• 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.

FSX Vanished Airport

AIRPORT Totally gone....
Hi guys... this one is strange.
I spent another couple of days correcting an airport SABEX.
Saved it, Compiled it, and made a couple of flights out of it....
Went off topic for two or three days to fly my PMDG Tutorial 2 and when I chose my airport to fly from again, It was as nothing changed... Trees back in the tarmack... etc.
I then opened ADE again, went through all the BLG and AD4 by opening one at a time and not saving... Gone?
Is there some of file erasure going on because the prokey isn't registered yet?
Any help would do.
I know that ADE creates backups but are they recoverable to see if the blg file is there?

Thanks Kindly
Flyboy

ADE does not create a backup bgl! it will be an ad4 file, have a look in your main ADE folder for the "autosave.ad4" file

Ray is right but don't look for the autosave file. That is only present if ADE crashed. I assume you are loading and saving your work via the project file(.ad4) and not loading/saving from a bgl file. ADE provides several ways to backup work: https://scruffyduck.screenstepslive.com/s/help_docs/m/20268/l/253109-how-do-i-backup-my-project-1-65 The first two are of limited long term use and provide very specific recovery. The third is the way to ensure that you have a project backup and the user is responsible for when that happens of course.
