Re: Tyrant's Virtual Missions Tools Q&A

OK, this time for real! v058-19 now available on the dev channel. http://org.craigandera.vmt.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com/dev/ This is another beta release, but I fixed a bunch of bugs, including a few nasty ones I found when testing out the fixes for the last batch. I also added the ability t...

Re: Tyrant's Virtual Missions Tools Q&A

I'm going to leave this version posted so people can still look at the features and (if so inclined) find bugs in VMT itself. Just don't save the weather and try to fly a mission with it.

Re: Tyrant's Virtual Missions Tools Q&A

Unfortunately, I just found a bad bug in this version. Using the generated weather can crash BMS. I'll get it fixed. Hopefully no one is affected. This is what beta is for, though! :)

Update: just found a bad bug in this version. Do not use - can crash BMS when loading the generated weather. OK, I believe VMT is now at beta status. This means that everything's done but there are still a couple minor bugs that I know about and I expect to find more. As always, you can download th...

Work still progressing. Cloud cover and towering cumulus implemented. The little "hats" on the circles indicate towering cumulus.

Re: Tyrant's Virtual Missions Tools Q&A

Yep. The post makes it clear that's the direction it's heading. And I understand the tradeoffs BMS has to make. But in general VMT lets you enter crazy params...it just warns you about it. So I'll keep with that pattern.

Re: Tyrant's Virtual Missions Tools Q&A

Ah, thanks.

I don't think I'll prevent people from putting in a lower number. One hour is very coarse given that the cells are 9nm square. Weather moving at 25kts (not an unusual speed) will cross more than two cells in that time. But I'll probably put in a warning about it, and default to one hour.

Weather map creation should be limited to 1 hour intervals minimum. ;)
Oh? Is that new? I used 15 minutes to avoid big discontinuities for many many missions in 4.33.

Re: Tyrant's Virtual Missions Tools Q&A

I am still working on this every chance I get. It has turned out to be rather a large job. At a guess I'm 30 or 40 hours in. I'd say I'm something like two-thirds done. But I have moved on to updating the weather, which as you know got significantly more sophisticated in BMS in 4.34. I don't have a ...

Re: Tyrant's Virtual Missions Tools Q&A

Am currently uploading v058-10, another alpha. This one fixes a pretty bad bug where not all active teams were being shown. Recommend immediate upgrade from previous alphas.

WEATHER IS STILL BROKEN. ;)

Re: Tyrant's Virtual Missions Tools Q&A

What I can see (may be I am wrong), but weather seems to be different: Yes, sorry if that wasn't clear: Weather is completely and totally broken in this release. :) The weather model has changed a LOT in 4.34 - it's way better now, but because I generate weather the VMT model has to get more comple...

Alpha release: 4.34 support

OK, I think I've worked through most of the issues and am happy to announce an ALPHA release of VMT supporting BMS 4.34. As you are probably aware, "alpha" is code for "Please test my broken software for me" :) So, yes, I absolutely expect there to be bugs in this, although the only thing I'm aware ...
