In my recent , we now have the Auto-Min functionality, available as variables' adjustment setting.

If anybody is interested how the optimal velocities are found - it's thanks to an self invented (reinvented?) algorithm, based on the , or more precisely the , applied for Optimisation task (finding minimum), instead of finding roots, as for the case of raw bisection method.
My implementations of these methods are available below:...

AOSP Development - Read dem TLEs!

Posted 11-24-2013 at 02:03 AM by SolarLiner (SolarLiner's Blog)


I've been making some progress, some of you might know about my launcher that copies seasonal textures for you, and some knew that I worked with the library. It was kind of a testing program, I resolved a lot of bugs there (it was my first try at running it "properly"), so it was a great achievement to get it working just fine.
Though, you might ask why using AOSP just to get the description and the MJD of the scenario. I'll answer then "Why not?" and...

DIY Flightsims - Floor Unit with Center Joystick - Project Complete!

Updated 09-22-2013 at 12:38 PM by n122vu (Corrected wording in the first sentence)

The last coat of paint was allowed to dry overnight. This morning before I left for work I re-attached the rudder mounting boards and brought the entire unit back inside. Since getting home from work I've reattached the controls to their mounts, reconnected all the cables, and fired up the DCS A-10C for a quick flight.

All-in-all, I'm very well pleased with the way this project turned out. And I'm surprised at how easily it came together considering my previous lack of skills...

More progress this evening. The second coat of paint has been applied to frame, joystick mount, and throttle mount, as well as to the rudder pedals. I'm no Michelangelo, but I'm pleased with how it has turned out. I will probably bring it back out at some point and do a little sanding/touch up work in some spots, but I'm ready to get this wrapped up and get flying. The DCS A-10C is calling my name...

Once the paint dries, I'll need to re-attach the rudder mount boards, bring...

DIY Flightsims - Floor Unit with Center Joystick - Progress Update 2

Posted 09-17-2013 at 10:57 PM by n122vu

Painting Day! The mounting boards for the rudders have been removed and labeled. The first coat of paint has been applied and is drying as I type.

Next step - once this coat dries, flip the unit up on its 'back' and paint the bottom. After that dries, back down on its base and apply the second coat.

Quick pic of the first coat (Apologies for blurriness. Tired, and the iPhone 4S has one of the worst phone cameras I've ever used).
