ACP File Question

Post by vmateen » Tue Aug 03, 2021 5:24 pm

Hello, I am currently writing my ACP file and having a tough time figuring out that I should be putting for my arresting wire position. I know there are 6 different measurements/locations that go there, but I have no clue how to find/identify them.

Can anyone clue me in as to how I can do that? I have Blender and the YS Paint Kit tools available, just a bit confused...

The arresting wire is specified by two sets of coordinates, one for each end
ARRESTINGWIRE end1_X end1_Y end1_Z end2_X end2_Y end2_Z
With X being left/right, Y being up/down, and Z being forward/backward

YS being how it is, you can only catch the wire if your aircraft center is above the wire.srf linked in the .acp. The actual cable is just a visual component
