• 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.

    Sloped Runaways, Sloped Aprons and AI

    I have been reading into the limitations of making an AI behave correctly in sloped runways/aprons. As far as I understand, in P3D (and FSX) the AI follow the reference altitude and not the current terrain altitude. Is this correct? Also, what happens with sloped flatten polygons in airports...

    P3D v3 Photorico TJPS update for 2019 (Freeware as usual)

    I feel like I have been working on this forever and need to get it out, but REAL work keeps interfering. This is my home base airport, where I learned to fly. I did previous versions for FS9 and FSX, and feel it is worthy of a P3D V3 (V4) refresh. It is also a good excuse to showcase the new...
