In cooperation with SFD (MisterX) we created a free library of Static Aircrafts to enhance all airports and give them a more realistic look. All aircrafts are compatible with SAM jetways, which will be connected automatically if they are in range.
We will update the libraries with new liveries in the future but you are all invited to contribute your own liveries too.
Please use our help desk for installation instructions and support.
Custom static aircrafts More than 25 different aircraft types More than 90 different airlines Aircrafts compatible with SAM jetways
In addition to the latest Scenery Animation Manager and the additional SAM Seasons Library we created a stand alone tree replacement pack which can be used in combination with SAM Seasons or stand alone. SAM GlobalTrees can be controlled through the SAM plugin menu just like SAM Seasons and offers our latest vegetation works in a global scale.
The SAM GlobalTrees package is a further development of the FlyAgi Vegetation Global Trees addon already used by a wide range of flight simmers which is included in the SAM Seasons Library package. Of course, the SAM Seasons Library will be updated with the latest vegetation from time to time but if you use SAM GlobalTrees you can update the SAM Seasons vegetation without the need to redownload the whole seasons package again and again. Further, if you don't need seasons, you can use SAM GlobalTrees without installing the Seasons Library just to get our latest vegation assets.
Replaces global forests and trees with high resolution ones including those placed by the urban autogen areas (every single tree gets updated) Can be used without the SAM Seasons library installed Forest density can be reduced if performance issues arise (configuration is described in the manual) Replaces SFD Global forests if you wish so (needs configuration as described in the manual) Supports SAM Seasons Supports SAM Colors (some colors need configuration to be available as described in the manual) Updates SAM Seasons vegetation without redownloading the seasons library Comes with a python based configuration tool but also allows manual copy and paste based configuration SAM Seasons SDK can be incorporated by scenery designers to match SAM GlobalTrees color appearance (supporting all SAM GlobalTrees color and season styles)

DYNAMIC ENVIRONMENT PLUGIN
SAM is a native XP11 plugin offering different possibilities to scenery authors focused on animations. It is currently seperated into two main parts:
You can create custom datarefs without any knowledge and control the values through a settings menu. With user checkboxes you can even let the user control animations such as opening hangars, switching lights and anything else a scenery developer might think of.
We made a deep dive into the world of math to create realistic jetway animations basically because the current software available is not sufficient. Now you can add jetways within seconds to a scenery.
The plugin is highly optimized for performance. The most obvious part is the fact that calculations for datarefs only start when an object is loaded and in visible range. It can be used in hundreds of sceneries without any noticeable fps impact. The plugin is installed into the main plugin directory, thus it's a global plugin and not per scenery. The sceneries only contain an xml file with the settings.
A library with pre-animated objects like Jetways, VDGS, Marshaller, Hangars, Wind Turbines etc. is the starting point for developers to experiment with. You can either use these objects or create and animate your own.
The plugin is licensed under CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 which means it is free to use for all users and for all freeware sceneries. If you are a payware developer you can get a license for your project here.
