Spawning at custom Helipad

11 Apr 2021 10:39 #50190 by quagga
I have built a model of the Piz Gloria restaurant (of On Her Majesty's Secret Service fame). I can land on it OK ... well most of the time ;) , and I have added it OK as a helipad in a custom scenery NavData/apt/LSXF.dat file, but when I attempt to spawn there, I fall through the building and crash into the mountain surface underneath. Is this something to do with the building being created too late in the start up sequence? Is it fixable?
Thanks, Al

It might be to do with the AGL height set for the pad. If you dont set it, you spawn at the location but at Ground level. Same issue with trying to spawn on the lighthouse Helipad at Bishops Rock.

I followed this tutorial wiki.flightgear.org/Howto:Make_a_helipad#Creating_the_model

I have tried fiddling with the AMSL height of the helipad in the first line of the .dat
file, but to no avail.
