Just finished processing on YouTube at the time of posting.  HD may take up to an hour to be available. Obviously, best viewed at 720p or higher.   Do you think the music adds to, or takes away from the video?

There is a green line above the sight, what does that indicate?

Hey Dolby & welcome again!

 

The green line (vertical) is a slip indicator.   In my teens, I had the opportunity to spend some time in the front seat of a few gliders.  They all used a piece of yarn attached to the outside of the windscreen to serve as a slip indicator in flight. It gives real time slip feedback without having to look down at the ball on the instrument panel.   To me, the slip indicator is even more important on a virtual cockpit because we have no tactile feedback for slip in a virtual world.  The command to enable the on screen slip indicator is  .slip 1    Conversely, you can turn the slip indicator off by using the command .slip 0

 

I have a configuration file in the main warbirds folder called "fly2.cfg"  It was created with windows notepad and contains the following 3 commands:

 

.lindablair
.hls
.slip 1

 

.lindablair  = allows for a true 6:00 view, vs looking back over the shoulder.

.hls = Highlight Local Squad and makes squad member icons show up white.  Also allows squad members to be spotted on the radar map as white dots, (although you have to have been within icon distance of them once for them to show white on the dAR).

 

.slip 1  = on screen slip indicator. No more looking down at the ball on the instrument panel.

 

 

Commands contained within the fly2.cfg file are done each time you load onto the runway.  No more having to enter the commands each and every flight.
