Now that's just strange. All animated doors need is just like every other animation: a pivot point that is aligned properly, and a few lines of code to drive it.

its much more complicated, alot of additional work regardig texturing have do be done, its easier to let the doors closed 😉 in my experience 1 day work incl. animation for one door and then it have to be bind to the whole system, incl network because of multiplayer.

- will i be able to switch planes without going to main menu?

- is there going to be a replay function?

Yes to replay function, yes to tropical water in trailers. Both are coming eventually without release dates. The tropical water atm is based on real Bing depth data, but a lot of that data is corrupted in the world and in those places it defaults to deep. Going through and manually fixing many of those places.

This has been a frustration in the beta. We keep telling them that this is a world-wide issue that needs to be handled at the macro level (i.e. a global tree height limit) and they keep saying "send us pictures of individual areas."

Misinterpretation of certain ground features by the AI is also a problem, when it puts trees in areas that don't have trees, and in some cases, don't have vegetation at all. Wait till you see the forests of Iceland.

@Nedo68 - I've been modeling and programming for flight simulators for nearly twenty-five years, so I do know just how much work is required. It's not the modeling task that's preventing the door operation...

...it is that they have not written the core sim's token variables and event commands for the doors apparently.

Texture wise, both the exterior and interior are already done, so all that is left would be the edges of the doors; a rather trivial task...

I'm in the beta, though I haven't went to Iceland.

But I'm much more forgiving of AI mistakes like that. I don't expect them to hand annotate and fix the whole planet. But limiting the tree height on a macro level should be expected given how big of an issue it is around airports.

The simple answer is that they simply shouldn't have 300 foot tall trees in the asset library.

This is something that boggles my mind as well. Why do they even have these types of trees if the tree height data is impossible to get? Just like with water depth defaulting to deep if no accurate data is available they should go for average tree height if they have no data available.

I wonder if the lack of opening doors applies to default aircraft only?  Ie does the sim allow 3PDs to add opening doors?

They contacted every airline in an effort to get their liveries and just need to wait for a response to get them licensed! Sounds like airlines aren't being very responsive.

That’s gotta be impossible surely. I mean how many airlines are there!?
