• 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.

    (UVW) Textures in flightsim

    I've been working on a model for FS2020 for my home airport and the model itself is coming along nicely. I've started texturing as well and I've looked up as much as I could about materials and UVW mapping, but I'm stuck. In 3ds, the model is textured (I've restarted the texturing process a few...

    P3D v4 No export of the animation.

    Hello everyone! I think it's the first time I talk to you.(maybe not, but it was a lo-ong time ago) I usually prefer to read and listen. But recently I had an issue that I can't solve on my own and I did not find the solution. I have no animation in sim after compilation. No matter how...

    Blender not exporting taxiway lines

    For some reason Blender is not exporting taxiway lines but still can export my base "runway." The only difference between the runway and the taxiway line is that the runway was made from a plane while the taxiway line was made from a beveled curve that has been reconverted into a mesh. Is there...

    Photoshop script for tiling large terrain into <2GB TIFF export files

    Hello All, Just thought I'd share this for anyone in the same boat. I am processing a large (210,000 x 180,000 pixel) terrain imagery in photoshop, and exporting to TIFF or other GIS compatable format was proving error prone and tedious, so I wrote this script to take my large image and export...

    Hello, I made a few performance improvements to a 3rd party SimObject windsock model that I'm using with SODE. However, I seem to be running into an issue. After I finished tweaking, I exported the model as an FSX MDL with the exact same name as the original. However, for some reason the model...

    3ds-Max Gmax Bridge 2.0

    The 3ds-Max Gmax Bridge maxscript utility facilitates the exchange of geometry and associated key-frame animation between 3ds-Max and Gmax. Gmax, by default, cannot export to data interchange formats like FBX or COLLADA thus making the data created within Gmax redundant and confined to the...
