• 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.

The gPoly idea...

If you stumbled into this forum you might be wondering what kind of tool gPoly is. I have to disappoint you at this moment, since gPoly is at the moment only an idea for a new tool and I would like to use this forum to sharpen the requirements and functionalities of this future tool a bit more.

gPoly is the working name for a new tool that will assist in the construction of ground polygons. I have two ideas coming together here, let me explain.

The first one is that for the NL2000 project I made a custom tool to create the ground polygons at Schiphol airport based on GIS data we had access to. What did tool did was take the data in a specific Dutch projection and then convert to SCASM source file to place them in FS. Currently we are working on Schiphol again for the next version of the project and I am planning to update the tool.

The second idea is a tool to help with the ASM tweaking that is now required for ground polygons. I once started with making some GUI, but that tool got stuck afterwards.

Since I know want to update the first tool anyway, I thought it might be possible to combine the two ideas and make one tool for ground polygons. So that is what the discussion in this forum will be about and that should result in a tool called gPoly (or whatever the final name will be). I am looking forward to your inputs.
