Re: V5: (Default) Fire and Smoke effects broken

Hello, We'll have improvements for some cloud/transparent sorting issues with Enhanced Atmospherics in the next hotfix. What specific effects are still showing color issues? Regards, Rob McCarthy Hello Beau, Rob, many thanks for your consideration and efforts! All of our own fire effects are showin...

Re: V5: (Default) Fire and Smoke effects broken

Also, black smoke particles become fully transparent when "Enhanced Atmospherics" is turned on:

Re: V5: (Default) Fire and Smoke effects broken

Hello @ll, unfortunately this issue has not been fixed in 5.0 HF1. Changing the default effects parameters may partially mask it, but we are not using those. Besides, you can still see it happening in the default effects too. The issue is, that the color cycling from "Color Start" to "Color End" doe...

Re: SimConnect_Text Freezes v5

Hi, I ran into the same problem, looked like some kind of race condition to me. Are you updating the text very frequently, for example every visual frame, while setting the display timeout to "indefinitley" (0), or can the update happen while the previous text is still up? If you do, slow it down, u...

Re: Setting up camera intrinsic parameters

Hello, you will probably not be able to solve this with CameraConfiguration assets. Take a look at the Observers instead, and how they are managed with a SimConnect client program. I think that they have a few of those parameters that you are looking for. But you will have to make assumptions about ...

Re: New dynamic lights parameter missing in Doc

Hello simbol, So there they are. OK, but I was talking about the description of the .fx file further down on the page. That they are on a tab of the Visula FX tool is great, but it would still be nice to know where those parameters go in the .fx - especially when you have a lot of effects that are e...

IsSelectableVehicle no longer working?

Hello @ll,

title says it all. The "IsSelectableVehicle" in the aircraft.cfg doesn't seem to be working in V5, all vehicles are always present in the vehicle selection dialog.

Best regards

V5: (Default) Fire and Smoke effects broken

Hello @ll, initial tests in P3D V5 showed colored artifacts over our fire effects. So we checked out the default effects, and they show the same problems. This is a screenshot of the default fx_ForestFireMedium effect: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49780140132_e92b43c457_o.jpg Is this somethin...

Re: Open documents in VR prepar3d natively

Hi, Question: can you open the P3D kneeboard in VR? (I really don't know). If you can, maybe the freeware Lorby Scratchpad can help. The app comtains an editor for the P3D kneeboard (which is in HTML format), and with a bit of work you can add your documents there. Best regards Oliver Binder Lorby-SI

Re: Models flickering in Targeting Pod Camera - UPDATE

Any recommended settings to reduce the effect to a possible minimum value? Hi, To be honest, I haven't really looked into this. I just have the same effect in my own apps when zooming in too much on a moving simobject. Normally I would try changing the clipmode of that camera, but since the targeti...

Re: Models flickering in Targeting Pod Camera - UPDATE

Hi, this is not limited to the targeting pod. The same flickering happens when you zoom in a camera to a very high level and something is moving (either you or the object that you are watchin). This is most notable on certain AI aircraft (for example the CH-53 is exceptionally bad), but I am also se...

Re: accessing gps data externally for accessibility add-on

Hi, 1. Don't think so. All there is are the "GPS..." simulator variables that you find in the learning center. 2. No, all the variables are read only. But you could try and inject a new flight plan, built on the fly from the data at hand? 3. I guess that you would have to write your own wrapper in C...

Fixed CameraDefinition: functionality changed?

Hello @ll, it looks like P3D 4.5 HF2 does no longer understand FixedLatitude and FixedLongitude in decimal notation - it has to be hemispheric (N/E/S/W prefix) A camera that has decimal lat/lon will end up at the default coordinates 0.0, 0.0 when called up in the sim. The spec still lists both optio...

Re: "Protecting Content" feature request

Hello Rob and @ll, I have recently developed a content protection system for simulator assets. It makes certain that only a running P3D process can read your content (=everything that you can establish as an AddonComponent in a package). If you'd like to know more, just send me a message.
