Up and away

 

My interest in flying started when I as a child used to play around and in the airplanes at the old Malmoe airport, Bulltofta. And we were flying Cessnas a lot. I wanted to be a pilot but life took another path.

After many years out of the fly zone I have found my way back to simulated flying. I have been flying around the world since my first software on the Commodore 64. I have over 50 different types of flight software for all kinds of machines.

Sometimes i do some driving and boating in games and virtual worlds. And i create ships, airports, trucks and all kind of vehicles for simulation. You can download some of them on the site.

After many tests to try and figure out how to use flight simulator 2004 without the program crashing on finals I think I found a way.

 

FS9 is not compatible with Win 7 and I just could not use it when I never knew if it would crash or not so measures had to be taken.

 

I found a old computer and did a new install of Win XP and FS9. I installed the same add on scenery and my fav Flight1 ATR-72 500. A complicated plane for any computer to run. But it works in XP and not Win 7. I can still crash the FS software if I open and close a lot of windows. Suspect memory leak somewhere.

 

If I keep to the 3D cockpit and open the windows I need once it is really good. I have made many flights now and no crashes.

 

But I wanted to use my Win 7 machine to so I bought Wideview again. I used to have a license but I have no idea where it is. It is a great piece of software. I use it to run a second copy of FS9 on my work machine. It makes FS9 run in slew mode and that do not crash the software. So here I have two side views. Great for taxi and looking out when flying. I cant see other VATSIM traffic on the side views. For that I have to use FSX I suspect and I have to buy a second copy of it. That will be my next project as soon as I get my wings on VATSIM.

Today I was doing my usual flights. Morning from ESSV to ESSB and afternoon back again.

 

This morning FS9 crashed to desktop twice. So I did a hunt for bugs and it seems that the flight computer on my Flight1 ATR-72 crash FS on Win 7.

 

So I decided to do the afternoon flight without the FMC and as the ATR-72 have no GPS it would be some real flying.

 

I filed my flight plan and went to work. But when I logged in to VATSIM I saw that I was going to fly in controlled airspace for the first time. Not really prepared for that.

 

It is just to do it and it went so and so but I learned a lot. As I have FSinn on a second computer and I did not get voice to work there was a lot moving around in the cockpit. Fortunately not much traffic so I did get a lot of help from ATC. Happy about that. It is not that easy with all the software. I can do the flying but the rest is new to me. It is totally different from the automatic ATC in FS. But more fun.

 

And FS did not crash. And I got a voice to work in the end so next time I hope for better flying.

  • ROMANVM that’s a great build.

    This is a great build of ancient Rome. Just walking around made me very impressed.

     

    Well it’s a boys playground. (Why don’t girls have places like this?).

     

    I think everything is in place and they have their own website.

    Time to get those male avatars out and go for a spin because this place really make a builder cry..

  • Constantly exploring.

    I do some exploring in Second life every day. This place is http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Retrospect/198/170/33

     

    Just checking in and checking out new places. SL still alive and kicking.

  • Started working with the Bento avatar

    Today I made a small step for me. I started to work with the new Bento avatar. It was just a test to see how it works and what you need to do to set it up. As you can see I have not done any texture work on it yet but I will. It looks good, have to start looking at animations next and texture.

  • Beta testing MyWorld on Steam.

    Just got a beta test key for MyWorld from the GameCreators.

    I am building some stuff and checking out the game system.

     

    You can build your own levels of game play and play them with your friends. Or just try out the pre build games.

     

    It is very simple and easy to create. As I have been using Game Creators products for many years i wish them all the best.

    Still use Darkbasic for prototyping. Nothing like it.
