In this episode Nicolas attempts to process the latest events in their life under continued quarantine. A piece of writing Nicolas is working on along with their finances and the imminent release of Microsoft Flight Simulator (2020) has given Nicolas pause. Could this be an opportunity to hang up the headset? Sadly, at this level of addiction, Nicolas suspects not. But, with their continued fs addiction in mind Nicolas is at least thinking critically about their addictive behavior. Other topics include getting along with people, reflecting on the past and trying not to dwell on podcast download statistics.
In this episode I talk about a flight sim job opportunity that I missed due to not being in Seattle. I also talk about my new obsession over The E Jet which lead me to The Aerosoft CRJ. Long story short: The CRJ doesn’t have an autothrottle (I knew this going in). I hate The CRJ because it doesn’t have an autothrottle. This same line of thought leads me to XPlane and The X-Crafts Ejet. I question if I need Active Sky to really enjoy XP. Or, can I get the Ejet and fly in XP without AS? Lastly I am streaming again at https://www.twitch.tv/nicnacjak/
In this episode I talk about the classic FeelThere EMB 170 and 190 and some of the challenges they had from a systems perspective. I convey my hope that V2 of The FeelThere EMB 170-195 will be a good systems airplane. I also talk a bit about multiple developers making the same scenery.
In this episode I wearily walk you through the swiss cheese model that led to having to reinstall P3D. During my ramblings I cover LatinVFR’s BWI, FSDreamTeams’ Charlotte, Drzewiecki Design’s Seattle and New York and the good old QW 787. All this as I limp along in a 737 leg from Austin to Seattle in FSX. Care to ride along?
In this episode I talk about my May purchases for P3Dv4 (Orbx Australia, Orbx Melbourne International and Aresoft Frankfurt), my time long hauling it in the QualityWings 787 in FSX:SE, and some install problems that MegaSceneryEarth has. Enjoy your May flying. I’ll most likely see you next month!
In this episode I review The QualityWings 787 for FSX. My general reaction is that it is a disappointing release that flies poorly and lacks fidelity in the required automation systems. I also talk about The VAS issues that Orbx Arlanda suffers from in FSX noting that wouldn’t be an issue is P3D V4. Finally I talk about the future of the podcast.
