• 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.

Hey all,

For those that wish to get 3ds Max 2020 at an affordable price ($287 USD a year) and find that you can only get Max 2021, when you purchase it, you can go back to Max 2018. Its a Subscription service, so you can back-step to earlier versions of Max, including (presently) back to 2018. So behold.... :) Max 2020, brand new, out of the box, smelling like a new car, for roughly $265 plus tax.

You must not be making over $100,000 (100K) USD in your business to get the Indie version package.

You will need to Google Indie 3ds Max. Trying to find it in Autodesks huge website is nearly impossible.

Merry Christmas!

I do still intend to learn Blender, but my work flow is working 'right now' in Max, and I could simply get into a new version of Max and continue running, where with Blender, I am looking at weeks to months to get things rolling, and I will starve. I do this for a living, and things have been tight. Time is in play presently.

It is 'good' that we have Blender as a freeware design system. And it has become competitive with Max, which says quite a bit. This opens up the ability to make planes for FS2020 to 'everyone'. Its like the return to Gmax. That was one of the things that made FS2004 the 'Golden Child' of flight simulators was a freeware design engine to make planes with, and ease of making planes. Today, we have Blender as the 'Gmax'.

I almost want to say that it was finally about time. Because Adobe and ESRI have long recognized with Photoshop and ArcGIS that they are opening up to home users (hobbies) gain a large number of customers. In fact, it's very good news that anyone using Autodesk software will be delighted to hear.
