    Hello,

    I’m planning to buy your VDGS pack, however I have a question.

    I would like to implement it on Aerosoft Genf pro. Since they implemented a parking system based on the POV, I was thinking of overlapping this static parking system with yours.

    However – I don’t know if it’s like that IRL or if they made a mistake -, the parking system on their scenery is not aligned with the stand centreline. Will this be a problem with your parking system ?
    My question, if I was not clear enough : does the parking system need to be aligned with the line where I want my aircraft to stop or can there be an offset ?

    Thanks.

    When using SODE Placer to place the VDGS, there is an offset option that allows the display to be offset from where you define the parking line (and you would align that with the line marking in the scenery). However, the offset does not appear to work for the traffic light type VDGS.

    Regards,

    Darryl

    Exactly, thanks Darryl for the answer.

    The traffic light type VDGS does not support that since the alignment is being done “geometrically” using two lighted poles placed behind each other which need to be aligned with the parking line.

    Right, thanks guys.

    That’s unfortunate, actually there can be an offset IRL !

    It’s only the traffic light style VDGS that doesn’t support this. All the other ones of course do! 🙂
