Re: Dead Reckoning "Wiggle" on Some Entities/Models

It is both, however I only had time to test and provide results on auto generated traffic on the default aircraft models. I will hopefully have more time to test next week once I install P3D v4 on our systems and provide a more conclusive list.

Dead Reckoning "Wiggle" on Some Entities/Models

Hi Guys, This is a really old issue that dates back to FSX/ESP days and is still in Prepar3D. I was running Prepar3D v3.4 Pro in a DIS environment during a NATO exercise last week and noted that some external models (not ownship) that are viewed in new window views will "wiggle" their wings at a hig...

Scaleform Overlays on Camera Views

Hi, There was a previous topic which stated this from Clifton with regard to the Fury 1500 UAV Panels: "We have plans to allow Scaleform overlays to be applied to a given camera definition. This will allow Scaleform overlays to be applied to undocked views as well as docked views." How is this featu...

Re: DIS Version and other questions

I should have been more specific. Sorry about that. The specific model didn't show up. It was another model. In this case, it was a pickup truck for the T72. I am matching the exact enumeration being sent out from the simulation systems in the DISEntityTypes.xml. Do you have an external DIS simulato...

Re: DIS Version and other questions

Quick update. I also added in the dis_entity_type enumeration into the sim.cfg file of the T72 and it still didn't show.

Re: Allow vehicle change during multiplayer session

Also when in a DIS Network session. This would be a useful feature.

Re: DIS Version and other questions

OK, thanks for the lead on the titles and location. I believe that the DISEntity file is still wrong though. Many of the mappings are appear to be incorrect. I tried several mappings with the enumeration that I know works by just changing the container title to others in the same file and many did n...

Re: DIS Version and other questions

I will need to get to an unclass system to do the wireshark thing so will get back to you. In terms of the mapping, I now believe it is a 3D model mapping issue, not an enumeration issue. If the physical 3D model is not present, it will default to either the radar, or the KingAir 350. It looks like ...

Re: DIS Version and other questions

Hi Clifton, I rechecked the entity enumeration coming out of my other sim and in to Prepar3D and the enumeration is good and I have resolved the enumeration in the DIS entity xml file to the last digit. It is still coming through as a radar and is unchanged. I did the same with another US entity. An...

Re: DIS Version and other questions

Hi Clifton, Hopefully there will be a fix in the next release. If I change the DR algorithm in the gateway I use, I could screw up the other sim systems on the network so won't risk it right now. All sim systems are working OK and I can't change the environment just for Prepar3D at the moment. Lucki...

Re: DIS Version and other questions

After doing some more testing, it is reporting as DIS v6. Some other observations/questions: 1. DIS Entity Dead Reckoning does not appear to be working properly. Entities are jumping all over the place. When I set an external entity (from another sim) to a set group of waypoints in that sim which we...

DIS Features

Hi, To put on to the feature wish-list: Show DIS entities on the 2D Map as entities or Mil Std 2424 symbols, or at least persistent on the globe when zoomed out. Add DIS entities to Traffic/Settings/Vehicle Labels and allow the ability to show: - DIS Enumeration, and/or - Marking, and/or - Applicati...

DIS Version and other questions

Hi, Currently using Prepar3D Pro in a multi-simulator distributed sim test environment. What is the current version of DIS supported? Is it 6 or 7? Are you considering ground clamping for ground entities? (Unfortunately our terrain doesn't quite match so lots of subterranean and floating tanks.) Can...
