• 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.

    Looking for Project

    Hey, I am a 3D modeller from Germany who is looking for a project. My main software is blender, although for texturing, I use subject painter, which allows me to create high precision pbr textures. I have gathered plenty of experience creating sceneries for msfs2020 and high detailed aircraft...

    MSFS How many coordinate systems does an MSFS aircraft need?

    If I have counted correctly, there are at least three involved in aircraft creation and debugging: Firstly, the 3D model. The SDK says In the Z axis the center should be approximately where the water level would be. Meaning that positive Z is upwards. Which matches what most people would call...

    [Paid project] Looking for people to build a new aircraft model for MSFS2020 and/or X-Plane

    We are currently designing and building an all-electric two-seat aircraft. The physical prototype is well underway, but we also want to create a realistic flying model for MSFS2020 and/or X-Plane. We have the CAD models of the aircraft so can supply that side of things. But we need help...

    MSFS Liveries

    Good morning, I'm interested in designing custom liveries for some of the default GA aircraft (C152, C172, etc). I've looked online for hours for tutorials, and it seems like the only thing I can find is how to make liveries for airliners. Is there a method for making custom liveries for GA...

    CFG Files

    Good evening, everyone! At first, I joined this site to learn about designing and editing airports when I used P3d, which had very outdated versions. However, since FS2020 uses satellite imagery along with the fact that buildings are solid objects now, so you can land on the roof of any...

    MSFS Aircraft Design

    Good morning, I am looking to get into 3d aircraft design with the SDK for FS2020 (so I'm a total beginner) I was able to find the .blend file I was interested in, but I'm not sure where to go from there. At this point, it's only a 3d model with textures, but no sounds, panels, or aerodynamic...
