• 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.

    MSFS Roughness Clamped Values

    @Anthony31 Thank you for your explanation. This is something I should have done. I was testing with a single object and tweaking the values but having this spheres pattern is a better way to see the difference. It is a bit sad that we do not have any technical information from Asobo. Thanks for...

    MSFS Roughness Clamped Values

    Hi, Something I don't understand is the way how the MSFS Engine is dealing with the roughness. Looks like the roughness values are clamped. It is not a full range between 0-255. I presume it is related to PBR physical correct values and computation optimization (less data to compute if you use a...

    MSFS Node without unique ID error, when building an aircraft package.

    I tweak the 3dsMax script that was "hiding/freezing" the ASOBO Unique ID parameter and now I do not have any errors with ASOBO Unique ID in the SDK. Here is the location of the script and the new script that I tweaked. Path : I just changed this line code from "False' to "True". I am not a...

    MSFS VASI not showing the 3d object.

    Problem Solved. It was due to a conflict with the LightPreset (Airport) and LightRow asset and the GUID number of the VASI 3d mesh. The spacing option is still not working. Any idea why?

    MSFS VASI not showing the 3d object.

    Hi, I have a problem with a scene that worked before SDK0.12 but not now anymore. My VASI lights are only showing the light effect and not the 3d object anymore. Plus the spacing parameter is not working. Tweaking this parameter have no effect on it. Any idea why?

    Hi, I am trying to use a custom sheet of marking and use an apron to "pick" the good asset. Like the one used/provide by Asobo. It is kind of difficult to deal with. Do you have any advice for this kind of situation? I played with Local UV, UV tiling option of the apron's option but did not...

    MSFS Custom Apron Texture - Normal Roughness Metal

    I do not understand why you are using the Normal y in the Alpha channel of the COMP map. From the SDK help, it looks like they require to use the Normal z in the alpha channel.
