No ground services available at the taxiparking options at SDK after SU7

Hi after the SU7 I lost the capability of placing gates with ground services, they simply disappear, so I just can place gates and ramps without ground services.

Also, I am having problems placing jetways... they disappear after placing them when I try to move them, I have to check/uncheck the shadow option at properties every time I move the object.


Can you anyone help me?

Hello @Toninomex ,

Do you have the same behavior with your other projects?
I wasn't able to reproduce this issue on my side.
Can you send me a sample of your source package ?

(You can select viewable by moderators in the dropdown menu bellow the submit button)

Regards,

Boris

If I upload an existing project the previous parking spots do have ground services at the scenery but not at the Dev mode, and of course if I want to place a new parking spot I will not have ground service.

This scenery was created before the SU6

This is the behavior at the sim...

As you can see there are no ground services attached to the ramp

Hello @Toninomex ,

As long as you have your project opened and the related BGL loaded, you will not see any airport services for the plane you spawned with.
The best way to test it is to build the package then put it in the community folder and restart the sim

Regarding the jetways problem you are experiencing, it would be very helpful if you could send us a video of your problem and the project you used.

Best Regards,

Boris

Thank you Boris.

Yes, I understand that I won't see any ground service while the Dev mode is on and I am designing the airport. What I intend to show in the pictures was that before the update, on the red circle space appeared the ground services list associated with the parking type, and now, that "list" do not appear (listing) nor the ground services once I export the package to the community folder. I will try to record a video too.

I think I know what you mean. I just started picking up the SDK and based on older versions of the SDK, each Parking has additional Ground Services under Properties however in the latest SDK i can't see those options either. I assumed they just removed them. I started delving more into the Services documentation of the Docs so i guess have to do it manually now.

Thank you for your answer...

How do you place ground services individually?

Hello Boris

I haven´t being able to record a movie for you as I don´t have any plugin to record my screen.

But I tried to add parking places and they do appear at the scenery but without ground services... I don´t know what to do

Is there any way to assign parking spots to specific airlines code?

Hi @Toninomex ,

Since the update 0.15.0 of the sdk , as indicated in the changelog: "The obsolete "Scripts" section of the TaxiwayParking properties is no longer visible for the user".

Moreover, the edit button that was present on this Scripts section was broken for almost a year.

What was the purpose of this scripts section for you?

To customize the ground services you can use the Airport Services


Regarding your last question, it is not possible to assign parking spots to specific airline codes.

PS: please use "Comment" Instead of "Write an answer" it will be easier to follow the topic :)

Regards,

Boris

When you say "it is not possible to assign parking spots to specific airline codes." is it because the SDK ignores those options that used to be available in FSX? In FSX, you could add a

airlineCodes="JBU,DAL,RPA,EGF"

card to a TaxiwayParking object to do that. Is this now ignored?
