    Will there be, or is there already support for digital MFDs rather than analog MFDs like in the image attached?

    Are there plans to add an auto-throttle system (perhaps layered on top of existing systems) ? I've read this is a common feature of helicopters and from a game perspective, also seems like an element of simplification for easier 'onboarding' of new players.

    EDIT: Sorry- I found the 'combine collective-throttle' option ! Thanks for thinking of this !!

    This looks great, I see you have a “Thermal” option in the UI, can’t wait to see it.

    so hard to work out what you get if you buy this asset. Do you have a complete list?

    Hello,

    You get the complete rotary wing simulator package with 3 sample helicopters and an experimental DJI drone

    I checked the docs but that still raises questions does it include things like support for electric engines?
    Where is the information about the addons for weapons mentioned in the asset store page? radar etc? AI?

    The DJI drone is powered by electric motors


    Battery


    ESC



    The radar system comes out of the box too



    Here's a link to the asset manual: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1q3Wihg7Zy9eUzOEcMFyO5hdJFlUU6ZtC/view
    every component included is listed with a description of the variables

    All that tree popping is hurting my eyes, would be great to see the effect on grass, even better to see in VR.
    keep up the great work

    I just love this asset. Tried it yesterday and worked like a charm out of the box.



    It actually makes me want to touch VR again. Inside a Helicopter, but also in the Hover Platform Test you showed above. Is that model available somewhere?

    Hi,
    I'm assessing assets for a prototype flight project and have some questions before purchase.

    I could not run the demo in the web browser as F1 opens help on chrome;-/

    You have a lot of helicopter models and other features (Flir, IR etc) that don't appear to be in the current package.
    What are your plans for these?
    Could you provide a product comparison chart that lists everything you have developed against what the current and possibly future packages will include.
    If you could also do this for your fixed wing package and other assets that would be much appreciated as well. ty!

    I need this for feature planning and it would be very helpful, as it's just confusing at the moment. Your work looks brilliant, but hard to sort out where it's going product wise, which is important if you are relying on it as a key element of your own product.

    Thanks!

    Hello

    The recommended browser is Mozilla Firefox, it's just better for running HTML files.
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1c__tIrC-uxdEnTi6tT6vutvHN1VX7yFt/view

    The helicopter and aircraft models in videos are just "literal demonstrators" of what can be done with the system. Most of the models are from custom or private projects but the systems and components they demonstrate are all available in the core package.

    For example, the MH-60 is from a private project I'm currently working on and the developed components like the pressable buttons will be integrated into the main asset


    The Thermal Imaging system is a set of post-processing effects from this asset: https://assetstore.unity.com/packag...camera-effects/tnv-thermal-night-vision-96249
    and scripts needed to make it work with the system (Color Switcher) will be included in the next update.
    The MFD Display components are already included in the asset.

    The same thing goes for the Fixed Wing, the control stiffening system (https://forum.unity.com/threads/released-silantro-flight-simulator.522642/page-18#post-5736574) came up in the J-20 project and I've already integrated the changes to the package which will be available in the next update.

    Some of the major things coming to each system in their next updates include;

    1. Rotary Wing;
    a. Improved collision analysis for the blades.
    b. Set of new MFD Components like the read-out displays for the Speedometer and Altimeter
    c. Altitude control system to maintain and position the helicopter at a specific altitude even during manoeuvres (
    )
    d. Addition of the complex mode to the transmission system to accommodate compound helicopter e.g S-97

    2. Fixed Wing;
    a. Control stiffening system
    b. Improved airfoil analysis
    c. Introduction of the dynamic coefficient system
    d. Actuator system to handle Animated gears and engine nozzles.

    Let me know if you have any other questions or just mail me :)

    Thanks for the info.

    A package deal combining both flight assets?
    Do you have a rough timeline of next releases outlined above?
