• 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.

    FSXA Exporting MDL or BGL not happening

    Hi, After some further trials, I found the only consistent way to get my models into FSX was by adding the location in model converter before exporting. When I did that the models were always visible in the nominated location even though not always available in EZ scenery. I just got the update...

    FSXA Exporting MDL or BGL not happening

    Thank you Rick. That actually worked, but only once. No matter how many times I tried to export a scenery after my initial success, it has not worked again. Did all the "run as administrator" stuff. Man this is frustrating. SBuilderX would place an object but it was not seen in FSX. My textures...

    FSXA Exporting MDL or BGL not happening

    OK, I just made a 50m square tower 500m tall and coloured it bright pink in sketchup 2014 Pro. I exported it as block.dae and imported that to model converter 1.4. 4:57 PM DAEReader Information Starting reading of file C:\Users\Manfred\Documents\block.dae 4:57 PM DAEReader...

    FSXA Exporting MDL or BGL not happening

    Well, I guess I'm doing something fundamentally wrong. I'll watch Arno's videos again and see if I can figure it out. Thanks.

    FSXA Exporting MDL or BGL not happening

    A nice offer. I wish I could but all I get is "The uploaded file does not have an allowed extension." So I added the .mdl and 'bgl file. Using version 1.4 at least works. It creates files like .mdl, .bgl. It's just that they don't show up in FSX.

    Thank you Sir. I shall give that a try.

    FSXA Exporting MDL or BGL not happening

    I think I followed the video and wiki instructions. I exported a simple block with a single texture from sketchup as first a kmz and then a dae file. Both imported just fine into MCX. The kmz even had the right location on the map. I tried using the export wizard to create an mdl file and a bgl...

    New Texturing tutorial!

    Yup, that fixes it. Looks like IE8 does not like it without the www in front. Thank you very much for your help. :)

    New Texturing tutorial!

    Hi again Arno, It seems that copy and paste shortens what my address bar had. This time I first pasted it in notepad, then copied that. Hopefully it shows up correctly now. "http://fsdeveloper.com/wiki/index.php?title=Texturing_complex_models_in_GMAX" If it helps I am using Vista...

    Sketchup 3D objects

    I just tried it out. I know nothing about collada but does it transfer textures too? My model only had a black and white checkerboard texture. I tried both options pertaining to texture in SketchUp. Other than that is does seem pretty cool. ;)

    Announcing two online video tutorials

    I bet this is the wrong place for this post but I did spend 20 minutes trying to find the right place without luck. Firstly, thank you very much for the videos. They have made some things much clearer for me. In the Performance tips, you mention "smooth shaded objects". What exactly does...

    Sketchup 3D objects

    Thank you for your post bilia. You make no mention of how you re texture in Gmax. The only way I can do it is by selecting each polygon in tern and clicking on Planar. at least then I have some idea of where the verts are located in the model. The sketch up texture mapping is an utter mess...
