• 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.

    Prepar3d V6 connectivity from ADE

    I have ADE 01.79 and Prepar3d V6. If I try to connect to Prepar3d V6 I get a could not connect FSUIPC_ERR_WRONGFS Incorrect version of Flight Sim error. Has anyone gotten connecting to P3DV6 from ADE to work and if so how?

    Steep sided islands

    I am using SbuilderX 3.15 with Prepar3d 4.5 although I am sure this issue applies to older versions and other tools. It appears flatten polygons (which includes water terrain) flatten an area outside the area of the polygon. This makes having small steep sided islands impossible, the water...

    Ground polys and seasons

    I am using P3Dv4 and ADE1.76.6715. Does ADE-GP support custom seasonal variations of ground polys (a set of bmps with _sp, _wi, _fa, etc. plus _lm for night)? I see no mention of that in the ADE-GP manual. If it does do I just put my set of textures (all of the seasons plus LM) into the...

    Library object boundary in ADE

    I have ADE 1.70. I created a model in GMax and put it in an object library BGL and imported into ADE. I then found that I had mistakenly had the dimensions wrong (far too big) and went back to GMax and fixed it. It now has the correct dimensions in P3D but still has the (wrong) huge size in...

    Cannot get custom editor to enable OK

    Looks like it was a problem with that version. I installed 1.70 from scratch and it is working.

    Cannot get custom editor to enable OK

    I am trying to do some custom lines. I can create the line and it goes to the line (poly) feature editor. I set the width and main texture and make sure a layer is specfied and OK does not enable. I tried filling out other fields and OK still does not enable. I am using the following...

    I was able to delete it via the raw data view. Thanks

    Stuck new version of stock NDB

    I was working on YCKN. The NDB moved and changed its frequency. I created an NDB at the new location with the correct frequency and ADE then declared the new NDB to be a stock NDB which is not editable. I cannot remove it or change it. After reading posts in this forum what I initially did...

    FSXA Disappearing Fence

    I found a workaround (with some side effects). As best I can tell the problem seems to be a terrain altitude z-order (front to back ordering) issue. FSX thinks that something (presumably higher than the fence base) beyond the fence is blocking the view of the fence. Ordinary flattens do not...

    ATC Taxi control with parallel runways

    This is taking a case where an airport has 2 parallel runways one of which was active in the default scenery and enabling the second. The taxiways were copied from the original scenery and work fine as long as there is not a plane on the takeoff runway.

    ATC Taxi control with parallel runways

    What I was trying to accomplish is to find a way for the landing aircraft to get off of the arrival runway while a departing aircraft was using the departure runway without having an arriving aircraft crossing an in-use departure runway (tends to get disconcerting when I start my takeoff roll...

    ATC Taxi control with parallel runways

    Consider the following scenerio in FSX: An airport with 2 runways on the same side of the terminal. The nearest is the departure runway, the farthest the arrival (set by the appropriate runway enables). Arriving airplanes need to cross the departure runway to get to the terminal. If aircraft...

    Restoring control to ATC

    I tried single and multiple waypoints on the runway and adding a waypoint to the hold short line on the taxyway and the airplane lands fine but always goes into sleep mode with the current flight plan at the last waypoint. Any suggestions? (I am using ALTITUDE_IS_AGL and ON_GROUND and...

    Restoring control to ATC

    I am working on an "enhancement" to the ATC in FSX. I would like to be able to take control of an AI aircraft, set waypoints for where I want it to go, and then at some point return control to FSX ATC. I can take control and send the aircraft where I want. There does not seem to be a way of...

    Getting AI Waypoints

    Never mind, found following in Simconnect Documentation for SIMCONNECT_DATA_WAYPOINT structure: This structure can only be used to set data, it cannot be used as part of a data request. So the question then becomes, is there any way of getting the next waypoint. I tried GPS WP NEXT LAT...

    Getting AI Waypoints

    Has anyone been able to get waypoints via AI WAYPOINT LIST? I have not been able to get it to return anything. I am using the following: hr_init = SimConnect_AddToDataDefinition(m_hSimConnect, AIRCRAFT_GROUP, "AI WAYPOINT LIST", NULL, SIMCONNECT_DATATYPE_WAYPOINT); I also tried leaving...

    Lots of gates cause hang

    I am using a enhanced version of ScenegenX. I was able to get things working. I believe it was related to the gate I was in in the saved session I was using to check my work.

    Lots of gates cause hang

    I am working on a small GA airport with lots of parking areas and traffic. When I get over 20 or so parking areas plus 3 gates FSX hangs and then crashes about 2 seconds after it starts running. I have tried redoing the airport from scratch with just a single runway, the parking areas and...

    Stuck Taxiways

    Further update: I was able to find the aircraft on the TrafficTools map. It apparently crashed about 7 nm from the airport. Apparently there is a bug in FSX which caused it to somehow be locking down a taxiway 7 miles away (it showed up as taxi out in Traffic Explorer). I suspect the airplane...

    Stuck Taxiways

    Addendum, there was a phantom aircraft. It showed up on traffic explorer but not the map. Killing it unstuck the taxiways. I will have to investigate if there is a problem with that airplanes model.
