• 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.

P3D v4 compile error

A good friend of mine is having a problem. When he goes to compile his project as mdl OR bgl.... he gets the message that FSDS cannot find xtomdl. We have gone to preferences and made sure FSDS is pointed to hisSDK... it is correct. This occurs whether looking to FSX or P3D. I even sent him a copy of my xtomdl and we placed it in the same place and allowed overwrite. Same problem.
He has uninstalled and reinstalled FSDS. What gives?
What was found by my friend, and I realized this after the fact, he navigated all the way to xtomdl when FSDS just wants yo to nav to the folder where xtomdl IS. Problem solved.
