• 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 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...

    The latest SDK (14) does not allow the ability to modify its installation location - It goes to C:\MSFS SDK (yes with a space) and does NOT provide the ability to change the location - any ideas? Doing something like this==> msiexec /i "D:\MSFS_SDK_Core_Installer_0.14.0.0.msi"...

    MSFS Is RTCShot working yet?

    There’s documentation for real-time cinematics (RTCs) now, but when I make an RTCShot that references a .gltf with camera animation, the camera animation doesn’t play even if another RTCCameraShot plays correctly in the same RTCSequencer. There’s no errors in the console so it’s hard to debug.

    MSFS How many coordinate systems does an MSFS aircraft need?

    If I have counted correctly, there are at least three involved in aircraft creation and debugging: Firstly, the 3D model. The SDK says In the Z axis the center should be approximately where the water level would be. Meaning that positive Z is upwards. Which matches what most people would call...

    MSFS Any way to change textures without reloading the sim?

    MSFS has a great feature of reloading the gltfs on the fly as you edit them given that you have your package in the Community folder. But it only works if you don't change any textures. I tried to change a texture, build project, move the new package into Community (with sim running), close and...
