I am excited to release the first beta for 2.3.12 today! This version requires a beta phase because I’ve rewritten some critical parts of the server core.

The JSON server is now only useful when you are using the LotAtc mission script API (as lotatcLink.registerAtis or lotatcLink.registerUserFlag) . If you are not utilizing this feature, you can disable it (it is now disabled by default).

The updated link integration ensures that weather, datalink, drawing, and marks data are synchronized more effectively (better performances, avoiding potential CPU peaks in some cases. This improvement will also enable extra features in the future.

In the image above:

  1. Enable/disable the JSON server (only with use of the LotAtc mission script)
  2. Automatic install of LotAtc Json launcher, to use with 1.
  3. Load automatically MIST and IA commands for Instructor, only needs to utilize with Instructor (no need to have 1. enabled)

The datalink network management has undergone a significant overhaul. The new implementation fixes numerous bugs and provides better performance as well.

ESM/RWR evolution

RWR is the youngest feature of LotAtc, and I have enhanced the detection algorithm to provide more realistic and useful results for users.

Install

As it is a “beta”, consider this version as unstable.

To install the beta, you need to activate the Beta repository of LotAtc. Just launch LotAtc_installer.exe and follow the 3 steps below:

The 2.3.12-beta1 is compatible with 2.3.x branch

Thanks to all for using beta and sending me feedbacks!
