• 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.

    tmf viewer

    I'm new bear with me please. I'm trying to use the tmf viewer to look at the elevations at my airport. I have the Dir and File number for the location but don't know how to input them? When I open the viewer and click File I'm supposed to navigate to the file to open instead of inputting the...

    Is it possible to find and trace lowest elevations in the terrain to route a river? I'm working on a stock airport I'm familiar with that has a nearby river. I've used a Google Earth aerial image to route it but it doesn't match the terrain. I don't care if the river is placed exactly where the...

    Apron Taxi markings

    I use only center lines for taxi into parking spots. Yet some of those center lines show in the sim and some don't. As you can see, there are no curving center lines in the foreground but one in the back ground circled On that subject what's the difference between "draw surface" and "draw...

    Connecting ADE to FSX?

    It had been over year since I flew with FSX-Steam Edition. And when I tried again there were all sorts of control issues and crashes. So I unstalled the Steam Edition according to the instructions and reinstalled. Worked just fine. The problem is I also used Scruffy Duck's Aiport Design Editor...

    FSX Building won't display

    I remember on my first airport project I removed a stock building on the apron and replaced it with another which wouldn't display but I don't remember the solution? Had something to with excludes. Likewise the small airport I am now working on has a very wide flattened grass skirting around...

    A puzzle

    Here's a head scratcher. Not a problem I need solving but I thought it might be of interest. There is a specific small mountain top airport (2NC0) in North Carolina that is nothing more than a single landing strip in FSX. I've been there myself and I thought I would use Scruffy Duck's Airport...

    FSX Sim crashes....video?

    As I recall from some time ago there was a way to allocate(?) video memory(?) to assure that the video card would be able to keep up with the sim to prevent crashing. Forgive me... I'm no techie so that's the best I can do to describe what I think might be causing my problem. Back then I used...

    Delete airport

    I've found a mountain top airport (2NCO) in North Carolina, US that isn't in the ADE stock airports list. I've been there and it's quite a unique golf course/community and all that's there in FSX is a flat runway surrounded by grass I would like to build the actual airport using a Goggle Earth...

    FSX Suggestions please

    I'm working on a coastal city airport hoping to have AI Boat traffic exiting and entering a nearby inlet and returning by way of the intracoastal waterway to it's inland dock. Trying for as much realism as possible I used Google Earth images to route the inland waterway, as well as the existing...

    Yet another question about Boat Traffic

    What is the procedure for reconciling a Google Earth ship route with the FSX terrain? I have modified a coastal airport in ADE to conform to GE aerial views. Specifically, for the intracoastal waterway. I know for a fact there are differences between FX and GE. I would like to have traffic...
