SimConnect tool

Hi,

I haven't had time to look at this further.

To make this really useful we would probably need a general tool/module that any developer can use to position objects through simconnect. That would be better than each project having its own tool.
 
Arno,
Thanks for replying.
That is true: a tool would be the ideal solution, instead of maybe a code that should be replicated and tailored for each project.

So, for the time this leaves us only with SCASM for visibility-dependent objects/effects?
 
Hello,

I have been following on a development with application in a certain payware scenery. So far it is tied to the scenery.

I have agreed with the developer that within a timeframe after release, this would not be available for any 3rd parties, but I intend to use this timeframe to work on making it into a broader "framework" as Arno suggested. Eventually I would make it available to other scenery designers (at individual terms).

The coding does take some time though. I have been "lucky" (in a kind) that I could do the bulk of work before entering employment, but since I did not have any previous C++ experience, I was learning by doing. You can imagine this takes time. Now that I have a full time job, time is yet scarcer, but I continue to chip away at it, working in some useful features, optimizing, so on.
 
Good news that you got it sorted.
It would be great if at some point of time this could be available to amateurs/freeware developers also.

I definitely want it to be.

By individual terms - I certainly don't mean I want to get rich from it; don't assume this means some high licensing costs, especially for a freeware developer.

My two main reasons to do this, first - to create a solution to the problem that was bugging me for two years - how to make a properly proper lightning for the Kosice scenery ( :) ), second - to give something back to the community that has helped me get over some really hard times in my personal life, and much more.
