Hello, I am an amateur developer who knows Python and some C++. I spend a lot of my spare time poking around in the JSBSim source. One longer term project of mine is to translate the entire project into Python.
I am a proponent of schemas. I am writing schemas for XML PropertyList files and FDM property files. I am also looking for opportunities to leverage my computer's computing power for better graphics (I'm currently maxed out and getting 25-40 FPS).
I wish that in the future, FlightGear would switch to JSON as I am much more confident in JSON than XML.
I am also trying to improve the simulator by tweaking around shaders and materials and effects.
