• 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 SimConnect Create Static SimObject issue.

    If MCX does not indicate Albedo color as magenta, you can change those numbers to the RBG and that will make it polygon color magenta. You can also import a .png texture to MCX that has dimensions divisible by four colored magenta, assign it to the object and it will be texture color magenta...

    MSFS SimConnect Create Static SimObject issue.

    Yes, my suspicion is that what you are seeing is the polygon color, the version we see in the 3d editor that defines distinct meshes. This should also be the visible polygon color, but default is actually white or no color. If MCX displays it as magenta, then the Albedo color should also...

    What is best way method to change 'landscape'

    Yes, either projected mesh or a CGI will cover what's there.

    What is best way method to change 'landscape'

    Do you know of satellite imagery that represents anything other than what you already have? It looks like you have fairly sharp satellite imagery but that is all it is "imagery." Projected mesh, FYI, lays like a blanket. Both will conform to any surface only, they have no volume if their own...

    What is best way method to change 'landscape'

    Terraforming does not work there? Bear in mind you can terraform in "layers" and you can control the contour by adjusting falloff values. If you need cliffs, you can use one layer with no falloff. If you need gentle rolling terrain, you do your first "mound" in a fairly thin layer with maximum...

    MSFS Mouse zone or objects in background which are selectable

    I've been looking at it for a year now and publishing videos and no one's said a thing so I'm going to have to say "yes." I must thank you for your kindness however, you could have waited for me to publish and really gotten a good laugh.

    MSFS SimConnect Create Static SimObject issue.

    I am not familiar with SimConnect for creating static objects. If you mean the SDK, then no, no problem whatsoever. It would help if you show us your MCX material panel settings and to know your 3d software, 3ds Max and Blender require specific flight sim materials, Sketchup and MCX do not.

    MSFS Mouse zone or objects in background which are selectable

    Very cool, thank you about the hint for exterior hotspots, I have an engine compartment I want to include and this sounds more elegant than a switch on the panel. The Simple Aircraft sample project has a hotspot on the front landing gear steering hub that used to catch my cursor in the cockpit...

    MSFS Mouse zone or objects in background which are selectable

    Actually you might be and I wouldn't be so quick to blame Asobo, unless you want to sound like me. The stated purpose for the collision plane in the SDK is to prevent the mouse from intersecting the panel, it is not defined to prevent the mouse from clicking co linear but not coplanar hotspots...

    MSFS Mouse zone or objects in background which are selectable

    It sounds like you need an EFB and curious about collision planes because they are supposed to constrain mouse clicks to the visible side of the panel. Presumably you are trying to reach over the panel plane, but hotspots affect the entire mesh, which is the entire propeller. Realistically, no...

    Debugging WASM gauges How-To

    Imo these huge grammar improvements are possibly even better than substantive content updates. Page/mode misidentification is enough to drive anyone mad, am I right? The Behaviors Debug has streamlined "quick refresh" into "quick reload" and that one simple change definitively ended the...

    Update a .cfg file

    Good to know, this situation is probably coincidental upon an update. My Behaviors Debug says "quick refresh" and the Aircraft Editor says "resync."

    MSFS Kaman K-Max

    A few new developments to share, new unique Wwise sound package, revised rotor animations and heat blur, among other things. Currently working on ground effects and creating a virtual water tank management system to control all the related animations and effects. Overall very pleased with the...

    Hello World

    As I'd commented, it's been a while, but currently my radios refuse to display and that part of the instrument is the same as the Hello World sample instrument. I might have to redo the entire thing anyway, if you're still trying to figure it out. If not, maybe I can show you my files and let...

    Hello World

    To the best of my memory only panel.cfg was edited. Bear in mind the test instrument already exists, is registered and functions. We change only it's display.

    Hello World

    No log and it's been so long I can't walk you through it. I posted that mainly to prove it is possible and it's also not that hard. What worked for me was to look at what I had to work with and then compare that to the developer version of DA-62 and how that package builds into the flying DA-62...

    Hello World

    The "Hello World" tutorial is incorrectly written. I think they even say in the instructions that it is intentional to teach us how to troubleshoot. I could not figure it out so I hacked the lesson example into the default DA-62. // Panel Configuration File // DA62 [VCockpit01]...
