    P3D v4 ADE & Navigraph Charts

    Hi fellow flight simmers & developers! I've been using Airport Design Editor (ADE) to update my airports in FSX, and now P3D4 because of too many CTD's with FSX. Since then, I've been updating the gate and jetway names at some of the airports, since the names in the Simulator are usually not...

    P3D v4 PMDG 737 Repaint

    Hi Tom, Sorry for the delayed reply. So IIUC, I should go to the PMDG Operations program and find a similar livery to what I'm trying to make. After that, I just need to copy the texture into the paint program I'm using, and make the desired changes. Am I on the right track here? Will I...

    P3D v4 PMDG 737 Repaint

    Hi all, I'm trying to make a livery for the PMDG 737 from scratch. However, I've looked at several YouTube videos, and all of them "assume" that the user has designed a livery already. I haven't done this, as I want to make a fictional livery. Is there any type of manual for how to do this...

    P3D v4 Can't find bglcomp & ship2vec

    Ok. It works now! I made a scenery folder on my desktop, and told P3d to look there. Out of curiosity, should I uninstall P3d and put it in a folder other than ProgramFiles to avoid this issue? Thanks again, Kevin Davis

    P3D v4 Can't find bglcomp & ship2vec

    Hi Doug, If I understand your previous post correctly, it seems like the issue I'm experiencing is not the location of the tools, but the location of the exported BGL file. Is this correct? Regards, Kevin Davis

    P3D v4 Can't find bglcomp & ship2vec

    Hi Doug, I verified that I have the latest version of P3d along with the SDK - and I do. I tried re-installing the SDK to see if that would fix the ADE issue, but it didn't. I am still getting the message in ADE saying that it can't compile the airport. Let me know if you need any further...

    P3D v4 Can't find bglcomp & ship2vec

    To whom it may concern, I made the switch from FSX: SE to P3d v4. I tried using ADE to get rename gates and update the frequencies, but when I compiled the file, it said that it could not find the files needed in the SDK (bglcomp & ship2vec). When I installed P3d, it also installed the SDK...

    Helipad for 3d Warehouse Model

    Hi Gary, Since I seem to have properly created the guide point, I think we can proceed with the next step you specified in your above post. Regards, Kevin Davis

    Helipad for 3d Warehouse Model

    Hi Gary, I circled the point where I made the elevation. It is just above the heliport. Here is the screenshot. Have a great day! Regards, Kevin Davis

    Helipad for 3d Warehouse Model

    Hi Gary, Thanks for the clarification about the "Hack" term. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't going to get into any trouble. I tried drawing a guide point from the SW corner of the building, and got this result (pictured in screenshot). I actually have the P3D SDK since Microsoft didn't...

    Helipad for 3d Warehouse Model

    Hi Gary, I haven't kept up on my E-Mails lately - sorry! I experimented with the Tape Measure tool, and was able to draw a line that stayed when I released the mouse and pressed "Enter." Since I've been working on this stage of the project, I have never been able to get that to work. It's not...

    Helipad for 3d Warehouse Model

    Hi Gary, I have no idea why this procedure is not working. For clarification, what version of Sketchup are you using? I'm using 8. I did some experimenting yesterday, and I found a feature where you right click and it "Separates Components." One "Component" was the general part of the roof...
