• 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.

    FSX Make aircraft handle worse on the ground (rudder)

    Is there any configuration I can change to make aircraft's rudder less effective while on the ground at low speeds? I tried to remove animation from the steering wheel, but that didn't affect anything, other than visuals.

    Hello, Here is the problem: I have created a scene with photo coverage for FSX and Prepar3D. The scene on Prepar3D works very well especially on the 64 bits version. On FSX after a few minutes, most often after a panning, the simulator crashes. After checking all the technical points and BGL...

    FSX Ground poly disappearing below ground

    I created the ground poly in Blender and exported it via ModelConverterX Ground Polygon Wizard. At certain areas of the airport, the ground polys dip below the ground and disappear- I'm assuming this is because of the curvature. What I've tried: -I've tried cutting and grouping the polygons...

    I've made an AFCAD for SACO airport, based on real charts. However, despite setting all parking spot lines as visible, I was never able to make them showup in FSX'SE. After switching to P3D4 and reading that the parking spot and the taxi path leading to it must not be perfectly lined up, I...

    FSX Reduce flickering of ground polys

    Is there any way of optimizing custom ground polys (especially taxiway lines etc) so that when viewed from afar/at an angle the flicker/aliasing is reduced/less noticeable? My own ground poly seem to flicker more easily than default and ADE ground polys. Is this because the textures are too...

    Which tool is better?

    Dear developers, I will star to learn 3D, to make scenery and, maybe in the future, aircraft. In your personal opinion, which software is better, to adapt the models to FS: Gmax or Blender? Why? Thank you
