As I mentioned in the mchat yesterday, I'm working on a series of 200-odd test points to gage the effect airspeed and altitude have on throttle in straight and level flight (autopilot #2). The goal is to predict the maximum range or best speed/ altitude to fly at to reach a destination the fastest and turn it into a useful tool for long-range civilian flights.
Now on to my request.
I am wondering if there is any documentation as to what the various parameters in the .YFS file are. If the throttle position is included in these, I would love to know, as I am introducing some error with my current method of getting the throttle percent. (Take a screenshot and measure the ration of pixels covered/uncovered by the throttle indicator)
I know that the following parameters:
Code: Select all
Time x-position / altitude / z-position / ... the rest are unknown to me this line is unknown to me 0 to finish off the entry
Then there are other parts of the code at the end that I have no clue about. but it looks like a bunch of srf files with vertex and face definitions.
Does anyone have a better idea as to what these are? I assume that there are some regarding flaps gear, and other animations, but I am unsure. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
I thought I would ask the community before doing too many test points and then find out there is a better way.
