Size of Marshallers (Avatars)

Recommended Posts

Hi Bryan,

Just wondering if the size of the Marshallers can be made a bit bigger, they seem to be too small now compared to the size of the 737s

Hans

This maybe an issue with the marshaller's model itself...?..passing mic over to Bryan?

As the marshaller's length is now, he looks like a midget when he issues the "stop" sign when I park the 737. I would say an upgrade from a size S to M or L would be great. 🙂

I understand, this is more a 3D modeling issue, we might need our modeler to make adjustments to the marshaller's model, we will need Bryan's help on this one

Right Manuel, convince him that indeed size matters 🙂

That's one of those subjective things... if we make it bigger, someone will complain it's too big.

We'll look it for future updates, but I believe the current human models are the proper scale to what an average person would be.

Yes, right Bryan, but now when I want to see the marshaller in my 737 NGXu many times this guy is standing behind the terminal (where the terminal is close to the parking spot) where I can;t see him when I want to park the plane. Thus rendering the marshaller as worthless. When I set the marshaller at a shorter distance in the options, I will override the poor guy.

You know if the marshaller is "inside" the building you can use the slider to adjust his position to deal with that potential issue.

Does that help?

Yes I know and no this doesn't help. When the marshaller is closer, at a closer distance to the plane, he disappears underneath the aircraft before the aircraft comes to a standstill at the designated parking spot. Enlarging the marshaller will (partly) solve this problem, perhaps the marshaller is not to scale then, but at least he can guide the aircraft into parking without getting the nose wheels over him. And a benefit of enlarging the marshaller also is, the target I am aiming at :), that the pilot can see him from within the cockpit in circumstances as previously described.

Or you put the marshaller on a stair or platform as seen on some airports ...

Usually at (passenger)gates there are light-systems that guide the aircraft into position.

Right, that indeed would be solving my problem at parking spots that are close to a terminal building.

Bryan, why not make an option for users to choose between S, M and L?  Or as Headley said, put them on a stair or platform?

If I am not mistaken, one of your betatesters is working on an airport in Germany, EDDL/DUS I think.Perhaps he can provide you with a picture of a device that is suitable to function as a marshaller's stand/stair/platform.
