Re: Typhoons over Lossiemouth

Thanks Mark, very nice looking.

Even a few birds in 9 Sqn will add variety to the base.

Re: Typhoons over Lossiemouth

The RAF website also states that 120Sqn is based at Lossiemouth flying P-8A, so I would take what's said on it with quite a large pinch of salt. My mate in an eng on 9sqn and they are all trache 1 at the moment. Ji9m My understanding is that 120 Sqn will be at Lossiemouth once the hangers for them ...

Re: MAIW MGAI Airbus A330 MRTT / KC-30A Conversion Support

Mark,
It looks like we missed including the lua script in the download package.

We will get the package updated but in the meantime I have attached a copy of the file for you.

Re: JYAI C-130J Specials

I could do but how many times have you flown with a tanker in the last 12 months? It takes time to add, set up in scenery and test. It also adds polygons. It's really a question of the overhead v the sustained benefit to the user. I personally never fly with a tanker. 99.9999% of my flying is low a...

If you are trying to use the default weather engine inside FSX it won't work. Microsoft has removed the servers that it tries to contact. Can I suggest you try a different weather program.

Re: no pilot in the cockpit!!

Hello In my opinion, I do not do what is right. Is there a complete procedure for converting fs9 / Fsx aircraft to P3DV4?

Re: Aircraft not departing

Also be aware that in FSX / P3D the aircraft.cfg needs to have a [Radios] section otherwise the aircraft just sits there.

Re: no pilot in the cockpit!!

Hello Question stupid but where is the modeldef.xml? Stupid Answer - it is wherever you put it :-) You needed to tell MCX where it was when you setup MCX. Assuming you are using P3D SDK then it usually is under SDK directory\Modeling\3ds Max\bin. To verify where it is open MCX and check Options/FS ...

Re: no pilot in the cockpit!!

If you have found the pilot in the Hierarchy Editor you just need to assign a visibility condition so the pilot only appears when the conditions are right. Make sure you have the following code in your modeldef.xml <!-- Show part like pilot if AI is running or moving triggered by beacon light at pus...

Re: no pilot in the cockpit!!

Ok, Does the pilot appear all the time in the FS9 model or only when the aircraft is moving? If it is the 2nd then you need to set the appropriate variable when you import the FS9 model. Under Options / SCASMReader make sure Use Conditions is set to UserSpecified. now when you import the FS9 model y...

Re: no pilot in the cockpit!!

Can you clarify your issue please?
Are you saying that you convert the model and that there is no pilot (but that there is one in FS9)

Or
You have a pilot but you need to know how to make the pilot appear only when the aircraft starts moving.

thanks

Re: The cavalry of sky.

I would second John & Martin,

From those shots the models look extremely well done and well developed.

As some one who has trouble modelling 2 boxes (believe me i have tried) I truly appreciate the the skills of people like you.
