• 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.

    MSFS Library objects- how to know what is standard

    What about having the ability to import 3rd party objects into a "common" library? There are a number of "mini-libraries" over at flightsim.to, and I tend to grab them as they come up.so that I have them available when a mod needs them. Only works for flightsim.to, but that's where a LOT of the...

    FSXA Windows 7 problem?

    Thanks, Jon, I must have snuck onto the server just BEFORE it went down (to download 1.40.07), and reran it just AFTER it went down. That explains all.

    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.

    FS9 airport in FSX...problems

    Hi Armowings, I've viewed with interest the conversation going on here, and am rapidly coming to the conclusion that there is a basic incompatibility between FS9 and FSX sceneries that no-one (here at least) has been able to find the key to overcoming. I understand your frustration, but I...

    Are we wasing our time?

    I don't think that "open sourcing" the code is our best outcome. I do think that if some third party games developer could be convinced to take on the challenge, and if MS can be brought to see the value of letting their IP go, we could see a way forward for the sim. In the mean time, as I...

    Are we wasing our time?

    And Mike, when you do catch up with FSX, it's going to have a veritable truck load of add ons, because now for the first time in years we have perfect stability in the product. Developers can go ahead in the knowledge that it's not going to all change in 18 months time, and the size of the FS9...

    Why Are There Airports w/o Parking in FSX?

    Another reason may be that some airports aren't sufficiently organised to identify actual parking spots, and I do include some with regular air services in that. If there are no regular, designated parking spots, it would be difficult for MS to actually model parking spots there with any...

    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...

    Adding to ADE Object Library?

    Yeah, That had me fooled for a while, too. There is a button lurking at the top of the Tools -> Library Object Manager, that looks like a header. It's called "Tools", and if you hover over it, you'll find that it's actually a short menu, one item of which allows you to add objects. Select a...

    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

    Ah, good. I thought I was missing something somewhere. That'll make my parking more realistic! Thanks

    Parking Index

    I'm using 1.37.05, and when I select edit, either in the list or direct, I get a properties window that nowhere contains the Index number. The one in the image attached has an index value of 119 in the list view, and there isn't any clickable area other than the fields that you can see. So...

    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...
