Ideas for FFX

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I have a lot of ideas in mind that may be able to take place in a future edition:

- I find that placed fires via Google Earth would be very nice and we would have more precision exactly.

- Creation of an alarm to alert the crew in a multiplayer of a fire departure (so be able to start FirefighterX without fire and then it starts a fire by adding a crew alert).

- On each fire, add the firefighters (fireman with their fire trucks) to the ground: either simply in decoration but if possible, that it can also extinguish the fire.

- Add in the fire editor the ability to export fire into scene FSX, P3D ... to create fires for everyone quickly that don't have the application.

Here are some ideas that come to mind. If some have other ideas, why not put them here. ;)

Good day.

Florent.

Hello Florent,

1. Placing fires on a map: that is a feature of the professional version of FFX. This will not be incorporated into the end user product, sorry.

2. Generally speaking, you can do that by using timed fires. If you set up a scenario where the fires are created at random points in time, you can send one of the players on patrol, as a lookout. In the next version of FFX you will be able to sound a siren from your aircraft, maybe that will spice things up a bit.

3. That would be nice and fairly easy to do - but there are no 3D models of firemen or fire trucks that could be used in a commercial application like FFX. Paying a 3D modeller to create them is out of the question I'm afraid.

4. That would only be possible if the user doing the export has the SDK installed. FFX could create an XML file that you then turn into a scenery BGL with the BGL compiler. But - it will not work either when you don't have FFX, because the BGL would require the native FFX models and the effects. 

Best regards

If you use the WAMA addon from Lorby SI, then you can add minor sceneries using various default/freeware/payware vehicles etc. to create Air Attack Base, Helicopter Base and so on.
