• 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 Google Earth Decoder Optimization Tools (GEDOT) - Blender Addon

    Hello, I found an interesting tool to get 3D buildings from Google Earth. It works to build 3D landscapes for MSFS2020. I'm guessing if somebody knows a similar approach to use with Prepar3d (v4). Please let me have your inputs. Thanks! Sergio

    P3D v4 Can VC-External view look direction/azimuth be read? SOLVED

    Hello, I have a similar topic/question/issue. I'm using P3D v4.5 and I currently assigned my Joystick Hat Switch to VIEW PAN. It works as expected, but I would like that once I should release the Hat Switch to its normal zero position the view would be centered and not left where I pointed. BTW...

    P3D v4 Cockpit swapping mirrors

    Hello. I would like to make the swapping cockpit mirrors of a fighter jet reflecting the backward view. Currently they swap but their image is fictional. I saw the mod made by Dino Cattaneo on his beautiful F-14. Do you think I can simply follow Dino's approach (adding canera in the...

    MSFS Converting a MSFS2020 plane to P3Dv4

    Hello, us there any chance to convert an aircraft made to be used with MSFS2020 to Prepar3d v4? Pardon me if I missed a topic already discussed in other forums. Thanks!

    P3D v4 FS Thrust vs Altitude calculations Version 2 doubt + table 1524

    Roy, about table 1524. 1) It is Mach vs Scalar on thrust for max AB, where thrust is the value in engine section of aircraft.cfg. Is it correct? 2) as example, first 3 rows 0.0, 1.58 0.2, 3.54 0.8, 7.89 does it mean that in the interval 0<Mach<0.2 the scalar is 1.58 and in the interval...

    P3D v4 FS Thrust vs Altitude calculations Version 2 doubt + table 1524

    Roy, I use Mach. @ S.L. (clean, no wind, max AB thrust) manual reports Mach 1.15. Model reaches 0.9. I'm thinking to add new data rows to 1524 (within its 10 rows limit) to increase the resolution in the range up to Mach 1.15 Sergio

    P3D v4 FS Thrust vs Altitude calculations Version 2 doubt + table 1524

    Roy, take-off ground distance @ correct lift off speed is less than manual data (S.L., no wind, clean configuration, take-off flaps). Thrust appears correct. Can drag be corrected in the speed range 0 to 190 knots? If so, how? Sergio

    P3D v4 FS Thrust vs Altitude calculations Version 2 doubt + table 1524

    Roy, I did some homeworks and the aircraft performance is now coherent with the real one at high altitudes and Mach from 0.9 to max. Now, I would like to correct take-off performance which is a bit over performing WHILE is a bit under performing at SL at his max compatible speed. Obviously both...

    P3D v4 AirWizEd

    So, in my understanding (since I haven't the SW yet to test by myself), with AirWizEd I can set somewhere the flight conditions in terms of throttle and altitude and read the matching speed? Is it correct? Sergio

    P3D v4 AirWizEd

    Roy, now I have a better understanding of the differences between the two softwares. They are "complementary". 1) what di you mean with FSXA? 2) to use them for P3D, there is something to setup in both the SW? 3) can they both (or one of the two) simulate speed vs altitude performance of the...

    P3D v4 AirWizEd

    Interesting discussion, thanks. I share the point about documentation. Often a software can have awesome features that are very poorly explained. It seems that something remains in the "pen" of the designer.... So much time spent in creating powerful tools that risks to be wasted because the end...

    Roy, as usual you are a great support. I wrote several times to Jerry, but I didn't get reply. Maybe he is off for holidays. I'll keep you informed. Thanks! Sergio

    Thanks for the input. I hoped it was sold separately since I have already Airwrench 111.

    P3D v4 FS Thrust vs Altitude calculations Version 2 doubt + table 1524

    Man, to me you are a generous genius! My comment was not at all a criticism, but a double checking for me to understand better. I'll stay on P3Dv4 for a long time. MSFS has a long way to go for a debugging completion and I don't perceive any value adding compared with the old-fashion FS. I'll...

    Roy, before leaving you in peace..... You wrote: 1502 for single stage engines just makes N1 equal to the N2 input. Do you mean stage=shaft ? In a turbojet, single shaft (= multiple compressor stages run the same multiple turbine stages RPM, no matter their number) N1 should be equal to N2...

    P3D v4 FS Thrust vs Altitude calculations Version 2 doubt + table 1524

    I have AirWrench 111 but, since I'm currently travelling, I have no clue if this version can do what you're suggesting and what are the differences with the latest version. I was told it is a great application and I'll try to get as much as I'll be able from it. Unfortunately, AirWrench has an...
