Re: Carrier landing scenario

Applying the brakes does not hold the plane on the deck. If the plane is turned perpendicular to the carrier and stopped the carrier continues to move and the plane falls off the aft so it is 'sliding' sideways along the flight deck. BTW, I don't think I mentioned that the plane starts in the air a ...

Re: Edit the key and button mapping

I found a partial answer:
<Entry>
<Index>3</Index>
<Down>TOGGLE_AIRCRAFT_EXIT</Down>
<DownVal>3</DownVal>
<Value>3</Value>
</Entry>

This entry enables the joystick button 4 to open the bomb bay doors on the F-35.

I would still like to find a description of all of the available tags for standard.xml

Edit the key and button mapping

Hello all, Is there a way to send multiple keystrokes with a single joystick button? I want to be able to map a joystick button to send a TOGGLE_AIRCRAFT_EXIT followed by the number 3 from a single button. Something like: <Entry> <Index>3</Index> <Down>TOGGLE_AIRCRAFT_EXIT</Down> <Value>3</Value> </...

Re: Structured Scenario with Multiplayer not working

This just isn't going to work. I need to be able to have separate window layouts on the two systems which means the scenario files have to be different. If the scenario files are different then the second computer won't connect when using a structured scenario. A non-structured scenario does not sho...

Re: Structured Scenario with Multiplayer not working

Thanks for the response. I found part of my problem, a stale spb file. Once that was deleted the systems connected. Now I find that the aircraft sharing does not seem to be working. I'm still experimenting with settings trying to get that to work. Again, the goal is to have a pilot controlling the o...

Structured Scenario with Multiplayer not working

Hello all, I have a structured scenario where the initial state is the ownship in the air with an ai aircraft directly in front of it. When the scenario loads everything is as it should be. However, if the scenario is loaded from the Multiplayer dialog, the Host computer works fine but the second co...

What triggers a Proximity Trigger

Is there a particular point on the aircraft that has to enter a designated area for a proximity trigger to fire or does it fire if any part of the aircraft enters the area?

Thanks

Re: AI Aircraft direction not matching ownship

Our SME says the symbol that represents the tanker on the TSD should indicate the tanker's magnetic heading, not the absolute heading, so the symbol is not being rendered correctly.

Re: AI Aircraft direction not matching ownship

Thanks for the response. I suspect what I am seeing is correct, I just don't understand the 'why' of it. I have a call in to our SME (he may not get back to me since the contract is up) to ask him if what I am seeing is what I should expect.

Re: Carrier landing scenario

I have a simple scenario with an AI carrier moving at 40 knots using Cattaneo's F-35C as my UserOwnship. The plane lands on the carrier and the hook grabs the cables and the plane comes to a stop. The sim obviously knows the plane has landed and is on a platform but the planes world position does no...

Re: autostart external program

I know I can auto launch a program from exe.xml but that is not scenario specific. Is there a scenario specific mechanism for launching a program?

Re: AI Aircraft direction not matching ownship

I'm adding information and thoughts to my original post. The tanker described in the original post flies true east as expected based on the initial heading and the waypoint having the same latitude as the tanker and its latitude does not seem to change over time. If I let the scenario run for a few ...

AI Aircraft direction not matching ownship

Hello all, I am working on a refueling scenario for the F-35 using a KC135RT for the tanker. For ease of setting up I have both planes at the same latitude with a small difference in longitude (about .5 nm) and both set with a starting direction in the FXML file of 90.0 degrees. Also all of the [pbh...
