Re: Find external SimObjects folder

I have found a SimObjects.cfg file in the Apps directory, but it only contains the SimObjects within the P3D SimObjects directory, no external one. In the add-ons.cfg I can find the application providing the external SimObjects, but how would I know for other apps if those provide SimObjects.

Find external SimObjects folder

I would need to find external AI aircraft (SImObjects folder outside P3D folder structure). I have found something about a SimObject(s).cfg file, but there is no such file in my structure, but there are external AI objects for sure.

How can I locate those folders?

Multiple P3D SimConnect version

I wonder how do you ship your SimConnect applications. In the past we used to have FSX SimConnect still working with P3D, but lacking the new P3D API functions. FSX SimConnect is dynamically linked and did not change over years (since there was no progress with FSX) However, shipment was easy. We co...

Query position on AI "Water drop" object

I wonder what the difference between the AI objects in the MISC folder is. For the "Space shuttle" I can create an AI Object (via SimConnect_AICreateSimulatedObject) and then query the position on that object. But if I use "WATER DROP" as AI object, I can create the object, but can not query the pos...

Re: How to switch to AI traffic views (via SimConnect)?

Thanks for the info. I was wondering if there is a workaround which makes it possible to read all P3D menu entries and trigger those.

How to switch to AI traffic views (via SimConnect)?

When I add AI traffic I have views for each aircraft under "AI traffic". How can I switch to that view from SimConnect. Adding AI like this: const HRESULT hr = SimConnect_AICreateNonATCAircraft(m_hSimConnect, qPrintable(modelString), qPrintable(callsign.toQString().left(12)), initialPosition, reques...

Re: Get ground elevation (altitude) at arbitrary coordinates

I am just concerned about airfields below MSL like here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_p ... _sea_level

Submarines do not matter for me.

Re: Get ground elevation (altitude) at arbitrary coordinates

The elevation fetching works fine, only a few detail questions remain. I just post them here just in case somebody knows Can the elevations be negative? Some place have "below MSL" elevations, so I would expect this. Is there any performance penalty if I use a wider range for the alt min/max values ...

Re: Get ground elevation (altitude) at arbitrary coordinates

I give that a trial (SimConnect_RequestGroundInfo) . What I find a bit confusing is that there are alt min/max values, so a define an area for which I want to get the ground info, but why does that definition need altitude min/max values.

Get ground elevation (altitude) at arbitrary coordinates

I need to obtain the scenery's ground elevation at a given position (latitude/longitude). I found the following thread here: https://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/threads/fsx-question-on-how-to-get-altitude-of-coordinates.19344/#post-127891 Obviously the only way is to create a dummy AI object and obtai...
