Re: Suggestion: Elevation Correction

Just a thought but most group flights us the same or similar planes, start at a specific airport, and all meet up before taking off. Maybe instead of having to have a table of elevations for all airports, you could just have a button or similar for each aircraft to say "set to my altitude"...

Can't see recorded aircraft when using ORBX BOB

Not sure exactly when this crept in since it used to work. When I play back a recording to grab a video, if I am in Orbx's BOB (free download), none of the other aircraft are visible and don't show up in the view aircraft dialog. As soon as I switch to something else, they appear. It used to be I co...

A Virtual Reality Formation Constellation Run into Duxford

I did a flight of four Connies in formation from Stanstead to Duxford. It's VR but if you don't have a phone viewer, you can maybe just concentrate on one half of the screen. It's not the ideal way to see this stuff with all the distortion on a regular screen, but hopefully it gives an idea of the e...

Re: Using the JoinFS overdub, replay, and join cockpit features...

Totally agree, Peter! I've been saving my better "rides" to put people in to let them see what VR flight is like. And with them just riding along, they don't need to know how to fly! Can put them in any plane I have and let them look around. Aerobatics to racing, to low and slow. The helic...

Using the JoinFS overdub, replay, and join cockpit features...

I had a lot of fun doing this! Those screams you hear are all AI from the crew and passengers. :mrgreen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJopJm3qiyU The Join Cockpit feature is amazing and how you can go back and see everything from any airplane with all of the overdubbed planes present in the views...

Not seeing all planes network issue

I think we sorted at least one cause of this at a group fly yesterday. One of the participants was having difficulty seeing all the planes in the group. He'd see less than half and I believe he would even have planes occasionally come and go. Everyone else was seeing all the planes just fine so it w...

Re: Duplicates planes !!

Hey Peter, just my opinion, but I'd rather it be a manual "Bookmark current connection" kind of thing rather than automatic. We were trying connecting to others in the group fly just to test their port forwarding and such and that could clutter up a list if people end up connecting to extr...

Re: Duplicates planes !!

Hey Peter, we did a group flight yesterday and at least one of the guys was reporting multiple planes in his list as well. This was with 1.0.17 Test. I don't have any other information except my airplane list was fine. We did mention turning off AI traffic and such but I don't know that that helped....

Re: Recording formations with JoinFS

Could you guys record and post the .jfs file of the flight?

That way even if people can't join in to observe, they can always download the .jfs file and watch the replay.

I've been hoping aerobatics teams would start doing that anyway. Would be cool!...

Re: FS Join Bandwith Usage

Hey Peter, one request on reducing bandwidth - if there is any way it could reduce accuracy in multiplayer close formation multiplayer flying or recording, it would be really good to make that an option. And the TeamSpeak angle is a good one. When we did a big multiplayer flight a while back, there ...
