• 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.

I also want to know. It will need to tilt around the top and have its wheels rotate.
Well I'm not really bothered about those smaller wheels since they aren't that big of a deal. But I'll try to figure out the stair part on the weekend.

Hi,

Since SU4, and now SU5, every build of my package leads to that kind of error :

1628515119994.png


I am using the sample without any modifications with 3DS MAX 2021, SDK up to date... Does the same with my custom jetway which used to work until SU4.
So I tried to change the object properties deleting every lines except BJS GUID.

Even tried an early version of 3DS with no success.

Any idea ?

No luck with foldable stairs, we'll have to fold them for now. The IK chain is built specifically for MSFS to understand. If someone ever succeeds with this - let us know.

Hi all,
Just wanted to say thanks for this thread! After contemplating replacing the glitching default jetways I'm using at my airport with something I could at least control the LOD settings with this morning, it's just passed midnight here and I have a fully custom one now.
Thanks again.

I am having the exact same issue. Spent 2 days trying to figure it out and no luck...

If anyone else has this issue, please do share any results, as I'm pulling my hair out here... 😊

Yes, the same error and scenery can't build the gate model. How to resolve this? Thanks

@TheoAzur @max6996 and all who have this error.
I found a solution!
SDK 0.14.0 makes this error. You should downgrade to 0.13.0 and all be fine. I solve this issue and export gates successfully.

Hi. Creating my jetway, I ran into one problem. When I start moving on the ramp, the outermost part circled in the screenshot drops sharply by several degrees and stays in this position until the ramp is in its original place. I used the bones from the SDK samples as the basis. At first I thought I was doing something wrong. But when I took and exported the default gangway from the SDK, it was exactly the same way the bow is lowered. I've been struggling with this for two days now. Please help.

Looks like the chain of the connected nodes are wrong. The base of the jetway only will move up and down. The round part only turns to right and left. The behavior is set in the xml file with constrains. There is no need for bones, only for the hood animation. I made a tutorial you can find here:

Похоже, цепочка подключенных узлов неправильная. Только основание трапа будет двигаться вверх и вниз. Круглая часть поворачивается только вправо и влево. Поведение задается в XML-файле с ограничениями. Кости не нужны, только анимация капюшона. Я сделал учебник, который вы можете найти здесь:
Пользовательское руководство по Jetway
Привет. Спасибо за помощь. Дело в том, что это все еще проблема с симкой. Как и все дефолтные, также опустите голову. И даже кастомные. Попробуйте первый раз забежать на стоянку и подключить пандус, все будет хорошо, зайдите в главное меню и вернитесь в тот же порт на стоянке. Голова опустится.

Hi guys. While SU5 has completely broken the SDK, I'm trying to make a jetway with a stair. Does anybody have a proper bone setup for this stair to work? Thanks
Has anyone found a way to setup this? I’ve seen the tutorial video from @Peter Hornfeck where the stairs are animated.
It would be very kind if someone shared their method about this.
Thanks

Hello, no the stairs are not animated. Maybe it looks like, but so far I did not found a way to animate the stairs. And I own some airports of very good developers, which have no animated jetways. They also have no sound for the jetway. It seems, this is not working in the current FS2020 versions.
