• 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 Understanding Virtual File System

    I develop gauges in Javascript. As I came through a strange bug, I used the debugger to place breakpoints here and there. I happened to look into NavSystem.js, a source file provided by Asobo and when I saw it in the debugger, I realized the one I was using was not the original source file...

    MSFS Blender Plugin do not export Anisotropic material

    Hi all, I'm actually trying to export an Anisotropic material for my aircraft but any plugin made for blender seems to not export it correctly (MSFS2Blender, FlybyWire, Asobo..). It simply does nothing. When i import a texture in "Anisotropic Direction (RG)" no nodes appears in the shading tab...

    MSFS Roughness Clamped Values

    Hi, Something I don't understand is the way how the MSFS Engine is dealing with the roughness. Looks like the roughness values are clamped. It is not a full range between 0-255. I presume it is related to PBR physical correct values and computation optimization (less data to compute if you use a...

    How to get white building texture?

    I'm trying to relearn the basics of creating models, so I am experimenting with SketchUp and MCX. If I create an object, use a stock white colour on it, it always seems to have this greyish look to it, I assume from the built in AO and lighting in MSFS. When I look at other scenery I own, it...

    MSFS Reading airways

    After some efforts I finally succeeded in reading airways using the FacilityLoader. In order to test it, I used a waypoint I know because it is part of my flight plan. It is DANKS, near Oklahoma City. This waypoint is both on J8 and J152 airways. The problem I have is that I am not sure I get...

    MSFS Forcing autogen buildings to be region-appropriate?

    Hello, I'm curious - is there a way in MSFS, via a poly or anything else, to force autogen buildings in an area to only be created from a specific library? My specific use case is the villages near all the bush strips in Papua New Guinea. It's great that this sim natively includes hundreds...

    MSFS Airport Name & Code Update

    Good morning, everyone: I've been playing MSFS 2020 for a while, and I noticed that one of my local airports has changed its real-world code, since the FAA allowed it to be a public airport. Right now, MSFS has the name set us "McDermott Air Park" with the code "31WI." However, since...

    Automated runway ground markings don't work with custom painted line texture

    As the title says, I'm working on a few variations of painted line textures to make the more realistic over time. I did notice though that the automated runway markings go bonkers as soon as I use the HOLD_SHORT lines of any sort. I'm fairly certain these numbers are being yanked automatically...

    MSFS Memory sharing in MSFS

    Hi Developers, I would like to ask a general question about memory sharing in MSFS, I mean the way several instruments can share information. Let me explain... In FSX/P3D, the gauges used to be DLLs, and you could have all the gauges of an aircraft grouped into a single DLL (what I usually...

    MSFS Only one side of texture shows

    I have been making a wire fence for use in MSFS. I started out making the wire mesh following UTube videos. Then decided to create the mesh as a texture. In Blender it only shows on one side. Rotating the object, it’s completely transparent on the other side. Is there some setting I have...

    MSFS What SDK engine parameters affect manifold pressure?

    I'm trying to model an engine and although I'm getting close to the real thing, the manifold pressure reading is too low. I'm reading values from about 4.0 inHg up to about 18 inHg. The engine I'm modeling should read something in between 25 (1400 RPM) and 42 (6400 PRM). What are parameters...
