Will there will be profiling tool similar to X-Plane profiling tool that could help third party creators to troubleshoot performance issues?
This would be good to get a tool that tells us function or call that is utilizating each thread for example.

Is it planned to make the double-sided materials to not be transparent to light? Currently if one side of the material is lit, the other one on the opposite side will be lit too.

Is it planned to make the default vector data such as street-lighting and roads excludable?

Is it planned to bring the projected mesh resolution up to par with imported scenery objects and keep original normal map and not merge it with the default in-sim one?

While I know it was originally stated that Blender was not going to be officially supported, have there been any thoughts about changing that mind or maybe helping FBW who are struggling with the exporter/importer development?

I would like to know if it would be possible to have the sim populates the aircraft and liveries appropriately to each gates. Will there be a feature that allows us to assign specific ICAO airline codes to Airport’s Gates and Parking Spots? That way the sim can do an ICAO airline code matching between the liveries and the allowed parking spots and gates that they will be spawned. Perhaps matching the ATC_Parking_Code parameters in the aircraft.cfg files.

That way, we can add more immersion to the sim, where only specific Airlines are able to spawn and park at certain gates at a specific airport, rather than randomly distributed throughout the entire airport.

Hi, I want to create a new airport via SDK, but there are a few problems with it:

  • Power Poles, lights, … which cannot been removed from the original scenery
  • AI traffic which cannot been removed from the original scenery
    Please put this on your SDK agenda to get these items removable - thanks :slight_smile:

Non-removable power poles

Traffic running thru the airport runways
