• 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 Where is the code for "aircraft logic"?

    I don't know if this post should be here or in the "aircraft design" section. My question is about the aircraft "logic", to know where it is located. What I mean here is the code that is executed to manage some aircraft system that is not related to any display. I am especially interested in the...

    Blank Taxiways

    Good morning, Since I've used MSFS, it seems like the ATC a lot of the airports - both default and addon - never tell you what taxiway to use (i.e. "Cessna 123AB taxi to runway 19R, contact Tower on 124.575 when ready."). Normally, the default ATC would issue taxiway instructions. Is this a...

    MSFS Generic Callsigns

    Good morning, I've been using the live traffic feature of MSFS, but I noticed that the default ATC calls the aircraft types "Generic" no matter what type of aircraft it is (i.e. "Generic N123AB, climb and maintain 10,000."). Is this something I can edit, or is this a problem with the...

    MSFS Slew Mode --> slower and precise movement

    I've just gotten Fs2020 to run on my desktop, however are having problems with slew mode - the movements are too fast and too large, to accurately move around. Has anyone found a solution to this ? to either slow down the movement to be more accurate or through an external application?

    Hi, I have a problem with a scene that worked before SDK0.12 but not now anymore. My VASI lights are only showing the light effect and not the 3d object anymore. Plus the spacing parameter is not working. Tweaking this parameter have no effect on it. Any idea why?

    MSFS Best way of testing SimObjects - Specifically Jetways

    So I have finally managed to get my custom jetway working, but it is such a pain having to edit the 3ds file, export, close the sim, add to comm folder, open up airport, test, and do all over again for every change.

I modeled and textured an edge light with emissives (with a day/night cycle) and added a soft point light to the model to mimic the real life representation. All...

    Comparing the 3 ways to texture the ground...

    There are pro's and cons for every method of ground texturing. Firstly I put all three options side by side (for what it's worth this is just a flat plane textured in Substance). Right off the bat we can see how awesome the Scenery object renders in the game's engine. If only the other 2...
