Update: [Official Forum Post Added] FSDreamTeam Releases Major Update to GSX


Update 01-Jul-19 @ 09:50z

[Update is written by Calum]

FSDreamTeam has released the official forum post with a few key bits of information for the community. In the forum post, the team recap some of the new features that have come with this free update to GSX. The biggest one is the brand new custom pushback module. A brand new visual customisation tool will enable people to have better pushbacks in either Snap to AFCAD mode or in Free mode.

The other big change is to do with the inclusion of brand new PBR materials and objects. As simply adding PBR to the old models wouldn’t yield best results, FSDreamTeam re-built many of the objects with greater detail. Furthermore, additional human models with improved skeletons (for smoother animations) have also been added.

Other improvements FSDreamTeam wanted to highlight is the new camera system, better interaction with third-party aircraft (it can read plenty of data being sent now by GSX), new DirectX rendering system and also the new Towbarless Pushback vehicle which raises and lowers the aircraft during operations.

The update can be fetched either through the FSDreamTeam Add on Live Manager, or by downloading the GSX installer again. This is a free update for all owners of GSX.

FSDreamTeam has also added a slightly different change log to the one we found in the installer.

Additional GSX Update Video – Customising Jetbridges

GSX PBR Update Preview 2 Customization

After yesterday’s extensive FSDreamteam GSX update video, we are pleasantly surprised to see yet another highlight the new features to come from the free update.

In this second video, FSDreamteam shares how quick and easy it will be to add custom logos and artwork to jetbridges that use the GSX SODE jetbridge. The video sees the team demonstrate you will be able to add custom logos and text to your liking. This can quickly enhance the look and feel of even default airports.

The same customisation can also be achieved for catering trucks also. Using the new camera system, you will be able to track and follow your newly painted truck from the starting point to the aircraft itself.

These new features will only be available in Prepar3D V4.4 and above.

Further new features for GSX include PBR texturing, re-worked models, new animations and additional vehicles. The extensive update will be released free of charge. You can see everything we found out in yesterday’s video in our previous post.

Should there be any additional preview videos, we will update this post accordingly, rather than issue a new one.
