SCASM Dynamic Scenery: Difficult Macro with MonitorRWY

Recommended Posts

Hi!I want to design working holdingpoint lights for my first scenery.If the RWY is in use, red lights should appear, if the RWY is free, they should disappear.So, is it possible to do this with the MonitorRWY command? Is it possible within a dynamic scenery file, that a library-object is called even after a MonitorRWY Command and not just with the CallDLibObj at the beginning of the dynamic scenery?Yours,Klaus

Hello Klaus,unfortunately I have no complete answer to your question.But some remarks...- As far as I know, dynamic object have to be defined at the beginning of the scenery code (with CallDLibObj etc.) - its the initialisation- it seems not possible to switch them on and off (appear and disappear)These leaves in my opinion two ways to solve your problem:- Move these lights away/out of sight (for "lights off")- look, how the problem of lights it solved for day and night. I believe there are some threads for turning off airport lights during the day etc. If it is possible to switch your lights for day or night time conditions, it should be possible to do the same for MonitorRWY checks.Regards,Edgar

In coding these patterns you can make tests such as:- is any dynamic object inside a box?- is YOUR OWN AIRCRAFT inside a box?But in normal static scenery I think that you can only test:- is MY OWN AIRCRAFT inside a box?I doubt this is useful for your hold lights problem. Please note that I am only making a guess - I did not try the MonitorRWY!Regards, Luis

Hi,Thank you very much Luis,Bender and Edgar. Now the lights are working right. To move the lights outside the airport to an invisible area was the solution!The MonitorRWY command works fine combinated with a VectorJump for the lights-visibility.Yours,Klaus

Klaus,Does the MonitorRWY responds to AI aircraft as well?Regards, Luis

Hi Luis, I'm sad too, but the MonitorRWY command doesn't work with AI-Traffic. In a few days I will look if the command works right with online traffic (VATSIM).Regards,Klaus
