• 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.

FSXA SCASM Light not appearing over Ground Poly

Hello Everyone,

I've already used SCASM Lights technique on my first freeware product successfully!
But now I'm trying to do it one more time for my second project however It didn't work really good.

I made a runway with the right information (Right Coordinates and Length and Altitude of the Runway). I made a PAPI Light for the runway then generated .SCA File and dragged the generated .SCA to SCASM.exe so I can get a BGL with a size of 1KB at most. After that, I moved the BGL to my scenery folder.

After running FSX, I don't see any PAPI Light over my actual Ground Poly. However, the PAPI Lights are seen if I delete my Ground Poly BGL (scenery_Ground.BGL). The biggest layer I've used on my Ground Poly is 40.

SCASM Lights are supposed to appear over Ground Poly, right? and That's why I used them rather than the AFCAD Lights (ADE)!

Any solution to this?
I wish you could help me :confused:

; FS2000 runway  13
; [using newer SCASM Runway command for FS2K & beyond]

The Most (Maximum) layer of my GP is 40
I used GP layers as the following:

8 Overlay
12 Edges
16 Concrete
20 Runway
24 Asphalt
28 Markings
32 Skids
36 Photo Real
40 Grass

Should I need to try less GP layers ?

No, try only until the markings layers (layer 28).
i mean, delete all layers above layer 28 and test it.
And do you check that is on correct position?

Thank you so much LD Sceneries !! :):)

It's now working really good after I worked with your advice which is to delete all layers above 28
I used GP Layers as the following:


Grass_Detail19
Aerial Photo 18
Skids 17
Markings 16
Asphalt 15
Runway 14
Concrete 13
Edge 12

Papi Lights are now extremely visible :):)
This is the result

Thank you for your kind words LD Sceneries! :rolleyes::rolleyes:
For the SCASM Light Layer input in *.SCA File, I don't really know about it. However I think that's the PAPI Angle (Maybe)
