• 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.

GUID question


If I add more BGLs to a library file that already exists is it possible to recompile the library so that the GUIDs of those BGLs which were already there do not change?

I am concerned that if there is a change to the GUID an aircraft that I have already placed in the AFCAD of an airport then that aircraft will no longer be visible in FS2004 and I will therefore have to re-do the AFCAD.

Ta! for any help.

The Guid is assigned when the model is first created (bottom of SAMM's Main Panel). Recreating a library does not change the assigned guid.

Many thanks for your prompt reply, Don.

Please excuse me for asking basic questions but I'm still learning. I can see, now, the logic in your reply.

BTW, I've not yet taken the opportunity of thanking you for creating SAMM and making it freeware for the community - so please consider it done!! It really is a great piece of software which has allowed me to increase the immersion factor of FS2004 once again.
