• 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.

    MSFS Refresh/Reload texture

    Hello! I'm currently creating PBR textures for my current project. While the creation is not too difficult, I have not yet found a way to directly check the changes to the textures in the MFS. Does anyone know how to reload the textures in the MFS so that you can see the changes immediately? I...

    MSFS Visibility

    I'm in the process of getting some of my 3-D models ready for the MFS. A few of these models are said to have some intelligence. That worked with the windsock and a clock. The clock shows the local time and the windsock turns into the wind when the wind direction changes. So far so good, but...

    MSFS Analog Clock

    Hi! A small step forward in my current project ... a clock as a SimObject .... If you are interested, here is the code: I fished the formulas for calculating the hours and minutes out of the forum somewhere, many thanks to the author of these formulas!!!

    MSFS 3-D lights of the MFS

    Hi. I would like to ask if there is a possibility to add the internal runway lights of the MFS to his own 3-D model. What are meant are the lights that are green on one side and red on the other, etc. The internal MFS lights should actually have a GUID ?! Or asked a little differently. Can you...

    MSFS Simple Animation

    Hi! I am currently in the process of adding some of my models to the MFS and that has worked quite well so far. Mostly they are static models without animation, such as the large halls, plants, the tower, etc. But at one point I just get stuck. It's about objects that have animation. Even...

    MSFS Parllax mapping. 3ds Max

    Curious if anybody has succeded in creating a parallax window in MFS using 3ds and is willing to share how that can be done. I had a look at the example window that comes with SDK samples, but can't manage to make my own.

    MSFS 3DS Max 2020, Glass.

    I've spent quite a lot of time trying to figure this yet I still can't. Has any of you guys been able to create proper glass in MFS through 3ds? Mine's either opaque, or has too much opacity(with just a tiny bit of transparency). Photos attached below. Official SDK has, let's say, a very subtle...
