Why Do Only Like 2 Airports In FS2002 Have Gates?

I am so annoyed. Only like two airports in FS2002 have gates. Even denver doesnt have gates! It has ONE plane sitting on the tarmac. Am I doing something wrong? All my settings for scenery complexity and dynamic scenery are max. I did a full install, so it never asks for a CD. Usually I keep the No. 3 CD in there. Am I doing something wrong? Or is everyone's like that? Any help much appreciated.

Take care Big grin

FSpilot747,

Microsoft did that for a purpose. The flightsim world was calling for a sim that could be added to, i.e. more potential for scenery enhancements for scenery developers.

Microsoft was asked to exlude some gates and other scenery features in parts of the sim so that developers could upload enhancements to the internet to add those missing gates, and have downloads.

Basically it's a deal between the freeware FS designers and Microsoft to create an interesting sim that is funn to build scenery for. That's all.

FS2000 had nearly everything, so not alot of scenery was put out for it, hence less interest in FS dowloads. You'll see the fun of FS98 come back to FS2002 in the form of addons.

Wait about a month and you'll see a ton of addon sceneries on Flightsim.com that will add gates and everything else to the sim. It's made to be improved upon.

That's why it's so cool!!

ORD has gates, too. I'm not sure if it was the default scenery, but I saw a FS2002 screenshot of LHR with gates, so LHR might have gates, too.

BA,
If you want to see the jetways you have to have scenery complexity set to very dense, if you want to see the jetways + all the service trucks, stairtrucks etc. switch to extremely dense
Hope this helps

Thanks Crank. I'll give it a shot, but I hope it doesn't drop my frame rate too much.

Hehe, I have an old 3Dfx Voodoo3 3000AGP 16MB video card.  Smile
