XREF library objects that don't show off

  • Dear IPACS team,


    The XREF library is pretty cool and quite straight forward to use, at least for 3DSMax users (I think we should imagine a dummy we place without 3D modelling tool, for instance via MCX, but that's another topic).


    I could easily populate my test bed AD with several of your object. Some of them however won't display in AFS2, despite placed in the same object group as other objects from the same library that properly show up on my AD.


    I haven't tested them all, but at least the following items form the xref_usa_airport library don't show up in my AD:

    - suv_big_01_virtual

    - suv_big_02_virtual

    - TankTruck_virtual

    - TankTruckTrailer_virtual


    Other items form the same library work properly, so it's not just the complete library.

    I double-checked the object name spelling (copy-paste from the library).


    Thanks in advance for having a look at it.


    Cheers

    Antoine

  • There are also missing objects in the "xref_usa" library. This is a pending matter IPACS was supossedly working on for weeks. In fact, back in January Rodeo was very helpful on identifying the missing textures in the different sets.

    Now, I guess the only thing they should do is to upload the updated xref libaries.

  • XRef objects from our USA set referenced lets say in Europe are not always working as we load those XRef objects only if we are close to the USA region.


    One can manually fix this by editing the ref TSC file but this will not work after an update.


    We are aware of this and we change the XRef system, so more objects of our library are available all over the world.

    It's done, or still pending?. Sorry for asking, but you kindly tell us something more specific?.

    Welcome, Antoine.

    As for creating new airports, I don't know if you've seen the thread about the new FSCloudPort here in the forum. This web tool allow the creation of airports in AFS2 in minutes with the clicks of your mouse.

    Try it, will not be disappointed at all!.

  • I think those hangars are specific to the Switzerland DLC. Rodeo is getting very good at building unique 3d objects. He may be able to build these military objects for you to add.

  • There are many nice objects in the xref files that could be used to enhance the scenery. I mainly work with objects from the xref_ch directory. However some objects do not show up in scenery (e.g. samedan houses). Others show up very nicely (see picture below of a saanen house which I set just for test purposes).

    What is the reason that some do not show up?


    Best regards,

    Thomas
