• 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.

New tool: Whisplacer

I don't think so, the first post says "It's another XML object placer, exclusively for FSX "
I have Instant Scenery but it does not seem to work anymore. When I open it and choose an object the pointer does not show it

Hi Bruno:

If you have purchased any version of Instant Scenery it should work in both FS9 and FSX.

Try un-installing, then re-installing that package using the latest version from the Flight1 product web page.

He is using IS2, I don't know if you get the latest version (IS3) for free?
The free upgrade to IS3 from IS2 offer was time-limited and likely has expired over 2 years ago.

He could initially try running "Module Installer" from the existing IS2 installed program folder path ex:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Instant Scenery 3\ModuleInstaller.exe

...to un-install, then re-install the IS2 module (*.DLL file):


...from- / back into-:

[FS9 install path]\Modules sub-folder

Reportedly the above procedure resets Windows Registry entries used for IS2 and may in some cases eliminate the need for a "complete" un-install and re-install from the downloadable Flight1 'wrapper' IS2 executable installer.

If he wishes to do a "complete" re-installation of IS2, it might be best do so using the downloaded installer for the 'last' release version of IS2.

If he no longer has his original downloaded installer file, but he has his registration info and he communicates with Flight1, they can provide him with a (private ?) link to download the installer for that last release of IS2.

BTW: The last public link to the IS2 installer that the developer posted in the support forum is here:


FYI: If Bruno already had IS2 installed and it recently "quit working", provided he has his registration Key (*.LIC file) available in a known location on his FS computer, and he has not performed a total reinstall of FS9 since that time, in some cases a repair of the info for the IS2 module in his 'active' FS9 configuration files can be performed to get it working again.

If Bruno provides us with more info on the status of his IS2 installation and whether he actually has his product key (*.LIC file) already available in a known location on his FS9 computer, we could possibly help him get IS2 working again.

BTW: The "official" Instant Scenery support forum is here:


NOTE: Sometimes IS2 can be 'fixed' by the procedure in this thread (...and without installing IS3):


PS: If needed, there is info regarding how to contact Flight1 via a support ticket for a IS2 installer in this thread: :pushpin:
