Issues with gate and baggage truck

Postby DaveHagen » Sat Jun 01, 2019 8:35 am

Hello,

I recently noticed that I have a problem with the gate bridge, it will not "connect" with the door but it will with the cockpit for some reason, and the bagage truck (and the truck for loading cargo in the cargo hold, don't know what it's called) will not go to the door of the cargo hold but will drive about 50 meters behind the plane. I have this issue on the default 737-800, not really tested on other planes, but I also have a similar issue on the Airbus A350-900XWB (which I got from this site), where the jet bridge will not go to the door, but will go all the way to the wing (which is pretty far for a jet bridge).

Thanks in advantage

Here a photo for better understanding:

As you can see, the jetbridge basically thinks that the cockpit is the door and the bagage truck (and the loader) thinks that it is a Boeing 777 instead of a 737-800 (this is a default 737-800 btw) :think:

I guess that explains why the aircraft behind me stops almost 600 meters away from me when I brake (the ATC tells them that), so do I need to edit something in the aircraft.cfg or is it just a bug of FSX?

In the aircraft.cfg, try changing the [Exits] section to these values:

[exits]
number_of_exits = 3
//openclose rate percent per second, longitudinal, lateral, vertical positions from datum (feet), type (0=Main 1=Cargo 2=Emergency)
exit.0 = 0.4, 36.6, -5.0, 3.0, 0
exit.1 = 0.4, -38.5, 4.5, -3.0, 1
exit.2 = 0.4, 33.5, 3.5, -4.0, 2
