• 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.

A Couple of Questions on SAMM Ver2.X

I'm a long time user of ADE so this is my first venture into adding scenery static aircraft.

!. After I open the first screen in SAMM2 and select my initial aircraft library the input screen and font shrink to a point that is fairly difficult for me to read. I'm old. ROFL

2. When I select an aircraft with a prop, I am not sure how to get the model to display without the prop disk. Any suggestions would help.

3. I also use Model Converter X to view my models to make sure I will not have any aircraft issues before using SAMM2. Would it be easier to convert the aircraft using Export Scenery in MCX?

I have a couple of other issues that I will save for later.

Thanks for any help you can offer. :)

I'm not aware of anything in SAMM that would change font size after you select the aircraft library. SAMM uses standard windows/NET functions for creating dialogs.

Sorry, Can't help you there;)

2. When I select an aircraft with a prop, I am not sure how to get the model to display without the prop disk.
There's a Engines Running checkbox under Pose. If that's unchecked you shouldn't see the prop disk.

SAMMs viewer is the same as MCX. (SAMM includes Arnos .dlls.)

Would it be easier to convert the aircraft using Export Scenery in MCX?
You'll have to be the judge of that.

I'm using the latest Win10 Pro (64) so I was a bit surprised when the screen and font shrunk.

The Engines Running checkbox is not checked, that's why I brought it up.

Don, thanks for the help and great program.

SAMM uses the default font, the size of which is controllable from the control panel. So, if you have some other font selected or are controlling its size other than from the control panel, SAMM wouldn't be aware. In any case, the whole dialog must be on the screen, which limits the size of the font that can be used.

Is the aircraft you are attempting to convert FS9 or a later vintage? SAMM is designed to work best with FS9 aircraft.
