The two SimDocks scenes HAMBURG ALSTER and BIRDS AIR ROUTE FROM PUTTGARDEN TO RODBYHAVN, which previously had to be installed manually, have now been equipped with an automatic 2-way installer.
The reason for this is that during the installation you can choose whether you want to install using...
already in 2015 I wrote an extensive tutorial on how to create your own AI ship traffic (with Henrik Nielsens and my ship models) for FSX and P3D.
Since I hadn't found the time to translate the tutorial yet, it was only available in German and I was asked again and again if it...
I work with texture maps in my scenes. So different objects have different textures that are present on a texture map.
If I install The file with the XML method the objects don't get the right textures. In my scenery Birds Air Route, for example, there are animated locomotives that have 3...
In the SimDocks Forum there is now also AI traffic available for free download. The routes for Henriks ships and the SimDocks ships are created by forum members.
It all started with Pete, who created the shipping traffic for Lake Constance.
Prerequisite for using the routes is the installation...
After the now finished "Birds Air Route" I have chosen the port of Hamburg for the year 2019 on multiple request.
Since the performance over Hamburg in the P3D isn't the best anyway, I can't say yet with certainty what the final scope of the project will be.
It is clear that it...
A new AI ship has been released for the Simulator Seas. It is the heavy / yacht carrier "Dockwise Explorer" which can be downloaded as freeware from the SimDocks.de website (registration required).
The ship does not only sail in the coastal areas, but also crosses the seas and oceans...
The "River Star" is a modern river cruise ship as it sails on many European rivers. The model travels on the following routes:
Hamburg <-> Geesthacht
Wittenberge <-> Tangermünde
Magdeburg <-> Aken
Meissen <-> Dresden
Düsseldorf <-> Kölln
Remagen <-> Koblenz
Koblenz <-> Eltville...
Now that the Alster scenery is finished and published, I'm already working on my next project for P3D V4. It is the ferry link between the German Baltic island Fehmarn and the Danish island Lolland. The project includes the two ports of Puttgarden and Rødbyhavn and of course the ferries...
I use the ModelconverterX now for the first time under Win10. I've noticed that I can´t add fx effects to any models.
The position cross of the effects will disappear and after compiling is no effect present.
Even with models I have compiled still under win7 the position Cross...
I´m a newbie in 3D-Modelling. Now I have bulid my firts ship model for AI ship traffic in FSX and P3D. In this model I use the fx_Smoke_Sml fx.
My question is wether it is possible to stop the effect when the ship stops (e.g. in a habour) even like the wake effect?
