• 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.

Effects not showing up on landing

Hi there,

Problem: Spot lights (FX made in MCX) are not showing up when the airport is selected a the arrival airport.

After doing some digging on the internet, it seems to be a problem with P3Dv 4.2. But, does anyone know the fix?

Thank you
 
i Will google it. But could you point me in the right direction to any info? Never done this before - thank you
 
Hello:

Just to clarify the flight scenario related to the display issue for an 'Effect' *.Fx 'light' object:

Are you stating that when you start a flight at an airport greater than ex: 10 Nautical Miles away, then fly into the airport where the spotlight object is placed, the spotlight object at the 'destination' airport does not display ? :scratchch

If that interpretation of the flight scenario is correct, when you start a flight at the 'destination' airport where the spotlight object is placed (and NOT at an airport greater than ex: 10 Nautical Miles away), the spotlight object does display ?

Hi Gary,

That is correct. The spotlights .fx works fine when you load up at the airport. But when you load up at another airport say egll and fly in they don't show up.
