• 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.

    Ok, is this correct for the example of Las Vegas Airport? <!-- SET the Airport --> 'A KLAS' (>C:fs9gps:WaypointAirportICAO, string) <!-- GET the Data --> (L:WaypointAirportElevation, feet) (>L:Destination_Airport_Elevation, feet) I also understand that the ICAO String is 12 characters...

    P3D v5 Reading of a config file

    Hi, currently I’m working on a xml gauge for P3Dv5. I want to read a special configuration for each livery. My idea is to place a setup.ini in each texture.livery folder. Content of this ini will be option1=1 option2=0 option3=2 And so on. How can I read that content in the xml and set an lvar...

    batch updating old AFCAD to v5 by a tool

    Hi, as I understood the best solution is to open an old AFCAD, remove stock data, load stock data and then compile it again. Is it possible to automate that process? I‘m thinking of a tool based solution. Readout of the entire V5 addon scenery library and then offer to check which AFCADs should...

    P3D v4 Add-on Autogen Bug in P3D 4.4 and 4.5 + Workaround

    Hi, I wanted to share my observations. I moved all autogen outside any add-on.xml. Only ORBX libs had been left that way, because I wanted to keep it installed in their library. All other autogen was merged in the [root]\autogen folder by ACM. So far ok. Now, bang...ORBX via add-on.xml superseed...

    P3Dv5 ACM compatibility

    Thanks, that will be OK. So I just remove all autogen from add-on.xml and name the Folders correct. Except ORBX. So I get a merged autogen in mainfolder plus only one add-on.xml (ORBX). That should hopefully work.

    P3Dv5 ACM compatibility

    @arno does ACM merge the autogen that is in a „autogen“ folder next to the „scenery“ folder, if the scenery is loaded via add-on.xml? Or does it only work via scenery.cfg?

    P3Dv5 ACM compatibility

    Hi Arno, I have currently two scenerys that load autogen via add-on.xml. ORBX and MK-Studios Fuerteventura. MKS is above ORBX in the library. If I have MKS active, the autogen for ORBX is missing. If I deactivate MKS, autogen for ORBX is fine. So for me the situation is, that LM has still not...

    P3D v4 Determining of switch direction

    Hi, I have a switch with several positions. I need now to know if the switch was turned up or down in a xml gauge. I have a (l:switch pos,number) with Range 0-4. I think I need some kind of timer?
