PMDG Terrain radar with ORBX FTX Global

Recommended Posts

Would anything they've done to develop FTX Global cause any issues with using the Terrain radar in the NGX and (soon) 777?

 

Cheers,

Luke

Shouldn't they're just textures. It would be like how many of us use GEX now.

I am no expert, but I guess FTX Global will do no harm to the terrain awareness... since 1. FTX Global isn't about mesh, but rather about textures and maybe a bit of landclass and 2. the terrain awareness relies on PMDG's database, which is "independent" from FSX...

Gents-

 

We have no idea what you are talking about because there is no terrain radar...

 

(Are you talking about terrain awareness?  Yeah.... thats done using data, not radar... radar is unfeasible because you'd have huge blank spots behind any rising terrain.  LOL)

 

But to answer the actual question:  No.

I'm sure you're aware there's no mesh in FTX Global. But I see why you might be asking. Maybe there's extra tall autogen added that would not be visible in the terrain radar database? Unless its REALLY tall I don't think we need to worry about it. If it was a real problem I think orbx would have mentioned it. You should have collisions turned off anyway. I don't think you can hit autogen with it turned off

Luke what you don't know is that the T7 is released, and we're all enjoying it...but your mind is stuck in the development phase still,you went a tad crazy waiting and your mind has gotten stuck in place and time.

 

Basically PMDG fried your brain..oh well keep your chin up!

These 'tutorials' are going to be 'sow ejumakatchonal'....

 

Probably because 99.9% of these so called 'tutorials' are created by spotty 14-18yr old lads with hoarse voices...with little explanation behind their methodology - they do the things the way they do 'just because'

I rest my case.

Ohhhhh you're moaning at me because I called it a radar and not a database. My dear, sincere apologies  <_<  :lol:

Add the 'white jacket' to your description ...   :rolleyes:

 

To do some justice to Luke, there are addons around which simulate the database approach but actually read the sim scenery to collect the terrain data: In that case modifying the scenery (different mesh, for example) does change the depiction of your TERR ON ND.
