• 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 Is it not possible to rename a replacement airport?

    I don't think the above ( altering lokPak files) would work at all. Here's what we can do: There are very few identifiers in the default MSFS (or the real world), that start with Q. And the xml code for airports can have up to 5 characters. So If I want to rename Lake Lawn Airport as...

    Hurghada Airport | HRG | HEGN

    I'm closing this thread. Constructive criticism is part of the FS development process. And the Showroom here certainly exposes the developer to that criticism. But when a addon reaches it's conclusion, any further commentary needs to go to the OP's website or distribution website, or can be...

    I cant exclude some object in MSFS

    I think they are like the windmill generators and can't be excluded.

    How to relocate stock airport

    The above will allow you to place everything (runways, aprons,...) but it retains the old ICAO and the old map location. A different solution is to use a new ICAO identifier (such as FNMO1) and close the old airport. This will display correctly in the sim's maps, but you lose the original ICAO...

    How to relocate stock airport

    airportTestRadius="5000.00000000000000" isn't enough to add the new airport from the reference location of the old airport I think. Try 20000.0 and see if you can relocate the airport.

    MSFS Triggering Hangar door animation in SimObject by distance?

    I don't own that scenery, but if it is a long animation, I would suspect it is a script.

    MSFS Color Matching aerial imagery in MSFS

    Here's a compilation using the bing tiles imagery, with no alteration from ImageMagick or any paint program: Notice how unsaturated it is, and too blue. I'm guessing that the streaming tiles we get are pre-processed at the server. They are darkened and made bluer to account for the sim"s...

    MSFS Color Matching aerial imagery in MSFS

    One of the more difficult aspects of bringing aerial imagery into MSFS is matching the default color. If, and when we have seasons, this will be even harder to accomplish. I recently went through the aerial imagery tutorial by Nool Aerosystems. The toolkit is great, and it makes a tedious...

    MSFS -Everything you know about upcoming Flight Sim from Microsoft-

    I'm closing the thread before it goes downhill any further. It would be best to take complaints about MSFS to Asobo and Microsoft. This is a developer forum and in-depth commentary about the sim belongs somewhere else. forums.flightsimulator.com

    Missing CEMENT texture

    Hard to see in the picture, but CEMENTDIRT01 is a material, not a texture. The texture it refers to is ASO_CEMENT01_ALBEDO.TIF.DDS

    MSFS Totally Bricked

    You might try an administrator commandline. then enter sfc /scannow to verify and repair any windows issues, I was forced to do that myself today in an unrelated issue. It did repair some files. and the issue I had resolved.

    Testing Alternate Package Compilation

    Thanks Didier for your help. The Force Console at the end of the command is a good catch. The reason I persist with this is: I received some feedback that this does not work for everyone, and the indication was that the MS Store version could not use this. Good to see that it works. I think...

    Testing Alternate Package Compilation

    When you check the Packages folder, the package is built? If so, Can you delete _PackageInt and Packages folders, start up the sim and go to an airport, and then run the command to see if it will build the package? That would confirm we can build packages outside the sim, while it is running.
