    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::

    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....

    It is the only true 64 bit simulator around right now, but I confess I fly FSX just as much on my antique.:O)

    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..

    One thing they stress is a video card with 4GB of ram...I don't even come close. The Nvidia 970 is looking mighty good right now...now accepting donations LOL!!! I have to admit to being surprised how well this old QX9650 and GTX 285 runs FSX and X-Plane 10.3.

    Hey John~ Thanks for helping me out with the "friendship request" issue. I did not get any notification at all.
    Gigabyte was able to help me with the Blog thing. So we are all set!
    Great teamwork there!
  2. Cool pic of you and the tweet!! I'm very envious. Maybe if I had better eyesight I wouldn't have failed my flight physical and toiled as a crew chief for so many years. Renting planes gets expensive!!

    You're kinda reserved, but I'd sure love to hear some good flying stories of your sometimes. What years were you active and what ypes did you fly?

Inside Beta Testing

by jmig on January 2nd, 2012 at 19:23
Over the last ten years or so, we have all seen MSFS models go from $5.00 each to $50.00 and more. With the increase in pricing, have come increased systems integration and model complexity. Interior and exterior visual acuity rivals today real aircraft. As the realism of flight sim models have increased, so too have the expectations of the consumer.

Developers are caught between the customers’ desire for ever better and more exact models, and the increased costs in man hours to program

End Devices for I/O Cards

Real world pilots control aircraft functions with switches, potentiometers, encoders, etc. We virtual pilots can also control our virtual aircraft with switches, potentiometers, encoders and more…through the I/O card.

Remember the I/O card is nothing more than a middle man between us and the flight simulator. By twisting a knob, or moving a control we send information through the I/O card to our virtual

Using I/O Cards

In an earlier entry I mentioned Input/Output (I/O) cards. Today we will look more closely at them and what they can do to enhance your flight sim experience. We will also look at some different I/O cards and later start building a simple switch panel which will control some of the MSFS basic functions.

Perhaps the most common I/O card available is the one in that old used joystick you have sitting up in the

I have had several requests for pictures of the cockpit. So I am posting here a few pictures of what the cockpit looks like. Please remember this is the acumination of six or seven years of research and work.

As we continue this blog, I will show you how I made many of the components and panels you see here.
This blog will go through the basic building blocks which together make up the simulator. Also, what

First-Sim & I/O Cards

Here are pictures of my first sim “cockpit”. It consisted of two Go-Flight Modules and three parts I made myself.

I also used two monitors, One for the outside view and another for the instruments. Holding everything was a simple plywood frame I constructed to support the monitors and components.
