• 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.

How can I transfer my FSDS project into .API or an ModelConverterX compatible format ?

I've look on the Wiki and on google and no trace of API format

Hi,

There is the program FSRegen (see download page)... but if it also works with FSDS... that's the question.

FsRegen can only be used to make API macros that call an object from a library BGL. And it only works with GMax files of the FS2002 gamepack.

FSDS should have an option to save your objects directly as an API macro.

What do you want to use ModelConverterX for? The most recent version of FSDS can export to FSX MDL directly, so then there is no need for the conversion. If you only have an older version or only have the API macros left and not the FSC file, then converting might be the way to go.

I wanna explore ModelConverter's feature :)

OK :). Direct saving to API from FSDS is the best then. Which version are you using?

I don't think you can do api files with FSDS v3.5. However it can be done with FSDS v2. Contact Adam Howe at Abacus. I am sure he will give you a link to download it free if you don't have it. Well at least he did with me!:)
