• 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.

Model Behavior XML specialist for MSFS models (LVARs)

Messages

My modeler is having difficulty figuring out the new Behavior XML code/structure for MSFS models, so we can trigger animations via LVARs.

We need someone who can walk him through the process for working with these new Model Behavior xml files.

We'll pay you for your time.

Thanks,

For understanding.

Basic part is "It's written at Reverse Polish"

If saying about XML codes built in to the MDL file.
Just write it in the Modeldef.xml

And structure of XML .. see Modeldef.xml then can know where to write in.
And to register , make a GUID by GUIDGEN.

If I read that correctly, then it's about the MSFS and not the FSX / P3D. The application of the RPN code is somewhat the same, but with MSFS there is no longer ModelDef.xml or it is an outdated technology. With MSFS, no MDL files are generated but glTF models are generated and the LVAR / RPN code is not in the glTF files but the LVAR / RPN code is in an XML file.

If there is someone who can start an animation using the LVAR code, he will inform himself here for free. I'll ask a friend of mine if and how it works :)

That's correct, our models are designed exclusively for MSFS using glTF.

This is not for FSX/P3D.

My modeler has basically no background in flightsim... and modeling is greek to me.

We already have the model working in MSFS... we just need someone who can hold his hand for an hour or two and show him how to create the associated XML file for the GlTF MSFS model so we can trigger animations via LVARS.

If that's you, PM me. I'll pay you for your time.

Cheers,

Tonight I have a little time to take a closer look at the matter. I have already tinkered with a first draft of a code. The information in the SDK is already very detailed, but it is not always easy to find it. Contact me again later.

Hello Bryan.

We tried everything, but it didn't work. Perhaps it is currently not possible to implement this with the help of SImobjects and a ModelBehavior/Animation Code. This could possibly be solved with a self-created WASM module :)

Best Regards
Christian
