Missing Ground Services



  • You may have noticed that when you land at your destination airport there is currently no Marshaller available to guide you into your parking spot. And, you may have also noticed that you can't request a Fuel Truck from Ground Services... This is because no Ground Services are currently configured for this aircraft.

    To configure these Ground Services just add the following [SERVICES] section to the aircraft.cfg file, after the [PILOT] section...

    [SERVICES]
    FUELTRUCK =1
    BAGGAGE_LOADER =0
    CATERING_TRUCK =0
    BOARDING_RAMP =0
    GROUND_POWER_UNIT =0
    PUSHBACK =0
    SMALL_PUSHBACK =0
    MARSHALLER =1
    JETWAY =0

    If you also want the small pushback tug to be available, change the SMALL_PUSHBACK parameter from 0 to 1, although I prefer to just do manual pushbacks using [CTRL] + [P].



  • I am really hoping they're adding all of the config changes you're suggesting to the upcoming update...

    Just to be clear, we can only fix issues that are unique to our aircraft and are not as a result of limitations of the host simulation or compromises made to get around issues with the host simulation. If you see something that you think doesn't work as it should, raise a support ticket with JF and we will look into it. We are always open to suggestions (via support tickets) on how to improve the software, but please bear in mind that some changes suggested may also impact adversely in other areas of the aircraft's performance.

    Regarding the ground services, those changes will be included in the next update.



  • The following additional changes must be made to the aircraft.cfg file for the Marshaller to appear... He will not appear when the parking type is set to "ANY", so it must be changed to "RAMP".

  • @RetiredMan93231 Interesting. I'm assuming by Marshaller you mean the man with the wands. I have not made those changes and he does appear for me. For instance, when I land at EGKA Shoreham in the Piper Arrow and request taxi to parking I am directed to H3 and the man with the wands is there directing me in (with his mate on the phone there as well). I'm using Brighton City Airport Shoreham v1.3 by mkvy on Flightsim.to.



  • @Sender46 , Yes... the Marshaller is the guy with the two flashlights. It's interesting that he appears with that add-on airport, because he doesn't appear at any of the default airports unless these configuration changes are made to the aircraft. The MSFS default GA aircraft all have these configuration settings. I also have my WORKER DENSITY set very low, to get rid of the guys that are just standing around, on the phone, and getting in the way... This might also affect when the Marshaller will appear or not.
