Jetway adverts

Post by TheBoeingMan » Tue Jul 30, 2013 8:33 am

Hello!

Since I went to the RW Dubai airport, I noticed that the jetways have HSBC adverts on them while in the Flytampa Dubai, they have 'Dubai Group' adverts on them. Will this be fixed in the near future?

Looks like a simple fix to me :) +1 for this request.

**These files are now attached a few posts down later in the thread**


Hi guys,

I made a little update for personal use with HSBC logos on the buildings - would certainly be willing to share the BMPs on here if it's ok with Martin (and if he doesn't have plans to make the changes himself). They were made on an FS2004 version, no idea of compatibility with FSX
As is usually the case, what I thought was going to be a simple change was more complicated than I expected :D ...bit restricted in what is possible without having to re-map textures etc. For example, the new logos on the actual jetways aren't possible as a quick paste job, because the same texture is mapped to each side and mirrored - so one side would always have a backwards logo. As I was just working within how the textures are currently placed (and that I am not great at doing night textures), it isn't exactly the same as it is at the real airport, but I just made it for my own use so it doesn't bother me.

T3A:
Had to make a compromise with the logo on the A380 gates and make the sign quite small, as the same textures are mapped to the T1 A380 gates F12 and F13 (which have shorter towers) - so a large logo would have been chopped in half on those two gates, and I know it would have irritated me even if I didn't park there :D

If the above logos were much larger, they would be chopped here (and it can't extend lower than that, because the lower glass pieces line up differently and are shared with other towers):

T1:
Again, as it is not just a simple dropping of textures into place on the jetways, it wasn't possible to make them look like they do in real life - so I just did a straight swap of the Dubai Bank logo for a HSBC logo - the new branding is there, it just isn't the same style as real.

Fantastic job J-rad!
Are you able to share these files? I have FSX and would love to have them...:)

Hey, sure I can email them to you, it is just 4 bitmaps - if you're okay with passing on an email address here in this thread I can send them to you, there's no private messaging function on this board unfortunately. I assume the files are the same in the FSX version, I guess you can just check them before you replace the originals.

I'd also like these new textures. Would you be able to upload them to a file server like hotfile or similar instead of emailing them? that way you can provide a link and we wont have to give out our email to spam bots.

Yeh that will definitely be easier, I'd just like to get the all clear from Martin first before I would sort of set them up to be openly downloaded....considering the textures are still 97% his work with me just dropping some new logos on, I'm not sure what the policy is with redistributing files.

I received some feedback that there are issues with using these textures in FSX....anyone else experienced something wrong after putting the textures in?

You forgot to tell everyone to delete the old files. I had trouble til I deleted the old ones.
