  • Happy New Years – Well for FPS

    Posted: 2017/07/01           Category: Announcements          

    Remember that July 1 is the first day of the new year for The Forest Projection and Planning System (FPS).  This means anything measured this year before today is assigned a year of last year for its measurement.  Today ALL growth is considered to have happened and it is year end of the current calendar year.

    Just a quick update.  Been pretty busy making a new Open Project for everyone to use freely.  More on that in the coming weeks.  Currently mixed reviews from my testers but it is extremely bare bones right now.  What else do we know…

  • Thneed Digest – Week 2017 – 11.3

    Posted: 2017/03/17           Category: Thneed Digest          

    An official update from FBRI about the latest (7.5) software.  A new link has been passed out to all?  So we will be calling this FPS 7.5.0.1.  No word on if this one was tested to properly work with windows machines.  Check your email from FBRI for the link.

  • Thneed Digest – Week 2017 – 11.2

    Posted: 2017/03/16           Category: Thneed Digest          

    An official update from FBRI about the latest (7.5) software.  However we tried to download the update from the link and the link is the original disabled software.  Now there is no word on if this package was created with the same packaging software as the original 7.0 crash.  However we are willing to bet it is.  The big deal with this version was supposed to identify your system and only install what was needed for your combination of drivers.  Now FPS should not require any real drivers if standard updated programming techniques were used.  Is FBRI still releasing FPS with non standard features.  Previous versions of FPS have used a depreciated video library.  Perhaps time will tell us what is going on.  Wondering if the upcoming workshop is still happening???

  • Thneed Digest – Week 2017 – 11.1

    Posted:            Category: Thneed Digest          

    Just a heads up to all.  The Penguins in the office got an email from FBRI (we think although the Board policy is that all messages come from the main mailing list not individuals) today that stated don’t install FPS 7.5 at all costs and uninstall it.  Seems that in the process of adding more legitimacy to the software (the stated reason for adding the 12 digit secret code to be more like Microsoft and ESRI products) they have also added the ability to BORK your computer.  AGAIN.  Remember 7.0

    WOW a new release of FPS (7.50).  While the version will not provide real answers until you get the top secret code to use it…  Next week when the office penguins here get there top secret code from FBRI we will be testing it and hope to report back.

  • Thneed Digest – Week 2017 – 09

    Posted: 2017/03/01           Category: Thneed Digest          

    Just a quick update so that people know that a last minute FBRI workshop is happening.  Sounded like the release of the new software… But we have been expecting the new release next week for the past several years.  If it is being released not a moment too soon based on the bugs that people have been telling us about the current version.  While we have only recently started this take a look at the FPS Wiki.  As bugs and other information surfaces we will try to keep you up to date.  This Wiki/FAQ is not a priority for FSD so if you want to join and help out use the contact form at the end of this post to request an account.
