Alejandro,every time you think you know quite much about the capabilities of FLY! there is another surprise - I do hope not the last one!But just one remark for all other FLY!ers who haven't tested until now - you must select vehicles and then Airport fire truck. I first selected Bibers fire truck and FLY's fire truck and was surprised that nothing happend.This is the one you have to select:http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/103904.jpgThank you very much and regardsGeorg HeliFLYer EDDW

Georg,Thanks for the clarification, you're absolutely right. You must first select vehicles.One other thing, the default fire truck incorrectly oriented in the Fly! world so if you try to make it follow a path, it'll do so sideways. This was just a test, and I chose the Fire Truck because of the flashing lights.Regards,http://www.avsim.com/hangar/fly/dfdg/banneraa.jpg

Well, it turns out that all we were missing were an AMP, ann an ELT file. In the amp I just defined a battery and a series of bulbs, which I then setup in the ELT file. Then I added the AMP and ELT entries to the NFO file.Theoretically (I haven't tried this yet), this could also be used with SMFs, the only thing that has to be done is replace the call for the SMF instead of the ACM in the LOD file.Also theoretically, it might be possible to move parts of an articulated model (ACM), it might even be possible to have an engine running that turns a rotor, a propeller or something else that makes things turn, such as for a radar, a windwill, etc.Tonight I'm going to develop a rotating beacon for a lighthouse, I already figured out how to do this with just the AMP and ELT files. Basically, I'll use several (360 or maybe less) lights controlled by tdla (time delays) that create a continuous loop.Any good lighthouse models out there that I can use for my tests? (Steve: hint, hint).Regards,http://www.avsim.com/hangar/fly/dfdg/banneraa.jpg

The good news is that at least some of the electrical messaging system works. Light flashers (flsh) work fine, with which some interesting effects can be created.The bad news is that there may be a problem with the time delay (tdla) subsystem which is what I was planning to use to create the lighthouse. I don't know if it may be possible to control this through a DLL... I doubt it.At least we have lights...Take care,http://www.avsim.com/hangar/fly/dfdg/banneraa.jpg
