Development status/Issues/Todo

Outside:

  • aircraft is textured but hull could need a material texture (maybe we need multi texturing for that)
    • possible in due course
  • engine turbine does not rotate or is not visible
    • only just visible from certain angles in real life
  • low priority for implemenatation
  • probably not worth the vertex count
  • nozzle do not change shape when changing thrust
    • it doesn't

3D Cockpit:

  • no elevator trim control available
    • controlled by the tophat on the control column in real life
  • use the keyboard or joystick
  • cockpit is not textured
    • unlikely to be changed
  • pilot is not textured
    • too difficult right now
      • done

General:

  • engine sound in cockpit does not differ from outside engine sound
    • later
  • engines can't be turned off
    • YASim doesn't model this
    • needs an improved fuel system to be modelled
  • no hud available
    • no HUD in real life - disabled in model
  • flightgear crashes when using hunter-2tanks alias
    • it doesn't here. If it does for you please file a full bug report.
