    That's what I planned to do, but when I tried to implement it with Silantro it didn't work. I did manage to get something to work with UnityFS a while ago, but there is no more contact with Chris.

    Hey @Oyedoyin1 -

    Are carrier landings and take offs possible with Silantro flight sim?

    Definitely. Its just a matter of adding the required forces to simulate the catapult push and pull effect.
    e.g

    Takeoff: Apply the catapult force the the forward direction ( either using Aircraft.AddForce or AddForceAtPosition using the front gear location as reference)

    Landing: Apply the catapult force as done with takeoff but in the opposite direction.

    PS: A much simpler component to do this will be added to one of the updates;)

    Are you planning the helicopter as add on to this kit or a separate unity asset all together?

    Looking great so far. Do you have any intention to add some kind of waypoint system for AI aircraft.

    I have some wonderful aircraft awaiting a good home :)

    How does tail draggers work in the sim, are you able to steer with only prop wash or can you add an invisible tailwheel.

    Honestly i've not decided yet. But its probably going to be a different asset with an integration link.

    Definitely. That will the part of the fully integrated Auto-pilot and VMC System.

    You can set up the rear wheel to be steerable, as i did for the old Spitfire demonstrator

    #UPDATE

    Enabling and Disabling aircraft system and controls now possible



    //
    If the Control type is set to "Internal", the Aircraft System is disabled on start and will be re-enabled once the pilot is on board. It will be disabled again as the pilot Exits.

    The Control type can be set to External if the Enter-Exit system is not required.

    Do you plan on integrating with Rewired so we can support more controllers [ Gamepads, Joysticks, HOTAS, flight yokes, rudder pedals, etc.]?

    You can find the full list of supported controllers here for reference. You have to scroll to get to the flight controllers section in the middle.

    http://guavaman.com/projects/rewired/docs/SupportedControllers.html

    If you are not familiar with Rewired you can find more details here:

    Actually any controller or joystick compatible with unity can be used with the asset in its current state.

    Its just a matter of configuring the Input Manager.

    Do you know when the asset will go back on the asset store? It looks really good! I also have a question as to how easy it is to add new aircraft?

    I've already re-submitted the correct packages, it should be cleared in the coming days.

    But you can contact me directly to get the asset now. Silantrosimulator@gmail.com

    Simply by creating a new aircraft from the gameObject menu and customizing its properties.


    Or creating the aircraft from scratch with tools from the menu if you're feeling adventurous ;)

    Thanks for the reply! Looks really easy which is awesome. Just say I had an aircraft model and wanted to adapt it to your asset, would I use the from scratch system that you have pointed out?

    I tried setting up my own aircraft using the basic way but it didn't really work? It would be great if you could upload a little tutorial showing it.

    I tried following the tutorial but my wheels for some reason (when in play-mode) go through the ground? It looks like they detach from the aircraft

    Woa, I'm sorry about that. It might be one of two things ;
    1. The wheel models are incorrectly setup from the 3D application
    2. The Z Axis is facing downwards

    Try and mail me the project folder if you can, lemme take a look at it.

    The problem is when your controller has more than 20 buttons then you are blocked by unity's input system. That was one of several reasons why Rewired came out in the first place to support controllers (e.g. HOTAS and other flight controllers) with more than 20 buttons on them. All of the good HOTAS controllers have more than 20 buttons on them. That is why I use Rewired because there is no other way support HOTAS reliably across Windows/Linux/MAC with the same functionality. Since Rewired has it own native input on Windows/Linux/MAC I do not have to worry about difference experience based on when Unity changes something.

    You will have the same problem with using some of the better helicopter controllers like Pro-Flight Trainer Puma helicopter controller (which also supported by Rewired). It has more than 20 buttons also.

    Yea that' true. My default instinct was to reduce and simplify the controls when i ran into that problem. But i'll definitely check it out and work out some kind of integration.:)

    I'm sorry about that, i had some issues with the update and unity advised i deprecate the asset and make a new submission.....Its been pending review for 3 days now :(:(.

    The good news tho is that i'm almost done with update 1.14 with a lot of new features.:)

    :) Glad to hear that it is an admin issues from the Unity side. You are doing a great job and the asset is a standard in my projects. In fact it replaced 3 others completley so it would have been a real showstopper if the asset would be gone. And great news that another update is comming.

    I´m also using Rewired with your asset. It works without any problems and has some more advantages then just the 20+X-button controllers. I.e. Rewired interacts very well with additional assets like uScript. That again makes it easier to take your asset a little further to something like a scifi setting I am working on right now.

    Exactly the same problem. Other simulation assets like Usim have Rewired integrations included also.

    You can get a free trial version of Rewired to see how it works too.

    http://guavaman.com/projects/rewired/trial.html

    Talk to the developer of Rewired and tell him what you plan on doing when it come integration.

    Agreed.

    I paid $39 for an asset and didn't even receive ONE update beyond the initial release without being forced to pay again? I understand paying for upgrades to major versions every once in a while, but please explain the reason for this. I've never seen an asset store developer charge for every single update. If I do not pay for the upgrade, will the version I purchased get updates? I am not very happy about this.

    Maybe it hasn't been updated yet:). As I can see there is the version 0.5 again.

    Here is an example of Rewired example for a POV HAT (Joystick/gamepad/HOTAS/keyboard) so you can get an idea of what is involved with a Rewired integration. It is straight forward ...

    I'm really sorry i created the confusion, here's the full story;

    The original version of the simulator (0.5) was supposed to be the beta or test version, but i opted against adding the "beta" name because i wasn't sure when i'll be done with the full release with all the intended features. That was why i named it "version 0.5" instead of "version 1.0" , where the beta will be continued as v0.5+ (stopping at v0.8) and the full version will continue as 1.0+,2.0+ e.t.c.

    The main discrepancy comes due to the difference between my development time and the 5 working days it takes for unity to review submitted assets. If it wasn't so, i would have released the initial beta version as version 0.1 and made 5 updates before reaching the version 0.5 i submitted. Also i would have released the initial Full version as v1.0 and made 2 updates before reaching the version 1.121 on the store now, infact I've made alot of changes to the initial version 1.12 that i deprecated from the store and i would have uploaded 2 more updates to the current version 1.14 i'm going to submit on Friday.

    So in reality anyone with the beta version should have received 5 updates before i released the Full version and people with the Full version should have received 4 updates already!!!, but if i had to wait for unity to review each of the updates my work will be significantly pegged down. This is why it looks as if i made a jump but actually it was a process and alot was going on in the background.

    I guess i could have avoided this by naming the initial release "Beta", but as my luck would have it i had a lot of time within the last five months to focus on the Full version which is done and is the "Pro" version on the store now.
    Also i've submitted a patch update to the initial version (v0.61) which would fix all the issues people reported with that release, added the keyboard input configuration menu, and renamed it "Beta" to avoid future confusions.

    Once again i'm really sorry.:)

    so the non-pro version is actually just the beta version? Does that mean that it won't get updated from now on? All future updates will be to the Pro version only? Effectively we shouldn't buy the non-pro version?

    Yes, the features and additions update will only be for the pro version, infact i'm about to package and submit update 1.14.
    So as a new user, its advisable you get the pro version straight or you can get the beta version and upgrade later ...you're free to choose.:)

    Do you have support for propellers that fold down? There are two types Im aware of, pylon mounted ones or nose mounted ones. As well as the ability of fold them graphically I would be hoping for it to affect the drag of the aircraft?

    You can fold the propellers with the hydraulics system, folding the propeller with the hydraulics will have an effect on the drag of the aircraft based on your configuration.
