• 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 Flickering Apron/Runway

Hi,

I have just tried to convert a Fs9 groundpoly to FSX using the Ground polygon wizard in ModelConverterX.
It seems like its not really working as I have flickering textures as soon as I try to use them in FSX.

Probably its something with the layers I guess

Has anyone faced this problem or knows an answer?

Hi,

I think you forgot to enter the correct altitude. It seems you entered 0 meter, but if I look in Google Earth it is around 300 m there. The altitude is need to calculate the right curve of the earth.

Also you need a flatten under your ground polygons. Did you add a flatten already?

Well I already solved this problem, but couldnt post because the forum was down.

Now I would need scasm, but I get a errormessage saying the following:

You don't run scasm as a windoss tool, it's a command line compiler. The ground polygon wizard will run scasm for you.

Hm.. but if I havent "installed" Scasm.. I dont think it will run scasmn then..

When I click convert in the Ground Poligon Wizard I get a error message: "Failed to locate SCASM, please update path in the options"
Well I went there then but I couldnt find a place where I can place a path to scasm..
Tried searching in the internet but didnt found a solution..

Hi,

The error you posted above happens when you just try to start scasm by double clicking on it, so that's why I assumed you had it installed.

In the object writer settings you will find an option to set the scasm path. Or grab the latest development release of modelconverterx and it will come with scasm bundled.

Just gotta place the trees now (well I will ask again if I dont find a way) and then I should also do the summer textures..
