    Habe das gleiche oder sehr ähnliches Problem.

    General question to this topic and some basic ideas:


    Would it be possible to add a special xml file like the existing ones for cultivation, mesh, etc

    and place these in special new subfolders or a fitting scenery folder to 'extend' missing data

    when reaching a special region.

    Then users could add different navaids to their favorite airports.


    Or, a second thought, could theese user extensions be added/imported to one aerofly file

    to extend the old databases, so let the users do the work for updating/extending your old

    databases. ;-)


    Or like fscloudports, use an online database to collect theese data and export

    a global 'extension' file to the navigation database. I think when the navigation data is

    filled manually from official sources, there is no copyright problem with this collection.


    Or ... someone has a much better idea.

    I am software developer since 40 years, and i grew up with fortran, pascal, c, c++, c# and some more. I am developing (windows) business applications against linux database servers and never used java and python because of performance (and many other) problems. I use c# with business libraries (DevExpress).


    BUT c++ is in my opinion the absolutely best choice to get this performance of aerofly. You will find enough benchmarks and comparisons in the internet, and java and python are _much_ slower and for me no useful languages for this purpose, i think, ipacs uses the best language for their sim.

    Yes! Some years ago i posted the idea to start geconvert with a parameter like -autoexit or -close to close it automatically if wanted. In addition to that an exit code 0 / <> 0 would be nice to see if it ran without/with errors.

    The earlier Versions worked with my proxy settings for windows 10. In the actual version 1.0.1 i get no previews and downloads for google and bing maps.

    I have to delete my proxy settings an open the needed ports for direct internet access on my firewall. Did you change something in this case?

    Google and bing itself are working fine with proxy settings.

    Yes, you have to use the cyclic,

    while using the left rudder to avoid turning, the whole heli is blown sideways to the right from the tail rotor.

    Another point regarding R22 controls in VR with Oculus, profi flight mode:


    I first started in VR with Joystick an rudder pedals, worked fine but cyclic very sensitive.

    Now i tried using the rift controllers, cyclic now very nice to handle, great experience,


    BUT: grabbing downwards to the collective works not always precise enough, so i tried

    using the joystick on the left rift controller for that, but with every movement for the

    collective, the pedals/tail rotor ist always affected, because i am not able to only

    control the collective with the rift joystick. And because i'm using separate pedals

    i would like to disable this additional influence on my pedals. Especially while

    take off or landing while changing the collective, this additional unwanted movement

    of the pedals is disturbing very much.


    My wish is: IF tail rotor control (and/or cyclic etc.) in the heli setup is assigned to any

    other controller, DISABLE it automatically on the corresponding rift controllers,

    to avoid unwanted additional input while using the VR controllers.


    And as i said in an older post, especially for the r22 it would be VERY nice to use

    the Rift buttons for trim or view change.

    Today i got my lenses, one week after ordering.


    I am very satisfied with them. Installation was no problem, they fit very well and the quality is comparable with my glasess.


    The best thing is, they dont pinch my nasal bridge and the temples dont pinch my ears. I feel much more convenient with my oculus now.

    I found VR Optician by VR-Lens Germany (vroptician.com), i will order there, and report, too.

    I move the controllers behind the sensor an then they disappear completely. Starting in Steam is no problem when they are behind the sensors before start.

    But i use the oculus, maybe the vive handles this in another way.

    Thanks Jeff,

    i know, but the Question was wether i can use addons bought via orbx direct on my two pc with a steam version of aerofly or only on one of them.

    i am not sure if there is a difference between an addon bought via steam (dlc) or an addon bought via orbx.

    Sometimes orbx has much better prices for aerofly addons compared to the steam prices, so i would prefer to buy via orbx direct.

    Regards

    Roger

    I have two different gaming rigs and use the steam version. So I can use my Steam account to play on both, not at the same time but it works great. If I now purchase addons via orbx directly, does anyone know whether I can use it on both machines or only on one?

    Regards

    Maybe its possible to add for this setting (and others) a file in the aircraft folder e.g. c172_user.tmd for overwriting the default values, so the program could read for example c172.tmd + c172_takeoff.tmd + c172_user.tmd and so on. Perhaps this user-setup can be stored in the user directory C:\Users\Roger\Documents\Aerofly FS 2\aircraft\c172 ... instead of the application folder.

    I'm currently looking at the feasibility of internally taking a screenshot of the GeoConvert window every 5 seconds and testing for the presence of any green (as seen in the success message).


    Slightly bonkers but would work.

    I am a software developer for over 35 years now, and i think it should be an easy task for ipacs to add a

    • command line parameter like -q(uit) / -e(xit) or
    • an option in the tmc-file like <[bool][exit_when_finished][true]> or something like that to do that.

    I think your idea looks like 'crack a walnut with a sledgehammer', so why not ask ipacs, should be an intermediate task for relaxing from r22 development ;-)

    I agree, but sometimes when I leave the pc alone doing many tiles I got reboots. Tested on machine with intel and Ryzen processors. On Ryzen processors the the reboots occurred more often, even with many more cores. I know that GeoConvert isn’t designed for using it this way but if IPACS decides to enhance it with these little improvements, protocols and starting and stopping with exit code for success , then AeroScenery can start a configurable amount of instances and that would make it a great solution avoiding many problems. But as you wrote I was able to run more smaller tiles, too.

    Thanks for this great tool!

    Everything works great, Selecting Areas, Zoom Levels, downloading, Stitching, creating files for geoconvert.

    Only weak point in the moment is geoconvert. I had to increase swap space significantly to avoid geoconvert system crashes on windows 10. Geconvert needs up to 25 GB when converting. Next point is I have to convert in smaller partitions. When aeroscenery starts too much instances of geoconvert, everything gets unstable and often stops working.

    I think when geoconvert can be started once, writes some protocol and ends itself with a defined exit code and can then be run with the next area and so on, that would be a wonderful workflow.
