• 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.

    FSX Ground poly disappearing below ground

    I created the ground poly in Blender and exported it via ModelConverterX Ground Polygon Wizard. At certain areas of the airport, the ground polys dip below the ground and disappear- I'm assuming this is because of the curvature. What I've tried: -I've tried cutting and grouping the polygons...

    Austin Sass Blender 2.8 Script Error (solved)

    I'm trying to run a script for Blender in order to speed up modelling but the script was for previous versions of blender. Specifically, the line "bpy.context.scene.objects.active" (bold) is supposedly no longer used by Blender. I don't quite understand what I should replace that line with in...

    FSX Reduce flickering of ground polys

    Is there any way of optimizing custom ground polys (especially taxiway lines etc) so that when viewed from afar/at an angle the flicker/aliasing is reduced/less noticeable? My own ground poly seem to flicker more easily than default and ADE ground polys. Is this because the textures are too...

    ADE FSX to P3Dv5

    Is it possible to compile ADE projects for P3Dv5 when you only have FSX? When someone tried out our FSX scenery in P3Dv5, he saw default buildings on top of our current scenery which is not ideal.

    Cannot Generate Detailed Footprint (Solved)

    Noticed that the latest development version of ADE no longer can generate detailed footprints for custom library objects even when I have detailed footprints enabled (can still see detailed footprints for default library objects). I don't know if this is something wrong with the program or maybe...

    Blender not exporting taxiway lines

    For some reason Blender is not exporting taxiway lines but still can export my base "runway." The only difference between the runway and the taxiway line is that the runway was made from a plane while the taxiway line was made from a beveled curve that has been reconverted into a mesh. Is there...

    Screwed Up Bevel

    Noob mistake: Make sure that when beveling, you scale the plane that you're using for the taxiway line while in "edit mode" rather than "object mode." If you put it in object mode and scale it, beveling it will yield a "loft" that is too wide.

    Failed initialization of Blender

    I'm new to Blender and I'm just getting used to it so forgive me if this question has an obvious solution or I'm providing too little information. I recently downloaded the latest version of Blender and the latest compatible FSX/P3D Toolset. I followed the tutorial...

    Airport Terrain Design

    If you were to want to design terrain for an airport (for example, certain roadways that go above and below the ground level), what method would you recommend? I know that in ADE the result wasn't quite what I was looking for since the slopes were too gradual (despite assigning altitudes to...

    VC Engine Sounds

    I don't have much experience with aircraft so with that in mind... When I'm in the VC of the PMDG 737 and a few other addons, the engine sounds no longer can be heard when facing forwards. The only way I can get them back is if I turn my camera view around facing backwards. I made sure that my...

    Resample.exe not working

    For some reason when I try to drag the INF file over the resample.exe a black window opens suddenly and then closes. No bgl is created. I've checked that every source file and directory is correct. I've also tried using some of the resample examples. I've also moved the folder to the desktop and...

    Textures don't show up

    I have two textures for a static jetway made in sketchup. I made sure that everything was converted into the right format and size but when I run FSX only one of the textures show up. The other is not read. I imported the problematic bgl that's read by the sim into model converter x and it shows...

    Editing Map Properties

    Just started using SBuilderX, if we wanted to go back and re-edit the map properties after importing a map from the disk, how would we do that? I can't find any button or anything that allows it so if you made a mistake on the first try you can't go back to fix it.

    Burke Lakefront Airport

    Started work on this scenery a very long time ago but diverted efforts to other scenery once I found out how much work it takes to finish scenery. Anyways, recently updated the terminal in preparation for some sort of Vatsim event. See if you can catch the Easter Eggs (pay attention to the TV...

    Scaling vs Size

    I've created an image background and I want to resize it. If I use the "scale" option under "transform," I can scale it to a certain size but the "size" under object data doesn't change. The opposite is true when I edit the "size" option. Which one does FSX use to tell how large the object is...

    I've been working on CVG for some time, right now it's off into the interior modelling of the terminal. This is part of the CLE-CVG-YYC trio that I've been designing (Each one for when I lose motivation for doing the other). Beta testing available at https://clefsdevelopment.weebly.com but this...

    Invisible AI

    Again another problem with my AI (I have no experience in this field) :( For some reason when the aircraft is parked and inactive (nav lights have turned off), the majority of the textures disappear except for whatever the alpha channel did not cut out in the texture sheet. This is for TFS and...

    Texture Differences

    I have no experience in aircraft in FSX so with that in mind: Why are some of my AI aircraft's textures smothering together when looked at far away/from an angle (behavior similar to bgl scenery objects) while others don't and instead just flicker? Hopefully you can see what's happening in the...
