Hmm, yeah, more trees, probably new textures for ysflight, sorry, but they look a bit outnumbered :|,
and how is it with torpedoes for ships and underwater-boats?

I think you kids are too general with the requests. I want simple things that add power into our hands, reallly.

I would like a fix to the absolute rudder problem (ie: no matter the aircraft atitude, rudder always moves aircraft heading to the absolute right... makes some odd glitches.)

I would Like CLAs for Bank, Pitch, Roll and Throttle.

I would like support for colors in YSFlight Texts: simple example %0Blah becomes Blah instead of Blah

Support for BBCode style font would be better.
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!

Not sure if that's as universal as you think. I am under the impression that Russia uses meters / kmh, at least within Russian air space.

Fair enough, just went looking at images of Su-27 cockpits and their altimeters are in metres / km.

I'm not sure that this shouldn't go in the Add-On Requests, but we'll find out.

...Rather than make a new weapon like a smoke pod, would it be possible to modify the characteristics of a missile so that it didn't leave the pylon, but still created the smoke as it is fired? I think that would be the closest anyone could ever come to making a pod.
This sounds to me almost exactly like a JATO, would that be able to be done...

My wishes are in the YS FLIGHT SIMULATOR thread by accident. :| You can see them there.

No wait I'll bring them here.

iqmal_97 wrote:My vision of air to air refueling.

Player #1 flies in a straight line.
Player #2, which is in dire need of fuel, goes near Player #1.
Once in position and close enough, Player #2 will press the refuel/resupply button.
The, Player #2 will see his Fuel bar gradually increase.
It will keep increasing as long as Player #2 is in range and his/her fuel bar or his additional fuel tanks become full.
Once Player #2 is satisfied, he may break up formation.
If he suddenly breaks formation during his refueling process, he must reposition himself and press the refuel/resupply button again.
There should be a wingman "refuel from tanker" command which allows your AI wingman to this automatically, if the map has a tanker flying around. If not, he will simply land and try to find the nearest refuel/resupply truck.
Another similar addition would be an autopilot command which automatically align and refuel your plane and breaks formation when full

IMO, I think this will make refuelling in the air a lot more simpler on Multiplayer.
NICE, although I think Player #2 should HOLD DOWN refuel/supply button while refuelling. I guess I can scratch the nozzle srf/dnm stuff. While P2 is holding down the refuel button, he is locked in position and can't manuver even if he tries to. Once he lets go of the button, he is free to move around and manuver as he pleases.

There should be a TANKER category in the .dat of an aircraft. This allows mod-makers to turn their useless KC-10s into useful tankers. Tankers would have variable fuel amount that could be changed in .dat as well (in fuel tank "weapon" units). Once P2's main tank is full, it can start refuelling his external tanks. This means that, for example, a KC-10 can spawn with, say, a C-5 on a cargo mission across Pacific, but doesn't have enough fuel to make it. He can spawn the KC-10 at a chosen point, then with wingman commands he can tell the KC-10 to come into formation with him, then the C-5 pilot can hit the refuel button.

On the note of external tanks, there should also be buddy tanking for planes with tanks (e.g. stock F-18E). This would be the same situation as the first one.

Flake wrote:If he took out the "full stop" requirement, then we could make our own refuelling points.

If he also supported that line in the aircraft dats, would that not solve the problem? just add the check for aircraft id codes as well when refueling. ;)
This would be absolutely epic. You could have a configurable option that says "AIRFUEL TRUE/FALSE" and turn your boring useless KC-10 into a true tanker. You could use the autopilot "Straight & Level" control to stay steady while your friend approaches, then "lower the nozzle(thrust vector keys)" which will extend a hose (if the plane has that model) to refuel other aircraft. (The tankers can refuel others without the hose extended, but it would be rather awkward) Air refuellable aircraft (i.e. those which can intake fuel from a tanker) will have FUELREC TRUE, all others will have FUELREC FALSE or nothing at all. With FUELREC TRUE aircraft, you can have it so that, if the GEAR IS UP, then you can refuel in midair with a) autopilot, b) REALLY expert piloting, or c) hybrid, which means that the autopilot would take you to the exact right spot for air-refuelling, then you HOLD DOWN the ground refuel button while controlling your aircraft (since you're now out of autopilot, hence the word "hybrid") until your fuel gauge reaches the level you want. Then you slow down, then pull off. This would require mod makers to have their FUELREC TRUE aircraft get a little intake nozzle just above the cockpit that can be opened with Bomb bay door key or something else that opens a little door with a black spot below it.
Image

The little black dot just above the C-5's cockpit is the intake nozzle.

EDIT: Screw the nozzle thing, it's too complicated and too much of a hassle. Just pull up within 10 m of your tanker and hold the refuel button.
Philster wrote:Do you think he will implement controllable carriers? Then we could actually land on each other without the aid of server scripts.
That would be cool if he added a program the allows a surface that can be determined on a airborne aircraft carrier (e.g. Aigaion), that allowed landing on those surfaces. He could have an application that allows us to program a landable surface into our aircraft so we can have a Ace Combat 6 simulation ;)

and I wrote:Alternatively, there could [also] be a cheat for A-A Refuel in the Autopilot
choices. Select it and you fly straight & level while the Tanker manuevers
into the correct position for your aircraft. The choice would only be possible
if one is in range of a tanker though (kind of like an aircraft carrier's ILS
only farther) That would create the possibility for a new piece of equipment,
a Refueler beacon, detectable only by others of the same IFF#.
