The new tower software for IVAO

I wanted to write some software again but not until now i found a new project.

When i do some tower controlling on IVAO i use several different website and the Ivac software. Scratch pad on paper and several other documents just to get the planes in the air. And as Ivac 2.0 still is some time away i thought it would be nice to have a tool i can use so i do not have to use a lot of other stuff.

And this is my early alfa and it works but there are still a lot of functions and debugging to do.

I have tried to contact the IVAO software team and logostics but so far i have heard nothing so i am doing some experiments with Navigraph data and some other data i got from the net.

 

The Specs so far is.

The software pulls the active nordic planes from the net  and create a strip window as the one above.

When you click on a strip it gives you a text in a other window with the clearence to read to the pilot.

At the moment you get callsign, airline, The airport and city. (i hate when i have to say "to your destination insteed of the place the pilot fly to), and the squawk.

I want to try to let the software figure out departure and QNH and so the clearence is complete.

If you push the airline icon in this window the activity as pushback or taxi will update on the flight strip.

Next here is when you push the strip again you get the next thing to read to the pilot so you always have some support for your memory and thats a good thing when you are a newbie.

I am not planning for the software to connect to Ivac as there is a totally new client coming. When its coming?

I thought this could be a nice project meanwhile.

Thye work continues.

  • Back in to Sansar. Today Bryn Oh.

    Visited An evening at the Ballet by Bryn Oh. Not easy to find something you like. Bryn Oh is one of my fav artists in SL and she do not dissapoint. Like several tableau with a strong feeling of being in the theatre. I liked it.

     

    Visited some other nice places but the feeling of being alone is creeping up on you. When i visited Astro Port there was a avatar just standing there and when in VR that is just scary.

  • The quality of things in Second life.

    Visited the beach today and i am amazed. The mesh quality of things in Second life. And done right it is not very hard on the graphics card. Reducing lag. If it is done right.

    I used my Oculus to inspect the nice work and it made it a very nice experience, blink, blink. ( Did you see that.)

    Now we only need a new viewer and some some new shaders to play around with.

  • Finally i can talk about Sansar.

    The thing we all have been looking for is finally out there. Linden labs Sansar. I have been checking it out for a while but now i can write about it and that is nice.

    And so is Sansar. Nice.I have a Oculus so i can check out the experiances all the way. And i still say Sansar is nice. The graphics good. The update is good. Will be great if you want to do a simple game. And i suppose people will create new tools you can use to make buildning easy. As a user of AltspaceVR, sinespace, High Fidelity and now Sansar i just ask my self "will anybody ever use these products?"

    It have a distinct feel of Blue Mars. You wait for the download and then come into a small space that look great and wonder why am i here? Is there any reason at all?

    There will be some cool games i guess. But if i want to play a really cool game i have Steam.

    At the moment i think it is a question about wait and see.

    PS/ When i get out of Sansar i go back to my ordinary life at the Hypergrid and Second life. It is more fun! /DS

     

  • First High Fidelity avatar.

    Well it is still a Beta. Wanted to look different and i do. So went thru the process of getting a new avatar and it worked all the way to The High Fidelity viewer and then something did not work out.

    But i have a new Avatar. Now to get the textures right.
