1) I would like to be able to display a simple text string at
runtime in the upper left corner of the screen using
Nasal (in order to display simple in-flight information).
I could imagine that something like this already exists, i.e.
for displaying ATIS or traffic information during flight, is
there a specific node within the property tree available to
set such a "message" item dynamically so that's then displayed
That way one could easily use Nasal to display runtime info,
one could also use such a feature to indicate things like that
the game's been paused (which is currently not being displayed)
And I hardly dare to ask: if such an item doesn't yet exist,
would anybody mind such an addition ?
2) And: Is it possible to load a Nasal file while the game is
running and execute it then ? I don't think there's any
documented way to do it-a corresponding menu item certainly
doesn't yet exist ;-) - at least I haven't seen anything
like that, basically I would like certain scripts to be
available/executed on demand, and not automatically be
loaded/executed each time at startup (Nasal subfolder),
that way it would be also easier to have multiple configurations
