Hey! Just wait a minute here!

Recommended Posts

All of you who might think that Fly!2 is "dead", but don't want it to be:I am sure that among you, there might be some good C++ people, scenery people, aircraft people, etc.Could you please email me at lkalamaras@precisionmanuals.com - please attach your developer abilities. I am particularly interested in C++ skills - anything that has a history of flight-sim related work should be detailed as well.Thanks,

Nah..... Fly2 isn't dead at all :) This terrific community are going to fight on the barricades for it!!Fly2 is going to evolve with all the great developers out there making exellent stuff for our sim.I'm going to work harder than ever to spread the word :) and i'm sure everyone else in this community are too!!Johnny"I'LL BE BACK"[div align=center]http://www.avsim.com/hangar/fly/josve/fly2/vas.gif][/div

Was anyone really surprised by what Richard Harvey said?We've got to get tour act together, just like any good community would do in the face of something that they don't like. Sometimes I feel that we're too cheap or want something for nothing. Think of it,as Lefteris points out, there are pleanty of programmers out there. We should just be willing to organize ourselves around specific goals for this sim, and be willing to pay for it if we must. Heck, I'll put my money where my mouth is. tony

Hi Lefteris,It just came up to me, Is it possable to make a project for both Flight simulators? Take the J41 for example why don't you guy's just make this plane for FLY! II and MSFS. I mean you have allready got the research done for only one of the Flightsimulators and maybe you can use the cockpit panels and views aswell for FLY II and MSFS? It's just a thought! :-roll Take care :-wave

Hi Johnny,You are spreading the " word " ,you say ? ! I know what you mean.In that case I am "a believer".And it is absolutely a matter of fact that you are a very goodmissionary.A few days ago I tried to find some pic and tec.details about(you alreadye guessed) the Pa19.Not the flight/sim-model but the real thing.I used several search-engines and believe it or not almost everytime there was JOHNNY`S FLYZONE.I was`nt looking for your pages ,but they are persistently present.You always subcribe with "I'LL BE BACK" !!!WHY???? You are ALWAYS THERE!!!Please STAY??????LeenEHRDpsI was looking for pic and details about Pa19`s used by the French "L

NOW..... THIS sounds like the FLYII guys I remember from the beta tester program! Thanks guys! I'm sorry to say, I don't have the skills or programs necessary to help with programing, but if you need a tester, I'm ready! I love FLYII just as it is but love it a little more every time someone makes improvements!Richard Harvey,God bless and keep you and your family and I certainly pray your health problems will vanish! Best wishes on your new project. If it is your passion, it must be awsome!!Thanks to richard and all you guys for keeping FLYII going!Earl Buice.... "and the greatest of these is Love." I Cor. 13:13

I think after the comments in here this week we are stonger than ever!! I am going to do what ever I can to keep Fly alive. I have no programming brains (other than a little perl) but I am in the process of creating a web site for fly developers to post their beta work. I'm hoping this will help others learn what is needed to create add-ons and enhancements to fly. I will post the address once DNS gets updated.I also want to than EVERYONE for their part in making fly what it is. Let keep Fly Alive!-dajackman

Lefteris,As soon as I learn C++ I'll let you know. ;-) I've only written that Python script to autopause the sim so far. I guess I'll post that this weekend since no one can tell me how to get DefineKey to work right. I've also written all the code at work to do the mass properties fuel burn analysis for the F-16 with any size internal tanks....with VisualBasic (don't laugh)...in Access (really, don't laugh). :-lolnick

I`m trying out a few ideas, including elevated borders for the Ak scenery.The border still looks a bit crude, but if all goes well I will be able to make a more natural transition between the ground and water.Andy

And here is one that went horribly wrong from a previous experiment, looks more like a delicious chocolate cake *:-* , but you can see what I`m trying to achieve.Andy

Hi Lefteris,we don't know how, but here, at ROTW, we are ready to work in order to give another chance at Fly!I know we have C++ programmers.Please send me a mail to give us more explanations about your idea.Ren

As an IT instructor, I always bring up the topic of flight simulation to my class during breaks. I then tell them about Fly!2, and that if they want a really good feeling of what it's like to follow checklists, and fly with realistic flight models, Fly!2 is the one they ought to check out. The price is right.I include a couple of screenies to convince them. Most of them have not heard of Fly!, although some know it by name. All are impressed with the quality of panels, and even more so when I tell them that all switches work as they should.The people at NavCan (formely Transport Canada), that is, the school where future Air Traffic Controllers learn, where very impressed when I told them about flying online with Roger Wilco and VATSIM.As for my part in the future of Fly!2, I can work with TS and TM.I will email Lefteris to tell him so.All these people in this forum, each with a skillset to bring forth, can accomplish great things with this sim.

Lefteris,Count me in.....if we can ever get access to the source engine.There are several things I would like to tackle, but would need source access.As you know, I am well aware of the problems in getting the source. I know that TRI would love to help out on this one, but I fully understand their dilemma :(However, if you guys at PMDG can ever pull some strings..... ;) Allen

Frank,I have been waiting a long time too. The birds are really nice when I can watch them fly. And they have an interesting behaviour :)I just bought a new graphics card, so I guess the birdflocks number can be increased...Thanks and happy landings,
