Gate Assignments

Howdy...

Not sure if this is a FB issue or not, but I am starting here because it only seems to happen at the FB airports.

KSFOHD as an example: After landing in any of my passenger planes and switching to Ground Control and requesting Taxi to Gates, instead being assigned a passenger gate like B31, it sends me to the north side of the airfield to what appears to be a cargo terminal...

Is that something your scenery controls within P3Dv5.2.22 ?

Thanks in advance,
Clearjet

We will look into your reported issue. First time I have heard anything about parking assignment issues.

Do you have any AI programs running that would alter the AFCAD in anyway or overwrite ours?

The timestamp on the AFCAD shows 4/9/2020. I just built this computer on 4/11/2021 so it doesn't look like it has been modified.

I do use UTLivev2 and GSX. I also have MegaScenery UltraResSanFrancisco installed, but when I "Start Troubleshooting" in the manager, it doesn't flag any conflicting .bgl's. It did however, bark profusely about the MS UltraRes Phoenix with your KPHX installed.

I will test by disabling the MS scenery and disabling UTLivev2 and see if that makes any difference.

Yes, any traffic application you install will cause issues like this. I am not saying specifically that it is in this instance. I would definitely do a general search on your computer for anything related to SFO and see what pops up in the form of AFCADs etc. Don't just search the sim folder, search your entire drives because those traffic programs store files all over the place.

Uninstalled both UTLive2 and the MS HD scenery and no change. Took a short hop from KOAK to KSFO in my PMDG 737NGXu, landed on 28L. Asked for a gate and hey gave me Romeo5, which is a Heavy gate on the north side according to GSX.

Did you ensure that all the files for those applications were removed? This is one of the biggest issues with traffic programs, even when uninstalling them they leave files behind.

If all the files are gone, I'm not sure what your issue can be.

For default ATC, your user aircraft needs the line "atc_parking_codes=XXX" in the respective flightsim section of the aircraft.cfg.
XXX should be the code representing the texture, e.g. UAL for United.
Sadly most repaints don't come with this line by default. I never understood why...

I'd recommend not to use default ATC, at least after your arrival.

Thanks... for PMDG aircraft the line is atc_parking_codes=

You are right and this is of course the correct line for any user aircraft.
I corrected my post. I must have been in a hurry.
