Well, I've managed to err, I'll just say rear-end the Equipment Failures Dialog, so the top priority at the moment is to get that fixed. Progress may be slightly slower than before, though, as (don't tell Groucho!) I have developed an interest in DEFCON.

UPDATE : Release coming soon!

I'm afraid I'm going to get rid of the equipment faulures system. It's proving to be far too much work, far too frustrating, and frankly I don't think it's worth all the time that it's consuming. All that I need to do now is tweak the AP a little, and then I'll be able to make a Beta 0.3 release.

~Tom

P.S. If anyone would like to have the equipment failure system documents, just PM me.

Thank you, Erik for making so many improvements to the FDM (and putting up with my incredibly unscientific descriptions of problems with past FDMs!)

As for the equipment failure system, I think I'll try and see if I can get the old version (the one in the release from a few days ago) to work. If it works, that's just going to stay as it is.

Good news!

The old equipment failure dialogue works, so that means that you can set your engines on fire whenever you want to. I have also added wingtip vapour trails.

Bad News!

I can't change anything in the equipment failures dialog. If I do, the model refuses to load. The only error message was this :
Code: Select all
Uncaught Exception: you should see a meaningful error message
here, but your GLUT (or SDL) library was apparently compiled
and/or linked without exception support. Please complain to
its provider!

Either way - I think we're ready for a Beta 0.3 release. Just wait while I upload the files to my website...

http://aaliveries.yolasite.com/resources/fokker100%202.zip - that's the download link for the main aircraft.

http://aaliveries.yolasite.com/resources/Fokker%20100%20Livery%20Pack.zip - that's the download link for the livery package.

Enjoy!

What problems are you having with downloading from Yolasite? Oh well. I'll put the files up on easy-upload.nl or somewhere. I'll be damned if I'm using 4Shared, MediaFire, or any other ad-riddled mess to host my files.

So, any complaints? Problems? Good points? Does the autopilot work okay for you, for example?

Hooray! Feedback! :D

Cabin views, eh? I've been asked to implement those before. I'll see what I can do.
