• 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.

    FS2004 Map & GPS Airfield/Seaplane base symbols question

    Hi Folks Leonardo - ATM I can't check your ADE file, as the power supply has failed on my main machine. However from inspecting your XML file, it contains lots of sceneryobjects, but the AIRPORT xml itself, contains no FUEL tags. Hence no Circle with Ticks Extra - Does your WINDSOCK...

    Hi Folks Yep, understood that _LOD_ was causing an issue, but thought it an MCX parameter passing related issue. Whilst _LOD_ is not an XtoMDL command line reserved word, are there any other special meaning names I should avoid ? Many thanks ATB Paul
