• 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 Help starting to develop for Simconnect

Hi i am a advanced VB.net programmer and have a massive passion for flight sims . lately i've been interested in developing an addon that uses Simconnect. Is there any good guide to create a base to start developing (so how to make it to work with all simconnect versions and how to even start off to get in even into the add-on tab ). and where can i view all the things that are possible with Simconnect ? (is there any file or program to explore all the things that you could do with Simconnect just like FSUIPC has FS-Interrogate).

So... most importantly is a guide to start off a project !
Hitching a ride on this thread...

I have been doing some reading about ESP which I had never heard of before today. Is ESP Microsoft's answer to Lockheed-Martin's Prepar3D?

Prepar3D is ESP which LM purchased the rights for and updated. If you develop something for FSX it will also work in ESP and P3D (the 32bit versions at least).
