• 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.

Autofill of image coordinates

Hi Jon,

In my tutorial for adding a background image to ADE, one of the options included is using SAS.Planet.

When you save an image file, you have the option to save a kml file as well, which includes the corner coordinates.

Would it be possible to have ADE look for this file when adding a new background image and autofill the corner coordinates?


Example kml:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<kml><GroundOverlay><name>FZJC.jpg</name><color>88ffffff</color><Icon>
<href>FZJC.jpg</href>
<viewBoundScale>0.75</viewBoundScale></Icon><LatLonBox>
<north>3.68631232021912</north>
<south>3.66857659753091</south>
<east>28.6111825704575</east>
<west>28.5931527614594</west>
</LatLonBox></GroundOverlay></kml>

Hi Jon

I am also using the tutorial from Morten and I would also be happy to see if his above mentioned possibility of reading the coordinates from ADE would be implemented.

Alex
