• 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 Railroad

    I'll bet that the bottom one is procedurally generated from OSM data. I don't know if it can be forced to appear on top of an ortho though. SDK seems to be silent about how to create countryside scenery.

    MSFS VCockpit panel on external model?

    Hello all after some time. I am working with someone on extending a model they made with some extra functionalities. For one of these, I am wanting to put a VC "gauge" screen on a piece of geometry. Now, in the past, exterior was exterior, and VC was a VC, separate models, each...

    MSFS Avoiding Piracy

    Jeepers. For years we talk about how nice it would be to get new blood, then MS actually resurrects FS, and this is who we get? This isn't what I crawled out of my hole for.

    Resellers stop using PayPal for payments

    All those fields are required to fully authorize credit card payment. There are different levels of authorization, and as you give less and less information to the card issuer as a merchant, you increase the chance that they will either fail to authorize the card, or even withhold money if...

    P3D Simconnect backwards compatibility

    Hi, As per C++, I can confirm that a single DLL is useable MSFSX-P3D v3. v4 needs a separate one, however, the code is the same, just the compilation is different. Reference wise, obviously the v4 one references 64bit everything, however, for the 32bit platform, I only ever refer to a single...

    I wish I had the capacity Arno, but MS stack is not within my expertise and I don't really want to learn by doing here... plus, there's massive changes coming in my life, and I've no idea how I'll be managing...

    by the same token, LM is the biggest contractor, they can easily afford to ignore the issue.

    Is the MS/IIS combination hard set, or would you be interested in potentially moving to LAMP stack?

    An NSA Cyber Weapon Might Be Behind A Massive Global Ransomware Outbreak

    W7 is not out of warranty yet, especially seeing as it was actually during an upgrade to an even-less-out-of-warranty version that this happened. Either case, I think that while using Administrator user for common operation is discouraged, it's still common enough to warrant a specific care...

    An NSA Cyber Weapon Might Be Behind A Massive Global Ransomware Outbreak

    That does make a lot more sense from a user standpoint, although also not recommended, I would expect MS to handle this

    An NSA Cyber Weapon Might Be Behind A Massive Global Ransomware Outbreak

    You know, all that does is copy Windows to Windows.old before installing new Windows. If you had personal files saved under C:\Windows\somethingorother, you only have yourself to blame.

    FS2004 EGT Gauge in XML

    I figure by reading it it shows a different image, it's either 2 if it's greater than 8800pph, 1 if it's greater than 4400pph or 0 as default. But I can't for the love of me actually write anything in this craziness.

    Rebuilding Rig; Importing a Registry

    What you would need to do, is attach the old registry hives into current system (temporarily). Like you have HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software...etc you'd do HKEY_CURRENT_USER\OLDHKEY\Software...etc. Then you can export all the stuff into a .reg file, which is essentially a text file. You'll still...

    Rebuilding Rig; Importing a Registry

    Yes, do you only want to import simulator specific keys though? I can't recommend trying to import all the stuff. Been there, done that, didn't end well. (If your C: drive is still readable, I'd suggest making an image copy, but...it's not the case, is it?)
