    P3D v4 Weapons

    Hi, I switched to P3D from FSX SE a couple months ago. However, one of the things I was interested in was the combat capability in aircraft such as Vertical Reality Simulations' Tac Pack. Unfortunately, before researching the addon for P3D Professional, I bought the F18 and Tac Pack products...

    XP11 Frequency Update

    Hi all, I'm using XP11 along with P3d, but I haven't been able to figure out how to update comm frequencies in XP11 to match their real-world counterparts Do I use WED to do this? For P3d & FSX, I accomplished this with ADE. Any help you can provide is appreciated. Regards, Kevin Davis .

    P3D v4 ADE & Navigraph Charts

    Hi fellow flight simmers & developers! I've been using Airport Design Editor (ADE) to update my airports in FSX, and now P3D4 because of too many CTD's with FSX. Since then, I've been updating the gate and jetway names at some of the airports, since the names in the Simulator are usually not...

    P3D v4 PMDG 737 Repaint

    Hi all, I'm trying to make a livery for the PMDG 737 from scratch. However, I've looked at several YouTube videos, and all of them "assume" that the user has designed a livery already. I haven't done this, as I want to make a fictional livery. Is there any type of manual for how to do this...

    P3D v4 Can't find bglcomp & ship2vec

    To whom it may concern, I made the switch from FSX: SE to P3d v4. I tried using ADE to get rename gates and update the frequencies, but when I compiled the file, it said that it could not find the files needed in the SDK (bglcomp & ship2vec). When I installed P3d, it also installed the SDK...

    Helipad for 3d Warehouse Model

    Hello, Over the past few days, I created a thread "MDL File Issue," where I talked about my project involving converting a hospital model into a landable helipad for FSX. In that thread, I was able to get some of my questions answered. However, now I need a little help with some additional...

    FSX:SE MDL File Issue

    To whom it may concern, I downloaded a realistic model to use for one of the airports I have been working on. I placed it in ADE, but it is not showing up in FSX after I compile it. What could be the problem here? The original model was an OBJ, but I converted it to an MDL file in MCX. I...

    FSX:SE DSF file to FSX?

    All, I own both X-Plane and FSX: SE. However, I came across a scenery package on X-Plane's site that is highly realistic and ten times better than any scenery I've found for FSX - Payware or Freeware. In the Zip folder that came with the X-Plane scenery package, there is a subfolder called...

    X-Plane to FSX?

    Fellow Flight Sim users, I downloaded a highly realistic scenery package for XP11 that I've been using for a couple days now. On a second computer, however, I have FSX installed, which doesn't have anything close to what I downloaded for XP11. With that being said, how could I install the...

    FSX:SE Custom Parking Spot Names?

    Hey folks, I'm working on editing existing airports in ADE now, and I have been looking at various charts to see what to name the parking spots. For example, my home airport has a ramp called, "Atlantic Aviation,," which is the name of the FBO. The same thing applies to larger airports that...

    ATC Issues w/ Custom Airport

    Hi all, I created a custom airport in ADE a few weeks ago, but ATC is acting strange. First, the ATC Screen (~) just shows, "Choose an option for Ground. I named it Davis Ground in ADE. Also, when Ground gives me taxi instructions, all it says is the runway. "Taxi to runway 16 using...

    FSX:SE Weird ADE Issue

    Hi all, I just completed a test run of the new airport I made, and compiled it into FSX. However, when I put my aircraft at the airport, I'm positioned in a giant hole in the ground. I have attached the ADEX4 file to this message. Please advise, Kevin Davis

    Taxiway Designators

    Hi all, I've been working on creating a fictional airport - my house actually! I have all of the parking links and taxi paths set up, but I can't seem to find a way to name the designators (A, B, C, etc). Every time I try to edit the properties of the link, the "Designator" field is always...

    FSX Crash to desktop

    Hey all, I changed the compile path in ADE to FSX's Addon Scenery folder to make it load properly in my simulator. However, now my simulator crashes to the desktop immediately after I try to load one of the airports I made changes to along with the one I created from scratch. I experimented...

    FSX:SE Google Sketchup (Major Problem)!

    Hey all, As I've mentioned, I've been working on creating an airport that is technically a hospital (WS03 in Milwaukee), over the last few weeks. On the ADE and MCX end, everything is working fantastically, for which I thank all of you that have provided insight! Now, I'm working on creating...

    Hey fellow Flight Sim Developers! I just created my first project in ADE, which is actually a hospital with only a heliport on the roof. I was able to create the airport in ADE and compile it successfully into FSX: SE, but the hospital building I added from ADE's stock buildings section...

    FSX:SE ATC Modifications

    Hi Everyone, I made some modifications to my home airport so the ATC Frequencies would coincide with those in the real-world, since FSX is out of date. For example, in my home airport, KMKE, the simulator has the Tower frequency listed as 119.1. This is no longer accurate - it is now 124.575...
