Lionheart Aircraft

  • Lionheart Creations is having a big summer sale and as I look at all of his stuff and the prices, I can't help but be sad that he was not able to get his aircraft into Aerofly. http://www.lionheartcreations.com/summer_sale


    I would have pretty much brought his entire lineup, and I hope both that the new SDK is more helpful for potential developers, and that Lionheart has not given up on Aerofly forever.


    That would be such a shame!


    Just imagine.

  • I've had good contact to him and tried to help him with the limited time I had but the progress wasn't very fast. He said he needed a break and might come back to the Aerofly development. Programming an aircraft for the Aerofly is quite different to the way it's done in MS-based flight simes like FSX. There you name a part "gear-left" or something like that and it magically does it's thing. In the Aerofly you have the freedome to do what ever you want but that adds a little bit of extra work for the standard items as well. I love being able to program the aircraft in such a way that it retracts the landing gear with the the radar altimeter output or the aileron input or what ever other logic circuit I might need.


    I also hope he has not given up yet and will come back. With the upcoming update we might need to change a few things around before he can use his aircraft but nothing to serious. Just replacing some names.

  • Bill featured my old bird (N6948K) in his Piper Pacer release. His models are always a delight in the sim.

    Hey, that's interesting to know. It must be fun to fly your own aircraft in the sim.


    Lionheart has provided some source material to IPACS for improving the SDK and the documentation. So there is still a chance to see his aircrafts once in aerofly. But this is not a short term process and strongly depends on the workload of IPACS and Lionheart's time management.
