Re: [PROGRAM] OpenYS - Open Source YSFlight Server!

Not sure what is causing this... I've got a KC-130 from the GAC pack, and a spitfire sitting on the runway, next to each other. I set the KC-130 as a refueler, and I get this error bug.png Appears on both the spitfire's screen and the KC-130's screen (Though it'll pop up 10x on one, then 2 on the ot...

Re: .DAT Variables

There is a factor in the .DAt file that is called "Weigload"..Weight of the load.

Would this change the weight of the weapons, depending on what you've set here?

Re: Random questions about anything NEAR and IN the realm of YSFlight

No, there are 2 types of GIS file, Raster and Vector. Our modding in YS is vector based, points, lines and polygons. Rasters are bitmap images, so a continuous grid of data, as opposed to discreet points of data. Shapefile (.shp) are vector files, most similar to a .fld (flat, vector), except you ca...

Re: Random questions about anything NEAR and IN the realm of YSFlight

I know what you're talking about :) Geotiffs are just .tif files, so a regular bitmap image. They also have some extra attributes that tell GIS software where that image is located, but essentially they're normal bitmaps. You can edit them in Photoshop or even paint. Only difference really is that t...

Re: Random questions about anything NEAR and IN the realm of YSFlight

Yup, they're just bitmap images, but the pixel value is the elevation. So they're greyscale, and instead of it just being 0-255, it goes..well, whatever elevation you want

Yea, the elevation is stored as the pixel value.

I believe so. I'm getting some interesting errors when I try and launch it.... 20160828(175946): MESSAGE: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. 20160828(175946): START TRACE: 20160828(175946): METHOD: Ground FindByName(System.String) 20160828(175946): LINENUMBER: 273 20160828(175946)...

Re: Random questions about anything NEAR and IN the realm of YSFlight

The Shapefile I believe, it was a outline just like you showed. Yea, doing the convex...whatever thing seems to solve it. I think it's because there is invalid geometry (one of the lines bisects another, or more than one perhaps). The convexy thing triangulates all the polygons, so you can identify...

Re: Random questions about anything NEAR and IN the realm of YSFlight

I remember AAAAAGES Ago, when I tried my hand at making a Japan Map (Think 2012, 2011), I had this same problem. I never found a solution. The shapefile or the elevation grid? RE Shapefile: ConvexyWhateverItsCalled/Triangulation worked quite well, just took a while. RE Elevation Grid I guess the on...

Heading, yes. The new version has the "heading bug" - so you can set a heading using the compass...
