Re: In Search Of (ISO) Static Aircraft Objects (FSX/P3D)

In my experience, Al, SAMM works really well and it outputs in exactly the format you're looking for. On top of that, you can input models from any version of Flight Simulator (FS8/FS9/FSX/P3D) and get a workable output. Sadly, Don is unwell and no longer actively supporting his programs but any pr...

Re: In Search Of (ISO) Static Aircraft Objects (FSX/P3D)

OK. Sounds like the barristers' full-employment act of 1978 is alive and well. So, I guess making updates/corrections/changes, etc. to Desmond Burrell's KNUW Growler scenery is probably some sort of violation, and I should expect the copyright police to come knocking on my virtual door? Oh well, I'v...

Re: In Search Of (ISO) Static Aircraft Objects (FSX/P3D)

I don't believe that static models are currently distributable for those types. Maybe the best thing to try is using SAMM by Don Grovestine http://stuff4fs.com/newpage.asp?Folder=SAMM . It is designed to turn models into statics. Give it a try. Right you are. That's the one with the 21-page user ma...

In Search Of (ISO) Static Aircraft Objects (FSX/P3D)

I am trying to populate a couple of military airfields with static aircraft parked in various locations. This is being done 1. To prevent the vast empty wasteland of most military airfields (Yes, I've used AI aircraft for many years, but that causes it's own set of problems). 2. Provide a visual ref...

Thanks Tim.

Now, I fell even more stupid (if that's possible) for neglecting the patently obvious. Sure wish PayPal had a way to send Beer.

Re: KNUW conversion to P3D V5 - Objects not showing

Al, I’m afraid I don’t believe I can share the converted library with you. The accepted protocol is that specific permission must be granted by the author of FS items for any alterations, and that’s taken to include updating the format for later sims. I have updated many Stinstrom airfields (with a...

Re: KNUW conversion to P3D V5 - Objects not showing

In that case, since I maintain a V4 system for some testing I do for a vendor, I believe I'll do my scenery development in that "world".

Much appreciate your time, and efforts.

Re: KNUW conversion to P3D V5 - Objects not showing

My problem is that the added object(s) from the Whidbey Objects Library.BGL don't appear within the flight simulator (P3D V 5.3 in this case). This is a well known compatibility issue with V5 in general, along with the way V5 handles (ignores) excludes... and does not just affect addon scenery obje...

Re: KNUW conversion to P3D V5 - Objects not showing

Thanks for your time, and especially your patience with a very unsophisticated (so far as scenery creation/management) user. After trying a bunch of things, and speaking with Jon at ADE development, I'm at a point where I think I may have "cornered" my problem? The Whidbey Objects Library....

Re: KNUW conversion to P3D V5 - Objects not showing

Al, Lets start with basic stuff. Do you have the P3D SDK installed? If so, have you set up MCX to use it? If the answer to either of those is no then that would explain why you are unable to convert the lib. Yes, I do have both the V4 & V5 SDK's purchased, licensed, and installed. on my machine...

Re: Support for F18's at Lemoore

Well, addressing the second issue first, possibly the easiest way to overcome the weapons issue is to modify the F-18s aircraft.cfg file with a text editor and substitute the name of either clean fit or tank fit models. Of course wouldn't have any weapon fits but it would be closer to what you want...

Thank you for your prompt and informative response. My apologies for the tardiness of my reply, but I was endeavoring to double-check everything to ensure I had my "ducks in a row". First, I can now report that MATRIX is functioning marvelously (at least so far as North America in general,...

Support for F18's at Lemoore

As a new user of MATRIX, I installed the Global and North America packages into my Prepar3d v4 environment. When I turn the traffic sliders all the way up to maximum value, I can only see a few (+- a dozen) F-35's on NAS Lemoore (KNLC). Where are the F-18''s? I'm just wondering what I've messed up i...

Re: Confused About Conversions

Thank you very much for getting back to me so quickly.

I have deleted all the "old" MAIW traffic .bgl's, and all looks well an proper.

I have the F-35's and F-18's at Lemoore as they should be.

It's much nicer than looking at empty apron'x.

Thanks again,

Re: Confused About Conversions

Simple question(s) from a simple-minded pilot. I have P3d V4 (64bit) running on Windows 10. No problem so far there. I have installed Matrix, along with some packages for the Western US (Specifically Lemoore, and F/A-18's). When I turn the traffic all the way up, I see that the MAIW traffic is parti...

removing static aircraft at KNLC

I have installed your package for LeMoore, and it is excellent. I would like to know how to remove the "static" aircraft which are parked at various locations about the ramps. I fly with USNVA.ORG and we use some of thos parking spots for our squadrons. Thanks.
