• 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.

First of all, I am a total novice so please go easy on me.
I am using FSX SE.
I have the P3D v1.4 SDK installed.

All I want to do is change the parking sizes at FAPE from small to medium.
Have no clue. Please help - the manual is GREEK to me!!

Regards
Trevor

I assume this is the default FAPE airport?

1. Start ADE.
2. Menu - File/Open Stock Airport.
3. Type in FAPE.
4. Click on FAPE in the box.
4. Click Open.
5. Click on one of the green circles - these are the parking spots. It will turn orange.
6. Press enter - the Properties box will open.
7. Click the arrow to the right of Type entry. A drop down box will open.
8. Choose GATE MEDIUM from the list.
9. Click OK.
10. Menu - File/Save Airport. Change folder location if needed - I use ADE/FSX/Projects.
11. Click Save.
12. Menu - File./Compile Airport. Change folder location if needed (must be an active FSX scenery folder). I use FSX/Addon Scenery/scenery (the default).
13. Click Compile.
14. Start FS and check out your edited airport.

Hope this helps,

You can compile to the scenery subfolder of any folder that is listed in the P3D Scenery Library as Enabled (or Active?).
