ATR-72-500 omega - Fixed bug jump into the air

Postby paju1986 » Mon Dec 25, 2017 3:09 pm

Hello.

There was a well know old bug on the ATR-72-500 omega on FGMEMBERS that makes the aircraft jump into the air while taxing. Now i get it fixed. Enjoy. :)

I am thinking in solving some other bugs that i have found since the aircraft seems unmanteined.

I tested it and can confirm you fixed it, thanks!
I am curious, what exactly does that change in Engines/prop_hs568f.xml do?

I took a quick look at those tables a while ago trying to see some unusual "spike" in numbers that might cause the jump like the one that is your fix for the bug, so I'm a bit puzzled, I have very limited knowledge of jsbsim but I expected those values to vary more smoothly.

Great work, thanks a lot.

Maybe you can add taxi and landing lights and a logo.

I think this version of the aircraft is not on fgaddon repositories...
The one on fgaddon is different

Can be uploaded as a different version?

Dependent on the relative quality level (which I don't know) and provided the licensing is GPL V2+, the following options exist:

* if one is very developed and the other very simple, the simple version can be retired to the attic and replaced (that's likely going to happen with the Airbus A-320 and has happened with the Tu-154b)

* if both versions are reasonably developed but in different directions (say one has good graphics, the other good FDM), then
- the preferred strategy is to merge them into one single project
- if that is not possible, they can exist side by side as variants distinguished by a different *-set file
- if that is also awkward, there can be two different projects under different names

* if both are highly developed and merging makes no sense because of different development philosophies, two separate projects are best

The usual path is to try to get in touch with the maintainer of whatever version - in the best case, you can get a lot of help with merging, in the worse case you'll learn quickly whether you need a separate project.

Usually says so inside the <author> tag of the aircraft. Or in the copyright notice.
