• 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 Cleaning Up Large Areas of Overdense Vegetation

    Hi everyone, There is an issue with the automatic vegetation near my home airport and I am wanting to clean it up. I think the problem stems from the fact that the color of the satellite imagery abruptly changes, and the sim is adding way more autogen trees than it should. You can see in the...

    Autogen Appears Despite Exclude Autogen Polys Used in ADEX

    Good day all, I'm hoping you can help me out with this, because I've run out of ideas. Long story short, I'm building a fictional country in FSX full of custom airports and cities using ADEX. For about two years now, everything has gone swimmingly- I've even been building road systems with...

    QGIS and ScenProc help needed

    Hello, I've been using the better part of my COVID-related downtime to create autogen scenery for Northern Michigan in P3DV5. After watching countless tutorials and reading the manual I've managed to get three shape-layers into QGIS - two for my forests and one for the buildings (see attached...

    Landclass appearing above imagery when near?

    i was doing a huge project covering the whole island of bali, im using SbuilderX for the photo Imagery and Scenproc for the autogen, it work all well before, but i see that the "coastline" part of the old imagery is really bad, so i take the new one from sbuilderX with ZL13 and make that feel...

    Trees in the water

    Hi, I've created autogen for the Rhone-Alps area of France using OSM data from https://download.geofabrik.de/europe.html for this area. It's generated great apart from in the sim on the coast it's putting trees in the water. Any idea why this might be? Many thanks

    P3D v3 Adding Veggies, any interest?

    A problem I've been having is that OSM and USGS data for most US cities is incomplete, so adding vegetation AGN (for example), becomes a challenge. I have figured out how to edit shapefiles to add vegetation zones (or any other vector data) so that sceneproc spits out AGN with not just houses...

I read different thread's about the subject here and I tried all possible solutions with the different terrain polygon's (ExcludeAutogen, Flatten exclude autogen, Flatten Mask class Map ExcludeAutogen, ...) non of...

    Cannot eliminate autogen objects

    I modified the LOIR Reutte / Austria airfield from the Flightport page with ADE 1.76.6715 to use it in P3D V4. Everything works fine except using the runway in the usual way. There are some trees standing on the runway. They are placed in this position by Autria Professional HD. When this...

    Library Objects (SimDirector) its dissapear in long rage

    Hello! When I create a scenario in SimDirector, placing trees, houses, people and animals. These look great on my Scenery. What bothers me is that these objects disappear only when you are at a very distant distance, making the stage heavier and consuming more FPS. On the other hand, the...

    Compiling doesn't save my changes

    Hi! Im very new to ADE and scenery in general. I have found my local airport for fsx but I want to use it in P3D v4.4. I have used it in earlier versions of P3D v4, but now it doesnt seem to work anymore. I think I am doing something wrong with the BGL file and ADE. The thing is there is a bit...

    Hi guys! I am trying to add some custom created 3d objects to my scenery, but when i do so, autogen disappearing somehow. Bounding boxes are ok, so not them are the problem. What are your thoughts about this? Thx!

    Draw distance for .bgl

    Hi, I don't understand much about this part of scenery development yet, so don't judge me... I've been using SimDirector to place some buildings on my scenery, like autogen. Find it very easy to use. I guess there's a problem about using this: As you can see, my improvised autogen is loading...

    P3D v3 Missing Tree Polygons

    I can confirm that this issue does not occur in FSX. Have not tested P3D 1 or 2. TLDR; Either the horizontal polygons (canopy) or vertical polygons (side view) of my tree models appear, but never both. I started attempting to create fuller autogen tree models; cross trees aren't as voluminous...

    Ortho + Autogen

    Hello everyone, I'm curious as to if there is a way to add auto-gen to ortho scenery? I'm looking to cover large areas using SbuilderX. Currently using P3D v3.4 with Orbx Global, Vector, LC. It would truly be wonderful if I could substitute the Orbx ground textures with ortho, but leave the...

    FSX P3D Autogen not showing in FSX

    Hello, i created a scenery with the P3D SDK. I want to make it available for FSX as well. For most things this works out fine: groundpolies, object and photoscenery are showing up in FSX as expected. But there is no Autogen! What can I do to make it appear as well? I was using the P3D...

    P3D v3 [SOLVED] Custom Autogen Objects do not show up. Suppress Vegetation.

    I've noticed issues with calling custom autogen objects from P3Ds default.xml. They simply do not show up and also supress all autogen vegetation within the same cell. Below is a scenery that I created for FSX with custom lightpoles and vehicles called via the default.xml. Works fine (light...
