SAM – Scenery Animation Manager by Stairport

By Freddy De Pues, NAPS

A. SAM Installation in XP11

1) Install the library in Custom Scenery
2) Install the plugin in Resources --> plugins

B. Objects Installation in WED

1) Place your ramp start in the exact position where it is needed. (It will help later on when you will position the safegates in XP11)

2) Install the jetway(s), the safegate(s) and the marshaller(s).
(Since there are no specific instructions, I selected 4 m high midsize jetways)

3) Name your gates, A1, A2, ... B1, B2,...

Notes:

The jetways should be attached to the terminal.
At this point, exact placement is not available, the position will be adjusted later on while in XP11.
Make sure the marshaller is far away enough from the plane or you won’t be able to see him or her.

4) Export the scenery, save.

C. Creating the .xml file using the authoring tool.

In other words, implementing SAM to your airport.
The .xml file containing all your input will be processed automatically, follow these steps:

1) Go to XP11, select the airport you are developing, go to the first gate.
The aircraft is in a perfect position on the ramp. The jetway is in its initial position, exactly where you placed it in WED, in the same shape as in the SAM library.

9) Add a visual docking guidance (plugin’s main menu) using the same method. 

10) If the aircraft is correctly positioned, click Copy current aircraft position --> Save.
