  1. I tend to update my Nvidia drivers fairly soon after released ( whql). Can't say I see much difference with each update, I suspect if I had gone like a year or longer between updates, I might see a performance boost. I like to stay current with all my drivers, so I do it on a regular basis.
  2. You might have a look at this tutorial for using GMap . http://forum.avsim.net/tutorials/article/72-how-to-use-gmap-as-a-popup-within-flight-full-screen-on-one-monitor/ I use this method and display GMap on my second monitor and it works great as well.
  3. Lol, this one I was researching on the net trying to plan my flight path by using google maps , I was having a hard time finding a map view of where it should be - figured what the heck and loaded up the flight, to find the aerocache sensor already showing whilst I was on the runway at Chicken... Needless to say, this one didn't take much effort, fun with nice scenery though:
  4. Well dang, I missed this one. Had a few minutes early this morning before I had to head out, started Flight but got an error " games for windows live has stopped responding", or something to that effect. Tried it again with same result, and I just had no more time. Not sure what was going on with that, first time I have seen that happen. I'll try the new Iditarod tomorrow and see if everything is ok...
  5. Hey I guess they woke the hamster up lol! I think I will wait until the morning as well...
  6. This would not work for me then, I use a two monitor setup running Flight in windows mode so I have access to my second monitor, where I put GMap and other things. Looks nice though.
  7. Well this is interesting, while I love Flight and it's graphics for the most part, I have always thought it was just a little on the dark side, looks like this brightens things up a bit. I may have to give this a try, thanks for sharing!
  8. I am getting the same, I run through MS as well.
  9. +1 to this. I highly recommend folks use the checklist at least a few times for each aircraft, not only is it a learning experience for each individual plane, it adds something to the flight as well and I found them fun to do. I don't use them every flight any more, but especially for newer folks to the sim, it is a great learning tool... Welcome to the forums young tubgoatz, I hope you stick around a while! Have fun,
  10. Welcome to the forums Eric! I hope you stick around a while and continue to participate in this great community! I think you already go your questions answered - I have had many hours of fun flying jobs, they are a blast, and have a sense of accomplishing something when you do them. As Steve mentioned, if you have not be sure and check out some of the clandestine jobs when you run across them. They can be hard to find at times. Adds a little excitement in that there is a possibility of getting busted by the cops and not being able to finish the job. They also are usually worth some good XP points as well.
  11. Are you talking about the same aerocache ? This one was in Alaska, and " the size of Oregon" was not in the suggested search term... My apologies if I misunderstand, running a little empty on sleep today.
  12. Well it was not quite where I thought it would be, but I managed to find it anyway: Returning and back safely to Sheldon Point:
  13. Welcome to flight simming and this great forum! Always good to see new blood coming into the hobby, I cannot personally help on this, VOR is something I keep meaning to learn in Flight, however have a read here - it is an excellent tutorial on VOR in Flight from what I understand. http://forum.avsim.net/tutorials/article/75-complete-vor-tutorial/ This is in the Flight Early Tutorials, in the Tutorial section here on Avsim. There is a wealth of other great information tucked away in there as well. I hope this helps,
  14. Decided to take the Alaska Wildlife Cub out for this one. Not a difficult one, just follow the river north to Grayling. Might have been fun to take the Icon on the water as a boat for this one as well. Leaving Anvik Airport: There you are my little pretty! Decided to land here at Grayling and taxi up to this one. Gotta watch the trees! Another successful AOTD run.
