    Ground Radar plugin 1.3 GDI leak

    Version 1.3.1 is now available with a fix to this issue. It did not do anything strange when testing with a log playback, was able to display all the maps in both the default and the modified map files without crashing, and did not leak objects no matter how much I zoomed and panned the screen, so I deemed it stable enough for release.

    Ground Radar plugin 1.3 GDI leak

    This is a GDI object leak in the code dealing with font property changes, affecting both the stable and beta builds. The rate at which the leak happens depends on the number of these changes in the currently activated maps, and the number of times the map is redrawn (when zooming/panning for regular maps, every screen refresh for APP window maps in the beta build). One object is leaked with every change, and eventually a limit is reached where funky stuff starts happening as can be seen in the video. Short term fix: - Do not keep any maps containing text activated, or edit the maps f

    Bug Areas Definition (TopSkyAreas.txt)

    That sounds like the area drawing code has trouble figuring out what color to use for the borders, in which case it falls back on Color_Active_Map for unfilled and Color_Active_RD_Map for filled areas. Whatever is causing that should be easy enough to fix.

Since this event attracts a fair amount of pilots we highly recommend you to bring a lot of holding fuel.

    Ground Radar plugin 1.3 GDI leak

    @Juha Holopainen A weird bug with the same modified maps file as in the bug I reported for the beta version (I suspect this is what caused it). Had this happen to me and my student during sweatbox (we are both on stable). Video of the issue attached. 2020-11-22_19-46-53.mp4 GRpluginMaps.txt

    Bug Areas Definition (TopSkyAreas.txt)

    Hi Juha, when defining an area in TopSkyAreas.txt (without Categorydef), I should, from my understanding be able, to color them differently by defining them with AREA:<number corresponding to an Active_Map_Type_X>[<F if filled>]:<Name> So for example: AREA:1:TEST should give me a TSA with a border color corresponding to Active_Map_Type_1 and no filling, whereas AREA:3F:TEST should give me a TSA with a border color corresponding to Acitve_Map_Type_3 and with filling. Currently, the file behaves as follows: Any number without F gives me a non-filled

    HDG line refresh rate

    Better - possibly. Smooth - probably not. I tested forcing screen updates at some point and didn't think the hugely increased CPU load was worth the smoothness. Try it out by dragging something on the screen for some time, it eats up all the resources. I'll probably revisit the issue at some point and try the effect of forcing a screen refresh at given intervals instead of continuously.

    It appears the beta code doesn't like FONTSTYLE lines, I'll fix that for the next update.

    HDG line refresh rate

    After reading the "know issues" section here: https://github.com/ronyan/VATCANSitu It made me think if it would be possible to add implement a function for better refresh rate when assigning HDGs on TopSky?

    @Juha HolopainenGRpluginMaps.txt This modified maps file causes the beta to CTD immediately when any EFHK TEXT items are selected. File works perfectly in the stable version. (file modified by Otto Tuhkunen)

    Hi, it's possible in the future. It's not going to make it into 2.3.1 but perhaps the next version after that.

    maybe draggable width of the list?

    Ah!! Thanks!!

    maybe draggable width of the list?

    FYI, the real TopSky has a Limit of 6 Chars for the TSA-Name. The "Name" field is used for an abbreviation while the correct "long" name is entered as Map Text.

    TopSkyMaps.txt dataprep Request

    Hi Juha, I love the feature of automatically active maps depending on certain conditions. We have one issue with it though and it would be amazing if you could implement a small(?) change to how maps are handled: As a little bit of background - LOWW can use RWY 11 and RWY16 parallel and independently (under certain conditions, but thats not the point here) and I would love to display one of three different maps, depending on what the config is: Map 1 for 11 only. Map 2 for 16 only. Map 3 for 11 / 16. Currently that is not possible since if I have both RWYs (11 / 16) active in

    [VACANT POSITION] Director of VATSIM Scandinavia - ACCSCA1

    Also I made a copy of this announcement to give everyone the opportunity to ask questions and/or discuss. I belive in an open-door policy. No matter what your "title" is!

    [VACANT POSITION] Director of VATSIM Scandinavia - ACCSCA1

    ust a reminder about this. The vote will be earlier then usual in 2021 to get the transition period running smoother then some unnamed countries For those who are afraid of that it "means" being the Director. It's not a dictatorship. Basically you are the guy representing the community in official matters and primary contact to the Division and Region. My mentality is delegation. I want as many people to contribute with what they know and like - instead of me micro managing stuff. I hope that's how I'm perceived by my colleagues anyhow

    Ground Radar plugin 1.4 beta 2

    @Michael Eyecold What kind of performance issues does simulated traffic cause? Since this plugin doesn't really do much with that data, I would expect the issues to rise when using other (non-GRplugin) ASRs. Is this correct, or are there performance issues specific to this plugin as well? The problem with a repeated automatic broadcast of the stand assignment is that a suitable place for it is entirely dependent on the controllers who need the information, whether they have already received the information, and their visibility ranges. All this is very much setup-specific, possibly even d

    Ground Radar plugin 1.4 beta 2

    Thanks Juha. We have tried it with "Show simulated traffic", which worked for us. Just some users do experience some performance issues when activating simulated traffic. So if there would be another work-around by the plugin itself, it would be much appreciated. An idea would be, that as soon as a controller assumes the tag, the (same) stands gets posted again (e.g. vom APP to TWR). No clue if that would even work on developers site... Just some thoughts.

    Help us make a Discord banner!

    We've received two submissions, where unfortunately none of them followed the guidelines, which led to no eligible submissions. Web & Staff department will place a temporary banner for now, and I welcome new submissions to my e-mail continuously if someone feels they captured a new banner within the guidelines above that we should promote.
