• 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.

    FSXA Scenery Object Bank

    Okay, so I place the object with XML, it shows up, no issue there. I adjust the bank value and it does NOTHING to the model. Is this an FS bug or is there something else I can do to override it so the model is actually "laying on its side"? Thanks!

    FSXA Spotlights / Ground Lights

    Does anyone here know how to make a light which will illuminate the ground in FSX? The FS2004 methods with the taxi light do not work nor does any other tutorial that I have found including the BRIGHT properties. So, is there a tutorial for it somewhere or can someone walk me through it...

    FSXA Night Textures

    Tell me what I'm doing wrong here... First, let me preface, day textures are good. 1. I created a _LM.BMP for the model. 2. I unlocked ambient. 3. I selected my _LM texture and confirmed it showed up in GMAX. 4. I checked the material navigator list, it is there. 5. Exported as FS...

    FSX Effects Headings

    Has anyone else experienced a problem when placing multiple instances of the same effect into a single BGL that they seem to ignore the individual headings and just take the heading from a single instance? In short, what I have is 3 police cars which I'm placing a strobe light effect for the...

    Landing Base / Platform

    Both in MDL format conversion and trying to do it with SCASM API conversion, I can't seem to get a helipad landing platform to work...the aircraft just falls through. The SCASM source was correct and it worked that way, but seeing as I have a bunch of these to place, any thoughts on how to...

    FSX to FS9 Textures Messed Up

    Hi all- First, Arno, thanks so much for this program. It has some great potential to developers! The problem I'm having is related to textures. I can convert an FSX model to use in FS9 without issue, but the problem is related to FSX using a DDS texture. I converted the texture to a...

    FSX Jetway Scaling

    Has anyone managed to scale the jetways in FSX and still get them to work properly? I tried scaling them back to .75 and it also "scaled" the connection point of the aircraft to 75% of where it should have been.

    FSX Terminal Objects

    Hmm, so has anyone unlocked the "secret" of FSX terminals yet? I found this as a terminal for a small regional airport here in Wisconsin (KCWA) and was hoping to borrow it and make a sister in La Crosse (KLSE) to replace the stupid hangar they put where the terminal is supposed to be...

    Helicopter Airport Beacon

    Is it just me, or is the helo beacon in FSX completely screwed up? It's not like a translucent light effect...it appears to be more or less 3 opaque cones. Anyone else see this issue?

    One-Way Runway

    Did I read correctly that someone (Jim) got one-way runways working properly? :) Just tick the boxes and it works, or did we have to "trick" the system?

    FSX Pushback Trucks - Tug Unable to Move

    Hi all- Ran into an issue today with Wilco's Airbus Volume 2. The pushback trucks were not working on the 340s and you would get the message: "This aircraft can not be moved by the tug". I traced the issue back to the 3rd main landing gear (center). Apparently, the sim thought that was...
