Default New Orbiter Beta Released (r.61 aka RC.4, 16 Aug 2016)

Change log:
  1. DG: control dialog (Ctrl-Space) now syncs with control status [ issue # 1263 ]. Added airbrake and cockpit light controls
  2. Bug fix: vessels can now be created during VESSEL::clbkPostStep (writing initial state to update state) [in response to this issue ]
  3. Various fixes to MSI installer script
  4. Inline graphics client: no longer clips particle streams
  5. Vessel config files: Added tag "ClipRadius"
  6. ISS: clip radius adjusted to avoid clipping solar panels
  7. Updated Manual and Credits
  8. Updated config files for Jovian satellites to reference new textures
No new OVP commit. The current D3D9 beta client should still work.

This commit has been designated as RC.4.

Note that the old textures for the Jovian moons have been removed from SVN. You will have to download the RC.4 zip file to get the new ones.

Default Moon crater glith

Hello,

I've just updated my orbiter beta from the SVN repo. I assume that the differences between RC version and the release are cosmetic minimal.

I've lanunched the orb, entered low moon orbit to check if there are the glithes mentioned by me approx a year ago. And here it is : (

The front edge of the crater is transparent.

Default New Orbiter SVN commit (r.62, aka Orbiter 2016, Aug 30 2016)

This commit brings the SVN repository up to date to Orbiter release 2016.

Change log:
  1. Bug fix: ZTreeManager: memory leak
  2. Bug fix: Vessel: global speed computation in InitLanded did not take into account surface elevation (resulting in spurious nonzero airspeed reading). Should fix this issue.
  3. Modified VESSEL::SetAttitudeRotLevel to better deal with thrusters registered with multiple attitude groups [issue #1157]
  4. Cleaned up code for setting HUD colour / HUD intensity to increase chance of fixing [issue #1236]
  5. Map MFD: now accepts OTARGET or BTARGET scenario tags for backward compatibility (preference is TARGET > OTARGET > BTARGET). Should fix this problem.
  6. Reduced minimum nearplane limit for internal views from 2.5m to 1m (in external views it is still 2.5m). Should fix this problem.
  7. ShuttlePB: Now defines convex hull for collision interface
  8. ShuttleA: overhead panel now fully functional again
  9. Bug fix: prevent vessels from going idle during touchdown point modification at ground contact
  10. Bug fix: pad auto-refuel is now working again. Should fix this problem.
  11. Atlantis: Zero RCS levels on deactivating the ascent autopilot [issue #1238].
  12. Atlantis: Enable attachment jettison with J. Enable MMU with E. Should fix this problem.
  13. API: Force thruster level 0 on propellant disconnect.
  14. Bug fix: DG: landing/docking lights not switched on at scenario start

There is also a recent OVP commit that fixes point 1 in the D3D7 client.

Could you please give the coordinates of that crater? Also could you point me to your report a year ago? I couldn't find it. Thanks!

Default Moon crater glith

Thank you for reply : )

Actually this glith appears in every crater if you want to view it from low angle (like from very low (about 2-4 km) orbit around the moon), additionally Ive just now updated all files form SVN (to make sure the ghith was not fixed in RC or release version). The craters are located next to brighton beach -> but it really doesnt matter becouse every crater is affected. The photos were made by zooming out from parked SH-01 at the pad on brighton.

Over a year ago I mentioned about something else -> the atmospheric haze "gap" during ascent form hellas plantita on mars (terrain below "sea level" on mars) 3rd photo (as we can see this also appears in the newest version). I wanted to report about the crater issue but i was waiting for reply about the martian haze and Ive forgoten about the craters.

One thing I want to thank you is to fixing pressure measurement from places below martian "sea level". Now there is over 1kPa at the bottom of hellas plantita (this was fixed by you after my first post where I noticed that at the bottom of hellas plantita the pressure was around ~600 Pa (like at the mars median level) -> the second post was about atmospheric haze)

Thank you for paying attention on this ( :

I don't seem to be able to reproduce your problem.

Since you didn't give a position or scenario I can't really try to match your images exactly, so here is another image with a few craters, plus the scenario to reproduce it. Do you get a different result? How long ago did you download the Moon textures?

Regarding the Mars image, again, after a quick check I can't reproduce it, so it would really help if you could provide a scenario so I can see if the same problem is present here or not.

Edit: ok, I can reproduce the atmosphere gap on Mars. Should be fixable.

Ive used your scenario to create my view. On your image there arent any issues - on my there are. Maybe this is texture or elevation issue or graphic card settings.

Ive got moon textures from here (from 1st Jan 2015) http://mirror.orbiter-radio.co.uk/or...sets/moon.html



Edit: Ive tried to disable every visual effect except surface elevation (without success), tried also RGB emulation instad of using graphic card (without success)

Edit: I know what is the reason -> Please notice that you are launched orbiter in window mode (I also tried and I noticet that there arent any glithes). Please try to launch orbiter full screen to reproduce the issue.

Please try this scenario where the issue appearance is obvious. Please notice that the mountains on the horizon are also affected (some of the cliffs are transparent on one side)

Fullscreen

Are you using a 32-bit framebuffer mode in fullscreen? 16-bit z-buffers are simply not sufficient for the dynamic ranges we need to cover. Unless you are really restricted by your graphics hardware, there shouldn't be a performance reason these days to use 16-bit modes.

If that isn't it, then getting different results for window and fullscreen modes points to a driver issue.

Actually -> I changed colour depth to 32 bit in fullscreen mode and it worked for me : )
Maybe switching colour depth also affects resolution of z-buffer ?

I have gtx970m so we can easily exclude hw limitation.

Thank you : )

Default New Orbiter SVN commit (r.63, Sep 3 2016)

Change log:
  1. Bug fix: VESSEL::GetStatus and VESSEL::GetStatusEx now respect the modified meaning of the arot and vrot vessel parameters for landed vessels (arot: rotation angles relative to planet frame, vrot.x: vessel CoG altitude above elevated ground). Should fix this problem.
  2. Bug fix: Log error message DDERR_BLTFASTCANTCLIP resolved. Should fix this problem.
  3. D3D7client::clbkBlt now tries Blt if BltFast fails
  4. Atlantis: AscentAP: turn off RCS thrusters on AP disengage [issue #1238]
  5. Bug fix: config texture dir now respected by new-style planetary texture and elevation maps. Addresses this problem, although the HTexDir value is still not being used.
  6. API: New flag recognised by oapiGetObjectParam: OBJPRM_PLANET_MINELEVATION (exposes new MinElevation config tag)
  7. Bug fix: visual artefact with rendered horizon haze on Mars (lower edge visible from hellas plantita). Should fix this problem.
  8. Bug fix: DG: Command dialog (Ctrl-Space) not working correctly [issue #1266]

There is also a new OVP commit (r. 55) to go with this. Will require graphics client recompile, and probably some edits to incorporate points 6 and 7.

Thanks. Fixed it for me, as I can now re-use texture dirs without resorting to soft-links by means of setting the "TextureDir" property in the master configuration file.

sorry, shall we commit to the repository or is the official link/mirror updated?

[edit]

I guess it's svn, sorry for if the question was stupid

Er, no. You should update (or checkout if you haven't done so before) from the repository. It is not recommended to check out into an existing Orbiter 2016 installation directory. But you can reuse the textures from your Orbiter 2016 installation, by modifying the TextureDir entry in Orbiter.cfg/Orbiter_ng.cfg. (what Face is talking about above).
See http://orbit.medphys.ucl.ac.uk/betainstall.html for details.

Not yet. It will be a while before the first patch is released.

What if two textures folders exist. One in the original and one, for example in the SVN folder or test folder?

I have the textures in my original Orbiter folder, i have also a copy of Orbiter for testing, without textures but linked with TextureDir=...\Textures\.
In that testing folder i installed these Addons

ISS_A2Z_v3
ISS_v3.2_07.09.10
VinkaSpacecraft4Pack

In my test folder is now another textures folder with the textures for ISS.
Planetary textures works ok but not the textures of ISS.
Does Orbiter ignore the textures im my testing folder?

I think that's logical, because you've redirected the textures folder to your original install, where you did not install the ISS textures.
