• 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.

    Adding PBR to MSFS imports of FSX airplanes?

    I imported the VirtualCol CRJ-200 into MSFS yesterday, and more or less successfully managed to merge it with the Aerosoft CRJ cockpit. Only downside is the cockpit flickers like crazy, but it's still an amazing feat I didn't think was possible. Next task is adding PBR to the model... but there...

    FSX [SOLVED] FSX - (Noob) - Cockpit panel "Repaint Challenge"

    Background on this project is to re-create an "As-real-as-it-can-be-simulated" copy of the Robin Dr400 "PH-SVT" of Vliegclub Rotterdam" - https://www.jetphotos.com/registration/PH-SVT 1 - As free FSX "base materials" I've chosen these fine free Rikoooo Robin download packages: -...

    P3D v5 Any tools similar to Dynamic Reflection Maker for viewing PBR liveries outside the sim?

    Hello, I have been using Dynamic Reflection Maker by Tomato Shade to load and reload liveries I'm working on painting without having to launch the sim. In most cases, it works well. However, it seems the developer has ceased working on it, and I can't get it to load any objects outside of the...

    P3D v4 When you're taking pixel pushing way too serious

    Over the past 11 years I taught myself the art of texturing which I pushed to a pretty much super ridiculous level. It all started with Cheese-Strike Repaints back in 2009 and now developed to Cheesy Simulations (pun intended) over the years. I've tried 3d modelling with Gmax and 3dsMax but...

    P3D v4 PMDG 737 Repaint

    Hi all, I'm trying to make a livery for the PMDG 737 from scratch. However, I've looked at several YouTube videos, and all of them "assume" that the user has designed a livery already. I haven't done this, as I want to make a fictional livery. Is there any type of manual for how to do this...

    Cheesy Simulations - Redux Liveries

    I just wanted to share some of my textures I created the past months/years. All repaints feature custom created exterior and interior textures to match the original livery as close as possible. MJC-8 Q400 - Flybe G-ECOB MJC-8 Q400 - Flybe G-ECOI MJC-8 Q400 - Austrian Airlines OE-LGP...

    FSX Making a repaint: How to create a separate layer with the grey details?

    Although I work with Photoshop quite a few years already, I stil haven't got 'the trick' of how to create a separate layer with the graytones, like darker parts, rivet rows and shadow lines. When lucky, a white textureversion is available, but then what? Most repaint tutorials skip this specific...
