Is it still possible to add the file whazzup.txt of our group "Les Copains d'Abord" to your JoinFS map?

If so, here is the address: http://map.lca-scenery.fr/whazzup.txt

Thank you !

Best regards,
Stéphane


Hi Stéphane,
Added.
I was unable to test as your hub appears Offline so let me know if all is OK.

Thank you so much for adding LCa to your map.

I am connecting to my joinFS server but my plane don't show on the map.

The JOINFS map will only show airborne aircraft.

If you're still not shown send me your server IP and I'll connect and see if my aircraft shows.

Hi Again Mr. Roo!

Well the new JonFS server map is working great, but I have a question concerning the Google API key. simply, what do I need to do to get the Googel API key?

Again Thank you for your help,
Kenny.

https://developers.google.com/maps/docu ... et-api-key

Although it looks like the map works without an api key.

A year ago a key was needed.

The latest test version has a new setting 'include global users' with the Whazzup file option. Enabling this option will populate your map with all aircraft on all JoinFS hubs. 8-)

All showing on the main JFS map.
Because of this I have now removed the separate group whazzup files from the main map as you are now already shown.
So if you had setup a webserver purely to be seen on the main map you can now remove it.

Users of programs like Servinfo can get the data at http://roo.servebeer.com/jfs/status.txt
This will show all JoinFS users in your program.

Peter I noticed a new tick box in aircraft I think it was.

Does that enable aircraft using different hubs to be seen in a users sim?
Handy for ATC and lone pilots if it does.

No, they will only show in the list. However, I'll add a way (probably a button) to connect to the same hub session as that aircraft/user.

And I'll also be adding a new button/mode on the main window that automatically joins the most appropriate hub based on your geographical location. As you fly it will switch hubs as necessary depending on the surrounding traffic so it effectively becomes a single world session.

Peter:

Can this JoinFS map track pilot flight time?
