• 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.

Visibility based on player circumstances/parking pos

Hello again community. I have posted here before asking about visibility of models. i just about get the concept of making stuff appear or disappear based on date, time of day etc.
however, having recently released my airport EFKI (kajaani) on the marketplace, i would like to further inquire about this concept because i got some feedback from some of my customers asking if there was no way to get rid of the static ATR aircraft i have placed.
it's a small airport and i can see why some people would like to clear up the apron but i would not really want to completely get rid of the ATR either obviously. so here my question: is there a way to spawn the ATR aircraft not just based on time of day/date, but also get rid of it if people choose to spawn THEIR aircraft in its place? is there any other tips you could give me to make this more dynamic? the way that i see it, even if you make it only appear at certain times of day (like actual arrival times), it will simply "pop" into existence which also isn't great. any feedback on how to solve this more elegantly?
many, many thanks!

Just a little late here, but if you have the aircraft you have placed is a SimObject, the XML controlling it is available to the customer, UNLESS it is encrypted. Perhaps you could package an alternative xml to remove it?
