• 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.

    FX file documentation

    I'm experimenting with effects and I can't find documentation on how to make an "xxxx.fx" file (are they a legacy version of effects?) I can only find documentation about the new XML effects files. I would appreciate any information.

    Hello everyone. It is my first post and to start I will tell you about a small problem with a FS2004 plane that was adapted to FSX, the deHaviland Comet.

    I am attempting to make custom runway lights. After trying the BGL method and being unhappy with the results, I moved over to using effects. The custom effects do not seem to scale with distance, meaning they are either difficult to see at a distance or too big up close. It seems that the...

I write: RANDOM=10,1 in the box to get 90% likely the effect to show, but it does never occur. I don't think I have that bad luck that it happens always to be that...
