airport.

Make sure you are using the latest flightbeam managers, as it showed on mine several days ago.

This turned into an afternoon delight.  My FB Manager was not indicating an available update so following the instructions from the FB Forum I downloaded the latest FB Manager and installed it, which resulted in five of my nine products being  locked.  A closer look revealed that those were all purchased via esellerate prior to the 2017 conversion to direct sales.  This conversion was done successfully when I first installed a new FB Manager but now broken by the Manger update.  Another look revealed the problem to be I changed email addresses after dropping AT&T U-Verse in 2018; fortunately, the FB website had a button to push to merger old and new email addresses from which point I was able to download the five new installers.  Each installation required a download, removal via Manger of prior install, install new and configure and finally go back in with ADE and correct the three of the five that had wrong ILS configurations.

I had so much fun... I just love this hobby!

Any discount to previous owners? I've have all my Flightbeam airports for so long I haven't ever installed the new manager.

I got so tired of this that I stopped updating. I'm still on P3Dv4.2 with addons of the same vintage but I get to spend all my sim time flying instead of maintaining/tweaking now. I threw in the towel and decided if it works fine, don't mess with it. When I upgrade my computer I will get current.....for a little while. I don't know what version of FB KIAD I have but it looks great. :biggrin:

You should update the installer so that your can simply update via the FlightBeam interface on your desktop instead of having to go into your account at FlightBeam to manually update.

Is anyone else having an issue with GSX not detecting the SODE jetways in V3? It doesn't think there are any jetways, so it keeps trying to make its own or use stairs.

I only noticed that jetways cannot attach to the plane on a few parking spots due to aircraft being too close to the terminal. Slewing a plane back a bit solves the problem without tampering with afcad.

Not exactly, but what I think I have noticed is that if I modify a single parking position GSX adds it's own jetway over top of, or next to the original SODE jetway. I've seen it twice now. Once modifying gate D15 at LVFR KMIA and another time at a gate at FB KIAD. I can't remember which airport, but all I did was edit the parking location and disable the staircases and when I exited there was an extra (GSX) jetway. At the other airport, I edited the position and selected underground fuel. Same result, extra jetway. I had to edit the GSX .ini files and delete the jetway lines for those gates. I was going to report it to Umberto, but I wanted top play with it a little more so that I could give him steps to duplicate it. 

Did you by any chance edit all (or multiple) parking positions and change non-jetway related items? I haven't tried that, but it would make sense that what I am seeing applies to group edits as well.
