• 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.

    SODE V1.6.3 Open-Beta

    Hi, For the next SODE release, I need some testing done because there were substantial changes internally in the jetway control logic. These changes have enabled new features such as automatic docking/un-docking for user-aircraft and multi-jetway support for AI aircraft. Automatic...

    The corrected 'aircraft.cfg' Collection Thread

    I want to open this sticky thread to gather the corrected aircraft.cfg exit positions for the most commonly used add-on aircraft. Introduction Jetway misalignment has always to do with incorrect exit position in the aircraft.cfg. SODE uses this exit position for the calculation. SODE's...

    SODE Visual Docking Guidance Systems

    Besides improving the jetway control system, I'm currently also coding a new feature: Visual Docking Guidance Systems (VDGS). I have integrated VDGS and jetway operations into a new menu called "Stand operations". Similar to GSX, you choose a parking position and then you can select from...

    SODE Jetway Control

    Hi, Here is a quick video showing the current development state of the jetway control system. A 'thank you' goes to Tic for providing his static jetway model for the development! The user can assign a jetway to a desired aircraft door. The door positions are extracted from the aircraft.cfg...

    I will post all issues concerning the openflight export function here: Texture uvw mappings "beyond the edge" is incorrect in the openflight model Double sided textures (as defined in the FSX material parameters) seems not to be converted into the openflight model What I mean with beyond the...

    OpenFlight: inverted polygons

    Hey Arno! I did some initial test to convert fsx mdl files to the openflight format. Exporting works fine, but when I look at the flt file in the osgviewer (openscenegraph-viewer), the polygon seems to be flipped. Also, the building in my case is mirrored/flipped. Coordinate system problem...

    Mdl RIFF chunks VISC, VISS

    Hi guys, First off, I have no experience in hacking around in mdl files. :rolleyes: But as a scenery designer, I don't want to believe that we can't add conditions to the fsx mdl structure. So I did some reading about the format and stumbled on two RIFF identifiers: VISC and VISS, which are...

    Refresh Scenery Library

    Hi Is there an event to refresh/rehash the scenery library? I know there is one for reloading the current scenery, but that doesn't include the updating of the library. Jeff

    Seams between Custom Photo Scenery Tiles

    Hi I'm doing some photoreal scenery. The imagery is split up into LOD8 tiles. After resampling, everything looks fine in TmfViewer, no seams at the LOD8 borders. Whereas in FSX, they are visible! I have no clue why this happens. I am sure that the pixel coordinates and dimension are correct...

    Extract bmp out of bgl

    Hi all, Does anyone know how to extract the Bitmap out of the bgl file generated by resample.exe? Or can we force resample.exe to generate separate texture tiles as in previous versions? Cheers, Jeff

    additional Variables...

    Hi Arno, I was playing around with fsInterrogate and the FSUIPC SDK some time ago and tested the visibility variable. Are you planning to add a visibility variable for ActiGate? Fs seems to switch on Approach Lighting if vis is below 5nm and the runway lighting if vis is below 3nm. It would...

    XML placed objects and framerate: An interesting fact...

    Hi all, I am currently working with 2 other guys on a freeware Zurich Airport LSZH. As the one in charge of the ground-scenery, I was struggling with the framerate-friendliest placement method for small but numerous objects like the green inpavement-twy-centerline-lighting. So I created a...

    Hi, I'm building a SafeDock System right now and ran into a problem yesterday. As in Arno's Docking System, I used a STOPDISTANCE constant. I set "STOPDISTANCE EQU 20". Now, some lines later in the code, after the particular Aircraft Recognition checks, I want to change the value of the...
