• 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 Ground Shear

Pilots are mostly familiar with wind shear, but MSFS has added another crash-causing hazard that I term ground shear, shown below. What causes it, and how do I get rid of it. Most
likely in this case I caused it somehow using ADE.

I can confirm that the shear was caused by adding flattens under some building models that included a falloff of -1. I previously reported that these flattens with a positive falloff distance caused all photogrammetry to disappear. In this case, the flattens are on the other side of the airport from where the ground shear occurs, and there is no apparent alignment relationship. Apparently there is some relationship between the falloff attribute in polygons and photogrammetry.
