• 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.

Library Objects from ACG not showing in new scenery

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to build a version of MoD Boscombe Down as accurate as I can manage, to do this I want to use the hardened aircraft hangars used by ACG in their Coningsby and Marham scenery.

I opened these airports in ADE and added all the files within the scenery folders so that all the black boxes in the scenery become visible and appear as yellow boxes. So far so good..

I made a note of what library to find the HAS in and have added this into my Boscombe Down project and all seems well. I compile the scenery and add it into the FSX scenery library the issue comes when I load Boscombe Down and find that the HAS aren't there..

I've read some posts that some users have been able to copy and paste objects from ACG scenery but in my case it's a no show. I'd really appreciate some help :/

Thanks,

Cameron.

You also need to place those HAS BGL files into an active FS scenery folder and the required textures into the adjoining texture folder.

Thanks for getting back to me.

I'm trying to use the HAS from the ACG RAF Coningsby scenery and I've got them in my Scenery Library, I tried to find the HAS BGL files but they're in a bgl file called ACG_CY_OBJECTS.BGL so I've made a scenery folder called Hardened Aircraft Shelter and I've put this BGL into the scenery folder and I've made an adjoining texture folder into which I've put all the texture files I can find relating to the HAS in the Coningsby texture scenery. The scenery folder is active in FSX but still no show..

Here's some screenshots

Do you have any other scenery for this airport in higher scenery layers? If so, they may be excluded.

The easiest way is to load ACG_CY_OBJECTS.BGL into ModelConverterX, export CGYHASCLOSED, CGYHASFLOOR and CGYHASOPEN as FSX models then create a library using Library Creator XML.

Insert this library in your scenery folder and the textures in the associated texture folder.



Here they are placed at my current airport:
