• 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.

    I would ask everyone to change their password now and to change it again every six months or so. I'm going to change mine now as I realize that I've have been using the same one for about 15 years.

    ADE ver 178 Nudge Vertex Settings?

    Ken, It's so easy that even I can do it. Press the N key to reduce the value and Shift N to increase the value. I think that this is one of the most useful parts of ADE. I use it almost every time that I am working on an airport. Ed

    Best way to import thumbs in LOM?

    Before you go through the objects one by one try deleting the object library from LOM and re-adding it after you have the thumbs folder in ADE. I've been using ADE 1.79 for some time now and I've never had to add the thumb nails one by one. Ed

    Asphalt runway edge line question

    elsmoko a ground polygon is simply a flat model that gets converted into a "ground polygon" and FSX then projects it on top of any other surface including runway textures. Since you have Orbx this is most likely where the edge lines are coming from. Somewhere in your FSX install are one or...

    Elsmoko it looks like the edge lines in your image are made with a ground polygon. Stock runway edges don't have black enhancements they are just white lines. ADE's file priority analyzer tool is only looking for airport files and will not find a ground polygon file. This ground polygon file...

    Creating paintkit using MCX

    While I have never painted an aircraft model or made a paint kit for one I think that a graphic image editor such as Photoshop or Gimp would be a much better tool to use to create a paint kit. Ed

    Happy Birthday to all of us

    I came for ADE and stayed for all the rest. I believe that I joined in April or May 2010. So I guess that I'm still a short timer at just 13 years. Thanks to everyone who's helped me over the years. Ed

    Can ADE do this?

    In ADE you can define the area of the town with a landclass, such as small city, that will create houses using autogen. If you fill that area with individual objects you may end up slowing your frame rates down in that area to a speed that is unacceptable. Ed

    No runway light hardware visible in daylight.

    The default lights that you are using have no light object models included. So you see nothing in daytime. You can either model them and place them including some light effect so that the lights are visible at night or you can use a tool called Airfield Lights which will create simple light...
