• 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.

    FS2004 Default FS2004 Cockpit VC Lighting?

    Greetings, I wasn't sure where to add this, so I placed it in General because I'm not really "designing" anything new. I'm still using FS2004 and am doing some texture updates to some of the older aircraft. I'm also updating some panels -- or at least trying to, anyway. On most aircraft the...

    FS2004 PhotoCalc?

    Dick/Clutch, You guys are awesome! I'll give this a try during the next few days when I get the chance and let you know how it works out. Regards, Jorge Miami, FL

    FS2004 PhotoCalc?

    I was wondering if there was a way to find a program by Rhumbaflabby called "PhotoCalc"? I'm experimenting with FS9 and was wondering if there was a way to get LOD13 extents. For some reason I'm not getting anything close to what I should get when using Excel and some formulae based on what...

    FS2004 FS2004 Apron Vertex with bias instead of lat/lon?

    FYI, This whole thing is supposed to be an update to FS9 to truely convert it into a pre-WW2, civil simulator. Much like GW3, I'm hoping to regress things as best I can with all the things we've learned over the last decade and with 'modern' library models and updated (backdated or redone)...

    And finally, here's the simple route file to get things started: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> <FSData version="9.0" xmlns:xsi='http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance' xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="bglcomp.xsd" > <!-- ************************ --> <!-- Actual...

    Jon, The error messages from Notepad++: Validation of current file using XML schema: ERROR: Element 'TaxiwayPath', attribute 'drawSurface': The attribute 'drawSurface' is not allowed. ERROR: Element 'TaxiwayPath', attribute 'drawDetail': The attribute 'drawDetail' is not allowed. ERROR...

    FS2004 FS2004 Apron Vertex with bias instead of lat/lon?

    Jon, Here's the actual code for FS9. The only error I get is the aforementioned xml errors with Notepad++ when it tries to validate, but I'm able to import the file into ADE without issues. The comments are there just to help me keep things straight on my end: <?xml version="1.0"...

    FS2004 FS2004 Apron Vertex with bias instead of lat/lon?

    Jon, So what I'm understanding is that the vertices are lat/lon only for aprons and fences in FSX/P3D and lat/lon only for aprons in FS9. Other things, to include the fuel box, can be placed with biasX and biasZ as per the SDK's. This is because one can't change the xsd otherwise it will...

    FS2004 FS2004 Apron Vertex with bias instead of lat/lon?

    Jon, Did a test with the FSX SDK (which I assume is also used for P3D from what I've read) which I have from the FSX:Gold CD's I own. I did a slight change to the xml in order to comply with the FSX SDK, particularly with the fencing. I'm unable to get ADE to read the file despite the fact I...

    FS2004 FS2004 Apron Vertex with bias instead of lat/lon?

    Jon, The errors I'm getting are from the xml program (Notepad++) as it reads the xsd when I save the xml file there, not the ADE run. ADE works fine when importing the xml as long as there aren't any issues with the xml file to begin with. Sorry for the confusion. Jorge Miami, FL

    FS2004 FS2004 Apron Vertex with bias instead of lat/lon?

    Jon, Yep, that's what I was wondering. The only difference is that I was under the impression the SDK was incorrect. Could it be the compiler that's messed up? I ran into a thread somewhere and you had posted something about the xsd being modified by someone? I'll have to look it up again...

    FS2004 FS2004 Apron Vertex with bias instead of lat/lon?

    Thanks for the reply, Jon. When you say, I'm still fuzzy. I understand you're explanation that vertices are used on many things. My question is how is it that I can set something like a taxiway point via the bias, but not the apron, and can something be done to "correct" the issue. I'm...

    FS2004 FS2004 Apron Vertex with bias instead of lat/lon?

    Jon, Thanks for the reply. Is this for the Apron? I've been able to use the bias for objects and fuel, but not for the Apron. My second question would be with regards to the xsd which you quoted. Would I be able to just "copy" the bias part from the fuel object or the other objects to the...

    FS2004 FS2004 Apron Vertex with bias instead of lat/lon?

    Greetings, I'm trying to use XML to create a "generic" airfield that I can place anywhere I want in a project I've been working on. Its purposely small (about 1km x 1km in size, or 3,000' x 3,000') with grass runways in an "X" pattern. I would like to create this airfield as generic as...
