• 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 Editing painted line type

Hi,
I want to create a painted line larger than those offered in the editor. Anyone know where the source file (xml file I guess) for painted lines types is located?
THANKS.
 
It Is not possible, the Painted Lines are hard coded

Check this post out. You have to create a material with the line you want to draw in the pixel range for a EDGE-SERVICE-DASHED type. That's the widest single line available.

Import the material in your project and apply it to that type of line in the properties menu>optional material

Post in thread 'Painted lines - taxi, edge lines, etc - can we create a custom texture sheet for custom lines?' https://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/t...ure-sheet-for-custom-lines.449721/post-879301
 
Thanks but this is what I did with the non-movment type, which is also wide. Definitely, the result is not convincing!

When you look in Object/PaintedLine the scale is 1.00, just put 1.25 or even 1.50 for the line to be thicker!
 
Thank but I had already tried, without success. The painted line object is not resizable.

Check the surface type of the material you created. Make sure you have it set to paint or asphalt. It looks like that because it's taking the surface type of whatever is underneath
 
Thanks but no success.
Painted lines, just like aprons and projected mesh, are resolution limited by the resolution of the photogrammetry under. They get better by increasing the terrain LOD but that affects performance.
