Re: [PACK] Star wars pack 1.5 beta

Hi there, I am unable to download from MediaFire because they blocked downloads to people using an ad blocker. I refuse to turn off my ad blocker on principle. I would have suggested using YSUpload, but clearly I've been away for a while as that's now gone. I will try to find out what happened to ys...

Re: My thoughts on YSFlight.

Thank you for your thoughts. They're not very useful though. Just makes the situation seem... well as you said, grim. If we assume that there will always be people who enjoy using a flight simulator (either the military or the civilian kind), the problem can't be a lack of people. A more useful disc...

Re: Why are the servers so empty?

I have observed this phenomenon in multiplayer servers, chat rooms, any real-time online space. People have some sort of major problem being the first to arrive, especially in chat rooms. They value human presence, and when nobody else is there it is not a valuable place to visit. This is really odd...

Re: Ground Object Error

Further to what decaff_42 said, please share any error messages you get while starting YSFlight, or while loading the scenery you created. That will help us solve the problem.

My favorite genre of music is Trance. I know most people aren't interested in this genre, but maybe there's one or two here who will appreciate it:

Re: [Linux] Bad memory problem when idle

I would also like to point out that if you remain logged into my server for hours without activity, it starts to drain my resources. Are you running a Linux version of the server? Does the "Free memory when possible" option help? I haven't seen any problems with my Showcase server, but maybe I'll d...

[Linux] Bad memory problem when idle

This is a warning to Linux users. I planned to make a posting with a full list of issues with the Linux version, but I'm going ahead with this particular problem now as it is bad, by that I mean you can lose unsaved work. I have observed that only when sitting idle at the main menu, YSFlight 2015042...

Re: Worst airplane

From the perspective of an airline passenger, I would say the Comet , due to the defects related to metal fatigue discovered after it was first produced. It was the last (only?) jet airliner to feature square windows. Side note: I thought this was going to be about YSFlight airplanes. In which case ...

[Request] Sci-Fi craft from "ShadowWraith"

Hi, I was reminded of these craft by a rather peculiar (fictional?) aircraft being designed by "Darkness-Of-Enigma" and displayed on Discord, (the R-101N as they called it). This is a bit nostalgic for me. The top-down games "ShadowWraith" (1995) and "Souls in the System" (1996) were one of my favor...

Do you mean to say that the Linux version of YSflight has a different compatibility with .dnm files as its Windows or Mac OS counterparts?

If that says "PMNE", that would be the problem. It should be "PMNV". I'll check it tonight.
The PMNE spelling occurs in a lot of the files I examined, I don't think that is a source of errors. If it isn't the desired spelling, at least it is consistent in the places I've seen it.

if you are using the later versions of linux ysflight such as those after 2015, you're out of luck. if I remember correctly, those builds refuse to load dnms that have their constituent srfs outside of the dnm file ie. exploded dnms which happens to be pat's style of making ground objects. this als...

[Linux]Error with PMNV North Caribbean ground obj.

Hi, I'm using the Linux version of YSFlight. After adding the PMNV North Caribbean map, I can launch the game, but when I join a server hosting the map, such as YSCAS, I get an error about /user/neocon/ground/treeforest.dnm. I have dug into all the files related to this particular object, and while ...

[Video] Huh? Stock B-52 wings appear to sag initially

Hi, I'm pretty sure that airframes don't flex in YSFlight. Yet, I just joined a server and saw the wings of my stock B-52 appear to sag in the first few seconds after joining. This is repeatable. So, umm, what? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXBJFsKnYxE Is this new, or something? I'm running YSFlig...
