I would like to say hello

Recommended Posts

HELLO :D,After many years of having a computer without the internet, I would like to say hello, because I have just invested in my first net connection, did a search of flightsim and came across this site :D.Can you all please give me places to start looking for new and exciting things to do on the internet?. I have heared about Virtual Airlines, but not too sure what they are about? maybe someone can explain. I have downloaded a few new aircraft, Umm an A320 BMI and a Garuda Indonesia B747-400. What would you recommend :D, I havnt got a clue where to start :D

Welcome to hte best fs site.lets see.....Go get the best plane ever created for FS (IMO) the Project Airbus A320. http://www.avsim.com/projectairbus/a320release.htm grab the sounds as well.You will also find a lot of repaints for that plane here in the Avsim library. Just search for Project Airbusand the best panel for it is here:http://ftp.avsim.com/library/sendfile.php?DownloadID=16049Now go here http://fsw.simflight.com/FSWMenu2002.htmland get some new clouds/lights night lighting and some other nice effects.As time passes you will discover more great add-ons. Look in the screenshot forum because you willl a lot of scenery/planes and you can ask the people where to get them.Have fun.MikeEDIT: i fogot to say....If you find yourself at fsplanet.com stay away because that guy steals files and makes a profit from freeware files. He is a thief.

wow - I can only stress not to breathe too deeply on the first inhale ;-) If you heard about virtual airlines, you are probably curious about online flying. Try http://vatsim.net/ for an introduction into that. It's the biggest (but not the only one) online flying community.Virtual airlines? Yeah, plenty. One that I happen to know a bit (not as a member) is http://www.bavirtual.co.uk. It's pretty much complete, and it'll give you an idea.Welcome to the online bit of our hobby!Vince

They are looking good. Yeah.Well, Its been about 6 months since I got my connection but its been a strictly Work Only connection. But I can now afford to use it outside work :D.I was wondering about joing a group, that would help me in collage. Dont know if this is in the correct forum but somone might see it :D.I am have started a course in web coding, (thats in PHP not HTML). and I am looking for a place where I can exercise the skills I learn. I have spent the day looking at Virtual Airlines, and looking at the website structure, I can tell that it must take a heck of a lot of work updating the website all the time. I think that I could really help out in this sector. If anyone is looking for a PHP coder, then E-Mail me at hardflex@doramail.com and I will talk and see if I can help. I have been looking at VA's and I think I will join AirWeGo group. Looks about the best :D
