    RAM Upgrade

    That's some good advice there thanks for that. I held off the RAM for the time being until probably a bit later on, so will keep that in mind for future shopping.
  3. Hi all, I have been running a powerful machine for my simming needs for a while, but now I am getting more into video production and editing (Premiere Pro and AE). I have a set of 8GB G.Skill 2400MHz CL9 ram at the moment, clocked at 2166MHz, but it doesn't seem to be enough for my video needs. If I would like to upgrade my RAM, what would you recommend and how much of it? The reason I am asking here is because I would like my selection of RAM to be compatible and efficient for my simming needs. And rest of my specs are: Asus ROG Maximus Gene V i5 3570K OC 4.9GHz NVidia GTX780 Ti superclocked HDD: 2TB WD Caviar Black SSD: 2x 512GB Samsung Evo (I think), 1x 1TB Samsung Evo Custom water loop (can't remember brand) Corsair Modular PSU 7/850W (can't remember exactly) Thanks in advance,

    Performance Question

    Certainly has the potential, but it depends on how high you want your graphics to be set at

    Study Level Sim List

    Not many GA type SLSs ey? Carenados and Alabeo's stuff look good, but anyone keen to comment whether they can be considered SLSs? Flight dynamics any realistic?

    I believe that's it, I think it was by RWDesign, good find

    Study Level Sim List

    Ahh guess I've passed the time where I can edit my post so can't add these on... Oh well... I thought there was also a recent release of Twin Otter beyond the Aerosoft one? Is that one any good? I forgot whom by... ELITE! I have never heard of that, will check out your review

    All noted thanks. It's good to see the X-Plane section building up, and more helicopters are stacking up too!

    Study Level Sim List

    Hi all, I've been doing some wondering and searching, but from what I could find, there is not really a compiled list of our (recreational/civil) "Study Level Sim" (SLS) addons. I can't imagine there will be too many out there that can be considered a SLS, so I'm just going to start naming ones I know of, and if anyone would like to share what else (modern platform independent) they consider as an SLS, please do so! I feel an SLS should be something that pilots can get hold of, use real world manuals to fly the addon and the addon will respond exactly as a real world aircraft/FFS would. So here's what I'm aware of: [X-Plane] Dreamfoil R22 Dreamfoil Bell 407 LES Saab 340a X-Trident Bell 412 [FSX/FSX:SE] Dodosim Bell 206 FSLabs Concorde PMDG JS1400, B744, MD11 Leonardo "Maddog" MD80 Marcel Felde (Aerosoft) Diamond DA20-100 4X [P3D v2/FSX/FSX:SE] A2A range Majestic Dash-8 Q400 (MJC8) PMDG NGX, B772/3 RealAir Duke and Turbine Duke v2 VRS F/A-18E Super Bug [standalone] Aerowinx PSX B744 FlightDeck A3xx What did I miss?! Cheers,

    Career Advice in the Flight Simulation Industry

    Wow, very encouraging indeed! Definitely put a good application together and see how far it takes me Thanks mate Now why didn't I think of using the word "manufacturer", that would have given me more spot-on hits than what i've been using! I'll check through that one, thanks for that.

    Career Advice in the Flight Simulation Industry

    Sorry I should have made it more specific. When I say Flight Simulation I mean commercial grade Flight Training Devices, more like FDS and Cockpitsonic. I might try sending my CV through to Redbird as well, hope they have more opening than ones advertised. Thanks.

    Career Advice in the Flight Simulation Industry

    Thank you for the kind words Ron. When I was working for the sim company, I needed to drive 2 hours each way to work (3 to 4 days a week) and that lasted for over a year (including some road accidents avoiding them kangaroos), so with certainty, and in comparison to other work I've done, I can confidently use the words "burning passion"

    Career Advice in the Flight Simulation Industry

    Thanks for the reply Ron. I assume you are referring to LM in the US? What I found was that many of these military focused companies from US or Canada required that I am at least a US Citizen or bilingual (French/English), which I do not qualify for. I have tried to look at Thales, CAE, BR&TA, LM, Raytheon, BAe, Bombardier and some other big boys I cannot quite remember, but the experience they require is where I am falling over. I am now focusing on smaller companies but not quite sure what is out there besides ones that are renowned in the FS community. However, I am still keeping an eye out for the bigger players in case any falls through.
  14. Hi all, I have a burning passion to get into the flight simulation industry in the engineering domain as a long-term career path. However, I don't have all the necessary experiences that CAE or Thales or the likes look for. I do have what I consider as the appropriate qualification and some previous experience in a sim manufacturing company. Can anyone give me some suggestions on how to get my foot in the door? I am willing to travel to other countries (currently in Australia) if need be. Thanks in advance, Brendan
