This is a quick summary of who I am, what I'm currently working on, and what's on my todo list.

Who am I?

See this interview: http://www.flightgear.org/contributors/stuart-buchanan/

What do I do?

I have various FlightGear interests/responsibilities:

  • One of the maintainers of the official manual
  • Moderator of the FlightGear Forums.
  • Sometimes editor of the FG Newsletter
  • Creator of the Vulcan B2, Flash 2 Alpha, Pitts S1C.
  • Maintainer of the a4f, c172p
  • Developed various graphics - trees, clouds and random buildings.
  • Write release notes, and sometimes "policy statement" (e.g. FPS, GPL)
  • General interest in improving usability (joystick config, various UI improvements)

TODO List

This list is probably out of date, but currently (21/9/2012) I've got the following on my list:

  • Airport Select dialog - in particular providing a neat airport map
  • Making 3D clouds less random to allow use in multi-computer setups
  • Improving trees by integrating multisampling technique as suggested on the Forum.
  • Integrating the various shaders (atmospheric, rembrandt) so we have a wholly consistent system for 3.0.0


I also fly a P&M Quik GT450 aircraft in real life.
