Hello, I am in the process of creating custom liveries in order to reproduce an acrobatic patrol with the T-45 but the program does not recognize my liveries. Is there a solution for this? Thank you so much !

HI,
I purchased the latest release for PC. Unfortunately I don’t see some new planes in the community folder (even if they are made by professional developers, it doesn’t recognize the f-15 and others) can you explain?
thank you!

Due to MSFS SDK limitations it’s not possible to get list of the installed aircraft accurately. Airshow tool uses scan feature which may capture some of your installed aircraft, or may not. If you want to add some aircraft into wingmen list – start the flight with it (any livery), open AirshowAssistant toolbar, WINGMEN tab, click on some of the wingmen button (#1 #2 or #3) and ensure this aircraft appear in the list. From now this aircraft will be available for selection.

Tested you product to simulate refueling visual with tornado and a320. Could a separate product be created to add a model for a refuel aircraft and a simple “refuel” in place of “cover me”

Would it be possible to make a tool where the AI aircraft follow the planned flight route so military simmers can practice manually flying formations to a fixed reference?

such feature planned but not in the close future, probably 1-2 months later

Hello I really like this airshow assistant as a add on to the flight sim but I really really want some of the aircrafts to produce different colours so when the other 2 or 3 aircrafts follow me and copy what I do I would like it if the user would be able to select the colour for the selected aircraft so aircraft 1 for example could produce red or blue depending on what colour the user selects so if you think about the red arrows for example they produce red,white and blue i would like the user to select different colors for the selected aircraft please as I believe this would be soo cool thanks.

I understand why you need to set different smoke colors for each wingman, but current smokes system does not allow it. It may be improved in the future, but not in the short terms.

Hello,
With your duplication addon we can’t see the water effects below the boats (boats dlc xbox store) duplicated on xbox serie X.
Will there be a patch for that?

Thank you

well, that is unexpected way of AirshowAssistant usage. what is the boat product name so I can check it?

This boat uses default ASOBO_WATER_CP_LANDING_FX event created for the seaplanes. Due to sim limitation, this effect not applied to the AI aircraft because variable CONTACT POINT WATER DEPTH is not updated. You may contact this add-on developer and request to add workaround for this effect appearance in case of AI, like

(A:CONTACT POINT WATER DEPTH:#FX_CONTACT_POINT_ID#, Keyframe) 0 > (A:SURFACE TYPE:6, enum) 2 == (A:PLANE ALT ABOVE GROUND MINUS CG:6, feet) 2 < and or (A:GROUND VELOCITY, knot) 5 > and

Wingman feature not working in my sim. Is there any known conflicts with other mods? The menu comes up but no aircraft display. Using the paid FS store version I just bought today.

Forgot to add all aircraft in my hanger this tool is not working with.

Please let me know about:

1. is it PC or Xbox
2. which version you have installed
3. how exactly it does not work – you press COVER ME and no aircraft appear?
4. which aircraft you have tried, worth to check some of the default planes with stock livery, like Cessna 152

Hey guys, Just a quick one, Been playing about with the latest release on PC. I have just a few notes to make for possibility for improvments/upgrades.

1. When active pausing the wingman aircraft jolt forward, This really makes getting some of the cool formation screenshots a bit of a pain.

2. If we could get a dedicated trail position for in flight would be awesome. Low Level flight is typically done with a trail formation would be awesome to be able to set this as a default position.

3. Potentially a more delayed reaction time mainly for getting those peeling off screen shots would be awesome.

This addon is incredible and been able to change the aircraft model is insane! Keep up the fantastic work!

Hello, I just downloaded Airshow Assistant 2.7.0….. When I launch FS, a box pops up saying “WASM script isn’t running” and I cant get the box to disappear. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.
