• 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.

Please keep discussions civil

Hi all.

At times we all need a reminder that this forum is devoted to flight simulator development. In the General forum, we do have room for discussions that are not directly related to FS development, and we all enjoy being able to discuss the real world with our friends here.

But... it is important we keep a leash on our emotions when posting. Too easily threads can get derailed into ranting when we cannot resolve a problem. Fishing for combative responses is trolling. Personality conflicts can lead to insults or bullying. Hi-jacking threads is very poor online etiquette.

These types of posts are subject to deletion. We will lock threads if needed. We will split or move threads as we feel necessary.

FSDeveloper is trying to be not only informative, but a place where we can have civil and tolerant discussions.

There are members that have chosen to leave FSDeveloper because of moderator intervention of posts and threads. Others have been given infractions. The mods and admins are quite sorry for these few incidents. I personally view giving an infraction or ban as a failure on my part to convince members to seek a better resolution of problems.

None of the moderators or administrators enjoy censuring, but at times it needed to keep the forums a good place for developers to come for help, or to share their knowledge.

Now I have to end this post before I get called out for ranting. :eek:
