Updated wishlist based on what I can't do with OYS.
-More exact server time - use an unsigned short (0-65536) specifying the current second of the day the server is set to and round across the spectrum (because there are 86400 seconds in a day).
-Gradient the lighting between these times - full Day at 43200. Full Night at 0.
-Have a dawn/dusk color in the FLD definition. There is already a GND and SKY color. Make a TWI color (Twilight). If you are feeling generous, DWN,DAY,DSK,NTE and gradient between these values according to the server time... 0-20% = Night 20%-30% dawn, 30%-70% day, 70-80% dusk, 80%-100% Night.
-Gradient the sky so that 0ft is full sky color and 120,000ft is black.
-Fog at 20,000m or farther out is sky color. Fog at 0m is white. Gradient in between. This is definitely possible. https://www.opengl.org/sdk/docs/man2/xhtml/glFog.xml
-Already using bloom effects with GL 2.0. Advance this with a sun object and blinding effect.
-G effects. Greyout 4g-7g. Blackout 7g-10g. options to configure which ranges these come into effect.
-Smoke follows wind direction. All smoke should follow wind direction.
-Smoke has velocity. Smoke anchor points should have an initial velocity of say 20m/s with a negative acceleration of 4m/s/s.
-Smoke uses particle system, like clouds or "fire".
-specify per aircraft sounds.
-aircraft turn left and right based on bank angle when on the ground.
-aircraft turning faster then their wheelbase can handle will tip outwards of the turn.
-RUDDER ACTS RELATIVE TO THE AIRCRAFT ANGLE, NOT THE WORLD.
-Loosen netcode to allow sending of new entity joined packet to an already joined user - allowing to send for example "parachuter" aircraft object to a player already in an aircraft, or one that has not yet sent a join request.
-Fix buffer overflow error in map name being sent - lots of garbage on the end of the map name!
-Allow change of sky color etc. with packet 43 misc cmd
I am an accountant working full-time (and some). I'm not here as often as I would like to be. Send a message if you need me. There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!
