    I am older than dirt but very young at heart (to the point of my own demise). I hold a PPL back from 1972 and have been recently reaquainted with flight simming. The most recent I owned was FS2004 so the new technology is baffling! Be gentle...

  2. xplane X-PLANE Geniuses

    Hi, I am considering X-Plane (since it is now ok to say it) . My question is this.... I was reading about Dovetails new sim and the minimum requirements. It states that you need a video card with a bare minimum of a 970 and I just upgraded to a 960 recently and can no longer spend money on this hobby so forget Dovetail and FSX SE which I am currently running fully open. Does 64 bit take double the usage of 32 or are the developers just going to keep raising the minimums out of my dollar range. Is x-plane 11 a hog or can I work with it? I don't want a sim that I have to power back on and lose the graphics, what's the use?

    Thank you my Brother!
  7. Hello, I am considering streaming in the near future with my ASUS Laptop. I am NOT computer savy but I do know that it is possible to stream with a laptop just not sure which card would be best for my rig. I'm currently running an i7 4660 @2.5g with 16g ram. It runs wide open graphics with a fully loaded steam setup (FSX SE). Running all ORBX products with several add-ons wide open with no problems including no overheating. I am wanting to stream with that setup but not a huge fan of OBS. I want a capture card..Thank you for any help and suggestions......GG

  13. tour TOUR: WWII Airfields

    Gentlemen (& Lady), I posted this gem on Discord: "The Hanger". If you enjoy flying by the numbers as I do then here is a link to all the original WWII Aircraft in each theater. Even if you don't care for the realism, it is a good read, also each manual is available for free printing. http://aviationshoppe.com/at6-snj-harvard-documents-manuals-a-56.html
