• 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.

Any help with creating fsx mesh.

I know there is a terrain forum but there doesn't seem to be much traffic there.
I currently have a geotiff which I got by converting a usgs .dem using 3DEM. I am following the fsx sdk documentation, however, I cannot figure out how to run the geotiff through resample. I obviously know that you need a .INF, but it doesn't wan't to compile.

All I did was take an example .INF and edit it to my needs.

Code:
[Source]
Type                = GeoTIFF
Layer               = Elevation
SourceDir           = "SourceData"
SourceFile          = "culebra.tif"

[Destination]
DestDir             = "Output"
DestBaseFileName    = "Culebra"
DestFileType        = BGL
LOD                 = Auto

However, the example .inf compiles just fine, but my .inf does not. I have all of the files where they should go according to the sdk example.

May be for some reson the file is not good, the process for processing elevation data usually is very simple. just get a good elevation geotiff, which is that converter you use?
Dime la zona que quieres conseguir para el geotiff de elevaciones o el Dem.
Por favor postea en el otro thread para terreno, podrían molestarse, ya verás que no es muy fácil conseguir respuestas a veces en este foro, pero siempre pillas algo de otros post.esto es así.

Este es el geotiff que tengo. Estoy usando 3DEM.

This is the Geotiff I am using. I am using 3DEM.

Not worked, I see the file very light, 403 kb or something so.

Its not a big area. Small island. I can open it in 3dem or global mapper and see it.
I have included the .DEM below.

The SDKs address the format that any material must be in to be compiled. Datum and Projection are the key words here. Your source is not in the proper format for either. Fix it and it will probably compile in about 2 seconds.

First, you need to post in the correct forums. This is not optional or negotiable. If your posts are not answered, it may be because others are busy with something else... and no one is under any dictate to answer anything. Sometimes, others simply wish you to try a bit harder to find the answer... perhaps reading the SDK again would help.

As noted above, the projection is wrong for your source data. It needs to be geographic ( lat-long ). The datum must be wgs84.
