TRK C++ - Tracking in MS Flight Flight Simulator
While "flying" in MS Flight Simulator there are 3rd party products
that can "track" your aircraft's position, height, attitude, speed,
direction, etc, and can write these details to a LOG file. The
following snap of my C++ program TRK.EXE is a single instance view
(number 91 of 127) of one such file.
In keeping with the C++ ICON, I used
as my ICON for this application. As bitmap .
This started life as a MS sample imitating the action of fire by
rapidly manually manipulating a memory bitmap. Here I read in the
file and each record is painted as a red dot. The direction of
the aircraft becomes a blue marker on the compass, and the data
is listed to the left.
As stated earlier, this is a simple view of an instance of a
particular track. Here I took off from Sydney International, took a
right turn/loop back over, like downtown Sydney.
Of course one should not forget some of the main attractions...
Then I continued up North coast a little, eventually circling
to the right, out to sea off around Newcastle. Unfortunately FS
had no image of Newcastle or the mighty Hunter river there.
Then back to land again. You are only
seeing one frozen image out of the hour or so the flight took.
