• 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.

    Cannot Run MSFS 2020 Just Because I Don't Have Enough Space?

    Hi all, I want to thank all of you for you comments and the things I can do to run my MSFS 2020 sim again. Let me start off by saying that I have a 1 terabyte SSD drive and I only have about 41 gigabytes left. As you can see, my disk is almost full. As a matter of fact, when I click the PC icon...

    Cannot Run MSFS 2020 Just Because I Don't Have Enough Space?

    You are not correct. I was able to run this sim until they released an update, which I was not able to download. I don't think you understand what I'm talking about here. The message is saying that it cannot download because I don't have enough space, NOT that I'm not able to run it. BEFORE the...

    Cannot Run MSFS 2020 Just Because I Don't Have Enough Space?

    This problem has never been brought up. I've found a few topics regarding not having enough space but DOES NOT say anything about how one can continue to run the sim without having to download the updates. I'm not able to go any farther and stuck with having to download the the updates. When I...

    Scripting Error Exception In Gmax

    Hi, I'm using the Gmax FSX gamepack and created a house from a tutorial. When I click on FS Tools and select LOD Name Tool, I get this error exception message: Why am I getting this message? I've searched for a solution and have not found it. Actually, this tutorial was created for FS2004...

    Sketchup Will Not Export All The Textures

    Hi Richer, That's really strange why Sketchup 2017 won't export all of my textures but works fine with Sketchup 2020. Sketchup 2017 does export some of the textures but not all of them. The thing is, I have not had this kind of problem with most other projects. I think I may re-install Sketchup...

    Sketchup Will Not Export All The Textures

    The only versions I have is Sketchup 8.0 and Sketchup 2017. These files came from Sketchup 2017 but I don't remember what version it was originally created in. When I try to open the model in Sketchup 8.0, I get the message "Can't insert empty component." I don't know what "component" has to do...

    Sketchup Will Not Export All The Textures

    Hi, I don't know why this is happening but when I export my 3D model, it looks like some of the textures are not being exported. When exported as a collada file, I checked the texture folder and I've noticed that some of the texture names, from the same image, were different from the material...

    Texture Does Not Look Right

    Hi all, Here's what I don't understand. I just happened to remember that I created this airport in another project back in 2021, and the name of that project was KBHM Airport 1970. That was based on what the airport looked like in 1970. It had the same old 1932 terminal with the blue bricks...

    Custom Camera Views For FSX

    That's kind of what I think, but it would be great to know for sure. Thanks, Ken.

    Texture Does Not Look Right

    I think the only way to be sure is to use the original software to export the model into MCX and install the files into the original sim, which is FSX. If you have them, would you try testing them using Sketchup and FSX. You may find things work differently in Blender and MSFS 2020. I've tried...

    Texture Does Not Look Right

    I followed your instructions and I'm still having the same problem: I converted the original texture into bmp and imported it into my model. I've checked the material and it says bmp. So I exported the model as a kmz file. I imported my model into MCX using the Convert and Place Object...

    Custom Camera Views For FSX

    That is not my question and I already know it's in meters. The question is, is that fixed altitude above sea level or is it above ground level? That question is not answered in the SKD. Ken.

    Texture Does Not Look Right

    HI Tom, The sim is FSX and the texture is in a JPEG or .jpg format. Ken.

    Texture Does Not Look Right

    Hi, After exporting my project from Sketchup, the texture on the 1932 old terminal looks nothing like it was originally. I downloaded this texture from SketchupTextures and it pretty much matches the bricks on the real terminal. Here's the original texture: I applied this texture to the...

    Custom Camera Views For FSX

    Hi, I'm creating a fixed custom camera view. At the bottom, it says Fixed Altitude. Is this altitude above ground level or is it above sea lever? The instructions that explains this does not specify. It only says altitude in meters. I assume this altitude should always be entered in meters and...

    Photo Real Scenery

    I'm using FSX and I'm following the tutorial "How to Create Photoreal Scenery in FSX.," which is a great tutorial. When I created my airport map in SbuilderX, I could no locate my INF file that was supposed to have been create along with my bitmap, bgl, and text file. Then I realized that I had...

    Photo Real Scenery

    Hi Rick, I hope I'm in the correct forum. I have my KBHM project completed and now I want to place some photo real scenery around my airport. The problem is that I'll need to re-work the photo real scenery so that it reflects what it was around 1973 through 1986. In the image below, you can see...
