Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Where do the repository live?

Where is the repository located? I have found one at https://sourceforge.net/p/fgms/src/ci/master/tree/, which seem to be the main place these days as the link at the end of the article currently is dead.

Working around fgms limitations until HLA has materialized a little more ...

WIP.png Work in progress
This article or section will be worked on in the upcoming hours or days.
See history for the latest developments.
Cquote1.png I had something similar to your JSON/Nasal client working a while ago for ship AIS, but didn't have the time to develop something more substantial.

Cquote1.png The current MP system probably isn't able to deal with this amount of "traffic" at the client-side - thus, it might make more sense to develop this as a server-side module, that can be run as part of the fgms process.


See this thread for some fgms-related pointers: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=13510&hilit=#p136501

Cquote1.png A combat sim, like T4T, will obviously require much more shared state than just weather/environmental stuff - I think, we have already provided a bunch of related pointers to customize fgms accordingly.

Cquote1.png the multiplayer protocol is severely limited already, there's simply a hard limit that can be reached pretty quickly, this also applies to fgms obviously. So, I have also always thought in terms of a separate "environment server" for such state.

Cquote1.png But a combat sim using FG such as T4T that aims to have an online presence will need a server for AI gun batteries, supply and demand convoys and many other things one of which will be synchronised clouds..


Hopefully someone might be interested in giving it a go..but it doesn't have to be the normal suspects.

Cquote1.png Like I mentioned previously, many of these requirements will be far easier dealt with once the ongoing DIS/HLA work is materializing a little more.


Anything related to the multiplayer system is likely to become obsolete then. I already sent you a number of pointers regarding this. The wiki contains lots of more info, too.

Personally, I am not too eager to work on the MP system for these very reasons, and I guess that applies to most other users knowing C++ and networking basics.

Cquote1.png once we have network access in Nasal (i.e. socket support) and possibly a dedicated server-side property tree, it wouldn't be all that complex to come up with a dedicated Nasal interpreter that may run as a "weather server" in a standalone fashion, and push out property updates to all connected clients, similar to the concept employed by Torsten's FGPanel code: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=15132&p=150341&hilit=#p150341


On the other hand, all of this is touching a number of areas that will be directly affected by the ongoing HLA work.

Cquote1.png Regarding HLA: Please, do feel free to continue working with fgms, I just said that you shouldn't be surprised if/when fgms will eventually be phased out. I also don't expect that to happen during the next 12-18 months, but I'm pretty sure that it will happen. There are more and more core developers aware of the HLA effort and what it is about. And more and more core developers are fully supportive of adopting HLA.

Cquote1.png Adding socket bindings to the Nasal interface would be quite simple, and it is well documented: Howto:Extend_Nasal

One would only need to use PLIB's socket wrappers and expose them via extension functions, or even objects - using Tom's new cppbind framework in simgear/nasal/cppbind.
