Adding artificial horizon in the minimap
« on: 13 08, 2019, 09:44:03 am »
Hello Community!

Today, I would like to suggest adding this missing thing into the minimap, Artificial horizon.


What is Artificial horizon?

Artificial Horizon, also known as gyro horizon. Designed to tell the pilot of the aircraft how is the aircraft positioned respectively to the ground horizon. 

It can tell the aircraft if it is "level", "pitching" and "rolling".

Here some pictures in real life(Picture 1,2) and some pictures that artificial horizon is actually in use during the old minimap system(Picture 3)

Is it actually useful?

Yes. It is very useful. Most of the players are traveling around the map by helicopter and airplane. This is extremally useful for players to gain control of their aircraft and preventing crashes.
Also by adding this, it is easier for new players to learn flying.

On the other hand, from the folder of CITRadar in local files, I've discovered that there're images can be used for this feature. Which are Plane1.png and Plane2.png, Therefore it is not necessary to redesign the artificial horizon.

In conclusion, by adding this feature, more players will be able to properly fly an aircraft and it is also convenient for those who can fly an aircraft.

Thanks


Special thanks to everyone who supported my last idea, which inspired me to this suggestion.



Its good idea, but i'm asking this minimaps will make anything in FPS or not ?
I don't think so. Since it's not all over the screen, and only displayed on your minimap. Also, this feature mainly monitored the angle and direction you're looking at to determine the gyro(At least back in the old radar. It works like that)

Seems like a great idea in my opinion. Might actually help players with flying like help keeping the plane leveled out. @KhoaBui you should check this out, might interest you.

I was the one proposed this idea and those 2 images were given by me. That dated all the way back to when the DS boards were still a thing. So at some point the dev started working on it but then stopped.

Nice idea, that would revive pilot job, again, Also players who doesn't know how to drive a plane will be interested in learning it. It will help players who doesn't know the altitude idea, will make them take care of being crashed.

This looks dope, I like the design for Gyro Horizon. Hopefully this will be added for Pilot Job. I would love to see this Feature and fly again as a Pilot once this added.  :tick:

I don't think so, If there's a preference to disable it via /settings.

Make anything in FPS like you mean dropping FPS? Like from the /settings Maps when you speed up, your Minimap goes smaller and when you slow down, it goes bigger? (Zoom in and Zoom out?)

I'm supporting this idea. It'll make flying much easier. Our goal is to improve and make this server better so in my opinion if they add this, more players will play as pilot.  :tick:
