• 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.

It looks really nice! You got some pretty nice details going and the ground textures look good. Just a tip: check out blender. It's a free modeling program and it allows you to bake ambient occlusion and lighting as well as direct export to fsx mdl via the blenderfsx toolset.

I can understand, it's quite hard to get used to and it will take some time. Maybe later on you'll decide to change but for the moment your sketchup models look great!

Nice work for a first shot :)
If you want to some advices using Sketchup, feel free to MP me (as I'm french too, it could be easier for you). We have developped LFOZ using only Sketchup for modelling, with a quite nice result, it would be nice too share our experiences.
Keep going !

If I could learn how to do ground poly's in sketchup, that would be great. But back to your work: looks good so far, lets see how it looks in the sim.
