Any of you seen this thread? LINK

 

It has possibilities. If we could cobble together a crew to fly it, I could host it. Bags I FSX.  :smile:

It's looking like I don't even have to set up a server. Just run the program. That can't be right. surely. Oh I forgot, you don't like being called Shirley.

 

Can we set up a day/time for a trial run? We'd only need an FSXer, a P3Der and an FSX_SEer to establish the principal.

You need to be able to communicate your IP address to the others..

 

In my case, when I look up my IP address, I get a string of about 8 hex numbers.. is that right?

 

Something like:

 

2001:569:xxxx:c200:148c:xxxx:a70e:xxxx

 

Edit:

 

OK, this may well be right..

 

"IP addresses are usually written and displayed in human-readable notations, such as 172.16.254.1 (IPv4), and 2001:db8:0:1234:0:567:8:1 (IPv6)."

Quite right Bert. In the JoinFS program joiners are recognised by the hex thingy.

Frippe and I had an experimental flight this evening and it was deemed a success! Formation flying was possible with very little 'surge'. as long as you weren't wingtip to wingtip, then it became a little nervous. Nothing like as bad as FSHost or FSCloud.

It has a future.

..........It has a future, but still has a few wrinkles to sort out. Early days.

Off topic - This new software (not JoinFS) is brilliant! Spent a few hours last night going through it and am completely blown away! There is so much to say about this program that I could supply you (but won't) with -
 

And I proceeded to tell him the story of the twenty-seven eight-by-ten
color glossy pictures with the circles and arrows and the paragraph on
the back of each one, and he stopped me right there and said,
"Kid, I want you to go and sit down on that bench that says 'Group W'... NOW, kid!!"

Those using the F1 GTN series GPS' will really like this as will make flight plans for your unit.
 
I can only recommend you to give it a try.. There's no installation or removal routine, is lightweight on the system and gives the pilot much more information than any other planner / moving map - bar none! Plus.. There's more to come! 
 
WOW!  :good: 
 
EDIT - The author, Alex, made another program called "Little Logbook", after making a runways.xml was able to export my logbook to a googleearth.kml. It shows where I've flown around the earth since 2011! SWEET!

I tried it also and was able to load our lost world pln plan, see it on the map, and export it to my gtn 750.

 

Very slick!

I must admit that I tried it a couple of days ago but I missed the feature of exporting the flight plan to the GTN 750  :mad: , and that is a function I really like.... :smile:, but I still can't figure out how you did that Roman...

Export the flightplan to a gfp file.

 

Copy that gfp file to FSX\F1GTN\FPL

 

In the 750:  Flightplan,  Menu, Catalog, Import flightplan

Thanks Bert, I had a little conversation with Roman and discovered, that I used an older version of LittleNavMap. With the current one it is no problem to save and import a plan into my GTN 750. Great feature!!

Well,  it seems I have an older version of the GTN750 Software, the Catalog does not show my flightplan in the list of stored plans and it does not offer an "import" function.

If I remember correctly, with the new version I would loose my world wide database, so I think I stay with what I have and keep my database as it is.
