• 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.

MSFS Tip: Loading Shortcut

I assume that since this is in the SDK still that it is OK to mention it. There is a way to bypass the opening screens. In the bin folder of the SDK is a small file called fsdevmodelauncher.exe. Make a shortcut to it and when you click it FS2020 should start faster (although still not very fast on my machine.
 
For the steam version you can right click properties > launch options and add -fastlaunch to the startup options.
 
apologies upfront my OCD is acting up,
this is incomplete until someone figures out how to include the icon for modern app, it is using logo.png as seen in shell:appsfolder :)

meanwhile here's a standalone .ico file that can be used with any shortcut,

Thanks :)
 
I created a ready lnk File for you. Only download and unzip.

Due to the C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe running as Admin in the lnk the windows DEFEDER or other Scanners will pop up.
You may control this save content, before you start it.

The greazy thing is on several PCs the path may be different. Neversless it seems to work, seems to repair the right path!
I am waiting for your testing answers!
