• 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.

    Mission Development: Script Editor/Nodes

    So, if what I understand is correct, in order to decompile the mission xml files which are located within the .spb files in the Official folder, you need the propdefs file located in the encrypted folder of the WindowsApps for the MS Store version. While you can access these folders through the...

    Licensing for editing sat imagery

    I think it is clear that for selling addons which contain custom sat imagery, you must buy the imagery with a license to be able to sell it. But what happens when you just want to make edits / improvements to the existing bing maps tiles? Let's say to remove ships from the images in order to...

    MSFS Object placement, relative coordinates and rotations

    Is it possible to create a scene in blender (or any other 3d editing software) with many objects (not just a single mesh) and have the exact placement and orientation of objects in-sim as well?

    MSFS Designing correct scenery for KXTA (Homey Airport)
