Aircraft Effect Files - What Happens When Missing

Recommended Posts

Gents,

 

Been going through some of my aircraft and have noted that missng effect files are being referenced in the aircraft containers. The question is what effect does it have on the aircraft (if any).

 

Please advise and thanks!

If you're talking about .fx files... I suspect nothing. If the sim doesn't find them... it can't do a thing with them, but they don't actually impact anything.

Yup, FX files...been finding aircraft containers (aircraft.cfg) referencing non-existent fx files. This is pure curiosity, kind of like, noting sim behavior before the sim behaves poorly.

 

Ran into an issue with a scenery which was simply flickering, then the GPS 500 started flickering, and soon afterwards the spot view crept closer, and closer, and closer. Had to drop out of full screen and push the spot out 100 ft. as I was getting a bit claustrophobic. Pulled the scenery, all was hunky-dory again.

 

So appreciate the training session, and will ask the manufacturer if there really is a missing aircraft effect.

Very obscure... If an effect is attached as a light ( [Lights] section ) and the effect is not found, fs will not draw electrical current as specified for the light in the [Electrical] section.

That is interesting. I've never seen an electrical overload or underload before. Never tried the failure flghts before either but will note this.

 

Thanks and Interesting as well...
