Hi, Part of the carrier code is sent to Erik. The code seems to trigger a bug on irix. Therefore I have choosen to split the changes into smaller ones, which might be a good idea anyway.
On *top* of the patch sent to Erik (I expect that to go in :), the following updated set of patches is available from ftp://ftp.uni-duisburg.de/FlightGear/Misc_maf/carrier-20041121 Apply carrier-operations.diff to flightgears source directory. Put JSBSim-dropin.tar.bz2 into the JSBSim subdirectory. Apply data.diff to the data directory. Use the slightly updated FA-18.tar.bz2. For completeness, the patch sent to Erik is available with the groundcache.tar.gz on the same ftp server. User visible changes are: Mostly keybindings. Since H/h are already used for the hud. The h'O'ok is now controlled via O/o. To arrest the aircraft's launchbar at the cat user the L key (applying the brakes is no longer suffucuent). To arrest the aircraft the aircrafts velocity wrt the carrier needs to be zero. You will notice that the aircraft is fixed at the cat by a slight pitching of the aircraft. As usual apply flaps and thrust. Then pressing C will launch the aircraft. Non user visible changes: Much cleanup/code documentation. Put the groundcache into its own class. Little changes in the way the launchbar/holdback is modeled.
