Re: Violet's Sketchbook

Yes! Unsure how easy it is to see at long range in OGL2 because of the light sprite fade, but because it uses the tracker mechanic and not a quirk of rendering order, it's solid in all versions. The downside is it tracks the glideslope of the nearest aircraft, so won't work if someone's on the deck....

Re: ILS Not Operative?

You have to be in range of an ILS (about 20mi) for it to show on the Nav menu. They will be in the Nav1 and Nav2 menu. Not all airports have an ILS
Some maps don't label their ILSes, so it's a bit of a lottery about which runway you get

Re: Current Projects

I'd set turret to be the whole arm rotation, up/down for one joint and left/right for the second joint, and put the spray direction on aileron/elevator because they're more twitchy. Thrust vector for boom zoom is a good choice

Re: How do i make replays

Link the replay .yfs in the .lst that loads the map. If there's an aircraft in the replay it throws an error offline but works fine online, though smoke, flares, and guns don't transfer In the scenery folder there will be a bunch of .lst files starting with "sce". Those are plain text files that YS ...

Re: Everything you ever wanted to know about .ter files but were afraid to ask

The shadow falls on any landable surface. That's ground, elevation grids* and carrier decks. That's hardcoded and we can't change it *if you raise an elevation grid so no point of its base intersects the ground, it stops having collision, and is therefore not landable and the shadow doesn't snap to ...

Re: YSFlight Wishlist

If you set the TrackIR output as look left/right and look up/down axes, you can bind those to view X and view Y axes in YS. There's no way to use the head position though

You can view the flight you just did with Simulation > Replay Flight Record. You can fly in that replay with Simulation > Select Aircraft. You can save to a file with File > Save Flight.
To keep replays of server flights, turn on Record Flight in Network > Network Option > Client
