• 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.

    Sunken Objects

    Hi, The ground has its own slope, if your hangar on the left side is above the ground but the ground rises to the right then the end of the hangar will be below ground level. You can try to use terraforming to create a "flatten" or flatten all the area occupied by you airport.

    FS2004 Exporting from Blender to FS2004

    Sorry, I have understand that your first model was made under Gmax but if you begin under Blender - with Blender create your plane - export to OBJ - import your OBJ under Gmax then create animations (animationt + tags) - compile and export to *.X [EDIT] Wavefront Import for Gmax => Wavefront...

    FS2004 Exporting from Blender to FS2004

    Hi, I have read with attention yours posts ... Why do you want to use Blender? In order to use some functionalities that Gmax doesn't ? Well, and if you export from Gmax to Obj (you can find a plugin for this operation) work with Blender to use "decimate" and others functions and after that...

    P3D aircraft convert to MSFS no compatible

    Hi, The P3D model isn't identical to FSX model and P3D's MDL aren't reconized by MSFS. So if you want to use it, you should compile the MDL with the FSX SDK and then try to use MSLegacy Importer.

    MSFS Asobo C152 Dev Console Errors

    The first part of yours errors log are on the interior.xml and on the 3D model. I don't think that you can correct theses ones. The 3D model is unfinished by ASOBO and a lot of work need to be done but I don't think that it will be done in the future.

    MSFS Asobo C152 Dev Console Errors

    MSFS is a wonderful software ... not finish but wonderful ! Don't be afraid, Prepar3D has also the same error when you activate the log system and sometimes, the number of errors overload the log. My advise: try to correct the C152 ;). PS: As I work on my Cessna 150 K Tibush, I am interested...

    Animation export to glTF?

    First, I think you speak of FS9 (FS2004) MDLs Second, the main difference between FSX and FS2004 was that on FSX it was possible to create smaller objects without the compiler doing any concatenation between two nearby vertex. So if you take a aircraft with a great number of polygones and small...

    Hi, I don't understand exactly. My situation: I have a lot of models made under GMax with MDLs (3 Cessna, 2 Menestrel HN-433 and HN-700, one NC-858S, one AlphaJet). My actual problem is to port all these stuffs under Blender and also remake all animations in order to compile to glTF. If I...

    MSFS Polygons are no longer working correctly! (MSFS 2020 SDK 0.7)

    Hello, One bemol anyway, with the old SDKs I had made exclusions and yesterday I had to recompile these exclusions ... they are still operational so I think it comes from the way the XML file is written and not from the compiler. A workaround would be to use an old XML file format created for...

    Blender Wrapping stencils

    Hello, If you find Subtance Painter too much, you should use ArmorPaint which is very nice (18€ as donation ware) and it should give you all the features that you need. You can also find a export preset for this software in the "Resources section". In order to learn ArmorPaint, I use a useful...

    Hi Javier, In 2018/2019 I followed step by step all the videos you made retracing the creation of this plane under 3DS and I took advantage of it week after week to improve. Such a toy must render very beautifully with the MSFS rendering engine. Bravo for the work done both for XPlane and for...

    MSFS Asobo boo-boo

    exactly what unfortunately I had feared during the Alpha step. Quality (management of source code quality) isn't their strong point for a 10-year project.
