• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Animating rudder wires in FSDS 3.5

Hello fellow modellers,

I'm trying to brush up my modelling skills and returned to an older project. This time I want to make it for FSX. I'm stuck with the animation of the wires, the rudder wires.

For fs2004 it was simple enough. But all the animations are changed for FSX! Can someone point me to a solution? I had the source file of Dave Eckerts Camel once, but it must have disappeared with a crash I had many moons ago. Help is very much appreciated!

Hi Cees,

I would add two dummy parts on the rudder wire attach points at the exact spot where they would be attached. Then I would (set these dummy parts as parents for the wires and) add keyframes every 5 frames adjusting the angle of the wire as you go, this would be a good way to do it as far as making it smooth.
