• 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.

Appears that the black areas are being translated as transparent.

I suggest that you lighten the solid "pure" black within the textures. Just as you shouldn't have solid or "pure" white also.

Concerning the size, appears it is correct, considering the dimension of the texture. Is there a specific reason why you need textures that size or dimension?

This is a merge of some texture! I've used TexTool on Blender to bake all texture! I'd like use 8k to increase resolution of small object! Now I try to bake with blender and use a pure black as background!
Thanks!=)

I’ve try texture with black pure as background! But nothing change... I’ve fix the problem deleting any folder create after build package manually! And Build package again, in this case the 8K DDS texture is 46mb...yes too much but better than 262mb of DDS
