• 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.

Automated runway ground markings don't work with custom painted line texture

As the title says, I'm working on a few variations of painted line textures to make the more realistic over time. I did notice though that the automated runway markings go bonkers as soon as I use the HOLD_SHORT lines of any sort.

I'm fairly certain these numbers are being yanked automatically from the ASO_COLORED_MARKS.TIF.DSS in the fs-base-material-lib basic game textures folder.

Is this some buggy lost cause, or am I doing something wrong here (I do not have any other custom textures/mods that would adjust the marks). It's ok if I need to just make these from scratch and place them manually... it just adds a lot more time.

Here's the before (standard texture) and after I add my custom line texture on:
