• 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.

P3D v4 Log file error

I am getting an error when using the program. I installed the new Skiathos for P3dv4 and I have no autogen. Looking at the logfile, there is an error, but i have no idea how to remedy it. I have added the log file. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It seems that one of the add-on.xml files on your system contains some invalid characters. But from the error I can't see which one.

Since the merger stopped at this error, it seems the Skiathos autogen was not yet processed and therefore it will be missing.

Do you have many sceneries installed via add-on.xml files? If not so many maybe you can spot the file that causes the problem.

I'll see if I can make the merger more robust in this case as well. It should continue with the next XML file instead of stop completely.

Sorry for the late reply, I have many sceneries installed via the xml method...all of which are payware...I have not manually added any scenery that way. I also have some sceneries deactivated in xml method. That might be the problem.....thanks for the help!
