• 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.

Problem open static model "no/valid BGL Section"

Hi Everyone,

I´m a SAMM-Newbie, and starting to create my first static Aircraft with SAMM (Version 2.2.10).
The Creation of the static model works fine (as far as I can evaluate this)




But when I try to open the created static model, I get the following Errormessage:



What am I doing wrong?
I really would like to use SAMM instead of programming AI-Traffic to see some other planes when lynding at an airport.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

The explanation for the error is that you appear to have converted a FSX aircraft but you have found your way into a FS9-only routine in SAMM.

But the main problem appears to be a misunderstanding of the intended use of "or open static model". This function is intend to re-open a previously-converted static model for re-conversion - and the code anticipates only FS9 aircraft. (That's a valid issue and I'll address it in the next release). But it has nothing to do with the usability of the converted static aircraft nor, I suspect, is that what you were trying to do.

If you want to view the converted aircraft, you should use the Viewer in the bottom left-hand corner of the dialog or, place the aircraft and examine it in Flightsim.
Hi Gadgets,
Thanks for the feedback. This was a misunderstanding on my side.
I did go ahead with placing the converted models and it was a success, as you can see here.


Thanks for your support!
