Hi all you expert out there; :wizard:
I'm trying to get a object to appear at a specific time and place and for a few seconds...
I know how to control the effect (using a xml file) , but not the objects :banghead:
I read that using SODE it can be done. Is there another way to do this. Or SODE...
First, Thank you Tom. Now it work OK.
I am a slow learner ;)
Like you said it takes 5 Keyframes to rotate in FSX.
And i tried in P3D4 and it rotate with only 2 keyframes !
I have 2 more questions :scratchch
1 = Where can i find the manuel / tutorial that explain how to use the Hierarchy ?
I am trying, for first time, to do animation with MCX, and have enccountered a problem !
As a test;
1=i try to make a UFO fly around
2= i try to make UFO rotating.
My testing in MCX both objects work fine, but in FSX the rotation does not work but the flying work good.
I put my .BGL...
I have a Library with 13 objects in it.
When i check them they all show up except there is one that do not show in the screen (screen is blank/empty) and one that is to close (i have to zoom out).
When i am on the that object ( that do not show up ), I have to click on [ reset view ] then on [...
Nothing i try work. :banghead:
I try individual .BGL no luck
Install them in private addon scenery; no luck
Install them in scenery \global\scenery; no luck
They appear once every 3 to 4 time i fly to them.
Seems like all the other effect i try (placement and time) work fine in P3D4...
I have the latest version of FXEditor and dont have the choice in «option» to choose P3D4 !
Is this normal ?
Cause i have a probleme with the effect " fx_lightning01" not showing as i set the time and place in P3D4
But it work perfecly in FSX !
here is where i am.
First = I created a .xml file that i compile in the SDK for FSX and it work perfectly in FSX :)
Then = I take the same .xml file and compile it in SDK for P3D4.5 and it does not work good in P3D4 :(
In P3D4.5 the 2 towers and the hotel show good. the forest fire work good...
Thank you GaryGB and RK; ;)
I work full time so i do not have all the time for testing, but be certain i will test your explanation . And i can say, it is well explain and i think i understand what you discribe.
I will post my result later. (cannot say when, but it will be done).
Maybe i explain myself wrong (i'm not English)
It is local time in the morning
All i want to understand is, how to enter the date and time in the section parameters !
What to enter first and how to enter it ; and how do i saperate them, do i use ( ) or " " or / or \ or ; etc...
Thank you in...
effect = FX_lightning01.fx
Date = 17 november 2018
time = 06hr 41minute
duration = the time for the Lightning to appear ! (1-2 seconde!!!) and when it hits the ground a forest fire will appear a few seconde after the lightning.
this will be only for a test , so i can see how it works ;-)
Thank you for giving me a idea !
Because i create a mission with some scenery for the VA that i am member and when they taxy the runway will disappear.
Like you say; there is probably a hidden mesh (or something else) in the original scenery…
But i solve the problem by moving the runway...
