• 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.

FSXA Illuminate Just The Letters

I have created the terminal for KCSG Columbus, GA as part of the airport that a friend is doing. I do Sketchup and he doesn't. The terminal has turned out great, but I want to illuminate ONLY the letters on the WELCOME signs on the canopy. I made them a texture in a rectangle and can make LM textures for them and they light up beautifully with no flickering which I originally had when they were images NOT textures. When I first created the canopy which is a separate module as are the parts of the terminal all grouped when I completed them all, I illuminated the canopy by itself in Model Converter X Version 1.5 and had just the letters back when the Welcome signs were images. I think that I had the LM as png but when I went back to do that after making them textures to stop the flickering in FSX(A) they would not do it again but came up as "garbage" That is when I just made rectangles for the signs. Anybody got any ideas. I have illuminated all the window and glass door textures no problem as well as LM textures for the pavers block under the canopy so that it is illuminated from the lights above in appearance and I think they look great in FSX. I'm open to any suggestions. I can attach the file of the canopy module if you tell me what format you want it in. Sketchup or DAE or what. Thank in advance. I always get good help here to my quandries.
