  1. What a night I think, I'm going to lose my drivers license and all just because of a stupid police officer... The conversation went like this, when I got pulled over in my truck: Officer: "License and registration, please, I think you are drunk!" Me: "I assure you, I did not drink anything." Officer: "Ok, let's do a little test! Imagine driving in the dark on a highway at night, when you see two lights in the distance. What is this?" Me: "A car." Officer:"Of course! But which one? A Mercedes, an Audi or a Ford?" Me:"I have no idea!" Offi

  2. Living in the Golden Horseshoe region of Southern Ontario allows me to fly over Niagara Falls fairly often. I put this video together to illustrate the flight rules and procedures that must be followed with a few scenic points of interest. Video was captured with a GoPro mounted to the underside of the right wing.

  3. So this morning the Mutley Crew convened to try out multiplayer as we fly together every weekend and wanted to set the sim up in advance. The results were very positive, we created a private group and set real world traffic and ai off so we wouldn't be interrupted. Everything else, weather, time etc was real world. After an initial learning phase of around 30 minutes, to establish the best settings for the group on a shake down flight from London City to Heathrow, we decided on a calmer flight (for those of you in the UK today will know why!) in southern Spain., the experience was incre

  4. So, a passenger taps his taxi driver on the shoulder. The driver shits himself, swerves, nearly hits a bus, and stops inches from a shop window. "F**k me, you're jumpy aren't you?" says the passenger, "I only tapped your shoulder." "Sorry," the cabbie replies. "It's my first day. I've been driving a hearse for the last 20 years."

  7. For anyone who may be having connectivity problems with the new sim, it could be down to your router not having the correct ports open. You may have been through this before with FS2004, FSX, or P3D. We covered this topic when the old FSX Gamespy multiplayer service was terminated and we all had to connect directly. Jess wrote a guide at the time here .. Here's a brief summary. Before you can forward a port you need to know the following things: Your router's IP address. Your FS machine's IP address. The TCP and UDP ports that need to be forwarded. IP address

  8. Is this guy serious!!! The issues with his review: claims to review it thoroughly yet misses the obvious fault with the camera view settings...a minor camera.cfg error, by the way; fails to acknowledge the "cold and dark" engine start is also a problem with some default aircraft, therefore, not necessarily Carenado's or the model's fault; ignores the simple fact that flight simmers may want a Cessna 182T Skylane, so stating it has nothing over the default Cessnas is nonsensical and totally subjective; the control sensitivity is also evident in other default aircra

  9. I hate change notes that are written by a marketing department. "Significant FPS drop when using Simconnect should no longer affect the experience" Does that mean the bug is fixed or not? What does "affect the experience" mean? is that the same bs as "reduces the appearance of wrinkles"? Closing your eyes reduces the appearance of falling off a roof...... Doesn't stop you hitting the ground though!

  11. I will start by saying that I am not one who normally jumps into a new product on Release Day 1.....but after 14 years (ignoring the aborted MS Flight product), the anticipated hype of a next generation Microsoft flight sim, the very positive reviews from reputable flight sim community contributors, and outright peer group pressure, I didn't have much choice. I have been a Prepar3D convert in that time but for the purposes of this post let's just consider that an extension of MS FSX. Not having any experience with Xbox or other MS online product purchasing, the purchasing process was no o

A man walks into a bar and goes up to the bartender and says "I'll have a Corona please, hold the virus" 8. If I get quarantined for two weeks with my wife and I die. I can assure you it was not the virus that killed me. 7. With all this talk of Corona Virus, the people who make sanitising gel are rubbing their hands together. 6.

  18. I was in a long line at 7:45 am today at the grocery store. They open at 8:00 with one hour designated for seniors only. A young man came from the parking lot and tried to cut in at the front of the line, but an old lady beat him back into the parking lot with her cane. He returned and tried to cut in again but an old man punched him in the gut, then kicked him to the ground and rolled him away. As he approached the line for the 3rd time he said, "If you don't let me unlock the door, you'll never get in there."

Donald Trump was having afternoon tea with Queen Elizabeth in Buckingham Palace, outlining his plans for the future of the USA."As I'm the President" said Trump, "I'm thinking of changing how the country is referred to, and I'm thinking that it should be a Kingdom", to which the Queen replies, "I'm sorry Mr Trump, but to be a Kingdom, you have to have a King in charge - and you're not a King."Donal Trump thought a while and then said: "How about a Principality then?", to which the Queen replied "Again, to be a Principality you have to be a Prince - and you're not a Prince, Mr Trump".

  27. Much has been commented on the A320neo in different forums, and in some instances, not without good reason. How bad is it really.....I thought it was time to go and find out. Now, I am an A320 family numpty. Whilst I have some of the 3rd party detailed add-on aircraft for legacy flight sims, it is the one major commercial airliner I have neither spent a lot of time in, nor mastered. So, which ever way this was going to go, it was going to be interesting. I had just flown the Cessna CitationJet CJ4 from Queenstown (NZQN) to Adelaide (YPAD).

  34. A policeman was rushed to the hospital with an inflamed appendix.. The doctors operated and advised him that all was well, however, the policeman kept feeling something pulling at the hairs in his crotch. Worried that it might be a second surgery and the doctors hadn't told him about it, he finally got enough energy to pull his hospital gown up enough so he could look at what was making him so uncomfortable. Taped firmly across his pubic hair and private parts were three wide strips of adhesive tape, the kind that doesn't come off easily --- if at all. Written on the ta

  38. Sorry, I'm self-isolating and can't go on your guilt trip. After I'm out of isolation, I'm pretty sure I can find another reason not to. Maybe nature is telling us not to eat bats and snakes and pangolins and to not lie to other nations about infectious diseases.
