[Released] Schleicher ASK-13 (glider)
« on: August 20, 2014, 10:08:23 am »

Wikipedia: The ASK 13 is a two-seater glider that was built by Alexander Schleicher. It was and still is widely used for ab-initio training of glider pilots.

In collaboration with Flight Gear, and with permission from bomber (Simon Morley), I'm porting this beautiful glider into Outerra Anteworld.
bomber (Simon Morley) is responsible for doing the flight dynamics, and Me the rest.

Cooool. Can we launch this from the bottom of the Airbus yet?

I'm more interested in when we might start to see Outerra wind, thermals, and etc.  ;D

Levi, if you split the right and left wings into 8 sections each, we can work on the wingflex code in the fdm and animation files.

Youre splitted them ? ... i thought that was made by an armature based deformation ...

Levi, try this

http://target4today.com/_posted_images_/2014-08/ask-13.zip
Thanks! That's another story now :D Working perfectly ;)

Btw, I think the dummy-engine can be reduced to this:
Code: [Select]
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<piston_engine name="dummy-engine">
</piston_engine>
It tested that, and all works fine. What do you think about it? :D

Right! I completely forgot about that ;D I'll try and see what can be done. I guess the ailerons will complicate the things a little...
But... 8 sections each? isn't that a bit too much? The wings on the A-380 are splitted in four sections each, and only three (the fourth one is connected to the fuselage) are rotating...

Youre splitted them ? ... i thought that was made by an armature based deformation ...
Yeah, on the A-380 the wings are splitted, but the rotations are based on two pivot points (one at the top, and one at the bottom of each section). This way, it's harder to notice the seams in between ;D

With armature based deformation, things would have been much easier and better looking...

That's a pretty nice idea! It would have been so cool if we could do that :)

The wing is already split up into 8 sections in the fdm,  so thought it'd be a good experiment to match this.

Alright then, I think I can do it :)

Are those the 8 sections we're talking about? Because only 7 will be movable ...


Or something like this? Eight sections movable now. The red one is static.

Didn't mention any blending problems at my play at the airbus (but i kinda worry, it might make some weird lightning or shadow blimps at cross-sections when close up or with reflections from the wing-surface at that place) - yes, animated stuff would be great, but true, that even i haven't got a handle of it yet - guess we will wait till OT gets a step more to completion (and the documentation) to play things that way.
