I'm not 100% sure since it's been a long time since I last programmed airplanes for rc 7... My guess is that your aircraft is constantly crashing by breaking apart and it's instantly resetting giving the graphics thread no valid data to render.
Check your tm.log file in your user documents aerofly rc 7 folder. Do you see a repeated loading model or placing model message or do you see other error messages?
I am sending in attchment the log file. I cant figure out what is the problem though!
Could be what you said about crashing as I am starting to place it.
I'll keep working on it!
all right... I am making progresses!!
I can see the scenery now, but not the aeroplane.
I am still having some problems with some geometry, which when I add crash the software.
I used a different strategy this time, I broke the full TMD file in several small ones by sections, which after I am joinning together.
I hope it is going to help me find the geometry problems!
the order that we assemble the parts is important? Should I make the joinlinear connections first than the collisionhull declarations?
Failed to create tmreceiver, you probably have a syntax error on the receiver object in the tmd file...
I dont have receiver yet!
Maybe I have to put everything together later. Because now I have several files with all the elements.
1 file for rigidbody
1 file for collisionhull
1 file for rigidbodyGraphics
There is only one file that the aerofly opens - you need to have all objects in the same tmd.
Yeah I know, this is just to make it easier to follow all the parts.
By the way, I entered the receiver and that error is gone...
Now there's another one,
no ground start position found for model 'hurricane'...
How do we define such position? I was thinking about this line, that is on my TMD
<[vector3_float64][LookAtPosition][0 0 0]>
But no luck!
The initial placement is done using the tmc file. There are contact points that need to be placed "under the wheels", the model type has to be set correctly and wing span etc. should be entered correctly as well.
