Development update 30/06/2014:

It's been a while since the last update but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy! Since the last update I have been working on:
  • Animating the control surfaces
  • Working on the interior
  • Modeling new undercarriage
  • Animating interior instruments

Modeling the Cockpit Instruments:


Flaps down in-engine:


I hope to have you a little pre-alpha release some time this week so keep your eyes peeled for a small update.

Thanks,

Ali

Very nice work! Feisty as the Flight-simming community can be, its certainly showing some of the biggest visible interest in Outerra!

Hello all,

Just to keep you all posted, the project is still in development but it's been slow lately because of personal commitments and such but do not worry, it is still on the go!

Currently, I am working on the landing gear animations and getting the textures sorted.

No screenshots for now, but check back soon for more updates!

Thanks,
Ali

Development update 21/07/2014: Late Nights

Evening all!
I know there has been a lack of development lately, but this is because I'm in the process of moving to a whole different part of the country so I've been busy sorting that out.
The past few days, I've been attempting to tackle the landing gear animations. For those that don't know how it works, Outerra uses code like this for animations:

this.geom.rotate_joint_orig(landing_gear_nose_id, ((jsb['gear/gear-pos-norm']) * 4 / 1.7, {x:1,y:0,z:0});

And this was all fine and dandy, except one thing. The landing gear was starting inside the plane, and lowering when it should be raising.
My initial thoughts where that the input from 'gear/gear-pos-norm' must be the wrong way round so I looked for ways to change that from the JSBSim aircraft file but found nothing. After that I thought, cant I just mathematically reverse the animation? My brain just thought, make it negative? So I tried multiplying my -1 but of course that simply reversed the direction that the wheel lowered from. By this point it was getting near 3am, almost 2 hours since I'd found the issue. So I called it a night.
I woke the next day, sat in-front of the computer and within 10 minutes I had a solution, multiply by -1 and then add 1 to keep it positive.
So:
this.geom.rotate_joint_orig(landing_gear_nose_id, ((jsb['gear/gear-pos-norm']) * 4 / 1.7, {x:1,y:0,z:0});
Becomes:
this.geom.rotate_joint_orig(landing_gear_nose_id, ((jsb['gear/gear-pos-norm']) * -1 + 1) * 4 / 1.7, {x:1,y:0,z:0});

I know there's probably another few ways of fixing this issue, but that's how I solved it.

Anyway, enough of that, here's some pretty pictures:










As you can see, it's starting to look a lot better than that original screenshot!

Something I have been thinking over recently though, is that I am no texture artist. I can unwrap and slap something made in photoshop over the model but when it comes down to it, I don't have much of an idea when it comes to making it look real.
If anyone out there would be willing to help me, it would be hugely appreciated.

Thanks,

Ali

To inverse the rotation, you can simply write -1  instead of 1 here: {x:-1,y:0,z:0}
It's that simple  :)

I tried that, it rotated backwards rather than in reverse.

Ah, I think I understand you now. You want to reverse the animation, going from B to A instead from A to B, not the direction of rotation.

For that, I use to do the next:
Code: [Select]
geom.rotate_joint_orig(n_gear_door_r0, 1-(jsb['gear/gear-pos-norm']*1) , {x:0,y:-1,z:0});
Anyways, it's almost the same you did :D

Development update 27/07/2014: Animations

Afternoon all!
A short update today, I've been doing work on the interiors and animations lately and here's a short video showing progress:

Video:





The door opens as long as the speed is < 10, the throttles are at 0 and the flaps are up.

Thanks,
