• 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 v3 Missing Generic Buildings

I am using ADE v01.78.7290 and P3Dv3.4 to examine a Freeware airport. At this airport are several 3 level 'Generic Buildings' with the suffix Flat Roof Building but without any further description or picture. I have tried all my listed Generic Buildings but non of them appear as those in the airport. Am I missing some Generic Building Library or could someone help. Not really important, just puzzling.

Generic Buildings are generated in the XML source code and displayed at run time. There is no library for them. It is entirely possible that generic buildings exist that you have not seen before. You can add generic buildings to the ADE Generic Building Manager if you like one and want to use it again


Right Click on the Generic Building you want to save and select Save Generic Building

The ADE pdf Manual contains a lot of information about the Generic Building Manager. Sections 12,11,3 and 13,5 for example
Many thanks Jon, have now downloaded the pdf and it looks as though it will make interesting reading, did not have it before.
