• 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.

P3D v5 Assigning height to 3D buildings?

With ScenProc now able to make 3D buildings, is there a way to find out the height (or number of stories) of structures in larger metropolitan areas? Randomly assigning heights with the ScenProc script works great in rural areas and smaller towns, but not so much in cities.

I thought of using population density data and perhaps turning that data into shapefiles for each density level, but what I have displays as extremely dense (dark red) wherever there is a road or manmade structure, so a small storage building along the side of a county road might turn into a 15-foot wide skyscraper.
