• 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.


Hi all,

I'm new to ADE. Currently, I'm making my first trials to edit sceneries.

As a first 'exercice', I tried to add a custom object in EBBR from JustSim. I can load the airport, edit data, but when I want to compile the result I always get the error:


Listing the Navaids, I can see that there are 2 'stock' ILS for both rw 01/19 ( 2 occurrences of IBM and 2 of IBX). It seems that 2 of them are placed somewhere outside the airfield and set to 108.00 Mhz as a kind of deactivation (I guess it's to avoid conflicts).
But I couldn't find a way to *remove* these duplicates so ADE can compile. They are greyed out as stock items that cannot be edited.

I tried 'Tools/Remove Stock Data' with no success.

Does anyone know a solution for this, or should I forget the idea of working that way ?

Thanks ! :)
Install ProKey if you haven't already (on the downloads page, along with the name and reg code), go to Tools/Raw Data View, open the airport, open the airport again if needed, open the relevant runway (if needed), find those ILSs, and change the Lock Status from Stock to None.
