• 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.

    Add Realistic Satellite Imagery As Ground Texture

    Hi all, Hope you're all having a good time. I am having an issue with my airport where I have no ground polygons or anything besides the basic runways and taxiways, etc for the airport, yet when it is imported into P3D, it still replaces the ground around my airport with the default unrealistic...

    Correct settings for exporting a projected mesh/ground poly with blender addon

    Does anyone here know the correct setting for exporting projected meshes? I know everything has to be joined into one object or make parents, but some layers are exported with a different scale and orientation.

    MSFS Ground Polygon Alignment Issues

    Hi everyone, I’d figure I’d go here to ask for some help with some finicky ground polygons. Basically, whenever I am creating the ground polygons overtop my reference image (which is projected in WGS 84 / Psuedo-Merc like the bing maps imagery) it looks fine in the 3D modeling software, but...

    MSFS blurry-trembling, jagged, stretched, twisted, wavy texture maps in MSFS with custom ground poly as ProjectMesh

    Hi all, Piece by piece I've been exporting my airport to MSFS via MCX export. Everything is normal so far except that I've been noticing jagged, wavy, and trembling textures in several areas of the ground poly and building ceiling textures. I wonder what can cause this? Textures seem to stretch...

    P3D v4 Small lines crossing ground poly imagery

    Hello, I made this satellite ground poly but I don't know how to be ride of those small line crossing the scenery. I tried some things like change number of tiles or remove the slice polygone option in MCX but it didn't work. any idea?

    [P3DV4] Ground poly flickering

    Hi, i am making an airport which then cause my ground poly to flicker. I have no idea why this happens. I have set my layers, flatten them with autogen, set my MCX altitude same as ADE. but none is working. I have attached an image of my MCX settings. Please take a look. I can't continue with...

    I want to analyze ORBX ground polys and water bgls

    Hi, So I have been working on an airport (Astoria) and it has very similar autogen as orbx KHQM. They also include a custom water bgl that references their water texture. How can I open and analyze these files? I tried ADE and MCX already. By the way , I will not be sharing this scenery , it is...

    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...

    Methodology for Ground Polygons

    Hey, I have recently begun developing airport sceneries for Prepar3D and I use Blender to model and export the objects. While working on the Ground Polygons, what process do you follow for the texturing? Most tutorials I see online use tiling of base textures (asphalt/concrete and cracks) over...

    P3D v4 Abnormal terrain

    Hi, I've been trying to develop a scenery for VABB. I am a complete newbie. So far I managed to draw a base asphalt layer and add just one taxi line (for testing purposes) in blender. From blender I export to collada, then using MCX's GPW I create a bgl. When I place it in the sim, it appear...

    Sloped airports Ground Polygons

    Hello I'm wondering how can we make GP for sloped airports, I mean GPs are 3D objects flattened to the ground and sloped airports do not have a flat ground geometry which makes me think about how can we apply creatures to our GPs? note that every user has his own mesh settings and mesh files...

    ADE Ground poly displaying weirdly

    Hey, I have a little with ground poly, which I wanted to use to do gate markings. I have a 1024*1024 file with a lot of numbers and I have selected one for the poly : And it display like this in the sim : I have attached the project + the texture so you can see. Hope it is resovable ;)...

    Looking for advice to create skids

    Hello, I've been working on a new airport for SLLP in GMAX, at this moment I did this: Of course, one detail that I wasn't possible to achieve are the skids. It took me about a couple of hours trying and error but still no luck. For example, looking in Google Maps, the skids looks like this...

    Ground polygon not physical

    Hi! I try to make a basic ground polygon with only one texture. I made it in Blender, exported in collada (.dae), then in modelconverter x I exported it into .mdl, then with the ground polygon wizard I exported the mdl to bgl. After it, I put it into my airport scenery with texture of course. I...
