    Interesting comparison. It would also be interesting to see a comparison with the first generation Harrier that the Yak-38 would have been in response to. Comparing it to a Harrier II is like comparing Mirage III specs with those of a Mirage 2000. They both have delta wings but ... :ernaehrung004:

    Thanks for the invite Mike, Since I have the great REX textures for real world weather I will have FSX do the weather engine, since i see no reason to spend money on a weather engine when I have REX. I'm in the midst of making test flights using NDB's for navigation. I'm starting to get the hang of it, but the event will help me become a rookie "has been", I hope :biggrin-new: That Duenna is giving me a headache, It's a p.... in the a... Well..., got just over a week to get ready, have to get back in the cockpit, c ya.

    I built many computers for FSX and other gaming pc's over the years. What you read on Tom's Hardware website is related to modern time games. They, in general, rely more on the gpu then on the cpu, and AMD has done a great job for that market. Now FSX is somewhat outdated, and relies mainly on the cpu. I can confirm by experience that FSX will run better on an Intel processor, and you will have smoother graphics using a NVidia graphics card. As an example: I was using a 512Mb GForce 8800 gt with an Intel Q6600 and reached 25-30mbps with medium high settings. Only thing I saw that could improve, was that distant scenery objects would pop up all of a sudden when you got closer. A freind had a 1 year old AMD card w 2 MB memory he wanted to cell, so I was willing to buy it if it...

    Hey Jaap, Great to see you found us here. I am one of the rookies that will be using your great package. I started the flight with your package a few years agom but didn't get very far, as my fsx pc died on me. In the mean time, I have built a new fsx rig, and am eager to get started. Surely is going to be a steep learning curve.

    No worries. I did some research and am doing NG301. I've got all the info I need. The aircraft is finished, just messing with the helmet now. Trying to get the bug to sit right. :ernaehrung004:

    Sometimes I'm slow to figure things out, so it just might be my slowness....but for the sake of argument, let's say that: 1. The guy selling them didn't take the screenshots 2. The guy selling them didn't do the altering of the background in the screenshots 3. They are clearly traceable to other people.... Now what? What is the "desired end state" in this thread if the guy is breaking all of the rules? Is the remedy to sue the guy for infringement of copyright? If so, who would sue him? Where would they get the tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees needed to do that? Are there actually people on this board willing to risk losing large amounts of personal capital to sue the guy over screenshots? I understand being irritated about it, but I guess my real question is,...

    Sorry if it sound dumb but what is the "Duena" I am reading about, and where do I find it. Been looking all over the site, I must be dumb and blind at the same time :(

    REALLY glad to hear the M-346 is still out there percolating (give us a version with English gauges, and a loadout manager, please!). As for the AT-6 variant, after seeing YoYo's latest post, I went to the Iris Facebook page, and saw all of the shots they had of the armed version. This will be another "no-brainer" purchase for me!

    Hope they do an MPP variant or two-- one with a FLIR pod as a minimum...(though it would be gret to see one with FLIR and search radar as well). Kent

    That's exactly right. With few exceptions, every mainland US base has a golf course. And from personal experience you can play on a dirt course. Just rake the green smooth when finished. (was going to say something here about the current golfer in chief but won't) :ernaehrung004:

    I will jump in nose first as a rookie, flying the KLM DC-2 "UIVER" by the "Uiver" team in the Golden Age class. It is my favorite aircraft, but I have never participated in such an event. Flying by NDB is something I am not experienced in, and am reading up on it. Hope to make some test flights next. I just took the graceful lady from EHLE (Lelystad, Netherlands) to Schiphol (EHAM), as KLM informed me that had some parts, needed to get the girl ready for this event in tip top condition. I am reading instructions from D3Airways to learn more about NDB I will be using the excellent scenery by Jaap van Hees, and his weather settings. including his recommended AI aircraft. Weather textures from REX. I am not participating to compete, but just to enjoy the flights, and...
