• 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 Island can't be hardened

Even if FSX has a problem with an island being placed there - TMFViewer should at least display it properly, but it doesn't. :confused:
My mistake guys, I forgot to define a landclass...
There's one attached :confused:

I have no idea why, but it really works now. :)
I never had to use a raster landclass file before, but it seems it would've been neccessary.

Thanks Alain! :)

If you look at the WorldLC.bgl, you'll see much of the earth has a landclass of... water.

If you wish to have an island in one of those water LC areas, you need to make a new landclass BGL to define some type of non-water landclass.

This is true of all versions of FS back through CFS2.
