  1. Looked so pretty I created a flight plan and flew it myself. Great area for low and slow valley flying. Thanks for the heads up to a great spot for sightseeing. Excellent pic's.
  2. Due to a lousy PC I wasn't going to enter the competition anymore but I was flying Panzerfodder's Victoria Island trip and just liked the view, so I snapped a shot. I said to myself, should I enter it anyway, answer, why not? De Havilland DH82a Tiger Moth(One of my all time favorite aircraft) climbing out of Tofino(CYAZ).
  3. Congrats, beautiful shot. New it was a contender as soon as I saw it.
  4. Encore, Encore. Nice job. Is it OK that I giggled a bit during it?
  5. Ok, thanks. I kinda figured that was the problem. Surprising though.
  6. Great information that I have already saved to my hints and tips file. Thanks.
  7. Thanks for the reply. The free downloads were full AC, and I used there checkout like normal. I also created accounts with them first minus the credit info which they ask for only when doing the final checkout except in the case of free items. I use PayPal for purchases and do not give my credit card number out to the companies directly. In this case, they want me to create an account first(which includes the credit#) before going to the checkout section to have the AC sent to me. Maybe they do not use PayPal. In this day and age with our information being stolen from supposedly secure places
  8. I have never bought anything from there site before and filled out the survey but baulked at having to give my credit info(before checkout) to someone for a free item. If I liked the free gift then it would give me an idea about there products and then, more than likely, I would then buy a product from the site and at that point give them the credit card information. I have purchased items from FSAddon and CaptSim in the past after checking out a free download from them and they never required credit card info for the free items. I sent them an email explaining this but have not heard from the
  9. Glad the pilot is Ok. Also hate to see an old aircraft get damaged, not enough of them left. You can definitely hear the engine cutting out, not a good thing in a turn so low to the ground.
  10. Love the postcard, great job. You guys are doing great, I on the other hand took some really bad time hits on this, my first rally(I completed it already). Keep up the good work, I'm root'in for ya. Brett
  11. You are so correct , thanks for the correction. I was thinking of jets at the time and spoke/wrote out of turn. I should of added the old DC3 instead. Would still take the Turboprop over the jets although the sound sure can be penetrating to the eardrums with a headset on. On some AC's I even need to adjust the sound slider a bit. So I do not make any enemies here, I would also like to add that I do enjoy the big jets but we did only get three picks.
  12. Well, I do not have any fancy scenery(just default on a 7 year old laptop, sliders set low) to make these screenshots purrty but these are a few of my favorites, de Havilland DH60 Gipsy Moth (for those wind in your face adventures) Cessna C172 Skyhawk (beefed up the engine for a bit more speed and don't mind if I scratch it) LOCKHEED L-188 (for those long hauls, love the sound of piston engines)

    Welcome

    Hope y'all enjoy the mission. The upload was my way of saying thanks for a great site that I have taken advantage of many times already. I am flying in my first rally that has been mentioned here(GARSA) and have downloaded the airport plates provided by Mr Allard, thanks for the use. I also wish Dai and the Mutley Team much luck in their South American flights. May the wind be always at your back.

    Welcome

    I learned how to build missions at one of those "other" sites and it was the natural place to upload my mission there. I would be happy to look into uploading it here since you guys are such a friendly bunch.

  16. I thought I found the Holy Grail when I found this program. Use it all the time. Kudos Tim, you brought flight simming to a better level. :001_th_smiles76:
  17. Great for Sim use but as far as real world use, I hope they(Commercial flights) still bring the paper as a backup, they don't break or run out of power.
  18. Thanks Dai, I flew one already by making a PlanG flight plan(Thanks, Tim A). Should have saved it and uploaded it here. Sorry. I plan on flying some of them in the future and will do just that.
  19. Hi, Would someone be willing to help me out with creating these flight plans. I copied the info supplied in the quote box and pasted into my notepad. Saved it as a UTF-8 with a .PLN at the end of the Title (Flight 1 Isle...) and it shows as a PLN in my documents folder. What it will not do is show as a flight plan when trying to load in a flight. A normal flight plan shows up like this: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <SimBase.Document Type="AceXML" version="1,0"> <Descr>AceXML Document</Descr> <FlightPlan.Flig
  20. Just had the pleasure of beta testing ddavid's Secret Island mission. Great mission with a great premise that everyone should give a try when completed/uploaded. In the mean time, how about some screen shots from this exciting mission. Wow, a secret island Hmmmm, interesting Made it back safe and sound

    My first Mission

    Glad you liked it. It looks alot nicer in your screenshots than on my default FSX, w/low settings, that I run on my old laptop. The dialogs are synthesized voices that I got with the Natural Reader software package. It is not as good as real dialogs but much easier to do, especially when I am constantly changing them as I build the mission. Then again, it is free. : ) I messed up my reward conditions because the beta test reward was only supposed to show up for the beta testers that helped with the mission and was only to show up when flying to another airport after mission success. I should
  22. I couldn't find your mission anywhere and wondered if you ever posted it anywhere? If not, I would be happy to beta test it for you.
  23. Hi everyone, Just found your site and wondered if you would be interested in my first mission(freeware). You will fly a Bell JetRanger in Virgina, U.S. You can download it here: http://www.box.net/shared/togjl41nfu Hope you enjoy it.
