• 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.

Did you tried your package in the community? That log Is a nice One, everything Is compiled properly
Those error regarding marketplace data, at the Moment, should be ignored, they wont cause any problem

If you want to create valid marketplace folder and data you should open your project in the Project editor within the Sim (and It a lot of data to add!).

As long as the format of those data Will be relased in sdk docs or samples i'm pretty sure Ade Will be udpdated as well

The two output lines in red are actually warnings and should not affect the build

Hmm, the tower didn't appear :confused:



But, where is the model? And, where are the textures?

The model goes into: PackageSources\GHD-egnt-newcastle-modelLib
The model textures go into: PackageSources\GHD-egnt-newcastle-modelLib\texture

Added the model to ADE:



Positioned model:



Added an "Exlude ALL" rectangle

Still only the default tower is displayed:

The default tower model needs a polygon to exclude it. Also...

Untitled.png


Inside your PackageSources folder is your GHD-egnt-newcastle-modelLib folder. That's where your model needs to be to get compiled. The PNG or JPG textures for the model go into the 'texture' folder. Then it will all get compiled. ( I stuck a beaconBox model in there to test it all.

I don't think the polygon worked:



But, the tower is displayed:
