• 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 Windsock in the middle of a highway

    One more thing, do not make your exclusion rectangle too small. I do not know why, but it does not work if you make it too small. Just watch out for that one! I excluded the windsocks at two of my airports this way.

    MSFS Giving up on MSFS…

    I have developed five airports for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 all of which worked flawlessly up to Patch V1.16.2.0. Now, two of these airports works flawlessly, but the other three causes MSFS to crash to the desktop and I have no idea why. It is not that I am doing anything funny. All my...

    MSFS Anyone else have issues with patch 1.16.2.0?

    Ever since installing the patch, some of my addon airports are now crashing to desktop. No idea why. They all worked find yesterday before the patch, but not now... No idea what Microsoft did... It is also not all of the airports, but only some of them. There is only one way to design scenery...

    MSFS build error in ADE

    Microsoft has changed a lot of things with patch 1.16.2.0. I am not surprised that ADE is no longer working. Three of my airports now caused MSFS to crash to desktop and I do not know why... Personally I think the patch is broken.

    MSFS Failed to convert texture during build

    Your object files (.bin, .gltf and .xml) go in PackageSources/modelLib/ and the texture files (.png) goes in to the texture folder under modelLib. I had the same issue with the texture files you did. All textures must be in equal height and width. That is 512x512, 1024x1024, 2048x2048 etc...

    MSFS Glideslope Library Object Help

    Attached is the GLTF files; I hope you know what to do work it from here... Some free advice from someone who has been around the block more times than anyone can count! ;) If you want to be successful in designing airports for MSFS, then learning how Blender works is essential. The program...

    MSFS Glideslope Library Object Help

    Sorry, but there is not one. There also is no objects for VOR's and NDB's; in case you want to look for those as well! To solve the problem, I converted the FSX object for use in MSFS, but that just looked beyond awful in MSFS! I then designed my own based on real world photos. It's not perfect...

    MSFS Hold-Short Node Locations

    I work a lot with the default editor and it does not have any way to check for any limits regarding hold short nodes. I have also watched a lot of videos from users showing how to add taxiways with hold short points using the default editor and none of them seem to be worried about any hold...

    MSFS Alpha 18 Report Back

    Thanks for the explanation about the models. I was wondering why all my models are 180 degrees off! I have been correcting these in Blender ever since; rotating them 180 degrees before placing them in MSFS. Now I know why! :D:D:D

    MSFS No Taxi Lights when adding a Taxiway.

    Are you adding edge lines with your taxiways? If your taxiways does not have edge lines, then this is not an ADE issue, but an MSFS thing. I use the default editor in MSFS quite often and the only way to get taxi edge lights is to add edge lines to a taxiway. The alternate is to draw the lights...

    MSFS Replacing Base Textures

    We all use the same method: use an apron poly, choose a grass texture of more or less the same colour and then hide the photographed aircraft under that. Something I have discovered is that if you blend the edges of the poly, it merges quite nicely with the rest of the ground! It is then...

    MSFS Path Edge Lines and Projected Mesh

    This is not an ADE issue... I use both ADE and the build in editor of MSFS and the edge lines for roads also do not bend there. I just disable them draw my own road edge lines in yellow as we use them over here. I cannot comment on your other question, sorry!

    MSFS Texture failed to convert [SOLVED]

    I have solved this error and I am now posting the solution for learning purposes. If you get this error FAILED TO CONVERT TEXTURE: path/filename.png while compiling your airport for MSFS then check the texture(s) you are using. The error should generate at the incorrect texture, but not always...

    MSFS Texture failed to convert [SOLVED]

    I have a little mystery that I just cannot solve. I have two buildings in Blender. I designed these buildings for FSX using FSDS, but I convert the MDL's to Collada files using Model Converter so that I can import them into Blender. This has so far worked flawlessly for several hundred objects...

    Beacon Light Effect

    I am trying to create a beacon light effect that will only be visible from the one side. I can do this with the BGL_LIGHT command in ASM, but since MS is abandoning this command, it may be stupid to continue using it. One of the airports I am working on have yellow flashing lights next to the...

    Airport Facilitator X released

    Airport Facilitator X I just bough this add-on and I must say that this is sofar the best money I have ever spent! I tested the program against AFCAD2004 and I have found it to be an exact duplicate of AFCAD. The screen layout is the same, the keystrokes used to move around the airport and...

    Airport Refueling Truck Tip

    Apparently airport fuel trucks are only allowed to travel a certain distance. I am working on this one airport where the passenger terminal is at the one end of the runway and the general aviation area is on the other. I positioned my fuel trucks close the passenger apron, because that is...

    Boundary Fence Command

    The following command will produce a wire fence around an airport: <BoundaryFence profile="{02D65B05-F752-47a3-83AF-D570243EB3EE}" > </BoundaryFence> Does anyone know what profile to use to get a concrete wall instead? Regards,
