• 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.

    Adding waypoints to ADE

    Hello all, I've created a tutorial on how to easily and quickly add waypoints to Airport Design Editor to be used for creating approaches. It's the first video tutorial I've made, so bear with me with all the "uh's and u'ms" http://precisionfsn.com/developers/

    FS2004 Very low frame rates

    Ostensibly, more 3d objects means your computer will have to work harder to render them. Your computer, instead of compromising the number or quality of objects, is lowering the frame rates to stay within the computing capability of your machine.

    Half baked idea

    It's a website allowing people to advertise prepar3d or FSX approaches or other navigation related addons for either freeware or payware. The difference from other sites like flightsim or avsim being that this one will make it easy to post frequently updated databases corresponding with the AIRAC.

    Half baked idea

    It's a calculated risk. I've already put hours and effort into making several design projects, only to have them outmoded, so I kinda know what if feels like. My focus however is on frequently updated software. Something which nobody else seems to offer support for. I also might add that I...

    Website of photos of old radios?

    You may not find much on the internet, but you often can find antique avionics still installed and used in older general aviation aircraft. (I have some experience in this regard.) Alternatively if you can find an aviation museum nearby; they might have an avionics display case.

    Half baked idea

    Here's what I've been thinking: I was browsing through the SDK for Prepar3d, and saw the approaches section allows for the creation of SIDS and STARS. That's great; it's good to see they're expanding the simulator's capability. It still doesn't solve the problem of how to update the...

    update the FSX static navigation data

    Well, you can at least try it. The waypoint update is very easy to uninstall. (And it's free)

    update the FSX static navigation data

    I was aware of the problems involved in doing this project. (I did do research and testing). What I did was completely remove stock navaid data, and replace it with updated information from public domain sources. I also included the navaid's associated waypoints so any change in VOR location...

    update the FSX static navigation data

    I did! (At least for waypoint/fixes and for navaids) you can find it here http://precisionfsn.com/

    Night textures and seasonal textures?

    I don't understand that answer either, It's like he didn't read the question. Anyway, I assume your using FSX. Using the resample tool, the SDK says you can specify LightMap under the Variation parameter, but it is used as the lightmap during all months.

    GPX to FS XML python script

    Hello all, I wrote a simple python script that parses GPX files from navaid.com that contain navaid and waypoint/fix data into the Flight Simulator X Navaid XML format, which can be compiled into BGL. The reason I'm giving up on the navaid project is someone else came up and did it better than I...

    MS Flight to be released end of February

    I'm personally looking to switch to X-plane or Prepar3d. A Hawaii-only simulator isn't in my line of development.

    Logo request

    You should probably come up with something like that on your own. This is what I'd do. If you live in Colorado, take pictures of one of the airports you developed (real world) with a background of mountains or wilderness etc. Then open that file in Photoshop or GIMP or PSP etc. Crop the picture...

    Projects

    For me, It has to be something I want work on. It's a lot of time and effort that goes into a project, and I want to be able to enjoy it. :) I also take into account what demand there is for the project; if it is something that has already been done well, then I'll move onto something else.

    FSX Extra 300L Project

    Because, it's cool!! On a more serious note, the impact on frame-rates may be a little much. You must have some detailed plans for the aircraft!

    This may be true; however I would prefer to give the benefit of the doubt.

    FSX Developer for Dummies

    As far as I know, There is little documentation on the internal functioning of Flight Simulator. A lot of third party utilities have to test by trial and error internal FSX functioning to see how it works. The best place to start is the Software Development Kit, which gives a lot information on...

    Installer pain

    I use INNO scripting language to create installers. It's actually not that hard since there is this 3rd party GUI for the compiler called InnoIDE.

    Lightpole in FSX?

    I was hoping there might be some effect that I could attach to the geometry of a light pole object in gmax.

    Lightpole in FSX?

    Hello, I'm wondering how to create a lightpole/spotlight/streetlight for use in FSX. I'm mainly wanting to illuminate the airport parking lot, and the ramp next to the gates. I've seen older threads discussing how to do this for fs9, but it's a little confusing. (I have GMAX with FSX gamepack)...
