I assume you've seen the stickied post on ASM based scenery. If not, it says the P3D team isn't going to look into rendering problems caused by asm based scenery, but I figured it might be worth looking into a bit for a content side issue. Sorry! The new way to do this in P3D for proper rendering is...

mir flightbeam, I've tested KDEN on P3D 2.4 and I see that some tarmac textures have shadows but other that don't. The odd thing I noticed was that the ones that don't seem to have shadows, show a shadow on the lines or parking placements. I'll have to look into the files a bit more to see if i can ...

Hi Alexis, those aircraft specific variables will not work with Boat SimObjects. There are a handful of variables specific to aircraft carriers which you can see listed in the SDK Learning Center.

You can use FWTools to translate the jpeg2000 to geotiff using gdal_translate. I haven't tried this, but it looks like it will work. I don't have any new tutorials on this step, but I double checked myself by reading this post http://gis.stackexchange.com/questions/26040/batch-convert-jpeg2000-to-ge...

You can only download JPEG2000 now. So you'll have to add a step in FWTools to convert from JPEG2000 to geotiff.

The solution which many 3rd party developers use is to create 3d models for the stanchion poles and use custom emissive textures for lighting. This is a good feature request though! We need to come up with a solution that will look good for all 24000 airports (OK not all of them have lighting :))

Well it is not an oversight because I can't find the source. I don't have a reason for why it wasn't given to us (Lockheed Martin) to use in Prepar3D. Thanks for letting us know. Was there any special functionality tied to the barges?

Hi Ron, I'll look into it and get back to you. I don't recall removing any barges but we did alter the pylons to remove some branding.

EDIT: Forgot to ask, Ron do you remember what the friendly name of the barge was?

Hey, i'll ask a developer with 3dsMax 2015 on the Prepar3D team to check. I'm stuck with 2012 at the moment, and not having issues.

BSeltz, are you able to open the missions in SimDirector now to check the property triggers? Check the SimDirector validation button to see if it prompts any errors / warnings. You could also try and run it in preview mode with some watch variable set up to test.

Geoff - we provide the SDK as a means to edit and create your own content for Prepar3D.<br /> <br /> Part of this is creating new .xml entries in the Prepar3D .xml schema. so you can modify and / or create new airports.<br /> <br /> Since I'm a scenery technician not a lawyer, I'm hesitant to commen...
