Animation tag for cockpit windows ?

Postby Woodylepic » Sun Nov 10, 2013 4:58 pm

Hello I'm working on a Glider and I'm trying to add a custom animated windows in the left side canopy (like Aerosoft Discus glider and some Passager plane have)

The animation In gmax and FSX is ok but I can't figure out what is the FSX tag to get the window animation done, have try, door, lever door, lever exit, This work ok, but this is for canopy animation, I need a separate custom animation for the windows ?


The animation was not made whit the conventional Shift-E-1-2-3

(I have check the Aerosoft Discus and there only 1 exit in the Aircraft.cfg and its for the canopy animation (Shift-E))

Can somebody help me on this ?

Thank you.

Hi just had a look at the SDK DC-3
the rear door is named as "f_canopy_1_400" (400 = LOD 400)
I guess "f_canopy_2_400" for a second exit

With the gmax animation keys
0 - Closed
10 - handle opened
100 - door fully open

with the aircraft cfg file section
[exits]
number_of_exits = 1
exit_rate.0 = 0.4 ; Percent per second

increase exit number
number_of_exits = 2
exit_rate.0 = 0.4
exit_rate.1 = 0.4

Let me know how you get on
