• 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.

SBUILDERX313.ZIP contains 2 files:

- ReadMe.txt, the file that you are reading

- Generic Buildings
- Extrusion Bridges

I would like to express my gratitude to Luis Féliz-Tirado without whom many additions in this present edition were not possible. His tutorials, his carefully testing, his positive criticism and even is help in putting together many files of this program, are most appreciated. SBuilderX also benefited from the support of many FSX experts. Here is an incomplete list: João Hespanha, Richard Ludowise, José Lobo, Holger Sandmann, Scott Gridley, Luis Feliz Tirado, Scott Smart, Dick Boley, Ian Gallacher, Ross Casey, Lance Tucker, Mischa, and Arno Gerretsen. I am also grateful to Manfred Moldenhauer for Scasm, Pete Dowson for FSUIPC, Paul Henty for FsuipcClient, Jon Masterson for jmBglLib, and to the authors of the “Shapelib” software. Finally, I would like to thank the Microsoft FSX Aces Team for making FSX.
