Hi, I created this thread for requests of changes in SAMSIM functionality. I think it will not fall into bugs or future plans.

The first from me:
It would be great to add a Save to dialog for Save 3DAAR. The reason is simple - in win 7 I regularly forget to run SAMSIM as administrator and thus I am not able to save 3DAAR since it is saved to Program Files directory which is not possible under user privileges.

There are two easy solutions to your problem.
First you could move SAMsim folder out of the Program Files, mine is on a separate partition. Second you can right click desktop shortcut, select Properties then compatibility tab, and finally check the last check box labeled "Run this program as an Administrator".

Yes, it is a solution, but - have it somewhere else means garbage on disk and can cause problems during backup or so. The second solution means you also have to run everything else as administrator to delete them from SAMSIM directory.

But the main goal is to have them saved in separate directories immediately (you select directory in a moment of saving) and not to be involved in additional steps :-)

There is a discussion started on the Hungarian forum about adding keyboard control for the SAMSim.
http://forum.index.hu/Article/showArticle?t=9120320&la=121363403

We envision adding UP,DOWN,LEFT,RIGHT, FURTHER,CLOSER,FIRE,EMISSION-ON/OFF.
What is your idea? What keys would be preferred by you?

hmmmm, i would be prefer creating several keys for locking replaced by right click,
for example : lock azimuth = f10 / lock elevation = f12 / lock boresight = f11



PS: NEW idea smash
hpasp... could u create one user interface about connecting joystick or flight stick for take a best effective on sam sim controlling ???
example: move joystick to the right & left (azimuth) / move joystick to the up & down (elevation)
I swear to God it was my best idea cowboy cowboy cowboy

First idea was to ask for; UI window where user can set his own buttons.

for keys i would try;
UP,DOWN,LEFT,RIGHT,- arrow buttons
FIRE,- p
EMISSION-ON/OFF. - space

and yea, external controller would be great for personal SAM cockpit project smile

Here is my suggestion:
Left/Right arrow keys - Azimuth
Up/Down arrow keys - Range
1/2 (above letters) - Elevation
Tab - Emission On/Off
Space - Fire

"1/2 (above letters) - Elevation"

Could you describe it?
I do not understand...

Space - Fire <- this is decided already

I meant 1 and 2 number keys on the left side of the keyboard, not the ones on numerical keyb.

I'd suggest something like:

JKL Azimuth (left lock right)
UHN Elevation (up lock down)
,./ (or <> unshifted) Range (decrease increase lock)

This would work for a UK 103 keyboard, not sure if any are already in use, or whether other layouts would work... perhaps the 'best' option is to allow a remapping either within the program or via a cfg file.

This is good, but pretty uncomfortable. May I suggest an alternative:
1-3 Epsilon movement
2 Epslion lock
4-6 Range movement
5 Range lock
7-9 Beta movement
8 Beta lock
Space Fire
0 High voltage

IMHO this would feel much better.

hpasp...
... all of us had a personal idea and favorite key pad
i guess best way to control it...= create one user interface for sam sim until each user set favorite key on user interface controller

.... maybe one guy like me or others, wants to set joystick button's for sam sim like KUB sam system included with one joystick in tracking panel in real life yep

Here my request!

It'd be nice to have more flexibility regarding screen resolution; if it's less than application native a sort of scrolling could be implemented. That would allow netbook/ultrabook users to run the sim

Regards!
