This question has been asked before, but it seems it has never been answered.


I have a real aircraft which is accompanied by a few simulated aircrafts.

Currently, both types of aircrafts interface their own flightgear instance via the net_fdm and net_ctrl interface, while all flightgear instances are connected together via a local server.


I only need the graphical output for the real aircraft and want to disable the unnecessary  graphical outputs (to reduce work load).


I see two options here:

a) disable graphical output for the simulated aircrafts

b) send position and attitude directly to the server, instead of sending it to a flightgear instance


Is a) achievable without having to patch countless source files of flightgear?


Otherwise, how can I send my position and attitude to a flightgear server?
