• 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.

no AI on VVPC in P3Dv4.5 (SOLVED)


Why is no AI showing in this airport?
AI aircraft have all been converted and work fine on other airports.
See attachments.


PS: AIFP (latest release does not point to the addon airport but states the one it finds in 0903\scenery\APX77270.bgl.

You only have 3 parking spots and they are 14 meters in size. All aircraft using that airport are larger than that, which means no aircraft will park there. Make the parking spot 30 meters in size (for example) and see if you get aircraft then.
Could it be that easy?
You could be right though because the A1-J has not shown up in another airport either and the parking is too small for the C-130.
While you are at it, Tom , could you have a look at the AI Vnw A1-J and see if you can convert it? As a user aircraft it is fine but not as AI.

Sorry, I've actually never converted an AI aircraft with LODs. MRAI has, perhaps they could help?
Unfortunately there is no AI (I added a 70 feet parking for the AI C-130).
I think I will have to ask Don if it is normal that the Airport Editor refers to the default airport and not the addon one.

Sorry, I've actually never converted an AI aircraft with LODs. MRAI has, perhaps they could help?
there is little difference between converting an aircraft with LODs and one without. The major difference is that you need to insert objects (spinnning props, airstairs etc) into each LOD. Fortunately FSX & P3D don't need as many LODs on AI as FS9 so you can get away with 2 or 3 LODs.

Roby - where can I find this AI Vnw A1-J? I could take a look and see if it was easy to convert.

While I'm happy to help, I have no plans to convert planes I do not use, sorry.
Hi again,

I managed to get the AI A-1J to show up and fly at it should.
It took a whole lot of aircraft.cfg changes including deleting of the [airwrench] entries to make it work.
