• 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 v5 New library objects not showing up in sim

I added Military AI Works' FSX Global Scenery Library Objects to Airport Design Editor, along with the thumbnail images. Everything looks fine in ADE, but none of the newly placed objects appear in my sim, which is P3D v5. Could that be an incompatibility issue, or am I missing an important step? I have used ADE to customize tons of airports but this is my first attempt at using anything other than the stock library objects.

Thanks,

Did you add the library itself to an active scenery folder in P3D v5 including any textures? Loading the library into ADE just tells ADE about the objects - it does not add the actual models into the sim. So the library itself must be added to the sim by you for the objects to show

When I saw ADE displayed the BGL file it was using for the objects I added, I placed it into my airport scenery folder late last night which made some things appear but I noticed there were black objects but no textures. So that explains it. Thanks Jon!
