    FS2004 help with maxscript for hangar

    I'm not sure why it came out like that. When I recreated the script using macrorecorder, I got better numbers for those lines: select $.baseObject.verts[#{11..12}] select $.baseObject.verts[#{9..10}] Those vertices correspond to the ones being collapsed making the roofline. Eric Edit...

    FS2004 help with maxscript for hangar

    I'm attempting to script some of my monotonous work (basically the purpose of scripting) using GMax and maxscript. The first task I was looking to script was taking a box that I previously created and sized and turning that box into a simple hangar shape with its sides UVW Mapped, unwrapped and...

    FS2004 Need some help with approaches

    OK I performed the extended compile and took the original AFCAD and placed that under addon scenery/scenery and took the apr bgl generated and placed that under the scenery/generic/scenery folder (not sure if it has to go there). Worked great! That was the piece of the puzzle I was missing...

    FS2004 Need some help with approaches

    I'll try the extended compile. Haven't used that before. I'm still on windows xp sp3 and I place my files under the addon scenery/scenery folder so those shouldn't be issues. I'm hopeful about the extended compile. I'll let you know. Eric

    FS2004 Need some help with approaches

    Another question I have is how to create an ILS DME? I noticed I couldn't find one for runway 8R. I thought that should be automatically created when the box was checked, but I can't find one for it as an icon on the airport diagram. Eric Edit: To summarize my issue, I believe FS2004 isn't...

    FS2004 Need some help with approaches

    The GPS is only showing 8/26 when there should be 8L & 8R and 26L and 26R. Also, I'm not seeing all runways when selecting a starting position. When I select runway 8 on the list, I go to 8R. See added pics. Thanks for the help! Eric

    FS2004 Need some help with approaches

    Hi all, I was asked to help with some approaches into KIAH. I know how to import the default waypoints and have done so. When I found Jim Vile's description on ILS approaches, I tried to follow it the best I could. I updated the approaches for ILS 08R and 26L, but they aren't showing properly...

    FS2004 ModelConverterX causing my computer to reboot

    Arno, I was able to get my computer to reboot. Nothing was attached. I opened a model file on my desktop and the textures weren't available. I used the search function to find my Addon Scenery/scenery folder for my model. It found the files, and when I closed the GUI, my computer rebooted. Eric

    FS2004 ModelConverterX causing my computer to reboot

    Arno, It reboots without warning. I have a test I can do that I believe may be the culprit. I have an IRONKEY USB device I put my Flightsim files on and I'm thinking that may be the reason. I've loaded ModelConverterX a few times without the USB device attached and no reboot. I've noticed...

    FS2004 Newbie to effects - need a little help

    I was able to get the steady red light to show only by using the method where I add the effect to an XML and run through BGLComp. The only issue with that method is that it's impossible to align to the top of my antennas (which is why I presume attachtool was created). Eric

    FS2004 Newbie to effects - need a little help

    Well I tried all day today to get a steady red light, but failed. I found the perfect effect file (fs_LightRedSteady.fx) for a steady red light, but for the life of me, couldn't get it to show up. I tried using attachtool to attach it to a box within my model and then tried in its own model...

    FS2004 ModelConverterX causing my computer to reboot

    Has anyone experienced their computer rebooting when closing ModelConverterX? I have Windows XP/SP3. No problems loading my models, but when I click the x to close the program, my computer almost always reboots. I didn't see anything in the forums, but may have missed it if it was buried in a...

    FS2004 Newbie to effects - need a little help

    Hi all, I was looking into putting red lights on the top of my tower. I've never messed around with effects and attempted to follow the attach tool SDK with my object, but I'm not getting any lights at night, dawn or dusk. A few questions. Do I need to have 2 boxes with one having DAY, NIGHT...

    FS2004 Need help with generic object removal-exclude not working

    I got it working. What I did was go to Tools -> Remove Stock Data and selected Scenery Objects. It removed the buildings (but removed my VOR/DME in the center of the field too!). I found a Generic library object to fill in (although I would appreciate if someone coud point me to the one without...
