Easy Object Designer Helipad Help

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a fix for the problem with helipads designed with Easy Object Designer of falling thru the helipad after setting on it a short time?Also, if anyone could explain why this only appears to be a problem in offline play? Offline, I fall thru within 2 minutes, usually much shorter than that. Online, in a multiplayer session, I don't fall thru, have sat on the pad for 10 minutes or more without falling thru. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.Joe

Hi Joe.You might wany to give us some more info:Is this FS9? Is the pad over level ( flattened ) ground? How big is the pad in meters? What helicopter are you flying?The API is the Area16 SenseBorder(/SetElevation() SCASM command combo. This usually works alright, but pads that are too small will fail. 30x30 meters is about right for a minimum. Pads can be invisible, so the size shouldn't matter much:===================Header( 1 N00:07:30.00 S00:07:30.02 E000:07:30.00 W000:07:30.00 )LatRange( S00:07:30.02 N00:07:30.00 )Area16( N00:0:0.00 S00:0:0.00 E000:0:0.0 W000:0:0.0 ) RefPoint( abs : 1.00 S00:00:00.00 W000:00:00.00 V1= 3000 V2= 100 E= 20 ) AreaSense( : -15 15 15 15 15 -15 -15 -15 ) SetElevation( 20 )End16===================Dick

Hi there,I am making this for 2K2, with possibility of FS9. Yes, the pad is over flattened ground, right at the shoreline so flattened to 0 ft. Didn't know that about smaller pads, these are 20 x 20. Will try a 30 x 30, but it may cause a problem as there are 8 pads in a descending spiral, and they may overlap in places....Joe

Hi Joe.Look at this code by J.R. Morgan:http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...16562&mode=fullflat-roofed, zero-height advanced buildings work great in FS2002, and are easy to make and place in mid-air. ( You'll need to have crash detect ON for them to work right.) You can place old-style polys slightly over them, to make the pad surface ( 0.1 meters or so above them ).Dick
