  1. I just hung out with myself for 3 weeks and I want to apologize to everyone I ever spent time with!šŸ˜’
  2. šŸ˜šŸ˜šŸ˜ Could have been a college thesis! Don't know how much you've explored in your short time there, but try to get down to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg and The Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Absolutely beautiful country with great history. Also you live in bourbon drinkers paradise! I rode my motorcycle all over KY, TN, NC(lived in Brevard for 4 years) and the entire SE(lived in FL 14yrs). I visited all the distilleries and Civil War sites. Also take a ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway to Asheville or further during the Fall color --- breath taking! A good place to overnite on the parkway is the Pisgah Inn. https://www.pisgahinn.com/
  3. Well, that area was stunningly beautiful before the storm and shockingly ugly afterwards. It looked like a war zone. BTW, Prospect is NE Louisville, not NW. I looked at your tutorial. That is no simple task and it's way beyond my interest level, and probably skill level as well. You put a heck of a lot of time into producing that and it's obvious you aren't a casual simmer like myself. I can install liveries and do config file tweaks and simple tasks, but that's about it. Thanks for taking the time to reply to my post!
  4. Okay, thanks, Ernie I'll take a look. I see you live in Lexington. What a beautiful city and countryside. I lived in Prospect, Northwest suburb of Louisville, from 2002 to 2004. During that time we had a terrible ice storm that decimated the beautiful oak trees around Lexington and the horse farms. How do those trees look now?
  5. Well, I always thought I was a real flight simmer, but I just found out I'm a gamer! Hey, that reminds me of a story --- This old, weather beaten cowpoke orders a whiskey at the bar at the historic Virginian Hotel in Medicine Bow, Wyoming. As he rolls a smoke this lady comes in, sits down at the bar, and orders a vodka tonic. She looks at him and says -- are you a real cowboy? He looks at her and says, well I've spent my entire life mending fences, putting up hay, breaking colts and branding/castrating calves and riding herd. I guess you could say I'm a real cowboy. She looked at him and said --- me, I'm a lesbian. All I can think about day and night is women. Day in and day out, all I can think about is women! She finished her drink and left. The cowhand got this strange look on his face as he watched her disappear through the door. He shook his head, ordered another whisky and built another cigarette. About then a couple from New Jersey walk in the door and sit at the bar. The woman turns to the old cowpoke and says -- are you a real cowboy? He blew a smoke ring, took a drink of whisky, and said to the lady --- Well, I always thought I was a real cowboy, but I just found out I'm a lesbian!
  6. Okay, that settles that, thanks. I'm not going to jump thru those hoops! I'll live with what I have --- Traffic Global. There's just very little traffic moving and the major airports in the U.S. have very few foreign flag carriers visible. Bruce
  7. Hi Ernie - I can't seem to find a link to access or download the tutorial??? Bruce
  8. Here's a great idea! https://twitter.com/klara_sjo/status/1242828550329307136
  9. I downloaded their package and I don't see any instructions for inserting in FSX Steam?? The auto installer is only for P3D.
  10. Check this source out ---
  11. Thanks, I'll take a look! Bruce
  12. AIG is for P3D only -- isn't it??
  13. I understand very little of this, but I have had Hyper Threading turned off for several years due to advice from long ago. In this thread Rob and Steve seem to disagree on it's usefulness. So what is it? HT on, or HT off??? My PC specs: Cooler Master MasterCase 5 Pro chassis ASUS ROG Strix Z270E Gaming system board Intel Core i7-7700K Processor 4.2GHz(unclocked) ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti STRIX ROG Overclocked 11GB GDDR5X 1000W Gold power supply with CableMod's ModFlex sleeving 32GB G.Skill DDR4-3200 RAM Intel 600P Series 256GB M.2 SSD's in RAID 0 (512GB) 2TB WD storage drive 16x Blu-ray DVD Burner Drive 10/100/1000 Network 802.11ac Wireless Bluetooth 4.1 Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64-bit Bruce I just saw Steve's last post(we posted simultaneously). I guess I 'll try his suggested test. Actually my FSXSE is running extremely well and loading times are quite short with HT off.
  14. If the new MSFS has simple flight planning and GPS navigation similar to FSX, and if you don't have to do cold and dark starts or program an FMS -- I am a buyer. I will never be a so called *hardcore simmer*. I'm 82 and would fall asleep before I got to the active runway if I had to jump through all those hoops! šŸ˜” Too, airport charts and sectional maps make me dizzy! šŸ˜µ Bruce
  15. I am not a real pilot and I don't have any study level AC, but try this --- load the 172(or any FSX default AC). If the engine(s) is running set parking brake, shut it down and turn all switches to off. Then save the flight and select *make it the default flight*. Close FSX. The next time you load FSX and select any ac it should load cold and dark with the parking brake set. Bruce
