• 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.

P3D v4 Video tutorial

I agree, although apparently no one else does. I am not someone who can read boring instructions and then just jump in with both feet. If I can visualize then it's much easier to grasp and a short Tutorial showing a "Starting From Scratch" project would be a great starting point for many of us who tried, failed and uninstalled.

It would be nice if someone would take this thread under advisement and produce something rather than simply ignoring it.

Anyone is free to make such a video tutorial. In fact its probably better that it not be done by the developer since its is then more likely to reflect a user's perspective. The nature of the question that started this thread did not require a response from the developer (who has not created such a video.)

TS Pro is a niche utility, i.e., it focuses on a specific aspect of flightsimming - one that, if the questions posed in the ADE forum are representative, is not generally understood. Use of TS Pro requires a comprehensive understanding of terrain techniques and the way terrain integrates into Flightsim. Without that, use of TS Pro is unlikely to be satisfying and, not surprisingly, the user manual is not likely to be helpful since it assumes that understanding.

Tools such as TS Pro consume many hundreds of hours of development time. Production of a comprehensive user manual (which is not meant to be entertaining) is not an insignificant understanding. Ungrateful users who are not prepared to spend a few hours reading and understanding the user manual can always look for another utility to serve their purposes. There's little you can do with TS Pro that can't also be done with other tools , say, sBuilder; but, you'll have a lot of/more grey hair by the time you finish.
