• 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.

Hi Dick I sent you a screenshot of my saved proyect which apparently was not send.
So let me ask you. What do you mean that the project nedds to be compiled. I dont see any compile function in ADE only save, which is what I have done and the project saves to F20
In that folder there is in effect a Package folder that needs to be copied to Community. However this folder is empty
Can you please tell me what is it that I am doing wrong

Just noticed that on the saved project folder at the bottom of it there are 4 files:
an edited ad20 file
an edited apf file
an edited xml file
an autosave.ad20 file
question: could this flies be the ones the empty package folder should show? if so, should I drag them to the empty package folder and then copy paste it to community?
This is what compiles your project and places it in the Packages folder:

All seems to work fine, project is being compiled, then ADE asks to save to community & finally an OK that its been done. The compiled package folder now has content & is not empty.
Checked community & the compiled folder should appear there, as it was named , I placed the same name of the airport together with Edited, but it doesn't show in the list?
Appreciate your comment. Will travelling as of tomorrow so I will check your comment on my way back
Regards & thanks a lot for your help
Good morning guys. Just to keep you posted, the compiled package has to be copy & pasted to community. The automatic save to community in ADE is not working. Have now MSFS recognizing edited stock airports
Thanks for your invaluable help
Best regards, see you next time
