Need help with AI in mission
Am building a mission. Need help with making an AI work.
Scenario: F-18 aerial refueling off a KC-135 with Navy drogue. Would like to have the KC-135 as an AI already on the tanker track at start of mission. F-18 takes off, flys 100 nm, finds the tanker, plugs, then returns to base.
Will use the FSX F-18 and freeware KC-135. Already loaded KC-135 and have operated it alone in free flight.
Design approach: Make the KC-135 an AI. Start mission with it flying 300 at 23,000 ft. It flies between a number of tanker track defining waypoints. Will use the mission compass to provide continous range and bearing to tanker once the F-18 is airborne.
What I've done so far:
- Created mission Data
- Created AI object
- Created AircraftAI Object and waypoint list.
- Think I created a Point of Interest pointing to the KC-135.
Problem: When the mission starts the KC-135 is at the same location as the F-18 - the departure end of the mission runway. The compass is correct in that range is zero and bearing makes sense for two objects at the same point. (By the way the F-18 is actually inside the KC-135 cargo area. Didn't know the model modelled the fuselage interior. Very nice work by the way).
1. Any ideas why the KC-135 AI wouldn't be flying?
2. Do I have the point of interest correct in that it can be configured to always track a moving AI?
