OpusFSI Beta Version 6.05.01 is now available for download on our website.

Download from http://www.opussoftware.co.uk/opusfsi/downloads.htm
 
 
Modified weather update procedures in Selective Update mode to overcome known in-sim problems of rendering rain and snow correctly at the point of departure.
 
Added a 'Quit' button option to the Weather dialog. Pressing this button or the dialog's 'X' will now save all modifications to the Weather dialog settings. Previous versions would only save the new settings when one of the Reload, Update, or Refresh buttons were pressed.

OpusFSI Beta Version 6.05.02 is now available for download on our website.

Download from http://www.opussoftware.co.uk/opusfsi/downloads.htm
 
 
In Selective Update weather mode, after finalising the regional weather and removing the OpusFSI Weather on-screen banner, all further background (distant) weather updates are disabled until airborne and 10 miles (16km) away from the point of departure. This update is intended to prevent any change to the displayed local precipitation (P3D bug) until airborne and on route.

Download from http://www.opussoftware.co.uk/opusfsi/downloads.htm
 
 
Modified Live Camera to save the InitialZoom to 5 decimal places allowing very fine adjustments to the zoom setting in Windowed Views.
 
Modified the OpusPDK Interface weather handling.
 
Upgraded the OpusFSI Selective Update mode's weather injection procedures. Selective Update weather initialisation time has been reduced and the number of in-flight distant weather updates reduced by nearly a third. Increased the frequency of background updates to a maximum of one per second, updates in general are now far less frequent.
 
N.B. Selective Update weather mode should still be DISABLED on systems supporting one or more client systems. P3DCLIENT has not been fully updated yet so Dynamic Weather Theme mode (Selective Updates Disabled) should be used.

Provided the destination is specified, Live Weather will now always generate an OpusPMDGData.txt text report. If a PMDG aircraft is selected this report will be also be copied to the sims \PMDG\Wx folder. If no flight plan is specified, or a flight plan with only two points has been specified, then OpusFSI will create a new flight plan of the form "FFFF TTTT", where 'FFFF' is the departure ICAO and 'TTTT' is the specified destination ICAO.
 
Added a 'Quit' button option to the Weather dialog. Pressing this button or the dialog's 'X' will now save all modifications to the Weather dialog settings. Previous versions would only save the new settings when one of the Reload, Update, or Refresh buttons were pressed.
 
The Import/Export PLN options within the Flight Plan dialog and the 'Load PLN Flight Plan' option within the Live Weather Add-ons menu will now both default to either the 'Flight Simulator X Files' or 'Prepar3D v4 Files' Documents folders depending on sim type.
 
Regards

P.S.
 
I am still working on a slight problem injecting theme weather (surface and temperature targets) and high elevation sites. I will post a new beta as soon as I have the fix.

OpusFSI Beta Version 6.07.01 is now available for download on our website.

Download from http://www.opussoftware.co.uk/opusfsi/downloads.htm
 
 
Modifications to ensure full compatibility with the new Prepar3D v5 simulator.
 
The P3DSERVER and P3DCLIENT programs now accept an optional V4 or V5 program argument which can be used to identify the required Prepar3D sim version. If no argument is specified the software attempts to determine what version you last specified, or what version you have installed. By default both programs assume the latest P3Dv5 is required.
 
Modified the PDKSETUP utility program to modify all Prepar3D XML.DLL files for both installed Prepar3D v4 and v5 sim types. Users must run the PDKSETUP.EXE in Admin Mode after installing the new Prepar3D v5 sim to enable the OpusPDK Interface for that sim.
 
Modified the OpusFSI Flight Plan PLN Import and Export document folder initialisation to accommodate both v4 and v5 Prepar3d sim types.
 
The zoom setting for Live Camera Spot and Locked Spot views can no longer be specified allowing these views to be setup 'on the fly' with the current position and zoom being restored when returning to the view.
 
Regards
Stephen Smile
 
P.S.
 
I am currently looking into creating a new OpusPDK_v5.dll library to take full advantage of any new PDK weather and camera features.

Both the P3DSERVER and P3DCLIENT programs can now detect which version of Prepar3d is active and set their version accordingly. Hence, if you run the Prepar3D simulator first there's no need to supply any program argument or configure the correct sim folder. These 'active Prepar3D sim' checks take precedence over any supplied program argument or sim folder configuration.
 
The P3DSERVER and P3DCLIENT program captions now indicate whether they are operating in Prepar3D V4 or Prepar3D V5 mode.
 
Regards
Stephen Smile
 
N.B.
 
The displayed ambient wind direction in all OpusFSI weather reports is only a snapshot of the wind direction at the moment the report is opened or at the time of report update. There is a P3Dv5 bug which can result in the ambient wind direction endlessly cycling between two values, this cycling will not be reflected in the reports display.

The Live Weather engine will now detect and process any changes to, or the creation of a new, PLN flight plan within the current Import/Export PLN Flight Plan Folder. This feature is only active when on the ground. Any change to a PLN flight plan file (or the creation of a new PLN flight plan file) will be processed and trigger a Full Weather Reload.
 
Modified the Live Weather Flight Plan Options dialog. The Import/Export PLN Flight Plan Folder now defaults to the <SIM> Files Documents folder (e.g. Prepar3D v4 Files folder) to search for any PLN flight plan changes.

OpusFSI Beta Version 6.08.02 is now available for download on our website.

Download from http://www.opussoftware.co.uk/opusfsi/downloads.htm
 
 
Added 'Auto Load Newest Flight Plan For Departure' and 'List All Available Flight Plans For Departure' checkbox options to the OpusFSI Flight Plan Options dialog. The second option is disabled (greyed out) for this beta.
 
When ticked the 'Auto Load Newest Flight Plan For Departure' will instruct the OpusFSI Live Weather engine to search for all likely flight plans for your point of departure in the current specified Import/Export folder. It will then determine the newest (last updated) file and automatically import (load) the newest flight plan. After the flight plan has been loaded a Full Weather Reload is performed by the weather engine.
 
For a flight plan file to be recognised the departure point's ICAO code must appear within the filename and start within the first four characters. In other words you are allowed to have up to three characters preceding the ICAO code. The checks are not case sensitive.
 
For example, assuming the aircraft is on the ground at EGNX (East Midlands, U.K.) then the following filenames will all be recognised.
 
EGNXEGKK.pln
EGNX TO EGKK.pln
001EGNXEGKK.pln
01_EGNXEGKK.pln
01 EGNX TO EGKK.pln
 
When any flight plan is loaded with automatic weather generation the weather engine will display the following banner on the simulator screen for a period of 20 seconds.
 
OpusFSI Live Weather - Loading Flight Plan : <flight_plan_name>

Modified the 'Auto Load Newest Flight Plan For Departure' to determine 'last modified' PLN file.
 
Added the 'List All Available Flight Plans For Departure' checkbox option. When ticked this option will display a text list of the first nine available flight plan filenames, ordered from newest to oldest. Select the required flight plan menu number, or click on the plan with the mouse, to load the plan and perform a Full Weather Reload.
 
Added a 'SHOW PLN FLIGHT PLAN LIST' option to the simulator's OpusFSI Live Weather Add-on menu. This option will display the above list of matching flight plans.
 
Each entry in the Flight Plan menu is displayed using the format,
 
X - <date> <time> : <filename>

Live Weather Smoothing dialog's Selective Update option is disabled by default due to the current problem in P5D handling weather station updates with the Enhanced Atmospheric (Beta) option enabled. N.B. Selective Update mode is fine if the new P5D Enhanced Atmospheric (Beta) option is disabled.

Enabling the Wind Stabilisation option within the OpusFSI Weather Smoothing and Stabilisation dialog will now fix all upper winds to a speed of 2 knots. This option is intended to completely neutralise all wind shifts within the P3D v4 and v5 simulators. Surface winds and upper wind directions are unaffected. Only the upper wind speed is affected.
 
Modified cloud layering in P3Dv5 where appropriate (not where CBs or TCUs are present) to prevent the silly and totally unrealistic cloud overlap P3Dv5 Settings errors.

OpusFSI Beta Version 6.09.05 is now available for download on our website.

Download from http://www.opussoftware.co.uk/opusfsi/downloads.htm
 
 
Added a 'Max Upper Wind Strength' setting in the Weather Smoothing and Stabilisation dialog. Set this to zero to specify no wind speed limit. A non zero setting will limit all upper winds from 4000ft altitude and above to the specified maximum wind speed. This option replaces the fixed 2kt Wind Stabilisation limit in the previous betas.
 
The Max Upper Wind Strength option allows users to neutralise or minimise all wind shifts generated by the current P3Dv4 and P3Dv5 simulators until such time as LM fix the problem (especially in P5D). Surface winds and upper wind directions are unaffected by this limit, only the upper wind speed is affected.
 
A suggested value of 3% of your aircraft's cruise speed should suffice (e.g. 8kt limit for aircraft with a 240kt cruise, 9kt limit for 300kt cruise), some trial and error may be needed. Setting the 'Max Upper Wind Strength' to 2 to 5 knots should completely neutralise the effect of all P3D generated wind shifts.
 
N.B. The ambient wind is not controllable dynamically in P3Dv4.5 or P3Dv5 so the above limit can only be set as target upper wind speeds during weather the generation and subsequent weather injection. The P5D wind shifts are not dependent on the method of weather injection and are inherent in the current P5D software, observed whilst using all weather engines.
 
Added a 'Disable PLN File Watcher' checkbox option to the OpusFSI Flight Planning dialog for those users who prefer to manually select and load a departure flight plan before flight.
 
Regards
Stephen Smile
 
P.S.
 
I am currently preparing an OpusPDK_V5.DLL which will start to include a few of the new V500 specific functions (e.g. to read the sims new Enhanced Atmospheric setting). This DLL will not be compatible with P3Dv4.5 of course so this will have to be taken account. The new PDK library will simply prepare things ready should LM decide to include new camera or weather related functions in the PDK. Please note, ALL weather functions in the current PDK are contained within the V430 interface, there are no V500 weather or camera functions at present.

OpusFSI Beta Version 6.11.00 is now available for download on our website.

Download from http://www.opussoftware.co.uk/opusfsi/downloads.htm
 
 
First beta with the 'Enable Live Traffic Synchronisation' configuration option. The Live Traffic Sync option attempts to synchronise all traffic (ground and aircraft simobjects) between the server and all Live View client systems. This beta is restricted to synchronising all ground traffic (objects) only. All ground objects within 1000 metres are detected and synchronised. Ground objects that move beyond 2000 metres away are automatically removed.
 
The Live Traffic Synchronisation and Live Traffic Map Update configuration options are mutually exclusive.
 
This beta also includes the OpusFSI OPUSFSCTQ.EXE driver for the B737 Full Metal Motorised Throttle Quadrant Pro unit by FSC (Flight Simulator Centre, www.fsc.it). The driver provides an improved and fully functioning driver for Prepar3D v4 and v5 simulators and the PMDG 737NGX and 737NGXu aircraft.
 
The OpusFSI FSC TQ driver is unlicensed and utilises SimConnect and the PMDG SDK to interface to the sim. Please refer to the supplied OpusFSI FSCTQ User Guide PDF document file in your OpusFSI_v6\DOCS folder for details.

Corrected a problem updating and checking the destination weather, previous versions were using SimConnect functions that no longer work in the latest P3D v4 and v5 software.

Added a Weather Test ICAO textbox and Test button to the Weather dialog.
 
After the weather has been generated the ICAO code of any Met Station within the weather region can be specified and the Test button used to set, request, and check the 'in sim' weather at that location. The results are displayed in the Spy window which is automatically activated if not already active.
 
Example Spy window content,
 
 MET  Weather Test At EGCC MANCHESTER INTL, Distance 85.4 km
 SIM  Requesting Metar For EGCC
 MET  Weather At EGCC
 MET  QNH: 1006 mb, 29.71 in, Temp: 16/15, Vis: 24000m, Wind: 230/8 at 0 ft (0 m)
