• 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 Coordinates of nearby planes.

I have looked through the simvars doc and do not see a variable that sticks out.

What I am wanting to do is, get the last and long of other nearby planes or all. Then I can use those coordinates to plot them on a map.

Obtaining traffic information was not part of SimConnect in FSX but rather a traffic interface that you could link to inside a gauge.

Can you possibly point me to an example?

I am just started to work with SimConnect, but know that you can access data of nearby SIMOBJECTs by ID - PLANE LATITUDE and PLANE LONGITUDE
Little Navmap can read parked airplanes, so you could just check out how they made it in the code.
