Outerra + FSX/P3D using the IGC API

Recommended Posts

The Outerra API includes a IGC (In game Camera) solution, allowing to inject world coordinates each frames. It was developed to allow various partners to plug their own solution and use Outerra as a world rendering engine.

 

An OT user, langdon, developed a small plugin to inject direct FSX/P3D player location (with FSUIPC) using this API. As a result, he is able to use FSX FM and planes on Outerra. Note that only the plane location is shared, not the plane model and the systems. langdon is using a home made set up, with instruments rendered on a laptop for that.

You can find the thread (and the plugin here: http://forum.outerra.com/index.php?topic=2705.45).

 

Some videos of the result in motion:
Langdon used my LFNA scenery and the result seems to match very well, even at runway level.

Very nice, although Outerra already supports JSBsim that is more versatile and superior in every aspect compared to FSX/P3D flight model. I understand however that this is useful if one wants to use FSX aircrafts (rendering instruments on another screen) and Outerra as a world rendering engine.
