  15. G'day everyone, After much anticipation and a long development cycle, we are very proud to formally announce that ORBX will be integrating SODE jetways and content into our airport products. Perhaps one of our most-requested product features, creating high-quality jetways has been high on our agenda for many years. So rather than teasing you with more discussion and previews, we decided to go about this announcement in a slightly different way; we have just released major SODE updates for all seven airports shown in this thread! Please enjoy the screenshots, learn a little more about SODE, and then be ready to jump into your favourite airliner at some of your favourite ORBX destinations! ORBX and Jetways: A short history Firstly, an apology... we are sorry that it has taken this long to get a good jetway solution out to you all. We know how badly you have wanted these, and rest assured, we have wanted them even more. ORBX was a pioneer of FSX jetway tech; founding team member Martin Henare was one of the first developers in the community to integrate CTRL-J jetways into Melbourne Intl back in 2008. This same tech could be found in other ORBX releases, including Brisbane, San Diego (v1), Bilbao, etc. As we all know though, ctrl-j tech has many limitations (it was essentially unfinished tech from the Aces team), and a quick browse of our support forum will show this. Whilst we have been keenly looking towards a solution to this conundrum for some time, it was decided that going with a known-and-respected existing tool (namely, SODE), to implement jetways into new projects. SODE will be well-known to many of you already; in fact we expect many of you will have experience using this already. Using an interface similar to the ATC menu; SODE is easy and intuitive to use. In addition to jetway technology, we will be introducing other SODE features into our projects - we have unique features for some of our GA airports in testing as we speak! Seven Airports: Now Jetway Ready! Without further delay, please find the details of all seven airports ready for you to download. Almost all service packs include major updates for core content; of note is the major service packs for Arlanda, Dubrovnik and San Diego. KSBA Santa Barbara Municipal Airport Misha's latest release, this major Southern Californian airport is now completely ready for flights in your favourite airliners and regional jets. As with all our new releases today, KSBA features custom-designed jetways modeled exclusively for this airport. Alongside the jetways update, this service pack includes other improvements and fixes as reported and requested by you. At a glance: - All jetways animated via SODE - Denser autogen updates around the airport - Other improvements and bug fixes ESSA Stockholm Arlanda Airport Marcus' Arlanda is receiving a huge service pack update today - far beyond the dozens of new animated jetways. As our most-requested existing airport for jetways, Marcus has used the opportunity to add a plethora of new features, content and detail. Brand-new high-detail jetway models, amazing ground textures (with special maps), fancy new GSE, an updated AFCAD file and many other features are just the start. Be ready to be blown away at the new content included in this major update! At a glance: - Jetways animated via SODE - New higher resolution ground textures with normal maps - Completely new high resolution gates and gate buildings - Updated selected buildings airside - New amazing AI-optimized AFCAD made by Urmel - Office One and constructions landside added - New vehicles & clutter airside KSAN San Diego International Despite releasing a mega service pack for San Diego only a few months ago, Matteo hasn't been resting on his laurels, and has included a bunch of updates alongside the SODE content with this latest service pack. Alongside making one our most popular airports jetway-friendly, expect to find new-and-improved dynamic lighting, updates to the AFCAD file and other fixes. At a glance: - Jetways animated via SODE - New and fixed dynamic lights with better looking splashes - Fixed issues of parking positions - Some textures have been improved LDDU Dubrovnik Airport Not to be outdone by the other guys, Misha has also gone to town with a substantial update for Dubrovnik. Alongside making your favourite European holiday charter flights jetway-ready, expect to find vast performance improvements to this famous airfield. Don't be fooled - the amount of work that has gone on to improve optimization and fps cannot be conveyed in screenshots; but rest assured you'll enjoy the difference straight away! At a glance: - Jetways animated via SODE - Major optimization overhaul of all airport models - Large performance increases over previous version KMBS MBS International The Turbulent team have put together some great improvements to Russ White's masterpiece with this latest service pack. As well as returning the jetways to SODE standard, expect to see other fixes and changes in response to your feedback. At a glance: - Jetways animated via SODE - Points all dynamic lights effects to 'controller' versions KIDA Idaho Falls Regional Another of Turbulent Design's most loved airfields (did you check out the livestream last week?), KIDA returns to a fully SODE-capable airfield. At a glance: - Jetways animated via SODE KGPI Glacier Park International Set at the foot of one of America's most stunning national parks, KGPI is yet another magnificent project for the Turbulent crew. As well as adding SODE jetway capability, this update also makes use of several new P3Dv4 features, including automatic dynamic snow/rain effects, and seasonal content. At a glance: - Jetways animated via SODE - Replaces OF controlled GP with dynamic model which reacts to snow/rain as well as seasons. - Points all dynamic lights effects to 'controller' versions What about our other jetway airports? We do have plans to update other jetway-capable airports with SODE content as we move forward - in fact there are a couple in development as I speak. Our priority has been to ensure our most-requested jetway airfields were ready for you today, but that said we certainly haven't forgotten about your other favourites. We won't make promises of timeframes or specific projects, but rest assured, we are looking at how best to implement this technology to our back catalogue. Of course, it goes without saying that SODE will be an integral part of new airport projects moving forward, alongside our vast suite of award-winning tech features such as Objectflow, Peopleflow and all the other favourites! We have several major airports in development right now (including those previewed in the 2019 Roadmap, and a few unannounced secret projects too!) that have already integrated SODE into the workflow, so be ready for some exciting new airport sceneries through 2019. That's great, but I'm ready to fly! So are we! All seven service packs have now been released via FTX-Central, ready for you to download. Most importantly, if you don't have SODE installed, FTX-Central will automatically install it for you - all you need to do is ensure that FTX-Central is up-to-date (version These service packs represent months of work from many of our core airport developers and IT infrastructure team. We would also like to extend our gratitude to SODE developer Jeffrey Stähli, for his excellent software and generous assistance with integrating SODE into FTX-Central. We are all very excited to finally release these updates for you all, and hope that you get many (many!) hours of extra enjoyment from these products. Cheers, and enjoy! Jarrad, SOURCE

  19. The next version of the FTX AU AI Traffic pack is nearing completion so I feel it is time to release some of the content and features to be included in this major update. Flight plans have been completely rewritten for all Australian airlines in line with actual schedules for July/August 2018 along with fly in/fly out schedules for the various mining operations in West Australia and Queensland. The new Qantas direct 787 flight between Perth and London has been included as well as the new routing for flights from Australia to the UK via Singapore instead of Dubai. Some International Airliner schedules have been updated as well. Aircraft types and models used by the various Airlines have also been updated in this process. Many AI models used in this package have been updated to include improved animations and gloss levels in the sim. Latest liveries have been used for both airliners and GA aircraft. Many airlines are now adding in-flight wifi so wifi domes have been added to airliners where appropriate. Here are some screen shots. This update will include a number of new aircraft models including some developed exclusively for the FTX AU AI Traffic pack. Aircraft lighting has also been updated with custom lights added for taxi lights as well as improvements to the light emissive mode implemented via the use of LUA scrips. These changes are much more FPS friendly than the default P3D Landing lights when using Dynamic Lighting. The most significant change for this release is the addition of military AI traffic for all current RAAF aircraft as well as some RNZAF aircraft. The Military section can be activated or deactivated by the user via FTX Central. It should be noted that this update will be for P43D V4 only. The task of maintaining this package for multiple flight simming platforms is becoming just too cumbersome given the size and scope of the project I cannot give a firm date for release of this updated package at this time but I feel there is still a good one to two months work yet to do before the pack is ready for distribution.
