Okay, guys. The server IP will not be listed until it is time to start. VNAF has announced multiple times that he will get all of the information down when he gets it down. No official date is made on it being released. Chill everyone :|

The Official AirFest Pack has been uploaded! This pack includes all aircraft, ground objects, and sceneries necessary for AirFest! It is meant to be a single download option for the show. The server will be running the pack for the duration of the event, so you will need to download it to see the show!

If there are any issues with the pack, please let me know ASAP!

Download Update Here!

ATTENTION
Due to the massive technical issues with the AirFest server and pack, we will be cancelling the rest of rehearsal day. The goal was to use OpenYS to make it easier for flying, replays, and version conflicts. We hit some very disrupting problems running OpenYS as well as the current AirFest pack. Though the pack does not have issues on its own, it does when being used with OpenYS. We are working extremely hard to resolve all issues and get a working server and pack ready for the show. Please understand, the issues are highly frustrating and this cancellation is practically unavoidable at this point.

We ask that ALL performers submit ONE Private Message that includes the following no later than Tuesday, July 5.
- The name of your display/s
- A replay attached to the PM of your display flown in YS on the correct map (Vuelo_AirShow).
- A list of maneuvers in correct order for the display. Please make sure these correspond with your replay (or video). For example: "Flat pass from the right", "Loop from the left", etc.
- any other pertinent comments you think are important for me to know. Please be specific and detailed.

Remember, just ONE PM please. If you are sending PM's for multiple displays, ONE per display please.

I would like to personally apologize for the inconvenience today. I know a lot of you were waiting and taking time out of your day to attend and had to wait for me to no avail. If I could've discovered and avoided these issues before, I would have, but this is the reality of YS Flight and life. We run into issues that we can't really get around and they sometimes have serious consequences, even if it's beyond your control.

I will be online for most of the rest of the day and some of tomorrow. Please review all available information before posting or asking questions. The AirFest pack will be updated momentarily for hopefully the last time.

Thanks for your understanding,
VNAF ONE

Due to unforseen DAT file incompatibilities of the XF-1 Pogo, and severe shortage of Communism-distributing aircraft, it will be substituted with a Tu-95 "Bear" flyby. Apologies for any inconveniences this may cause. Download the aircraft HERE.

A few things:

The pack had some issues and there were even more discovered after some testing with the server yesterday. Please take a look at the schedule downloads column. You MUST download any links posted individually (i.e. the Blue Angels, Thunberbirds, etc.) in addition to the full AirFest pack.

The airpower demos will go like this (since we didn't get to practice yesterday):

WWII demo:
- The fighters will fly a "racetrack" or circle out in front of the crowd and make multiple passes pretending to escort the bombers (no formation needed, may fly solo). They may be mock strafing runs (NO GUNS) or just flat passes.
- The bombers will do the same, but will be behind the crowd half the time. Come from behind and to the right to make a bombing run (NO BOMBS), and then turn back behind the crowd.

East and NATO Airpower Demos:
- All aircraft can perform solo passes in a "racetrack" pattern in front of the crowd. Formations are not necessary. The passes may consist of different maneuvers but please don't turn it into a solo demo. Once you have performed something, please allow the others to make their passes before you return again and stay in the pattern.

Future of Airpower:
- Same as the above. The "Western" aircraft may join in formation (F-22 and F-35) and make a few passes near the end and the "Eastern" aircraft (ATF, T-50, J-20) may do the same. Flares are allowed on the formation break.

Listen to the narration with all of these to get a better understanding. These will be "winged" demos but have proven to be quite nice in the past. Don't screw it up for everyone ;)

Since the F-35B was giving Too Much Freedomâ„¢ to the skies of YSFlight, and overloading the Open YS servers with Pure Awesome Freedomâ„¢, I have decided to dampen the enthusiasm of this aircraft with a modified dat file.

Please note that this is only for the airshow and is a Work In Progress/ Beta release. This release is not included in the airshow pack due to timing with the OYS troubleshooting (thanks Patrick! :D ). As such, it is being released with the following permissions:
  • No editing of the dat or DNM file.
  • No Modding or creating derivative works from this aircraft or weapon skins included.
NOTE: When I release the F-35 pack, this will be overwritten with the final version of the F-35B VMFAT-501 aircraft. The final release of the F-35 pack will include blank models for repainting.

The show will be pretty much the opposite of the times you are looking for.
Will the ATC Fly-in be possible until the 8th?

i think he may be asking for a week long "fly-in" with ATC.

Well, no.

You can fly in whenever you want on your own but the ATC event was cancelled anyway.

I found the problem. There is no collision file in your pack...

There are a lot of errors on other aircraft installed so I'm working to fix those too...they weren't visible until trying to fly them on the server.

Everyone, I wanted to give you all a big heads up. Please keep an install of YS Flight 2015 ready to go. We are trying to use OpenYS for the show, but it is very buggy and we may not be able to fully support the show with it. One of the main reasons we are trying so hard to get it working is to have smoke with some of the replays. If everyone has an install of 2015 for the show, we can easily use whichever is necessary for that portion of the show. Make sure you have the AirFest pack and any download links on the schedule installed on your 2015 client to avoid issues. Also keep an eye on this topic for any future updates.

As you can see, the rehearsal day brings a lot of issues in the open long before the show so they can be addressed. Without being able to use this day, many issues will come up later in the week and on the days of the show. We appreciate everyone's patience as we try to resolve as many issues as possible.

Thanks for your cooperation.

-----ATTENTION-----


To all of those who have questions about the YS Racing Extra 300 Series at VNAF AirFest, practice will be on Thursday and the finals will be on Friday. I apologize for not announcing this before hand and I have a feeling this will interfere with some of your schedules. So I have made a video for both of those who can and cannot join the server on Thursday. Server on 2015 version will be open for 7-9 hours allowing a big amount of practice runs through the course.

So you mean... There'll be with Distance Lag?

Distance lag had always been an integral part of YS; OpenYS is not able to resolve it entirely.

(Or at least, that's what I've heard about it being worse for formation flights than the stock console. I'm not too sure about the more recent builds though.)
