• 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 Interested in Airport Design - Where Do I Begin

    Hi Folks, Look at PSP instead of PS - been using it since the Jasc days - and it has just about everything PS has - at a reasonable price - without the monthly extortion fee... Regards, Scott

    Starting point for Paintkit

    Hi Vance, While I’ve used PSP since the Jasc days and I do model - I’ve never used FSDS... Yeah - FSDS must have some functions inside the modeling software that allows you to select parts or faces - then “map” them to a specific piece of texture real estate... The more sophisticated modeling...

    What is LUA? Does it work in FSX also?

    Hi Bill, Yeah - it's pretty handy for the end user as it gives us control of buttons and switches in the cockpit - that were unavailable by other means... You can also program macros to complete multiple tasks as well... For me - there are few things more annoying than having to drop my HOTAS...

    Spokane International Airport (KGEG)

    Hi Folks, Yeah - I believe ORBX bought Bonner’s Ferry from Jim Robinson (who’s been MIA for a very long time - hope all is well with him) - then Alex finished it for ORBX... I haven’t followed this project - but if a substantial amount of the work was complete - and the author was interested -...

    P3D v4 P3D V4 shading issue

    Hi Folks, Wow - the side by side comparison is dramatic... I always thought the visuals in P3D were suppose to improve on FSX ? Looking at the images - it appears that there is specular shine present in FSX VC that’s not apparent in the P3D VC... Given that it’s the same model is there...

    Airport Ground Navigation - The search for eternal peace

    Hi... One other option is Alex’s “Little NavMap” if you have a laptop or second machine handy (otherwise you need to toggle between apps) - it has a full moving map feature - it reads the actual scenery database file from your FS setup - and if you zoom in close enough - shows the equivalent of...

    Airport Ground Navigation - The search for eternal peace

    Hi... Not sure if this suits your needs - if you happen to live in and fly in North America - there’s a great FREE tablet EFB app called “Fltplan GO”... It’s a real world EFB for Win/Apple/Android tablets that works with P3D/FSX/XP - that’s the only FREE source of georeferenced approach plates...

    Bahamas Photoreal

    Hi Bernardo, Every new shot you post - while seeming impossible - improves on the last - what a complete work of art... The Bahamas - from a RW pilots perspective - is the one destination EVERY East Coast US pilot aspires to visit... Put a group of East Coast Pilots together and at some point...

    P3D v4 Basic Tutorial to Create New Mesh ?

    Hi Gary, Thanks as always - yeah - been improving an area around KIWI - Wiscasset ME - just for my own amusement - and some of the hills seem a bit off when comparing to the photo terrain I put down - I realize I could work it with flattens - but since moving to P3D I've used nothing but...

    P3D v4 Basic Tutorial to Create New Mesh ?

    Hi Folks, I've messed with DEM over the years - is there a basic tutorial around somewhere on the steps involved to create a mesh in P3D ? I found only one video - in English - but that gentleman used Global Mapper for file processing and I'm not $500.00 worth of interested in this process -...
