• 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.

Blender Error when initializing SDK in Blender 2.83 and P3Dv5


For some reason I am getting an error when initializing the SDK in Blender 2.83 using the P3Dv5 SDK. It was working before but now this error comes up and I have no idea what it is telling me, any help would be appreciated, thanks

I think it was the whole 2.83 folder....to tell you the truth I've been having a lot of trouble with blender and the SDK since upgrading to P3Dv5, I'm not saying that that's the reason but I am really struggling with it now. Mind you I'm only learning so I could be doing something wrong

I'm a bit confused. You deleted the Blender 2.83 folder? So..... how do you use Blender if you deleted the Blender folder? I must be missing something, or are you essentially using the good 'ol "I can't fail if I don't try" philosophy? :rotfl:

Seriously though, it shouldn't be difficult to get the ball rolling with Blender. Install the latest version (2.83) and make sure that your shortcuts on the Desktop etc. are pointing to the latest version.
To be safe, go to %APPDATA%/Blender Foundation/Blender/2.83/config and delete p3d_locations.xml if it exists. Then go to %APPDATA%/Blender Foundation/Blender/2.83/scripts/addons and delete the Blender2P3DFSX folder. This should give you a fresh start.
Once you got all that verified, startup Blender, go to your settings->addons and install the Blender2P3DFSX toolset using the zip file.
