• 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.

Prepar3D - Converted bgl files with Model Converter X

This question is for a friend of mine who doesn't speak English and lives in another country (other than Canada).

I convert bgl files made for FS9 to FSX (using Model Converter X) and everything shows in the Prepar3D of a local buddy, no problem. When this friend in he other country tries to do the same thing, and he has an unbelievable system, none of the objects show in his P3D.

I sent him some of my bgl files that work fine here and they don't appear in his P3D either.

Does anyone have a suggestion or has experienced something similar? He has checked all the settings (scenery density, etc.) and his graphics card driver - all seem to be OK. It can't be a country thing, eh?

Thanks

Fern

Are all textures included? Missing textures can result in missing objects.

And of course did he check if the BGL file is in an active scenery area :)

Thanks, Arno

The think is more complicated than that, I think. If I convert exactly the same bgl here and sent him the resulting bgl, it works. We went as far as I sent him the same Model Converter X, and when he uses it to convert the same bgl, the one he generates still doesn't show... We'll keep looking.

Thanks

Based on that I would suspect the compilers that you each have linked your versions of MCX to are different. I would check the SDK versions for the two systems.
