  2. Happy 2017 loungers! I hope you had a wonderful holiday break. It's been nice to feel the winter breeze, but I think we deserve a trip to enjoy the Mediterranean skies. A huge thanks goes out to TSL Patron @Whachootalkinaboutwillis for this tour suggestion. Pack your bags and get ready, we're going to Spain! This is Part 1 of 3 for this beautiful country and we'll be starting in the North. At this point in my tour posts I usually inject a bit of info on the country's geography, and climate. I have a feeling no one really reads this far and not doing the write up saves me lots of time so let me know if I'm wrong as time is VERY limited in my world.

  6. Cool info. I wish I would have thought of that. I've been modifying or adding the eyepoint on every one of my planes individually in the aircraft config files. It's a lot more work that way but, once Chaseplane comes out of Beta I won't have to be default camera guy anymore.

  7. Hi Folks, Winter in the North hemispher is the right moment to see Auroras Borealis also called Northern Lights. Nevertheless, it's often not very obvious to see them in real life as you need a lot of chance to experience that. My scenery ENJA gave you opportunity to see them casting at the same place. Now, let me introduce you to FTX Auroras, a global addon providing you a world wide coverage of such special solar effects over the stratospher. Northern Lights scheme of forecast generally follows the magnetic polar circle. They are mostly seen in Alaska, Canada, Iceland and North of Scandinavia. Southern Lights are less famous as they mainly concerned Antartica and some small parts of australia and New Zealand. The addon is now in beta test with Northern Lights. The map below gives you an idea of the places they are displayed: Now some samples (from P3D) you are expecting to meet: Please keep in mind these pictures are WIP so colors and shapes would change.

  11. Here is something to go easy on your wallets for the post-holidays A patch is incoming for PAYA Yakutat with some new features and upgrades. Yakutat has always been one of my favorite airports and I felt it should be pulled into the modern era. Yakutat has the benefit of being created at a time right when older development techniques were being shed, and many of the more modern techniques used post-2013. The combined with it not needing any sort of hacks or workarounds allowed it to be updated very easily, so I felt it was only right to go ahead and do as much justice to the airport as possible. I also noticed a little bump in interest in Yakutat after Valdez was released, so for the folks shooting up the coast, this should provide a nicer start or end point. Here is a rundown of changes: -Re-sharpened textures, almost all building textures at Yakutat should not appear much sharper and crisper. -Ground polygon updated to make use of native Prepar3D materials. FSX users will also benefit, as the textures in general are better now, even if there is not specular shine, bump mapping, etc. The ground polygon has also shed quite a bit of weight, overall texture count at Yakutat has been reduced by 44 bitmaps which equates to 69mb smaller, with more detail. -Snow in winter on the ground polygon has been improved, and looks snowier. P3D users note this will have to be enabled by control panel. -New clutter objects added such as power lines, and more junk around the airfield. -Replaced lower polygon car models with new ones in prominent locations -Replaced default beacon model with one that is less laser-like -Fixed runway light halos appearing square -Replaced snow pile in the middle of the apron with an improved model -Night lighting has been re-rendered completely. It is also no longer making use of effects, and is instead all rendered straight to textures which is more consistent and performance-friendly. -Re-rendered WWII in 2048px with a control panel option to set the texture resolution. Some quick comparison gifs, in before/after format: New night environments, can you believe what used to pass for realistic? Improved ground polygon materials, particularly in Prepar3D. Note the specular shine off the asphalt and paint. Re-rendered textures, much crisper than the originals. All with no performance loss or texture resolution increase apart from the WWII hangar, with its new 2048px option. It is in the hands of the testers right now, and I hope it will be through shortly SOURCE

  12. Last wednesday I was able to film a Ukraine International Boeing 737 departure at Düsseldorf while a Boeing 787 Dreamliner of ANA was on short final. I don` t know why, but Ukraine International always uses almost the entire runway for its takeoff run to Kiev, which is only a 3 hour flight. The ANA Dreamliner caused lots of water spray on the wet runway while using the reversers. Nice effect. New video every Saturday at 14:00h MEZ (13:00h utc) Featured planes: 1.) Ukraine International Boeing 737-800 2.) ANA Boeing 787-8 Thanks for watching, I hope you liked it and don` t forget to rate. Letzte Woche kam es zu einer netten Situation, als eine Ukraine B737 gerade gestartet ist und der tägliche ANA Boeing 787 Flug aus Nartia plötzlich hinter der Maschine auftauchte. Besonders auffällig ist, dass Ukraine International immer fast die gesamte Startbahn bis zur Rotation benötigt, obwohl sie sich nur auf einen drei stündige Reise nach Kiev begibt. Vielleicht sorgen russische Sanktionen dafür, dass die Kerosinpreise in der Ukraine so hoch sind, dass in Deutschland vollgetankt wird, obwohl Deutschland nicht wirklich für niedrige Rohstoffpreise bekannt ist. El último miércoles pude filmar una salida Boeing 737 de Ucrania Internacional en Düsseldorf mientras un Boeing 787 Dreamliner de ANA estaba en la final corta. Yo no sé por qué, pero Ucrania Internacional siempre utiliza casi toda la pista para su despegue correr a Kiev, que es sólo un vuelo de 3 horas. El ANA Dreamliner causó mucho agua pulverizada en la pista húmeda mientras se usaban los inversores. Buen efecto. 最後の水曜日、私はデュッセルドルフでウクライナ国際ボーイング737出発を撮影できましたが、ANAのボーイング787ドリームライナーが短期決勝に進出しました。私は理由を知ることはできませんが、ウクライナ・インターナショナルはキエフへの離陸のために滑走路のほとんどを常に使用しています。これはわずか3時間のフライトです。 ANAドリームライナーは、リバーサを使用しながらウェット滑走路に多くの水スプレーを発生​​させました。ニース効果 Quarta-feira passada consegui filmar uma partida da Ucrânia Boeing 737 internacional em Düsseldorf enquanto um Boeing 787 Dreamliner da ANA estava em curta final. Eu não sei porque, mas Ucrânia Internacional sempre usa quase toda a pista para sua corrida de decolagem para Kiev, que é apenas um vôo de 3 horas. A ANA Dreamliner causou muita água pulverizada na pista molhada enquanto usava os inversores. Bom efeito. Le dernier mercredi, j'ai pu filmer un départ d'Ukraine International Boeing 737 à Düsseldorf tandis qu'un Boeing 787 Dreamliner d'ANA était en finale courte. Je ne sais pas pourquoi, mais Ukraine International utilise toujours presque toute la piste pour son décollage courir à Kiev, qui est seulement un vol de 3 heures. L'ANA Dreamliner a causé beaucoup d'eau pulvérisée sur la piste mouillée tout en utilisant les inverseurs. Beau effet. Thanks for watching, see you next week.SOURCE

  13. Hi guys So I have a topic for you guys to talk about, it's Infinite Flight Simulator, I love this simulator as I do not have Fsx or X-plane so I use this simulator. I highly recommend that you try this sim out and talk about it ! It has live atc and online flights ! I love this app so much that I created a youtube chanel called SIKU MAN dedicated to Infinite Flight. Thanks for the awesome streams and you guys are awesome ! Logan. S

  15. Pilot2ATC is a Payware Program that simulates ATC control, you communicate to the simulated ATC just as you would on the online networks, vatsim etc. All on your own private computer preparing yourself for the day you take your Simming live on a online network. I have been using it practicing for the day I go live so I won't have the high amount of nervousness that goes along with the fear of not screwing up live on a network. IMOO worth the cost invested by me. Here's the link http://pilot2atc.com/

  27. Nice, thank you for the reply! The GSX thing must be what I see some hosts using. Cool. Also, good to know the DC-10 package is just like the 747, so that will make me feel more comfortable.

  28. The JustFlight DC-10 is the same, or very similar, to the 747 in terms of fidelity. It has broadly the same features, and has the same basic INS and FMC systems onboard. For ground equipment, the best option is an addon called GSX from FSDreamTeam. It was sold through JustFlight until recently, but it is still available through their website here. It is compatible with most addons, and is what most streamers use for ground services. I hope I have helped, Rob

  29. @Whachootalkinaboutwillis, I get back on Friday and am happy to go through a complete walk through with you. In the mean time, the best advice I can give you is go into the sim settings, controls, then go to axis, and delete all the preset mappings. Then go 1 by 1 and map the axis to your preference (throttle to throttle, etc...) Keep in mind that with the x56 there are now two controllers you need to utilize in the drop down menu when selecting your controller. One for the stick and one for the throttle. Hope this helps. PM me in discord if you have any questions.

  30. He was a legend. To hear the stories of R.A. “Bob” Hoover’s life, one might think they were reading a movie script. His escape from a German POW camp, his role on the X-1 team that broke the sound barrier, his career as a test pilot for North American Aviation, his breathtaking air show routines. Any one story is interesting enough, but they’re all details in the life of one man. He was a gentleman. Read more about Bob's life in the January 2017 issue of EAA Sport Aviation magazine.SOURCE

  31. Captain of the Ship 049 Constellation (FSX) $59.99 This product included BOTH the AIRCRAFT and it's associated CAPTAIN OF THE SHIP expansion pack. OVERVIEW: So, what is the most beautiful piston engine airliner? Pose this question among two or more aviation enthusiasts and you may be sure that a lively, possibly heated discussion will ensue. However, I would be quite surprised if most, if not all, would ultimately agree that the Lockheed “Constellation” was the most beautiful, graceful if you prefer, or at least among the top two or three. The “Connie,” as it was universally and affectionately called (much to the dismay of Eddie Rickenbacker of WWI fame who, as the owner of Eastern Airlines, thought the name to be too effeminate) was a spectacular and singular aeronautical design from the first rude sketch of “Excalibur” to the last L-1649 “Starliner.” Gathering many firsts and breaking many records in its almost five decades-long useful lifetime, Constellation consistently stands out from her sister airliners both visually and functionally. Sadly, the many luminous stars embodying this “Constellation” were ultimately eclipsed when at their brightest by the urgent, inexorable force of progress which saw the end of the age of the long-distance piston engine airliners and the birth of the big, jet-powered transports. This new era of air-transportation in the U.S. Began on 26 October 1958 when Pan American Airlines (Pan Am) flew a Boeing 707 with 111 passengers from New York to London. Soon, the jet-powered Douglas DC-8, Convair 880 and Sud Aviation “Caravelle” joined the 707 and long-range piston airliners were through. Even so, there are many, this writer among them, who posit that even whilst swifter, no kerosene burning aluminum tube has ever come close to matching Connie’s superb grace and poise. Her story is full of ironies and surprises, of Geniuses, Presidents and Pioneers. You see, there once was this fabulously wealthy, incandescently brilliant, eccentric movie mogul, aviator and airline owner who had an idea for an airplane... FEATURES: History comes alive: Experience a timeless legend brought to life inside a simulation. Every aircraft is unique: Don't expect all gauges to read the same values, just like the real airplane. And each airplane is persistent. Four crew positions: pilot, co-pilot, flight engineer, and navigator. Fully modelled and functioning positions constructed with down to the rivet detail. Intelligent crew and responsive passengers: - Your engineer can manage all the systems on the fly, responding to various conditions - Copilot calls out critical info - Navigator observes and posts findings - Flight attendent tirelessly works for both you and the passengers (just like the real world counterparts) Unexpected events possible: Engines along with other systems including heating, air conditioning, and pressurization can be problematic Captain's Career: Your performance is remembered and can get better, worse, or stay consistent based on your flying abilities and flight management Real time Load Manager: with the ability to load individual passengers, cargo, and fuel or select presets. Custom Navigator's Map: Zoomable map can be customized to show the desired information Default and Historic Sperry Autopilot: You can select either autopilot in the sim Authentic fuel deliver includes primer only starts: You can start the engines properly by using primer with the mixture in the OFF position. Auto-Mixture: that actually performs as intended. Now you can set for “auto-rich” or "auto-lean" and the aircraft fuel to air ratio will be automatically determined and set by the carburetor based upon various factors such as altitude. Custom Cockpit Systems and Gauges for the ultimate in realism taken far beyond what is available by default. Inertia starters: Start these big beautiful engines by the book using authentic inertia wheel energizing and engagment Feathering props and air starts: Custom physics allows for realistic feathering and air starts without using the starter Deep cockpit lighting: Flood, Flourescent, and gauge lighting modeled Dual speed superchargers: Proper supercharger physics and each engine can independently run in either high or low blower New slip and ball code from the Accu-Sim T-6: Enjoy smooth, custom physics in this critical gauge during turning maneuvers Authentic flight stability: The Connie was known for being a little less stable in pitch than other aircraft, which requires a little more finess and attention Piston combustion engine modeling Real-world conditions affect system conditions, including engine temperatures. Fully click-able cockpits: with authentically working systems and gauges. 3D Lights 'M' (built directly into the model.) Pure 3D Instrumentation. - Natural 3D appearance with exceptional performance. - Smooth movements. Fire Extinguisher system with fully functioning overheard panel and controls. Ground Power Unit (GPU) to power systems with engines off and not drain the battery. Cabin pressurization system controls. You control the target altitude and the rate of pressure change and the system authentically displays and manages cabin pressure. Three different liveries: including TWA, BOAC, and a C-69 cargo paint A2A specialized bump mapping and specular lighting on all models. Crew Reports pop-up 2D panel keeps important information easily available Custom Navigator's map: accessible via keystroke or the Navigators station. Manage temperatures with engine cowl flaps and oil cooler flaps High temperatures can adversely affect engine performance, Serious overheating can cause scoring of cylinder head walls including ultimate failure if warnings are ignored and overly abused. Spark plugs can clog and eventually foul if engines are allowed to idle too low for too long. Throttling up an engine with oil-soaked spark plugs can help clear them out Experience authentic asymmetrical drag when operating various flap systems in flight.
