buzz Posted January 22, 2004 Report Share Posted January 22, 2004 Pete, I'm developing a PA-28 simulator and all thats missing is a visual system. I have a host aero model, nav-aids, separate instructor station computer, moving map/GPS computers. All I need is a decent low cost image generator. I was quite impressed with FS 2002/2004 visuals. My question is there someway I can set up FS to provide a pure out the window screen, (eyeppoint) and stimulate it from a separate host computer via ethernet data packets. Data such at aircraft position, attitude, weather effects, airfield lighting, TCAS, etc would be encoded in the host and sent to the visual computer. The FS based visual would return data such as Height above terrain, collision detection, laser ranging, etc. Basically, I want to use FS as a visual system just like the big fkight sims do. I would love to work on something like this if it has not been done already as I do this for a living for the big sim companies. Why can't FS be used as a visual system stimulated by an outside host? This would also reduce the computational overhead by turnong off all the other stuff to make it a true 30/60 hz system. Thoughts? Buzz... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
