Whats happend to the days of moving road networks?

Recommended Posts

You might recall that in the days of FS2000, we had road networks with moving yellow dots depicting cars on the roads.Isn't it possible to change the default FS2002 roads to do something like this, or better?CheersWill

I'm using some 3rd party FS2K scenery with FS2002 which overlays these roads and still has moving car lights. But they are drawn from "dot to dot" in straight lines, which looks less realistic from higher altitudes.L.Adamson

These files are bgl. files simply placed into the add-on scenery file. I have no idea of their inter-workings. They were from Orlando Sotomayor's FS2K sceneryL.Adamson

HmmmmmmI wonder if its possible to create an animated BMP or r8?If so,,,,, then this could be sorted out proberly by myself personally, and i'd be able to create something quite realistic, if all this is possible.They could be used to replace ALL default roads and you'd have roads with moving cars, lit @ nightWill

Too bad real car models couldnt be used instead of little dots. But i imagine the framerate would suffer.... Oh well.Oh BTW,,i keep hearing of FS2004, is there any screenshots of this new MS game or is this just a dream?:D

FS2004There are some rumors flying around, such as only gmax files will work in FS2004. However, that's just like saying you can only paint walls using a roller and that brushes will no longer work.Too early to speculate till after CFS3 is released.
