• 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.

Good Day Jon, is there a way to get MSFS Navs to show in ADE as they are in MSFS? When editing a stock or custom airport in ADE i find that those are missing fromn the editor so i can not see them when working on the stock or custon airport. Thanks in adcane for any help and or suggestions of how i can get them to show in ADE.

Jon, Many thanks. When i open KTLH using the Open Project from Stock menu. The project is created and opened as shown in the snip. What is not either ported over or not showing is the navaids, ILs, Waypoints etc... For example ther are four waypoints that are in close proximity of the airport ( XOTNE due west, FERAT, SPADD-due east and in the flight line of R27 and WAPIM due north. Am I not checking something when that these navs are being missed when creating the project? Thank againmg, Jon for a greta program.

Stock Navaids are stored separately from the airport. This means that ADE needs to read both the airport file and navaid file. This also depends on whether the decompiler (from Patrick) reads both when decompiling and airport. I must admit to not having looked at this recently so need to refresh myself

Jon, Many thanks. So, as of right now , it may not be possible?? If i added them in ADE would that cause problems with duplication in msfs? The waypoints i mentioned are less than 4nm from airport center. Thanks again.

Jon, I will give it a try as suggested. Will let you know how it works. Additionally, my approaches work real well that i built for my custom airport. Is it possible to give each one a name rather than that of the runway. For example when the approach start at a NDB. Can i give it a name that reflects the NDB rather than Approach-ILS-runway. IS therer a difference between an custom approach and a STAR? Many thanks for your assistance and a great program. ADE is certainly one program that i would ppay money for. Thank You for all that you do to help us enjoy MSFS.

I have no idea. The approach part of ADE is the same as for FSX/P3D and has not been changed in many years. Can you change approach names in Dev Mode or is that still non operational for approaches?

What ADE gets depends on the decompiler. I need to check what the XML looks like next

Jon, I did a do over of creating the project from the stock option and still am not able to get even the ILS to port over. Not sure as to why. I have checked all the settings and they all look fine. I am using versions: Application 20.22.8157.21232--Engine 20.00.8096.28162. On the naming of the approachies. The SDK will only allow the runway and a one letter suffix- as shown in the attached snip. I am ok woth that being the case. I would like however to try to figure out how to get the navaid to port over when creating a project from stock. Seems like i remeber that there was a drop down list of items that could be ported over when i used ADE for FSX. I no longer have it installed so I can not be for sure.
Thanks for Your assistance!
Gelomare.

I don't see a way currently to rename approaches

Not sure what you mean by 'ported over'

Jon, I meant that when i create the new project from stock, that i am still not able to get the navids to show. None at all. When you loaded KTLH you didget the ILS to show. I could not. Not sure why!. Thanks.

Yes I got ILS to show

I am looking at the other navaids but as I mentioned most of these are not located in the airport stock file but in a separate navaid file. This does require the decompiler (not written by me) to read stock navaid files.


I am checking if navaids can be added into an airport created from stock with partial success so far
