• 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.

Turning animated wind turbnie with the wind?

Is there a way to turn an animated wind turbine (rotating rotor) with the wind?

If I tweak the model, the rotor stays in the original direction while the pole turns. :confused:

Anyone? A simple "No" or a "Yes" followed by a procedure would be enough.
If the answer ist "no", my wind turbines will just rotate into one direction all the time - no big problem ...

Yes, it is possible, but you will have to tweak the animation code. See this article for the details. Warning, it is not an easy tweak that you can make with a tool.

Hi,

If you have a model and the source code I would be willing to take a look at it (and share it with the community later). But not the coming two weeks, as I will be moving to another house then.

Wow! That would be great!
I took the wind turbine from http://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6177 (I asked hcornea and ist was ok for him.). The model is for FSX, but by changing the name of the rotor in GMAX to "TICK18..." ist also works in FS9 (which I use).

Ok, I will just wait about 2 weeks and which you "happy moving" :D

I'm glad to say, that I will noch have to move the next 50 years or so ... :)

Sounds good. If I forgot remind me again in a week or so, then I should be back online after the moving.

Humm, did those two weeks pass already? :D

I think that since then I tweaked another wind turbine model already. And if I remember correctly I can share that with the community as well. Let me try to find that one back so I can upload it here.

Bumpdiggity... Wondering if this has ever been released? I'd love an animated turbine that rotates in to wind that I could release some freeware windfarms for the FS community.

I think there is one available. I tweaked on that is used in some Danish scenery and in NL2000.

But there fs2004 tweaks don't work in P3D v2 anymore.
