• 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.

ObPlacer XML 0.11 released

I have released an updated version of ObPlacer XML. In version 0.11 beta the following changes have been made:

  • When errors occur during saving the XML file, the less readable but still valid XML file is restored
  • Tabs in the XML file no longer give trouble
  • Crash solved when adding MDL objects with an empty object list
  • Compilation problems due to path in XML file solved
  • When you quit you are asked if you want to save the current XML file
  • Folder for the BGL file can be specified as well
  • Option to add all MDL objects in a certain folder at once
  • When adding/updating or deleting objects the focus of the object list works correct
  • The focus colour of the object list now works with all Windows colour themes
  • The produced XML file is more readable now
  • Last used XML and MDL folder are remembered separately

This should solve all bugs that have been reported until now and most requests for additional features are also included.

If you have used v0.10 before, please note that the config.xml file has been extended, so you need to replace it with the one from the zip file. After that you need to make sure the FS path is correct again.

All other bugs and requests are for next year :). So happy new year all.
