• 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.

The images I believe in the default MSFS KINT has the images of airplanes burnt into the ground or apron textures if that makes sense...if you look at it say from a drone. Don't think It is in my bgl. When i run the list of exclusions in my airport..there are none and none listed in the xml of my KINT.

Thanks Jon.
They are in the photo scenery that underlies the airport. They are not in the XML - they exist only in the image. You would need to hide them with something like and apron
 
I mistakenly overwritten a XML of a project I was working on and would like to recover it. I have the bgl of the last saved version thankfully in my MSFS community file. Is this tool able to recover my xml?

It should be able to do that,
 
Downloaded msfsbglxml-1.0.20210217 this date and successfully used it. Thanks very much for this useful tool.

I was able to confirm that the bgl contains the ILS navaids (LOC GS DME) but MSFS will not render them if the <DeleteAirport> parameter for DeleteAllILS is true. The expected behavior is that, as quoted from SDK documentation, "use this element to remove features from any previously loaded airport (including those that are defined as part of the base sim)." In reality, the ILS is removed from the currently loaded airport as well.
 
I ran the prog and confirmed "yes" to the terms, but now the prog does not act when running the exe file, what am I doing wrong?
