Arg.. i also thought: Lets check back if arno finished of the last edges of the replacement thing for the attachpoints.
And now i see all this (maybe) offtopic stuff by Gary.
Dont get me wrong gary, cause all this maybe full of information that is usefull, but in the end i think it is to far...
The info was from the SDK.. as i told, and my experience with water.
And as roby said, he used a hydro poly. Now you proved that it works, so im wrong, again it was just my opinion of that stuff.
A question, is the ocean a big hydro poly or something else?
Hm, pretty complex stuff and many things that must be considered here.
And many things i dont know. Just on thing. As far as i know not all landclass from FS9 work in FSX, and thats probably whats wrong here. Cause it could be that in default FSX you dont have land where the island is.
Cool that you say that... but as robystar proofed, it is not. Cause he added a hydro poly ;)
Also in payware addons like FSGlobalX2010 you have two options after the install.
A. The mesh rises the water where you have water.
B. Where the mesh rises, on a pre water area, the water disappears...
Nope, the mesh comes first and on top of it FSX puts the landclass.
So if you wand to change the coastline you often have to change the mesh in that area too, only if all has the same hight.. it wouldnt be needed. (or the other way arround)
I dont think he is talking about a finished file, he seems to work on own project.
Just search the forum for landing lights stuff, cause there are all over two ways
A. Effect files (FSX comes with a landing light effect)
B. Poly lights (+effect as far as i know)
(or is B completly withou...
I had this problem ones some time ago with a other game.
My simple but timetaking solution back then was... fold the "polys" over the area in unwrap editor.
think of it like a sheet of paper that you fold left, right, left, right and so on.
Or you can break it in several parts and just put them...
If you dont want to use gmax... (MCX can now correct this) and you dont speak about apron taxi lights?
Anyway i only know a pay tool that has an array option (i dont use it): http://secure.simmarket.com/fsaddon-fencebuilder-pro.phtml
