Fuel Trucks Fueling Arriving AI

Post by Reggie » 25 Jan 2019, 19:14

I landed this morning at KMGM and one of the AI F-16's landed behind me. After taxiing to it's parking space, a fuel truck went to the aircraft as if it was summoned. I don 't see this occurring at all of my airports. I'm using P3Dv4.4.

I opened the airport in ADE and the only fuel truck track was around the terminal for passenger traffic. There was no vehicle track down the taxiway to the military base ramp.

Is there a tutorial on how to make this happen so I can add this feature to other airports?

Thanks,
Reggie

You simply need to add at least one parking spot with type "vehicle" to your network (the pink parking spot). That's where the fuel truck will wait when idle.

The vehicles will take the shortest route to your aircraft parking spot, so if there is no taxiway type "vehicle" (pink taxiway link) it can follow, it will simply follow the normal taxiway structure. That's how it gets to the military side in your case.
