Hi eekpo,

MPmap icons are defined within Multiplayer server.
Each specific icons are defined in this file : http://mpmap02.flightgear.org/fgmap.js

See this section :
Code: Select all
var FGMAP_CRAFT_ICON_PREFIX = "images/aircraft_icons/";
var FGMAP_CRAFT_ICON_SUFFIX = ".png";
var FGMAP_CRAFT_ICON_ZINDEX = 5;


var FGMAP_CRAFT_ICON_GENERIC = "generic/fg_generic_craft"

var FGMAP_CRAFT_ICON_HELI = "heli/heli"
var FGMAP_CRAFT_MODELS_HELI = [ "bo105", "sikorsky76c", "ec135", "r22", "s76c", "Lynx-WG13", "S51-sikorsky", "CH47", "R22", "apache-model", "uh-1", "uh60", "OH-1" ];

var FGMAP_CRAFT_ICON_SINGLEPROP = "singleprop/singleprop";
var FGMAP_CRAFT_MODELS_SINGLEPROP = [ "c150", "c172p", "c172-dpm", "c182-dpm", "c310-dpm", "c310u3a", "dhc2floats", "pa28-161", "pc7", "j3cub" ];

var FGMAP_CRAFT_ICON_TWINPROP = "twinprop/twinprop";
var FGMAP_CRAFT_MODELS_TWINPROP = [ "Boeing314Clipper", "Lockheed1049_twa", "TU-114-model", "b1900d-anim", "b29-model", "beech99-model", "dc3-dpm", "fokker50" ];

var FGMAP_CRAFT_ICON_SMALLJET = "smalljet/smalljet";
var FGMAP_CRAFT_MODELS_SMALLJET = [ "Citation-II", "Bravo", "fokker100", "tu154B" ];

var FGMAP_CRAFT_ICON_HEAVYJET = "heavyjet/heavyjet";
var FGMAP_CRAFT_MODELS_HEAVYJET = [ "boeing733", "boeing747-400-jw", "a320-fb", "A380", "AN-225-model", "B-52F-model", "Concorde-ba", "FINNAIRmd11", "MD11", "KLMmd11", "737-300", "787", "777-200", "747-400", "737-100", "737-400" ];


var FGMAP_CRAFT_ICON_GLIDER = "glider/glider";
var FGMAP_CRAFT_MODELS_GLIDER = [ "hgldr-cs-model", "paraglider_model", "colditz-model", "sgs233" ];

var FGMAP_CRAFT_ICON_BLIMP = "blimp/blimp";
var FGMAP_CRAFT_MODELS_BLIMP = [ "ZLT-NT", "ZF-balloon", "Submarine_Scout", "LZ-129", "Excelsior-model" ];

var FGMAP_CRAFT_ICON_CARRIER = "carrier/fg_carrier";
var FGMAP_CRAFT_MODELS_CARRIER = [ "mp-nimitz", "mp-eisenhower", "mp-foch" ];


/* Specific aircraft (non-photo) icons */
var FGMAP_CRAFT_ICON_OV10 = "ov10/ov10";
var FGMAP_CRAFT_MODELS_OV10 = [ "OV10", "OV10_USAFE" ];

var FGMAP_CRAFT_ICON_KC135 = "kc135/kc135";
var FGMAP_CRAFT_MODELS_KC135 = [ "KC135" ];

var FGMAP_CRAFT_ICON_CH53E = "ch53e/ch53e";
var FGMAP_CRAFT_MODELS_CH53E = [ "ch53e-model" ];

var FGMAP_CRAFT_ICON_E3B = "e3b/e3b";
var FGMAP_CRAFT_MODELS_E3B = [ "E3B" ];

var FGMAP_CRAFT_ICON_ATC = "atc/atc";
var FGMAP_CRAFT_MODELS_ATC = [ "atc-tower", "atc-tower2", "mibs", "atc" ];


You can see icons here :
http://mpmap02.flightgear.org/images/aircraft_icons/(1).png

Replace the (1) by "heli/heli", "singleprop/singleprop", "twinprop/twinprop" ... like this http://mpmap02.flightgear.org/images/ai ... i/heli.png

In order to change the defined icons (for example the Robinson R44 appears as an aircraft) you need to modify the MPMAP project here : http://pigeond.net/git/?p=flightgear/fg ... ;a=summary
The fgmap.js is here : http://pigeond.net/git/?p=flightgear/fg ... ;hb=master
But I don't know how to change it...

Cheers,
Clément

Nothing stops you from mailing the mpmap maintainers (via the mailinglist for example). They'd happily give your aircraft the right icon...

Hmm, No, thanks :)

That's not the most flexible solution, mainly in a free world, we mean out of the Flighgear restrictive policy ( a least that we have understood ).

Best regards.

If we'd only go for the best/nicest solution, most FlightGear wouldn't exist...
Sometimes you do things, just because they work. Not because you particullary like the way they "look".

As long as no-one adds some function to the mpmap source (which is freely accessible, also for you) that can retrieve the icon-type from, say -set.xml, we're stuck with this "restrictive" method.
But it's your decision, your time, your wish. I'll just be quiet ;)
