• 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.

    Interior Textures

    Hi Everyone, I'm trying to get my P3D scenery working in MSFS, but having used Sketchup almost exclusively for modelling I'm a bit lost in the world of Blender. The import from sketchup via .obj into Blender seems to work ok. However i do notice that the inside of my building is textured as...

    Methodology for Ground Polygons

    Hey, I have recently begun developing airport sceneries for Prepar3D and I use Blender to model and export the objects. While working on the Ground Polygons, what process do you follow for the texturing? Most tutorials I see online use tiling of base textures (asphalt/concrete and cracks) over...

    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...

    Hello everyone! How are you making runway textures? I tried one tiling texture for all runway. I am doing small airport, and there are a lot of cracks, potholes and etc. So if I made base tiling texture, now I have to make lots of planes with crack textures and etc. This method is really...
