Random questions about anything NEAR and IN the realm of YSFlight

Post by AdityaB » Sat May 14, 2016 2:59 am

FAQ on YSFShow
1) when inserting text in the scenery editor, I can see an tickbox for 'vertical' text; what does this do?
2) How do i import two sceneries?
3) CIVAV online chat client (Channel is #OpenYS)
4) .DAT variables
5) CLA tables
6) OfficerFlake's: Guide for starting off on modding
7) Tutorials
8.1) DD-Destroyer: How to make ground objects.
8.2) AdityaB: How to make ground objects.
9) What is "Fly heading Bug"?

Hello all,

I thought it's best to start a topics like this, so that questions that might not have filled before or to make searches easier for glitch readdressal, and so that small and basic questions/tit-bits which have answers like yes or no and single liners are not lost in the YS Mini Chat :)
I hope its ok to start this topic....
Administrators have full control and can make this topic hosted by YSFHQ Official user or/and deleting the topic (if useless) or/and sticky the topic under YS Support :)

I started this topic because of the many small and basic questions asked in Mini Chat, and many making the point of "this could be a thread"... ;)
No offence meant anywhere
This thread can have questions like:
"Is this possible?"
"how is this done?"
"how is this corrected?"
"where is this found?"
"maybe we can have this..."
etc, etc, etc

Please keep questions related near to or in YS Flight ...
like: small and tiny doubts/questions in YSF, blender, scenery editor, 3rd party programs....

The spoiler: FAQ ON YSF, will be updated with the most frequently questions for newbies, unregistered communities, users who have got to familiarize with YSF addon creation.....
For AdministratorsShow
I request the Administrators to also update the spoiler for FAQ (Thank you :) ) as Administrators have full control
So go ahead and type in your queries you have (file them) on this thread instead of Mini Chat :)

Regards :)

first of all, @Quan Vo
1) if you have the file, well and good, else get it out from somewhere with permission :)
2) import the aircraft file and the pilot file into blender, and position the pilot wherever he/she feels comfortable....
done...

secondly, @YSFHQ, the basic purpose of this topic to keep these questions alive somewhere in the forum, instated of loosing them in MiniChat... :)

also, there may be questions that are a little itchy but atleast future newbies in the field of modding and construction know where to look for it/get them in the search results....if i remember correctly, i had questioned the question as above......so if they have these kind of question, they can be redirected to this place, if it has that question answered/unanswered/which can be discovered and answered :D ;)

ok noted... But i guess my computer satisfies the requirements :) .... two problems actually... 1) scenery editor crashes when ground objects are moved around 2) sceneries blank out on adding ground objects
my personal opinion: questions like these are not supposed to be lost in mini chat, thanks
Thanks for the help :)

I've never seen any tutorials for using DNMviewer. There are a lot of things about it I still don't understand.

For example: if you delete a surf in the part tree, it only deletes it in the part tree. The .srf file is still very much present and taking up space in the .dnm file.

How did you rotate the rudder when isolated? If you rotated in object mode you must reset all location, rotation and scale data by using crtl->a->1.
Check out my website YSDecaff for all my tutorials and addon releases.
Visit by Bitbucket page for Python codes: https://bitbucket.org/decaff42/

Feel free to ask me a question! I'll try to answer it as well as I can or recommend a more knowledgeable member if necessary.

Yeah it's a tutorial but even dragon did not fully understand the program.

And the guide is a bit general. It would be nice if someone who is familiar could add to his tutorial or make a new one. Even if it's a simple screen recording on him/her using the tool and adding some commentary.

Press "L" a few times and you'll see "Heading bug" up the top left. Then, in HUD cockpit mode, press 7 and 8 to rotate the heading bug that appears on the compass (you'll work it out when you see it).

Pretty much "fly heading bug" tells the auto pilot to fly in a straight line heading xxx degrees where xxx is the setting of the heading bug.

Any part of the model under the ground will be at y axis 0m less gear height.

This means that if your models base is 0, and your gear position is -1m, your model will hover 1m above the ground.
