    warchild replied to a thread Blown away.. in X-Plane
    Ya know, i'm going on about 23 hours without sleep right now so i'm a little loonier than normal, but i cant help thinking that the user interface is still the big drawback that intimidates people at first.. Perhaps though if we made a tutorial on how to set things up and what each menu contained it would help.. what do you think??

    warchild replied to a thread Blown away.. in X-Plane
    See, the thing is, X-Plane is just so bloody real looking and it comes SO empty scenery wise.. Its litterally begging for scenery devs to get in there and recreate the actual world. its already got trains and traffic and pedestrians in places ( I still havent seen the Shinkansen but i'm watching for it ), it deserves some top knotch modeling for various buildings and structures..

    Well, its payware and I apologize for that. On the positive side, its 25 bucks and you may be able too remove the one machine gun in plane maker which comes with x-plane.. http://store.x-plane.org/North-American-B-25-Mitchell_p_263.html I wholeheartedly agree about having choices.. I've got the A2A P-40 myself although ive always been biased towards my own flight model for the Iris birds.. I'm currently focusing on the 727 above as well as JRollons CRJ-200 ( https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Jrollon ). The CRJ practically requires a type rating just to start it up in sim as you'll see.. I'm hoping JAL virtual accepts my suggestion to do legacy routes.. Theres a few more 727 liveries from the sixties i want to do.. :)..

    warchild replied to a thread Blown away.. in X-Plane
    I'm avoiding warplanes any more.. I just cant go back too them.. Mostly now i fly regionals like the saab or crj's or even the 727-100 above.. Its too easy for me to shred most warbirds and I dont want to go there any more.. .. However i would love it if some really kind person were to model Matsuyama castle and the zen gardens for x-plane ::lol::

    warchild replied to a thread Blown away.. in X-Plane
    I like the challenge.. I've always liked the challenge. It didnt matter what sim it was.. mostly though, i wanted to fly a real aircraft so badly that i learned how to make them fly and became a flight dynamics person. I couldnt stand the way FS9/fsx aircraft behaved. So i learned how too make them behave. What resulted was possibly the greatest shift of consciousness i have ever witnessed as dynamicist after dynamicist moved in the same direction with me and now FSX has some incredibly realistic flight models. It also still has some incredibly bad ones, but ya gotta admit, planes like the 737ngx, and larry and daves navion go a very long way towards making up for the bad ones.. I mention those two because those were pretty much the last two aircraft released before i left this community....

    warchild started a thread Blown away.. in X-Plane
    This was SUPPOSED to be me going "Hey. looky what I did".. It was supposed to be that.. Ive been working on this livery of a late 1960s JAL 727-100 for about a day now and was getting really proud of what ive accomplished. Then X-Plane started up. Ive never seen anything like this in FSX or P3D, and these pictures are flat and featureless compared to how it looked in sim and the original pics i took before uploading them.. I'm still stunned.. I'm using the skymaxx plugin here so that may have helped along with the free HD World mesh. I hope its more than just you and I that see it Ted.. But frankly, if not, its their loss. Enjoy..

    So I got an email from Bertrand last night, announcing a completely new release of the Latecoure 28. Naturally I downloaded it immediately. The cabin has been completely redone, and fitted out Switches are marked in English so for those of us who are not fluent in French, theres no more guessing. The passenger area has been fully wallpapered in a period floral pattern and the seating has been changed to wicker weave to match the original seating. No, this plane will not be seen in X-Aviation, nor does it compare to flyJsims work, but its free, its done with a lot of love and looks fantastic. In my opinion, its a must have for the hangar, and one of the most fun flights you can have. More info on it is here: http://xpfr.org/index.php?body=aero_accueil&av=21

    Even though i dont fly FSX or P3D any more this is a must have.. Ive been watching it develop on facebook as have others and to say its stunning is an understatement.. Personally, if he's charging only seven dollars for it, i think he's doing an injustice too himself. The amount of love, care and skill thats gone into this is phenomenal.. I really wish he had released a version for X-Plane 10 but, thats ok.. It'll be wonderful anyway :) .

    Davido it USED to look godawful.. I bought XP v8 some time ago. Worst purchase i ever made. Fortunately the CD's it came on mercifully disappeared some time ago. XpX like FSX is a game changer. I'm a hundred feet off the deck there in an aircraft designed and built for XPv7. Thats like flying a plane from fs2002 in fsx and we all know how those look. Middle sister ( the mountain which is local too me ) speaks for itself. Theres about a half a mile maybe three quarters too the summit from where i'm at there. VC's and aircraft?? X-plane has come a very very long way. It's gobsmackingly gorgeous now. And controls can be set up to mimic your FSX controls with ease. However, no, its not as easy to fly in as FSX or P3D. Like i said, somewhere, I never get a chance too step outside...

    warchild replied to a thread So here's the thing.. in X-Plane
    to say i'm envious of your time in a real simulator would be a glaring understatement. That would be so awesome its not funny.. On the other hand, i never was the smartest kid on the bliock and the 727 not having easy too use guidance and navigation would be way more than i could handle. Hell, a cessna would be more.. I've just never been capable of absorbing what i need to use vor's and direction finding..

    warchild started a thread So here's the thing.. in X-Plane
    When we're talking with people about X-Plane or FSX or even DCS, they may be adults, but really we're talking too the kid part of them. Even I'm a kid when itm comes too this stuff.. I may communicate differently than a kid would: use different phraseology, and temper my responces, but deep inside, we're all five and ten year olds having great times with our favorite toys. Those toys become our box and anything outside that box is percieved as a threat for any of several thousand reasons, and is unceremoniously rejected with great fanfare. Sometimes i feel like a parent trying to get a kid to try a new candy bar.. Who would ever think that the kid could be so adamant that hersheys plain was the only real candy bar and snickers wasnt?? They both taste great, though youve got too have...

    Where in Wells little acre did i or anyone here ever say X-Plane is best?? I Squarely put the blame for that attitude on years of snobbish X-Plane enthusiasts playing some strange game of one ups-manship, which is just plain bull in my eyes.. Your accusing us, long standing members of this forum and community, and your friends of this type of trite behaviour (?) then turning right around and and without any knowledge of the sim whatsoever, declaring that this little game created because Bill Gates wanted to fly his cessna on a PC is the real simulator?? People are blaming Txnetcop and I for the very behaviour they are displaying.. Real simulator indeed.. NONE of them are real, unless licensed by the FAA. One version of X-Plane has that licensing but what you and I fly isnt it. Stand...

    It runs beautifully on my machine, and i'm running a seven or eight year old Intel Q6600e @ 2.4 ghz and 8 gigs ram with a gtx 650 ti boost.. My ayatem is no longer the spectacular thing it was a long time ago, but X-Plane isnt snobbish. it runs anyway @ 26 fps as compared to my 15 FPS on FSX. How dooes it look?? I mean, its in your face up close and personal.. The Late', CL-300 and CRJ-200 are all images taken from my computer.. What you see in this thread and these pics is what i play with almost daily.. I feel like a kid set free in a candy store.. It all works too.. Well, ok, with the exception that the Late' is a port from version 8 that i made. But really in that pic, I wanted to show off the terrain detail. Its insane.. I have no addons like Orbix or anything else...

I was not intended as an endorsement or my approval of doing anything other than driving while your driving. However, if you ride with someone else who is driving, then its a different story..
