• 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.

Video Tutorial Series for Creating Scenery with Blender

I'm struggling with this right now as I am learning substance painter. I have some door trim to put on the outside edges of my door. You said you are "painting grid lines" on a new layer. Is this a texture that you made with perfect grid lines or are you actually painting straight lines where you want your objects to go? I have some 2D doors I want to paint on my faces and the door trim but as was mentioned there is no straight line tool so I am struggling to figure out how you did this.

I'm just drawing straight lines on a new layer.
 
Hey there,

i'm watching your series at the moment - and it does really help, i'm trying ground polys at the moment and ran into a little problem - how do i delete the selected face ?
It's not part of the runway/taxiway but is created as soon as i merge the vertices around it - and i can't get it deleted ?

I've tried using the knife tool - but that seems a little too clumsy for me as of course i wanna preserve some kind of curve.

Any idea there, or, how do you handle these "holes" in your ground poly ?

Thank you

The only way you'll get those inadvertently is if you're trying to fill all the faces at once. It's a good practice to select all the verts for a single segment and fill them, then move on to the next. I don't know if that makes much sense. I never have the issue you're showing because of that.
