    P3D v4 GP Night Texture Problem

    I wasn't sure whether you were referring to the built-in FS-8-style night illumination feature or a custom feature. I see it is the latter. You will need to create a custom material (page 25 of the User Manual) to control the textures. Don

    P3D v4 GP Night Texture Problem

    Hard to tell from what you've given me. I need to know about your process - in detail - to even be able to start to understand your situation. A copy of your .ad4 file and the GP .bgl may also be helpful. Don

    Apology accepted. Thanks. Don

    FSX Texture missing on static aircraft

    Rick, when someone maligns one of my developments, I believe I have a right to reply whether or not the comments were directed to me. I'm not going to dispute your individual points other than to say that my FPS references were referring to the reduced overall impact of a SAMM-converted static...

    FSX AI Arrivals Anomaly

    Is that just your intent, or have you confirmed Local Time is not inadvertently selected. (Local time is one of the settings that is carried over from one session to the next.) But if those times are truly GMT, then I can't explain other then to suggest you've found an(other) idiosyncrasy in...

    FSX AI Arrivals Anomaly

    What is the source of your two copies of the FP. If the flightplans.txt file, then there is some sort of problem. But they look suspiciously like they come from AIFPs text editor. If that is the case, are you programming on local time of GMT? If local time, the last two legs overlap; 1400 at...

    Traffic not showing

    It's near the bottom of the AIFP Flight Plans menu. Don

    P3D v4 Flatten or not

    Doesn't matter what tools you used to create the airport. In hilly country, a single, horizontal flatten won't work - unless you are happy with cliffs somewhere along the edge. Your flatten needs to have the same elevation at its edges as the terrain it meets. Higher and bigger will help...

    Traffic not showing

    . That typically means either the airport is on daylight savings time and the flight plan is not, or vice versa. Easiest fix is to use the Flight Plans menu function "Retard to standard time". Don

    P3D v4 Flatten or not

    It would seem the terrain elevation in your PV4 is different from that in FSX. Lionheart, this is also generally true between FS9 and FSX; FSX mesh is more detailed than FS9 mesh. The PV4 stock mesh appears to be the same as FSX. So, Jean Pierre, I suspect you have non-stock mesh installed in...

    P3D v4 AIFP Help

    Bob, since they are all appear to be the same aircraft, delete all ACs with refnos > 300 and use the global replace function to replace all the AC refnos in the flight plans > 300 with "300". Don

    New General Release (3.2.18)

    It was recently discovered that AIFP did not recognize simobjects installed via LM's PV4 Program Data folder add-ons.cfg file, such as AIG's new AI Manager OCI. General Release 3.2.18, just uploaded, fixes this issue The new release should be discovered automatically the next time you run...

    FSX Global Lighting Changes

    I don't believe it can be done since runway and taxiway lights do not incorporate a physical model. You can probably alter the stock light characteristics by fiddling with effects and associated textures. But, for custom models, the only way I know of is to suppress the stock lights and...

    FSX SAMM Issue with landing gear

    If you were successful in generating a wheels-down "blank" model, you should be able to do the same with a texture. The creation of the TEXT block uses the same code in either case and has nothing to do with the replacement of animations with static transforms. You don't place a .mdl file...
