    I am going to add a new feature to ObPlacer XML. To make it easier to move a current object, I am going to add a function that can place your aircraft to the current position of the object. You can then start moving from there.

    At the moment I am trying to implement this and it looks like I need to shift from FsConnect to FSUIPC. But that should not be a problem as FSUIPC is very common :).

    More news will follow when I have it.

    OK, the new version is now almost ready. In the end I have added a few more new features, then only the ability to write the position to FS. Some of the other new features are:

    • preview pictures (yes, all requests for that features helped :))
    • the BGL path is now remembered for each XML file
    • You can rescan the objects in the tree, for example to update a user library after you have added a new object with Library Creator XML, so no need anymore to restart ObPlacer XML in that case

    I "only" have to finish the new manual and finish the installer (like the one I used with Library Creator XML) and then I will release this new version.

    Great! I'm really looking foreward to this new version, for I'm using the old for both my projects. You now implement just those features which I am missing. :) ;)
