• 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 Conversion scenery errors

There are some known issues with LC that used the TerrainCoverage entries in FSX. Not sure if this is one of them or not.

There is a fundamental problem where sometimes in conversion I want to use Flight assets, and sometimes I want to use FSX assets. There is no way for me to know in the converter unless we just figure out a hardcoded mapping for every single LC. My guess is that a bunch of these problems would go away if we fix the autogen groupings in Flight.

Hi Steve.

I'm wondering if I should work out a hardcoded solution we could use for the landclasses. Of course it might take me until Christmas. :laughing:

Yeah, feel free. I still need to redo the TerrainCoverage handling, but I think it requires me creating a bunch of new VULCNs. I'm thinking about using the 800 range, but from the test I ran, it looks like I might need more than 100. I think once I do that, all class remapping should match FSX, except in some places where I decided Flight is better. The biggest need is probably figuring out the correct AutogenDescriptions to use.
