• 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 BGL not working

I have 4 BGL files not working with P3Dv5.3 sim. Tested each one at a time individually and the sim stops working forcing me to kill via Task Manager. Tried with ModelConverterX_160 converting to MDL and then to BGL saving as FSX, P3Dv4.5 etc.
Original BGL files came from AFCAD and using MCX to save the BGL. The original didn't work neither. If I load the AFCAD the sim stops working as well.
Here the original AFCAD and the BGL I need tom get them work with the sim.
I want to point out the P3Dv4.5 sim has CTD randomly with those files.
I appreciate if someone can fix them.

I have moved this question into a new thread, as reviving a 12 year old thread for a new question is in general not the best thing to do.

At first look the BGL file looks normal. But are you saying that P3D crashes/locks up with both the original file and the one you have converted? Because in that case the cause might be somewhere else.
I don't understand, AFCAD does not handle 3D objects.
Looking at the file names I guess AFCAD is actually ADE here.
Thanks, got it. People sometimes use AFCAD as a generic term for an airport BGL file but the correct term is AFD, I believe. AFCAD is a specific program.
