• 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.

ADE add an rectangle exclusion polygon

Hi there

I would like to ask if it is possible to add a function to make exclusion polygons from a helper shape.

My wish is to create a helper shape (mostly a rectangle), then using the new function "make polygon" instead of already existing "make apron".

With that option it would be more easily to make rectangular exclusion polygons.

Or does somebody have a trick on how to make quickly rectangular exclusion polygons?

Kind regards and keep healthy...

Alex, LSZH
Depending on what you need.
See section 9.2.5 Exclusion Polygons in the ADE manual...
Or in the ADE manual section 14.12 Exclusion Rectangles...

This kind of exclusion, acutally in ADE its named "terrain polygon" because not only exclusion but also like landclass etc can be made by those polygons.

I am using it to make those runway strip "mask class map exclude autogen".
