Grand Theft Prepar3d v4 ... ?

Recommended Posts

Hello, this is once again a video of the somewhat different kind.

It shows an avatar which is equipped with a flashlight. This flashlight has a dynamic light and thus demonstrates in an impressive and at the same time funny way the new function of the dynamic lights of Prepar3Dv4.

The location is Hengsen-Opherdicke, near Dortmund in Germany West.

Have fun ... ;-)

Very entertaining and a great idea! I wonder, does the light source follow the eyepoint of the avatar or are the arms independently controllable? This would make aircraft exterior checks at night quite immersive.

Unfortunately not, the light is attached to the flashlight, the flashlight is again attached to the hand. But maybe Lockheed Martin is developing something like a real-time motion capture, then you could also move the arms and hands. lol

I forgot to mention that there is an airline pilot with a flashlight. It's Chesley - from the Airport Avatars package from Aerosoft. The package is free of charge and can be downloaded here:

Free avatars from Simware and Aerosoft

Ah, that's unfortunate but hey something is better than nothing. Thanks for the download link, getting it straight away!

The Pro version of P3d has avatars that can use working weapons that cause damage. I'm surprised  that no one thus far, has tried to make a TacPack-aware avatar.

I believe it is Pro Plus version that has the weapons.

Hi all.

There is a new package of civil avatars for P3DV4. The package also includes an avatar (William) equipped with a "dynamic" flashlight.

Download is here: Prepar3D v4 Avatars

The installer supports the installation of extensions as an "add-on package". The extension is entered in the add-on.cfg. The configuration files effects.cfg, scenery.cfg, simobjects.cfg etc, are therefore no longer changed.

regards,
Christian

Very nice.

GTA is still the king of lighting, ambience and textures though

PS

I found a torch. 

It will be great when P3D is up to this level, but we're getting there
