flight path recorder ?
« on: February 09, 2019, 06:36:38 am »

Today by mistake I pressed CTRL +P  while inside the Mig29 and up came a window "flight path recorder". What exactly can we do with it ?

I remember using it to record the path of the camera flying around in a couple of shots for the release video on the Heinkel He-51.

Look closely at the first and last shots:

Ok seems to record camera ecef positions. When I press "record" indeed a list of ecef's are displayed but I loose control of the plane. Also outerra crashed when i tried to "save" the flightpath. ?? seems not operational  :(.  That's a pity as a list of recorded ecefs could probably be used to set up a pattern of AI airtraffic around an airport. Is there any way to save to a file information - such as positions - retrieved by the javascript of a vehicle or plane or boat ?

Somebody has any idea to which file these commands write to ? Didn't see any output when I place them in a vehicle javascript and try to write something into the (which?)  "log". Do i need to enable something specific in eng.cfg ?
When I set  loglevel = "debug" I in eng.cfg I get additional info in eng.log for instance on mouse presses , soundfile plays etc..but not any text that i tried to write with this.log_dbg or this.log_inf.

Code: [Select]
this.log_dbg("text" + data  );
this.log_inf("text"+ data   );

below are my eng.cfg settings

Those methods are old and probably directed to /dev/null
You could try $log("info: blah blah")
