Other Aircraft showing at angle in flight v1.4.3

Postby edakridge » Sun Jan 21, 2018 5:03 pm

Other aircraft are showing as flying at about a 45 degree while in flight. We were both using P3Dv4 and JoinFS v1.4.3.

Looks like you have ATC Mode enabled. Try switching it off in the settings.

OK< that explains it. I was running in ATC mode so that I could use the radar onboard the tanker.

Unfortunately, FSX only shows objects on the radar if waypoints are set. And if waypoints are set it automatically enables AI, which conflicts with JoinFS updates. There may be a way around it when I eventually move updates into an FSX plugin, but that's some way down the road.

The radar that we are using in our Tanker/AEW aircraft is the default Tower radar. It was showing my partner who was testing with me no problem and neither of us had a flight plan set.
