Hi there. An ambitious project, i must say! Is it still going?

Just a few things for page 45-46 about TURRET commands... here are some you didn't include:
TURRETPW gunpower for the turret
TURRETNP name of DNM node for pitch animation
TURRETNH name of DNM node for heading animation
TURRETWP name of weapon type eg. RKT AGM65 AIM9X etc.

Update: These are for GROUND OBJECTS ONLY.

Keep the manual coming. If you can write a good manual for the last good, stable version, it'll be a great thing.

I'm working on next handbook revision now, but has plans soon fully rewrite it using Markdown, that will give me possibillity later host it as repositary on Github (currently in handbook development I use LibreOffice, but its bad way for community documentation development process).

WOW! Latest edition of "YSFlight Handbook" downloaded more than one thousend times now!

Previously, for write this book I use LibreOffice office suite, but now I'm working on rewriting source of it using Markdown markup (possibly Wiki too).

Firstly, I thought to use LaTeX, but it's too heavy and not so simple, so Markdown was choosed.

So, it would be usefull for collaboratve work on book writing without dependency to office suite. More details coming soon.
