• 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.

Texture Issues during importing in SketchUp


i have a gneral question. I know how to import a BGL into Sketchup (with MCX, saving as a .dae), but when i open the .dae in SketchUp the textures, used by the Model aren´t in right place. Is there a way so solve it?

Thanks for your help.
Why open the .dae file? Open the SKP file and edit that. You did save an SKP file, right?
It can happen depending on what the original creation package was.
Check you have the latest edition of SU.

Check ------------------

Select File > Import.
In the dialog box that appears, locate and select the .dae file that you want to import.
Click the Options button. The DAE Import Options dialog box appears.
(Optional) By default, the Validate COLLADA File checkbox is selected, which prompts SketchUp to check that your file is a valid COLLADA 1.4.1 file. If the file isn’t valid, SketchUp asks whether you still want to import the file. Note that an invalid COLLADA file can yield unexpected results. Deselect this option if you don’t want SketchUp to check the file’s validity.
(Optional) By default, the Merge Coplanar Faces checkbox is selected, which tells SketchUp to automatically remove edges on coplanar faces that share the same material. This feature is helpful when importing 3D data from programs that use only triangular faces, which can be tedious to clean up by hand in SketchUp. Deselect this option to retain the triangular faces.
Click OK in the DAE Import Options dialog box.
Back in the main dialog box, click Open (Microsoft Windows) or Import (Mac OS X), and SketchUp begins importing your COLLADA file.
