New hire

Postby dredick » 07 Oct 2013 05:41

Hi all. Thought I'd pop in here and say hello.

I've been involved (off and on) with flight simming since the original MSFS for the Apple II back in the early '80's. I've never been real good at virtual flying, but I enjoy the heck out of it! :D

Finally got FSX a couple of months ago when I had the thought of "Well, the game is years old, certainly my computer can handle it". Unlike other games of similar age where I can run balls to the wall on the graphics, this is not the case with FSX. I can't run everything maxed out and have a decent frame rate. :(

No matter - it still looks pretty darn good!

So far I have about 150 various aircraft and helicopter models in my collection, and with the various repaints I have, all told probably about 600 total.

Last week I completed my first two flights here, ending up in Olympia, WA at the end of my second flight. Been thinking of where to go from here - and in what aircraft - there are so many possibilities LOL!

I had a third flight going, but due to circumstances beyond my control I was unable to complete it. :cry:
