Re: How much does smoke oil weigh ?

Flake, if you would like to do some testing, download my version of the cub that I posted here a few weeks ago. That is the dat I am trying to add smoke to. I think Gunny is right. Smoke is either on and 100kg or off and 0kg. I did some tests with the stock eclipse to try and check this. My test pro...

Re: How much does smoke oil weigh ?

Thx to all for the fast replies. OK, so smoke oil is either 0kg or 100kg. So maybe 100kg is more than the cub can lift. So, i tried reducing the clean weight by 100kg to compensate. This should net out to a zero change in weight. But that made no difference. It still only gets a few feet off the gro...

How much does smoke oil weigh ?

I added 1 smoke generator to the cub. But, when I set the smoke oil weight to anything other than zero it can't hardly get off the ground. I have tried 1kg all the way down to 0.0001kg and it makes very little difference. Even at 0.0001kg I can just barely get it to climb a little with out stalling....

Re: What makes ground object cast shadow?

I tried NOSHADOW FALSE ... no effect.

The answer to the riddle is...
DNM's cast shadows, SRF's do not.

AND... if you don't want the floor of the hangar black, raise it up 0.03m

Re: What makes ground object cast shadow?

I'm sure that's not true for aircraft. Note the notch in the wing's shadow and the prop shadow. I am using the original eclipse_col.srf in the aircraft folder for this model. Take look at the col in an editor and you will see how different it is from the shadow. https://i.imgur.com/GpPE5G4.png Back ...

What makes ground object cast shadow?

I have 5 objects in the same area. Barra tower , 3 different hangars and 2 fuel tanks. The tower and one of the hangars casts shadow. The other objects do not. I searched the forum and found the NOSHADOW parm but I have the opposite problem. I want a shadow and don't have one. https://i.imgur.com/3B...

Re: Scenery Editor normals bug

Thanks Gunny. That is exactly what I was looking for. A workaround that does not require closing and restarting the editor.
You don't need to turn off rectangular regions.
Turning off ground objects is enough.
