Lockheed 1049H Constellation (Beta Release)

Postby Buckaroo » Mon Apr 20, 2009 7:28 pm

A new model representing the Lockheed Constellation 1049H series can be found here:

http://ltts.crlt.indiana.edu/grn/flightgear/

Lockheed1049Ha.jpg


Please note that this is far from a finished aircraft. There is much left to be done and many problems left to be resolved or re-worked, but it's my first Flightgear effort and I hope it is enjoyable in its current state. The model has been tested for FG 1.0 and 1.9, but may not work for bleeding-edge CVS users due to changes in the JSBsim FDM. I haven't had time to deal with that issue yet but I'll get around to it. If you download the model, please take a moment to view the README file included with the distribution, as it contains important and useful notes on the model.

I would also like to invite everyone interested in the Constellation to check out Yakko's guide to flying the 1049H model, also found on the same site noted above. He gave it a wonderful treatment.

Thank you and cheers to everyone who has helped or supported me on this project!

Great model, great cockpit.
That Aircraft is refreshing a lot of souvenirs , from my child life , when i went to Orly Airport to admire that wonderful bird.

Great idea to use the FDM of the 1049. by fhe "Unknown Author" ( in reality a very modest French man very aware with real AIrcraft, Aerodynamic etc... )

About the model, i could be wrong but it seems that the ambient color with the CVS FG is very dark.
About that ambient color, does the model wants an update ?

Indeeed it looks great! Unfortunately I'm a CVS-User, so the aircraft isn't working for me due to changes in nasal. :(
Would like to see a Lockheed 1049G Constellation as well! :D

Lol- 1.9.1 is already OSG!

But CVS-user (After-1.9.1-Release) will have problems to fly- which he said on his page! (Unfortunately it is a error in nasal, which I can't fix myself yet)

Oh I understand... You should create a second FG folder, for example one for 1.9.1 without CVS and the other one for CVS.. I did it once :)

This aircraft looks very nice, and I appreciate your work on it, but, and I'm sorry if I'm incorrect, I think there's a Super Connie already in CVS. Or maybe you're the maintainer of that and I'm just saying stupid stuff. I'm not saying that even if you were unaware of it that you should stop development of your model, I just mention it because you might already have a lot of your work done for you.

yep- there is a super conny already- but this new one here is the 1049 H- that's a difference.

Since, there is others example of duplicates or similar models, since, there is several opinions regarding that problem ( depending on the devel-team person, or may be, coming of a progress of FG policy ) , we won't now, worry this fact.

Like say HHS , it is not exactly the same model ( it is a variant ) , which could have been in the same directory, like there was in the past with others models, if the author had been the same.

The "old" Super Constellation already was a great FlightGear model, and now it's gotten the cockpit it deserves!
The new livery surely is beautiful, but the main attraction is on the inside:

For those who haven't seen it yet, behold:
