After a bit, I've finally arrived at Montreal and started my approach. If I were in a 737, I'd be a bit upset at this angle, but a Beechcraft Model 18 should be fine

It wasn't a bad landing by any means, but I was wondering why I had some performance trouble until I looked down and realized I still had my mixture leaned for higher altitudes. Eh, live and learn, I guess

What's this haze nonsense? I wanted to go on a scenic flight of the St. Lawrence! Also, this is a VFR flight plan, so this could be a bad omen

It's not so bad I feel the need to go IFR or cancel the flight, but it's not great, either

Attached: 20180322151324_1.jpg (1920x1080, 337K)

The haze broke up after a bit, but it was replaced by turbulence. The air over Quebec is quite disturbed

why dont you turn on the lights?

Forgot to delete the self-(You) on that last post

As I'm getting close to La Cite du Quebec, the haze returns. I had initially wanted to do an orbit of the city to get a shot of the Chateau Frontenac and the old city walls, but a gray pall over everything sort of defeats the purpose

My constant nemesis on this flight, the haze, broke up a bit just as I entered my final approach. Too late to rev back up now, though, I'm committed to this landing

The cabin lighting on the module is awful, to the point where the gauges are unreadable

Okay, I could have aborted the landing, but it turned out to be the best one of the trip, so far. I got this thing to come to a graceful halt after less than 2,000 feet of runway, and didn't bounce once. It helped that there wasn't a crosswind, too

Odin's beard these people are the largest collective of money grubbing cunts I've ever encountered. I can understand quality, highly detailed models or industry relevant training software and such being payware but every man and his dog is selling whatever 3rd rate garbage they shit out in MSpaint and nobody bats an eyelid. Sometimes you even have to pay to access a website just to look at some of this shit. (Not that I do mind you but in the course of trying to mod my FSX into a 1950's retro airliner sim I've been perusing some of these sites and I'm fucking astounded.)

Also, why are 95% of the youtube videos on FSX uploaded by munted Brazilians who insist on dubbing shitty techno music over the top. It's fucking ear cancer.

Where did you get this sweet Beech 18 from? (I assume it's a Beech 18?

Oh I have no intention of paying for any of it, I was just registering my utter shock and confusion.

I've had FSX installed for 12 years, what is this fucking bullshit you're talking about?

>Here, join this website for $15 a month to access them
what FUCKING scam website is this?
>Then pay is $5-$50 per aircraft
are you paying for FUCKING freeware? JESUS CHRIST
>Then pay us a few hundred for a scenery overhaul that crashes the game and another $50 for these directX fixes to solve that.
you need to upgrade your potato
>Oh and you'll need another $50 transaction for this weather plugin.
If you're talking Active Sky or REX, yeah, that's screwy.... but again... 12 year old software
>And subscribe to our live atc for $30 per month
never heard of it, sounds gay
>But you'll need to buy my $20 app to make all of the above work together
more fucking bullshit, just learn how your sim works


Someone can't into reading comprehension:

>Oh I have no intention of paying for any of it, I was just registering my utter shock and confusion.

just get xblen
Its probably cheaper to build a rig that can run it properly than to turn that ancient microshit game into something decent.

Nah, I'm downloading a wnole bunch of shit from Calclassic which needs FSX/FS9. I can't make a comfy 1950's sim with eggsplain

yes, and they're mostly scam websites charging idiots for freeware software, in clear violation of the EULA for those mods

god damn you Veeky Forums faggots are retarded
here, let me hold your hand for you, jesus fucking christ

you have the same problem I have, you have the wrong simulator for this. I have a boxed copy of FS2004 ready, but I'm going to dive in on my next custom PC build

I'm gobsmacked, there's even some donkey here who wants shekels for his shader libraries. Oy vey!

good luck :-)

thx for the cbfsim link tho, I hadn't found that.

does fs2004 work on windows 10?

It does for me :^)

It came with a cheap-ass Steam module called Discover USA. It's literally just a pile of flightplans, but it has a nice plane to fly them with.

I'd not pay full price, though, I'd wait for a sale.

Yeah I have the old school version that came on disc, nvm. There used to be a Beech 18 that flew the local route where I lived in the 80's and 90's. Every time I flew I'd hope it would be on the Beech but I always got a bloody Cessna 402. Sometimes it was parked next to it on the apron just to dick tease me.

9 BTR's from the Angolan 25th Inf. Brigade as well as 2 Infantry platoons are in charge of defending this sector and hindering a mechanized SAR infantry advance.

Attached: 20180322200429_1.jpg (2560x1440, 518K)

Off to a bad start, Vines' BTR came under sights and crosshairs of atleast 6 SAR Ratels after another BTR in the company drew attention by moving to take position inside the small plantation.

GTOS, Operation Hooper.

The SAR supported by UNITA militia sliced through my entrenched company with relative ease, many BTR's were destroyed without knowing the Ratels were within only 50 meters of them

The fighting escalates to a chaotic close-range bush fight. My infantry are dumping all their magazines into the other side of the plantation

The platoon commander's AFV is destroyed in the plantation, the SAR Ratels directed a huge volume of fire into the plantation once they were close enough to realise 3 BTR's are hiding inside of it.

Attached: 20180322202652_1.jpg (2560x1440, 1.31M)

And that was about the end of it, just as the first SAR Ratel rolled around the small farm most of the Angolans dropped arms or floored it or met a shitty death in the hot, tropical African jungles below the equator.. 3 BTR's from another company nearby tried to counter-attack the area but got annihilated without any effect near a road-side, by a single Ratel. A single Ratel was lost during the skirmish to an RPG-7.

Who here has tried bombing in the Mig-21 recently? Clusters don't seem to be working or are working very poorly.

Let me explain, they appear to have raised the minimum release ceiling
before clusters could easily work during level flight at about ~800 feet.
Now ~1500 feet doesn't give them time to deploy

Anyone else?

pretty good, tanksim user
I spent all day ignoring my homework. I finished reading how to fly the Fiat G.18V for flight sim. Then I watched another stream by the user that is super knowledgeable about the North East Corridor, and was bitching about how broken TSW was.
This time, he turned off all cab signals and safety equipment, and ignored all speed limits and signals on the route. The result is a super comfortable drive without going too slow or fast. It's also fascinating to see his encyclopedic knowledge of the route. He knows every signal, speed limit for every track, and curve of the route by memory.
Seriously, watch this:
I've always wondered how I was supposed to drive this route with no HUD, since the speed changes so often without warning. His knowledge is the answer.
>then I looked up what I had to do for school, realized I have a shit ton of reading I have to do (150+ pages) and the two papers I have to write next week, fuck me

>he actually bumps

Bumbs are life.

Wtf lmao
Xplane 11 takes 50-60gb too if you have all world sceneries
And looks and is way better than fsx
How does it take 50 GB lmao

It's all in the shaders, my man.

Cockpits look ugly in fsx imo tho

Again, shaders are the most important thing.

Seasons greetings, brothers. Anybody here have experience with Track IR and can help me a little bit? I want to translate leaning (rolling) my head into pressing keys, Q and E specifically. I feel I could make this work rigidly for STALKER and even Call of Duty.

this also tickles my fancy. posting funny shit until some fucker answers. if I could lean in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. using my TIR I would poo my pants

My inclination is no. My understanding is games have to support TrackIR, or the TrackIR devs have to program support for that game themselves.

Actually I just figured it out, you can do it by pasting this code into FreePie


It works pretty well apparently, about to test it out in CODWW2.
