Hi guys, First post on the mailing list after lurking for a while. My name is Jeroen Hoppenbrouwers and I have been active for about five years in a niche of the flight sim world, the (very active) community around Aerowinx 747-400 Precision Simulator (www.aerowinx.com). This is an extremely detailed systems and IFR sim, with nearly no outside view.
I wonder about two things: 1. Many people nowadays slave the Microsoft sim to PS1 to get a full outside view on a secondary system without having to "fly" the MSFS. This gives them best of both worlds. I wonder whether FlightGear at present time would be capable to fulfill the role of a scenery generator? 2. I saw comments about VATSIM/IVAO floating by. I wrote a fully certified client for both networks that is built in such a way that connecting it to FlightGear should take an hour at most (www.hoppie.nl/sb747). Would there be interest to do this and offer it to VATSIM/IVAO for re-certifi- cation (re-, as the base software won't change at all)? Portability is no issue as everything is in Tcl/Tk -- however we still suffer from the "security by obscurity" dogma of both networks, so I can't release all sources just yet. If you browse my site, you might find other goodies that could be interesting for FlightGear. I won't do MSFS, so it looks like I'm stuck with you for a while :-) Jeroen [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://www.hoppie.nl/ _______________________________________________ Flightgear-devel mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://mail.flightgear.org/mailman/listinfo/flightgear-devel 2f585eeea02e2c79d7b1d8c4963bae2d
