• 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.

    FSX terrain under photoreal problem

    Hi everyone, I'm doing a photoreal scenery with SBuilderX v.313, but there are some problems. The first is that under my photoreal there is the FSX default island. The second is that I added polygons to do some montains in this island but this doesn't work well. You can see there that I...

    SBuilderX 315 - Any remedy to tile server crashes?

    I'm no stranger to SBuilderX and it's crashes. I have put up with them for over 7 years now, but it's starting to get to a point where my projects are getting more detailed and thus each crash slows me down more and more. The crashes I deal with 99% of the time are directly correlated to the...

    SBX - Hole/Water polys become inverted on BGL export?

    Hello, I have been plugging away with my vector data for the Solomon Islands, however an issue arose today. When I am working in SBuilderX 315, all of my data seems to display correctly. Water is where water should be and holes are assigned where land should be. However, when I compile the BGL...

    [Solved] SBuilderX315 - Polygon "Make Line" leaves gap?

    Good morning. I've been working on some hand-drawn vector for my Solomon Islands X freeware scenery. To speed up the process, I have always used the "Make Line" option (by right-clicking on the poly) to draw my shoreline textures, however this leaves a gap between two of the points. Is there...

    Differences SBX Generic Building and in-sim Texture Mapping

    When creating warehouses and sheds as generic buildings in SBX (3.14 x64), the Bottom textures for the more industrial buildings line up OK vertically in SBX, but when compiled and opened in P3D v3.4, the textures seem to align halfway between 2 'layers' or textures on the texture sheets? ie...

    Importing SBX tiles into Scenproc to export to GEOTIFF (??)

    Does Scenproc import the BMP files using the TXT files that SBX creates (not the INF fles when you compile)? If so, what is the command to import them? cheers Braedon

    SBX314 x64 - Tile download pauses with 1 or 2 to go

    Has anyone seen where SBX 3.14 x64 downloads all the tiles using the google maps downloader (722 and the initial v3 API one), and never completes? It's downloaded 7936 (+/- a few) tiles at zoom 20, but stops on the last 1 - 10 every time. I can leave it all night and nothing seems to get it...

    USGS OrthoImage Tif files

    I got some good orthoimagery from USGS Earth Explorer and tried loading it into SBuilderX....12 images, 20 Meg each. I tried just uploading 2 of them, without calibration at first, but the images were too tall and just overlayed one another which makes me think SBuilderX couldn't read the image...

    SBuilderX Cleanup 2.0

    The SBuilderX tile server can be a very useful tool in your development workflow, but over time it will also build up an enormous cache of satellite tiles and directories. This cache can be cleared manually, but to make things much easier, I decided to write this batch script that will do the...

    Can the Sbuilder Google Maps plugin not download the POI/business overlay?

    I am trying to use digitise the building outlines from Google Maps, and when the Google Maps downloader downloads the tiles it includes the POI/business names with it which tends to mess with the feature detection a little. Is it possible to re-configure the downloader to not include this...

    ATTN SBuilderX 64 and Win10 Workaround

    Hi, I guess it is well known in the meanwhile that SBX 64 does not work correctly when you run it under Win 10 due to an incompatibility with the shapelib.dll. SBX 64 can't compile CVX data, throwing an error. Tom Stovall (member here) and I had the idea to run it in a virtual Win7-64 machine...
