ARGH My email server has been playing up. I can't send mail with outlook so I have to send it through the browser, but then it sends the mail from another address so I can't get onto the lists.
Anyway I have a bit of a backlog of questions. I am trying to put gauges in the virtual cockpits of my R22, Pawnee and C152 but I am having trouble understanding the data format. I can get a gauge to appear but I would like to do some gauges with covers, so the needle appears from under it. I can't find the information in the readme.xmlpanel file. Could someone point me in the right direction? On the same matter is there a way of setting coulours on a gauge to be transperent? Is it possible to animate *.mdl files? I have been trying to animate my R22 which is in .mdl format and made by Abacus FSDS. Here is an example of the code in the /Models/r22.xml file. <animation> <type>rotate</type> <object-name>cyclic</object-name> <property>/controls/flight/elevator</property> <factor>10</factor> <center> <x-m>-0.941</x-m> <y-m>0.0</y-m> <z-m>-0.44</z-m> </center> <axis> <x>0.0</x> <y>1.0</y> <z>0.0</z> </axis> </animation> The model has a part named cyclic but I get an error in the fgrun window saying that cyclic can not be found. When the simulation loads there is no animation of the cyclic. Is there a syntax problem? I have done a fair bit of trouble shooting and have narrowed it down to Flight Gear not being able to find the part. Lastly are there any decent freeware/open source XML editors out there? At the moment I am just using wordpad to edit the XML files.
