• 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.

P3D v3 Taxiway Texture not showing

I have just installed an addon airport (EGNS) to P3D.

When I start up P3D the ramp, parking spots and runways are visible as are centre and edge lines for taxiways but the taxiway texture is missing i.e. the taxi lines are superimposed on a grass texture.

I'm new to this game having dabbled only a few times over the years.

Any suggestions on how I can correct this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Have you reset the Draw Flags? They were ignored by earlier versions of FS but now P3D honors them. ADE can reset them to make sure they are correct

Jon, he downloaded a scenery and installed it, I don't think he uses ADE.

I was really hoping to see the original version of the scenery. To me, it's entirely possible Andy is using an FSX version in P3D. If that is so, there is little we can do, unless Andy holds a special endearment to the scenery, in which case he can learn to use your powerful and easy to understand tool to make improvements to his flight simulator experience. The modification is about as hard as programming SID/STARS into the FMC.
 
Thanks to all for your comments.

First of all I'm not a frequent user of ADE but have used it in FSX in the past to resolve what could best be described as simple (in my opinion) fixes.

The scenery being used was originally for FSX but I recompiled it for P3D. Whether or not that makes a difference I don't know.

However, I did reset the flags as suggested by Jon and after compiling and running P3D the taxiways now show as expected.

What would the modification you talk of be Rick? I do program into an FMC so if you could enlighten me I would appreciate it.

This is the link to the scenery
