• 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.

If you plan to share then mdl files are depreciated and should be replaced with gltf.

If you have ADE and preferably FSX but possibly a P3D then you can generate basic XML for the airport and use that as the basis of the source xml in a FS2020 package. The FS2020 schema seems to accept most FSX and P3D XML but reports some errors. We are working on a version of ADE for FS2020.

Removal of autogen and scenery objects can be achieved in the FS2020 Editor

If you need more information please ask
I now have the Developers tools. The Menu is displayed on the upper left corner. I will now proceed to design my home base Airport, will try to use the FSX design and will let everyone know the results. Thanks again for the help
