• 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.

FSX Vehicle Fuel Trucks

When you add a Vehicle Fuel Truck to FSX in some cases it will not find your airplane. Each parking spot has an invisible bounding box embedded inside the parking spot.

Some airport bounding boxes are very small for some unknown reason. The Fuel Truck behavior is such that when you call for fuel the truck will start on its way and then somewhere along the route path will stop as if it ran out of gas.

If the invisible bounding box is very very small the plane has no room for parking error and it MUST BE centered over the parking "T" exactly. If by chance you park in one of these parking spots and the fuel truck stops on its way to you then go into slew mode and move your plane a small amount.

This same invisible bounding box effects the conveyor belt animated vehicle behavior when parking a plane at a GATE type parking spot. Again use the slew mode to move the plane a small amount which will seat it in the box.
