• 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.

    MSFS Removing a default airport

    This attached example removes C59 (Lake Lawn Airport) and replaces it with RHUMB (Rhumbaflappy Airport). First delete everything and mark the airport as closed. Then build the new airport.

    And how did you create the project's package folder structure, manifest.json and layout.json?

    I now believe MSFS really is "as real as it gets"

    I like MSFS. I also am aware it is the future for developers as the number of simmers far surpasses anything else. But for developers it has been something of a nightmare. Every month there is a major update, with hot-fixes in between. Little documentation of the sim's components and little...

    MSFS Can't find "bin" file

    Your gltf file can be viewed with a text editor. Near the end you have: "uri" : " beacon light.bin" It should be: "uri" : "beacon light.bin" Get rid of the space before beacon. The real question is why did it take you until post 19 to include the actual zipped example? Until an example is...

    Maybe the patch did the trick? Russia to the right and Finland to the left. You have a layer of 30, and I think that could just be 0 or maybe 1. I changed the name of the "scrub" and "scrub_big" to "finland-scrub" and "finland-scrub_big" to avoid conflicts outside the package. I'm attaching my...

    MSFS New Update

    Anyone else notice how slow the sim has become in taking you to your chosen airport?

    Specular? or Emissive?

    MSFS New Update

    I used a free VPN (ProtonVPN) to fool Microsoft into thinking my provider is somewhere else while downloading. It worked for me this time and has worked for others. It's foolish that we have to odd things on our end to get this downloaded.

    MSFS ImageTool

    do not save textures as DDS. The MSFS compiler will convert them. Leave them as PNG.

    Hi Tatu. I have the same problem with your polys and biomes. After the next sim patch today, I'll try to find a solution. It's identical to the problem with an earlier build when trying the Simple Biome sample from Asobo.

    MSFS Material Colors not Displaying in MSFS

    I was successful in forcing the download. I used ProtonVPN... they have a free version with only 3 choices of a network. But it worked. I found it could be used to get the problem package downloaded, and then deactivate it to resume full speed on other parts. I don't have to exit the sim to do...

    MSFS Material Colors not Displaying in MSFS

    Is the download looping... that is stalling and repeating on the same packet over and over?
