• 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.

P3D v3 FS9 object libraries to FSX/32 bit P3D

Is the a tool anywhere that will convert FS9 libraries to something that P3D can display? In P3d V.1.4 most fs9 libraries worked (I use Instant Scenery 3) with no issue. With version 3.3 Many fs9 format objects will not show. I'd like to use some of these older objects in some sceneries.

With ModelConverterX you can convert the object library from the FS2004 BGL format to the P3D BGL format. Depending on the texture formats used by the FS2004 library you would also have to convert those.

Just to clarify, you use Export Scenery, not Export Object, to export the entire library to the new format.
