Does the membership for condor-club also speed up the Condor Updater?
Yes. I often get 5 to 6 MiB/s instead of only 250 KiB/S. And downloads start immediately as premium slots have priority. Most landscapes take about 10 - 15 min to download.

Re: How does CC calculate results?

Also if you have less then 2/3 of the handicapped speed of the winner you will only get distance points.

And the scores change with each upload because of the day factor.... It is all very complicated :lol:

Hi wickid. Using XCsoar in VR seems to be daunting, might try it in the future.

Regarding to better PDA map. Are you talking about those .bmp files on condor.club?

Re: newbee help with Roadwork sign

It is a warning that your framerate is dropping below 15 frames per second.

If you press SHIFT-D you can see your actual framerate in the top left corner of the screen.

Re: Dynamic Soaring possible?

There is a venturi effect simulated in Condor as well. So bowls and narrow canyons do have wind gradients that enhance lift. If it is enough to do dynamic soaring, I don't know

Re: Better PDA map

You can change the map. There are alternatives for most sceneries on Condor.club. The resolution can not be changed. Maybe an external PDA with XCSoar is something for you? There is a step by step guide in the manual.

Re: JS3 is released

Thanks for all the useful info Wickid. I appreciate why Condor devs have chosen to do it the way they have, however if I've read correctly it still means gliders in Condor are not capable of the performance they are in RL. I understand however why you have chosen to do this and it comes back to how...

Re: JS3 is released

It is a shame we lose performance the glider has to offer still. Wickid, is this due to the way Condor is coded / programmed? I take there is no way to have a non linear change to VNE vs altitude so that the VNE chart could be achieved as in RL? Condor simulates a real density gradient in the atmos...

Yet another VNE discussion, split from the JS3 thread

So is the Condor model wrong for the JS3? I too cannot achieve the speeds on the ASI as stipulated on the VNE chart It's not just the JS3, but all gliders in Condor. The VNE speed is fairly correct for sea level (minus safety margin real planes have), but real planes usually have the same speed up ...

Re: OSM Data in your scenery

There is a way to add copy protection to a scenery. Ask Cadfael for the details. Im not sure how to do it.

Re: Setting tree density in ".ini" file

I agree. It should be a "tree visibility distance" instead of "tree density" setting so they are the same for everyone when flying close.
