• 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.

MCX Box around object?

Hello, I'm wondering why certain sceneries have objects with bounding boxes as in the attached picture. The object is visible when you zoom/pan into the box. Is this the result of something and does the something serve any benefit? Thanks.

Hi,

Is this for MSFS and which version of MCX are you using? I think it might be invisible MSFS materials you are seeing. In recent MCX versions these are shown as wireframe.

Hello,

Yes, this is for MSFS. I’m not at the PC anymore but it is a relatively recent version of MCX. Do you the purpose of these invisible materials?

I think they are used to increase the bounding box and thereby the visibility range.

Sometimes they can also be collision boxes btw.
