Default Wind Turbine replacement

This mod overrides default Microsoft Flight Simulator wind turbine  (windmill)

 

 

Default MSFS Wind turbines (aka wind generator, windmill) are HUGE

 

With this mod I have made them a litlle bit smaller (75 meter vs 90 meter)

I have also added some more details on the top nacelle, and flashing lights for better collision avoidance

 

new features:

the turbine now turns into the wind (udwind style wind turbine). The turning is smooth, takes 20/30 seconds for a 360 degree turn

the blades are not syncronized anymore (each turbine has a random starting point)

 

If you want to see them, go where wind turbines are, like Palm Springs :)

 

There shouln't be any FPS loss, modelling is pretty simple with lods

 

Hope you enjoy!

 

KNOWN ISSUE:

- over each default windturbines there is a floating Asobo style orb light, since my turbines are smaller than the default ones , the orb will float 15 meters above the windturbines

- when wind changes, because of gust, the animation will restart, but because of the "random" start, the blade will skip some frames, if you like the mod but can't stand the jump, 

in the .xml inside the model folder remove each typeParam="Random" property

just came to say this is semi-broken in SU11 with stuttering, essentially rendering unusable for now. good luck on fixing!

I love this mod.

I wonder if you were able to ignore wind speed changes that are less than a certain amount it would reduce the number of times the blade animation restarts and therefore appear a bit smoother?

Since SU 10 I have only stuttering with the mindmills, is this only your mod or an default asobo problem? It looks so good before .... 😭

Great add-on. But recently I bought the new XP12 to upgrade 11 and notice a rather large difference in the smoothness of the animated rotating blades in each sim. Is there anything that can be done to increase the smoothness of the blade rotation in MSFS because at present the difference across the sims is considerable?

Dear mamu82,

thank you so much for this wonderful modification! I waited for something like this for a very long time. Perfect. However, I also see some frames missing during rotation which makes the blades jump sometimes, as well as big red light orbs floating above most of the turbines at night. Maybe both topics can be fixed? That would be a dream! I am on SU9, so no SU10 Beta.

either SU10beta or even SU9 allready broke the mod, mind turbines turning clock- and countercklockwiese in a eratic and very sudden way?

GREAT ADDON! I just have one observation:

The light's blink are in sync (and they look huge), it looks particularly unrealistic over a vast field of windmills. Is there a way to XML this?

Would it be possible to keep the stock turbines and only have the feature that they turn in the Wind

I've installed but not had chance to try it yet, but the huge wind turbines have irritated me from the start. Looking forward to checking your mod out on my next flight. I also use Puffinflights we love VFR mod BTW and it makes a huge difference for me.

Great idea, thanks.

Hi Mamu82, I was really going to enjoy this mod, since I regularly fly in an area that has hundreds of wind turbines. I just took a flight in this area and I am seeing complete duplicate turbines, some of which look like they have 6 blades. They are all the same height. Can you help with this anomaly? thanks.

in the .xml inside the model folder remove each typeParam="Random" property  

Can you elaborate on this? Is this needed , where is the location of the file?

Is this compatible with the We Love VFR mod? Otherwise this looks fantastic!

What a great idea - something I wouldn't have even thought about. Many thanks!
