• 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 with Library Creator - P3D V5 models using PBR textures

Hi, I've been creating scenery file using Blender -> export to .dae -> use ModelConverterX (V4.4 MDL models) to fix my texture files and add effects etc -> Library Creator to put my models in a library BGL file and place it in the sim using SimDirector and that all worked very well for me.

I thought I should tray BPR materials using the same workflow and link the PBR textures by choosing Is PBR = true for metallic with smoothness in the Alpha to get some reflections on the models, export MDL. Open Library Creator and import the model. The first time I do the it work fine but if I go back into Library Creator I get this error.

It now shows FSX in the bottom left corner and I can find no way of changing it back tp P3D v4.4

Help please.

Hi,

Would you be able to provide me the mdl for testing? Looks like the version is not identified correctly.

I sent you a PM with the files. A simple hanger I thought I would use to start with. I used the same .dea file previously without PBR and it worked.
