FGExtend

Postby icare38 » Sat Oct 15, 2016 11:32 am

Mumble radio management
FGExtend is a standalone program to get around some FG problems.
I initially wrote it for personal purpose, but i think some people may be interested.

Features:
Switching mumble rooms by simply altering active COM frequency on FG (radio range is processed).
OPTIONAL Terrasync alternative based on terraGIT, enhanced error management, alert if destination tile is not fully loaded.
ATCs based Notepad.

Please read carefully the readme.txt file (it's not so long).

Download is available here:
https://fshare.udtq.fr/dl/OELmGZwJYTJ5?key=zmJMqSrdpkKJ9XT6EAf8

The package contains both Linux and Windows variants.

Any suggestion is welcome.

Best regards.

Version 2016.10.25

Due to unpredictable event, the 'Import' feature does'nt work any more with the default configuration.
You can either download 2016.10.25 release (recommended, unchanged link) or just alter the "SQL Host" field in the configuration window, setting it to "FGExtendDB.autosoft.fr".

Best regards.

SVN terrasync will be going away at some point in the future... there is question on the table if it can go away now... it has basically been planned since at least the beginning of 2016... possibly earlier since the move from gitorious and googlecode to sourceforge... everything switched to using HTTP for terrasync some months back... even terramaster has been changed to use the new HTTP methods and index files... the best thing i saw when i dropped the SVN method was the freeing up of many mega/giga bytes of drive space when i killed the no longer needed .svn database directory...

Hi,

For linux only:
Due to a mysqlclient librairie version issue, this package includes the correct one,
and a script to launch FGExtend exporting this library.

Best regards.

ALLFEX/ZENSERV

Postby icare38 » Mon Aug 07, 2017 2:22 pm

Hi,

Since allfex is down from several days, it's a good opportunity to switch to zenserv:
mumble.zenserv.fr port 60303.

Try... and stay.

Best regards.

Release 2017.12.10

What's new in version 2017.12.10

1) Correction of 3 bugs regarding the "Terrasync" feature
2) Alarm added (warning in fgfs every 65 seconds) if the "Terrasync" function is supposed to be used (the folder declared in the configuration exists) but is disabled (checkbox).
3) Adding a blacklist in the configuration to not load / update some tiles.
4) Rename the FGExtend.py file to terra5.py (avoid launching it by mistake).
5) TerraGIT is no longer supported, as i'ts protocol is often modified.
6) Integrated Mac beta.2 version.
