YSFlight Test Version 20140909 released

Post by Bombcat » Sat Sep 13, 2014 5:33 pm

Current new features:
[SCNEDIT] Support texture on maps and elevation grids.
[YSFLIGHT] Texture on maps and elevation grids. Currently you can see a huge hummingbird picture south west of Misawa base. Also some roads on the mountains in Hawaii map.
[YSFLIGHT] Bug fix: Landing practice mode did not start.
[YSFLIGHT] Bug fix: Flying inside the flight record option was corrupted. (Now you can choose "Select Airplane" to fly inside the flight record.)
[YSFLIGHT] Realistic propeller simulation. Currently available in P-51D and Piper Archer.
[YSFLIGHT] Changed the default key assignments:
, Change stick sensitivity
R Retract flaps one step
F Extend flaps one step
E (Future) Increase mixture
D (Future) Decrease mixture
W Push propeller lever forward
S Pull propeller lever backward
[YSFLIGHT] Expanded the post-stall maneuver. Currently, you can maneuver F-22 at very slow speed if you keep certain engine output.
[YSFLIGHT] Phong shading option in YSFLIGHT on OpenGL 2.0.
[YSFLIGHT] YSFLIGHT on OpenGL 2.0 uses vertex-buffer objects. It is almost as fast as YSFLIGHT on Direct 3D.

Have the offline formation record abilities been fixed? When I tried to do formations offline with myself on 2013 there was a glitch I was pissed at.

I think this answers this question,

:( It is not working for mac 10.6.8

I guess I'm out of updates, unless I can get a version to compile with an older program.

Not sure of the resolution of the mountain textures but it's not a clean cut line for me - very blury at the edges of the roads so I hope that won't be for all textures used.

Need to open Scenery Editor and have a look at that.

Prop simulation I haven't really found any change...?

Post Stall is ... weird. It's good... but...

replay flying almost fixed - doesn't load the correct field in the dialouge, so you need to select aircraft and THEN select start position.

there is an rpm instrument now on the prop planes specified... interesting?

Looking forwards to seeing what we can do with textures - if aircraft get textures too, it's a huge step up for YSF.

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!

I've no idea how you're supposed to place textures in Scenedit. The file is loaded fully into the .fld so you can't just textify it.

Similarly, you have to modify the flight save to change the second smoke colour currently:
AIRPCMND SMOKECOL 0 255 0 0
AIRPCMND SMOKECOL 1 0 255 0
AIRPCMND SMOKECOL 2 0 0 255
etc.

SO THAT IS WHAT THAT NUMBER IS FOR.

-- Sun Sep 14, 2014 1:28 pm --

Okay for texturing...

Edit->Texture->Add... Load a texture.

Then you can insert an elevation grid and choose ...

Object -> Elevation Grid -> Properties...

And set a texture for it there...

OR you can choose...

Object->Map->Inset Element->Rectangle...

And select the texture there.

You... ARE using latest Sceneedit test right?

Works fine for me.

[04:53:27] Soji Yamakawa: Hi Calum, I have received similar complaints and did a survey and found a bad news. For many reasons, I had to switch my environment to OSX 10.9, which forced me to upgrade XCode to 5.1.1. And the compler that comes with XCode 5.1.1 does not support Mac OSX 10.6 if I use features from C++11.
[04:54:45] Soji Yamakawa: I started taking advantage of C++11 features a few months ago, and YSFLIGHT code heavily relies on C++11 features. I wanted to support 10.6, but this time I am forced (by Apple) to drop 10.6 support.

I am.

How are you adding the .png?

Edit---> Texture --->Add--->Browse----> open .png----> Add?

But I'm assuming you should be able to preview the png in the program before you click add?

Varren, Thanks for asking! I guess It's getting time to update my OS...4 years of the same OS on apple is pretty ancient. ;)

I've been thinking about getting a really cheap windows computer for some time for CFD stuff, so perhaps this is another reason :)

Got a message from Soji, he says he's been able to work some magic and the mac version should now work on OSX 10.6, you just need to download it again from the site.
