Level up your EuroScope too?
« on: August 01, 2020, 12:58:10 PM »
Inspired by the thread about weather radar in EuroScope/CanScope, I decided to take a look at the EuroScope plugin documentation to see how tricky it might be to roll our own solution.

As a proof of concept, I wrote a plugin that:

  • Displays correlated radar targets with a VFR flight plan using an orange present position symbol.
  • Draws halo tool for rings around specific aircraft. The built in function in ES draws around all planes and there's no way to only apply rings to specific planes.
  • Provides a mouse halo tool to aid with separation.

There's very little information on how these tools work, so this is inferred from some videos and blurry screenshots from Transport Canada incident reports  :P . If anyone has some feed back or more information PM, discord, chat with me in the TS.

Very experimental, but happy to share the plugin if anyone wants to play with it.

This is nice.
Is this going to be released on Github?

Adding a few more bits to mimic the real thing   ;D
(Range updates with zoom, CJS updates with position)
