STB V2.2 Full Feature List

Recommended Posts

I'm delighted to announce that the STB V2.2 code is now gold and will soon be available for download. So now we can reveal the full feature list, a whole lot more than I originally planned!

• Integration with the popular AIRound Flight Simulator Add-on, offering new AI camera views.

• Listen to the Radio Communications between a selected AI Aircraft and Air Traffic Control.

• User Aircraft may now be subject to flight control. Any AI Aircraft that cause an airspace conflict with the user aircraft during final approach are moved to an arrival stand to clear the way for the user.

• New custom filters to limit the flights on display, applied after your choice of airport and arrivals/departures/everything.

o Filter by operator type, e.g. show passenger flights only.

o Filter by COM1 radio, e.g. show only those aircraft sharing the same radio frequency and hence the same Air Traffic Controller.

• User issued Delete AI commands now remove the selected flight from the board rather than declaring it as a termination in certain circumstances.

• Follow AI no longer uses the slew infrastructure. This eliminates the influence of any user control surface changes that may result in uncontrolled user aircraft movements following a Return to Base command.

• Follow AI is restricted to spotter mode to avoid unexpected side effects on the user aircraft, such as an ATC flight plan cancelation.

• Follow and Shadow AI are only available when crash detection is switched off in Flight Simulator, and when the user aircraft is on the ground.

• The distance between the user aircraft and the AI aircraft being followed may now be configured.

• The STB clock is updated every minute (compared to Flight Simulator) when time acceleration up to 4x is used.

• The following status indicators are included on the board:

o User Aircraft in use by STB (for Follow or Shadow AI commands).

o User Com1 Radio in use by STB (for Listening to AI ATC communications).

o User Aircraft subject to flight control.

o Auto select nearest airport is active.

o AIRound view pending (when the selected AI aircraft enters the appropriate state).

• Changed behaviour of “auto select nearest airport”

o If “auto connect” is enabled, the nearest airport is auto selected once (only) upon connection to Flight Simulator.

o If “auto select nearest airport” is configured with observer mode, the nearest airport is automatilcally chosen once (only) upon connection to Flight Simulator.

o If “auto select nearest airport” is configured with pilot mode, the nearest airport is repeatidly selected every minute.

o When the user aircraft is moved through a Flight Simulator dialogue, the closest airport is selected if “auto select nearest airport” is enabled.

• Automatically configure the role of STB on the basis of user activity. If the user loads a flight plan, the board switched into pilot mode. If not, the board remains in observer mode.

Regards

Simon
