• 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 MSFS 3d gauges--altimeter keyframes help please

    I'm new to 3d gauges, but am making good progress with my current MSFS project. I've got most gauges I've created working fine, but am stumped when it comes to figuring out what keyframes and related settings are needed for altitude gauge needles. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    Krispy1001's Jodel project..

    Hi. I'm wanting to get a hold of Krispy's Jodel Blender project that he provided at his website, but his website is down. Does anyone know of an alternate source for his project? I'm hoping to use his project file to learn a few things that will help me finish my current project. Thanks for...

    Blender and FSW?

    Since the FSW SDK has been out for a while now, I'm wondering if anyone with more knowledge than I have has taken a look at Blender2FSX in its current state of development to see if it can produce FSW-compatible aircraft? The FSW XTtoMdl is an "improved" version. That's one thing (I suppose it...

    Animations stopped working

    On my current project all animations stopped working a couple of days ago. I could find nothing wrong with any parts, animation tags, etc. Plus when I exported a simple animation test of a model with just a couple of animated parts, they didn't work either. So I uninstalled/reinstalled Blender...

    Prop_still always visible even at full throttle

    Hi. I'm transitioning from FSDS to Blender. All going well thanks to Krispy's videos and the Blender2FSX toolset, but I've run up a bit of a brick wall trying to get my prop_still object to stop showing up all the time. I've tagged/assigned it with "prop_still" but it shows up through the entire...

    Blender: animation question

    Hi. I've used FSDS for years, but decided to try Blender recently. Everything is going well (I like it a lot) but I'm stuck at getting animations along an oblique angle to work, like the aileron in the screenshot. In FSDS I could easy move the axis to the desired spot along the forward edge, and...

    Reduce float on landing

    So I've got this FSX plane I'm working on that flies nearly perfectly, which I'm sure of because I used to own one in real life: 39 hours in a Culver Cadet taildragger. It's a flap-less plane btw. Using Airwrench I've got every thing surprisingly close to how I remember it (I flew it during the...

    Avionics Master Switch

    I apologize if this has been covered in another thread. I couldn't find it. I made a nice, simple toggle switch for my VC, for avionics master on/off, and gave it the animation tag "switch_avionics_master". The switch works physically, but it does not turn the avionics on or off. I'm thinking...

    Nav lights bleeding through structure

    Is there any way to prevent the light from nav lights from bleeding through aircraft structures? I have winglets, and the light from my nav lights, which are definitely positioned further outboard than the winglets, shows through the winglets, when viewed from the VC. It bugs me. :( Muchas...

    FSX control settings vs AirWrench settings

    It occurred to me that I've been adjusting AirWrench settings for the various axis responses (or effectiveness) while forgetting that I've had control sensitivities decreased, and null zones present in my FSX control settings. This became clear after I installed FSX-SE a few days ago. I wondered...

    Extra keyframes for smoother gear compression?

    Does adding extra keyframes between 101 and 200 make for smoother (non-jerky) gear compression? Or is smoothness attained mainly via the correct settings in aircraft.cfg "contact points" section?

    FSX fsdsxtweak material tweak clarification please

    Hi, all. My first post. I have almost literally 1000 planes completed, but haven't wanted to upload them anywhere until I get VC gauge lighting figured out. I use FSDS 3.5, and have been wrestling with fsdsxtweak's tweak for emissive gauge lighting, unsuccessfully. I'm hoping someone can verify...
