No no, don’t worry. It’s not Uncle Sam that has been updated, but Marten his Scenery Animation Manager that has been updated to version 2.0.1. Note that the current version 2.0.1 is only for Windows and Linux systems. Marten is working on an updated version for macOS. Keep on monitoring our new post for the update for macOS.
In addition to the latest Scenery Animation Manager we created a free seasonal texture library which can be controlled through the SAM plugin menu. There also is a free SDK available in case you would like to adapt your scenery to these. The download link for this SAM extension is included at the end of this news post.
We’re more than pleased to inform you that with the approval of Marten or also known as X-Plane.Org user marten@stairport, we are able to host and promote his X-Plane 11 plugin. Oh no, not just a plugin, no, a great plugin.
According to Marten; SAM (Scenery Animation Manager) is a native X-Plane 11 plugin offering different possibilities to scenery authors focused on animations. 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.
Updated version 2.0.2 (January 21st 2020) comes with the following fixes and/or additions or improvements:
- Hotfix for linux CTD [23.12.19]
- Added macOS version
- Fixed linux for older glibc versions
- Added WorldJetways extension to Steam
- Added SSG 748 v2 configuration
- Added option to disable automatic library addition
- Fixed missing animation entries on control page
- Added linux version
