• 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

    Hello, I'm facing a strange ADE behavior. I deleted a scenery object within an airport I designed. The object apparently has gone, but when I compile the airport again, upload it to P3D, the object is still there. I went back to ADE and listed all the objects and the one I deleted is not there...

    Hello, I have spent a significant amount of time creating a photorealistic airport (LIMN). I premise that the terrain around the airport is not flat (same altitude). At south end of the airport I have an altitude of 541.5 feet at north end an altitude of 589.5 feet. Either altitudes have been...

    Night texture on 3D text fill

    Hello, I have designed 3d text on a building made through SU and then managed through MCX to create MDL. This text in MCX has a texture color (so MCX detects it). Is there a way to create a night version (basically text filled in white color) through MCX or with other tools? Thanks a lot!

    Hello, this post is addressed mainly to the wonderful ADE team. I saw that ADE runways have a couple of high intensity/brightness strobes aside their end. I would like to get the BGL and textures of those kind of strobes to place on a building. May you help me? Thanks a lot.

    Hello, is there a way to view the results of the design without loading the airport every time in the flight simulator? Any chance to add to ADE a view from side (3d view) and not only top-down (2d view)? Thanks.
