• 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 default weather

    Just a heads up: FSRealWX will keep on working after 30 days. It will just be a limited version. Very similar to FSUIPC. If you pay before the 30 day time limit, you get all the "bells and whistles". ALL the features are available and functional. If you don't, many of the advanced features and...

    P3D v4 VTOL function by Flap Setting (no gauge)

    Also, if you notice, there is a heading in the plane's aircraft.cfg that is quite useful for what you're trying to accomplish. The heading is [Flaps.n] where n is the number indicating just which flap the information is for. Like [flaps.1] could be the ones on the inside of the wing (closest to...

    P3D v4 What would cause Airplane to boot up into P3D V4 with mixture off?

    A thought, that often clears up trouble like this: Exit the sim first. Go into your sims .cfg file, such as FSX.cfg for example, find the heading [USERINTERFACE] . Under that is the line SITUATION= .Simply delete any and everything after the equals sign (=) . Save the file off, and restart the...

    So long Bombardier jets..............

    They use the white wire so the Tech Reps can tell the techs "I know what the problem is. It's the white wire!" I kid you not. That's what the Westinghouse Tech Rep told us when I was in the Corps. He didn't like it either, though. Not a one of them was labeled in any way, either. Not in...

    LVar - have I got this code right? (SOLVED )

    Hi, Deano, I don't know a bloody thing about working with .mdl files and MCX, although I am obviously going to have to learn sooner or later. Having said that, I've been working with Jimi and the guys at the FSDT FSX Blue Angels team on their awesome F/A-18C, for FSX. I've been working on adding...

    FSXA MD Helicopters MD500D/MD500E

    Since the loss of the Hovercontrol site, a lot of models have been lost. There were a number of FS9 MD500's that had been modded to FSx, several of them by Peter Nemeth himself. Including the gauges. I don't know if any are still available out there but they may be. Try checking with Mr...

    A great bunch of info on making an aircraft sling/hoist capable : Sling/Hoist loads Sldo, just a HU: AICarriers is quite capable of creating loads for your aircraft to pick up, carry, place elsewhere, etc. I find it much easier to use than the "Saved Flight" scenario. Just my opinion. You can...

    FSX:SE Sound Effects Through Smoke Effects?

    Just as a quick example, check lines 12-17 in the following [Smoke] section, utilized in the FSXBA F/A-18. Thought it might be of interest as an example of using the [Smoke] portion of the aircraft.cfg to call sounds out: [SMOKESYSTEM] smoke.0= -14.00, 0.00, 0.00, fx_dummy smoke.1=...

    P3D v4 Technique for testing/checking textures while painting newer aircraft

    There's a small problem when using the "Reload_User_Aircraft" key command, which, BTW, I use frequent;y: You MUST have ALL forms of AI turned off. Ships, Ground vehicles, aircraft, you name it, it's got to be off. If you don't do that, there's an increasing probability that it won't update one...
