• 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, could someone do a "youtube" video, or a tutorial "special dummies", to use GP Tool in ADE 1.60, i read the manual, but it's still not clear for me,

Could someone, do a little tutorial, with screen captures of the creation of a simple tarmac with a simple taxyway using custom (and not) GP with ADE 1.60 ?


Thank in advance...

Hi,

I create simple tarmacs with ADE aprons, then use GP's for any custom markings that cannot be done with ADE taxiways or apron routes.

Hope this helps,

I echo this comment. I've read the manual twice today and still can not get it to work correctly. All I'm trying to do is put an X on a taxiway and I can only get the whole sheet to show up. I can not figure out for the life of me how to just select the X from the sheet. There isn't much with FSX I can't figure out. However, ground poly's have always been my huckleberry and continue to be.

Thanks

EDIT: I think I figured it out. I can click on the corners in the edit window and move them to select what I want. Now I'm laying polys all over the place. Nice tool!

Or you could just create a rectangular poly and use an alpha channel to get the "X".
