Hi all, I am testing my hand at creating airports (particularly small airstrips to get my feet wet). I have done a pretty major upgrade to a small airstrip and added parking spots among other things. I noticed that I had airport ground crew at the parking spots, and did research on removing them using AirportServices. This all worked, but i ran into the issue where I nuked services at all airports. I have been reading forum posts for weeks trying to get the ground crew removed from just my little strip without affecting anywhere else. I have read conflicting messages about this being a bug and some say that a specific directory and naming structure will solve the problem. I just can’t get it to work. Most posts are 1 or 2 years old. Is there any update on this?
I have found many small airports with parking and no ground crew in MSFS, so I know it is possible.
Basically, I just want parking spots at my little airstrip without a ground crew and without removing ground crew from all airports.
I apologize if this has been answered a hundred times, but I am stuck.
if you are working on a small airport, like grass strip, it is unlikely you have workers with full featured tugs
in order to avoid tugs and workers on parking spots, you need to add, in your packageSources, a folder called AirportServices
Inside the AirportServices, add a new folder with the ICAO of the airport you are working on (e.g. LIDL for the tutorials)
inside the LIDL, put the following code in a file called Services.xml
Thank you both so much for the info, I feel like I am making progress. The only thing is that I am not clear on the above. I found an XML file in my PackageDefinitions directory, but I don’t know what the SPB false PackageSources\AirportServices AirportServices line refers to.
I have an AssetGroup for FL52_Service (that is the airport I am modifying), but I just don’t understand what has to be changed in this xml file.
