• 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 WindShild RainEffect on Buildings

First of all many thanks for the many answers and the many good tips :)

Now I've come a step further and can say that my idea of raindrops on a windowpane of a BGL building probably does not work. The corresponding section in the SDK to the Mooney Bravo, I have now read several times and it follows that you need two models: external and internal. The windows of both models (internal / external) need different material settings. For this I had specially created a vehicle (Hummer H3) to implement there the WindShildRain effect. That did not work out, but I'm on a good way.

Thanks again to all!
As @JB3DG mentioned you need to create a $texture and then reference it in 3DSMax. I have not done it myself, but it seems to work

I understand that this is a virtual cockpit texture. I had just read that elsewhere. The SDK does not say that, or it's not in the tutorial of the Monney Bravo. But that was a good indication that I had probably overlooked before. Now I will try again. But first I'll be smart about $ texture. Thanks a lot!
