How hard would it be to add an animation?

Peter, how hard would it be to add door animations to the list that are visible in JoinFS. We use these animations for the Boom/Drogue in our tankers. Door animations transferred across between players in the default multiplayer. That is why we chose these animations.

The doors are transferred correctly in JoinFS. I'm not aware that it's become broken. I'll check the latest version.

Specifically, it transfers the canopy state which on most aircraft is the main door of the aircraft.

We use Door 3 (Shift+E 4)

Actually, I think this might have come up already. If not with the doors, then it was another variable. Anyway, shouldn't be too difficult to add.

Looking forward to this also... we want to start making AAR with JoinFS & Tacpack... hope we can make a "team" to experiment with this if you wish Peter.

We have been using the freeware refueling gauge from Andy Niko and Jivko Rusev until such time as Peter gets the Tacpack Tanker functions working with JoinFS.

It is not easy, but challenging and a lot of fun!

The Tanker in these shots has the drogue locked out and is an AI put in with CCP. Once Peter gets the door commands sorted, we will be able to actually have someone pilot the Tanker.

I have uploaded a package containing the gauge and install instructions: http://www.mediafire.com/file/kbfg0kvnk ... _Gauge.zip

If You have questions please PM me rather than clogging up Peter's forum.
