    P3D v4 Need a little help with Python...

    Any fellow simmers good with Python? I am stuck on some coding I am developing and what could take probably a "true coder" a few minutes has stumped me for days o_O (you guessed it, my Python coding is in its beginning stages). Has to do with "randomness" and using QGIS so I guess technically...

    P3D v4 Orbx libraries circumventing ACM?

    I have a customer who purchased simwestSOCAL ( which has some custom tree groupings based on default trees), and also has installed many Orbx airports, sceneries, and the like and the Orbx Libraries. He told me that he was missing all trees in my product. During our several months of beta...

    P3D v4 Water colors

    Lately (as you may have noticed with my posts), I've been tinkering with water combined with photoreal imagery: 1. Can one change the color of water? I know you can do this with landclass/water polys? But hhen I apply a watermask over a photoreal lake the color always appears the same color...

    P3D v4 Combining a Watermask and Blendmask for a lake?

    Let's say I want to add "water" to a lake in my photoreal scenery. So I create a watermask... no issue. But let's say I want to add a blendmask for the shoreline. Now here's the tricky part. What if the default lake in P3D (FSX) is smaller than what is shown in the photoreal scenery? So I...

    P3D v4 Water masking - an automated process?

    I thought I had read or downloaded an app that described a process on how to automate watermasking. Of course I now cannot find that information, article, forum post, or app. Does anyone recall any information on this topic? The key word is automated. I already can create water-masking...

    P3D v4 Resample creates bgl with black border line

    This is an issue I just encountered that I don't believe I have seen for years. I created some ground imagery where the resulting .bgl is creating a single pixel-width black border on the right border side only. At further inspection the line is actually not black but water. My process as...

    P3D v4 ACM updating AutogenDescriptions.spb despite addon deactivated

    Arno, Through my testing of adding new vegetation, I just noticed that ACM is updating the AutogenDescriptions.spb file even if there are no add-on sceneries activated. The only way to prevent this is to delete the add-on from the Scenery Library. I thought this was addressed? I d/l the...

    My first attempt at agn tree... is missing!

    So I am attempting to create my very first tree to be used as autogen. I believe I have followed most steps correctly: 1. Created tree in Sketchup 2. Created properly sized texture 3. Imported into MCX and all looks good. 4. Created a mdl and a scenery .bgl file in MCX 4. Created a .dds...

    Updating script to cenPROC 2.0

    Been using scenPROC 1.1 for years but thought I would see what differences in output would be if I use scenPROC 2.0. So I need to convert my scripts. I take it there is no quick module that does this (fingers crossed) :p I noticed if I open a "virgin" 1.1 script scenPROC 2.0 will display it...

    Congrats to Arno...

    ...and to scenPROC. It made the cover of LM's Prepar3D News with regards for tools on creating one's own scenery and scenPROC was recommended. good goin'!

    P3D v4 Unable to delete airport library objects

    Using the version of ADE I have been trying to delete the KSAN default airport tower and two storage tanks without success. Reading up on posts, this is what I am doing: 1. Open the default KSAN airport in P3Dv4. 2. Create a project name for it and saved it. 3. Re-opened the project (just to...

    Are signature images allowed?

    I think not as I haven't seen any but thought I would ask... plus I haven't been able to load any. Just curious. Clutch

    Just wanted to post an little announcement and a big-big THANK YOU to Arno and all who contribute to the FSDeveloper forums. Without you guys I never would have had the inspiration, the drive and dedication it takes of several years of leaning to code, learning to design and develop in order...

    P3D v4 ACM message appears every single P3D boot

    Arno, I came across a repeatable instance whereby ACM will produce its GUI info window every time P3Dv4 starts (have not checked for other platforms). I am not sure if this would be considered an issue so let me explain the situation. I have an add-on where I have my latest custom autogen...

    Issue of objects not working in both P3D and FSX

    I have come across an issue that I need some advice/insight/help on. I created some lights that work as agn. If I process them using MCX as P3D and place them in my addon scenery folder (not the flightsim platform's folders), they work in P3D but not in FSX as I would expect. Again using MCX...

    Correcting Airports - more than just moving?

    I have noticed several bush strips, dirt strips and single runway GA airports not aligned with my photoreal scenery. Most are fairly close, maybe just requires a little rotation or small movement. Planning to use ADE for this. But I fear there is more to it than just moving an airport. For...

    P3D v4 Setting up 3DSMax and P3Dv4 correctly... issues

    Trying to set up 3DSMax 2014 with P3Dv4 but it’s been around four years since I modeled with it so it feels like I am starting from scratch. Could use a few pointers as I am getting several errors as I try to setup properly. Reading many pages of the FSDeveloper Max forums I was able to set up...

    P3D v3 Does ACM create an add-on.xml file for P3Dv3?

    Hi Arno, I wanted to confirm if this is correct. If I install ACM for P3Dv4 it creates an a AutogenConfigurationMerger folder and an add-on.xml file inside it and places the folder into 'C:\{Documents}\Lockheed\Prepar3D v3\Add-ons' folder. . When I run P3Dv4 for the first time P3D asks if I...

    P3D v4 Need a little clarification on the Add-on.xml method

    I am working on my first attempt at creating an Add-on.xml for my add-on scenery. Through research here and the P3D SDK I was able to create one that works but I guess the only way to know for sure would be to completely uninstall P3Dv4 (or v3), reinstall and see if my scenery remains...

    Remember the TV series 'Breaking Bad'?...

    We're currently beta testing an area around Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, and I thought we might have a little fun with simmers when we release this. This release will actually be freeware as a sample. Those familiar with the series will remember the infamous 1986 motorhome where Walter...
