• 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.

    FSXA Windows 7 problem?

    I'm running Windows 7 RC, and have a repeatable "can't connect" problem. Attached is an image plus the log. Firewall problem? It worked fine until I loaded 1.40.07. I've also loaded 1.40.09, and still this error every time I load ADE.

    New taxiway designators

    Probably a silly question, or something on the "to do" list, but is there a way to create an entirely new taxiway. Not the physical taxiway, but the designator for the taxiway. I'm working on YMEN (still) and there is a taxiway "T", but I can find no way to add a "T" to the taxiway designator...

    V1.37 - No buttons!

    Spot the missing elements. The result of using 120 DPI instead of 96 DPI for my default font in Windows. A nuisance, as I have an incredibly huge screen (by my standards) with an impossible 1920 X 1200 resolution, and 96 DPI is a tad small for me on the 24" screen, so if this can't be...

    Runway extensions

    Hi Guys, I've had enough of YMML for the time being, and have decided to move on to YMEN. Essendon traditionally has had two runways, but in the last couple of years, part of the N/S runway has been closed, and big yellow chevrons have been used to mark the portion of the runway that is no...

    Parking Index

    I'm not sure whether this is a suggestion, a misunderstanding, a plea for instructions, or what, so I'll just lead off. In AFCAD 1 & 2, the index number associated with a parking spot was important in the way that parking was taken up. I'm assuming that it's still important, for a couple of...

    V1.37 Saving

    Properly, ADE doesn't allow the user to save a version that hasn't been changed after the last save. Unfortunately, ADE doesn't appear to recognise a change to lock aprons or lock runways as a change. So when these are toggled, you must also move a piece of scenery a little bit before you can...

    V1.37 unexpected termination

    Hi, This (or similar) has happened to me a couple of times in the last few days. Granted, I'm working on a well OTT YMML layout, but ... At the time of the crash, I'd selected a 'vertex" on a piece of Vehicle link, and had just clicked the mouse button to move it slightly, and it all...

    V1.37 - List Management

    I'm busy populating YMML with light poles (wish I had some that actually light up at night) and I've come across an editing problem. When I place the light poles, I can edit them, move them, turn them around, delete them, whatever. Saved and closed down, and when i came back to the scenery, I...

    I'm revising YMML to be as accurate as I can make it, and, of course, I'm using a lot of AI originally designed for FS9. I found that I was seeing some unexpected sights at my gates, such as 747's parking in spaces designed for 737's, and lots of planes parking where sense says that they...

    Modifying multiple links

    Hi, I am modifying YMML from the stock version using ADE. Unfortunately, while most of YMML's taxiways and aprons are concrete, MS has done the whole airport in asphalt. Is there any easy way to select a number of links in one go, to edit them all with one command?

    How do I identify the tools I'm after?

    In the Wiki, there is the ability to select topics, in several ways. Under FSX, there is a subcategory called "Scenery Design", which isn't a sub-category at all - it takes you to the complete set of scenery design tools for all versions of FS. Under Scenery design, there is a subcategory...
