    Already? again?? We have always lived in a small community, and the retraction of FSX from Microsofts lineup dwindled that community to a microcosm of that already small community. To me, this sale is a direct reflection of that as it indicates that the potential continuing income of the FSX base flight simulator is approaching nil, and is being staged to be moved into the mothball library where all old games and software go. This worries me as it impacts continued and future development on the FSX platform. In truth after a year hiatus from flight simming, i returned to SOH only to find the exact same aircraft and the exact same scenery still being discussed in the forums. FSX is clearly entering the doldrums. The X-Plane community has not been an open community. Truth told, my own...

    Well, my old friend Agentalpha. The on-liners are over at www.sim-outhouse.net now. That's a separate registration from this site. See you around. :D

    the X-65F has its own issues.. I use mine now only because after the move last year i cant find the stick part to my X-52.. Topping that, the X-65 is no longer being offered for sale.. They pulled it from the store.. However, The X-55 Rhino, appears to be half way between an X-52 ( adjustable spring loaded column ) and the X-64 ( a huge amount of extras to use ). ive heard nothing but good about it so far..

    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..

    warchild replied to a thread Blown away.. in X-Plane
    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..
