  1. History buff's might also like to check this out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dogger_Bank_incident
  2. Using the OPT to place scenery(ranger station makes a sweet place to hang your hat), you can make your own home away from home.
  3. Glad to be down and safe in this kind of weather, Beech D18S Taking off ahead of the storm in a B757.
  4. Always happy to help others get started in mission building. Sometimes the hardest part is getting the OPT(ObjectPlacementTool) to show up. First hint, start with a simple mission and use FSXMissionEditor.
  5. Thanks for the help Martyn, much appreciated. Brett
  6. Well thank you for that, I had tested the Ctrl+E startup and it did indeed work as intended and I now know what everyone means when calling it an F-Lite. The startup procedures are just to much fun(addicting) and it's always nice to learn something new. The manual, although daunting for a first timer, was very well done and easy to understand. Had me up and flying in a acceptable amount of time. Kudos for providing a sweet sounding, great handling, well documented and beautifully crafted aircraft. I guess I need to post my question about the HSI WPT mode button on your F-Lite forum or in tech
  7. It certainly is a nice aircraft and sounds good too. I have never flown one of these detailed payware type planes and found the instructions a bit daunting at first but have completed the tutorial flight that was included. I followed the instructions for the overhead panel and have somewhat figured out that fancy FMS thingee. Need to do it a bunch more times so I can instill all this stuff in my mental/muscle memory. Seems like alot of work but was more realistic than the default startups and enjoyed my maiden flight. There were still a few clickable items on the overhead panel that were neve
  8. When my flight simmulator grows up, I want it to look just like that.
  9. They look like photo's. Very nice.

    Hi, I am UKJim :)

Hints: I Pause the mission before clicking the semicolan key, so when restarting the flight it will be in pause mode. This gives you time to get set up to start flying.
  11. I couldn't even guess how many tries it took me to finally finish that darn mission but wish I had a quarter for each one. Thanks for bring up a flash from the past. (because I never went back and tried to do it again)
  12. I'm always amazed at how good dancers are. They make it look easy, that is untill you try to do it yourself and learn the hard way that easy it is not. Although I do get my dance on, sorta like that, when I am waiting at the single stall bar bathrooms.
  13. Pretty funny. At the expense of sounding stupid, what was the reason for screen in screen box in the upper right corner for, the dancing impaired?
  14. I hope I'm wrong but I smell a scam. I really need to learn how to be more optimistic and trusting. I am happy that jetranger found a aircraft designer that he does like though.
  15. Just want to add that this jetranger guy was just banned from the FlightSim forum for going on these rants. He does not take the time to thoroughly read the full details provided and goes off half cocked about the designers having the problem. Maybe he should stick to PlayStation games if he does not want to invest the time it takes to improve upon a basic flight simulator program and enjoy addons that folks have spent alot of time and energy making. I'm sorry but I believe that the freeware and payware designers try there best to make everything work for all the different systems out there an
  16. Congrats on the winning shot, a real beauty. You really did capture the mood of the area and the flight.
  17. Learn something new everyday, thanks for the compatibility tips. I was clicking on the menu bar on the site like it was an elevator button and it would all of a sudden magically work.
  18. Thank you sir, it was in response to your post and I meant to mention this but was having trouble with getting it to stick in this thread last night. Must have rewrote it 15 times. It is indeed a fine aircraft and a pleasure to fly low and slow. Big thanks to our top dog for his help.

  20. Clever, intelligent and hilarious. I'm glad he made it through the tough times. He was always a favorite when growing up and we all always tried to imitate that great snicker.

    Ha...no need too do that. Although I might show it to my wife and tell her it's all your fault that I spent more money on "My silly hobby".

    Thanks for the reply. I have purchased a few AC's in the past and most are pretty sweet, unfortunately they are so detailed that my frame rates take a major hit on my low end laptop. I will take a look at the Aerosoft model though, would like to add some of your textures, they are really good. You are gonna cost me a fortune with wanting to use your repaints. :biggrin:

    You sure do some excellent repaints and fast too. Does anyone know of a freeware link to this aircraft for FSX with a VC panel? I might consider a payware version but am low on funds. I did find one once with just the 2D panel and it flew real nice but I am so use to the VC's that I ended up deleting it from my hanger. I have trouble with flying the 2D panel, I'm a late bloomer when it comes to flight sim's and started with FSX. Appreciate any help with this.
