• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Adding Airlines to parkingspec list

I am trying to add airlines to the parking list for use in FSX-SE. Im using ADE 175. I find 2 files for parking in FSX. I add the airline to both and save. Then when I go to the airport in which I want to add the airline to some gates when I place the code in the gate information
no color shows for the gate even though the date shows that the new airline is assigned to that specific gate. So How do I get the color to show. Additionally the airline I added does not show on the listing of all airlines when I open the list.
Tell us exactly which file(s) you are editing and cut-and-paste into your next post your additional line of data (plus a line above and below it for reference).

You need to add the information to the file "parkingspecs" which is in your FSX folder within ADE.

Format is as follows:
Airline, 255,255,255,255, XXX

the 255's give you the colour and XXX is the airline code

To add what Dave has said, this list will also help you that someone uploaded awhile back

first number is 255, followed by numbers corresponding to the letters

A - 0
B - 10
C - 20
D - 30
E - 40
F - 50
G - 60
H - 70
I - 80
J - 90
K - 100
L - 110
M - 120
N - 130
O - 140
P - 150
Q - 160
R - 170
S - 180
T - 190
U - 200
V - 210
W - 220
X - 230
Y - 240
Z - 250

so ......... American Airlines,255,0,0,110,AAL ...... would look like this
and ..... British Airways,255,10,0,220,BAW ........... like this
