• 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.

FSX:SE Purchased FSX Gold Edition to use SDK with Steam Edition

Hi, I purchased FSX Gold to copy the SDK from disk 1 to use with Steam Edition since Steam Edition doesn't contain the full SDK, I know its on both disk 1 and the acceleration disk, don't know whether to copy the Sdk from the disk and overwrite the folder that is in steam edition or not.

Install the P3D SDK v1.4 into the default location... BUT,... if you have installed the Full FSX Gold Edition, along with the SDK for such (according to the guidelines within the above link), then you will not need to install the P3D SDK. You should be able to use scenery that you have created for both the FSE (Steam) and FSX.
I have 1.4, but I was going to use it for mission creation, I haven't seen anything about it just scenery placement.
