Workflow to spawn SimObjects via PDK API

Postby amengol » Thu Jun 21, 2018 3:44 am


I'm playing around with the PDK API and it seems very powerful (Congratulations for that). However, I'm trying to find something similar to the "SimConnect_AICreateSimulatedObject()" function from SimConnect to spawn SimObjects but I can't find the proper method there.

I was under the impression that it would be in the "ISimObjectManagerV400" interface and perhaps the "GetObject()" method, but it needs a GUID and I want to be able to spawn any SimObject, not only those create with the PDK and I can't find GUIDs for say, airplanes or ground vehicles for example to use in that method.

Summarizing, is is possible to spawn objects in the way like in the "AIObjectsAndWaypoints" sample in the SimConnect API or do I have to use the SimConnect API for that? If yes, what would the workflow for that? Thanks in advance.
