Thanks, Varren and Eric. I've confirmed that YS works. It's just the self extractor/installer that doesn't work on my computer.

Yeah. It's messed up now. :(

On the buggy side of things, what's this?

Soji got back to me, here's the reply I got -
"Hi Calum, Thank you for the error report! Looks like it is another Microsoft's crap (they just did away with whole point of DLL). Probably installing Visual C++ 2012 redistributable, which is available from Microsoft.com would remove the error. But, another workaround is not using the installer. You can rename setup.exe to something.7z and use 7Zip to extract all the files."

So if you could install Visual C++ 2012 Redistributable if you don't already have it and get back to me on whether or not that works that'd be great :)

we might finally get a day night cycle...

I never noticed that before, but when I looked at the properties I saw that it is a 7zip file, so I didn't have to rename it. I have 7zip installed as my main compressed files program. I used the right-click context menu to extract it and it worked fine. The captain knows what he's doing. :)

OpenGL2 looks great from what I've seen so far. I'll try flying in a little while.

As for day/night cycle, I've already experimented with using OYS and the sky/fog color changes, but I ran into a problem with OYS.

The opengl2 version crashes on me every time.

OpenGL2 had some changes because it looks a lot better than the old version. Maybe you could try updating your graphics driver if you haven't already.

The opengl version has black clouds on my machine.

Also has anyone checked this out? Soji implemented piston engine and prop variables for prop planes
Also that tire coefficient.

I just checked it out. The Piper now has a RPM indicator in place of a throttle indicator, which is interesting. While there are controls to increase or decrease the RPM, it appears that they don't work. There are also no controls as yet to control propeller pitch.

The friction coefficient thing is to simulate ground friction, an improvement over the next to 0 friction on older versions. The aircraft stopped after a few seconds when I was travelling at 2kts and 0 engine power. That means that soon enough, one would no longer be able to coast from one end of a runway to the other with 0 engine power :lol: .

I wonder if its possible to possible to pitch the blades to such an extreme that there could be some type of reverse thrust.

I can already see a modded pitts hovering nose first a few feet off the ground

Actually Bro, if you set a thrust reverse just right, you can do that. I've done that with my Extra 300S Sharp Ninja. Fun times.

Answer from Soji about adding new features. What do you think about it?
Soji Yamakawa wrote:Many of the items in the list are in common with what I would love to implement. I'll try to implement as many as possible.

I am now making an overhaul of the DNM data structure in YSFLIGHT. I used to be using two different data structures for the editor and visualization. The SRF data structure has been used for my university projects, too, but it was of a different data structure (in fact three different structures). What was bad about this was when I made changes to .SRF data format, I had to go in to five different locations in my code and made modifications, which was preventing me from adding new features.

But, I am trying to unify the data structure to the same structure as Polygon Crest uses (open source). So, hopefully it will go well and make it easier for me to address many feature requests.

What list is he referring to? The extensive email listing all the reasons to implement nukes?

Wasn't there someone who cherry picked the best requests from the wishlist thread and sent them to Soji? Or does he view the thread from time to time?

I hope his DNM changes won't brick our current pool of hundreds of thousands of addons. Not saying it will ( I'm no programmer ) but it does concern me. More features (more animations?) sounds amazing though.

I think the bigger problem would be the scripts and software developed for the dnm files. I'm mostly talking about the blender dnm scripts, but dnmviewer is also important too!

I suggested before that someone who keeps an open line with soji to handle bug and feature requests.

I think he means by how ysflight reads srfs and dnms

I sent list that we commonly wants to enjoy. That is his answer

I think he will keep current massive things as DEFAULT features. Prof. Soji is specialist. He will do right

Soji should be keeping the external data structure the same - he's merging his code classes together to extend YSFlight faster! ;)
