• 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.

    Is W11 run FS2004 ?

    I have 3 machines with GW3 in their own hard drives, which is what I've recommended to Marc for his new machine. Fingers crossed, however............!!

    Is W11 run FS2004 ?

    He plans to use a stick like I do, otherwise it's W11 & my GW3..........that was a trifle wonky in 10 so it'll be 11 now. He wants to fly my Beaulieu at a local show, like I did with my Ibsley at the yearly Ibsley event, via a projector onto a large screen. Terry

    Is W11 run FS2004 ?

    Bon jour......I put Golden Wings into a friend's laptop he said was a gaming machine. Having installed it I found it wasn't. It had W10. I gathered from flightsim.com that 10 has niggles & then learn 11 would be better. Said friend is now willing to spend on a simming machine & I suggested...

    Is W11 run FS2004 ?

    Good morrow GGB, I have this just in: 'Sadly, Microsoft has stopped selling Windows 7 and modern hardware has no Windows 7 support natively available, so our hardware would be nonfunctioning on this operating system, it is a huge shame.' Does this makes sense ? They will fit W10 or 11 but I...

    Hello Garry, It took me 10 mins to get my Papa Westray VTTP once the little grey cells burst into life. If you tell me how to go about it I'll use your method !!

    Hi Gary, No I didn't try installing SBuilderX. I've just arrived here & have just looked at the zip you sent....looks like old times are back. I produced 30 airfields like this. I'll let you know when I've used sbuilder with the P.W.files you sent. It will be a doddle & as I said like old...

    Gary, I've had sbuilder for 10yrs or longer. I'm not familiar with Scott Gridley's Tutorial. I looked at it & see it dated 2005. I clicked Luis' google maps for SBuilder web page link & got a screen of code. BUT, this is how it used to be with a default view of somewhere in the USA...

    This will be a quickie - neither airports. It'll be a brand new effort when the friend tells me the details........... Your walk through sounds interesting...... News just in = I'm asked for a grassy base for Papa Westray for Golden Wing 3 (FS9).

    Gary, When I made my first airfield, a kind chap, one Stevo at Airfield Constructors Group, made & sent me a Sbuilder tutorial. With this kind gesture it's been downhill ever since ! This is the using Ade section: ADE NOTE, the background image you used in Sbuilder can also be used in ADE...

    ==So, IIUC, you noticed that rhumbamaps quit working ~8 or 9 Months ago ? When I first got sbuilder the link to obtain a satellite picture was http://www.zbluesoftware.com/fsxplanner/maps.cfm. When that stopped working it was changed to the rumbamaps link I sent. I used that 9 or 12 months...

    Maps for Sbuilder

    Gary......I used that link 8/9 months ago. I'm really more interested in using sbuilder again than Ade because Ade will work from a bgl. Sbuilder will use saved files but making a new grass is now impossible. Are the fees to use the satellite pics high or difficult to get ? Right now I'm...

    I apologise for not replying until now but I've been away with no internet. I'll keep what I'm going to ask simple: Last year I used this link http://www.ludowise.x10host.com/gmaps/rhumbamaps.html but the window where a satellite view usually appeared was blank. My ade used this same bmp...

    I have FS2004 & last year used sbuilder/ade to make some Shetland airports. I'm sure I used http://www.ludowise.x10host.com/gmaps/rhumbamaps.html but today the satellite view area is blank & doesn't fill. Can someone help me with an alternative mapping facility or current options ? Thank...

    Converting dds to bmp for FS9.

    My cursor hovered over a texture & I realised it was 2048 x 2048. I reduced them both to 1024 x 1024 but that didn't work. I've sent Arno a message.......
