Wow I'm starting to loose my sanity ;D

I'm sorry to post that here, but it drives me crazy.

/*

I switched from using the 450 to the 460 nvidia driver, and now I can launch the game. However, it's suuuuper slow, and I can only have a black screen, with the menu ui, I can very slowly select and click on buttons, go to other menu ui, but all I see in the background is a black screen, nothing else. The issue is that vulkan doesn't seam to work properly, however, I triple checked my hardware and it's compatible with vulkan, I have a Nvidia Geforce Gtx 950M and my drivers are up to date, but it still doesn't work any better. 'Vulcaninfo' gives me the right infos(I think, I'm not 100% sure). And it's the exact same with other games that use the Vulkan shader, I can't run Beamng drive with proton for example, even if it's supposed to be supported. My setup is: intel core i7, NVIDIA Geforce GTX 950M, 8G memory it's strange, if I switch from using my Nvidia card to using only my intel smaller graphic card, the behavior of the game is the same, my cpu is almost maxed out... After some loooonnng researches I saw that it might be that the nvidia drivers don't support switching from one card to another on linux, but I still have no idea how to solve that problem, all the things I've tried failed successfully lol... edit: I'm almost sure that the game doesn't use my main graphic card, its gpu utilization stays almost at the same level when I launch the game, while the cpu usage explodes. Any idea how to make sure the game runs on my Nvidia graphic card instead of my intel smaller graphic card ?

update:

I completely reinstalled vulkan and it works now, expect that it crashes after ~30 seconds in the actual game, so my issue is sort of solved ? thanks for the reading ;)

Do you have any idea of why I'm struggling so hard ? Is my setup good enough for this sim ? how did you install vulkan on your linux machines ?

Can't launch on ubuntu 20.04, it crashes at launch...

Hi Evan !

Well done for your amazing work, it's really impressive !

The wind simulation is simply stunning ! I can't believe you managed to simulate rotors or thermals that well ! And YES thank you ! Changing the harness type is something I've always wanted to do ! The new spawning system is really good too, the fact that we can spawn close to the terrain straight away is a great addition which saves a lot of time.

The only problem I see now is the camera. I really enjoyed the camera fixed to the harness you had on you previous version because you could see the wing and your direction at the same time. I think you should put it back. I really don't like the camera prediction now, it never looks where I want, in first person view like in the external following view. 

For example when soaring and going up, the external view looks up to follow the speed direction of the pilot, but that's not where I want to look at all ! The same goes when the doing wing-over in first person view.

Another great addition would be to be able to move the first person camera with joystick inputs so we could do acro in FPV.

Anyway, stunning work again, the camera stuff was the only issue I could find, Thanks for this beautiful sim, and I can't wait to see the final version ;)

I have the same problem, it won't start on ubuntu 18.04 even with the renamed files.

Is there anything I can try ?

I agree, having axis (like pitch, roll, yaw) for the first person view camera would be so good

That's soooo good, thank you so much for your amazing work

I love this sim so much ! But I only played the phone version, because I'm on linux, so pleeeease, could you make a linux version ? I would love so much to be able to play this game on my computer, and since you are developing it in unity it shouldn't be too difficult to do a linux version (I think ?)

Anyway, that's very very impressiv, I love that a lot !
