• 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 [CLOSED] Airport Services - GA_MEDIUM Has no small pushback available


I created a AirportServices asset in my Airport and I see it in the layout.json so it is reconized.
However, when I spawn at a RAMP_GA_MEDIUM, I see no small pushback available (ATC tell me no one is available), even if I have filled the services.xml to do so

What did I do wrong ?

Services.xml :

<SimBase.Document Type="ServiceFile">
    <ParkingSpace  name="RAMP GA MEDIUM" MinParkingSpaces="0">
        <!-- pour quel type de parking on active les services ? -->
            <ParkingEntry ParkingType="RAMP_GA_MEDIUM"/>
        <!-- les travailleurs animés -->

After some research, the GA_RAMP_MEDIUM limits CRJ (which is recognized as a big jet in game) airport services. Even if the size of the medium ramp is increased, there is now way to force a small pushback for a "big plane"
