What is SimDirector??

 

Something Lockheed Martin seems to think is important.

Does anyone not remember the missions and the mission creator's for FSX? True, this is aimed more for their commercial training customers but initially I recall quite a few missions created for FSX. I used to try them just for kicks when I got bored.

 

Why NOT use Simdirector to create a flight and throw in some malfunctions, etc. This could be a whole new area of exploration for the "regular" simmer.

Have not thought of that Vic, could be a good idea.

That's exactly right. That's why every combat sim I own, including ARMA, has a robust mission builder. User-made scenarios are fundamental to maintaining an active community.

 

I absolutely love addon missions in FSX, especially if time was taken to record custom audio and appropriate repaints. I may be in the minority though.

 

But using the SimDirector looks about as fun and inspiring as taking a cheese grater to your forehead. :P  I'll give a try nonetheless.

Or developers like PMDG could do their tutorial flights per Sim Director?

SimDirector is used a lot in a professional environment to create flight scenarios.

 

But also those professional users face the same OOM issues as we do.

So LM surely is looking into that.

Perhaps their answer is called : P3D v3 64 bit....

 

Just my 2 cents

@ Lamar and Aaron,

Have you had any success in using SimDirector yet?

SD is a hugely powerful tool and I've only just started trying to understand it. So far I've set up simple scenarios using the playback funtion to fly a pre-recorded AI profile. I'm finding it hard to do simple things given the number of actions needed to initiate a simple change. I'm sure it will come with practice.
