• 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.

Tutorial: Setting Taxi Link Draw Flags to Default Values

The latest version of Lockheed Martin's Prepar3D (P3D) now honors the Draw Flags for taxi links. While these flags - DrawSurface and DrawDetail have existed since FSX, the Sim has ignored them. As a result ADE did not set these flags and existing projects and Bgl files will not show some or all taxiways in P3D v2.

The latest version of ADE (1.60) supports P3D v2 and also provides tools to ensure that the Draw Flags are properly set. The quickest way to set them is to use the reset function. This will set the flags for each type of taxi link based on those values found in stock files. This function is available in ADE for FSX, P3D v1 and P3D v2.
