• 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 all,
I would like to work with the autogen annotator and have my custom building textures used on them, but how do I do that? Where are the textures for Autogen stored?

thanks in advance

Hi,

In the annotator properties you can select which texture file is used for the autogen files. Be aware that the texture should be structured as explained in the sdk.

And don't forget to include a night texture! :eek:
With the filename ending in "LM"!! :eek::eek:
Or the sim will get confused and you'll end up with invisible walls!!! :eek::eek::eek:

P.S.: They are stored in the main FSX texture folder.

In the autogen anotator, can I use more than 1 texture sheet per phototexture? And can I have defined exactly where I have highrise and normal houses?

Hi,

No, per autogen tile you can have only one texture and one distribution between the different buildings heights. You don't have finer control. Each tile covers around 1 by 1 kilometer.

Also I am not sure how easy it is to set a texture per tile in annotator if you load a bigger photo scenery. Technically each tile can be different, but I am not sure if annotator supports that.

if I change it to 1024x1024, do I need to do any others changes in text docs or so? Or can I just re-size the autogen texture?
thanks

Hi,

You can just resize the texture if you want, no changes in the autogen are needed for that.
