Ikarus C42 Microlite

Postby VicMar » Sat Jan 28, 2012 12:22 pm

Hi, Has anyone already made the Ikarus C42 for FG?

If so could you please lead me to the download.

If not, I might have a go myself.

Cheers,
VicImage

Thanks Gijs,

Is there a simple way for me to download this aircraft?

I am totally ignorant regarding getting stuff from the repositories.

Is there a set of instructions hidden in the wiki that I could read on how?

Cheers,
Vic

1. Click on "source tree" to open the repository. You can now browse through all the files.
2. Click on "Download master as tar.gz" to download the entire repository (won't work on fgdata, as that one is several GB, but for small repositories like this it works).

Thanks Gijs,

I shouldn't speak for anyone else, but for me this forum would be totally different if you weren't here.

Thanks for your help.

Best regards,
Vic

I did a quick fix on the model today:
- Plugged in some random instruments
- fixed some nasal errors.
- hid the 3-d line drawings in FG

The startup procedure now needs the battery and alternator switches turned on. They are mapped to the ( and ) keys. The } key is overloaded to be the starter key, too. So the key sequence '( ) } } } }' will start the engine.

Hi Ron,

Have you updated the files in the repository, or will you announce when there is a version for us to look at?

The commit log is less clicking: https://gitorious.org/ikarus/mainline/commits/master

I've done some work in the past week or so. Its a very flyable model now, if you don't mind the lack of a 3d outside. :P

Vicmar is supposed to be working on that.

lack of a 3d outside:

I shall have a completed outside very soon (I shall let Ron approve it before anyone else sees it), then I shall be texturing it soon after that.

Watch this space.
