• 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.

    ADE Odd line issues

    It should load those from a stock airport. Or do you mean importing XML from a separate file?

    It seems that this is no longer available bia the link I have: http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=15697 Given that its used by BglComp presumably there is another place to get it. Many thanks for any pointers to a download source for this

    P3D v3 1.78 Compile error

    Going back to the top post you report and error trying to compile a bgl file loaded into ADE. I might be able to see what is going on if you attach that bgl file to a post here

    P3D v3 1.78 Compile error

    Yes but if ADE is no longer looking for v3 then it will not be found. It's just no longer supported by the latest version of ADE. We gradually drop support for old versions of P3D ADE 1.78 supports P3dv3; ADE 1.79 does not

    Well since the early days of ADE it has been that case that you should work from the project file. If all you have is a bgl file then that should be loaded and saved as an ADE project file before making any changes (AFCAD works with bgl files, ADE does not). If you have separate airport and...

    So how are you making changes - there should be a project file if you are doing that. If you are working by loading and saving the bgl file then there is no telling what can go wrong

    MSFS Error Message when loading stock airport MSFS

    I would not worry about the fault finder. It has not yet been set up for FS2020 so it can give false errors or unreliable results. It is on the to do list to fix
