Re: Kiwi's Cartographers and Modellors LTD

I think that NZ's size could be handled OK by YSF and the scenery editor, but it's the geography and general mountainous structure that presents the issue, as detailed elevation grids really slow down the scenery editor. It could be done with a low-quality elevation grid, but I want it to be really ...

Re: Kiwi's Cartographers and Modellors LTD

A little side-project I've started working on when the fictional combat map gets too monotonous - this shouldn't be too hard to guess.

Re: Elevation Grid Generator

Nailed it on the head. The opacity/transparency has absolutely nothing to do with the brightness. The height is based of the LUMINANCE value of the pixel, Colors are irrelevant. Colors can be defined by Red, Green, Blue, or Hue, Saturation, Luminence. Full white is 255 luminence, regardless of hue a...

Re: Elevation Grid Generator

Just did some testing and determined that the equation for grid face height is always : pixel brightness (0-255) * height amplification = final grid height The maximum pixel value doesn't have to be 255 and the scaling is only determined by the brightness of an individual pixel, not the maximum valu...

Re: I have a question about installing addons

Hey, welcome to the forums! I hope you have a good time here at YSFHQ. :)

Your root folder for YS (in Win 10) should be C:/Program Files/YSFLIGHT.COM/YSFLIGHT, assuming an install to the default location.
Also, you can find Turbofan's CMI Extended here.

Re: New to flight simulators.

Hey, welcome to YSFHQ! Hope you have a good time here. To get outside views in YSFlight, you can use the function buttons ( F2, F3 etc.) I believe they go something like this: F1 - Cockpit View F2 - various outside views F3 - view of your plane from another aircraft F4 - Weapon view F5 - no idea F6/...

Re: Elevation Grid Generator

And if someone can please explain in some detail how to properly use the height amplification. The height amplification is a multiple of the pixel value, e.g. black (0,0,0) or white (255,255,255). So if the height amp. was set to 20, say, then the height of a white pixel (in metres, of course 8-) )...

Re: [FILM] YSF: Your Single Flight

Or maybe an action film like Top Gun, filmed with Kurosaki's YS camera or something. Get someone to make an addon for people walking around in the sim, but have most of the scenes in the air. And as Scarecrow said: No one does anything for YSFlight anymore (besides create addons) It seems that a fai...
