• 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.

Custom Ground Polys

Hello!

I have a scenery project I doing for Fresno Yosemite Intl (KFAT).

I'm in the process of creating the custom ground polygons for the taxiways and aprons in gmax. My question is concerning creating the taxiway edges, mainly where the curves.

I'm using the the plane tool to create the taxiway edges.

Is there an effective way of bending the plane to match the curves on the taxiways? What would be the best way of going about this?

Thank you for your time and help,
Kenny.
 
Hi!

I've been working on this too. I believe there was a tutorial in the resources section, but here's the highlights:
Create a line (spline) in top-down view and edit the tangents so that it lines up well.
In a side view (left, right, back, or front) create a rectangle spline with width being how wide you want it to be and height being irrelevant (but greater than 0).
Edit the rectangle spline and remove the three segments besides the top segment.
Loft the remaining rectangle segment with the line as a path and apply mapping in the options.

I'm posting on mobile so I can't quickly add pictures but like I said there should be a tutorial in the resources section.
