• 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.

    ATC vocalizations saying KBDU instead of Boulder

    One last bump for this one as, with further research, I've yet to find a solution :(

    ATC vocalizations saying KBDU instead of Boulder

    I did - my understanding was that cleared all hard-baked default frequencies, and the section below it is where you enter your custom ones (is that incorrect?). Here's my current setup that still spells out "KBDU" when talking to CTAF instead of saying "Boulder" or "Boulder Traffic":

    ATC vocalizations saying KBDU instead of Boulder

    Here's what I'm trying at the moment while troubleshooting: <Com frequency="122.725000" type="CTAF" name="Boulder"/> <Com frequency="118.825000" type="AWOS" name="Boulder AWOS"/> Com is still saying "KBDU" instead of "Boulder" or "Boulder Traffic". I tried putting KBDU into the CTAF field and...

    MSFS Cracking DEM Creation for MSFS

    Curious for an update as well - this seems the only other path right now with Nool's kit out of action.

    MSFS MSFS Toolkit by Nool Aerosystems

    Any updates on any of this? Seems Nool has been quiet a long time. The thread above seems to be incomplete.

    FSX Converting flying/ai aircraft to scenery objects, can I reduce poly count?

    Are you using Blender? If so, look up information about the "Decimate Modifier". The truth though is that your results will vary wildly.

    ATC vocalizations saying KBDU instead of Boulder

    Thanks RK - I'm trying to have CTAF actually say "Boulder" at the moment (which I have the 'name' field as above), but they're saying KBDU instead. Are you saying that if I put the actual ICAO in there that it'll know to say Boulder? (I may have had it setup like that originally, but cannot...

    ATC vocalizations saying KBDU instead of Boulder

    I'm hitting my head against the wall here. Any calls to CTAF/UNICOM phonetically say "KBDU" in the beginning instead of simply "Boulder" or "Boulder Traffic." The only place I've seen to adjust frequencies (which I had assumed was the correct place to change this) was in the objects.xml file...

    I need assistance adding an apron

    While I appreciate the larger range of experience you have, it would be more helpful to actually provide those links specifically. I know for the region I'm currently working on that I've looked through all sorts of imagery from local government scans to some private samples made feely...

    I need assistance adding an apron

    Yeah - Google Earth Pro's history slider only goes back step by step along the times they took imagery of the area that it deemed 'okay enough' to catalogue. Should be daytime, but may not be a specific time of day you want. Could be cloudy, could be blurry, etc. Usually the imagery of the area...

    I need assistance adding an apron

    Not sure if it's an option, but if you use the Google Earth desktop app, there's a 'history' button at the top that lets you go backwards through all of their shots. Really depends on how it lines up with what you see and can work with. If you get a good shot of the water in one of them, even if...

    I need assistance adding an apron

    Cannot help with your main questions. Here is the tutorial I use for CGLs essentially - start to finish! Take a bit to get through at first but after a few tries it becomes pretty simple.

    I need assistance adding an apron

    Thanks for some clarity on the apron vs. polygon. Aprons have definitely been working just fine for all of my general texturing purposes so far. Agreed on that. I've only been using CGLs directly around the airport area to clean everything up - everything hinges on the original aerial shots as...

    I need assistance adding an apron

    Thanks Rick - that was the idea (projected mesh) on a polygon. But to your point, he could just do a CGL. I've only done it around land and don't know how easy those water masks are to do now with the improvements to the SDK. This is bringing up some questions for me personally - I almost...

    I need assistance adding an apron

    Have you thought about taking an aerial overhead shot of what exists (Bing), making your edits there to clear things out, and feathering to 0 alpha (full transparency on the edges) - then layering that overtop as your material? Riffing off of the top of my head here - there could be downsides...

    MSFS MSFS Toolkit by Nool Aerosystems

    Is there currently an alternative to this method, specifically its elev offering? I have my airport's DEM ready to go for input - shot an email a couple weeks ago to Nool / Paavo and tried a direct message him here with no success on figuring out how to obtain a license. I'm just floored with...

    MSFS MSFS Asobo Official Blender exporter

    Welp, got an answer for the above. You need to uncheck the "Use Asbob_unique_id_Extension" I cannot find out much about it - apparently it's to merge multiple glTF files in some way.

    MSFS MSFS Asobo Official Blender exporter

    More issues with light exports (apologies) - not seeing an exact answer for this anywhere and I'm unclear if it's related to this github issue (so I added to it) Blender 2.1 with 1.1.6 exporter Everything is exporting just fine Run my compiler and the model is now erroring out on the lights...

    MSFS MSFS Asobo Official Blender exporter

    Couldn't tell you on marketplace requirements. I know they do clearly suggest that you should have at least 3 LODs in their SDK - not that everyone follows that rule. Might be more strict for the marketplace, but I kind of doubt it.

    MSFS MSFS Asobo Official Blender exporter

    I think there's a few ways you could do that then. Maybe have a primary "edit" collection for each building then duplicate those so they're pointing to any changes you make on the originals. Then just make a new collection with all of your LODs - Turn off your 'edit' objects that are in their...
