• 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.

    MSFS Making paid scenery?

    Another factor to consider is support. Once you accept someone's money, you own them support service. Sometimes that may mean bug fixes. Shouldn't be a big deal, but it sounds like you're just starting out. If you start with freeware, you can determine whether the developer hobby is your...

    can anyone help me do a manual install of material plugin for 3ds max 2018?

    My SDK and MSFS are on C drive somewhere, and those connections seem to be made, but my 3dsmax never gets the sdk installation, that's on E drive. There must be a way to map this. Anyone?

    3ds max to MSFS2020

    Had a brief moment of optimism, but alas, no joy. Still a partial menu showing up in max 2018 flightsim drop down

    3ds max to MSFS2020

    Where did you put the file in the startup folder within the sdk? I don't see a startup folder in max 2018

    Kudos to Aesobo!

    I'm one if those sad souls with a dang expensive but officially unfit GPU, Quatro 5200k. Maxwell microarchitecture. As of update 5 I had no choice but to fly in clear skies to avoid flashing lights. Based on forum conversations at the zendesk, I was assured this wouldn't be fixed, because my...

    Fun to see you all again

    I used the word trainer, as I looked into what a variable speed prop and retractable gears were doing on a skylane. Turns out they were employed to train pilots on complex operations. Sent from my SM-A205U using Tapatalk

    Fun to see you all again

    this is a funny one, huh Dick? Interesting....flight sim developed using a really imaginative approach that worked really well for certain things. I love the idea of remotely assembling imagery and the autogen is spectacular. I must admit to finding fault with their business practice, of...

    Fun to see you all again

    Congrats for keeping flightsim development alive for 3rd parties! And best of luck with this new beast. As I get older, I get less tolerant of how things seem to work nowadays, and of course, nobody cares. I would never produce a product and sell it, only to ruin some of my customer's...

    3DS Max No Flightsim Material in 3dsmax 2018

    Hi all, there have been a number of posts on this subject, but I end up confused due to different issues people bring into the discussion. So, being baffled, I'll ask very simple questions. 1. Is it true that I should see a "flightsim" material in the 3dsmax 2018 materials browser following...

    Airfield building data

    For years I've used doorways for this purpose. Your photo should be looking directly at a wall with a door or you have to photoshop the pic to take out perspective. Then assume something for a door. I often use 2.2m as the door hit. Now you can measure the door in pixels, and you divide the...
