FSX Meridian FCLP add-on now vLSO compatible

Ok, guys
At last uchi's FCLP add-on to FSX NAS Meridian now gets its Mk14 IFLOLS and becomes vLSO compatible.

First, visit uchi's page and follow his instructions on downloading and installing the mod.
Then download my small pack from the sidebar and unzip it to the scenery folder. For your convenience I've created two command files to add and remove the IFLOLS. Just double-click the KNMM_Mk14_Add.cmd and go bouncing!
When you decide to get rid of the Mk14 IFLOLS, double-click the KNMM_Mk14_Remove.cmd...

  2. Huge fan of all of your work. I have one problem though, I can't seem to get any of your IFLOLS trailers to work. I pretty much have a clean install of FSX:SE. The new VLSO works just fine but I can't ever see the ball or the datums from the virtual cockpit. I can only see the lights if I'm using an external view of any aircraft... weird

  3. Yes it's weird... The IFLOLS works well on my FSX:SE, so I have no idea what could be wrong with it. Besides, vLSO has no influence on the IFLOLS whatsoever, because the IFLOLS is a compiled BGL and it's purely up to FSX how to draw this object and its attached lights.

  4. Fixed it! I turned off all of my addon scenery except NMM and NJW and it works now. I fly real T45s here and I'm just starting to fly the FCLP pattern so this is an awesome little chair flying aid. Graphically way better than our real sims - we still have have FLOLS lenses in the sims and you can barely see them. Thanks for all of your hard work!

  5. Oh really? Real pilots use this program and FCLP sceneries to practice? Awesome! And thank you! ))

  6. How close does this virtual LSO model the real LSO, by the way?

  7. I'm pretty far out from doing real FCLPs so I've never flown with an LSO yet. Honestly, you probably know a lot more than I do about this stuff haha However, my instructors pretend to be LSOs sometimes and it seems pretty close! Since I'm still really new to flying the FCLP pattern I have a much bigger margin for error in real life than I do on vLSO. Also side note, I think the real IFLOLS are normally tuned to a 3.5 degree glideslope instead of 3.75. I trend low on vLSO haha
