Re: Change License

Hi chrishchiozza,

To open the activation dialog window again, simply hold down the Shift key when starting Prepar3D. This will allow you to reactivate with a different License ID or activate using a different method.

Re: HF Radio Fequencies

Hello WarpD,

Correct. The BGL frequency attribute supports ranges from 0.0 and 999.992 as well. This feature was first available in v2.1.

Re: Multiplayer Model Distance

Hello,

Do you have any additional information on the model? Does it have LODs?

Do you see this behavior in every camera? Can you see the aircraft's lights or the aircraft's label even though the model isn't rendering?

Thanks.

Re: Implementing lua scripts for temperature adjustments

I've gone through the IRSceneryObject example. It applies temperature scale on the entire scenery right? Yes. That sample is set to use a single material for the entire model. However it is possible to script individual materials within the model. Setting the temperature using 3D modeling tool won'...

Re: Implementing lua scripts for temperature adjustments

Hello, One way to dynamically modify how IR renders an object is by scripting it into the 3D model. The model's materials have a Temperature Scale setting that can be used to adjust the brightness of the material in an IR view. This Temperature Scale value can also be modified by a lua script attach...

Re: Using DIS Engagement Lines for Aircraft

Hello,

The Navigation Visuals UI allows you configure and enable SimObject ribbons. These 3D ribbons follow objects as they move around the world.

Also, the Advanced Configuration section of the Learning Center describes how to further customize ribbon color based on association ID's.

Re: Regarding E:TIME OF DAY with PDK

Hi Benny,

There is a function called GetGeneralTimeOfDay. It is located in IGlobalData.Legacy.h which is the IGlobalDataV400 interface. You should still have access to it from the IGlobalDataV430 interface, however.

Hope this helps.

Re: 3ds Max 2017 crashes while exporting X files (Windows 10)

Hi alpha2echo,

Could there be a system memory limitation that you are hitting during export? Could you try doing an "Export Selected" with half of the scene selected to see if it successfully exports? You could also monitor memory usage using Windows Task Manager.

Thanks.

Re: XtoMdl error P3d 4.5 HF1 SDK

Hi jabloomf1230,

How are you running XtoMDL? Are you compiling the MDL during export from 3dsMax or running it through command line?

Usually an error like that would mean that XtoMDL.exe couldn't load the SlimDX.dll. Can you double check that both files are in the same directory?

Thanks.
