Midair Crash - minor change maybe?

Post by UrosM » Fri Mar 29, 2019 10:03 pm

Low over ridge someone crashed to me. Some quite aggressive pilot, reported by others too to not complying basic rules of soaring.

Than ... Q ... oh shit, I'm outside ... F1 ... what's my attitude ... puff ... to late :evil:

I maybe had a chance with Q key, if view after crash would stay in the cockpit. Like it is now, right after crash, you're put into outside view, so had to press Q and then F1 and then had to reorientate ... just too much when only seconds from ground. High in the air, it's OK, you have enough time, but close to the ground - no way.

And I really can't find any good reason for changing the view after crash, other than you can enjoy watching a falling plane.

This couldn't be so much code to change to implement, I believe. In any of future updates, perhaps. Maybe? Please!!!! I know you have a lot to do. Just make it ready when its ready and you feel ready to make it ready :D

IMHO this is very low priority. Even if it is the other pilots fault, see and avoid still applies like it does in real life. If this would have happened in RL you wouldn't be posting this :roll:

You can use AHK to make a Q F1 sequence. Or do it in your programmable joystick.

Can't avoid if can't see :?

I know it is not high priority, but just disabling view change after collision will take only few minutes oh work. Just making suggestion. But with so much advocating Condor Team has here, I'm sure it would not happen :)

Use the Condor PDA as a FLARM unit... Zoom in and you will see gliders around you.

A FLARM unit would be a nice addition to the sim. It would certainly add another dimension of training to the simulation, that would be transferable to rl. (As is a good lookout)
Gravity never loses. The best you can hope for is a draw.

I've had the same happen to me before. No amount of lookout will help as the other pilot usually piles into you at speed approaching from above and behind. Last time it happened to me was on approach to land. Just how it is when there are kids out there using the sim too!

Code: Select all

Q::
Send q
Send {f1}
Return
Compile the above as an AutoHotkey script and it should do what you want when pressing Q.

All this is great, but when you have idiots intentionally trying to collide with you, it takes the fun out of multiplayer.

The server .admin can .kick and .ban pilots that do misbehave...
http://www.condorsoaring.com/Manual/
See appendix 2...

...although an .admin that doesn't see what is going on will not execute this very fast. It's best to studie IGC files and ban someone that is repeatedly misbehaving...

Wow. You can get multiplayer games?

Lucky!

You might be able to fly condor cafe "'Le cafe du matin" at 08:00 CEST. That would be 23:00 for you. A bit late, but maybe doable in weekends?
