• 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.

Airport lines

Hello everyone
I live near a small airport, FA40, in Florida that I use as my home base for my flight sim. I’m not very experienced with ADE but over the years I have made a few minor changes, mostly buildings, to this airport. Now I would like to add the straight lines that guide the planes to their hangars that can be seen in the pic below. I have read through the manual, watched several videos and worked with ADE but only get lines that have the curved arc.

I use P3Dv4.5 and have the paid version of ADE.

If you would please explain how to get the straight lines or advise where I can find that information I would be very grateful.

Thank you

You have two choices.

1. Use the traditional apron routes with centerlines activated, but make them incredibly narrow. This will tighten the arcs into sharp corners.

2. Create ground polygon lines, which you can create so they have sharp corners.

Hope this helps,
Hi tgibson

I tried your suggestions and both work great. Since I already had some traditional apron routes with centerlines activated, making them very small is much easier and faster.

Thank you for your help!
Take care
