• 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.

Understanding the parameter full_Scale_Distance=

I'm in the process of setting up a period sim, set in the late 60's and had a question about AI sound. I am having a lot of issues with ARRIVING AI aircraft. The engine sound plays far to early to be heard from the observers position, like 2-3 miles from where you are observing. making it a bit unrealistic.

As an example, I have placed the line of code full_Scale_Distance=200 on every "x" external wav file in the soundai.cfg file, but still hear the aircraft when its 2-3 miles away (landing) i assume this line of code would mean that you wouldn't hear anything until the aircraft is within 200 meters of you

I have played around with the line full_Scale_Distance= * believing that the figure put in here is the distance the sound starts to attenuate from the source.

Would it be correct to say that this line of code ONLY applies when the aircraft is flying away from you?

Many thanks, Chris
