beta 0.7.1.2 WIP

Ok guys,
Here's my quick WIP report. Thanks to Goonie, who gave me a heads up, there will be some new features in the upcoming beta:
1. A 'Clara' option.
Read this post and watch the attached video. Cool! In FSX you can also find yourself in trouble where you can't see the ball, either in heavy fog or being 'sun blinded'...
See the pictures - can you call the ball? ;-)

So, in situations like these you will be able to call 'Clara' (as in real life) and vLSO will try to talk you down to the wires. Some necessary changes to the interface are being applied:



2. Changing audio samples after each successful landing.
Currently the program randomly selects LSO audio samples upon its startup and then plays them until you exit. With the new version you will hear different LSO voices each time you trap.

Other features in my to do list are:
  • Aircraft rollback after landing on the deck (as in real life)
  • Random waveoffs during FCLP and carrier practice (as in real life)
  • Logbook export to a separate Greenieboard program.
That's all. folks! :)))

  3. Have a great idea to further improve next version......compile all carrier ATC chatter into a file. File will play a continous carrier ATC chatter the moment your within VLSO parameters. So as you are approaching carrier airspace, Marshall comes on tthen carrier ATC chatter until you land......what do you think?

  4. Looking good, however this would require to rework the whole vLSO sound system. I will think about it... ;-)

  5. This is one of the best addons for FSX! I only have one concern: I often get last moment waveoffs, already above the deck. I have no chance to retract the hook or add power, and the "C" marks are ruining my reputation on the boat :)
