  • Features you want - List them - Don't debate them

    Let's start a wish list.

    Tell us what you want to see improved/changed or added. Being specific (but not too wordy (unlike me)) is good.

    Please put debates into other threads! Anyone can ask for anything. All requests are equally correct. Debating them (here) would be irrelevant.

    Creating a list so long that we have to recruit an army of student and mentor helpers would be very relevant. Know what I mean?

    Hello,
    In my opinion 5th Gear and Lockheed Martin made a good simulator, and important work.

    Although, there is some important things that need to be fixed.
    First, the camera mode - the players can change the camera mode, but the server don't enable do it! The strategy need a top view for plans....
    The next thing, the limited robots - I learned how to change the XML files, and add my robots models, but there is a limit - you can only use 3 robots.

    Yoni,

      I don't know for sure about this, but I'm pretty sure that the Logitech Attack 3 joysticks sent with the kit are not compatible. Since we are driving our robot with these, I was hoping that you could release support for these types of controllers.

        Understood - In general you want us to create mappings between 5th Gear and more types of operator controls - In particular the KOP Logitech Attack 3 joysticks. - Thanks

          I understand the request for more types of robots, and the implied request for more ways to customize them.

            Yoni - To change the Server's viewpoint, try using the PageUp, PageDown, and arrow keys on the server computer's keyboard. Let me know if they don't work for you.

              use xpadder to change your joystick outputs to your preferences
              works well. i still prefer the keyboard still but that's just me.

              here's a link:
              http://www.xpadder.com/

              I would suggest talking to autodesk about their gaming soft-ware. They handle most professional game developers. it would help a lot with the importing robots since most first teams should be using inventor and max anyways for modeling.

              Good job with the software.
