  1. Whatever was done in April to the mouse detection or mouse movement really messed things up. FSX always had the FPS drop when using mouse look, but P3D seems to have fixed it. It was fine months ago when I first got Chaseplane. But now the dreaded 10-15 fps drop is back with P3D and recent builds of Chaseplane. This is really bad for me because I use a Gsync monitor. Gsync only works above 30fps. When using mouse look with Chaseplane, the fps drops below 30fps, making screen tearing absolutely horrendous.
  2. Rudder trim is mapped to an axis or some other key
  3. Alaska flying is a little more risky than elsewhere; mountains, weather, etc. Alaska Airlines ha a submitted and gotten approval for its own approach and departure procedures. I guess they've proven that their pilots are proficient in flying the tighter procedures. They're property of the airline and not published. Someone managed to get some of them from the airline and they're on avsim in the library. Juneau in particular is surrounded by terrain. The procedures probably fly closer to terrain than normally allowed and save thre airline a lot of money, but Alaska has adequately proven they have and maintain the equipment to safely fly them.
  4. Opusfsx has better dynamic head movement than ezdok that was actually recorded in aircraft with an accelerometer. But imo it's less intuitive setting up camera views than ezdok. I do not know how it handles joystick panning though. Maybe ask in their support forum. It's also arguably the best weather system in FSX, so you get that as well.
  5. The glass system is heaps more difficult to code than the an-2. I think it's worth 40. So there were some minor problems. The most obscene have been fixed.
  6. I like to ferry my favorite baseball team on their road trips. Teams usually cut a deal with an airline to do all their flights. The Tampa Bay Rays use a Delta 738, specifically Delta 8894 is the flight number they use a lot. Check it out on flightaware. A Delta/Rays livery would be awesome!

    Hit the big 30 yesterday. My first msfs experience was in 95 on a friend's pc. I didn't understand why the 747 wouldn't take off (no flaps). I also got motion sickness and my mother thought I had been drinking. I played fs9 for a bit when it launched. Got back into it hardcore with fsx this past summer
