  1. Nice to see you back here Steve. Your new system sounds awesome! Smooth flying -Tom
  2. Likewise guys. I actually keep hoping someone will come up with something better than Flight, but after all these years, no one has. I wonder what MS Flight 5.0 would look like today if it had remained in development?

    Converting FSX content to Flight

    Thanks Stonelance. Overall, I'm pretty happy with my current conversion. Thanks again for all the work you put into this project!

    Converting FSX content to Flight

    Using Flight, I landed at an airport a while ago that I knew had a control tower. There were various buildings, hangars, etc., and fuel, but the control tower was missing. I thought I'd fire up good old FSX and land at the same airport. Sure enough the control tower was there, as well as jetways that were missing in Flight. After checking a bunch more airports, I came to the conclusion that several object types did not get converted to Flight. My question is, should all the airport infrastructure / objects have been converted from FSX to Flight?

    Aerocache problem?

    Thanks a lot Steve! Any new ones I publish will not have this issue.

    New install on new machine

    Good luck. I'm planning on buying a new, bigger, better box too, so I'm watching how your fresh install goes.

    Well, I'm back.

    Welcome back jandjfrench. Regarding your crashing near KSNS, In my travels, I have bumped into at least 4 other airports that cause the same thing. Not a big showstopper for me, 4 out of the 2000+ airports I've landed at is minor. It's a shame it's happening at your home field.

    MS Flight new aerocaches

    So for those keeping count, if you have captured all the aerocaches published to date, you would show 385 aerocaches in your profile.

    Aerocache problem?

    Thanks Stonelance, These new Aerocaches all have their "Activation Distance" set too far out. (in some cases 1000 meters) If you could change them to 10 meters, they would be much more challenging. Desert Power, TV Moscow, Rio Landmark, Cold Storage, Pan Pacific, Beeched in Sydney, Bridge to Somewhere, Forbidden City, The Big One, United HQ, Triumphant Arch of the Star, London Eye, Kaze no To, Hillary's Hill, Acropolis, Meow Meow, Home of Finnair, Pretty Gaudy, Hangar 1600, Shanghai WFC. Thanks again for all your dedicated work! -Tom

    Aerocache problem?

    I authored many of those, but unfortunately, despite testing them all, they did not turn out quite the way I intended. The "Activation Distance" was set out too far, hence you can easily achieve most of these just by flying fairly close. Testing in Pending mode does not show how close you actually need to be to claim the cache. My placing the Aerocache icon in a challenging spot at the location does not come into play. Lesson learned!

    New Aerocaches - How to post them

    There should be a dozen *Pending* caches out there now. Still more in the pipe.
  13. Thanks Cyberix. I just loaded it up this weekend and it works great. One minor annoyance. After I clicked on "Stay on Top", the menu / options bar is gone and I can not get it back again. Any ideas?

    New Aerocaches Icon

    Thanks JR. There are more aerocaches in the pipeline. Since Steve opened up the "World", there is a lot more good stuff to publish. -Tom

    New Aerocaches - How to post them

    There are now several more *Pending* Aerocaches out there for you to check out. If the Aerocache Editor allowed the cache owner to re-edit, I would tweak these all a bit. It's hard to get the icon to appear just where you want it placed.
