• 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.

MSFS Collision Material

I already made the verification using 3DS but it was the same. Enabling a simobject to land on is not possible in MSFS. i.E. an aircraft carrier may only be used as a scenery object fixed o a defined position but it cannot move around. It works for the collision property itself but not for collision and road material at the same time. And you need the road material property to be able to i.e. land on it and not falling through it. They need to introduce a kind of second level of their ground property that's behind runways but without the animation of the ground deformation rising up to this level. The test_3.jpg shows the only way that I know how to get something to work 100% with all the sim features spawning on, landing on an not on ground level at present. All other kinds I testet on test.jpg are not having full features.

Yes. Just use a simple bounding box.

Not sure what you mean by that, as he actually said "My previous experiments with collision areas were all super simple, just plain boxes. They never worked properly and since the plugin hasn't changed since then I assume they still don't."

If you're saying it works, do you have a simple example blender file that demonstrates it that can be used in MSFS to verify it works?
