Re. Creating trigger for waypoints

Recommended Posts

Hi there,I am a newbee at creating missions and would be most thankful for a little help on an area which I am not familiar with.I very much enjoy creating a flight from one airport to another and useing VOR's, NDB's and waypoints which I determine, and also giving directions from a cold start. Now before I changed to Microsoft XP Pro and FSX I was able to create this with the ABL program which Microsoft provided but unfortunatly this no longer works in XP.Now I have downloaded and read what tutors are available for creating missions and one thing which I have not been able to get to grips with is this. When in flight and you are approaching a VOR, NDB or Waypoint that is on your FP and you want to create a trigger within say five miles of this point in order to give a verbal warning of a change of course coming up. When I used ABL to select this point I would just place the aircraft in the location that I wanted this warning, get the Lat and Lon and then put this into the Flight Program. The way it was put was that when the aircraft had a Lat or Lon location greater ( or less pending ) than the location selected as a trigger then the warning would be given.Is it possable to program a simular trigger for a mission ?Many thanks in advance.TokTiny

Put an area definition (box) around that point and make it the size you need. You will need a Proximity Trigger and link the area to the trigger. Next, use a Dialog Action as the action for your trigger to give the warning.Gunner
