• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Hi Henrik,

The DCNS Hydroptere is almost ready. I still have one or two days of work to do before I send it to you. I still need to work on two textures map (the ship's hull and floats - I don't forget the French flag).
The boat is animated : it floats at rest and rises when it gains speed. For the sail, it is in the axis of the boat at rest and turns at 45° when it moves forward.

An idea, it must be possible to add a sailor man in yellow clothes behind the helm of the sailboats, it would be more real.

For the fireworks, I'll start as soon as the boat is finished

Finally I am back in Europe. Just in time for the Ocean Race arrival to my hometown Aarhus. All the IMOCAs and VOR65 racers are now include in GAIST and to day with the Beta of the Real Time version it was possible to follow the In-Port Race live in the simulator - here a very short clip from the event:


And some screenies...

We are still pending feedback from Fleetmon on how to continue, but the Beta works nicely :D

We are still stuck with our datasupplier Fleetmon after they were acquired by Kpler, we will however soon release a new version of the traditional version eg. with updated ship models; animated sail boats; and a bunch of new models - all the new ships presented since release of V3 6 months ago. We continue in touch with Fleetmon and hope we will find a solution. We do have some alternatives but nothing as "elegant" and simple as what we have developed with Fleetmon, which is a truely global coverage in one simple addon.

I shared the Beta with a friend who is working as an officer on a large cargo ship and a simulator fan to get his impressions on how close or far we are from something realistic. You can see the video he did here in his youtube channel:

Hello everyone,

The new video is online with real life GoPro footage!! I have a separate playlist regarding the Global AI ship traffic.

There is more coming up, this will be less focused on the AI traffic, so I won’t spam the forum here with all these videos. If you are interested I advise you to subscribe.

Happy flying!

Does it "fly"?

It's animated to lift a few metres above the sea when the speed is above 2 (mile/h) but I think that this is not take in account by the simu (an AI is'nt managed as a simobjets, perhaps).
I have try to use different values for this parameter in the sim.CFG:
[contact_points]
always_use_avg_surface=1 //always use the average surface elevation
1 or 0 make the same thing.

well, there's a twist...

View attachment 88571
Yes, but will it be All real ships models or Generic models (like FSX, 1 takers model, 1 ferry model, 1 container model, 2 cruise ship model)?

Same question goes to Accurate live traffic ;) (Generic fictional airlines or All Aircraft types + real airlines)


Beside that, I'm hyped for MSFS24
