TARDIS for FlightGear - GPL v.2

Postby cobe571 » Sat Jul 27, 2019 12:38 pm

I'm happy to announce the TARDIS - "Time And Relative Dimension In Space" for FlightGear Flight Simulator

Link to GitHub -> https://github.com/cobe571/TARDIS

The TARDIS is a fictional time machine and spacecraft that appears in the British science fiction television series Doctor Who.
It has the appearance of a blue telephone booth used by the British police in the 1960s

I have to confess that I have watched it since the first was shown in 1963 (in black and white). William Hartnell remains my favourite incarnation.

On my list of things to do if I had unlimited time and energy is to make a model of Dan Dare´s Anastasia, which took him from Earth to most of the planets in our solar system in an episode of the Eagle weekly comic book, This would combine astronavigation (possibly stolen fro FG´s Space Shuttle) with Anastasia´s fictional propulsion systems and flight control.

As long as you stay in Earth orbit... I guess we can navigate anything regardless of the propulsion system. We just can't actually go to other planets, the numerics isn't designed to do that.

Thank you. That's a model I have taken up and finished in 2017. Maybe it could be fun.

Do you know what? I have no idea how I could make it fly. Which FDM to use etc. I'll do some tests one of these days :)

I'm glad to see you comment on some of my posts. I'd like to see you more active on those posts where I publish "real" planes though. And I'd like to get back in touch.

i would suggest to use the UFO FDM but...

1. it is not YASIM or JSBSIM
2. you don't want/need all of the object placement stuff

but you might copy the UFO stuff over and replace the model with your TARDIS... then, at least in the beginning, you'd have a TARDIS that could be used to place objects :P

why the UFO? because the TARDIS, like the UFO, can fly in any direction at any speed...
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."

Following your suggestions now we already have a flying TARDIS :)
Many thanks!
