• 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.

    Effects Switches and Variables

    Actually Jessy, this is the FS Wishlist forum threads and I don't believe it was specific to scenery. Also the suggestion for these things also affects ground scenery design as well, and was really about FX and XML code which does have an effect on scenery design also... :wave:

    Developers Question - Concept Possible?

    Traffic Tools only compiles data from a proprietary format. There's been a lot of development work on the AI side of things... Traffic Tools only decompiles the data contained in the BGL not the header information and such that shows the extent of the traffic scenery file... In...

    Developers Question - Concept Possible?

    Okay, BGLXML said it was an invalid XML file... Time to chase up a few leads like the author of BGLXML and the AI Traffic Serparation authors, and see what we can come up with :) The challenge will be finding a decompiler that can decompile the traffic.bgl successfully... I'm guessing it's...

    Developers Question - Concept Possible?

    Okay, here's the preliminary results.... Okay better than I expected... It is listed as a BGL with an airports and facilities directory... Will tryn crunching it through BGL2XML now as I suspect it will read the data and assume it's just a regular scenery file...

    Developers Question - Concept Possible?

    :rotfl: one work "hack" :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: Actually it shouldn't be too different from a dynamic scenery BGL... Am going to check now... Sorry harrowing couple of days, a co-worker (one of our news anchors) was killed in a car accident two days ago, and tonight my tyre/tire blew...

    Developers Question - Concept Possible?

    Nah traffic tools won't let you do it... I think I need to decompile my traffic BGL to XML code and take it from there. Traffic tools only operates on flight plan algorithms and they don't have any code in their stuff for date based scenery calls... Let me look up my traffic.bgl real quick...

    Developers Question - Concept Possible?

    Yeah, this is kind of a different step, it's along the lines of what is done with scenery BGL's... Wish I wasn't at work so I could run some tests... Dean

    Developers Question - Concept Possible?

    I'm posting this here as well as I know scenery designers have experience with this stuff, in terms of date coding scenery... I've been developing freeware stuff for FS since the days of FS4.0 and I've been working on a retro AI flight schedule... It led me to a couple of thoughts and I'm...

    Effects Switches and Variables

    On Aircraft it would be really helpful to be able to assign new switches for effects... Currently I'm having to code light switches to turn on certain effects files for aircraft... It would be great to have an option to XML code a switch with a title name etc so we can have customizable...

    Library Creator XML GUID problems

    Hey Arno, I'm wondering are you using the MS GUID generator tool in your process? Apparently this should create completely unique GUID's... I'm not sure the validity of the MS SDK claims but it might be worth looking into ;)

    Watermasking Problems...

    Thanks to Dick, aka Rhumbaflappy, I've been able to track down the problem with some experiments... If you have a photo scenery master that has blocks of water, you need to make sure both the value of the RGB and A are all at 0,0,0 for both the texture and the master tile.... From what I...
