• 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.

Hi,
I release the CYYY airport scenery build with FSX SDK. It well displays on FSX. But not in P3Dv4.

Look the scenery in this screen send to me by a P3D pilot. You see the taxis and the end of the main runway (at left of the Maule's left wing). The scenery have a Flatten Exclude Autogen that covers all this runway.

I dont have P3D installed and dont plan for install it. What I have to do to make the scenery P3Dv4 compatible with FSX SDK?

Thanks.

Oups... I duplicate the thread in the wright place : Airport Desing Editor.

jpfil- Ask your user in P3d4 if he has Obix installed. If so 1. he has to disable vectors for this to work. If he does not have vectors then 2. nothing you can do about it.

Hello:

AFAIK, OrbX Global Base scenery likely loads local CVX vector objects even if one does not also have the separate OrbX Global Vector scenery add-on installed.

IIUC, one can- and must- always find, then exclude ...default and/or 3rd party CVX vector objects, prior to replacing them with ones own custom CVX vector object scenery content. :pushpin:

Yes- If one can find any cvx involved in this particular area. If any cvx is there wouldn't that be from Orbx? And when one installs Orbx doesn't Orbx overwrite a number of default files and NOT back them up? ergo- they are lost. Orbx doesn't want yo to go back to default FSX or P3d. Make more money that way.
But yes one would have to find cvx's if any and exclude them.
I have had this problem with a friend who has Orbx, and he does not have vectors installed. Even so, I could make his requested changes on my machine an d send them to him - he would install and we would see NO change on his machine.
