Sim Builder's Registry

Recommended Posts

Good day all, Alkit had a great idea with documenting all the flight sim builders in the world. At the same time, I have been working on a web site to hopefully automate the process. It's a web site, where you can log information about your project, and a running tally is kept of all entries. There is also a search box where you can select to view only specific information. This site is not only meant to track builders, but also companies, software, electronics, etc. This way, the site can work as a simply history book of who, what, when, where and how our hobby progressed. Everything should be functional on the site except the log in page. If you need to change (or add) something, simply e-mail it to me and I will add it manually until I can get the log in script done. I welcome all feedback, as now is the opportunity to get new functions quickly implemented. Please register your companies too, so this can be somewhat of a resource to new sim builders as well.HFB Registryhttp://www.t-b-x.com/prather/registry/Regards,Roberthttp://www.The777Project.comhttp://www.SimSpares.comhttp://www.ProMFD.cjb.nethttp://members.cardomain.com/airpanther

Robert...great idea!Hey..a few things..- May want to use drop down menus on aircraft types (borrow from airliners.net) Or show examples above the field...makes it easier to search/compare- The 'notes' field is still live after you register, meaning that anyone can modify the notes on the entry. Not what you planned, I'm sure- need more instructions on how to load a photo. Took me a while to realize that I needed a link. (how do people without websites load a photo?)- Login screen returns to a 'error 500' failure screen. Not sure what's up with that.Otherwise...GREAT!!! We should have done this a LOT sooner!

Thanks TK!>Robert...great idea!>Hey..a few things..>- May want to use drop down menus on aircraft types (borrow>from airliners.net) Or show examples above the field...makes>it easier to search/compareAhh... good idea! I'll see what I can do.>- The 'notes' field is still live after you register, meaning>that anyone can modify the notes on the entry. Not what you>planned, I'm sureIt actually doesn't save... Without using the textbox, the text would wrap wildly down the page, and I haven't found a way to lock HTML textboxes..... Wait a minute... There it goes! Learn something new every day.. LOL!>- need more instructions on how to load a photo. Took me a>while to realize that I needed a link. (how do people without>websites load a photo?)I just added an "instructions" link above the photo textbox. Unfortunately, those without a web site will have to use the "noimage" picture. I just couldn't handle the bandwidth of so many large photos in addition to my own :-(>Otherwise...GREAT!!! Thanks a lot for the feedback! It's a new site, so it's the kind of information I really need. Hopefully, I can add some useful features in the future if the site becomes popular.Robert

YES! YES! Two thumbs up... I like the idea.. how soon can you start? so I can start creating my own webpage. You know Derek at www.derekcocpit.com (if i can remember) used to have samething. But it was bad, lack of updates. I am sure this time you would keep everything update maybe once or twice a month? how about adding forums there too?? what do ya think... if you want more details about the forum let me knowBTW... Whoo... thats Bad A## car you got there... Blue Celcia with lamborgini style doors, underbody lights, stereo and stuffs. Did you also do some engine modification? Hp? Too bad I couldn't do doors like yours. I drive 1997 Chevy Tahoe Z71, 375Bhp 6.0L Supercharged, Dual intercooler.. dual cat back of course dual flowmaster (soun like mustang or camaro) .It may not be that fast like yours but sure it has lot of torque. One simple hit on gas, I could see smoke coming out from back and smell burning rubber :) in case you wanted to know.. No i have not done interior yet. Maybe soon I will.

I will implement some kind of function that will make accounts inactive if you don't log in at least once every few months. That way we can keep tally on who is active (to some extent).> how about adding forums there too?? what do ya think... if>you want more details about the forum let me know>That's my next move. Right now, the forum button just links back here, but I will soon add forums for various subjects. How would everybody prefer that they be arranged? Very general (Airliners, Military) or more specific (Hardware, software, electronics)?>BTW... Whoo... thats Bad A## car you got there... Blue Celcia>with lamborgini style doors, underbody lights, stereo and>stuffs. Did you also do some engine modification? Hp? Thanks man! I have upgraded to a TRD exhaust system, which gives me 2.5" piping all the way back. Also a cold air intake has been added. This summer, I will add Trial Headers, MAYBE pulleys, as well as a fiberglass speaker enclosure, and another amplifier. 110 db just isn't enough .> Too bad>I couldn't do doors like yours.

Maybe soon I will.Your ride would easily take mine out on a straight away! I just don't have the HP and TQ to keep up! However, I would take you out on a performance track. I got a Viper SRT-10 for a short while (handles like a 747 ), and my friend's Honda Civic actually caught up when we reached a bend in the freeway! Also, I've seen lambo doors on trucks before (Lincoln Navigator, F150, Escalade)Robert

HSB or HFB... stands for Hybrid FlightSim Builder. If you look at the detail page, you will see your ID at the far left.Robert

Excellent Idea!!!!!I agree with the additional fields... would be nice, but certainly appreciate what we got:)I too, would like to know about the HBS ID... did I miss something or are you going to provide us with a ID? I wanted to sign back in and fill in the description.Thanks for setting up the Web Page:)

Thanks Matt, I am working on the log in script at this minute. As all the programmers know, sometimes you swear you have done everything right, but it still doesn't want to work!!! Drives you batty!! HOPEFULLY, you will be able to sign in by tomorrow. The search box at the top of the registry list should work fine now as well. I will likely add some "search tips" too since I realize that the search process is somewhat vague. I changed HSB to HFB and changed the reference to where it is. It is actually on the registry list and the detail page, not on the home page (contrary to what it said before.) Keep the critiques coming!Robert

Thanks Matt, That's the problem I was referring to... can't quite figure out why it's doing that :-(. I will have to start fresh and rebuild the page.Robert

Log In script should now work fine! Darndest thing... apparently if you try to use an indexed database field as the user name, the system just crashes!!! That's just insane, considering it's the only field that can NEVER be identical in two records .Now, your user name is just the name you used to sign up with, and your password is as you specified. Please let me know if there are any problems with the script, such as crossed information or error messages.Robert

Hi Robert,Could I suggest another category? How about a category for information or group sites (Avsim being an example, Simpits Intl another) as opposed to a commercial business selling product.Just a thought.ZK-SHBIf it isn't Boeing, I'm not going.http://www.737simbuilders.com/
