Re: Client out of sync when players above 7-8

Hello, The host has the ability to set "Update Interval" values when creating a session. By default the Host sends updates every 0.3 seconds and Clients send updates every 0.2 seconds. Are these the values you are using? Does lowering/raising these values have any effect? Lowering these values would...

Re: How to set alpha texture for a model in 3ds max?

Hi han.rohana,

Have you tried setting the "Blend Diffuse by Diffuse Alpha" check box? The Learning Center has several material/texture samples in the "Modeling Materials" article.

Thanks.

Hello,

Also, what type of connection are you using? Is it Direct IP or are you connecting through the Lobby on a LAN?

Re: DLL not found

Hi simskunkworks, Those modules are included with the latest Content installer. If you did a Client only update from v4.0 to v4.2 those would not be included. You can download the Content Individual Components from the Purchased Downloads Page: Install_Content.msi cont1.cab cont2.cab Hope this helps!

Re: radar fields of view

Hi jeladi, Prepar3D does not currently natively render EE PDU's, however the PDK comes with an IObjectRenderer service that allows for primitive drawing in the 3D world (spheres, cylinders, boxes, etc). It should be possible to write a plugin to draw the radar fields if you are able to obtain the in...

Re: Entity State PDU question

Hello, All DIS entity mappings can be found in DISEntityTypes.xml which is located in %PROGRAMDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 . You'll want to remove the HIMARS MTV entry since that object was not shipped with the product. Once that is removed it should fallback to another vehicle of similar type....

Re: Entity State PDU question

Hello, Prepar3D PDU's are currently targeting version 6 in the header, however older versions should still work. If there is an entity type mapping issue, this should be displayed in the Activity Log when it fails to substitute, however I would expect one of the default Prepar3D objects to be substi...

Re: Entity State PDU question

Hello jeladi, Can you verify that you are receiving network traffic from other clients? This can be done using a program such as Wireshark. Are other clients able to see your entity? Prepar3D treats exercise 0 as a special case where it will process all received PDU's from all exercises on the netwo...

Re: Creating objects to place in Sim Director

Hello,

If the BGL is correctly being loaded, the BGL library objects should be listed as a Scenery Object in the Catalog. It should be displayed in the list with the Friendly Name assigned in 3dsMax as the title.

Re: Radio Frequency changes don't seem to work

Hi nickp, You would find these events listed in the SetPropertyAction object. You will need the SetPropertyAction to reference the object you want to modify. You can use the PropertyName search box to help find them. If you search for COM you should see COM_RADIO_SET and COM2_RADIO_SET. You should t...

Re: Creating objects to place in Sim Director

Hi,

Where have you placed your BGL file? Also, are you sure that the compiled BGL is correctly including the MDL file? Could you post the XML file you used with BGLComp?

Thanks.
