• 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 Ground Polygon Dry/Wet

Hello there guys, so i'm currently experimenting with ground polygons and the textures for it, I have finally figured out how to use PBR materials and now want to make the most use of them!

I`ve made this little piece as a test, which looks pretty good for a wet concrete, so the question is, how do I assign this one to being active when it's raining, and the other one when it's dry? Thanks a lot in advance!

I've read this manual but didn't really get what I wanted http://www.prepar3d.com/SDKv3/LearningCenter/modeling/modeling_materials.html

P.S.
I work in 3ds

I have not worked with PBR before but the simplest method that comes to mind for me is to use 2 separate models and use conditional visibility "MetPrecipitation" in SODE to place them in the sim.
Visit the SODE forum here for more info and have a look at this:
https://sode.12bpilot.ch/?document=the-xml-definition-file/conditionalvisibility

Quick questions:
What tutorials did you follow to create that object with PBR?
And what texture size is in use for that very small area? It looks like it might be quite a high res texture for such a small surface area.

Thanks a lot for that mate. Here`s the video I watched to get to know PBR in P3Dv4.4 more
. The texture Is 4096x4096, it's just a quick test, obviously I wont make em that big.
