• 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.

ADE will sometimes report that it is out of memory OOM. Generally this does NOT mean that you do not have enough RAM in your computer. Memory is divided up in a number of ways by the operating system. If some part of that is over used then this error can arise. The most common reason is a problem with the drawing routines. ADE uses a certain set of routines provided with the NET framework (GDI+). These routines are very bad at reporting problems and will often report being out of memory even when they are not.

In most cases this error does not affect ADE at all. If you get one however, please tell us and send us the error message. We can then find the place in the code that causes it and do something to stop the error affecting the program.
