• 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 Parking Codes

    Allright, interesting. Maybe Asobo did fix this in one of the latest update, which would be a good move.

    MSFS Parking Codes

    Some clarifications with parking radii and parking codes: - the radius setting foesn't count the 6 extra meter area for vehicules around the actual stand. So a 18-m stand will accomodate 18-m radius models or less, and the total radius accounted by the sim is 24 meters (meaning two neighboring...

    Constant CTD in Dev Mode

    I had a CTD yesterday trying the new car park feature in the scenery editor. Most annoying to me is that MSFS freezes most of the time when trying to load my airport project. Couldn't make any progress since yesterday.

    MSFS Replacement textures are pink from a distance

    Sorry for asking, but... after creating your customs materials based upon Asobo ones, did you update all your aprons with your materials (or did you edit your xml files with your materials GUIDs) ?

    MSFS Replacement textures are pink from a distance

    To clarify: - in dev mode airport editor, select the asobo/default materiel you're interested in. Look for the path and texture names in the material inspector. - go find those textures (usually 1 albedo and 1 comp file) in the official folder, open them in an image editor (this in the most...

    Buildings invisible - "Unknown" in object list

    "Unknown" means that the GUID called in your scenery xml does not match anything in the object libraries (including your ModelLib). Generally happens when re-exporting a model with a GUID change. Try to keep the same GUIDs when updating and re-exporting a model.

    MSFS Replacement textures are pink from a distance

    We had that problem with our OIIE release, we had no other choice than copying default apron textures into our airport materiallib. For example asobo TileConcrete06 material is duplicated as oiie-TileConcrete06, with corresponding textures (albedo and comp) found in Official folders re-exported...

    MSFS Lines across scenery

    I have the same on apron objects, from a certain height (can't be seen lower or higher), and it's clearly oriented to north. It must be a kind of terrain grid we're not supposed to see. Not sure it has anything to do with a custom aerial as it doesn't appear on the ground but on aprons.

    MSFS The Parking stand radii: "they are not what they seem"

    Well I don't know that GoodtoBadMatchRate as I never relied on Parked Aircrafts to bring life to airport (I set this slider at 0). Having a GA_medium or GA_small parking doesn't change anything about how the sim is allocating it. The only things taken in account are: - AC Model radius (e.g...

    MSFS List the things wrong with Sim Update v5

    I can see this too... very annoying. After a couple of hours in dev mode with SU5, here are some other annoyances/bugs: - MSFS hangs after building a package (need to open the task manager to terminate it) - Asobo/MS default materials not displayed on aprons - Scenery objects randomly sliding on...

    Broken resizing of square aprons - any workarounds?

    At scale 1.0, a square apron is 30m x 30m. Any texture will fill the whole apron object, so you have to scale first you apron object to your need. For a ground sign that is 7 meter wide I would first design my required texture (make it square), then place a square apron at scale 7/30 = 0.233...

    MSFS ILS/LOC Navaids Stop Working in MSFS

    These parameters should never be used when designing local scenery, as they indeed deleted everything globaly in the content that is loaded before your scene. They are intended for Navigraph or any other global nav supplier that would replace all stock items with theirs.

    You allways can use google earth viewer Ruler tool. I assumed that PIS is Pisa VOR, so I found it and started a line from it: I zoomed out and extended that line until the point which is looked at. Don't forget the MAGVAR which is 1°E or +1° at LIRP. True = Mag + Magvar, so I used 164°True...
