  1. Cool. Just to confirm the above, we are using also just a single point grid.
  2. I can not exactly say, but there are already question about the function back in 2012: http://prepar3d.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7290
  3. On P3D there is a function for that (SimConnect_RequestGroundInfo, not compatible with FSX), new P3D API. For FSX I create a bogus AI object and query the position at its position (kind of hack but working). For the later I still search a way to create an invisible AI object https://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/threads/invisible-or-very-small-ai-object.442575/
  4. Moved to Main Forum. Please ask questions related to FSUIPC always in Main Forum! Is there a way to get the ground elevation for a given latitude/longitude position. I need to get the current ground elevation (representing the scenery) at a given position, which is NOT my own aircraft's position and NOT the position of another AI aircraft. I know how to do it with FSX and P3d/simConnect, but need a similar function for FS9. Any hint how I can do it (if possible)?
  5. Excellent, that's it. Thanks a lot! Klaus
  6. Hi Volker, I want to set it to an arbitrary path, not to C:\Users\my name\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files When setting it in the path window the changed path settings gets lost - this is my problem. Klaus
  7. I have a very similar problem with FSC 9.2. I get the message "FSX flight plan folder unspecified! Choose <Flight Simulator X Files> manually." as well. Under load/save I do set it to the correct folder (path tab). Once I switch back to the "LOAD" tab and go back to "Paths" -> same issue. The path will always be reverted to c:\users\my name\Documents. This is how it looks in the .ini FPPATH09= FPPATH10=C:\Users\my name\Documents\ FPPATH11= FSCPLANPATH=P:\FlightSimulatorAddOns\FSC9\Flightplan\FSC SQUAWKBOXPATH=P:\FlightSimulatorAddOns\FSC9\flightplan\SquawkBox IVAOPATH=P:\FlightSimulatorAddOns\FSC9\flightplan\IVAO FSINNPATH=P:\FlightSimulatorAddOns\FSC9\flightplan\FSInn I have changed it in the ini directly (P:\FlightSimulatorAddOns\FSC9\Flightplan\FSX) -> no effect. Whatever I do, after I close FSC it is always back to FPPATH10=C:\Users\my name\Documents\ The want-have-path exists, checked several times. FSC runs on a secondary LAPTOP with no FSX on it. But there is a symbolic link to FSX, which is also set in the PATHs tab. I am not talking about a shortcut, is is a real symbolic link making the FSX folder appearing as it was locally installed.
