.....Piss on FS9[img]


Huh

Naughy naughty Chuck....    FS9 used to be a good friend of yours, didnt it?  Taught you alot....  Get that grimmace off your face...!

Also..   If we name parts on an engine things such as 'cylinder 128' for sparkplug 7, or cylinder 44 for flywheel, box 143 is of course a carburetor, then when we go to edit parts, it will be much more 'fun' to try to remember which cylinder, box, and spline/line is what.  (Names are always a good thing, especially if on a team and someone else takes the ball for mapping textures, etc).

Note on cloning an entire engine assembly.  Link all of its parts to the engine block or crankshalft.  Then you can move them all in one faile swoop, (what ever that means).  Also, if you clone them via Edit/Clone (on top 'worded' toolbar), then the parts of the engine maintain all their centers and Gizmo locations and angles.  If though you select all of your engine and hold Shift down and with mouse, 'slide' a copy out of that one, then all Gizmos will relocate to the 'mass center' of the cluster, making it difficult for future editing of parts.

And of course, linking..   I think linking is still a good thing.  Why not.  Such as with engines, keeps it easy to locate parts on an assembly.  Not everything has to be linked now, thank goodness, but somethings are good to be linked...   (pilot parts, so you can hide all of him, panel and its face parts, so you can hide that, move it, etc).

Bill

That's great news! The more that other's abandon FS9 development, the more I make!  Cool

Thank God Ron & Eaglesoft didn't abandon FS9 completely, as I just received a check 3x more than usual for last month's sales, most of which came from my Citation II Expansion Pack for the original FS9 release...  Grin

Jodry, you're barred...  Grin

But hang on one minute aren't you overlooking one important thing? .... FSX is PANTS!!!  Roll Eyes

I fly around my locality and it looks like the Sahara, rather than the Garden of England, it flickers, jerks, crashes, by the time it's finished loading, I'm bored and go off and do something else anyway, autogen is so random it's unusable which is a bonus really as it also slows everything down to treacle running through a hose pipe and the pilots may blink but nothing flies any better.

But......... the visuals are stunning.

I'll put my tuppence in the charity box on the way out...  Wink

I must admist that the scenery (which is a major component to simming) is just not there in FSX.  When I got FS9, the scenery that came with it was amazing.  I remember flying for a week in the Cessna Caravan over the rockies, then another month in Alaska.  Why?  Just looking at the amazing mountains.  They were stunning.....    In FSX, its like some have a stripe over them with grass, and to each side is desert.  (Check the mountain at my home airport, just west of KDVT.  It has a golf course going over the top of it.  When I saw that in my flight after installing my newest graphics card, I shut of FSX and booted up FS9.  Truth).

But.....   The beauty of freedom is freedom of choice.  I happen to like FS9 more then FSX.  But thats me and I am glad that others are quite happy with FSX.  I will continue to support FS9 for a while. 

Fr. Bill, I am only supporting FS9 presently and 'officially'.  Sales are quite good, (thank the Lord).  I dont think its wise 'yet' to abandon FS9 projects.  If you can easily flip a model from one to the other, you have two complete markets instead of one.

......................and no.  I do not hate FSX.  I dont care for its terrain nor high use of resources.  I love;
*  Car traffic and ship traffic
*  The Compiler
*  The 'look around feature'
*  Head Latency
*  Extreme real time rendering of materials such as reflections, chrome, and the oceans waves
*  The lower limit of Vertice distances for smaller parts making in the VC

But the terrain isnt finished and I see that the team have already abandoned updates, so I guess its done...

I dont remember being blown away with FS9 "RTM" once i had replaced my ground textures , clouds , Airport Environment and autogen  textures, envronment map , sun and moon corona , sundown and sun up sky textures...
oh ya my nordic tree collection .... Git My Drift ?

So far my complaints were limited to the ground textures , they are all replaced ... every other scenery element
is an improvement... and if i dont like it ...well i can get it to vaporise leaving a smoldering rubble ... a few clicks in the missions editor and switch to the Lancaster MKIII and load an Earthquake bomb ... poof end of story

...tis true.

It's only since I add VFR photo scenery England and Wales and VFR Terrain mesh that home started to look like home, before then believe it or not it looked like ...erm... the Sahara.

However when I unwrapped '98 I went... Oh WOW!, 2000 Oh WOW!, 2k2 Oh WOW!, FS9 Oh WOW!

Unwrapping FSX I went.....Oh... Lips Sealed

I do love the SDK though... Cool

lololol....   Grin

What you need with that is a scenery bomb crater mesh that appears where the bomb goes off and it stays there for 6 months then 'auto-disappears'.
