    FSXA Lightning Strike effect?

    Greetings! I've done the due diligence searches of the forums and have come up empty. I'm working on a mission where a small plane gets "zapped" by a lightening strike and loses some of its electronics. Getting the electronics to fail is easy. What I want is an accompanying blinding flash...

    FSXA AI Aircraft & Yield to User

    Greetings, I'm working up a mission where a helicopter swoops down and land in front of a taxiing AI Learjet, causing the plane to stop and thus preventing some bad guy's nefarious plans…you get the picture…I think I've seen a variation of this a dozen times on various TV shows and movies...

    FSXA PIP on a droppable object

    Hi, I'm trying to figure out how to get a PIP to watch a falling object. On the SDK web page it says: "A PictureInPictureViewController object adds a small view window and is typically used for a "bomb-cam" -- giving a view of or from a falling object." Well that's what I want - a...

    FSXA Why the Splash??!!

    Greetings, I'm working on a little something that requires a plane to make a forced water landing - i.e. like the "Miracle on the Hudson" There are a coupe of planes out there like LHC's outstanding Lear 24B and RealAir's Duke so I know it can be done. I thought I'd start out small and...

    FSXA Is there "Advanced Life" without SimVar?

    I've been mission building for years…I cut my teeth on OPT then moved to FSXME. However, I am fairly new to SimVar. It certainly does many great things via FSXME and I am totally hooked. (look for a free (obviously) SimVar intensive mission to come out on my website in a week or so.) Of...

    FSXA "Destructible" scenery

    Happy Holidays All! Don't know you have noticed but RAZBAM is having a "going out of the FSX business" sale. You can get their planes for a song…if somebody will pay you $10 for singing…but I digress. I filled out my RAZBAM military titles - A-7s and Harriers. The aircraft were some of...

    FSXA Visibility Reports / Settings

    Hi All, I putting this into Airport Design General however, it is more about how an airport design reacts with FSX weather. FSX ATIS gives visibility in "miles". In the U.S. this means statute miles, not nautical miles. In other countries around the world the METAR, from which I assume...

    FSXA Making Weather

    Hi, I'm starting an FSX mission-based project where weather will play a prominent role. I see to recall that many FSMS iterations ago there was a map-thingy where you drew in clouds, rain, temperatures and things like that. (I know X-plane has that function.) The Weather SDK in the Wiki is...

    FSX Default Navaids Update

    It's been close to a decade since FSX was released. At the risk of being classified as a MOTO, things have changed - especially in the Navaid world. I was looking for an easy (hopefully) way to update the default FSX Navaid database. While searching the forums on this subject I learned that...

    FSXA Making an Old Airport

    Hi All, I recently purchased a number of Classic Aircraft, Constellations, Comets, DC-8' etc. As I settle into my second, half century, I am looking to develop some of the airports I traveled through in my youth. For example, I remember when KPHL. Was a single concrete/stone building with the...

    FSXA Nice Skid Marks

    This started in a different thread - my questions nothing to do with that thread so I started a new one…:Dquoting from the original thread. Hopefully that's the way to handle something like this. Nice tire marks. I can never get that right. Always turns out like somebody dumped black paint...

    Blender on iMac?

    OK, I've seen an Austin Sass tutorial and while I think I could have done a few things faster in gMax, I clearly see Blender's benefits - the auto shadowing, how it UV maps out the texture file, etc. Besides, gMax is getting long in the tooth. So I'm considering making a change. (I could use...

    FSX Stopping a Play Sound Action

    I've done the due diligence forum searches with zero hits - firts time that ha happened :yikes: Anybody know how—or if it's possible—to stop a Play Sound Action "mid career" as it were. The situation: I start a siren triggered by a timer trigger. It is tied to the engine start of an airplane...

    FSXA Air Stairs Truck instead of Jetway

    I'm looking for a way for an air stars truck to act like a Jetway - i.e. find the airliner's open door to attach itself. In searching the forums I found one mention of something like this from a member that who posted that he was going to try to do this - the post was from 2008. The member was...

    Hi, Background: I have two machines running FSXA. Machine 1 is a nice Dell that I use for FS development . I bought this as a "normal" PC and loaded my existing copy of FSX and then Acceleration on it. (After removing it from my older computer of course) Machine 2 is a Jetline kitted out...

    Greetings, I'm working on a mission where I 'd like to start with the parked EH101 cold/dark, get airborne and pick up a sling load cargo without going through the difficult load attachment process or without the user having to reset their aircraft.cfg file to make attaching a load more easy...

    FSXA I've Tried Everything…(new mission category)

    …well obviously I haven't tried everything because I cannot get it to work–I cannot create a new mission category :banghead: I followed the Tutorial in the SDK guide. I noted the errors in the example file and corrected them. I downloaded and used the MS GUID creator. I did everything by...

    Greetings, As the title suggests, I've go an auto-ten building at an airport I'm redoing (LSZC) that refuses to disappear, exclude, just go away! Did some searching in the forum and found some similar but not close enough issues. In one Mr. ScruffyDuck states: So that is why the...

    FSXA Russian Meteor

    Has anybody thought of or started building an effect of yesterday's meteor in Russia? I am thinking about it but while I'm OK at simple effects like lights but wouldn't know where to start on like a meteor. That said, there are plenty of videos and weather satellites have the lat/long pretty...
