Postby dg-505 » Tue May 03, 2016 11:55 am

Hi there,

here we have the contest for the best FlightGear screenshot of May 2016 :)

Participation Rules
1. 15 entries (because a poll can only have 15 options)
2. Only one entry per person to give everyone a fair chance of submitting a screenshot.
3. You may enter one extra for somebody else. This person of course can submit their own candidate.
4. Please convert your picture from png to jpg (plenty of converters online).
5. Has to be taken with FlightGear.
6. Every picture should have a caption.
7. Screenshots must not be post-processed except from cropping and/or resizing.
8. You may change your entry as often as you want, until the voting starts.
9. You agree to license your screenshot under the CC-BY-SA 4.0 licence for publication by the FlightGear project.

Voting will start when 15 entries are reached or at the latest at 25th of May, in a seperate topic.

Best regards
Jonathan S.

It's a new feature, maybe will be shipped on the next version. We need a thread like developing screens or something similar.

It's the 'bird' effect... It's pushed now, if you have random objects on and look in the vicinity of Barcelona, you should be able to see a few swarms. I've also added some to the Caribbean.

Hehe, didn't say so... but I keep it fair, I'll only submit screenshots of things that are committed.

@Thorsten: I was expecting something shuttle related hiding in the background, between the birds ;)

Yeah, sorry to let you down :-) The Shuttle is actually pretty unwieldy as a glider, hard to get close to a swarm of birds. I managed to get the parachutist to go right through one and take a screenshot, but even in the C-172p it's non-trivial.

Of course, it is pushed, but you need a) random objects enabled b) to be in the vicinity of 'Barcelona' and the 'Carribean'.

I have no idea where else, but I know it is present in those two places.

No idea about the ppa.
