• 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.

    P3D v4 [Released] Chesapeake Regional [KCPK] for P3Dv4+

    A few months ago, while I was still working on the Hampton Roads project (KPVG), I dropped by another local airport - Chesapeake Regional (KCPK) - and snapped a bunch of photos with my cell phone. If anyone saw a weird guy in sweatpants wandering around the airport property with flip flops, that...

    P3D v4 Default parking spots do not appear in P3D4/FSX

    I've made an AFCAD for SACO airport, based on real charts. However, despite setting all parking spot lines as visible, I was never able to make them showup in FSX'SE. After switching to P3D4 and reading that the parking spot and the taxi path leading to it must not be perfectly lined up, I...

    P3D v4 Placing objects

    Good afternoon, I want to place some 3D buildings (restaurants, hotels, etc) from Sketchup into P3D4 - but not on an airport. Because of this, I don't think ADE is the right tool. What tool or software do I use to place an object at a specified location? Any help you can provide is...

    P3D v4 Dark diffuse in PBR texture

    Hi. Just started working with the PBR materials in the Prepar3D 4.4. I created simple rectangle (in 3DS Max) and simple PBR texture (using Substance Designer). Texture looks like this (preview in 3DS using Prepar3D PBR material type): I converted all maps to DXT5 using ImagetTool and then I...

    P3D v4 P3D4 jetways

    When using ADE I see that there are jetways everywhere but they aren't seen in the airport with P3D4 running. Is there a way to make the jetways shown in ADE to become seen in P3D4?

    Prepar3D v4 & ADE

    Hello I'm new to both Prepar3D v4 & ADE 1.76 but I used a lot FSX & AFX. Since P3D4 is a 64bit application it will be much much better than FSX (RIP). I just can't make changes in a stock airport. I open it, work on it, save it to Projects, but there is no way of getting it to my Prepar3D v4...
