A FIRST FOR FS!!!!! PITCHING PROP BLADES!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Okay. I just got done testing a new feature that's a first for FS! Pitching prop blades! That's right! You move the prop control lever, and the blades change pitch!!!!I'll have proof as a simple aircraft file here in a bit! It just contains a simple prop I did in Gmax, to test this feature. But it's a first!!!

Well, I've had this "working" model now for quiet a few months. One of my friends finally convinced me to release it.

Another feature added to the list here. I just finished testing it with a basic box.Squishing tires!!!!I'll update the model a tad so it looks more like a tire. I'll then upload it later. Don't have the time right now. I'm uploading the prop one first.

I can vouch for Jon, he showed me his idea a couple of months ago.

If you've got 'em show 'em. It seems PSS is a little too concerned with taking credit for unproven "firsts" and not concerned enough with past promises made. BTW where can I download the Dash 8? Oops, not ready yet? No problem, I'll just download the patch for the PSS747 and fly the FS2002 sky. Oops, not ready yet? No problem, I'll just download the patch for the PSS777 and.......Trip

Trip, that's funny. We all laugh now but when Graham has had enough and pulls the plug on PSS for good.....Some of us won't be laughing. I'm not syaing he is going to or is thinking about it (I would never know anyway), I have seen others who designed planes quit due to the constant bashing.

Ever been heckled so much about your work that you cannot be bothered putting up with it? Ever been on the brink of nervous breakdown because of what you've had to put up with? Making aircraft has nothing to do with being too thin-skinned. Designers don't have to listen to anyone (expecially freeware). Their model, their choice. I was nervous releasing the Debonair model because of what I've seen people do to Mr Mike Stone in this forum about his models...and my skills arnt nearly as good as his. Not as easy as what it looks.BTW, congrats on getting the prop pitch to work!! I'm still trying to figure out how to get the lever to move in the VC!! :-lolhttp://homepages.paradise.net.nz/edenw/fs_banner_je4.jpg Think highly of yourself, for the world takes you at your estimate -Anon

Well, one things for sure. Either they will learn some customer-relations skills of they will, indeed, be out of business. I haven't "bashed" PSS nearly to the degree they have "bashed" their customers. I'm sure Graham will stay in business as long as it's profitable to do so. And when PSS has gone, someone else will be there to take their place.

You know, you can be the greatest of the great, but if you are also an arrogrant ..., then you are still an arrogrant ...They sell things because they sell things. If they didn't make money they would find something elese to do. Simple as that.Regard,BobEnjoy all of the FS World!

Hey I was just thinking its been 2 1/2 weeks since PSS said the patch for the 777 and 747 would be ready...they said it would be 7 to10 day then and that was after the clock was put back into motion.Hey OOPs dont let the ugly dog pea you off or get to you.

The only people getting harsh replies from PSS are those who deserve them, in other words those who bash them...As long as you're courteous and friendly, so are they. Just remember that just because you're not face to face and risking getting a fist in your mouth doesn't mean you can be rude...
