FlightFactor A350 Door Location

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I recently updated to v1.0.8, and I realized that the jetways don't line up with the doors on the FlightFactor A350. The jetways are within limits, and I am not using force connect.1.PNG.ba8857d6a1995f803428c14321c1f777.PNG

I can confirm that the config for LF2 was not 100% perfect which I corrected with the file attached. However the position shift on your screenshot looks more like an old scenery with a wrong jetway template. Did you tried other aircrafts on that jetway or other sceneries?

I have tried other aircraft with the same jetway (FlightFactor A320 has the jetway a bit higher than the door, but it's more or less at the correct location,) and I am using the Type 2 glass (3.5m and 4.0m) templates from v1.0.8

I've replaced the XML file, but the jetways are still in the same position. I've also reloaded the templates, but with no luck.

 

Edit: I've also tried connecting to another gate at the same airport, and with a gate at a different airport. However, the position is still incorrect

I've updated the A350, but the jetway location for both jetways haven't changed at all...

@Marten@Stairport I have updated both SAM (1.1.0) and the A350, and I am getting the same results. I am using the Glass Type 2 (3.5 and 4.0) templates, which should be the correct templates.

Oh no, me again. It's getting quite difficuilt to manage that many aircrafts. It should be corrected now, please redownload!

@Marten@Stairport I've redownloaded the plugin and reset the templates, and the jetways are a bit closer to the door. However, they're still pretty offset 🙂

I tested a clean SAM installation in a clean xplane installation and a glas type 2 3.5 and 4.0m config with the included template. FF A350 version 1.4.8. That's my result. Is it possible that you accidently changed the template?

Hmm I always delete the SAM folder in plugins and Custom Scenery when I update. Could it be a different A350 version? I'm using v1.5.2

I've tweaked the file to be a bit more precise, since the Type 1 Glass jetway (not my preferred but is the only glass to have a 6.0m variant) is smaller than the Type 2. @Marten@Stairport, does this file work for you?

Well the connection point is pretty much offset...

Hmm it seems to work visually with the jetways... I'm interested in how the alignment is actually done 🙂

Not sure what you mean. The Jetways are supposed to stop centered at the given coordinate of the aircraft.xml. No magic in here 😉

Ahh ok, I see what you mean 🙂 I offset the jetways so that the doors would not clip through the Type 2, as the opening and the door itself usually fit within the jetway "hood" in real life

It should be connected clear of the opened door anyway. If you provide me your exact test case I will try to reproduce your misalignment. 

@Marten@Stairport with your xml file, I have the opened door clipping through the hood of the jetway. This happens with the Type 1 Glass jetway, which has a smaller opening than the Type 2 (but is the only glass type that can reach 6.0m.) It happens before (spawn) and after (using the guidance system or a marshaller) a flight

@Marten@Stairport Since the Type 2 Glass Jetway (shown here) has a larger opening than the Type 1, the clipping isn't as severe for both doors ( it only clips vertically, which can also be seen in the photo)
