    Hey All, No argument from me. I think this chase format needs some work but the idea of a "post season" I think is absolutely sound. Grandpa's way just can't cut it in this day and age. -Ed-

    Dino, I would say that for sure you've influenced our project in a positive way. One of the things that's been really pleasing is the mutual respect and good nature between us. Our A/B and D models are a nice compliment to one another, and I know there has been effort on both our parts to make it that way. Your creations are certainly standard setting in the freeware arena, and some (correctly I think) argue that they are payware quality. The whole flightsim community is lucky to have such a talented developer.

    Hey All, This whole points thing baffles me... Go here... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_NASCAR_Sprint_Cup_Series_champions and look at the points margins. Richard petty won one year by over 6000 points. How you say well obviously the points system has been changed several times. Why do you think that was? Uh maybe when the championship is decided I'll watch football?

    Still going through final checks, but it's looking mostly good. One short fall is that the "wandering pilot" scenario calls civilian aircraft that stock in FSX but are not present P3D.

    Expat: TacPack also allows you to spawn target drones and SAM sites to practice systems and ACM. The drone can be set to follow follow several behaviors such as straight and level (great for checking/learning weapons systems), follow (it'll try to get on your tail), or weave (it will try to dodge you). Here's something that's included with the F-14; as before, it's works in the stock package and is enhanced by TacPack (not just weapon firing!).

    Another TacPack feature (which I'm sure YoYo can demonstrate in pictures better than me) is the TV Camera Set (TCS) that allows visual identification of targets up to 10nm away.

    Hey All, Well I'm sure Jeff will enjoy his imaginary trophy and his imaginary dinner celebrating his imaginary championship with his imaginary friends at an imaginary wards dinner. Maybe Bill France Sr the ghost of NASCAR past will be there. Imaginary Congratulations Jeff! You know with respect to these kinds of speculations - there is no way to legitimately know that the other drivers would have driven the same under the old points system as they did this year. So it really is a fantasy. -Ed-

    jmig replied to a thread PD3 utilities recomendations in Prepar3D
    As with most things in life, I find that my interest ing flight simming waxes and wains. I have never given up completely. Over the last few years I haven't been active on the forums. However, I still scanned them and flew on occasion. Life sometimes gets in the way of hobbies. I am excited about the possibilities of PD3. One of the reasons I am going with the developers version is that I am not sure if I purchase V2.4 they won't come out with 3.0 six months later and then I will have to purchase it all over again. I certainly want and will purchase the 64 bit version, when it is released. In the meanwhile, with two copies, I can experiment all I wish. Thank you mark for you additions to the list of possible utilities which will work in PD3.

    Hey All, Larsen isn't going to dump one of the final four drivers in the last race - even he knows better than that. I think Harv mean't nothing saying what he did about Kenseth - he just lets his mouth get ahead of him time to time. Four versus two versus none is always hard. i have no idea if 4 has won more often but many drivers and crew chiefs feel it gives them the best shot. in this race without the last caution or maybe two likely Denny has the title but in this case the four tires gave Kevin restarts to take advantage of them. On other forums lots of speculation on Gordon pitting. Everything from wanting to get out of the way to helping Kevin to making NASCAR's chase system look better. Black helis everywhere. I admit I was astounded that he pitted. Now what to do till...

    Speaking of respect, I noticed that Larson didn't dump Newman (though he could have)....And we didn't have to see Harvick make due on his threat and dump Kenseth. So Harvick won it - I expect no more threats or crying from him (Harvick should now take a lesson from Jimmie on how to act like a champion IMHO). I'm not sure how accurate my memory is so here goes... It seems to me that most of the "big wins" were made with 4 tire changes, not 2..... Seems like Crew Chiefs should be getting this by now.... But what do I know....

    Hey All, WAY TO GO HARV! Great win great championship by Kevin! Sure wish I could be at the Crystal Palace in Bakersfield or at Trouts in Oildale tonight! Be a party I suspect! Kevin ya done Bakersfield proud! What a tough call. Stay out or come in and get 4 or get two... What to do? Darian Grubb at the last moment ordered Denny to stay out and Denny dove out of the line coming in for tires to stay out. Ryan came in and got two - Kevin came in and got four. Joey came in and had the car fall off the jack. I was really sweatin it worried that Darian might have made the right call and a championship would go to Denny. It will be interesting to see if Denny disappears sulking for a year or two and what he says eventually about Darian's call. Toyota's are always fast at homestead...

    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
