• 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.

Now that CAT is almost finished it is time to do some work on ObPlacer XML again. Just like I did for CAT I will use this thread to indicate the development status, so you can see which features I still want to add and how far I am in doing so.

Basic features
:greenflag [100%] Placement of library objects
:greenflag [100%] Placement of effect files
:greenflag [100%] Reading of custom XML library files
:greenflag [100%] Loading MDL object files for placement
:greenflag [100%] Ability to edit/change previously placed objects

Additional features
:whiteflag [000%] Showing of thumbnail images for objects
:redflag: [000%] Sorting of objects by LOD8 areas
:redflag: [000%] Placement of default buildings
:redflag: [000%] Set of known configurations for default buildings
:greenflag [100%] Name objects/add comment for easier editing
:greenflag [100%] Indicator for status of FSConnect connection

PS. It is not necesairy that all these features are implemented before I release a first beta, for that I want the basic features to work.
