• 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.

    P3D v4 AddAttribute & AddAttributeIfInside conundrum :S

    Hi, I'm finally jumping into trying to use Scenproc :) Here's my script so far. Now I freely admit I copied the base script from the manual because I haven't a clue where to start, and I'm trying to reverse engineer it in my head to understand it and make it work for me. I'm first just...

    Orbx unified landclass borked SBuilderX?

    Ive just tried to do a very basic flatten and exclude over a QMID11 area to replace with a custom hydropoly. (Something I've not done since before Orbx did their unified lclookup thingamajig.) Now with SBX I'm getting an error message saying "This type is not described in terrain.cfg!" when I...

    Does anyone know if it is possible to specify altitude limits at waypoints in sim xml flightplans please? I've tried creating a flightplan using Aivlasoft EFB and then saving it as a .pln file. It loads ok and shows perfect lateral accuracy but contains no altitude data. When that unamended...

    Discovering GUIDS for existing annotations..?

    If I load a PR scenery containing existing annotations, how can I find out which GUID relates to each poly? when I click on a building and select it should something indicate the GUID? This is prob just down to my lack of understanding so sorry if its a dumb question !

    Can QGIS be used to convert ECW to Geotiff?

    Probably the title says it all... Ive read that many people areusing globalmapper for projects , but am a little discouraged by its $500 price tag for me as a hobbyist :( Just wondering if anyone knows whether QGIS can effect a similar outcome in terms of pre processing ECW files for eventual...

    Updating stock navdata: Waypoints, airways and routes?

    After immersing myself in airspace scenery for a little while I’ve become increasingly annoyed by the fact that my default navdata (ie waypoints and airways) is plain wrong and doesn’t match up in any appreciable way to real life now. PlanG is brilliant, but only displays what is in the stock...
