Is there a forum for Airport Design Editor for MSFS?

I am trying to set up a project and cannot find information on what to enter in the box "Output Folder" in the Project section of F20 Project Properties?

Sorry to have taken up so much space but I must have clicked the wrong area when I wanted to reply.

I am starting to have some success in modifying an existing airfield with the help of ADE. I would like  to edit the airfield to resemble its appearance thirty years ago, which is when I used to fly to there in a microlight biplane. The biplane was based at nearby EGHP Popham which I will also edit. What a pleasure to see these airfields again in a simulation.

The airfield I am working on first is EGAJ Chilbolton and I have succeeded in creating an ADE project for it using an MSFS Bgl. It needs more editing but I wonder if someone could help me with the following:

When I click BUILD PROJECT it compiles the work and I then get a validation failure message about a missing folder and file. On pressing any key to continue I sometimes get the message "Copy to community folder" and sometimes I get the error code -1073741510. Repeating the BUILD PROJECT procedure once or twice more will produce the "Copy to community folder" message.

This is probably due to the early stage of development of this incredibly valuable programme. It appears to be functioning sufficiently well to be useable, but I would like to be sure before I spend a lot of time on it.

I could not find a way to attach a screenshot of the error message so have copied and pasted it below.

project XML: M:\BL Folders\BL Projects\Test\Test.xml
temp dir:    M:\BL Folders\BL Projects\Test\_PackageInt
output dir:  M:\BL Folders\BL Projects\Test\.

Press any key to continue . . .

 

All the above still does not look right with the total absence of formatting and word wrap, I hope it can be read OK without too much trouble.

Thank you very much Paul, unfortunately the link you have provided does not offer guidance about the PackageBuilder validation errors and what can be done about them.

The two "[Package Validation]" messages regarding "Marketplace Data" and "Business.json" can be ignored. They have no effect on your project.

For more info about this, and anything else about ADE for MSFS 2020, try here: https://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/forums/airport-design-editor-for-msfs-2020.160/

Have fun!

Crossed posts with Jim here, Lumbco, I understand your post well enough, but that site is the  "go-to" site for help regarding ADE, and any potential problems which one might encounter. Jim also echoes this. You need to dig!

Thank you very much everyone who has helped me with my problem.

I am really relieved to find that I was doing nothing wrong. My project will very likely throw up other problems but I do know now that they will not be related to the validation messages!
