• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Hanger Doors


I've used CAT to attach a Frequency of 112.00 to animate my Hanger Doors. They work fine but the animation does'nt stop it's just continuous, even If I change Frequency the animation just continues, over and over.

How do I put a stop to this?
Normally CAT should be able to do that.

Does the animation start when you tune the frequency or is it already running in that case either?

Else please post the tweaked ASM code CAT made, I can maybe make something out of that :).
it works sort of how it should, The doors are closed on startup, I tune the frequency 112.00 and after about 3 seconds the animation starts but halfway through, then it doesnt stop when the doors are fully open, it loops over and over.

And when i change the frequency it still loops. and if i go to another airport and return it's still looping.

maybe I havent animated it correctly in GMAX.

In CAT I first used the 'Animation Condition Page' and left the other pages blank, but I couldnt compile it with either BGLCOMP or BGLC_9. so I left that page blank and used the next page the ' Animation Trigger page', set it to NAV2 etc etc, this then compiled with BGLC_9.

I used this command line to compile with bglc_9

bglc_9 hdoor_CAT.asm hdoor.mdl

I dont use the command line that much, this was more or less a guess :D

I then dropped the hdoor.xml onto BGLCOMP this gave me hdoor.bgl

I've attached the files, if you try the .BGL the animation is at KSEA

I tested the files on my PC and they work fine.

Could it be that you were testing in an area with a low framerate? In that case the state switching could go wrong.
