• 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.

Suppress GUID and Friendly Name Overwrite Confirmation

I was making a bunch of simple house models where the only difference between each model was that the UVWs occupy a different cell on the texture sheet so I was saving "gen_hse_gab_54x40_cell1.gmax" as "gen_hse_gab_54x40_cell2.gmax" and then running the LODandName tool to assign a new GUID and friendly name.

After clicking the OK button on the "This model already has a GUID, should I overwrite it?" dialog and a similar one for the friendly name a few hundred times I decided I'd see if I could modify the LODandName tool script to suppress those prompts. Seems I was successful so here it is in case some other poor soul is wearing out his mouse clicking those prompts away.


Use with care! :)

Ha ha ha. Jim, you get irritated by that warning. I would click on the answer if there are any "Sure, why the hell I type the new name for that?". Sometime it seems to be stupid if we get warning on something that no one would ACCIDENTALLY do that.
It wouldn't be so bad Tic if the damn button was in the same place as the button on the little "friendly name info" dialog, but they make you move your mouse to click the overwrite conformation! Twice! :)
