• 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.

FSX Find addon scenery dialog?

As you might know Good ol' FSX has this option "search for addon scenery" in the location dialog.
I remember from FS2002 that some addon sceneries were actually featured in the lists the dialog provides with custom (but common) spawn locations but in FSX these lists remain empty.

Now here comes my question:
Is there a bgl code or anything else to put a spawn location into that dialog?
Or is it a legacy feature for old addons (maybe it can be done with ASM/SCASM tweaking)?
Sadly this is not even mentioned in the SDK documentation :(

Any hint will be greatly appreciated

To clarify: This is the dialog I'd like something to show up (hoping it's there for a reason)
Might come in handy for non ICAO airfields or private/hospital helipads.


Does anybody have experience with this or at least an idea?
