• 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 SDK Documentation not up to date? [Solved]

With the last SDK I have found that the official documentation is a bit different from what you get into the editor.
I can't find the way to add the Jetway to the Gates, and the options for the Generic Control Tower to have the procedural ones.
As what is shown in the pictures does not match the last SDK, any idea to what to do?
Thank you.

If you notice any inconsistency with documentation and the sim please open a issue at devsupport, so It Is gonna be fixed in next update


(On my side, i have placed my first jetway in su9 and, if i remember correctly, the instructions provided worked fine )

How did you do that? I can't find the "Add SimObject" feature in the Properties or anywhere else.

Did you select the red stuff (the jetway group)
before opening the Properties?

Remember that you need to add a gate before adding the related jetway Simobject, once you add a gate the red jetway group Is gonna appear automatically so you can changes properties

Can't help more at the moment 'cause unable to open the Sim till this evening

I actually have both. First I put the gate, but a got warning (in yellow), then the Jetway from the SimObject library, but again no red errors, just yellow warnings. The Gate hasn't been set as a group as in the previous SDK 0.17, it seems a stand alone object. I'll post a picture once at home. Same for the Control Tower, thatis not in the Airport Group and can't be move in it either. Sei il Mamu del ProjectLifts?

I have found the screenshot, where selecting the gate (B2 and B4 in yellow) there is no group. The others are RAMPs. The Jetways for both GATEs have been positioned nearby.

Can hereby confirm that everything works as expected and 99% like SDK doct

Add Airport
Add a Taxywayparking type GATE_HEAVY (or _SMALL or MEDIUM)
in the scenery editor, click on the yellow arrow to expand the group
click on the red jetway
open the properties
click add simboject
select a jetway simojbect
click add
assign a instance id
move the jetway in a convenient position

I have found the problem: I usually add parkings as RAMPs all around, and then edit the heading, numbers, sizes, etc. If you change from RAMP to GATE in the parking properties, there comes the issue: the SDK considers it a kind of "halfway" between a GATE and a RAMP, so it's a gate without the possibility to add its simobject. You must add it directly as a GATE, or it will not work. I'll report to Zendesk. - [UPDATE: They are aware of the issue and told me it's under investigation]
