Those of you using Windows 7 can customize its desktop by using my Navy theme pack. Download it from the sidebar and save to a place of your choice, then double-click and it's done.
This pack is optimized for 1920x1080 resolution.
EDIT. I've added more background images, now it totals 31. Please re-download the pack.
Finally my work on this beta is done... It's a major update, with a number of new features and with some minor tweaks and bugfixes... What's new?
A rollback option (after a successful trap)
A NATOPS option (to follow CQ/FCLP requirements)
Tracking pilot's currency
A new logbook file format
Export and import of logbook records in various formats (XML, CSV, LXF)
New LSO comments - TWA, TCA, LIG
New LSO grade - WOP
Colored CQ/FCLP logbook records
Color icons for different CASE approaches
New LSO voice calls
Don't worry about the new logbook format - the program will automatically convert your logbook to the new format, the LDF, provided the logbook was created by vLSO of the 0.7 series. The original DAT file will be renamed to Logbook.old.
Also, I'd suggest to move (not just copy) the Sound folder to a safe place and replace it with a new one from the package.
Well... Download, unzip and have a good weekend flying with the new program! )))
Ok guys, this time I'd like to show you my latest changes to the GUI.
Honestly, I was never happy with that cluttered 'Date, CASE' column and finally I decided to move all CASE info into a separate column and switch to graphical CASE presentation. I believe, that graphic form is far better and easier to read, than the old text one. A 'blue sky with a number' represents Day CASE approach, a 'dark sky with a moon' represents Night approach respectively:
Perhaps the only thing to discuss here is those icons ;-) And I'm open for that...
Guys from the FSDT forums are suggesting a more consistent form of CASE presentation. Got rid of graphic, only numbers now, also added different backgrounds for all possible CASE day approaches (the more severe the conditions the darker background):
Also, note that another new column has been added to the Stat board - currency of a pilot . This one shows all the necessary information concerning pilot's qualification and practice state and follows (in general) LSO NATOPS. This feature is under your control and if you are a casual pilot and all you want to do is fly a couple of passes around the boat, just turn it off.
And finally, two new buttons appeared below the Stat board - the Export and Import buttons - in place of that dummy Greenieboard button, hanging there for a long, long time... The two corresponding functions will allow pilots to exchange their logbooks with each other, as well as with their CO/LSO (or other person in charge with their squadron's greenieboard).
