Just the distance Mama, Just the Distance.

I have been wondering about this....you know those little red text markers that you can use for AI aircraft flying around you to help you to identify their tail numbers and distance? Is there a way just to have them display their distance? I don't care about the tail numbers, but I like to be able to see how far they are away from me. Just wondering.[br][br][div align=center][br][link:members.cox.net/fstimes/wetimage.html]Click Here For Weather Image of the Day!

I assume that if you leave only a space in the reg number area of a flight plan that FS would display only the distance info. If TTools chokes on this, you may be able to put only a period or dash in there instead - it would be hardly noticeable. Since (for airline flights) ATC doesn't use the reg number, this shouldn't have any other bad effects (AFAIK). However, for GA flights this wouldn't work.There are now programs that let you change reg numbers in "batch mode" (like AIRegGen: http://w1.858.telia.com/~u85825997/AIRegGen/Index.htm), so this shouldn't be too hard.Hope this helps,-- Tom GibsonCalifornia Classic Propliners: http://www.calclassic.com/Cal Classic Alco Page: http://www.calclassic.com/alco/Freeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.com/ San Diego Model RR Museum: http://www.sdmodelrailroadm.com/Drop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___
