Hello !
Made a short test for now. Everything seems to be OK for me on a cool mission to Mars using the "stock" DG. It could be useful to say that this is not, i repeat THIS IS NOT an autopilot !!!  :badsmile:
But it gave me what i was looking for, and i've crashed the bird all by myself...  :wonder:
Thanx for that, keep up the good work, i'll make another mission this weekend.  :beer:

PS : while we're waiting "patiently" to catch the updated UMmu, does someone know if there is a way to get any kind of astronauts to spawn on a planet ? Even static ones, just for the cool view ?

Hello,

The MFD seem work well for me too. No CTD at launch, or in scenario. It flying me to the destination. :)
Thanks for this ! :top:

A message appear on the MFD when we banking too much, really too much :badsmile: ("Warning high bank, Vectors may be wrong").
We can enter the lon and lat in order or not, the coordinates are recognized either (E/W and N/S, minus letters approved). Strange coordinates like 178.32f aren't validated.

I'm thinking having a very little issue : when selecting another vessel in the F3 window, i was not able to enter coordinates in the target field of the MFD. Closing the window enable to edit the field. Finally, it seems the only window in scenario that make this...

I tested this on the moon, i went to a ton of craters and locations. It's just amazing :wor:

The only weird thing that it did 1 time was when i tried to enter one set of coordinates in memory it wouldn't do it, the selected slot would change to "empty" and after that no matter what coords i tried to enter on any of the slots .. it just gave me the empty slot.

The only way to solve that was to restart orbiter.

At first i thought it was because somehow my coordinates were wrong BUT 1 hour later i tried to replicate the "bug" with the same set of coordinates and with no success. Now it works.

I have no idea what was wrong.

Hello,

The only weird thing that it did 1 time was when i tried to enter one set of coordinates in memory it wouldn't do it, the selected slot would change to "empty" and after that no matter what coords i tried to enter on any of the slots .. it just gave me the empty slot.

I have this very odd thing, and restarting Orbiter doesn't change anything, but i can enter another name + location in another slot. I having not tested the MEM fonction until now.
Trying to enter : Kourou/Earth 52.73W 5.20N give me an empty slot,
enter : Kourou 52.73W 5.20N give me the line accordingly,
enter : Kourou/Earth current give me  the line accordingly with current location,
enter : Kourou / Earth 52.73W 5.20N is not validated,
enter : Kourou / Earth current give me  the line accordingly with current location,
enter : KourouEarth 52.73W 5.20N give me an empty slot,
enter  : KourouEarth current give me  the line accordingly with current location...

For exemple, same things happen with Gran Canaria, San Marco and Hammaguira bases, but Kasputin Yar/Earth work (just the "th" is cut due to the 16 chars limit).

:wonder:

Hello,

The update seems to be OK, even with chars like # § % ! :top:

I'm going to be boring :sad: , but locations with one or both coords at 0.0 (right on the ref meridian, and/or at the equator) give a empty slot...
I don't knowing that, but a floating weather station is at "Null Island", at the cross point between the Greenwich meridian and the equator.
https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Null_Island ;)
Keep up the great work ! :beer:

The more problems you find, the more I'm happy...  :badsmile:

New version with null island:
http://orbiter.dansteph.com/2020_beta/web/GPSMFD_20201214.zip

I added also a check for lon+-180 and lat+-90 (before that, lon 999 was accepted)
and "-6m/s 6m/s" display was inverted.

Cheers

Dan

Hey, any day that Dan releases something will automatically become a Tuesday. We just have to insert the appropriate number of leap-days.

Hi Dansteph

Regarding your tremendous work and development with the UMMU/UCGO/Deltaglider IV and the Arrow Freighter,i am seriously curious when these major addons will be released for the Orbiter 2016 version.I have currently the Orbiter 2016 on hold,since i don't see the point installing it before these major addon of yours will see the light of day,and that i think those addons are somehow " essential " for the Orbitersim 2016 version..I tip the hat for your work,and i am waiting anxiously for any release from you...Thank you so much :wor:

That's very true, this game is worthless without Dan's add-ons.
Great Job Dan! All credits should go to you!

Whoa there, I wouldn't say Orbiter is worthless without Dan's OrbiterSound, DG-IV, UMmu/UCGO, and Arrow. That does a disservice to Martin Schweiger. Even without sound, cargo, or freighters, Dr. Schweiger gave us one hell of a playground to get lost in. DanSteph made Martin's universe richer with his sounds, interactive objects, and vessels. I'd say we're lucky to have both and are richer for both their efforts! So, let's celebrate Orbiter as we look forward to Tuesday!

I think it's a shame not to install Orbiter2016 when several major addons are working ...

Orbitersound 5.0
KOUROU
AMSO
GAIA Mission
AMMAGUIR
ROCHAMBEAU Airport
SpaceX Mission Package (2016-present)
US ISS A to Z v.3
Space Transportation System 2016
.....

You are forgetting XR Fleet and XRSound...
Both very deep and as advanced (if not more) than Dan's DGIV.

That's borderline heresy right there haha. Joking aside, those are good addons too, though I like Dan's sound addon better as well as certain functionalities of DGIV (cold start interactivity, eject, explode to million pieces, etc.)
