• 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.

    Ground polygon preferred workflow?

    Hi, I think creating ground polygon within Gmax is not very difficult but it takes some time. In my opinion, the only thing disturbing is the background image that we have to calibrate accurately. For example, if Gmax can show us a GoogleEarth background (like SbuilderX or FSXPlanner)...

    Photo-real ground textures in gmax for fs2004

    Hi, Is there any quicker method to do like this ? I mean if it's possible to let the polys (in Gmax) above the ground ? And during the export, all the element will be at 0 level ? Sorry for the pattern of my sentence, I hope you understood

    Photo-real ground textures in gmax for fs2004

    Hi Leo ! I suggest you to mix between polygons and loft things to draw the taxiways, the appron, the yellow lines etc.

    Creating A Ground Texture

    Hi, You have to use Photoshop (for instance). You open your high resolution image and then you add some marks (on X and Y axis) And finally, you select each part.. Edit You can also check this thread : http://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/showthread.php?t=11656

    Import DXF from Autocad

    The reason I used Autocad is that I want to write a text in Arabic (Latin language works very well in Gmax but not Arabic and Chinese) So, I wrote in Autocad and then I import in Gmax (but the scene stay empty) I think the 3ds export option disappears in Autocad 2007.. Any advise would...
