• 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.

    3rd party 3d grass

    I dont know if there are any for ADE. THis is a sketchup subthread. I know there are libraries of 3d grass. Some payware, some free. Not specific to ADE but any 3d object placement tool in most cases.

    Learning Blender

    blender is easy to learn if you want to learn it. Also note, there are 3rd party themes that change the ui to mimic various 3d programs on the market. I have seen them for 3dsmax, Maya, Houdini, ZBrush, etc. Just have to search the various forums. I originally used Maya6. Back in that time...

    Exporting from Blender to .X

    it can for objects, not so sure it works as well for aircraft

    This doesn't look hard.

    It sounds like it would be complicated but they are all pretty simplistic. If you want, call up a local aircraft mechanic and see if they will let you explore the workings of the pulley system. They will usually allow you to come in and watch as long as you dont touch. Also if they work for a...

    FS2004 Failed to create BGL file

    shapelib.dll crash - SBX 3.14

    Have you tried to run in compatibility mode? That would run it in 32 bit on a 64bit os that would possibly tell you if the dll's are mixed up. Did you run the 32 or 64 bit regsrv32? You can try running the associated regsrv32. On 64-bit Windows, there are two versions of the Regsv32.exe file...

    shapelib.dll crash - SBX 3.14

    I know you mentioned you have administrator privileges and you disabled UAC, but try to run it in administrator mode anyhow. This might be your issue. The reason I think this is because of this statement From what you can tell suggest you may not actually have full control of the entire drive...

    FS2004 Building a flight simultor

    Wait you are building a flight simulator using FS9 as a benchmark or the coding of FS9 to make your simulator? Or are you building a home cockpit simulator?

    Looking for some productive criticism, and wisdom!

    I will watch them and give you feedback and let you know if I find anything that could be explained a little better. I know a lot of shortcuts and tricks in blender so this can only help.

    MS Flight to Return.....Hummmm

    Pilots are on the teams for nearly all the popular and good simulators made. ACES had what 7 or 8 flight instructors with ATP ratings to help. The ACES members have split and joined over 20 companies since it was dissolved. Only a few have made flight simulation material since.

    Malaysia Airline MH17

    Its not as hard as people think it is. Even at 20 miles away you can tell the difference between a 777 and a fighter with the naked eye. There is no confusion. For sake of discussion, you can generally tell by the transponder squawk code alone, which some systems can read on a target (Military...

    how to make textures look used

    A sign with that much rust on the edges I would expect it to have chipping and cracking in the paint with more fading throughout along with bleeding. It still looks too new for that much weathering.

    P3Dv2 SDK and 3ds max 2010 x64 not launching

    You can try the 32 bit version of max if the 2010 version is available in 32bit. If you can do that, just run it in 32bit compatibility mode from the 64bit system. Here is a guide to help you set it up if you are unsure how. Applies generically, not specific to 3ds but any 32bit program...
