Wind sock

#1
Does anyone know how I can move a wind sock to a different location.

I assume wind socks must be moved in a different manner as they do not seem to be included in the editor.

draw an exclusion rectangle around just the wind sock and say excludeAllObjects = "TRUE" />

now add back a new windsock as a sceneryObject with your Lat/Lon as seen with TcalcX

<SceneryObject lat="52.314815323739" lon="4.78059238990525" alt="0.000F"
altitudeIsAgl="TRUE" pitch="0.00" bank="0.00" heading="0.00"
imageComplexity="VERY_SPARSE">
<Windsock
poleHeight="5.5"
sockLength="3.5"
lighted="TRUE">
<PoleColor
red="148"
blue="148"
green="148"/>
<SockColor
red="240"
blue="14"
green="105"/>
</Windsock>
</SceneryObject>

This does not need a airport header because windsocks are global in design. You just need the

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<FSData version="9.0"
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="bglcomp.xsd">

Windsock data here

</FSData>


and then compile using a proper name for your xml.
