What does SODE do exactly and how to use the jetways?

Recommended Posts

Hi fellow simmers,

Whilst SODE has been available for some time now, I have not pay too much attention to it so far, having other simming priorities.

I have several SODE compatible airports and each installed the SODE software.

I've been on the SODE website https://sode.12bpilot.ch/ but did not find any user material (there's only a developer guide).

I saw that 12BPILOT, the company behind SODE, also sells a visual docking guidance systems (VDGS).

I'm a bit confused.

Two questions:

1. As I understand, SODE is roughly said an engine that allows enhanced animations for airports?

2. How do I operate the SODE jetways features for my compatible airports?

And when I do CTRL+J to order a jetway deployment, it is the P3D functionality that operates and not SODE? Correct?

The SODE user manual is in the downloads section of the 12bpilot website.

The native, buggy P3D/FSX jetways ("IK" jetways) are controlled by default with the CTRL-J command.

The best way to control SODE jetways (and to create/place custom SODE jetways that replace the IK default ones) is using FSDreamTeam's GSX+GSX level 2 add-ons.  Otherwise, there's a drop-down menu in the P3D Add-ons menu that triggers SODE jetway operation.

Many thanks Bob.

I got the user manual in the download section.

For some reasons, I don't like GSX. I'll try the P3D Add-ons menu that triggers SODE jetway operation.

What do you mean by "IK "? What does it stand for? I don't understand.

"IK"= Inverse Kinematics

It's the name of the default jetway animation system used in FSX and P3D.
