  1. Infact it doesn't work at all. It's just a crazy thing in the real world. In dieselpunk terms, it's just a crossover between train and plane. Which is, somehow, cool to see. From my point of view, it's just a speculative curiosity... I don't really have any intention of making a plane of that kind. It's just for fun.
  2. Yes, this is definitively a way to go... But what about asymmetrical fuselage? I don't think that there is a way to do that... Infact, a part some artistic painting, I don't even think that a planes with asymmetrical fuselage really exists... Thanks for you suggestion.
  3. Is it possible to do an asymmetric plane in XP? By asymmetric I mean the fuselage, as in this Dieselpunk painting: Or asymmetric wings, as in the Rutan Boomerang: ..or the Blohm & Voss BV-141: ...or BV-111:
  4. I've always check Gizmo in the hope for a Linux version, because I would like some day to buy X-Aviation's planes. I had to stop flightsimming for personal reasons from 2014 to 2020, that's why you didn't had me noticing it before. When I had to leave XP's world in 2014, Gizmo was the most interesting solution out there. That's why I'm still interested in it, even if I'm cut off from it (I am a Linux-only user). Best, Cap.S.
  5. Sorry, Ben, I don't want to insist in any way, I'm just trying to understand. It is clear, from this sentence, that there is "no current and working Linux plugin" but, at the same time, in the release `Gizmo64.plugin-20.06.08.0325-beta2` there is a lin_x64 built. That's why I'm confused, because to me it looks like Schrödinger's cat: it exists while, at the same time, doesn't exists. So the build I see here is not good, it's just a sort of placeholder? Something like that?
  6. I believe that I'm totally confused about Gizmo64. I am a Linux-only user and I would like to buy X-Aviation planes but they are not available for my OS because of Gizmo. Infact here is clearly stated that there is 'No Linux support'. But then, if you download thae file, you read this: So in the package there is a Linux version but post says that there is no "Linux support". I clearly remember, back in the old days, that Mr. Ben Russell stated that the primary development platform for Gizmo was Linux. But, we all know that there is no major difference between Mac an Linux ve

    SmartFlying 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 pack

  9. What about peer-to-peer connections? In your knowledge, are there any plugin for X-Plane that allows to share data between to X-Planes over the internet? Basically the same thing that XP already does for LAN, but over Internet...
  10. Thanks @fehrster for the suggestion. It looks interesting but, unfortunately, it appears to work natively only on Windows, through wine on Linux and not available for Mac. I am on Linux and I must say that I have no idea what to do with the '.msi' file that I've downloaded there. I haven't found where to download the usual '.xpl' plugin for X-Plane.
  11. Formation Flying with other people that are not on your LAN is quite a challenge on X-Plane. To achieve that, in the past I've used many time IVAO and VATSIM servers. If you spawn in areas far from the big airports, like the web of inlet in British Columbia, you can use those server just to see your buddies. BUT... there are couple of problems. A part that it's quite a nightmare to setup, especially if you want to see the right plane, the major problem is that it has become nearly impossible to create an account on those sites. I've had many friend that were not able to sign-up on ei
  12. I guess is quite difficult to run Windows on a proprietary ARM Chip even if Win does run on ARM7 and ARM64 Machines... I can understand the excitement, but I remember the adventures that Apple had when decided to switch to an unknown RISC chip called Power. It'a risky business...
  13. My fault. It works as expected indeed. It was just a mistake on my side.
