• 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 FlyByWire Simulations is looking for modelers!

    FlyByWire Simulations is seeking experienced modelers to assist in our efforts of modeling the A320/A320neo family for MSFS. If you are interested in working on one of the most popular aircraft in MSFS, and giving back to the community, here's your chance! Here's a few examples of our own...

    MSFS Where is the code for "aircraft logic"?

    All of the default fly-by-wire and default autopilot code, as well as flaps logic, is handled internally by the base simulator code (which cannot be modified). You can only enable/disable these, and tweak them via limited CFG options. Which is why, if you're developing anything above a very...

    MSFS Where is the code for "aircraft logic"?

    Are you referring to tweaking the default A320neo or our A32NX? Our developers are actively working on custom autothrust, fly-by-wire, and autopilot systems, and have already made a lot of progress. These are coded in WASM (C++), partially auto-generated from Matlab models. Flap behavior is...

    MSFS Complex Hydraulic System

    I'd recommend against using the default hydraulic (and electrical) "system" included by MSFS by default - they are far from functional and very limited in scope. The best way to go about implementing these systems is to bypass the default behavior entirely, and write systems in C++ or Rust that...

    MSFS Adding an additional Asobo Gauge to a blank space on an Asobo aircraft Panel - as a MOD (or as an additional Cloned Plane with the added gauge)

    It's possible (we've done it on our A32NX to add the EFB and printer), but quite tricky. One of our devs is working on a proper Blender importer/exporter, but as it is not complete yet, we have a script to manually edit the GLTF as part of our build process. I didn't write the code for this...

    MSFS Reading a setting in aircraft.cfg file from within JS

    It is persistent. Regardless of restarts/reloads, the data remains there - that's how we store user settings in our FMC.

    MSFS Reading a setting in aircraft.cfg file from within JS

    Local storage through HTML/JS gauges can easily be accomplished - our code for it can be found here: https://github.com/flybywiresim/a32nx/blob/master/A32NX/html_ui/Pages/A32NX_Utils/NXDataStore.js Keep in mind there is a global 2.5MB limit to the storage. Also, for the original question...
