I need help with ground services

In the beginning, ground services were integrated with the taxi parking and that was great because when you place a parking spot it comes with the ground services, and no programing was required, but after SU7 they disappear, I can place the parking spot but no ground services are integrated anymore.

Can someone help find the way to place the ground services with the parking spot without having to make any programming code?

Hello @Toninomex ,

You said "no ground services are integrated anymore"
Can you give us more informations ?

If you are talking about the old Scripts/Spots sections in the TaxywayParking properties, they have been removed because they were obsolete.

At the moment, there is no tool in devmode to modify the ground services. The only way is to use Airport Services

If you want to see the ground services for your TaxiwayParking, you will need to build your scenery and put it in the community folder before restarting Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020.

Also, be aware that the size of the parking lot will affect the ground services available.
For example, for an A320 in a small parking space, the ground services will not have enough room to spawn.

Regards,
Boris

Yes, that is exactly what I am telling you. No more ground services are integrated into my parking spots. I can place the parking spot and the sim will recognize, but no more trucks are displayed.


OTHER QUESTION FOR YOU:

Is Asobo aware of a bug of the exclude function?. It happens in many airports that when you land everything is correct, but then if you quit the sim and load again the scenery, trees appear all over the place: Inside runways, taxiways, etc.

Thank youuuuu for answer my posts!

Hello @Toninomex ,

Happy to help ;)

For the exclusion issue, SU8 will be available in a few hours. Can you try again when you have it installed? If the issue is still there with SU8, please create a new post with screenshots/videos of the problem and we will look into it ;)

Regards,

Boris

Sorry, I thought you said 'Yes, that is exactly what I am telling you' to confirm my first answer which was"If you are talking about the old Scripts/Spots sections in the TaxywayParking properties, they have been removed because they were obsolete. "

Yes, yes, yes I understand perfectly since the first time you told me. But what I understood was that you have removed the scripts, not the ground services, which means that when I add a parking spot, they will still be there without the need to do anything else additionally.

I will try to add parking place after the update and then I will tell you if there are still missing.

Hello Boris

The exclusion problems seems to be fixed, but after placing a medium parking spot, it only appear the power truck. This are good news because in some way we know the parking spot is working. Now I just need to understand how can I add the rest of the vehicles.

So the first picture is how I can see the spotscreenshot-2022-03-04-152729.png

The second picture is how I add spot... as you can see, is a large ramp and the only ground service I´ve got is the power car.

I can send you this or other projects, but I have the de same issue on every new project. While I kept the ground services before the SU8 right now there is no way to generate them...

@Toninomex ,

Well, to investigate this, I need at least the project your showed me above.

When testing, it's important to try to understand how the scenery was built as it could be an issue with it.
I am not able to tell you what is going on just with some screenshots.
I made some tests on my side but I'm not able to reproduce your issue.


You can alway send us a light version of your project without objects and textures if you don't want to send us the full project, that's fine

Boris

There you go... this is a simple example of scenery where I have located a parking spot, and there are no ground services.

I hope is useful for you and we can fix it, for me and for others.
