Re: scale

I have made some progress: If I edit the .cx file to reference some existing bmp as Texture, everything is fine. But if I then copy this bmp and edit it in gimp in any respect, I get the attached error message. According to what I see, the modified bmp is still a 256x256 bmp. Is there anything specc...

Re: runway too long

I tried to find the RunwayCreator, but no luck.
Apparently it should be found as part of a 'Scenary Objects Database', but all links are dead.
Any hints on where to download?

Re: scale

O.k. anyway, I scale the objects so that they seem to have the right size relative to the plane when I fly close to them and look from the outside. Another question: I don't manage to assign colors to my objects: Eventhough I create a material with a color in Wings3D and assign it to all faces. The ...

scale

I have the impression that when placing objects in the scenary (e.g. West-Germany 2) they need to be 'scaled up' by much more than a factor of 2. This seems to hold for both, existing objects and objects newly created from wings3d. Is there a general rule how to scale the objects such that they matc...

Re: runway too long

Many thanks for the info. Unfortunately It does not really work for me: I am trying to generate a simple landing mark (Landing-T) to be placed on the ground. I have created two very thin cubes in wings3d an exported the structure as .3ds-file. I managed to call ObjectConverter.exe on that file (afte...

runway too long

Hello, I am quite new to Condor. I would like to make the airport Kirn in West-Germany2 more realistic. I wanted to add more runways (=short grass strips). To this end I have created a new airport Kirn1 in the Landscape Editor and entered all the properties. The blue rectangle is positioned as I wan...

Re: Watch me from outside

o.k., this is great. Thanks a lot! But I always want more ;-) Is there maybe also a possibility to take some situation in a reply (including bank, pitch, speed etc.) and continue an active flight from that point? This would be great for training, e.g. to see how a landing could have been better. Kin...

Watch me from outside

Hello, I am new to Condor and am trying to learn glider-piloting in real life. It would be very interesting for me to watch my recorded flights (and the landing in particular) in the outside view. So far I have only managed to replay my recorded flights with the same view - i.e. if they were cockpit...

cannot use Game Menu

Hello I am new to Condor and just tryinmg my first steps. I am running it on XP on a vitrualbox on a Lenovo T400 under linux - far from optimal, just for a strart. My problem: When hitting ESC in the flight-lesson, I do see the Game Menu, but I can't select anything, because the read mouse cursor st...
