  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

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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."

  8. 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

  9. 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

  10. 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!

  12. 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. I went to the chemist today and asked the assistant "what kills the Corona Virus?" She replied to me "Ammonia C

  17. Chinese citizen asked for his opinion on how his government had performed handling the virus... "I can't say." - - - Coronavirus arrives in the US. Mexico: So, about that wall.... - - - I know a great joke about Corona Virus, you probably won't get it though. - - - Seen on-line: We are 11 days into self-isolation and it is really upsetting to see my wife standing at the living room window gazing aimlessly with tears running down her cheeks. I've considered letting her in many times but rules are rules. - - -

  18. Day 9 of the quarantine: My wife called out from the other room and asked if I ever get a stabbing pain in my chest like someone has a voodoo doll of me and is stabbing it. I replied, "No." She responded, "How about now?"

  19. 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".

  30. Hi, I only have 2017 found at this link https://app.box.com/s/wmokmewkfjwyoaaviniu5jr4h3b97sr9 and it only includes the flight situation files, one through five that get dumped into the C:\Users\YOUR NAME\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files. Missing is all the other stuff you need to make a flight plan so it won't do you much good unless you can figure it out using the archive threads. I always wished they made all the MEBAR flight files available in the MEBAR section of the home page so they could all be revisited instead of just the threads talking about them. Hopefully others can h

  34. The media is reporting the ratio of males to females who are getting the Chinese plague. Apparently the other 57 genders are immune. Need another reason to avoid shaking hands? Remember that many people are out of toilet paper. Seen on-line... “To those turning in your neighbors and local businesses — you did the Reich thing.”

  35. 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.
