• 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.

P3D v4 Virtual Cockpit anomaly

I'm having issues with a gunfire effect, it's visible from the cockpit when the aircraft is on the ground, see below. But once it's airborne the muzzle flash disappears, although the tracer and the light casting part of the effect are still visible, see the second picture. Everything appears as expected in the external views on and off the ground. Has anyone got any idea what's going on?!

Unfortunately I can't help with your problem with the FX files. But I have a question for you. At the top of the cockpit you can see a mirror that partially reflects the runway. Is the mirror a mapped texture or does it actually reflect the surroundings?

Thank you for your answer!

I had read something about "Render-to-Texture" before, but I had never put that in context. But the topic is interesting and if there is a little more time left, I will deal with it. A working mirror in a Follow Me vehicle would be very cool :)
