• 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.

This is being posted as a followup to a discussion regarding alternative ways to import Google Earth (aka "GE") and/or Google Maps raster aerial imagery and/or vector objects into Sketchup with Geo-rectification information ...in this thread:

This script reportedly works only with Sketchup versions 7 through 2013 :alert:


This (free) 3rd party plugin enables import of GE KML GIS source data to Sketchup version-8.

DO NOT ATTEMPT INSTALLING / USING THIS PLUGIN ON LATER VERSIONS OF SKETCHUP.


< NOTE: newer versions of Sketchup can import Sketchup version-8 *.SKP or *.KMZ output files. ;) >


FYI: After import of GE vector objects to Sketchup, one may draw a super-imposed 3-point 'rotated' rectangle traced over the vector poly-line or polygon, then delete the original object ...to ensure all derived Faces are true rectangles.



[Plugin] Loader for Rotated Rectangle, Circle and Box v1.1.1 - by Michaelv


This (free) plugin draws a 3-point 'rotated' rectangle off any 2 edges in Sketchup-8:

DO NOT ATTEMPT INSTALLING / USING THIS PLUGIN ON LATER VERSIONS OF SKETCHUP.


BTW: A pertinent thread regarding installation of Sketchup version-8 and/or plugin Ruby scripts:
