• 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 How to make offline AI plane to be static plane?

I have weird request. I want to make AI offline model to be static at airport. I mean, i have offline .bgl traffic plans for certain aircraft model, but i want to keep that plane in the ground. Is there some variables i can play with in .cfg files, that model wont leave the parking spot, even that plane has timetable to follow?
I don't know the answer to your actual question, but I do have a possible workaround. I don't use the sim, but what we do in earlier sims is to schedule the aircraft to fly once a week in the middle of the night. You'll never see it move. If possible, you could also remove the taxiway leading to the parking spot. In earlier sims this causes the aircraft to just disappear, instead of taxiing out.
MSFS DevMode allows any SimObject to be placed as a static object. Some people report static models that match the user aircraft also have active animations, I've not seen this to be the case, but you could make a "unique" copy and remove the animation definitions from the model XML, or you could just freeze the animations in MCX and compile the model like a scenery library object.
