• 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.

I deleted the buildings or taxi signs but they are still in the Sim

There are several reasons that this can happen

  • There was a bug in versions prior to 1.30 that stopped ADE finding all the stock buildings and objects at an airport when the runways were running in a North-South direction. This has now been fixed so you need to be running 1.30 or later
  • To see all the buildings and other objects in both ADE and FS you need to set the scenery complexity to Extremely Dense in both. Only at this level will everything be shown.
  • You did not start from a stock airport or loaded an airport designed with another tool. Since different tools work differently we cannot be sure that ADE will handle everything the same way the other tool does.
  • You have more than one custom version of the airport present and that airport file may be at a hight priority than the one created by ADE. ADE automatically excludes stock objects and taxi signs. It does not exclude custom objects or signs. If there is another file with a copy of the airport in it then the signs or objects from that file may be displayed by FS even though ADE have excluded all the objects and signs from the stock airport
