I’ve had this happen a couple times with GSX running. Also, from time to time I lose all ground traffic (don’t see the baggage handlers but can hear them loading the plane. Don’t see the “follow me” vehicles even though GSX says they are there. Stuff like that). Haven’t figured out what is causing it, but happens from time to time.
Still really enjoying this add-on in spite of these strange side-effects from time to time. Of course my wife thinks I’m nuts sitting at the gates for 30+ minutes watching all the ground activity and PAX loading up…
Hello everyone, I need help with a problem in my gsx, at the beginning of the installation, during the first 3 or 4 flights I could choose the airlines of my stairs, now it won’t let me do that, as a result sometimes I am in LEBL (Barcelona ) with an Iberia plane and the stairs are KLM from Frankfurt airport, is there a solution to this or has something broken? Thank you for your help
Hello, i used AREX for long time, which is nice for “regional” immersion, and i now use GSX (and disabled arex for avoid errors) but it is intented that GSX don’t have generic regional véhicles ?
Off course for me i can choose wich service company use, but when i watch the other vehicles on airport, its like a mess where there is all companies of the world. For exemple there is many “chevron” fuel truck in Paris airports, and shell too, bp etc… Also there is many firetruck everywhere, red and yellow (and yellow got red lod so its kinda strange when they change colours…) all that make it feel like a big mess, mostly after used AREX.
So i wanted to know, is this intended or is this a bug ? Or can we hope regional véhicles like AREX in futures ?
Of course there are regional vehicles in GSX, it’s just that regions are very coarse ( region A is half Europe ) and GSX has so many operators that, many of them will fit in a region, because the region is very big, so you think it’s a “mess”, but that’s just because GSX has lots of operators and the regions are too big.
However, this only affect Living World vehicles, which are the ones that wanders around the airport randomly without doing anything.
When the vehicles perform a service ( for AI planes, for example ), they are instead customized BY AIRPORT, so the choice of operators is way more precise, due to about 15000 “Airport service” files, which specify the operators for a single ICAO, without being limited “by region”.
We asked a long time ago the ability to define custom regions, it has been hinted as possibly coming, but we never heard about it anymore but, obviously, since all GSX vehicles assignments are automatically compiled from a set of rules, if custom regions will eventually come, both Living World and Airport Services will have the same by-airport operators.
I Understand the point, its just that i was to much used to AREX vehicles i think, also beside liveries, AREX has good variety of vehicles with services cars, postal trucks etc… The only thing who really bother me in GSX is the big amount of firetruck everywhere, but beside this, the amount of work in GSX is impressive, with the airport gates and everything else, its a really big mod and worth it.
Juat the pushback routine makes it for me. Passenger movement with custom profiles of course needs some work to be done but with simbrief integration makes it a nice thing to increase immersion. Takes a while getting used to and is by no means perfect.
As long as you accept that it is buggy, and you are willing to pay despite of this, it is very very recommendable for airliner flying. The graphics are amazing, and you get customized jetways and ground vehicles anywhere in the world. Plus, the follow-me car for departure and arrival, and a very nice pushback sequence.
You just need to take the bugs with some humor, like when passengers start walking in the air… xD
And beware, it is not as user-friendly as the developer says, it really takes some learning curve to start enjoying it…
