• 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.

Hello:

A heads-up on what the new MSFS-2020 "MSFS_SDK_Installer_0.8.0.0.msi" installer will now do:

Even if a prior SDK installed to a custom folder path, the new SDK installer will find it and delete all of MS' contents in a sub-folder chain installed by a prior *.MSI :alert:


It is possible to run and use MSFS-2020 at the current (prior) level of SDK, even after the sim itself has installed any non-SDK mandatory updates of scenery / core content.


But after installing the newest SDK, MSFS 2020 is committed to that latest SDK revision. :pushpin:

I mean how to fill the windows correctly?
I fill the windows, guided by the charts. But the build shows a lot of errors.
Why can't I enter tenths in the "frequency" window?

I get a big red list of errors when I do a build. All errors are related to ILS.

The format is in Hz, you need to put in the Hz. Example: 109750000 Hz = 109.75 mHz :)
:D That makes sense... But WHY change things so it's different from everything we're used to??? They even changed the range to meters instead of the normal nautical miles... 😄

I agree. And be careful if you edit the ILS section. There is a bug that will cause the sim to crash when you open your project and try to load the BGL in the Scenery Editor. This has been discussed over at the Third Party dev. forum. Do not use the “Range” and the “Beam width” fields for the ILS itself, and if you get a CTD, check if there are range and width entries in your project XML in the runway section, also it appears that secondary ILS is not correctly saved.

I ended up sticking to my old ILS settings directly in the XML. Funny thing though that it didn't populate the fields in the SDK. It was still blank - but nevertheless - my old settings are still working :)

Edit: It actually did populate the fields as long as you put the ILS and GlideSlope settings directly inside the proper <Runway> ... </Runway> tag in the XML. At least they made that right 🙃

Sorry for the stupid question, but I just installed MSFS on a different computer and the option to download the SDK vom the developer mode Help menu section seems to be gone now? Under " Help" the only option is SDK documentation and nothing happens when I click there. Any ideas what´s wrong?

I also had this some time ago. I just waited a little bit and it was there again...
