• 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.

MSFS ADE2021 HF3 and 2Way

Hi Jon.
Had my first real issue yesterday. Whereby I inadvertently clicked save on the ADE airport without MSFS in Dev mode. When I opened the project in DEV (without realising the stuff missing/changed) and compiled.
Now you’ll probably know all this but:
1. VASI lost
2. All my lines that were added materials reverted to default line markings even though the stuff is in the MaterialLib folder
3. All aprons with material textures added changed to blank. Aprons still there though. Materials in MaterialLib
4. Objects added that were not in the LOM were actually dropped altogether.

It started when I was trying to bring an apron (big asphalt one) to the front in ADE. In Dev it’s ok with priority 1 and shown above runway but ADE always shows it beneath another. I didn’t resolve it but somehow closed DEV and saved ADE at some point…
I have a backup but the side by side compares show the differences.
So… should I be persevering with 2way?
I know you are flat out but are any of these items on the horizon or of interest?
I didn’t check if the descriptions were passed back and forth.
I can tell you that the latest HF will have a fix for missing Vasi. If you are referring to painted lines materials then there was a change in Alpha 21 to not use them temporarily. I don't have any comment on 3 and 4. I have not been testing around two way editing due to the problems with Dev Mode and SU7. Maybe MS/Asobo will provide some fixes soon. Descriptions are still not entirely available - the snag list is too long right now to get on top of everything
