    Any Terramaxx News?

    You're right. I forgot about that. Nice sceneries btw.

    Any Terramaxx News?

    I really like Terramaxx. It's simple and improves the scenery. I know Xplane has its limits but there's always room for improvement : 100% compatibility with the TBM900. Really, somebody has to do it. The bump mapping is nice, especially at dusk. But I would like it to be more subtle and better integrated with the tile. Eg. Depressed roads and heightened hedges. Little less reddish in the fall (European falls are gray and muddy). A bit milder winter, more gray and brownish tints. The current mild winter is a very deep winter and the deep winter is the next ice age. Limit the repetition at high flight levels, without sacrificing the detail at low levels. Maybe by making use of the bump mapping at bit more. An option to have high density forests. I have allpilots hd forest patch installs and I think Terramaxx is overriding it. The hd forests also suppress the repetition in areas such as Germany and Scandinavia. Urbanmaxx TM is a hidden gem for IFR. Does it have bumpmapping? If not, it could really benefit from it.

    TBM900 A/P Heading

    Got the same problem departing EDDN on Vatsim. Cannot engage the A/P, plane is banking left constantly. Removing FlyWithLua had no effect. Disregard. I am a tool..... forgot to put the AP switch on.... Log.txt TBM900_Log.txt

    TBM900 and Terramax conflict

    Aha. I forgot to tell that X-Plane hanged whilst showing the TerraMaxx dialog and SkyMaxx registration dialog. I had to force quit it after a while.

    TBM900 and Terramax conflict

    I did have some problems installing SkyMaxx Pro 4.7. Upon starting Xplane after the install I got the Gizmo registration dialog and and a Terramaxx dialog in the lower left of the screen saying something about reinstalling "default textures". I solved the problem by temporarily disabling TerraMaxx, registering SkyMaxx and then enabling TerraMaxx again.

    IXEG 737 Progress Update - March 12th

    Jan, maybe a stupid question, but I was wondering if a professional pilot still can be immersed in a desktop flightsim. Or to rephrase my question, with your hands-on experience on the 737 how do you perceive the model you made? As a "mini-me" of the real thing?

    Count your blessings when you've a tester with deep systems knowledge and a large stamina. Happy bug hunting

    Clear. Thanks for the answer. From a physics standpoint LNAV and VNAV are indeed reasonable straight forward. Of course when you go outside the envelope everything becomes very very random. We see this in the real world also, with occasionally desastreus results. I was more thinking about the messy "human" side. The legal/company/pilot thingie rules as "when i do this, i want to see that". In my line of work (healthcare systems) they rarely add up nice together.

    If a simulated FMC already has a lot of edge cases then the real thing probably has exponentially more situations to handle. And that in 1980's (?) embedded system tech instead of desktop systems with load of Ghz's en Mb's. Btw. I wonder if those FMC's can be ever deterministic implemented.

    Interesting and off topic, did you consider ZeroMQ? Since IIRC MQTT handles only messaging (very well).

    Since when did you dump Lua and start using Lisp?

    Cessna Citation and other things.

    I checked the interior photos i took during the trips. I haven't found one which show the travel distance clearly. I can bundle them and PM them to you if you'd like.

    Cessna Citation and other things.

    Looks good. Been awhile since I was inside a Citation, but I remember the seats also slide sideways towards the aisle. Would be a nifty touch but I guess right down to the bottom of the 'nice to have, never implement' list.

    The Best Aircrafts of 2015

    I bought some models this year, some were good but on hindsight i didn't have the time to delve into them (FF757, JAR330). Some seemed great but where, in my opinion, a bit meh (EMB110 and the RWDesigns DHC6). Last summer i bought the Beaver from Soulmade. It is nice and well crafted but my personal plane of the year is the Aerobask Epic1000. I got it with the bonus points of the orgstore, not expecting much of it but it really was a pleasant surprise.
