Dear Brian hi !

All is good, just too much work 🙂

We are releasing another update probably today, with focus on links and urls and copy/paste:

- Search something in google maps/earth, copy (CTRL-C), paste (CTRL-V) in FS and you are there. I have enjoyed this immensely !

- Clickable position links in our web browsers. For example THIS LINK will take you to Acropolis in Athens. Of course you need the update first.

- Copy from FS (CTRL-C) will keep the position as a shortcut in a windows folder. Double clicking it will take you wherever the CRTL-C was pressed. You can also paste the text/link in any post, description etc for sharing. The clipboard will have something like this :

fspg://position/?lat=37.9713287667541&lon=23.7262538252219&alt=687.272747895948&spd=74&hdg=337

You can copy the above text and paste it in FS and it will take you there. Now Youtube videos can have FS position references.

- Track files are also associated with fspg. Double clicking on one will load it in fspg.

We hope to release today. There are so many things in the pipeline and only 24 hours in a day 🙂

We do not send the news e-mail on every update as to not spam people. Make sure you have the auto-update on.

My best regards

George

OK George, didn't see anything on the forum for a couple of weeks and just worried if you guys were ok what with all the covid etc around.

The update sound really great BTW, looking forward to it.

Brian

I expected an update in great tension.
Today I look in the emails ... IT IS !!
I read and read and I don't believe my eyes.

Sorry gentlemen, but have you been working on the links so long?
Honestly, I don't need it at all.
I was hoping that you would finally deal with the fluency of repetitions so that there would be no micro cuts or larger ones.
So that you do not have to do so much to get a fair amount of liquid replay.
I waited for the fact that I would finally be able to watch the engine start from a cold on a replay.
None of this was included in the update.
But I got some more additional functions, momo that the main one does not work as it should.

After the purchase, I was delighted with this accessory, but after a few hours of setting and combining I gave up.
The add-on is not suitable for shooting movies from flights, there is too much jamming, no smoothness.
Please focus on real, needed updates, not creating a harvester for anything and everything ...

Dear Marek Hi !

How nice to see your post !

I though you would love the links. But hey, you know how the saying goes, you cannot please all the people all the time.

A couple of things :

- Any micro stutters are from fs and your PC. Check it out with no replay. Moving the camera or spectating from outside makes it obvious. I am saying this because UNFORTUNATELY there is not much more we can do to make the replay function smoother. Which by the way, is really smooth on our test PCs if you set it up properly.

- The engine startup is on our todo list.

- There is no "main" function of fs playground.The purpose of the program is this :

Have fun with flight simulator.

That means discover various places, save them and share them, return easy to them, fly about and replay your flight. Also search for bad weather and teleport there. The "Video" tab allowing to capture image sequences, is the best way to export professional quality video (if someone knows what he is doing and devotes the time). Landing rating system makes also for extra fun. Force feedback is a niche feature so I will not talk about it. 

These were the design goals and philosophy from the very beginning. Nothing changed or added. They are all worked on, one at a time.

And lastly :

You probably know what they say about opinions. Everybody has one. Clint Eastwood said it even better but I am a polite guy 🙂

Best regards
