Rework of radar modelization

  • 2 modes:
    • Global: all available radars make the total radar coverage as in LotAtc 1.X
    • Monoradar (WIP): Each controller will have to choose the radar to use, it will get only contacts from this one (later coverage will be completed by datalink simulation)
  • Add RCS simulation: all items (planes, heliccopters, missiles…) will be computed and displayed if radar can see it using their RCS resolutaion and item own RCS
  • Add Radar resolution : if enabled, radar will not see items near each other, only one track could be made ( for example 3 aircrafts separated by 20m will be seen as only one contact)
  • Add spot/track management : radar will first see a spot with no data, then after a while (for example 6s, could be csutomized) if the spot is always there, a track will be made on it (and have data as speed, hedaing, symbol…)

All theses options can be enable/disable in profile lua file (see profile/custom.lua for more help).

Rework of radar modelization

  • 2 modes:
    • Global: all available radars make the total radar coverage as in LotAtc 1.X
    • Monoradar (WIP): Each controller will have to choose the radar to use, it will get only contacts from this one (later coverage will be completed by datalink simulation)
  • Add RCS simulation: all items (planes, heliccopters, missiles…) will be computed and displayed if radar can see it using their RCS resolutaion and item own RCS
  • Add Radar resolution : if enabled, radar will not see items near each other, only one track could be made ( for example 3 aircrafts separated by 20m will be seen as only one contact)
  • Add spot/track management : radar will first see a spot with no data, then after a while (for example 6s, could be csutomized) if the spot is always there, a track will be made on it (and have data as speed, hedaing, symbol…)

All theses options can be enable/disable in profile lua file (see profile/custom.lua for more help).

  • Enable dedicated_mode in config lua
  • No more need to edit Config/Options.lua

Next is the same than 2.0.0-alpha3:

Client

Add airport view, you can see aircraft on taxiways now (“airport view” button on airport properties dock)

  • Display aircrafts with top view symbol on airport even if not moved
  • Complete modelisation of airport with parking, taxiways labelised, currently status:
    • Caucasus is fully available

  • layers colors/opacity
  • Symbology

Add SRS support (need last SRS version)

In LotAtc:

  • Open Radio dock
  • Select SRS, then activate
  • Choose a location (airport, AWACS…)

See SRS Discord for more help!

Thanks Ciribob!

[Advanced] Add server admin commands
If enable in config.lua you will be able to pause/unpause/stop the mission directly from LotAtc client

Add opacity slider for filtered objects
All settings are now saved in %appdata% directory (Users directory), no more in register
User can export/import settings
Add toggle mode for measure line, first click will start measure, then just move the mouse to get a BRA, click again to hide it
Add context menu on map
Integrate airports view for all airports on Nevada and Persian Gulf

Dock management update

  • Single click to open/close dock
  • Ctrl+click to maximize/restore
  • Shift+click to maximize/minimize

Label management update

  • Label overlap can be customized (nothing, hide on overlap, increase distanse, increase angle…)
  • Label still be rotated manually by shift+clmick or shift+ctrl+click

Update maps, layers for Caucasus, Nevada, PersianGulf
Optimisation in map loading
Show server pause status
Dark theme is now the default one

Fix properties are shown on spotting element (need to have a track to get data)

Server

Rework of radar modelization

  • 2 modes:
    • Global: all available radars make the total radar coverage as in LotAtc 1.X
    • Monoradar (WIP): Each controller will have to choose the radar to use, it will get only contacts from this one (later coverage will be completed by datalink simulation)
  • Add RCS simulation: all items (planes, heliccopters, missiles…) will be computed and displayed if radar can see it using their RCS resolutaion and item own RCS
  • Add Radar resolution : if enabled, radar will not see items near each other, only one track could be made ( for example 3 aircrafts separated by 20m will be seen as only one contact)
  • Add spot/track management : radar will first see a spot with no data, then after a while (for example 6s, could be csutomized) if the spot is always there, a track will be made on it (and have data as speed, hedaing, symbol…)

All theses options can be enable/disable in profile lua file (see profile/custom.lua for more help).

Better support for dedicated server

  • Enable dedicated_mode in config lua
  • No more need to edit Config/Options.lua
  • Put your licenses in Saved Games//LotAtc Data/Licenses/ In config.lua, enable dedicated_mode, no more need to edit Config/options.lua, just install LotAtc mods now in dedicated saved games directory

Server admins can now:

  • Blacklist/Whitelist Ips (there is still some troubles with IP6 support)
  • Add specific username/password that will be authorized to connect with LotAtc
  • Enable/disable old login way by standard passwords (blue/red one)
