• 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 Looking for sample code

    Thank for the info. I also found this, it looks quite interesting: https://github.com/bymaximus/msfs2020-toolbar-window-template It looks like a very basic ingame panel that shows how to develop one, it could be a good starting base. I had no time to look into it yet.

    MSFS Looking for sample code

    Does any of you know where I can find some sample code for an ingame panel? I would like to develop an ingame panel similar to the VFR map and I don't know how to start. I simple sample that just displays a web page would be enough. Thanks, Eric

    MSFS Refreshing the model without restarting the sim

    I was wrong !!! Loading another aircraft and reloading my aircraft works and refreshes the model file, it works !! I guess I was wrong during my tests because I forgot to save the files before trying to refresh, what an idiot... Just in case it might be useful for someone else: if you do this...

    MSFS Refreshing the model without restarting the sim

    I already tried to load another aircraft and reload my aircraft, but it doesn't work better, while I am sure it was working before SU5. Regarding the project, the problem is that I have no project open. I modify the files in the aircraft folder (located in the Community folder) and I reload...

    MSFS Refreshing the model without restarting the sim

    Here is what I am talking about: In the sim, in developer mode, I open the model behavior debug window. I see the "CUSTOM" component I have created and I see my "EMA_Chrono" template. No doubt, my modified A320 interior model XML file is loaded in the VFS and taken into account. Now if I...

    MSFS Where is the SDK?

    Simple question today: I have just installed SDK 0.14, only the documentation. Unlike previous versions, I couldn't find a way to choose the installation location and now... I don't know where it is installed? Can someone help me finding it?

    MSFS Refreshing the model without restarting the sim

    This is exactly what I do. I copied the A320_NEO_INTERIOR.xml in my own folder organization, it is properly declared in my layout.json and I am 100% sure it is taken into account because I can see the modelbehavior in the sim. All this works perfect. The problem is that when I change something...

    MSFS Refreshing the model without restarting the sim

    My problem is that I don't build anything, I am just modifying an existing aircraft, the A320 Neo. I am sure Asobo implemented a sort of cache to speed up the speed (especially loading time) and when I update the files, it reads the cache instead of reading the new files. I would like to clear...

    MSFS Refreshing the model without restarting the sim

    Thanks for the clue, I will see if this can be transposed to aircraft.

    MSFS Refreshing the model without restarting the sim

    I can't remember how it was before SU5 but I think it was working fine. Anyway, since SU5, I can't refresh the interior model without restarting the sim. Each time I modify the interior model XML file (A320_NEO_INTERIOR.xml in my case), I try to refresh it using the 'Load' button of the aircraft...

    MSFS Reading traffic information

    I'm afraid I can't tell you much more about this. I am registering this listener in my class constructor and as far as I know this listener is necessary only for the traffic, which doesn't mean every coherent call requires a listener. I had to use this listener because my class is a subclass...

    MSFS Reading traffic information

    Sure. Unless your instrument class is a subclass of a BingMap class (I don't remember the exact class name), you need to register a listener before using this coherent call, otherwise it doesn't work. The code to register the listener is something like: Hope this will help. Eric

    MSFS Reading traffic information

    Thank you for taking care of my question. The console is OK, the problem was somewhere else and it has been solved. It was because of a listener registration that was missing. My TCAS now works fine.

    Prevent keys presses from reaching the sim

    I don't know how to do this and I am interested because I would like to be able to enter FMC data using the keyboard. It seems that TAP Designs successfully did it for their A220, maybe we should ask them :) See this video: [EDIT] You can directly go to 2'55, you will see he enters data in the...

    MSFS GetGameVarValue

    You're probably right Geoff, I am part of these "lazy" pilots who press B when the altimeter is wrong, so I never saw this bug. Next time I will pay more attention and will adjust the baro manually. When you say it is wrong, do you think it can only be fixed by Asobo in the sim code itself? If...
