FSUIPC to draw simple lines in FS2004?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a rather odd question/request, I guess:

Is it possible to use FSUIPC (or something else) to make an external program able to draw simple lines in 3D in the FS environment? No heavy graphics, just simple lines in a preset color from one point (lat/long/height) to another. Not like scenery design, but dynamic lines that an external program can control runtime.

The closest thing I see in the programmer's doc is to use the EFIS (Visual Flight Path), but this is unfortunately not quite flexible enough to meet my needs.

My intentions are to visualize vectors from the aircraft to different navaids in the FS environment, and to indicate the flight path of an aircraft. (I am afraid that just turning on the smoke system will not do the job here :) )

Kind regards,
