• 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 am trying to hide the apron and taxi link surface in the FSX. I have unselect the "Draw surface" and "Draw Detail" button but i can see the surface in FSX. In P3D v4, it is hidden.

Manochvarma,

Use for the taxi link "Type Path" and your taxi path is hidden.
And for the apron use noting, maybe a flatten if you don't have a flatten below your airport.

And if you make your "path" very wide, it will flatten the ground automatically. Make it as wide as your original apron, which you can delete.

Hello:

I just happened to see this in the ADE v1.65 Manual today on Page 89 of 309 Pages:

"Auto Set Link Surfaces – Parking & Apron Links should not show a surface type, but there is a bug in FSX that will allow this to happen.

In the window "Program Options of "Settings Menu => Options => General" (see chapter 12.8.1.1 General ) there is a selection box "Auto Set Link Surfaces".

By selecting this option, ADE will manage Parking and Apron Link surfaces to ensure that the surface type for these links matches the underlying aprons or Parking Spots.

Unchecking this gives you more control over the sometimes unexpected surfaces that can appear at certain intersections.

Unless you want to handle these surface assignments yourself, you should leave this checked. FSX only"
