Re: RAF Coningsby for MSFS2020

John, this thread might get you to the right place. I have no knowledge of the process, either in FS9/FSX/P3D or MSFS, but I know that there are a lot of people over at FSDev who are playing with this stuff. https://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/threads/heres-how-to-write-you-own-modelbehavior-code.4510...

Re: Agusta Westland Wildcat

If ever a helicopter reinforced the principle that 'they only fly because the earth rejects them', the Wildcat is it. Aesthetically, it has all the appeal of a pavement pizza. However, this is a great rendition, John, and it's good to see it included in the modern military lineup. Shame the animatio...

Re: RAF Coningsby for MSFS2020

Manschy, I think the difference is the lighting/shading in MSFS which is far superior to the FS9/FSX/P3D engine. As mentioned above, I'm not a fan of what HDR does to colour rendition, but there's no doubt that the raytracing (or simulation thereof) works extremely well. I've seen several examples o...

Re: RAF Coningsby for MSFS2020

Your scenery looks great in MSFS, Ian. However, does anyone else get irritated by the tendency of HDR graphics to wash-out colours and give a filtered look to everything? It's something I first noticed with P3Dv4, but at least in P3D it can be turned off (and, IMO, is much better for it), but MSFS d...

Re: Goodbye to LODs?

I've seen this issue referred to over at FSDev. I don't do aircraft, so I don't take huge note of the issue, but there seems to be a consensus that the later sims running on modern hardware don't need LODs. I assume that's because graphics handling is that much better using DX12 and modern GPUs - an...

Re: Aldergrove

You've obviously done a lot if work on this - it's a shame it's for FS9 (from my PoV obviously!). Constructing approaches is great fun, IME, though having to reload FS after each change to see how it's working is a pain. I used to keep a 'vanilla' installation of FSX to make it as quick as possible,...

Re: Issue with John Stinstrom libraries

I think I have Instant Scenery 3 somewhere on an archive HDD. I'll have a look and see if I can make some sense of it - I can't remember ever using it! Edit: Indeed I do have IS3, but as I feared it does not work with FSX:SE. There was a fix produced, but that disappeared with the developer and the ...

Re: Aldergrove

If you're using a shortened 17-35 as a separate AFCAD for mil traffic only, using ADE you should be able to create complete IFR approach routings from well away from the airfield that achieve the exact flightpath you want to achieve (I'm assuming approach construction in FS9 works the same as in FSX...

Re: Lossiemouth and Brize Norton Projects

I'm not sure what issue you're trying to correct - I'm not able to access my P3D installation right now - but the radio callsign of all the active frequencies at RAF Brize Norton is 'Brize' (Radar, Approach, Zone, Director, Talkdown, Ops, Tower and Ground), and the ATIS frequency is 'Brize Info'.

Re: Aldergrove

In my day, the NW area was Learjet/Bombardier, so I've no idea what goes on there now. The area to the SE of the intersection was still the WW2 spectacle dispersals, and would be where we (C130) and the VC10s would park. The helos (Gazelle, Scout, Lynx, Wessex and Puma) would all be over on the west...

Re: Aldergrove

It's a long time since I was a regular military operator into EGAA, but I doubt things have changed hugely since I left the RAF. The helos generally left the airfield south of the main runway and, if they needed to go north, would cross the extended centreline a few miles out - unless it was an emer...

Re: Issue with John Stinstrom libraries

You will probably find that your computer is set to use a comma ( , ) as the decimal denominator. That won't work for MCX, so you would have to set it to use a period ( . ) instead. However, if you download the MAIW Global Library, as John linked to in his reply above, it includes all of the objects...

I'm sorry, Alex, but that post makes very little sense. I'm assuming that English may not be your first language, so you may be better writing your post in your own language and translating it via Google Translate, or something similar, and then put the translation here.
