• 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 everyone ! so i tried to make PBR Rain puddles for my scenery . I have made PBR albedo on photoshop and metallic and normal texture too . I placed the puddles using 3dsmax and export as .X file and then load it in MCX and it loads up perfectly fine .i donot know when i export the puddles they do not show up in the simulator .

I have previous experience on making PBR puddle on another scenery and it worked fine there in similar way

Things that i have checked done correctly :
1)Placed on right co ordinates
2)the layer is above all other ground polygons
3)have made sure it has different GUID and friendly name

It has got something to do with layering issue i found out , it stays under my groundpolygon even though i have put multiple higher values than of my Gpoly . @arno Any guess if this could be related to MCX ?

Hello,
I finally did my first worked puddles in P3DV4.5 . From now i don't use PBR textures, but it change nothing on my issue i think.
I needed to set "destination blend to > One" to avoid the black track draw effect .
At this step all is working but the "take into account" setting is not doing the effect off when it is not raining ? in MCX and in the Sim.
At day, in some angles in can see the effect.
When realoaded the objet to make the screen, i have notice a warning message in MCX >Failed to load texture:GlobalEnvTest.dds . I don't know if it requested or normal.
Any idea on what i am doing wrong.

With Rain:
