[Temporarily Resolved] Tower Position, FlightGear 3.6

Postby C-PIER » Thu Aug 27, 2015 2:42 pm

In FG 3.4, the camera, in the Tower View, was precisely positionned according to the line coded 14 of the apt.dat, i.e. this line:
14 46.79227400 -071.38345100 85.0 0 ATC Tower ( 85 feet above the ground level ).

In my test version of FG 3.6, the camera in now positionned at an altitude kept in the line coded 1 of the apt.dat
1 244 1 0 CYQB Quebec Jean Lesage Intl

and at a longitu/lattitude witch is found anywhere un the apt.dat.

This cause a serious problem with my own towers models I added in my sceneries.

I moved slightly my tower models to the tower position (lon/lat) seen in the sim properties, I ajusted their height in the line nombered "1" concerned in apt.dat, and all is OK...
For the moment (after 3 days of try), FG 3.6 is all I can hope. All the infos transmitted via httpd is very very useful and interesting...
All my congratulations.
