Very nice to hear

 

Ole...... nice :megalol:

 

If i may suggest you asking or contact our ATC / AWC =RvE=Sabre.

He has 25 years experience as ATC US Cleveland and he is our man on the Coms using your first Tool. We love it and we use it in a serious environment.

I am sure he can help you pretty good.....or even JaboG32 Woody....he also might be a good person to ask.

We actually use our own tool. But as our progger (Zillion) isn't into that business anymore I like to add some points I would have asked him to put into our tool:

 

The tool has great potencial to be used not only for ATC operations. For a multiplayer GCI/FAC some filter-options would be nice (password for each blue and red side; choice of available radar stations on each side).

 

Thats what's in my mind so far.

Wish: Stabilty, stabilty and... again stability :), because there were problems, which led to crash of Lockon server, when LOTATC v1 was running on the same computer.

 

now, seriously (comparing to v1):

1. Abilty to work with meinit.xml in non-western (e.g. cyrillic) encoding

2. Datalink russian fighters -> ATC, e.g. fighter with working radar is a source of data, which can be seen on ATC screen.

Slt, will you please tell those who never heard of what this is going to be?

I don't use meinit.xml. LOTATC v2 will be available in many languages. ;)

I can't use fighter's radar as source of data. :cry:

Sources are (of the same coalition):

  • SAM (can be kill)
  • AWACS (can be kill)
  • RADAR of airports

Solved issues

  • Freezes in LOTATC 1.0 (no refresh)
  • Windows start menu masking
  • Freezes with big missions

New features

  • Communication
    • Optimized bandwidth (compression)
    • New role: Mission Commander, can give orders and manage controllers (more informations soon)

    [*]Physics

    • More realistic radars (RCS, RADAR diagram, AOT, ...)

    [*]GUI

    • More space for the radar screen
    • Better interaction with TeamSpeak (Players list, switch buttons, ...)
    • Move and zoom faster
    • New menues
    • Multi-layers screen (can automatically create a layer with Player's flight plan above the radar screen, you can create a XML zone file and display it above the radar screen. You can also make a layer for important position, etc etc. more informations soon)

A zone file is a file that contains a list of Positions like this:

<Zone Name="DangerZone">

<Point Latitude="45.866778" Longitude="36.4544" />

<Point Latitude="45.66554" Longitude="36.3232" />

<Point Latitude="45.23233" Longitude="36.4334" />

</Zone>

You can share the zone files via LOTATC between controllers.

Yes of course.

The mission commander of each coalition can rename each planes. Friend have a name (like 159th_Jojo) and ennemy have an Id (8 numbers). Next the MC have rename a contact, all controllers of his coalition will view the contact with its new name. A controller can rename a contact for him.

Doug, can you add 3-minute intercept vectors, and an intercept calculator?

 

ie. I choose friendly, and then enemy, and it tells me the best angle of intercept based on current speed/heading of enemy and friendly.

Systems I've seen will allow a choice of intercept option - head on, flank attack, rear attack. If you want to think about adding more features in the future you might consider something like that.

 

Another feature is Defended Areas. You define an area of the map, and the system alerts the controller when the area is threatened based on the bandit's current speed, direction of flight, distance from the area.

Ok so:

  • 3-minute intercept vectors
  • Intercept calculator
    • head on
    • flank attack
    • rear attack

Another feature is Defended Areas. You define an area of the map, and the system alerts the controller when the area is threatened based on the bandit's current speed, direction of flight, distance from the area.

Good idea. I can use text-to-spreech to make a voice woh alerts you. I will try it.

I'm currently working on the second version of LOTATC. If you have some idea or wishlist, please give it to me. :thumbup:
