Scenery development for both XBox and PC

I develop airports for both the PC and the XBox version of MSFS and I want to share this bit of information that I came across.

We all know about those pink textures in MSFS... Ok, it turns out that some of the apron textures included in the PC version of MSFS does not work with the XBox version and they show up as pink. while the other textures work simply fine See the attached picture.pink-texture.jpg

It turns out that any texture marked as "cracked" in the Material Editor does not work in the XBox version of MSFS. Those are the ones that show up as pink. If you switch the material over to anything else but "cracked" then it works simply fine!

Keep this in mind if you are a developer and you develop airports for both versions of the sim. Very handy to remember! :-)
