The first payware add-on for FSW is available now: FS-Flightcontrol gives you control over every aspect of your flight and includes a moving map too, visit the homepage here: https://www.fs-flightcontrol.com/en/ FS-Flightcontrol also works with FSX, FSX:SE, X-Plane and that submarine simulator I mean P3D, so it's got to be great value... You can select which sim you want to use it with on launch, it then loads the scenery.cfg for that sim on first run: Then specify your start location and any other factors you require: There's a free 14-day trial, it's a 58mb download which took about 20 seconds on my PC, give it a try!
Hello all, I've been working on this project for quite a while now, and as of a few months ago, I've overcame a major go-nogo hurdle, so I am extremely excited to announce this: I've coupled FSX with a SimConnect DLL that utilizes a third-party fully-featured physics library to create an add on that will allow FSX to simulate spaceflight through a high-fidelity ballistic astrodynamic flight model. The physics model has highly capable set of features which will allow FSX users to define launch "stack" architecture in minute details, utilizing existing FSX SDK tools to create content and expand on the FSX functionality to push FSX into Earth orbit and outer space. This is NOT slew-driven engine; this is a completely new flight model that overrides FSX's existing flight model and re-defines the object using astrodynamic properties. Major features of the spaceflight dynamics module: deterministic, non-iterative dynamics solver fully-featured, high-fidelity collision engine precise point-force modelling (not just torques applied over major axis) ability to assemble a launch "stack" and simulate launch, staging and orbit insertion ability to build (assemble) and maintain persistent orbital structures ability to dock with other objects in orbit, and to swap user control User will be able to design content with all the usual FSX SDK tools, and expand it with a set of spaceflight-specific features to define it as a spaceflight object, be it payload, manned capsule, cargo, booster, main lifter, mating adapter, or whatever. While the current FSX limitations prohibit venturing too far from Earth (but far enough to have fun :wink: ), I've been exploring ways on how to simulate trip form Earth to other solar system bodies and I've had a few promising results. That, however, is a long term plan. For now, I'll include a few screenshots of the test scenarios I've been running while developing this engine. Enjoy!
After migrating to P3D v4.1, I started to add all my freeware sceneries via add-on.xml method. It's very nice, because you don't need to copy Effects files to the sim folder. The problem is that if I have more than 38 entries in my add-ons folder, I start to have some texture issues, like you can see in the picture bellow: It only happens if I have more than 38 entries, no matter what add-on is. Do you know if there is any limit of add-ons that can be added to the sim?
