• 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 Wrong Tower

    ADE doesn't import objects yet from default airports. You need to use the MSFS built-in tools to exclude then replace the tower. This is really easy to do, plenty of video tutorials on airport editing on youtube like these: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL_Up4sAmkCfXIOqIRzS9OpQEJRyW-rnoq...

    MSFS ADE 2020 Alpha 14 Released - WITHDRAWN

    Cheers Jon, was looking forward to this build to finally give things a go with stock airfield editing and it all worked perfectly. Installed, loaded a default turf field, removed the vegetation exclusions from the AI paths, built the project, loaded in the sim and viola!! No more barecut forest...

    Editing default airports

    my hope for being able to just tweak and not have to replace in MSFS is because unlike previous stock airports these are *so close* to being fine as-is. I've just finished surveying all the airports in NJ/NY/PA/DE/MD and the general result is that they are all perfect blend-in recreations that...

    I'm betting you can't custom place them individually

    Can turf fields be built not to exclude trees?

    yes I see that is what is being done and I'm looking to NOT do that. Eventually - haven't had time to try yet which is why I'm asking ahead for any advice

    Can turf fields be built not to exclude trees?

    Has anyone worked on small turf fields and kept all the surrounding trees? For example this image: I've seen this on every turf airfield I've looked at (100+ in NJ/NY) so it must be some kind of exclusion poly around the airport or the runway. One of my first things to do when I get time to...

    MSFS Help on How to Modify Default Airports

    my hero!! yea works a charm. Runway threshold is still not as high over terrain as it should be but at least it is FLAT and that's all I care about right now. I'll fix the rest with a full airport remodel once the SDK matures a bit more. Thanks again my friend!

    MSFS Help on How to Modify Default Airports

    Hey Jon, thanks for the confirmation on not being able to load default airports. A shame, Asobo had to know they couldn't get it all right and that ppl would want to fix things on their own. I gave up on finding a simple solution after some more work digging around. will just have to wait for...

    MSFS Help on How to Modify Default Airports

    Sup all, long time no see - been ~7yrs since I stopped with FSX but MSFS2020 has got me back. Was not going to bother with scenery design so soon except my home airport KBLM has a rather nasty elevation problem for the end of one of its runways I have installed the SDK but not sure how to...

    Airport Design Editor Version 1.61.5210

    comments are awesome, but I think they should be added to the View list. Also, not sure how I feel about the single-line text box but we'll see how much commenting I need to actually do with my comments (as will others) to determine whether a multi-line box would be a better thing.
