• 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.

    MSFS Can ADE open msfs third party airports ?

    Hey, I’ve got two questions; one: is it possible to open third party airport .bgl’s with ADE to edit and save some features ? two: if answer to question one is yes, can we edit any third party airports terraform borders with ADE ? thanks for any feeds.

    Editing a terraform area, is it possible ?

    Hey guys, Some third party airports come with a rather carelessly designed terraform area that breaks the photogrammetry coverage around the airport turning it into 2D map data only. Is there any way to disable or at least edit such terraform area borders on SDK or perhaps on ADE ? Thanks for...

    a difficult polygon case

    In the first place I tried directly with excludePolygon as well but there are a few handcrafted buildings in the polygon and the result showed those buildings sadly. so i wanted to get rid of them as well and chose excludeALL and then those aitegenerated buildings popped out, OMS or MS. do you...

    a difficult polygon case

    I did it accordingly by creating an exclude rectangle that covers all the points of the polygon with excludeallobjects option on as it also had custom buildings on it but I still have default autogenerated buildings popping out form behind. I don’t know if they are OSM or MS or whatever. The...

    a difficult polygon case

    the odds are that the designer of the airport might have rendered multiple polygons for different areas and might have compiled them into a single poly.bgl ( i can see in the scenery folder there is a poly.bgl ) do you think i would be able to see if the underlying polygon is a single body or...

    a difficult polygon case

    thanx for the highly informative reply. it is of great value to me. i’ll try to remove the underlying polygon with the method you suggest. may I also just partially overwrite and remove it ? I mean only in the surrounding areas of the airport and not all over the entire airport ground ?

    a difficult polygon case

    Hi, Let me start by describing the case : - there is a third party airport add-on with a polygon that also killed photogrammetry around the airport. - the airport also created custom buildings around it. - is it possible to create a polygon on top of it, that would cover the area around the...

    MSFS how to configure modelConverterX for msfs

    thanks for the kind reply. the use of it would be that, especially for AI traffic models, it might have provided the user to visually see what he has and hasn’t as a list all at once. However, I still remember there was a similar - a very similar - one with the same menu items that did the...

    how to remove objects from a .bgl

    I’m now considering a similar exclude for the area around KLGB Long Beach Airport, that with the presence of low quality buildings spoil the scenery’s transmission into a much better looking photogrammetry. The northern exclude area looks doable yet the southern part is in a triangular shape...
