FSX ActiGate and CAT for FSX?

#1
Hi Arno, I am wondering if you would consider looking at ActiGate and CAT tools and trying to make it compatible with FSX.
If not you, maybe you could release the stuff other people would need to try and get it working?

Sorry for bugging you but these two wonderful tools open up so many opportunities for people (myself included) in scenery development.

Thank you very much,

Nick

Hi Nick,

In FSX it is impossible to make conditional animations, so there is no way I could make a CAT For FSX. If you want such animations then you will have to stick to the FS2004 MDL format and use the current CAT.

For ActiGate it is slightly different, but with the new IK jetway animations in FSX it is less necessary to have this module. Maybe only for the docking systems. We are currently in the progress of updating the project I made ActiGate for to FSX, so maybe I will update the module then. To be honest I did not fully test if it works in its current form in FSX or not. Since it uses FSUIPC it might already work.

I didn't think about putting FS2004 models in FSX :)

The airport I may be designing uses air stairs.....I guess it would be possible to animate and use IK bones (is this the right term?)
What does the gate in FSX look for to dock to eg the bottom of the door?

Hi,

Yes, it should be the bottom of the door that is specified in the aircraft.
