• 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.

Is there an option to change the transparency/colors of GPs like the other objects? I could not see it in the color list.

Transparency is a function of texture. Or, you can specify the RGBA for any GP. See the bottom of Page 5 of the ADE-GP User manual.

I think he might mean in the ADE display, not in the sim?

On re-reading the initial post, I suspect you are right, Tom.

That is correct. I don't see the option in the colors list. It would be very good to have as it will allow better placement of taxiway edges.

OK, so you can change a given apron's (or ground poly's) transparency by using Shift O and O, and you determine any new apron's transparency in the Settings/Color dialog. But AFAIK there is no way to make all aprons transparent at one time, right? Not a request, just a question.

Tom if I understand correctly then no. It might be possible to do it via multiple edit but I have not made the transparency property accessible to the editor
