an extension to make formation flight using SmartCopilot.
SmartFlying is a Lua script for FlyWithLua that allows formation flight on X-Plane over the internet, without the need of a dedicated server (like IVAO, VATSIM, ect.).
It uses SmartCopilot to establish a connection between two remote users and share the data while it handles X-Plane's AI-Aircraft to show the position of the remotely connected aircraft.
Currenty it has been tested on Linux (primary development platform) and Windows, but it should work without problem on MacOsX.
SmartFlying uses AMS, an advanced package library for Lua included in the distribution archive, and it has been developed around FlyWithLua because unfortunately Gizmo is not currently available for Linux.
Current version: 0.84a (21 Jan 2021)
