[Answered] Adjusting AI planes mandatory?

Recommended Posts

Still one open question (without having tried the product yet): does this wonderful tool need some adjustments on the level of the AI planes? Or does this work with all AI models "out of the box" no matter what kind of effects the AI planes use and how their aircraft.cfg is composed? Sorry if I ask something that is absolutely clear or already discussed several times...

Regards

AnkH,

Many thanks for your question, please see below my answers:

1) You can use it with any level of AI.

2) You can use it with any AI that you have installed, the only requirement is that the AI plane must be done in accordance with PD3V4 SDK instructions, this means the lights have to be attached using attachment points linking an effect or configured using the Aircraft.cfg file. If you have any AI model with embedded lights as textures, without using LM PD3V4 guidelines, the lights will not be displayed for that particular model.

3) The "Freeware" works with any AI model that is using the standard navigation lights configuration (most freewares and payware AI tools do), it has been tested with the most common AI freewares available in the market (WOA, FSAIB, etc), an also the most common payware AI packages available on the market like Traffic 360, Just Traffic, UTL, etc..

I own UTL and it works perfects with it, I highly recommended it.

I hope this helps to clarify.

Go an try it, it is free!!!, if you don't like it don't keep it :laugh:

Regards,
Simbol

That's perfect, thanks for clarification. I might have to check some of my AI planes nevertheless, I am not entirely sure that they all use the standard effects, I might have adjusted them to use the 3D shockwave lights some time ago (back in my FSX days). Well, won't take that long to revert them all to use the standard light effects.

A general question - I notice the installer is hard coded to C:\ProgramFiles - do you have any plans to make that user selectable? There are many who control their add ons install directories and do not like them installed on the C drive.

Thanx,

Vic

If you want to move it now send me a PM and I can give you instructions, this way you don't need to wait that long.

I hope you enjoy the product.

Hi Simbol,

I think that if I copy the files to the P3Dv4 effect folder adfter install it will work..

Not recommended as you will override your default effects and will be unable to uninstall the lights in the future.

Surely I will make a backup of the effect textures that will be overwritten.
