• 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.

    P3D v5 Stock objects showing over KNQA addon scenery

    Someone suggested one time when I had chemical drum scenery where it did not belong in WWII airport I created to look in ADEx lists for autogen scenery and see what it shows maybe you can delete them. Also the black box objects are library objects in the airport that are not in your ADEx...

    FSX Animated Flag

    Write to Dietmar Loleit and ask him how to do that with his. He is very receptive to helping if he has the time.

    FSX Animated Flag

    I started by just placing an animated flag with this program: Dietmar Loleit animated flags If you follow the directions it will put your Canadian flag wherever you want. You don't have to use S-builder either. It is easier than SODE to use for a "beginner" then you can graduate to SODE...

    Attachments don't export

    I downloaded AL Heline's "Creating Night Textures For Scenery" from FSDeveloper by Google and I was able with my Corel Paintshop Pro to create an lm texture for the concrete floor that lights it up beautifully in MDCx although I can't light up the walls because the same texture is used inside...

    Attachments don't export

    After much work today, I was able to merge the light fixture I created in Gmax into the Hanger. THEN I found a post here about the light "splash" one of the responses provided a Gmax file of a lamp with a splash on the ground. I was able to open it in Gmax and delete the lamp pole just...

    Attachments don't export

    I was able to decipher how to attach the effects to the modified light fixture with 8 bowls with the FSX Attach Tool. The effect looked like a beacon NOT what I wanted so after much frustration trying to change it in Gmax that I just don't like to work with, I opened up the mdl in MDCx and...

    FSX Parts missing

    I believe that I took care of all the reversed faces. When I open up the DAE in MDCx latest development version, details fade into some of the parts. When I try and create a bgl or an mdl I get "degenerate polys" and "face vertex" warnings although the bgl and mdl are created. Did you get...

    FSX Parts missing

    I have tried as best as I know how to make this as good as it gets IMHO but I am attaching the final Sketchup model if you would look at it and create either an mdl or bgl from it that all the parts are clear I would really appreciate it so much. Thank you. I appreciate you taking the time to...

    FSX Parts missing

    I was able to get a lot more of the parts by creating an mdl instead of a bgl and uploading the mdl into ADEx. When I did that and opened up FSX I could see that some parts were transparent and others not so I opened up Sketchup 2016 again and when investigating I found that the backsides of...

    FSX Parts missing

    No, I believe that I have reversed all the faces. I also thought that maybe because I had not "painted" them so I painted all the white parts in pale blue to see if that helped but no luck. Thank you for taking the time to help. Its so beautiful in Sketchup and Model Converter X.

    FSX Parts missing

    I just tried something remembering a problem with buildings before and opened up the terminal in 2016 and then saved it as a 2015 model. Went through the whole spiel of conversions but in FSX sitll every white part is missing that is NOT missing when its opened in MDCx Version 130 OR 150. Here...

    FSX Parts missing

    I spent hours and days creating this terminal for Chippewa Co Intl Airport in MI. It looks beautiful in Sketchup. I exported the DAE for creating a scenery bgl in Model Converter X Vs 1.5 where it still looks good but after exporting the bgl; putting in the ADEX library and compiling the...

    FSX Taxi Trainer

    I will try the aircraft.cfg to see what happens at the airport. I know how to use the aiboat traffic from NAS Alameda but it has been awhile. I have all the docs printed out in a folder so I can "play" with that, too. Thank you. I will post the results here later on. Have a very Merry...
