• 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.

    [SBX 3.15 V2] Library Object Manager List

    I found something now. When SBX writes the secondary text file (category name, with the scenery object, guids and dimensions), it stops processing and truncates the last line written. This throws an internal error (no error message) and the category entry in the objects.txt file is not...

    [SBX 3.15 V2] Library Object Manager List

    Hi altogether, I have a puzzling phenomena here. I can read library objects into new categories in the library object manager, and they stay there as long as the program is running. However, when I restart the application everything is gone. I noticed that SBX does not save the changes in...

    Landclass / large areas / gis data?

    Sorry, I am confused as to how the compiler knows which color is indexed to a specific landclass number. The SDK does not seem to have any informations on that. Maybe I am thinking to complicated :)

    Landclass / large areas / gis data?

    Thanks for the replies. Arno, this is exactly the point I am struggling with :) Dick, I have to look into that, this seems like an answer to one of my questions. Cheers, Mark

    Landclass / large areas / gis data?

    I've been pondering on that for quite a time and don't come up with the right answer, maybe someone could give me a hint. How can you make a custom landclass for a large area, like Southeast Asia, for example? Using SBX for that is very cumbersome. And, is it possible to feed real GISdata from...

    SBX - Hole/Water polys become inverted on BGL export?

    Hi, I exported the file in the top post to ESRI shape (actually two exports - lines and polys) and imported them into GlobalMapper. The line file was good, but the poly file was a mess. I'm still trying to sort out what gives. I think Dick is right with his assessment. I also had problems...

    FSX Add Map SbuilderX Purchased satellite image

    Gary, a bit OT, but what folllows has long been on my list. Your explanation above is one of the best posts on the subject I have seen so far! When I got stuck in my scenery endeavours in the past and googled for advice, I very often found the solution in well written posts by a gentleman...

    The coffee mug is very appropriate :-) I'll dig into this, thanks for the links!

    ATTN SBuilderX 64 and Win10 Workaround

    Gary, as far as I can gather it is the newest version from maptools.org. I had a conversation with Dick (rhumbaflappy) where he noted that the error most likely lies not within the shapelib.dll, since Arno uses the same version and it works well under Win10. However, what bewilders me a...

    ATTN SBuilderX 64 and Win10 Workaround

    Hi, I guess it is well known in the meanwhile that SBX 64 does not work correctly when you run it under Win 10 due to an incompatibility with the shapelib.dll. SBX 64 can't compile CVX data, throwing an error. Tom Stovall (member here) and I had the idea to run it in a virtual Win7-64 machine...

    [FSX / P3D] Custom Radio Chatter / sound files

    Hi, I searched up and down the net but found nothing and thought I might as well ask here. So I am out for an application that can feed custom audio files into the sim by the means of the user switching to a pre-defined COM channel. I somehow seem to remember that there was a small freeware...

    MCX Batch Process: change GUID + friendly name

    Hi Arno, thanks for the answer, I have not noticed the override option, my bad. The prefix / suffix step would be great! Cheers, Mark

    MCX Batch Process: change GUID + friendly name

    Hi, When I use the function "change GUID" in the batch processing mode, I see that the GUID has not changed even though the process runs through without errors. Am I missing something? I also noticed that one can not simply manually change the GUID of a model in MCX - in the object...
