• 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.

    FFG script and animations

    Hi, Have anyone here had any luck bringing animations over? Objects seem to work fine, but no animations? The readme says that animations are unreliable, but just wanted to check. I tested with 3D Studio Max 2021. Rotorhub

    3ds Max® software - for indie users

    https://makeanything.autodesk.com/3dsmax-indie It seems that the indie license is now available in most countries. $265.00 a year is way better. But it is hard to compete with $0, or whatever you would donate to use Blender. If I was certain that the available GMAX to 3DS MAX scripts would...

    How to use "dummy" VC switch to trigger XML gauge variables?

    How can I trigger variables in a hidden xml gauge by using this VC "dummy" switch code? Adding code in the callback section in the modeldef works fine, but triggering the xml gauge not so much. Either the switch moves on/off/on/off (flooding?), or nothing at all. As an audiable test I tried to...

    Visibility tags corrupts modeldef?

    I might be very tired, but is there a reason for these to corrupt my modeldef. They are visibility tags for lamps. When added, it will not load. If I remove them, all good? <PartInfo> <Name>Oxy_Port_connect</Name> <!-- Amber light if oxy not connected --> <Visibility> <Parameter> <Code>...

    Visibility tag and timer

    I am trying to get a light to work correctly, and it kind of works. Even if it is wrong. The light is on, as long as the switch is hold, but i does not take in account if the fuel valve is shut or not. Ideally this light should shut after 2 seconds, even if the switch is hold. The manual says...

    Custom transform orientation and animation

    In GMAX/3DS Max it is very easy to change the pivot point of an animated object, such as a flap. The flap often has its local orientation in multiple angles. Blender is very different... After reading the forum I understand that the suggested method in Blender, is to create a dummy object to...

    Custom visibility tags for warning ligths

    I have a few lights in the overhead that I want to light up, when the switch is flipped on. My simple approach as a novice, is to use visibility conditions. The active bulb is slighty larger, has a brighter texture and a L_texture assigned to it and lits up. Deice works well Ignition lights...
