Thanx for the answer Dan, i was just curious about your choices. I've already done billions of km with your vessels (and crashed a lot of them) and will do the same with this future release (rilize  :badsmile:).

The temptation becomes stronger for me to create "something flyable" for Orbiter. I'm still waiting because there are things in progress here and in Orbiter Forum, and i have a lot to learn before doing anything. There are tools too, now, that makes it a bit easyer. The "i would like" is becoming a "i want to".

(Downloading Blender right now...  :bebe:)

Ahah I'm glad I'm not the only one influenced by Dan to go out and model something for Orbiter (I'm trying to gather my buddies to make a "hard sci-fi Arrow" atm). Best of luck on your end!

More news soon, stay tuned...  :)

Tuesday have never felt so close and yet so far away!

Marvellous !  :love:

Really like the rover lift and the landing gears  :eek:

I think about the minor elevation issues that we could talk, the Arrow Freighter is very massive and its landing gears, to bear the massive weight, can slightly sink into the ground. And we know that lunar terrain is not only rocky :) So it is quite realistic finally and not embarrassing there.

And I will add that the gravity wheel fits with the vessel very well.

Thanks mates  :beer:

I made the feet higher so it "hide" 20-40cm sinking or floating error and this video was recorded with "Mesh resolution=64" in D3D9 advanced parameters.

Still not far from this landing site we can see as much as 2-4 meters error and the Arrow was almost half buried into Phobos at many places, we'll have to live with such problems until the good doctor do somethings.

Ooh phenomenal upgrade! (And more things for me to learn :) ) I can't wait to fly it in the future (and use autoland cause I clearly don't know how to land anything :badsmile: )

Not to be a downer in such a happy occasion, but is the web radio working for everyone else? It has error and won't show up in MFD again so it only plays the music files I put in the folder.

Nice gear animations.  Will you share the code for that?  Or tell we can do that

Of course one just need to ask.

To be optimized if you have several stuff to do, but here is a "standalone" function.
There is no control of validity of pointers so one may add that also.

Quote
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
// GetLonLatHeightRelativePoint
// Return longitude, latitude and height above surface
// of a point in vessel's relative coordinate.
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
double GetLonLatHeightRelativePoint(VESSEL *v1,VECTOR3 v3RelativePoint, double* dLong, double* dLat)
{
   OBJHANDLE hSurfaceRef = v1->GetSurfaceRef();
   double rt = oapiGetSize(hSurfaceRef);
   double dRadMeter,Height=0;
   VECTOR3 v3pos = { 0 };
   v1->Local2Global(v3RelativePoint, v3pos);
   oapiGlobalToEqu(hSurfaceRef, v3pos, dLong, dLat, &dRadMeter);
   double dElevation = oapiSurfaceElevation(hSurfaceRef, *dLong, *dLat);
   double dHeight = (dRadMeter - rt) - dElevation;
   return Height;
}

NEWS - Stolen image from Spacetech

Hidden in the data flow coming from the LMO (Low Moon Orbit) where one Arrow MK2 is being built there was this picture which was leaked to the social network... It show probably some new features.

It's incredible that such security hole still exists in 2061...



LMO image of the MK2 Number 3 in construction taken by an amateur..


Having some fun...  :programmeurhey:

Thanks.  So that give you the Y touchdown down point correct?

But how to make the gear appear to absorb the force?
As far as I know you can'y make it so the y value for each leg be different.  Of course alot of code for animation to adjust so the craft is level:)

The compression is done automatically by SetTouchDownPoint. What you want is to animate the gear accordingly.

Say you gear's lowest point is at 0.0.0 and extend until 0.-10.0.
So, for dAnimValue 0.0 the gear are at y=0 and for dAnimValue 1.0 they are at -10.
You take the dHeightOverGround of the highest point (0.0.0) then add a simple calculus with a factor of the total height:

double dAnimValue=max(0,min(1,1/10*dHeightOverGround)):
anim(Gear,dAnimValue);

Repeat for each gear.

Hope it help ?

It's good to have you back. Lack of your addons is probably one of the reasons why I've actually barely played the new orbiter.

Unfortunately, this web radio is dead.

-Open the "webr" file with notepad and replace the link with one below:

That doesn't work either, same can be said for other web radio files unfortunately. But it's not the biggest deal, I'll just play my music in the meantime :)
