What developers want

Recommended Posts

Dynamic control over FX parameters like brightness/cone and to shift/rotate a particular light's position/orientation values. Useful for landing lights, logo lights, instrument lights.

Oh and please pleeeease pleeeeeeeeeeease provide for callbacks synced to the sim physics thread with access to the function for getting total elapsed sim time at the sub second accuracy....

Frag, - I see the change to your Commercial status didn't stick. I'm going to try to find out what is happening. At any case I know you are legit so no problem.

I just tried again and now it is showing. Sorry for the delay but it is fixed now.  Rock on.

 


Thank you.

Regarding simconnect - first of all, it is a function of Camera6dof. Need full control of 6 variables (plus 7 is zoom) - Camera6dof (x,y,z,x1,y1,z1,zoom) - get the current values and the ability to change.

Yet, the simulator must return through a variable camera state that is selected by the user at the moment - it's either a Spot, or an external camera or a world camera.

Still, it would be nice to have more variables from the simconnect returning data about the physics of the flight model.

In any case, you need a good description of the SDK and more information about the use of data through simconnect (or another structure, if something other than simconnect will be the interface with the simulator) .

Freeware Developer. Admin of a forum about scenery design.

It would be great if Nvidia PhysX could get into the simulator, that would be a big deal. Because you could get a whole range of credible animations.

The windsock would not just wag, but he would flutter in the wind (cloth modifier). But also dynamic collision, gravity, friction, etc. If you hit, for example, with the wing to a light pole, then the mast breaks off at predefined predetermined breaking points.

These are just small examples.

Freeware airfile designer

Please fix/develop

1) Jet engine simulation, fuel incorrectly burns from Fn (net thrust) when it shoud burn from Fg gross thrust (1506&1507 in the turbine tables)

2) CL v mach, no rendering of compression effect v mach so pitch increases 

3) TSFC value, sim currently has 1 hard coded value for all regimes of flight, please make this dynamic so that fuel burn can be scaled at all aspects of flight instead of faking it through a gauge

4) Sim1.dll, please expose the values in here and allow some of the sims physics to be controlled externally. Eg rolling friction for concrete is way too high in sim, remove or elaborate on some of the hard coded turbine modelling within sim1.dll and put them in the airfile or aircraft.cfg

5) Please give us the ability to model more than 2 stages of a jet turbine, ie Rolls Royce engines 3 stage N1/2/3

6) Please rework the mach tables to provide higher resolution than 0.2 increments, 0.1 would be better 

loads more on Fsdeveloper, but many thanks

Dai - both freeware developer and commercial developer for PILOT'S.

Upgrade those terrible 8-bit graphics to 24-bit. The latest generation of Nvidia GTX2000-series graphics cards and 4K monitors is a complete nightmare for any form of gradient, however slight. I thought I'd had a few problems with the older GTX900-series cards on HDMI monitors, but 8-bit graphics on Turing cards is a swamp without a bottom.

freeware MV-22B developer.

1. more option for flight model like VTOL

2. more flexible for custom variable to be use in multiplayer.

Here's another one:

more engines! It'd be great if wee could develop something with more than 4 engines.

This is a bit vague...So I will elaborate on it.

For fast jets, there are 2 types of afterburners. Staged burners (like the F-18's 6 stages, the F-4's 4 stages, the F100-PW-220's 5 stages or -229s 11 stages), and linear variation, like the J85 in the T-38 or the F110-GE-129 which have basically unlimited precision selection between MIL and MAX. FSX only supported stages.

And another item I just thought of....If the rain without clouds could be fixed, and access to precipitation zone data in DirectX texture form for weather radar displays provided....If the actual precipitation rate and directions could be simulated, would be even better for detecting windshear and turbulence.

I would also be nice if the SDK could support other 3D developing tools besides 3Dsmax, for example Blender as it would allow many more freeware developers to contribute with the ecosystem

+1 for this request.  The community created an FSX model exporter for Blender and it would be nice to have this from the beginning with the new sim.  I made the Aerosoft DC-8 largely with Blender -- it's a great tool and free.  3Dsmax is just too expensive and does not offer any obvious advantage over Blender for model creation and texturing.
