• 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 Creation of a new airport with frequencies and ILS

Hi everyone, I created this new thread because I can't find the answer to my question:
With SDK of MSFS2020 I created a new LIKS inexistent airport in Sibari Italy. Previously done both with XP11 and FSX with ADE.
I can't find the way to enter the frequencies of the airport like: tower, ground, approach, arrival departure etc ...
I tried to insert an ILS but in BUIL stage gives me an error.
From what I saw on this forum I understand that you have to insert these instances by hand in the Objects.xml file or am I wrong?
Is there any kind soul who can help me in this project?
Maybe by posting a script to be included in the file, inserting another name as ICAO that I am going to modify and related LAT and LONG.
I am attaching the project file, if someone wants to modify it for radio assistance would do what is appreciated
I thank you all
Paolo by Italy

Yes you need to enter these into the xml-file directly at the moment.
Check the SimpleNavData-Project in the samples of the SDK-Folder. Don't open it, just look at the xml.
There are these entries there:
XML:
<Com frequency="131.55" type="APPROACH" name="APPROACH NAME"/>
<Com frequency="121.25" type="APPROACH" name="APPROACH NAME"/>
<Com frequency="126.95" type="ATIS" name="ATIS NAME"/>
<Com frequency="122.45" type="CLEARANCE" name="CLEARANCE NAME"/>
<Com frequency="122.7" type="DEPARTURE" name="DEPARTURE NAME"/>
<Com frequency="126.0" type="DEPARTURE" name="DEPARTURE NAME"/>
<Com frequency="118.3" type="GROUND" name="GROUND NAME"/>
<Com frequency="124.2" type="TOWER" name="TOWER NAME"/>
<Com frequency="121.9" type="UNICOM" name="UNICOM NAME"/>
<Ils lat="44.70255557798028" lon="-0.594172903335208" alt="186.75000597599998F" heading="94.2565568340202" frequency="114.6" magvar="0.0" ident="IL00" width="5.0" name="ILS NAME"/>
<Ils lat="44.695839356262276" lon="-0.6000814279634266" alt="186.75000597599998F" heading="274.25655683402016" frequency="117.3" magvar="0.0" ident="IL01" width="5.01" name="ILS NAME"/>

Just pick the ones you need and add them in your xml somewhere within the "Airport" section.

If you have dme or a slope on the ils frequency you can embed them in the ils section. Example for DME:
XML:
<Ils lat="47.08083333" lon="6.78666667" alt="1026.6" heading="234.3" frequency="108.15" magvar="0.0" ident="ICF" width="5.0" name="ILS 24">
    <Dme lat="47.08574" lon="6.79546" alt="1027.5" range="27N"/>
</Ils>

Ohh thank you very much, mrbump, I copied the radio frequencies from the ADE xml file for FSX and pasted into the file at the end before <Airport /> and they work even if written differently:
<Com name = "SIBARI" type = "FSS" frequency = "132.7500" />
<Com name = "SIBARI" type = "FSS" frequency = "121.7200" />
<Com name = "SIBARI" type = "APPROACH" frequency = "135.6700" />
<Com name = "SIBARI" type = "APPROACH" frequency = "119.0000" />
<Com name = "SIBARI" type = "ATIS" frequency = "125.6200" />
<Com name = "SIBARI" type = "CENTER" frequency = "132.6200" />
<Com name = "SIBARI" type = "CLEARANCE" frequency = "128.3250" />
<Com name = "SIBARI" type = "CLEARANCE_PRE_TAXI" frequency = "136.5200" />
<Com name = "SIBARI" type = "CTAF" frequency = "135.8000" />
<Com name = "SIBARI" type = "DEPARTURE" frequency = "125.3700" />
<Com name = "SIBARI" type = "GROUND" frequency = "118.2200" />
<Com name = "SIBARI" type = "TOWER" frequency = "122.4500" />
<Com name = "SIBARI" type = "MULTICOM" frequency = "125.3000" />
</Airport>

for the G / S ,ILS and VOR I could copy it from the file in SimpleNavData-Project you are quoting.
Meanwhile, thank you very much for your advice, I will surely ask you again for help using the SDK.
Happy Holidays
 
Mrbump
I wanted to ask you if it is better to put UNICOM or MULTICOM, I don't know the difference, but I see that usually one puts UNICOM as frequency.
Thanks
 
Both are american terms. I think Unicom is closest to our uncontrolled or partially controlled airfields with "blind transmission".

Btw: Your com entries are not different from the ones in the sdk-example. Only the XML-Attributes are in a different order.
 

mrbump

you very much for your answer, do you think the placement and generation of ILS works in the new version 0.9? in the previous always red errors

Hello mrbump, in the new airport I have created the complete taxiways with 1 gate. when dominating the roaring, I am allowed near the runway without telling me the names of the taxis and he does not show me the blue arrows. I put a jetway into the gate and works, then when I insert other things like the pushback, the fuelcar gives me an error. if I insert them as scenery does not give the mistake but the landlord ignores them.
What should I implement?
I searched for tutorials in YT but in vain.
Do I need to create a Ground Service? how you do it?
Thank you and good evening
 
On which file exactly are you editing the frequencies? On the actual package xml or the package source? Thanks!
