Gatwick Xtreme and MTX

HI there,

I am running V3 of Gatwick Xtreme, Rex and MTX latest version (donwloaded Feb 2011).

No matter what time of day or night, I have absolutely no Easyjet aircraft.

AI traffic taxi into buildings and across the grass instead of using taxiways.

I am sure that this is something that I have missed but the more I look, the less I'm gonna see. Could someone please point me in the right direction.

I have tried FSX with and without DX10 and have no static aircraft at Gatwick.

Regarding the incorrectly positioned and routed aircraft, please ensure that in your scenery library, Gatwick Xtreme is a higher priority than - i.e. a lower numbered layer than - MyTrafficX.

If that still doesn't work (it should!) then you can go into FSX\MyTrafficX\scenery, find the file with "EGKK" in the name and disable it by changing the extension (.bgl) to something else such as ".dis", ".lgb" or ".prettymuchanythingyoulikewithinreason". Obviously, the latter is a bit long so a shorter extension is preferred. ;)

The lack of EZYs I can't comment on. I will take a look at what I have at Gatwick, later, though.

Cheers,

Ian P.

Moving the file higher than MTX did work, thank you. Have since noticed that there are no Virgin or Monarch flights either.

Thanks , Ian.

I counted 15 Virgin, 76 Monarch and about 200 easyjet departures daily from Gatwick in the departures. EGKK in MyTraffic is configured to have 64 gates, and on a quick visit I saw a lot of orange, some Monarch and one Virgin.

I assume that the addon airport is not able to support so many aircratf. With Virgin and Monarch I could understand it hust does not have enough parkings for large aircraft, but Easy is A319s and B733s, these should park there.

A lack of parking spaces isn't usually a problem with Gary's sceneries - I have Birmingham and Belfast, both of which match the AIP charts for quantites and, where possible, numbering. I don't have Gatwick to check, unfortunately.

Radii are important for FSX - is there somebody around who has that airport, could do a "Dump airport" and give us the list of parkings from airports.txt?

I've only got the demo version installed but it is the same product as far as the AFCAD is concerned (This AFCAD has airliner specific parking in it I believe)so here is the info you requested. By my calculations it has about 137 parking spots.

Thanks Andy. That should be enough and the right numbers, too.

So @flyingspark, with 100% traffic density setting how many aircraft do you see at noon in Gatwick on ground?

Sorry formthe delay, busy at work!!

On Sat at noon I see 64 aircraft comprising many B.A and Thomson, 2 Continental, 3 Astraeus and many 1st Choice.

There are no aircraft at the satellite or on the main pier.

Regards,

Clive.

I'm using default Gatwick, but counted five EZYs on the ground at 1200Z on whichever day selecting "summer" gave me, using 34% airline traffic.

I'll whack settings up to 100% and go back around.

Perhaps i should try a re-install. I have tried Luton and Liverpool, (both Easy hubs) and nothing. Virgin have not appeared anywhere either. I updated the afcad for gatwick and now have more aircraft, but still no Easy or Virgin. Its not the end of the world or anything, but it would be nice if it was realistic.

I do appreciate your help.

Regards,

Clive

A reinstall I cannot imagine to help. Maybe you just check if you see Virgin at Heathrow and Easy at Stanstead to make sure there are not just problems with dedicated aircraft.
