The idea would be to control the AI traffics ( creation, animation and deletion ) from an external program with the telnet interface. Someone ask me if it is possible lately, and I think he is prepared to do the required changes. I already suggested him to design new commands for creation/deletion and use the properties for animation. They would be 'run' from the telnet prompt. -Fred _______________________________________________ Flightgear-devel mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://mail.flightgear.org/mailman/listinfo/flightgear-devel 2f585eeea02e2c79d7b1d8c4963bae2d
