PLEASE VOTE: Stands/Ramps/Gates "Drive-Thru" style

Hi!

In lack of the actual name for it (or shall we called them "taxi-through stands"? :) ):

It would be great ti be able to create ramps that work like these (both for user aircraft as well as AI traffic):

When reading the SDK it seems that only "dead end" gates/ramps are possible, which always require some kind of pushback or turnaround.

Two other good illustrations (source: https://forum.apoglabs.com/t/different-type-of-aircraft-stands/1678)

Hello Sasa,

You're right, this immersive option is currently missing. To overcome this issue I personally only create the taxiway path leading to the parking stand and I disable the pushback service option for this kind of stand. This is like a quick-fix and it's invisible for the player: the ATC leads the pilot to the correct path and he can leave it following the painted lines. There is a downside : if you activate the blue ribbon helper you'll see bad results.

So I look forward to hearing from this topic, hoping it will be accepted.

Regards.
