• 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 Flying ILS approach on autopilot

    Hello experts, I am developing an aircraft that has the ability to fly an ILS approach using the autopilot. The LOC mode guides the aircraft on the lateral axis (localizer) and the APR guides it on both lateral and vertical axis (approach mode, handling both localizer and glideslope). To engage...

    MSFS MSFS2020 New Airport Glideslope and DME setting problem

    Hello everyone, In FSX, I designed a private airport between the mountains with ADE. I wanted to make the same airport in Msfs2020. Before moving on to the objects of the scene such as polygons, terrain leveling, taxiways, aprons, buildings, I wanted to design the positions and frequencies of...

    MSFS Is there a chance getting rid of ILS (airport is decommissioned)?

    Hi all, I think I've read somewhere (quite a while ago) about a planned possibility and even deleting stock ILS data via MSFS' development mode. But, at the present it seems that even ADE isn't able at least to read such navaids as it did in the past and I'm sure, Jon would have included such...

    MSFS Settings ILS Course when configured as NAV3

    Hello, Do you know how to set the ILS course when it is defined as NAV3? I know how to set the frequency, all the event IDs are available for this (NAV3_RADIO_SET_HZ) but I can't find a way to set the ILS course. Needless to say SetSimVar does not work because SetSimVar is designed to be used...

    So i believe i read somewhere in the forum ADE is unable to compile ILS approachs, at least it fails on me every single time. I read early in the forum from last year if i clicked approach mode and deleted the approach paths this may enable it but alas it doesn't work. When i compile and edited...

    MSFS Adding Radios

    Hello experts, I am working on an aircraft in which I would like to have the ILS receiver mapped as NAV 3, just like in the Asobo A320. In order to achieve this, I modified the RADIOS section of the systems.cfg file as follows: But it doesn't seem to work :( In my code, when I read the sim...

    ILS heading is not available for custom ILS

    MSFS Localizer issues after update

    Hi! After an update (seems like WU4) something happened to the localizers on ILS approaches. Before everything worked fine, but now the localizer seems to stay always way too far right with every runway no matter what I put for the coordinates in the XML file. This doesn't happen with all...

    MSFS VOR1 is not ILS

    As I dig deeper and deeper into the Asobo A320 code to understand how all this works, I noticed that VOR1 and ILS are different in this A320. In fs9/FSX/P3D, the ILS frequency was set by setting VOR1 frequency, so ILS and VOR1 was not independent. In MSFS, you can set a frequency for the ILS and...

    MSFS Fixing broken default ILS (PMI)

    Hi all I have a question: The ILS in PMI (RWY24L) is not set-up properly. When you follow the glideslope you come in way too high and end up landing half way down the runway. Larger planes are unable to stop in time and overshoot the runway. Is there any way this can be corrected by myself in...

    MSFS Problems with ILS (SOLVED)

    Folks, I have a short question. Is it possible to modify a single ILS in the XML? I am getting problems with the stock runway ILS data for the 08. The 26 works perfect but the ILS antenna 08 is in real and within the Sim placed beside the runway, not at the end. So the plane lands wide away...
