• 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.

    Best way to create ground polygons for MSFS

    @peacefarm, those are beautiful aprons. Can I ask how you achieved the variations on your taxiways and runways? Obviously, you have a separate texture (or colorization) for the dark asphalt border versus the lighter asphalt taxiway. Is the variation within the dark or light asphalt as well as...

    MSFS SimObjects not showing up in MSFS with SDK 0.14.x

    For what it's worth, it seems like I was experiencing a couple of issues. First, my installation was bad. I uninstalled and reinstalled the SDK and things began working again. Second, as the SDK has evolved, it is changing its default folders for various assets groups...as I am sure you have...

    MSFS SimObjects not showing up in MSFS with SDK 0.14.x

    Is anybody else having issues with SimObjects with the new version of the SDK? I feel like I am losing my mind. I have previously created a number of SimObjects (flags, windsocks and a rotating beacon) but they do not show up in the sim when compiled with the new SDK. I have not changed any code...

    MSFS Color Matching aerial imagery in MSFS

    @rhumbaflappy, quick question. After I color-correct my image in Photoshop and resave as a TIF, MSFS Toolkit tells me that it does not support ungeoreferenced images. What is the trick to saving the edited file so that it is georeferenced?

    MSFS How to fix the default aerial overriding custom aerial?

    I have been experimenting with aerials and CGLs. With one airport, the default aerial imagery is overriding the custom aerial. Does anybody know how to fix this? You can see the issue in the image below. The left side shows a yellow polygon in Google Earth that represents the area of my custom...

    MSFS MSFS Toolkit by Nool Aerosystems

    A quick note, it looks like the path to the OSGeo4W installer has changed. I believe you need to update the bat file to include a URL to https://download.osgeo.org/osgeo4w/osgeo4w-setup-v2.exe.

    SDK Hires Ground textures in MSFS

    @Dimus, what do you mean by "...texture resolution settings should be set above 100 in the settings..."? Where are these settings?

    MSFS Blender cloth simulation baked to bones

    @RomanDesign, just looking at it in blender, I'd apply all transformations (CTRL-A) to the Armature. It's x rotation is 90 degrees and its scale is 0.100 on all axes. I suspect this is the main issue.

    MSFS Blender cloth simulation baked to bones

    @trfsd, here is a link for both a Blender file and a SimObject. A few notes about this file: This is a SimObject, not a scenery object. To place in MSFS, copy the folder under PackageSources to your project's PackageSources and then add a SimObject Asset Group to your project. The OutputDir...

    MSFS Blender cloth simulation baked to bones

    Good news. I have fixed your flag, @karlo922. See the attached. I added a second NLA animation called Default_State and exported with the "Do channels contribute to the result" checkbox checked for the Default_State animation (it does not hurt to have the checkbox check for other animations...

    MSFS Blender cloth simulation baked to bones

    To fix the distortion with animations, check the "Do channels contribute to result" checkbox for each animation in the NLA Editor (circled in the screenshot below) before you export to gltf. This simple checkbox seems to solve the problem and result in great looking animations in MSFS.

    MSFS glTF-Blender-IO-MSFS / import export Addon

    To fix the texture problem: uncheck Emulate Asobo Optimization under the Flight Simulator section. This will export materials correctly. As for what's the difference between the two utilities: The most obvious difference between the Blender2MSFS and Blender-IO-MSFS is that you can import...

    MSFS glTF-Blender-IO-MSFS / import export Addon

    I have been using this addon for a few days. It takes some getting used to if you've been using Blender2MSFS but I find it to be pretty darn good. Working with Materials is a little different butI have find the implementation powerful and more complete. The ability to import MSFS gtlf files is...
