• 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.

    Cannot Generate Detailed Footprint (Solved)

    Noticed that the latest development version of ADE no longer can generate detailed footprints for custom library objects even when I have detailed footprints enabled (can still see detailed footprints for default library objects). I don't know if this is something wrong with the program or maybe...

    FSX:SE Google Sketchup (Major Problem)!

    Hey all, As I've mentioned, I've been working on creating an airport that is technically a hospital (WS03 in Milwaukee), over the last few weeks. On the ADE and MCX end, everything is working fantastically, for which I thank all of you that have provided insight! Now, I'm working on creating...

    Hey fellow Flight Sim Developers! I just created my first project in ADE, which is actually a hospital with only a heliport on the roof. I was able to create the airport in ADE and compile it successfully into FSX: SE, but the hospital building I added from ADE's stock buildings section...

    Hi I placed some objects with ADE and now I saw that every face that has the "Materials.dds" texture is not appearing in FSX. Though in the MCX everything is shown correctly. There even is a special thing with the approach lights. You have to distance from the object to see it. With the...

    Adding Current AIRAC Approaches to FS2004 and FSX

    I am currently in the middle of a huge undertaking that at times I wish I had not started, but cannot let go of. I am using ADE9X to update the approaches at many Alaskan airports to reflect the current AIRAC cycle waypoints. Creating the waypoints is certainly not an issue. I create the...
