• 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 A solution for fs-base-genericairport bug in runway

    Allo, A polygon from the fs-base-genericairports package dug a trench across one of the runways at our airport. We tried all kinds of solutions with the polygon tool, without success, until my colleague Dominic tried the simple rectangle tool and the hollow disappeared! If it can help you...! @+

    Time to Retire

    Thank you Jon for all you have done for the FS community. You are one of the few creators whose achievements are useful, even essential, for all developers. Several of my airports have a bit of Scruffyduck in them! Take advantage of your family because, in the end, that's the most important...

    Can a satellite image be used as an 'overlay' to place objects

    To have the precise direction of the runways of my airports in Nunavik (northern Quebec) I used the Map Enhancement mod in ArcGis display. Use with caution though...

    MSFS Polygon Falloff

    My polygons all have a different priority and a falloff of more than 0. Also I went to see other polygons from the same scenery and they have a regular falloff. Everything in my scenery's XML file looks just as regular.

    MSFS Third party aircraft texture issue

    Hello, A colleague of mine did textures of an airline for Asobo's Kingair. If I load this model to pilot it the textures display perfectly without any problem. On the other hand, if I use this model as a static SimObject in a scenery, the texture of the company disappears if I am more than 100...

    MSFS Exclude water to unmask island

    Good morning, I used the exclude water tool to "take out of the water" the islands off CYZV Sept-Iles. It lasted until the last FS20 update. The bug now is that I see all the islands except one full and one half. Yet I used the same tools for all the islands: Water exclude water. I recompiled...

    MSFS RNAV approach

    @FoxtrotScenery OK for LISMA that was why my procedure was incomplete. Yes I know that the procedures must be inside the <Airport> tags because they are directly linked to it. If I do not put their coordonates in the approach code the waypoints do not appear on the map. It may depend on how...
