Starting up on VATSIM

DSC09890

My interest in flying started when I as a child used to play around and in the airplanes at the old Malmoe airport, Bulltofta. And we were flying Cessnas a lot. I wanted to be a pilot but life took another path.

After many years out of the fly zone I have found my way back to simulated flying. I have been flying around the world since my first software on the Commodore 64. I have over 50 different types of flight software for all kinds of machines.

But it have all been just for fun until now. I found VATSIM and there have been a lot happening with simulated flying. Internet and powerful home PC. Network Flying is another thing.

These guys mean business so I have yet to do my first flight in the network. Reading up and listening in. And I have found that my PC setup does not work when you are trying on a approach to a busy airport. Need to rethink my cockpit.

But it is a lot of fun and sooner or later you see me with the other pilots roaming the sky.

  • Pride Second life

    I have a small store at Pride this year. Go there and get two free pride Lions.

  • Starting to work on AI for Opensim.

    After looking at Westworld i started to study AI and found that this is really something i like to do. My first education was in in information theory and ther was a lot of pshycology and sociology involved. So it is nice to start to do some research in an new field and have some use for my old educaton. Not everything is VR and computer programming.

     

    There are a lot of work done so it could be easy to integreat AI into avatars on my grid. Unforunatly most of the old websites are gone but i hope to find more scripts and software. I have bought a Raspberry PI that i was thinking could run my first avatar.

    I will but up what i find on http://2worlds2go.org. I think.

    And now as usual it is all work and more work. But it is going to be fun. I have longing for something to sink my teeth in.

  • The view from my house

    I have a very nice view from my house. Lucky me, I spend some time here in Second life. It’s a private place so you never know when it is gone. But I enjoy it for now.

  • ROMANVM that’s a great build.

    This is a great build of ancient Rome. Just walking around made me very impressed.

     

    Well it’s a boys playground. (Why don’t girls have places like this?).

     

    I think everything is in place and they have their own website.

    Time to get those male avatars out and go for a spin because this place really make a builder cry..
