And...I don't know :damn:  Freeze-dried chicken warmed up in a microwave..... must be delicious. :sick:
But the idea is not such bad, as it sounds. I mean: when you have to set oxygen and nitrogen flow to the cockpit, and
pressure and so on, and you have to bring enough fuel with you for those long interplanetary missions,(and so many things
which make Orbiter realistic) why shouldn't the astronauts be able to eat?

Mmmmmmm... Buck Rogers... (goes onto Orbiter, makes a VIP called Buck Rogers, and smashes his DGIV into Briton
Beach) A little stringy, but it'll do...

Maybe one of those fully customizible Config files would be cool too, if I knew what the hell it meant.  :wonder:
Is a fully customizible Config file... good? :stupid:


Lol, I've been doing alot more gaming online now. And the game that I play ,BF2, was programmed using Python,

I know this has been posted several times, but I think it's time to start a post where people can put what they want
for the
next version, but I think that everyone must follow a form, like enumerating or something that doesn't make
everything look
so messy. And try not to repeat. If Dan thinks this is really annoying, then I'm sorry and you can delete this post :).

I have a few suggestions:

1) Scram Engines.
2) Repairs.
3) A complex energy and power management system (Like dragonfly).
4) Maybe some random failures.
5) Custom thruster power.
6) On ejection, a mmu turbo pack on the pilot's back.
7) Something to open the cockpit safely without external pressure.
8) The window filter is useless, let's make it functional.
9) Crew resistance shoulds depends on their age.
10) Moist excess does nothing.
11) Radiator not stowed should raise some coolant's temperature.

Okay, they're more than a few...
and if i may to add somthing here , are those vent like things on the under interpreted as atmospheric vents well they
could do somthing as well like oening in atmosphere and closing when not.

An API with an interface I can downcast to that will let me see/command the state of the systems,
similar to the remote control, but with direct access rather than mouse/keyboard input and screen
for output. HUGE help to build a real crawl-into-and-flip-switches 3-D cockpit :wor:

 A re-entry and landing autopilot for those days that you just can't do it. More buttons!

 and of course, a nuclear engine to provide fuel on the really really long trips, like the ones into deep deep space

Hi everyone  - I'm knew.

Can i just congratulate DanSteph on the DIV - it's fantastic...!
I'm posting to moan for a 3D cockpit! (as others above!) please!!!!

Brilliant though, brilliant.

Are there any danger sounds in the delta glider 4 cockpit?  like when the temperature starts to get too hot or you
start to run out of O2 or CO2 starts to get too high?

But seriously. When is Dan going to start making the DGV? I'M GETTING IMPATIENT! Take your time, Dan. Keep taking your time.
And then more time.:wc:

virtual cockpit... please...

Not going to happen, Buuuuuuddy.
The clickable cockpit that Dan has designed would be too slow if it all was converted to a virtual cockpit.  Your PC
would crawl just to see the same buttons in 3D.  1 frame per second?  Won't work for me!
Dan's also got to make and sell and gather funds from his family-supporting shareware, FSPassengersX, before he
can start thinking about coding the DGV.  Maybe when the next version of Orbiter comes out Dan will see some new
options open up.

How about 2 separate DGVs. one user-friendly DGV and one advanced DGV.

It might take more time though, obviously.

Yeah, good point...

But it should have the same (or better) virtual cockpit as the DeltaGlider mk4. I'd be Ok if I had to switch to the 2-D panel
to use the cool features, but it would be really cool to at least have a 3-D environment.
:bug:

I agree!

Yes, that would be great...if you could look round the cockpit and cabin (like in the mk4)...would be great, but i know
that it would be a lot of work...much appreciated work though : )

Here's a thought,

Maybe for the virtual cockpit, the buttons don't have to be 3-d. It could be like one of those futuristic 2-D holographic
touch screens.

Yes...and funtionality can be wavered in favour of asthetics? (if need be)...

Perhaps at a later version (not particularly DG V) what about ground support? I know we have Prelude and Symphony
IV but...ground crew? Fueling? (sorry if any of this is already there - correct me! (I want to go use it!)).

Anyhoo,

Onward...

P.S. I have very limited programming knowledge but, if there is any way I can help, let me know.

I got another idea!

There could be a button or switch somewhere that turns on radio assistance. For example, you are re-entering the atmosphere,
and you don't know what to do. You hit the button/switch and a voice from the radio tells you what angle you should be at,
how fast you should go, when to turn the gears on, if you are in complete danger and have to eject, ect. But that may be too
hard to program... :wonder:

Oh yeah. That sounds suicidal now... Maybe It could just be the computer's voise telling you what to do...:baaa:

Since it has been a few days since I posted the topic, and nobody has posted in it, I guess I'll post it here:

For the DGV, the flight computer could have another mode that would read some text from the scenario file, IE:
[Missionbriefing/] A reactor mishap has killed all but 4 crew members aboard the Prelude II station. Rescue the
remaining survivors.[/END]
.

Would this be possible to implement? Anyone else think it's a good idea?

That could work. Most computers now days have a text reading voice engine.;)
