the only command line parameter FS accepts right now is a path to the directoy where it will run.

The pilot intended to fly the task, but failed, so min distance is OK.

If a pilot fails to take off and break the glider. What should be their status?
ABS: I think not. He was on takeoff.
DNF: I think not. He decided to take off and he took off a little (just a step).
DF: I think so. And he should score with minimum distance.

Those few points could be important.

The point of an open task is to let the pilots decide where to go, not restrict them to turnpoints.

I realize there may be situations where you need to restrict parts of the courseline to avoid airspace etc. But that is usually solved without using turnpoints.

Best regards,

I posted a ticket but no one seems interested in replying, thought I’d try here as well.
Currently, I’m trying to implement an online airspace checker. Due to the CIVL decision on baro altitude it would be advantageous to have the ability to check the this along side gps altitude. Hopefully using know surface elevations from the lat long position.
Does any one have a formula to calculate accurate baro altitude from an IGC ?

Is it possible someone here responsible for the coding of FS could be kind enough to share the script or formula that’s used to convert relative baro altitude recorded in the IGC file to baro alt referenced/converted to QNH ?

Kind Regards
Matt Rosser

coul anyone explain to me how to set up an Open distance task with 1,2,3,…,”n” turnpoint in FS Comp?
When choosing “open distance” in “Task type”, there is no option apart from choosing a heading.
Couldn’t I choose any number of turnpoints and the let the task open for the pilots to get as far as they could?
Thanks in advance.

I found a difference about start time detection between versions(1.3.1, 1.3.4)
When a pilot crosses both start cylinder and 1st pylon cylinder several times, old version FS judges the best start time, otherwise, new version FS judges the first start time.

FS release note says as below,
“fixed several bugs where crossings in and out of cylinders were incorrectly detected – these had been introduced in 1.3.1 and subsequent bug fix releases”
http://fs.fai.org/trac/wiki/Fs1.3.4

Would you explain about details of bugs and what is a right behavior.
If there is a document (ex, SC7_GAP) about this point of rules, it will be help for me.

thanks
akira
