tsc file: list_tmsimulator_startposition and list_tmsimulator_view_position

  • Hi folks,


    I am wondering what an element for these collections (list_tmsimulator_startposition and list_tmsimulator_view_position) look like. Or are they currently none-functional?


    Best,

    Micha

    Wish for Aerofly FS 2:

    - Flightpath recording on hard drive and replay in sim from different view points

    - Smoke for aerobatic planes

    - Multiplayer or at least watching other people flying sitting on ground or inside tower

  • Well, in every example I could find, they are empty...

  • Here's a simple one which I made based on an example (don't ask me which one).

    Kind regards, Michael

  • Ah, yes. Again, both lists are empty. You have "just" parking positions. ;)


    Just that you know why I like to examine this sections:


    First I like to add "View-Points" at different positions, not just the Tower.

    Second I like to put the aircraft somewhere in the air as a starting position. (Similar but not the same to the automatic created start position to land on the runway.)

    Wish for Aerofly FS 2:

    - Flightpath recording on hard drive and replay in sim from different view points

    - Smoke for aerobatic planes

    - Multiplayer or at least watching other people flying sitting on ground or inside tower

  • To clarify: The view positions do not have any functionality yet? I assigned a few of them using the entries in one of the default airports as an example but I'm not able to circle through those views in Aerofly (or I'm simply too stupid to find the right keyboard assignments?).

  • I haven't tried yet defining views.

    Regarding positions, just have a look at the tsc file of any stock aerodrome from IPACS, you'll quickly get the right structure.


    I haven't tried yet defining airborne start positions, that's a good idea.


    Cheers

    At the moment only the tower view is used.
