What FSX or Prepar3D versions can support to write Viewpoints?

Recommended Posts

Hello Pete,

 If it is convenient for you, PLEASE you send me a short  METAR  weather example (RVA)  

which can run  at  the B000 for  FSX.   THANKS!

n your FSX SDK, I found the NewWeather.h as follows, have you

NewWeather.c program as example program? THANKS!

No, sorry.

I have not found the Runway Visibility Range (RVA) in  your NewWeather.h head file.

Can I write  values to C800 - CBFF to change RVA?

As I have said before, I am NOT aware of any such facility in FSX ort P3D. did not not read my previous post?

I am out now till the 18th. I suggest you do some research yourself. What do you expect FSX to do with your RVA setting in any case. Just put some fog on the runway only? Surely the RV range is only a report, not a setting? I don't see how it could be set separately to visibility!

Hello Pete,

Just now, I read your previous post: "you'd need to set global Weather mode

and set the weather change slider to zero to prevent the weather you set

from being changed."

Question:  How to set the weather  change slider to zero?

  THANKS,  PETE!

Look in the FSX options. Move the weather change; rate slider to the extreme left!

Or, to do it by program please do read the NWI readme where you will find this:

Quote

NW_DYNAMICS sets the FS2004 dynamic changes option to the value given in the uDynamics field. Write the latter first, then the command (in the same FSUIPC_Process is okay). A value of 0 sets dynamic changes off.

This will be my last reply till at least the 16th as I am away till later that day.

Pete

Hello Pete,

 Thank you very much for you to give me so much help!

 Now I want  to ask you  the following question:

Can I send (write) rain and snow parameters through your FSUIPC to pass to FSX?

If Yes, can you give me a short C sample  codes? THANKS!

Yes, the NWI interface I already pointed you to supports weather settings, or oyu can use METAR strings. Rain and snow are part of the weather. It is all one interface, eventually via Simconnect into FS.

I don't have any specific samples apart from the old ones in the SDK. If you are new to programming you'd probably be better off using .NET and Paul Henty's excellent DLL (see the special Subforum about this, above).

Hello Pete,

 Good Morning!

Thank you very much for your quick reply.

In the past months,  I have worked on your FSUIPC,   I like to program to

interface with your FSUIPC  directly.   I will try your  NWI interface again.

If there are any questions, I expect to get your help.  THANKS!

Hello Pete,

 I have one question to request your help:

Offset 0x0020 Ground Altitude in Meters. Is the Ground Altitude the Elevation of Scenery?

If not,  can I read from your FSUIPC to get the Elevation of Scenery?

THANKS!

It is as it says, the elevation of the ground -- that is the elevation you'd experience on the ground!  It won't tell you the elevation of, say, a skyscraper in the scenery below you!

Does the your Ground Altitude mean  Height Above Terrain (HAT) ?

NO! It is the ground altitude. The altitude of the GROUND. The stuff you can walk on! I don't understand what isn't clear?

Hello Pete,

We use the Elevation, Height Above Terrain (HAT)  and Altitude.  While reading your

0x0020 or 0x0B4C values,   I print  out the reading-values that are always constants.

 THNAKS for your help!

Hello Pete,

There is one question to request your help:

Only after the FSUIPC is registered,  can we use FSX METAR  format 

between the 0xB000 - 0xB7FF to  set  weather cases? 

   THANKS,  PETE!

No. Access to offsets is available to all programs with or without registration. For commercial products a fee is negotiated for commercial use.

Hello Pete,

Thank you very much for your great help in the past.

I use the offset 0x0238 to set the hour of local time (0-23) OK.

Now I want to set (write ) season to request your support.

At the offset 0x0248, the season  values  can only be read, not write.

What the offset can the season  values be written?

 THANKS and BEST REGARDS!

I don't think that can be set. you'd need to set a suitable date -- day number and year, offsets 023E, 0240.

Hello Pete,

Good Evening!

Is it possible to read the height above ground level (AGL) from FSX or P3D?

What offset ?  if Yes.

THANKS and BEST REGARDS!

THANKS PEPE!

You always answer my questions very quickly.

I know the altitude of the aircraft.  How to get (read) the ground?  Which offset?

Best Regards!

Dear MR. John Dowson,

Thank you very much for your help.

Today,  my program reads offset x0020 (4 bytes) or 0x0b4c (2bytes)

to get GROUND ALTITUDE, but these ground altitude values ONLY to show

current runway elevation. During flying, reading GROUND ALTITUDE values always

are same as the runway elevation, no change.

    What is my mistake?

   Thanks and Best Regards!

        Dengxie
