Customise Jetways?

#1
Hello all,

I was wondering if it was possible to have a jetway that looks like the one that London Gatwick uses:

Is it possible to include the red strip onto the jetway? If so, I'm assuming I'm going to have to do some file editing.

Thanks,

Acerazus.

Hello it's possible

4 methods :
1) SODE, it uses an engine to animate a jetway you can find many threads about it here it is amazing and used by many developers
2) this one : https://www.fsdeveloper.com/wiki/index.php?title=Jetway_IK_video_tutorial /// https://www.prepar3d.com/SDKv4/sdk/modeling/3ds_max/modeling/jetway_modeling.html
3) make your own and use some modeldif animations
4) make your own module using C++ and use your own simobjects (SODE does this so it is easier to use SODE)

have a nice day :)

Hello,

Thanks for the quick reply. I'm wondering, what's the difficulty like? I don't want to create a jetway but instead, insert an already made jetway that had already been made and 'decorate' it with the red strip and logo that the image describes. I assume that software like 3ds max or gmax is required? I do have GSX level 2 and I assume I could use some jetway files from there.

Sorry, I'm quite new to this.

Making textures only is quite toxic
First you need someone that gives a jetway for free ( good luck )
The best thing is to make your own and place it
Look at SODE sdk it is easy all you need is some modelling and texturing ( i made it in less than 2 days ) and you can enjoy your own jetways

5) You can take the default FS Jetways and create a new object out of them that looks significantly better....but you would be limited to single color.....no stripes.

one texture that can be edited means possible strips !! but default jetway are quite (ugly) so a new one from scratch is better
with better bones assignements ....

No, you can't. The way the texture map is used is repetitive on all jetway sides. If you add a stripe, or any markings to the jetway wall, it will reappaear at the top. bottom, and opposite side.

I agree. the default jetway is very simplistic.......but good luck modelling one on Gmax! Possibly one of the most elaborated objects in FS. That skin and bone animation....PITA.
