Here's a proof of concept video Jason did years back when he first made the L-11 for FS-WWI

So my main concern with releasing the L-11, is that there will be issues with Anders' GPL coding and submodels mixed with the CC license of the FS-WWI art and textures. I'm contacting Anders to make sure that he's OK with a 'fork' in his ship's development.

Good Luck. He is very reasonable, I am sure there will be no problem :)

If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

See there's that darn FDM problem with JSBsim, I'm going to have to add a generous amount of body structure points to get it to interact with the hangar walls. I was trying to 'fly' the Zepp through the opening and secure it within and it just drifts blithely though hangar's surfaces like it's in another dimension.

You mean, you don't want it to crash, but bounce gently off the hangar walls?

Realistically there'd be dozens of strong guys with ropes and a couple of heavy trucks with mooring rope cleats to control the Zeppelin while taking it in and out of the hangar.

That's not really JSB, that is FG in which the models are permeable. No collision control.
