    FSXA VTP Lines in FSX_KML-or anywhere else

    I post here because FSX_KML forum seems to have little activity. I thought I had succesfully produced a std VTP line already defined from the modified terrain.cfg I used FSX_KML, modified the tag library, built a polyline In Google Earth with and without a hook and produced a bgl that...

    FSXA Where should "error notices" be put?

    It's clear that some FSXA build(s) have a defective FSXAnimation.ms script. A Google search as well as a search here on FSDeveloper makes it clear that developers with a correct script have tried unsuccessfully to help others with a defective script. There is a very simple edit to fix this for...

    FSXA KBTV AREA SCREENSHOTS

    GaryGB, here is a first try at posting something in Showroom. Rhumbaflappy exposed me to how good a 1/9 arc-second custom DEM can look. I tried a 3rd image but the system won't take it. I used Autohotkey to automate the downloading of Bing images from Rhumbaflappys site. The really good...

    Burlington Vermont (KBTV) has a nice civil airport and a big military presence on the other side of the main runway. The Army National Guard has a huge hangar for BlackHawks and the Air National Guard presently flies F-16's and I am told for safety reasons they have to take off with full...

    FSXA Missing landclass terrain

    My landbased textures from 100B2su* TO 120B2su*, THE "CITY" textures, seem to be totally inaccessible in my system. They are there because they show up when FSX is operating. Anyone know why this occurs?

    FSXA Night Maps don't appear

    I am upgrading my gmax airport and have run into a wall. Night textures (on my buildings) don't show up at night. On bottom of the GMAX summary report it says I have both maps (day/night) applied to the edittable mesh. My 512x512 gmax BMP texture and my 512x512 flipped, DDS DXT1(no alpha)...

    FSXA Setting levels for special map figures......

    The matching up of photoreal tiles turns out to be pretty cumbersome, even though I was using Google to use as a base to provide coordinate landmarks. To make things easier, I decided to create a Scenery File called Pointers, and I placed a couple of little pink arrows, with Google coordinates...

    Transferring Gp_objects from one airport .ad4 to another .ad4

    FSXA X-PLANE SETBACK

    Regrettably, patent trolls, who are trying to extract $$$$ from X-Planes' founder by meaningless and continuous patent infringement lawsuits with an invitation to settle for a "price", have made it clear that they "own" the U.S. Senate. Our local Senator, Pat Leahy, who was spearheading...

    FSXA PAPI's tied to runway

    KBTV LENGTHENED RWY1-19 AND WHEN I CHANGED MY AIRPORT, THE ASSOCIATED PAPI LIGHTS FROM 1-19 WERE PULLED NORTH TO THE MIDDLE OF RUNWAY 15-33. LANDING AND PASSING THROUGH PAPI LIGHTS SUBTRACTS FROM THE REALISM..IT LOOKS TO ME AS IF PAPI LIGHTS ARE ALWAYS A FIXED % FROM THE TOTAL RWY LENGTH. IS...
