Download and Support for the SAM Plugin by Stairport Sceneries
  1. What's new in this club
  2. I have attempted to follow the instructions to add tanks to the FlyJSim 727-200Adv and ended up with this xml file. However, SAM tells me this plane does not have a valid ground service configuration. Do I need to add more services. I just have the doors and tanks. The documentation at https://stairportscenerieshelp.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/77000515065--groundservice-aircraft-configuration-guide is pretty sparse. I'm attaching the xml file which is in SAM/aircraft. 727-200Adv.zip
  3. " That's a bit weird indeed. It will be saved in SAM/aircraft.xml. From there you need to copy the entries into a seperate xml file and place it in the aircraft subdirectory. Which aircrafts do you want to set up? Maybe we can cover them too. - Marten of Stairport" This is great to know. My aircrafts folder has a file for the FJS 727-200ADV so when I added the fuel tank information it never showed up in this file. After reading this I found the aircraft.xml file. I was using the Aircraft config guide on the website and it never mentioned this. Is there a reason an existing file is not just updated?
  4. Late reply but I've just started working with SAM again. The Jetways and ground services are good. I like them and use them for the immersion. They are the equivalent of GSX Pro which I have (I fly MSFS2020 as well as X-Plane). Some notes though. If the plane isn't one of those supported by SAM or there isn't a profile you have to use the authoring tool but be warned the documentation is very sparse. I'm trying to add a plane and all I can find is how to set the fuel tank config but that isn't working. I haven't found docs on any other ground service. Also, the question has been asked if SAM is still developed and I have no idea. Stairport has a website but support tickets go unanswered and there is nothing on XOrg. I finally found this site which seems to be the official support unless you bought from Aerosoft and if that is the case you can go there. If the plane is supported out of the box it works very well but if not your are on your own.
  5. It does not seem compatible with ToLiss - the passenger, cargo loading is all wrong!
  6. Are you going to update the SAM_Seasons_SDK so that it points to XP12 default 3D forests?
  7. Yesterday I did a flight on the inibuilds Beluga from EDHI to LFBO. At my origin airport the Controls menu that controls the Beluga Line Station doors worked fine, however on my arrival airport, even though I have a LFBO scenery that has fully working Beluga Line Station doors, the Controls menu fails to appear and therefore I cannot control the Beluga Line Station doors. This is an issue that did not occur in SAM 2. However, when I started a new sim session at LFBO with the same aircraft, the Controls menu does appear and the doors can be controlled again. How come SAM 3 fails to show the Controls menu on arrival to the aforementioned airport, but works fine when I start a new sim session? Any other inibuilds Beluga users experience this kind of problem? Image description: Image 1: on my inbound flight to LFBO, the Controls logo fails to appear. It should've been a little logo on the top right corner that resembles a control tower. Image 2: on a new sim session starting at LFBO, the Controls logo does appear, the logo that looks like a control tower. Image 3: how the inside of the Controls menu looks like. The controls to operate the Beluga Line Station doors are visible. Log file from the flight with the SAM 3 controls bug is also included SAM log files from the flight in question, as well as my new flight are included (note file timestamps) Log (586).txt 2022.12.25-21.19.42-log.txt 2022.12.26-16.56.50-log.txt
  8. Running Rotate MD-11 in XP12, when I open SAM it says "The selected aircraft doesn't have a valid ground service configuration"
  9. I tried to install SAM3 but the files are damaged or smth. (I am on Mac). I know you have to run the remove attributes code, but when I run it in the terminal, it 1. doesn't do anything 2. can't find the files. how do I run this code. this is so confusing and I've been trying to get support from everywhere. its never been so hard to install plugin.
  10. Howdy All, I Have noticed that SAM is still not working properly with the CRJ9 by ADSim. The Developer says that it is a Problem with SAM. Do we know a fix or the status of getting it fixed?
  11. I'm using SAM Follow Me 3.1.10 in xplane 12 latest version with the latest version of the Toliss A321 and Taimodels LFPG Charles de Gaulle v5.0. If I have the SAM plugin enabled then I get an xplane crash when loading a Toliss situation at that airport. If I disable either the SAM plugin or the airport, it works. This is repeatable. Thanks.
  12. Using SAM 3.19 and XP12 I have problems loading payware sceneries like EDDB and EDDN where the ground texture is using SAM seasons. Loading a position at these airports I get the failure message "The following scenery package has a problem and will therefore not be loaded" in the log.txt and the scenery is not loaded. At rainy weather the file Ground_Wet_Effect_01.pol is missing, but the scenery and the file is present -scenery refused to load. Unchecking all seasons or using Ortho4xp colours did not help. Another bug I noticed since XP11.55 and SAM3 is the missing docking/ position animation at EDDF, the jetways are working. What can I do ?
  13. I've edited the SAM Ground for the CRJ-900 and It still won't show up as available ground services.
  14. Where has only been our Marten, not a sign of life or an answer for 4 weeks?
  15. Hi, I don't have a profile for the ssg 747-8v2 in xplane12 at sam ground services can someone please help me out? it is displayed that there is no valid configuration for the 747
  16. Hello, Could I ask how to disable the bus with livery config as an interim step. Very odd using a bus in my area of the world, and I have stopped using this product because of this. But if I could disable the bus... Tx
  17. When I start up Sam in x-plane and go to preflight I can’t find the loading menu for loading the plane can anyone help me.
  18. @martin@stairport Hi Martin. I have been trying to get SAM to work with XP12 (M1 Mac) but while the plugin opens and I was able to activate gates and follow me, neither of these functions actually works. Also I cannot seem to enter a departure or arrival runway into the planning screen. I read here that SAM is supposed to be working in XP12 but my experience says no. Can you tell me what I need to do to get SAM to work properly in XPlane 12? Let me know if you need any further info on my setup. Note... I am running XPlane with minimal plugins and only the default scenery. I get application crashes if I try to run shareware airports. Thanks for your advice.
  19. The weather message has been eleminated in SAM 3.1.10 however the weather API is still not available.
  20. @slicker55 Mm my first post... You ask questions, and then you found the answers.... Very interesting. Anyway, to my point... LR knows very well that X-Plane can't function without these plugins.... So, what's the point holding back on APIs'. Just my two cents... Cheers.
  21. I am uncertain about the integration of SAM3 and Toliss ISCS panel. One of the reasons for raising this question is that my ACARS report shows numerous adjustments to fuel quantity which I would like to explore. After importing my Simbrief flight plan, the block fuel and number of passengers shown in SAM3 mirrors the values in the flight plan (but, for some reason, the cargo weight has to be manually adjusted). I don't know if the values shown in SAM3 are only used to determine loading times (i.e. visual only) or if they physically impact on the performance of the aircraft? My next question refers to 'block fuel' where my practise is to round up to the nearest 100 kg and add an additional 100 kg (learned from RL pilots on Youtube). Should the revised amount be manually entered into SAM3, ISCS or both? My system: X-Plane 12, Windows 10, Toliss A319, A321, A346, SAM3 Base Plugin 3.1.10, SAM GroundService 1.0.4
  22. Hello, I have updated SAM for XP11 and XP12 yesterday. Everything seems to work under XP11, but not under XP12. There are no vehicles approaching the aircraft. The only thing that docks are the stairs and the luggage loading vehicle. Also the time in the SAM window does not run down (except Cargo). Can you help me?
  23. @Marten@Stairport ... thanks, your advice is appreciated I seem to recall with previous versions of SAM, the end-user was required to install the SAM plugin into resources/plugins and a SAM library into custom scenery. Do we still need to install a SAM library and if so, where can we get the latest version as it is not included in the download?
  24. They have a very very outdated version. I don't think they maintain ther versioning in their central app anymore. So no, just use the latest SAM version.
