• 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 Custom Aerial Scenery - trying to remove default land "detail" texture

    I like the idea of being able to control display of a mapped Detail texture attribute in "local" individual custom terrain scenery objects. As to whether this attribute toggle can be used "globally" in individual custom Satellite / Aerial Imagery CGL files, I have not yet tested that. If we...

    (FSX) TmfViewer Question

    Hi Ed: IIUC, you intend to annotate a custom photo-real aerial imagery BGL for an airport area. If you have created replacement CVX vector BGLs for the airport in question, they can be opened in SDK TMFViewer along with your custom photo-real aerial imagery BGL. If you disclose an ICAO for...

    Creating free 1/3 arc-second mesh for US and need some guidance

    Hi Chris: Some folks (like me) tend to fly "low-and-slow" in areas outide airport test radii, and are thus willing to work with a larger install footprint and content detail rendering burden. But, if you believe that most flyers that would use your terrain mesh will likely only be at...

    Hi Chris: This is the info on the USGS 1/3 Arc-Second (~10m) seamless elevation data set I was referring to above: https://data.usgs.gov/datacatalog/data/USGS:3a81321b-c153-416f-98b7-cc8e5f0e17c3 By seamless, it means all edges are aligned by Altitude / extent for 'seamless' tiles of...

    Creating free 1/3 arc-second mesh for US and need some guidance

    Hi Chris: Sorry for the delay in posting a reply; I have been quite busy with a number of matters IRL this year. [EDITED] I (also) would not limit the max terrain mesh LOD to 12, as FS / P3D SDK Resample will automatically read the optimum output resolution achievable with the supplied source...

    AIFP Scruffy Duck Problem

    Hi Guenther: I believe we may all be thankful for your post linked above, that toggles options off by directly editing the *.INI file. ;) As for my own idea, since AIFP does not use the Registry, I had in mind a batch file that might be used at AIFP startup, not a 'hack'. As the AIFP PDF...

    Hi Buck: Having been a Beta tester with fairly extensive experience using Instant Scenery for personal FS projects, I am confident that your described user aircraft slew behavior is not due to any of your add-ons (including IS3). I would not expend time / effort un-installing 3rd party add-ons...

    What addon do I need (for DDS)

    When in doubt, one might wish to open NotePad on top of such a pop-up message box, and type in the text of the status / error message. One may then copy that text and paste the message into Google, potentially to elicit a "plethora" of replies to one's query: :idea...
