• 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.

    P3D v4 Ground Poly Offset

    Gents, Converting some current work from FSX to P3D. Using the same Afcad file and Ground poly coordinates, I am for some reason noticing that in P3D the poly seems to be offset. This happens regardless of whether the "Optimize Reference Point" box is checked or not. Everything appears to be...

    Tiling Issues

    When downloading tiles within SBuilderX, I keep getting this awful tiling problem. This occurs with Google Satellite and Virtual Earth satellite. I have tried 3.13, 3.14, and various combinations of Run-as-Admin and compatibility mode, all to no avail. Anyone seen this before?

    Volumetric Grass Conversion

    Hi Arno, I am currently using MCX to export my 3D grass through the Ground Poly Wizard as specified in this thread and the tutorial Tic made (which I can't seem to locate). What I have noticed is that when I import my .X or .MDL file that has been exported from 3DSMax, the Ground Poly Wizard...

    Autogen Exclusion?

    Hello again; After exporting my custom terrain to FSX, I have noticed that it seems to have removed autogen in the area within the blend outline. I have only used sculpt nodes and had AB_Flatten selected in the top bar when compiling. Am I doing something wrong or is this another issue? Note...

    Corrupted .TSD File?

    First I want to thank you for such a great program! The idea of a similar process to sculpt terrain was something I have had for a while now, so I was ecstatic to see this program when I did. It has been working great so far. However, I think I've run into an issue. I was making huge progress...

    Editing USGS DEM Data

    Howdy folks, it's been a while. It's also good to be back. Lately, I've been dabbling in the addition of accurate terrain data courtesy of the USGS National Map Viewer and the subsequently-retrieved 1/3 arc second DEM data. All of the data that I have been able to find for my project areas...

    Ground Poly Flicker

    Working on night lighting again, and I have the day/night switch working properly, but the poly is flickering. I have the poly sliced every few hundred feet or so. When you're in the air, it looks fine. However, once you slew down to ground level, the whole poly disappears :eek: Any suggestions?

    SCASM Lights Cause dots

    FSX BGLC_9 doesn't keep _LM

    While attempting to get our night lighting working, I ran into a big issue. I have tweaked the ASM and _0.ASM codes to allow for no autogen exclusion and for the poly only to show from dusk til dawn. Everything works great, except for the fact that once I recompile the .BGL through BGLC_9 after...

    Yet another ground poly issue

    Not sure if this is related to terrain or MCX... Basically Ive done the same ground poly modeling technique that I've always used. I've double-checked and all of the altitudes are the same. However, as you can see from the picture, at low altitudes the poly pretty much vanishes into the fsx...

    Favorite aircraft to fly

    Now I know how it is being a developer, you spend many more hours in front of gmax and photoshop than actually buzzing around (slewing doesn't count! :D) enjoying your creation. My question is what is your favorite aircraft to fly when you do take a break? I personally prefer the C208b Grand...
