About cameras view on your server

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

He is necessary that user views  be saved  also  and and used on his PC of  the user. Because  there may be failures on your 'server'.

-the user may also want to make the simulation without internet connection.

-Its internet connection may be unavailable for reasons of failures
a router or the like.

-The access provider  can sometimes block line, and it can also be
failures.

- and then there is also respect for the freedom of users to use or not its Internet connection to do the simulation flight.

 

Regard

I entirely agree with the OP.

 

Storing stuff in the cloud is all very well until there is some problem with the Internet connection. There should *always* be an option to store (and restore) a local copy of ALL remotely-stored settings in order to prevent connectivity problems from rendering the app unusable.

 

(This opinion is based on some decades of experience in the software business, incidentally.   ;-)   ).

 

Cheers,

 

Brian

I would like to see an offline storage too.

The cloud storage is very useful and easy to use but some people also fly on their laptop and may always not have an internet connection closely.

And in case of any problem from the fsfx side (I hope not of course!) or our internet connection, we simply can't access our presets and that's really a pity.

It really happens: My router suffered from a shortcircuit today. New one will arrive in 3-4 days.

I can still fly without live weather and use saved weather themes instead. But without camera definitions?

 

Please provide an offline solution soon.

It is obvious that this unique option for our cameras views, perhaps not an option for the long term! more not perdont of view, that our freedom must be respected.

Concur. Absolutely.

I'm working in the support team for a major smarthome system which also depends on an active internet connection on the users' side.

Don't ask how much hassle, cost and grievances are incurred by doing it this way. I'm suffering through this ordeal from day to day, on the server side.

I was like: "Oh this product is interesting"

Then I learnt that. Show stopper.

 

So I'm sticking with EZOK, less performing, but no connection requiered.

There is also another topic concerning this request : http://www.avsim.com/topic/497461-why-the-need-for-an-active-internet-connection

It would be fair to receive an answer about what we could expect about that =)

Keven has responded multiple times regarding this issue.

To summarize; the internet connect issue will be addressed "after" the release of v1.  

So, if it's a major sticking point with you, wait until it's resolved to purchase or install ChasePlane.
