1. ### C++ Question Change Visual Studio Vars

Hello I have one question regarding visual studio: I cannot find out were those \$(ConfigDir) variables are set. How can I modify them if they are wrong? I've searched through the project files but can't find them and even in this view they cannot be edited...
2. ### API Question Getting orbit altitude for a given time from Orbital Elements

Ha thanks again, now I'm able to draw the flight path (yellow line) easy (before I used a simple, numerical euler integration) and to calculate importantant altitude information :) It's much faster now! Now I can think about to do the burn to flatten the flight path for final approach...
3. ### API Question Getting orbit altitude for a given time from Orbital Elements

Ok I testet the following: double SurfaceSpeedMFD::getAltitudeOverBase() { OBJHANDLE hRef = mfdi->v->GetGravityRef(); ORBITPARAM *prm = new ORBITPARAM; ELEMENTS el; double angle = mfdi->distanceToBasePad / oapiGetSize(hRef); // mfdi->distanceToBasePad is ground track...
4. ### API Question Getting orbit altitude for a given time from Orbital Elements

Thank you! And how can I get dt for an angle or distance(ground track) to travel from now?
5. ### API Question Getting orbit altitude for a given time from Orbital Elements

Hello, is there a more or less simple way to get the altitude of an orbit for a given number of seconds from now from the orbital elements from the Orbiter API?
6. ### Get Time to a given distance

Ok that answers my questions thank you!
7. ### Get Time to a given distance

Hi one question: When V0 - Speed relativ to given point s - distance to a given point a - constant acceleration, (positiv, negativ or 0) are given, how can I calculate the time to pass the point in a common formula? I have found the formula but I don't guess it's corect for this case because...
8. ### Quaterinions and autopilot questions

Hello after a few years I started to continue some projects for Orbiter. But I'm a bit out from my thoughts years ago and cannot remember all the staff so I have some questions: First of all I want to remove some "Bug" I did using quaternions so I guess I builded them wrong and corrected somhow...
9. ### Project New Baseland Version

Did you use Program 400 with hover brake manouver? If yes I can cofirm the crash. It happens because in this scenario the altitude is way to high over the base pass for the XR2 because it has a very heavy hover engine and so it hadn't much time to flatten the approach path because else, the...
10. ### [Tuesday] Release of OrbiterSound 5.0 for Orbiter 2016

Hello, I've got a "Windows Defender" warning (5.0 and 5.1). Can I ignore that?
11. ### Gaming New Microsoft Flight Simulator?

Does somebody figured out if it supports VR in the release version? I can't find a clear official statement... .. ah maybe not at launch..: Will Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 Have VR Support? Yes, head of Microsoft Flight Simulator Jörg Neumann has said that VR is a "high priority" for...
12. ### Gaming Digital Combat Simulator Thread

I mean that some parts are still classified, and I read that the employment of the AGM-E was also classified in 2013 when the video was posted, maybe it changed because the F/A-18 has been declassified, but some systems are still classifed, even for the A-10C and so they have been simplified...
13. ### Gaming Digital Combat Simulator Thread

Yes I agree that for the realistic parts it's more a simulation than a game, but for e.g. Combined Arms it's more a game, so it's a mix. I also heared that some features are modifed if they are classified, so maybe 5% are missed because they are classified but nobody knows. I also heared that...
14. ### Gaming Digital Combat Simulator Thread

It's a physic/world/simulation/"game" engine to simulate virtual combats. Mostly for aircrafts, some of them in a very deep level of details so that it is near realistc for those aircrafts. It's almost a flight simulator for military aircrafts and helicopters, but there is also a module for...
15. ### Launch News 50th anniversary of Apllo 13

50 years ago, Apollo 13 lifted off from the Cape. Apollo 13 has shown us how it is possible to manage a crisis. We need more of such experts as well today, no more stupid politcans please! :)
16. ### Gaming Digital Combat Simulator Thread

I'm waiting since EF2000 in 1995 to be back in this aircraft :tiphat::cheers: Here is also a new youtube video by Wags showing the new carrier operations:
