• 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.

    Taxi Routes in Prepar3D

    I am trying to figure out how taxi routes are laid out in P3D. I have seen the following ']documentation in the Prepar3D SDK. As far as I understand the taxi route is a composition of different pairs (a taxi path index and a taxi ending point). Is this correct?

    ADE FSX to P3Dv5

    Is it possible to compile ADE projects for P3Dv5 when you only have FSX? When someone tried out our FSX scenery in P3Dv5, he saw default buildings on top of our current scenery which is not ideal.

    Get BGL Type

    I have a good selection of (not to sophisticated) airport sceneries that work fine in FSX. If I port them to P3D v4/5 using the addon.xml methode, the airport sceneries are visible but have some scenery elements missing. I assume the reason is that some BGLs are FS9 BGLs or the textures are...

    A problem I've been having is that OSM and USGS data for most US cities is incomplete, so adding vegetation AGN (for example), becomes a challenge.
