    P3D v3 FSX animated scenery objects in P3D

    Hi, I am trying to get a scenery working in P3D. Everything works except for 2 animated features. One is a hangar with an animated door which can be opened and closed by switching the Nav 2 radio to a set frequency (114.50) and another is animated rabbit lights which can be switched by...

    FSX:SE Project objects are not being compiled

    Hi. I am using ADE V 1.70.6042. I have been sent an existing scenery which is in the process of being converted from FS9 to FSX and P3D. I have been looking at the ADE file, and have discovered all the scenery objects are placed using ADE. If I load the last ADEX bgl which was sent with the...

    P3D v3 Converting gauges for use in P3D V3

    Hi, I have been messing around with an old FSX model (JF/CLS DC-10) which actually happens to be a FS9 model, and trying to get it to work in P3D V3. When I originally installed it I converted the model textures to dds format, as I read that was necessary (although I have since discovered it...

    FSX:SE Object Placement Tool with addon scenery

    Hi, I have read some info on this, but can't seem to figure out the problem I was having. It has been ages since I added any objects to FSX, and before I used IS2 to add objects. I am now trying to add a few static aircraft to an airport in FSX:SE and P3D. I have created a library, both with...

    FSXA FSX SDK no manual installed

    HI, I have FSX:SE and P3D V3 installed. I have just tried to install the original FSX SDK from the Gold edition Disc 1, and it seems to have installed OK, but there is no manual. I'm sure I could find some documentation anyway, maybe I saved a copy of the file somewhere, and I know I can find...

    FSXA Autogen and PR matching

    Hi, I have a PR scenery of France which was split in to 9 volumes. It was not organised in regions, but just in geographically arranged horizontal rows starting from the south. The reason I split it in to volumes was that I read somewhere a long time ago that it would be better performance...

    P3D v3 Patchy landclass outside of PR

    HI, I'm just wondering if anyone knows what is causing this effect. I am using Flightbeam's Denver with FTX Global and there are strange, patchy "bits" of landclass, which changes as you fly, just outside the boundary of the PR. It's not a big deal really, and if you weren't looking closely...

    P3D v3 Converting FSX bmps to dds for P3D

    Hi, I recently purchased the Just Flight DC-10 package, the older version, not the newer HD package. I didn't check, and I didn't necessarily buy it for use in P3D, as I also still use FSX regularly, which is lucky because apparently it doesn't work in P3D. After some research I have read...

    FSXA Photo scenery overriding ground poly

    Hi, I have a question regarding a scenery installation. I have photoreal scenery of Switzerland installed. It is 1m/pixel and it is PR ground texture only, with no afcads, exclusions or any other type of file. This scenery is very low down in the scenery library so that any other sceneries...

    FSXA Rotating Airport Beacon

    Hi, I am having a bit of trouble adding a default rotating airport beacon. I assume they are meant to rotate, I think I remember seeing that. I used the SDK Object Placement Tool and it was actually the first time I used it. I added a Beacon tower with a Military beacon placed at the top of...

    Tarmac Textures not displaying

    Hi, I have just installed an ACG scenery tonight; RAF Marham 1993, and for some reason there are large black sections on the aprons and taxiways. I tried opening the ADEX file to see if I could figure out why, and the sections that are displaying as black seem to be labelled as having a...

    ADS?

    A new ad pops up every time I click on anything. When did this start? It may be another sign of the times, but I must say I'm not a fan. Cheers, Scott

    FSXA Terrain Polygon Autogen Exclude not working

    Hi. I have been working on a PR scenery of Horsham Airport and the close surrounds, and I have been having a problem excluding autogen. I have tried using the terrain polygons set to "exclude autogen" and also set to "exclude autogen, mask class map, flatten". I am making these terrain...

    GIMP Batch mode

    Hi, I am wondering if anyone knows how to use any kind of batch mode in GIMP to simply bucket fill an image completely white. I am a fair way through a PR project, and one of the processes is to use shapefile data to create watermasking for the PR quickly. I have been trying to find shortcuts...

    FSX Watermask from shapefile?

    Hi, I was just wondering if it is possible to take a shapefile with coastline information and convert that to a geotiff somehow to kind of automate the process of creating a water mask for a country's coastline. I have found several shapefiles with land and water polygons representing a...

    Strange output coordinates after resample

    Hi. I am stumped at the moment, and I thought someone here might be able to help. I had some jp2 files which I merged then reprojected and converted to GeoTiffs. When I ran these all through resample, the output bgls were perfect, as in they were in exactly the right spot and lined up with...

    Developing for FSX and P3D , which SDK?

    Hi. A question was asked earlier at OzX, and I was unable to answer, so I thought I would check here and see if anyone knew. If you are developing a new airport scenery and you want it to work in FSX and Prepar3D (V2.4), then would you use the FSX SDK or the P3D SDK or both? There are a...
