• 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.

    So far I've learnt that in order to create a custom aircraft light, we need to create an Effect folder in our project, than copy a couple of Asobo preset FX lights and rename them. How do we tell the project where these new presets are? I've tried trough the layout.xml which is in the packages...

    Tutorial - how to remove existing FS2020 default airport that has wrong ICAO code.

    MSFS SID/STAR/APPROACH coding question, transitions between STAR and approach - FS2020

    Hi all, we've had some success in coding our new procedures but there's a problem between STAR and APPROACH. Both of these work perfectly but when we choose both, for some reason STAR gets simplified/changed (both in the main menu or the aircraft systems like gtn750 or similar). Here are just 2...

    MSFS Are V-Tail planes doable ?

    Hello gents, I can't seem to find an answer on this and I figured would probably be best to just ask it here since there are no current plane with a V Tail in the default game and you guys might know something we don't :) We are currently working on a 3D model with a VTail plane but we would...

    Needing to create a VERY basic aircraft for MSFS2020

    Hello! Kevin from PilotEdge here. I’m looking for someone who can create an aircraft for MSFS2020 from scratch- however I can nearly guarantee this will be the easiest aircraft you have ever made.

    Hi all, as in title, a friend of mine was wondering if a desktop pc with CPU i7 2600K, RAM 8GB and GPU Nvidia RTX 580 3GB would be enough to use FS2020 with minimum settings. Is there anyone who has experienced FS2020 with such low hardware? Thanks!

    Hello. I'm making a utility in VS2019 C# that shows a flat Garmin G1000 panel on a tablet, which interfaces to a SimConnect client on the computer running FS2020. Idea is to have a solution for the finicky controls trying to click and turn the knobs while flying which is a bit of a PITA. First...
