• 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.

    FSX Blender vs. 3ds

    Blender has entered my modeling thoughts now for quite some time. My slight peeve would be learning the new GUI interface and the lack of roll-outs! Better choices, so little free time to venture outside a comfort zone. I enjoyed this topic.

    To those that have helped me along in the hobby

    To all those that have helped me in my times of struggle, as I learn my way. My gaining your knowledge and wisdom in this realm of flight simulation has helped me more than you know. You know who you are, as I have met but a few in my path. Those who could see my potential in wanting to learn, I...

    UVW Mapping in Gmax – tutorial series

    Tom, this is long awaited. You know my frustrations. Thanks for taking the time to put this together. I'm hopeful your tutorial will get me over a hurdle I've been behind for quite some time. "The grass is always greener on the other side". I can't wait to cut the rug! Thanks again :cool:

    Blender to FSX Toolset

    Blender is a program I've heard lots about as a step-forward from Gmax. To also add, I like the price! I've been modeling with Gmax for over a year now with lots more to learn. This is also (or will be) compatible with Prepar3D v2? Keep up the great work!! I'll be watching this topic :D

    FSXA Rotor Blade Animation, tagging & visibility problems

    I deleted everything but the main rotors. I'm going to start over and do this in stages, rather than all at once like I was attempting. If I still have issues this go round, I'll take stills or make a video of the issues and report here. Thanks George!

    FSXA Creating blinking lights?

    A question if I may. My working with effects files is at an early stage. In my experiments I have created a single-sided poly as an attach point, and placed accordingly. I have attached the effect as the left nav light. This does the trick, but my brain is thinking outside the box. Is it best...

    FSXA Config file assistance needed, Contact points,static comp, etc

    It never ceases to amaze that someone can come up with a solution. What with the amount of knowledge there is in the shadows of forums that aid someone like myself, my frustrations from doing it blindly set me to whits fuse and a flash point. I'm glad I posted the video for a nice visual of...

    Update 11-26-2013 I'm having trouble understanding your meaning to your troubles, as I am fairly new to modeling myself. I will help where I can if you can be a little more descriptive on the trouble. Still picking at it trying to bring it to life. Building new parts and overall scaling...
