    P3D v4 Airport Light effect following Aircraft's heading

    Hi, I am still in my learning curve on how to handle effects in P3Dv4. I was playing with a simple airport light effect. One light only. What I found is that, Although my effect is placed properly in ADE, with a specific heading, the actual effect seems to actually be pointing towards the...

    P3D v3 ADE1.75.6421 (Pro) - GP objects not aligned

    Hi Don, Thanks for the appreciation. Sad to read that what was perfectly working before does not anymore. However, I was always able to compile using v1.65 until now. Is there some kind of limit in the number of GP objects that I may have reached under v1.65 but not in v1.75? Thanks again. Fred

    P3D v3 ADE1.75.6421 (Pro) - GP objects not aligned

    Hi, I hope you'll be able to help. I have a complex airport on which I use GP objects. I carefully place these objects using the 'copy coordinates' options. Until now I was using v1.65 without a glitch but suddenly I started getting crashes in P3D. So I decided to move to 1.75. Although this...

    P3D v3 GP objects/lines only displaying randomly

    Gotcha! I will run some optimization stuff like having more longer lines that several shorter. This airport only has a few edge lights (blue) so I use models for that. My struggle is the green centerlines which will be my next challenge :)

    P3D v3 GP objects/lines only displaying randomly

    I am still struggling (nothing appears now) but will surely find my way through. With regards to the fx, I have excluded them for the time as they are the ones killing my fps, not the gp. BTW, with the new compiler, I see the file went through the roof with 23mb where it was around 5mb before...

    P3D v3 GP objects/lines only displaying randomly

    OK. let me try with 1.71. In the meantime, I have deleted some of the latest GP and recompiled and it seems to be working fine. I will add them step by step to see which is causing the issue. thx Fred

    P3D v3 GP objects/lines only displaying randomly

    Hi, I've been working on a project for some time without a problem and tonight, after I compiled my project once again to check the latest changes, I get the below: As you can see, the taxi lines are supposed to have yellow with black base but only the base is displayed. Same goes for the...

    P3D v3 Best way to create accurate taxiway lights

    ok. the reason I was asking is because I was struggling going through the SDK for effects. I guess I will have to find the answers on my own...

    P3D v3 Best way to create accurate taxiway lights

    Thanks Don, Which part of the .fx file should I try to tweak then? As far as I am concerned, the fx has a massive impact on FPS :( Fred

    P3D v3 Best way to create accurate taxiway lights

    Hi, I'm well advanced in my current project but am struggling with the taxiway centerline lights. I have tried adding effects. While this works as expected, this is killing my fps as I cannot control how far I want the lights to display. My questions: 1- Is there a way to control how far the...

    P3D v3 Custom taxi centerlines

    Jon - I have the lines but was referring to the centerline lights Tom - Will give it a try and let you all know. Thanks Fred ---- Edit: The issue is mainly in the curves so will use the default path lights for the straight lines and effects for the curves. Any idea what effect I can use so...

    P3D v3 Custom taxi centerlines

    Dear all, I've been trying to find a way to have custom-made green center lines at my airport and thought of using the .fx files by placing these effects at a given distance to each other along the centerlines. All goes well except that, after having place a substantial number, this is at a...
