I've not yet properly dived into aircraft creation but it's something I'd like to try soon.
Every now and then I poke around in the DR400 3DS Max file and try to cross reference it to the TMD, then the Wiki in order to figure out the basics. I know more than I did and less than I want to
One thing that there seems to be no documentation or example of is "digital / LCD" flight displays. Maybe it's the case that they are not possible with the current aircraft SDK. If that's not true:
- How do you hook up a surface in the Max model to be a flight display?
- Can they be resized?
- Can the bezel and buttons be changed?
- Can what's shown on the screen be changed (surely this would require code to be written)?
I did take a look at the TMD of aircraft with flight displays, but I'm still confused.
Second question: Jan ( Jet-Pack (IPACS)) teased us with some screenshots of a GUI aircraft editor a while ago. If this is due to be released "in a few months", I'd gladly wait for it. If not, text editor it is. Any chance of a vague intention of release date?
