I am still in my learning curve on how to handle effects in P3Dv4. I was playing with a simple airport light effect. One light only.
What I found is that, Although my effect is placed properly in ADE, with a specific heading, the actual effect seems to actually be pointing towards the...
Thanks for the appreciation. Sad to read that what was perfectly working before does not anymore.
However, I was always able to compile using v1.65 until now. Is there some kind of limit in the number of GP objects that I may have reached under v1.65 but not in v1.75? Thanks again.
I hope you'll be able to help. I have a complex airport on which I use GP objects. I carefully place these objects using the 'copy coordinates' options. Until now I was using v1.65 without a glitch but suddenly I started getting crashes in P3D. So I decided to move to 1.75. Although this...
I will run some optimization stuff like having more longer lines that several shorter. This airport only has a few edge lights (blue) so I use models for that. My struggle is the green centerlines which will be my next challenge :)
I am still struggling (nothing appears now) but will surely find my way through.
With regards to the fx, I have excluded them for the time as they are the ones killing my fps, not the gp.
BTW, with the new compiler, I see the file went through the roof with 23mb where it was around 5mb before...
The picture is well in my post above yours. In case, here's the link to it: https://www.dropbox.com/s/m5yx7pwld6ycppr/Screenshot%202016-09-17%2019.37.48.png?dl=0
I use the latest version of ADE:
For the ad4 file, here's a link...
I've been working on a project for some time without a problem and tonight, after I compiled my project once again to check the latest changes, I get the below:
As you can see, the taxi lines are supposed to have yellow with black base but only the base is displayed. Same goes for the...
I'm well advanced in my current project but am struggling with the taxiway centerline lights. I have tried adding effects. While this works as expected, this is killing my fps as I cannot control how far I want the lights to display.
1- Is there a way to control how far the...
Jon - I have the lines but was referring to the centerline lights
Tom - Will give it a try and let you all know.
Edit: The issue is mainly in the curves so will use the default path lights for the straight lines and effects for the curves.
Any idea what effect I can use so...
I've been trying to find a way to have custom-made green center lines at my airport and thought of using the .fx files by placing these effects at a given distance to each other along the centerlines. All goes well except that, after having place a substantial number, this is at a...
Cracked it! Thanks all!
The issue was that the SDK was installed on a separate PC from the one I was working on. This was not a problem until now. I did install the SDK on the local PC and it now works like a charm.
I have changed the path to point directly to the SDK and again, same symptoms.
When I only ask to compile the airport and objects, nothing. When I ask to only compile the GP objects, it works...
I tried this also before posting and get no result, the BGL compiler does not even fire...
With regards to the GP, I had these messages in the past and did not have issues with the compiler.
I did. Tried to upload the file again but no luck: "The uploaded file is too large for the server to process".
