• 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 Custom Toolbar - Force Disabled Panel

    Hi everyone, I am desperately trying to force disabling certain in-game panels (such as VFR Map, ATC, etc.) when a given community aircraft is loaded. Is this possible? Within the Custom Toolbar (the gear icon), I can turn off any of these panels, and the option is maintained next time I open...

    Turbine Oil Temperature Range

    Hi everyone. Oil temperature in MSFS seems to work as in FSX, with same variables: - Oil Cooling Constant: (left it at 0 although like in FSX it doesn't seem to do anything) - Oil Heating Constant: gives maximum oil temperature in Rankine - Oil Time Constant: sets the settling time (both for...

    Takeoff-roll at TOGA Engine Issues

    Hi everyone, After some long months of design, tweaking and a lot of input from this community, I am facing an issue I’m bot sure how to solve. All engine tables have been set accordingly, specially tables 1503-1504, 1502 and 1506 (for net thrust). Everything works fine and is on spot more or...

    MSFS DevMode Drag Polar Zoom

    Hi everyone. The aircraft editor has some nice visual features like the Cd-Cl debug curves. Question is simple: is there a way to zoom in or out of these graphs? Sometimes detail is needed and its impossible to get it as is. Thank you.

    Some doubts on Table 1506

    I have come to a point where I need some expert and experienced opinions here. Just to clarify, I have read and searched extensively this forum and, of course, read Roy’s paper on thrust vs altitude. The thing is I have some real N1 vs Thrust data at different altitudes and Machs. As the...

    Descent and Negative TSFC

    Hi all! This is just to confirm that what I am seeing and understanding, is correct. During descent of an aircraft (say A320), with throttle at Idle, you can get negative net thrust due to very low gross thrust but high ram drag at speeds from Mach 0.6 to 0.2. With negative net thrust, you get...

    MSFS N1 and N2 do not change with Altitude

    So I keep testing and working on the A320 Neo engines.cfg. I was able to get the right Engine parameters at Altitude 0ft, ISA conditions and Mach 0, for Idle and Maximum Take-off (all static, with parking brakes on). When I move to a 5000 ft airport, I expected N1 to go higher (and thus N2)...

    MSFS Confused with Engine Model (engines.cfg)

    Hey everyone, When I though I had a reasonable understanding of how the engines are being modeled, I find myself bumping against a wall once and again. As has been discussed in several posts, the engines.cfg file now includes the 150x tables from legacy .air files, some variables from the...

    On "Ground Polys", "Textured Polys" and such ...

    Hey everyone! For the past couple of months (thanks to Covid and the addition of sloped "airports" with P3Dv5), I have learned to use ADE, MCX, SketchUP, and what not. Not an expert, but thanks to this community and to the great videos out there (i.e SoarFly et al.) I was able to get over the...

    P3D v4 VR Mouse Pointer Size

    Hi everyone, I need some help with some tweaks I am working on for VR users. There are two key conflicts I experience regarding the mouse pointer in VR (the circle/ spherical pointer): 1. The color: The transition when hovering is not clear or perceptible within VR. 2. The size: The size of...

    WebSimGauge control over XML

    Hello everyone, I have gone over FSD and Avsim looking for a solution to my problem, but was not able to come across a decent answer. WebSimConnect is a great product, but I am lacking some more detailed documentation and/ or tutorials to work with it (not trying to be critical). I am...
