Re: AI Bell 206 JetRanger source

I know I haven't posted in a while, I once got the FS2004 default Bell206 working as an AI, this was years ago and it flew like a Cessna lol. I tried it again on the FSX model, but it just sat there, I thought maybe it was the FSX model so I put the FS2004 AI version in and that too just sat there. ...

Re: Fire fighting foam idea

Hi Steve, We had a similar suggestion scheme where you got paid for the money saving idea if it was viable: At the time there was a lot of sickness, so when someone was off they had to bring someone in on overtime to take their place, I suggested a scheme where: If you didn't go sick in a month you ...

Re: Fire fighting foam idea

Hi Steve & ahs06, yes you are both right, it would cost too much to install and as you say they are working on better preventions to stop things like this happening again. On a side issue about ideas, I once suggested a safe cycle route to the airport not only for the workers but anyone else visitin...

Re: Bristrol Sycamore as AI?

@leuen,
Yes that is an oldish air file, I used it years ago but there are other air files that also work with ai, have you tried some from the helis here on MAIW?

It is a fancy name for an air file, you can rename it you know to make it sorter, like I said I used it years ago and renamed it.

Re: Bristrol Sycamore as AI?

I was thinking, I have Westland Dragonfly heli which is very similar to this Bristol Sycamore, might be a good substitute.

Re: Bristrol Sycamore as AI?

Yes Steve, I have seen that, on approach I've seen the props/rotas stop spinning then activate again, then stop and so on. I did read about the 3 stages of animation as you mentioned when I was searching, but as you previously said, "Is it worth it?" I only gave it a try to help the op but got intri...

Re: Bristrol Sycamore as AI?

Hi Again Steve, I forgot I have the MCX model converter, when I placed the heli in it and used the animation control, the rotas turned. Now they probably turn because it is a flyable, so not sure if and how to rectify it, also I found a code through searching for making props turn, could that be edi...

Re: Bristrol Sycamore as AI?

Hi Steve, If you remember I had this problem on another heli, I gave up in the end.
You say flyable models do not have this animation, yet I've changed many a flayable to use as AI and they have worked, or have i misunderstood?

Re: Bristrol Sycamore as AI?

Well I got it flying but... I had this problem on another heli, no rotation on the props.
I'm not sure how to rectify this it might be part of the model.

Re: FSX lost the default map.

Well I copied the Map.dat from FS9 as it seemed to be the same, but still no joy.
I did get round it by slewing in the sim and using Plan-G, I could see the aircraft icon on that map.

Re: FSX lost the default map.

Hi Steve,

I looked on my FSX Gold disks but couldn't find the map or the Uires, it is probably hidden inside one of the zips.

In the Uires folder in my sim I have Map.DAT 17,236kb dated 12/06/2006

FSX lost the default map.

I don't know why this has happened but I can't access the default map in FSX. When I click to bring it up nothing happens, the reason I want it is sometimes I like to fly a seaplane so I slew the icon on the map to the desired spot. Also I use it the same way to do a water afcad, I slew the aircraft...

Re: Modification of Orbx scenery.

Hi Steve,
Sorry for late reply, I got it sorted now, I found the file that has the statics, it also has a few other things in it but I can live without them, but it cured the problem, no statics anywhere even on other airfields.

Hi Steve, When I have ever tried this on XP I'm in the UK, mostly it flies within the UK but at times it has flown the AI over to Europe, once it did select an airfield on the east coast of the USA. I have tried letting the AI fly a heli on XP but it is horrendous, it just can't do it, the heli flip...

Random AI Flight Plans Question?

I have X-plane 11 installed as well as FS, I use FS more times that XP by the way. In XP you can select an aircraft then select AI to fly it, I use this a lot, one of the reasons is the flight plan seems random, a popup will show where the aircraft it going to fly to, I have no control of it as I've...

Re: minimum height in a flight plan

On this subject of low level AI flightplans, if I'm not mistaken if you set a VFR plan at low level and there are obstacles near by the AC will fly in to them. If you set it to IFR at low level then ATC will tel the AC to fly higher till it clears the obstacle then it will return to the lower level ...
