• 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.

    Texture and some other issues

    Hi, I'm not a unity user, but different tools use a different origin for dds files. So it might be you have to vertically flip them. Loading speed should be the same for bin or glTF files. Most formats do not store node or parts names, that's why MCX just numbers them.

    MCX Error Message

    Hi, If the path to your modeldef.xml file is correct, this means that the file itself in not valid. For example there is an mistake in the xml syntax after editing the file.

    Hi, Exporting animations to glTF files is currently not supported, as there are concerns about the authors rights and piracy. MCX has an export functionality for animations, but that is only available at the moment to developers who are converting their own work to MSFS.

    Model Converter X issues

    Hi, To be able to analyze this issue further I would need to have a model to test with. If that model is a payware addon I won't have it and am not able to test it. So if anybody can reproduce it with a default aircraft model please let me know.

    MSFS Using Coordinate Converter for MSFS

    Hi, I don't know if MSFS uses a different earth model, but I don't expect that to be the case. So probably it will still work.

    Hi, With which sim version are you working?

    Blacked out objects

    If you switch to the night render mode in MCX do you see all textures as well?

    Question concerning Attached Object Editor

    Hi, You could export only the attach points to a mdl file. Then you can merge that file with your hangar after you have made changes.

    Blacked out objects

    Check which formats the textures use. Maybe you need to convert them to dds. Also check if you are not missing night textures and such.

    Vertices problem

    That's weird. Did you make any changes after loading the collada file? I just imported it and then directly exported to mdl. Which sdk do you use by the way ?

    Ground Poly as reference - Question / Observation

    Hi, Did you process your ground polygons with the GPW in MCX? In that case they will indeed but curved to match the curve of the earth. But that will cause an offset indeed if you try to align another object to them. You can probably best correct that other object for the earth curve as well...

    Vertices problem

    Could you try version 1.5 (which is the development release)? That's the version I tested with.

    Vertices problem

    Hi, Which version of MCX are you using? I tried to import the Canterbury model, but I can export that one to a FSX MDL without any errors. The Ile de France model does not want to import here on my machine from the DAE file, I get an error that the DAE file can't be read.

    MSFS Net texture visibility

    Hi, I see that MCX adds more attributes to the material, I think it is one of those that gives the difference. I suspect it might be the metallic value which defaults to 0, could you try to change that to 1 with a text editor to see if that helps?
