Re: Sinking AI at RJOI

It seems that we are in agreement of the cause and fix. Please remember what I said earlier that any Asia update WILL re-add the ALT file plus overwrite the amended afcads so you need to make sure that you have backups to readily re-install them. You may well have a good point about Orbx. The issue ...

Now, now, Pete. You should know that it is always your fault and the Evil Empire is not to blame.

Re: MAIW EAI Boeing 707/E-3/E-6 Family Conversion Support

The cruise speeds and max speeds are of different types. The cruise speed is KTAS (Knots True Air Speed) whilst the max speed is KIAS (Knots Indicated Air Speed). KIAS varies at different altitudes, due to the difference in air pressure. As Tim indicates in his reply one of the big flaws in the AI s...

Re: Sinking AI at RJOI

Tim, It does sound like you have done some testing and it does sound like Orbx is indeed the cause of your problem. I say this purely as nobody else has reported the same issue that you are having. It sounds like you you might need to alter the helo afcad to the same height as the main base. One thi...

Re: Sinking AI at RJOI

Tim, that is not a problem. Coming from the FS9 world CVX files are one of the things that I have not had to mince around with - yet. I am curious as the helo afcad. Is this part of the Matrix as well? What is it called? However, I then re-read your reply and noticed that you said you set your afcad...

Re: Sinking AI at RJOI

You may be teaching me something here that I have not touched upon yet, but as far as i know you don't need to touch the cvx. The alt file is purely a height file which simulates altering the default built in height to the same height as the afcad. So in theory if you have the alt file in place you ...

Re: Adding new airports in AIFP

That is very true, Jim. In this case though I was trying to keep it simple for Brandon as he wants to create flight plans for airfields that don't exist in game. Therefore as he has to create it/them to achieve what he wants I was describing his full process. If he starts to think that he can create...

Re: NH-90

Thanks, John. I think that this is all he needs. Now on a follow on question, do you know if anybody is doing any full packs, like Giorgio did with the Italian Army, at the moment? Firstly, as it is a question that is going to get asked, and if there are any air arms not being planned it might inspi...

Re: Adding new airports in AIFP

I shall try to make this as short as possible. However, please note that the steps are not necessarily as simple as they are short. 1. Create an afcad in AFX or ADE or some other afcad creating tool. 2. Once the afcad is in an active folder get AIFP to find all third party afcads. 3. Create a flight...

Re: NH-90

John,
In that folder are:-
RANNL_ST_14p_M1
RANNL_ST_20p_exttankA_M1

rather than :-
RANNL_14p_M1
RANNL_20p_exttankA_M1

I think that what Jim needs is to know whether to amend the cfg or rename the models.

Re: Aircraft shade/shelters

I think that you haven't quite grasped the way the lib system works. Objects are combined into a lib with objects of a similar subject. Once an object bgl is loaded into an active folder then any scenery that is loaded AFTER the object bgl on FS startup can call an object from that lib. The objects ...

Re: NH-90

I can help with the Italian Army ones.
They were 3 textures that were left in the package by accident. The package has since been updated with those 3 removed, so you are not missing anything there.

Re: A brand new MS Flight Simulator is coming...

The key thing here is the unknown which will only be discovered as time goes on. My best hope is that the Azure AI can be called upon to supplement your local AI rather than supplant it. The main reason for this is that I can't see MS getting into the admin business to manage third party addons for ...

Obviously a lot more info on the system and how it works has to be released so whilst I am sceptical at the moment I remain hopeful that my initial thoughts are in error. The more I thought about this the more niggling doubts that I have. For instance, IF everybody signs onto a cloud server to play,...

Re: A brand new MS Flight Simulator is coming...

I have just read a piece on this on Neowin. It does confirm that it will be released on PC first. What it also mentions is 'Azure AI to build a world vastly more comprehensive than its predecessors'. Now obviously I am reading between the lines here and making a lot of guesswork but the name being A...
