• 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.

MSFS Blender Tutorial Animated Jetway HERE!

sim.cfg file is referencing wrong. Should be like this. Note the "_A" on the end like your model is named.

Hai, I want to ask you a question. I designed a Jetway using blender referring this link.(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ixztgc3mkCA) I completed empties and all xml as instructed. Also I can place the Jetways using sode. But my gate has no animations.
Is it necessary to create 'Amature/ bones' for this model before exporting? Please help

I was able to get all animations other than the hood deployment working without having an armature. You definitely need the empties and the parent relationships though.

Thank you for the reply. I am having doubt about the xml file.How can I make an xml file and attach to my model?But, I am using FSX steam edition. So I opened a new form-
How to animate custom Jetway using blender IK-Chain for FSX?

Hi everyone,

I exported my Jetway in MSFS and the hood is detached from the jetway and oddly stretched. The animation bones have the origin set to 0,0,0 as per the tutorial instructions. If I open the exported gltf in MCX the hood is not stretched but it's still detached from the jetway.

Do you have any suggestions?

I have the same issue, regardless of the origin of the hood. I have to export through Blender gltf exporter, the asobo blender exporter doesn't export the object.
I can't see the files on the flightdeckmagazin.com, have they been removed, or does anyone have them to link here?
