• 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.

    Material Names

    Let me know when you see it, so that I can try to reproduce it. I did modify the reader already to ignore the auto generated names. So that will be in the next development release.

    Material Names

    Hi, I can't reproduce the issue with the zero at the end. As for the naming, the names in the X file need to be unique else there are issues. Therefore I don't think using the material name as you suggest will work. If some materials have the same diffuse texture, but some other settings are...

    Material Names

    Hi Thorsten, Not all formats can store material names. Actually only a few do. That's why they can be lost on conversion. In the x file I just number the materials to make sure they are unique. On import that is not read as material name of I remember correctly. The extra zero sounds like a...

    Keeps setting PBR to true when exporting *.glft

    Should metallic not be 0 in that case?

    Processing time for huge shape files

    That sounds like a different issue, as Thorsten was having issues importing data from SHP. Does it get stuck while detecting the features? A roughly 20 x 20 km area is something that should be possible to process at once, although it's probably a big image to load. Did you try to process the...

    Keeps setting PBR to true when exporting *.glft

    Hi, In the gltf format you can only export PBR materials, so that's why that setting is always true when exporting to glTF.

    Processing time for huge shape files

    As you see there has not been a lot of discussion since then. In general I get quite good loading performance in scenproc, but of course if you load a very big area it takes longer and uses a lot of memory. Are you encountering issues yourself and if so what kind of?

    P3D v5 Attach ground texture to an object... possible?

    I have never heard of the option of attaching a ground texture to an MDL object. As far as I know you can only attach an object to terrain vector.

    MSFS Scenery Package size is getting too big due to textures!

    How many textures do you put on each building then? Even if they are not 4K, having many per building can quickly add up.

    FS2004 3D Bldgs and Other "New" Features

    Hi, I never tried the buildings with FS2004, but the polygon limits are different from FSX. It might help if you combine various buildings into one object. The MergeScene step that do that. If the area is not flat you would need to use elevation data as well.

    P3D v5 Creating your own vector data?

    I'm not sure what you try to do with MCX here. Terrain vectors and their textures is not something MCX supports. When you use shp2vec to make the terrain vector bgl the polygons indeed refer to the guid from the terrain.cfg file to determine how the terrain vector should look in the sim.

    FS2004 aircraft mdl export

    Hi, The rudder issue seems related to a change I made recently to fix the rudder on another model. If you open the animation_mapping.ini file and then remove the line with rudder from FS2004_AXIS_CHANGE section the rudder will import as before again. [FS2004_AXIS_CHANGE] rudder 0,-1,0 I will...

    P3D v5 Problems with auto gen for photo real scenery around (33°33′37″N 73°2′0″E)

    No, haven't had the time yet to look at it. Been too busy with other things.

    Can you point me to a download link of the model you use so that I can test it?

    P3D v5 Water Detection idea (work-around)

    The error about the raster type is fixed if you take the latest development release. The MCX changes are nearing their end, so I hope to return to the scenproc features I was working on soon. But not sue yet if water detection is the first thing on my list then.

    FS2004 aircraft mdl export

    I recently made some changes to address this issue on certain models, like that A320 mentioned in the other post. Are you using the latest development release?

    The fix is in the latest development release, so that's version 1.7.

    Spotlight effect dependence on the aircraft?

    Hi, Sometimes FS does not load an effect directly using a controller can work around that. At the moment MCX does not use controllers yet, that's on the wishlist. You could try to reload your scenery and see if the effects appear then. In that case it's the issue I mentioned above.
