• 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.

Ground Poly Creation

Best 3D Design software

  • Total voters
Hey guys!
Just getting into scenery development and in need of some help about where to start with a ground poly. What software should I use? I have used Inventor but that’s not what is comparable with the sims. I have also heard of 3ds max and Blender but witch one would be the best for p3d v4? Feedback would be appreciate! I’m also looking for a “teacher” you could say. So If I have any questions I cannot find on here that I could reach out to would be amazing.

feel free to reach out to me
Thanks in advance

Free version of sketchup can do it, Im migrating more across to blender now , even some of my older eye candy builds are going over. There are loads of sketchup based tuts on line.

I think if you have free application try one or two tutorials and see if you have a preference.
