If you want more information about LotAtc 2.0.0, check the LotAtc 2.0.0-alpha1 post here

Here is the third alpha for LotAtc 2.0.0, it contains a big update on maps:

  • Base maps for Caucasus, Nevada and Persian Gulf
  • Update on lake/rivers/roads layers
  • Airport view complete on Nevada and Persian Gukf with taxinames

I rename for ALL maps 05_lakes_rivers.mbtiles to 05_lakes.mbtiles, you can remove manually all 05_lakes_rivers.mbtiles in Caucasus, Nevada and Persian Gulf after install.

You can also uninstall previous install then reinstall client (do not forget to select all required terrains).

SRS is now enabled in LotAtc

Thanks Ciribob!

I also introduce a context menu in LotAtc, it gives fast access to draw/objects properties.

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

Add more control to controllers login
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)
