A request for 3rd party developers supporting FS9

Recommended Posts

Just a few simple requests to ease the adoption of new addons forFS2004.1.If you make panels...please put the gauges in the same directory as the panel you created. Same goes for complete airplane packages. Thsi saves unwanted gau files in the gauges directory of FS2004. The sim supports this now so hopefully will become standard going forward.Any 3rd party updating their app to FS9 hopefully will do this too. If the user decides to delete the plane or panel, this can be done easily without residue. This especially applies to payware folks who what to use fancy installers.2.If you make Landclass files. Please install to the default scenery directory and No deeper. failure to do this will cause a memory leak.3. If you use an installer...please dont create uninstall and registry notations with it. This is largely overkill and is largely unnecessary overhead for basic installation stuff. For airplanes in FS9, I dont see where this is necessary at all. Just delete the file unless you leave trash on the HD in various directories.4. If you make skins, please make these DXT3 without mips if possible. I have yet to see a set of skins with mips that looked better than a set without them in either FS2002 or FS2004. (granted your mileage may vary.)Eric
