Flying controlled airspace by accident.

pilot_002

Today I was doing my usual flights. Morning from ESSV to ESSB and afternoon back again.

 

This morning FS9 crashed to desktop twice. So I did a hunt for bugs and it seems that the flight computer on my Flight1 ATR-72 crash FS on Win 7.

 

So I decided to do the afternoon flight without the FMC and as the ATR-72 have no GPS it would be some real flying.

 

I filed my flight plan and went to work. But when I logged in to VATSIM I saw that I was going to fly in controlled airspace for the first time. Not really prepared for that.

 

It is just to do it and it went so and so but I learned a lot. As I have FSinn on a second computer and I did not get voice to work there was a lot moving around in the cockpit. Fortunately not much traffic so I did get a lot of help from ATC. Happy about that. It is not that easy with all the software. I can do the flying but the rest is new to me. It is totally different from the automatic ATC in FS. But more fun.

 

And FS did not crash. And I got a voice to work in the end so next time I hope for better flying.

  • Back in to Sansar. Today Bryn Oh.

    Visited An evening at the Ballet by Bryn Oh. Not easy to find something you like. Bryn Oh is one of my fav artists in SL and she do not dissapoint. Like several tableau with a strong feeling of being in the theatre. I liked it.

     

    Visited some other nice places but the feeling of being alone is creeping up on you. When i visited Astro Port there was a avatar just standing there and when in VR that is just scary.

  • The quality of things in Second life.

    Visited the beach today and i am amazed. The mesh quality of things in Second life. And done right it is not very hard on the graphics card. Reducing lag. If it is done right.

    I used my Oculus to inspect the nice work and it made it a very nice experience, blink, blink. ( Did you see that.)

    Now we only need a new viewer and some some new shaders to play around with.

  • Finally i can talk about Sansar.

    The thing we all have been looking for is finally out there. Linden labs Sansar. I have been checking it out for a while but now i can write about it and that is nice.

    And so is Sansar. Nice.I have a Oculus so i can check out the experiances all the way. And i still say Sansar is nice. The graphics good. The update is good. Will be great if you want to do a simple game. And i suppose people will create new tools you can use to make buildning easy. As a user of AltspaceVR, sinespace, High Fidelity and now Sansar i just ask my self "will anybody ever use these products?"

    It have a distinct feel of Blue Mars. You wait for the download and then come into a small space that look great and wonder why am i here? Is there any reason at all?

    There will be some cool games i guess. But if i want to play a really cool game i have Steam.

    At the moment i think it is a question about wait and see.

    PS/ When i get out of Sansar i go back to my ordinary life at the Hypergrid and Second life. It is more fun! /DS

     

  • First High Fidelity avatar.

    Well it is still a Beta. Wanted to look different and i do. So went thru the process of getting a new avatar and it worked all the way to The High Fidelity viewer and then something did not work out.

    But i have a new Avatar. Now to get the textures right.
