• 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 ILS/LOC Navaids Stop Working in MSFS

    A month or so ago, when I started this project, we (we being myself and others that helped me here) found that it wasn't possible to remove the stock ILS/LOC navaids for runway 13/31. That is when I discovered that 13C/31C would work and for weeks I've been working on and testing my...

    MSFS Exclusions Not Working for Stock Windsocks & Approach Lighting

    In modifying a stock airport, KCRP, I have found that the exclusion rectangle does not seem to work for windsocks placed in that stock airport. It appears in my modified KCRP along with some of the stock approach lighting. The exclusion rectangle I placed at that windsock specifically excludes...

    MSFS Glideslope Library Object Help

    I've looked at the asobo airport generic library and at a lot of airports in the model library, finding the ILS localizer antenna was easy but I have yet to find the glideslope facility. This is a specific antenna/tower/radio shack configuration pretty common at all ILS installations. Help...

    MSFS ILS Components Not Working in MSFS

    With ADE Alpha 18, I created a new project from the stock KCRP. The stock airport was missing a runway (and the child ILS) and the second runway has been lengthened in the years since MSFS captured the satellite image. I added the missing 18/36 and lengthened 13/31 based on FAA NASD data and...

    MSFS Compile Errors with Loaded Stock Airport

    Used Create Project from Stock Airport, which is KCRP Corpus Christi Intl. Only made one change to the project: Opened the Airport Properties and set the version to 0.1 then saved the project as "KCRPmod." When I run Build Project there are compiler errors and I am quite lost as to how to...

    I am trying to layer a ground poly below a taxiway or apron in P3Dv5 but the menu items such as Send To Back are missing and the keyboard shortcut such as Alt+End do not work. Am I doing something wrong? I've tried setting the gp layer to smaller numbers but even at layer 5 the item still...

    ADE 179 with P3Dv5 HF2 (Client and SDK updated to HF2). Load SBEG, do nothing to modify the stock airport and attempt to compile. Compile fails with attached message. Error appears to be related to a stock instrument approach procedure, I never use the stock ones so I'm not familiar. Dan...

    Feature Request: Import/Export ADE Objects to Include Helpers

    I've found a need to mark the location of such navaid objects as localizer, dme and gs and transfer those locations to a new AF file for same location. I found a work around: I place beacons at those locations and export/import the beacons. This works as long as I delete the beacons after use...

    P3D v4 GP Lines Unsteady

    Over the years I've maintained a pretty nice representation of my home base, and in P3Dv3 I add ground poly lines for all surface markings such as taxi lines, well all but runway. It looked and performed very well in P3Dv3 but I am having problems with ground poly lines in P3Dv4 such as...

    P3D v4 Isolated Parking Errors with Beta 1.75.6372

    When using FSDT GSX and an airport bgl compiled by ADEv1.75 all parking spots are reported as isolated by GSX, which means GSX does not see a taxi path connected to the parking. This problem arises when I simply open the airport from the airport bgl (e.g., Flightbeam KSFO, FSDT KLAS or T2G...

    In P3Dv4 with Flightbeam KSFOHD (for v4) and ADEv1.75 Beta: I copy the KSFOHD.bgl original airport file and save as an ADEP4 file.

    Using v1.9.5930 at RJAA Tokyo Narita ILS/DME 34L stock DME location is incorrectly located at localizer. I've used the ILS/Runway Inspector and Editor by Herve Sors to modify the stock BGL to locate the DME at the GS. However, the ADEX project file retains the original stock data. Opening the...
