• 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.

    P3D v4 when buying a plane

    Depends. First off, P3D4 is a 64-bit application whereas FSX is 32-bit. A lot of "back-end" stuff changed between FSX and P3D4 so not everything can be guaranteed to work between the two sims. In particular, the panel gauges are most likely not going to work in P3D4. As others have said, you...

    Stolen models are sold , this is what this world is now may you didn't want to know.

    I remember having a conversation about this topic a while back. Unfortunately there will always be people without a conscience about these kinds of things. Looks like they play dirty. I almost wish ddos'ing websites wasn't illegal when it comes to issues like this.

    I'm working on scenery... (2021)

    I've just started work on KGGG East Texas Regional Airport for P3D4-5. Wanted to do this airport for a while as this is where I did my initial flight training, but after almost 10 years I finally feel confident to take it on.

    P3D v4 [Released] Chesapeake Regional [KCPK] for P3Dv4+

    Released! It's already up on the Avsim library, and should be up on the Flightsim library soon. I learned a lot while working on this project. This airport builds upon and finetunes a lot of the techniques I employed on my previous projects. In particular Taxiway/runway lights no longer glare...

    P3D v5 LOD and Runway/Taxiway lights

    Others please correct me if I'm wrong, but the LOD's and Reverse-mipping are two separate methods you can use to achieve the desired effect. In the LOD method, you create sequentially larger models for the runway/taxiway lights so that when viewed from further away (i.e. LODs become lower), the...

    P3D v4 [Released] Chesapeake Regional [KCPK] for P3Dv4+

    It's been a while, so that's my prompt to share some updated pictures. Work on this project had to be put on the backburner at the end of 2020 as I was undertaking more and more aircraft maintenance work. Now that I have more time on my hands, I've picked the project back up, and admittedly, I...

    P3D v4 [Released] Chesapeake Regional [KCPK] for P3Dv4+

    A bit more progress on the main terminal building tonight.

    P3D v4 [Released] Chesapeake Regional [KCPK] for P3Dv4+

    Prepar3D v4, possibly v5, but I don't own v5 so I'm unable to test on that platform.

    P3D v4 [Released] Chesapeake Regional [KCPK] for P3Dv4+

    A few months ago, while I was still working on the Hampton Roads project (KPVG), I dropped by another local airport - Chesapeake Regional (KCPK) - and snapped a bunch of photos with my cell phone. If anyone saw a weird guy in sweatpants wandering around the airport property with flip flops, that...

    P3D v4 [Released] Hampton Roads Executive Airport [Norfolk/Chesapeake, VA] (KPVG)

    Update [9 December 2020] After a months-long hiatus from the project, I finally decided to finish what I have started and completed the project. I have uploaded submissions to both flightsim.com and avsim.com libraries. It may not be the most impressive P3D scenery addon out there but for me...

    MSFS Apron Surface Area Material

    I'm having similar issues. I *can* create an apron, but when I try to modify the material, the system simply removes the material, highlights the apron in red (error) and doesn't let me specify any other material at all.

    MSFS [WIP] FS2020 support

    Arno, I don't know how in the world you do all of this ... but you and the work you put out are absolutely mind-boggling. Thanks for everything you've contributed to the FS community over the years - I am confident when I say that MCX and its ridiculously powerful capabilities is the only reason...

    MSFS AI models

    I can only assume it may indeed be a licensing issue, but then again, I'm at a loss as to why they couldn't simply make a lo-poly, but high-fidelity model of the Beech 36 Bonanza (instead of that ... bastardized version of the Bonanza (?)). I definitely see that the turboprop single is a PC-12...

    Aeroproyecto begins a new Cessna Stationair for FSX/P3D

    Finally, hope for a decent rendition of the pre-hiatus Cessna 206 series! I used to turn wrenches on highly-modified U206G's for a nonprofit organization a few years back and loved these birds.
