• 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 Connecting boarding stairs to parking position

Somehow this doesn't work for me. Just like with a jetway, I created new start positions, which created a "jetway" under that, and that could have a simobject added, either a jetway or a boarding stairs. And the ASO_Boarding_Stairs (I think that's the name) appears connected by a green dotted line, just like a jetway would. Hower once placed it just starts slowly movng forward. When project is built, it does the same: just moves forward slowly in the straight line, totally ignoring my aircraft that is spawned at the starting point. ATC has only option for "jetway connection" but once I aks for a jeetway it says "jetway is unavailable,try again later". So what am I doing wrong, and how to connect boarding stairs to a start without a jetway, so it works properly and comes over and attaches to an aircraft? I must be missing something, but the procedure is not described in the SDK Adocumentation. Please advise.
 
Hello I'm trying to do it also.
For a ramp Parking, I dont add Simobject in game, but i'm using the airport Services and Living world to position the stairs and choose my simobject for a specific parking.
Ramp stairs is available at right place (but my simobject is still bugged so W.I.P.)
 
Hey @RomanDesign ,
I guess you´ve already taken a look to this video? It helped me

Also to a Parking Spot you can add specific sceneryobjects... I think that´s explained in this one
 
OK, David from Asobo on closed dev forum has advised me that Boarding Ramp (Stairs) are spawned automatically for the GA Large and Cargo parking spots. Video mentioned that steps can be added same as gateway to the Gate spot, but it's actually not correct, they behave incorrectly. Spot has to be GA Large or Cargo to spawn stairs that behave correctly. No need to attach anything else. I checked and it works, stairs are there and can be called.

Thanks!!! Lesson learned for all :)
