They should both work, but I would suggest using https://github.com/HHS81/c182s/tree/C182T.

Hi Stuart,

I've realised the error. I'd downloaded it but not renamed the folder to just "c182s"
I'd imagine it's the same for @miguel.

Apologies for the mix up.

Hi Folks,

Just to let you know that the latest changes for the C182T have been merged into the master branch for the c182s, and also into fgaddon.

Is anyone having a "failed- Network error" while downloading?

Note that, unless something changed recently, any Canvas-based MFD using the "map" element (aka all ND/MapStructure stuff) suffers from the same issue when dealing with the polar coordinates, because the projection code was adopted from the hard-coded MapWidget implemented by James originally.

While the MapWidget and the original NavDisplay received updates/patches by Gijs and James, the Canvas projection code has never been updated accordingly.

For details, refer to James commit/fix below:
https://sourceforge.net/p/flightgear/fl ... b398323d7/
James Turner wrote:Fix polar rendering of map. (Bug #55)

Use an azimuth-equidistant projection, which handles high latitudes and
polar regions correctly. Written by Gijs de Rooy.

Yup, I don't think that has been addressed yet. I think there may be a problem here with the map tiles as well, which are using a different projection again..

There are several quick fixes that could be used at this point, either back-porting the work previously committed by James and GIjs, or exposing the projection handling to Nasal space via cppbind, so that a Nasal function can be used instead. Originally, Tom didn't like the latter though, because he wanted to avoid unnecessary Nasal overhead at runtime. Another idea we toyed with in response to TorstenD commenting on the issue, was using the property rule system for projections - because those are automatically XML-configurable, and everything runs at C++ speed anyway.

Technically, that would entail adding new projections in the form of property rules and then adding a Canvas projection to use a configurable property rule for each projection.

But if that's done, we'd have native speed/performance, and XML-level configuration options in XML space, i.e. if/when the need arises for a new projection, it can be implemented in the form of property rules.

Preferences / opinions ?

@stuart can you update-use this raster ? It contaits the missing elements, SD Card inserts, and some unaligned text (push-pan) that occurred when you edited-created first raster for the fg1000.
Thank you IA.

Can I resize PFD/MFD windows once they are displayed (from Aircraft menu)? For me it shows it is being displayed at 66% and I would like to know if there is in-flight possibility to adjust it?

It would be possible to implement, but I don't think it's currently implemented.

@Michat: Please share your SVG "sources", so that Stuart can get that committed to the repository, to make sure that we cannot lose any of your artwork again ;-)

@Hooray there isn't SVG sources for that. Original was sent to stuart, but it didn't contain the last modification of the card slot. My original file was lost as the email-cloud service had closed (open mail box). I have only 35mb of free space.

My idea is to use the raster img that I provide as the last chance.

camileck: Unfortunately not at present. However, if you are happy editing XML files, can you edit the file c182t-set.xml and look at line 582 which sets the scaling factor.

Do you want it larger or smaller? I could add additional options to the menu.

Michat - good news! I think I've located the .svg file on my computer so I can update the FG1000 with your work. It's definitely got the correct SD card inserts.
