• 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.

    Issue with B737-800 landing lights

    Arno, I downloaded the latest release for MCX. Not sure if you tweaked it for the parameters, but I still get the lights [taxi and landing] permanently on after adding the cockpit _LM textures. I think that this was a deliberate move by Aces!! Charlie. This is the default B737-800 parked at a...

    Issue with B737-800 landing lights

    Thanks Arno and Tom. The save issue would seem to be correct as you can only select day, dusk, night and dawn as on or off [0 and 1] in the add effects in the attached object editor. The default seems to be a single 0 which is effect always on. I tried putting no values in there, but the taxi...

    Animation loss when exporting an FSX mdl

    Many thanks Arno and thank you for the updates for the animation issue. I have a whole load of helicopters as plane guards some 14 in all, and their models vary from GMax to FSDS, FSDS2 and FSDS3.5. Some of the newer ones now save with lights and animations, but the chopper animations do not...

    Animation loss when exporting an FSX mdl

    Thanks, lights, effects and any attachments are not a problem, I am messing up the saving animations. I have the latest MCX installed - 1.4.0.0r2345 DEV 20/05/2013. I have used the animation editor, selecting the animations that I do not want, then fix selected animations. Works for the ships...

    Animation loss when exporting an FSX mdl

    I have a small problem with the loss of animation when exporting an FSX mdl. I am doing some packages for AI and AIcarriers2 and I have noticed that after I have added lights, hard decks [platforms] and effects, when I save the mdl file, all the animations are gone. I checked the animation...

    strange behavior MCX

    Seems like it was a double read somewhere. I isolated all the updates and the latest download works fine. Sorry to bother you. Charlie.

    strange behavior MCX

    Just installed the Jan 13 update again and it works fine. Seems to be the latest release that my PC is having issues with. Charlie.

    strange behavior MCX

    I am afraid that I am getting the same as Robystar in his opening remark. This is with the 220513 update and an error message about dot net framework appears then vanishes. Then MCX freezes and I have to Ctrl, Alt, Delete it. I am working with FSXA/Boats and the textures load, then the prog...

    FSXA Adding props to default Hovercraft

    Props for hovercraft Thanks Tom, no problem because you would not see them that well, due to the transparency issues with the spray effects. Whilst you are here, I noticed on your site that you had a parking spot that has no push-back for the old prop liners. Do you think that this would work...

    FSXA Adding props to default Hovercraft

    Hi Arno, I am trying to add props to the default hovercraft, both static and rotating. The textures are there, but the props are not included in the model. I am not too sure where to start here. It is strange that they did the textures but not the animations in the mdl file. The prop textures...

    Curved/Rec Approach

    Curved AI approaches Thanks Tom. Roger to that, If I get into trouble I will start a new thread. Sorry to butt in, and thank you, Charlie.

    Curved/Rec Approach

    Curved approaches Many thanks for this Jim and linyuan.he. Jim, if I use this as a template [the method rather than this actual approach], will this be the method for creating curved AI approaches to prevent AI from flying into mountains when positioning for approaches? In effect trying to...
