Re: [JUN 26] Jones Beach Airshow 2022 (VCAP)

https://i.imgur.com/XMjFlHm.png A round of thank-yous to everyone who turned out, either flying or spectating, and made today's Jones Beach Airshow possible!

Re: [JUN 26] Jones Beach Airshow 2022 (VCAP)

Dear sirs, I'm a YSF rookie! But I am very excited and interested in the upcoming air show. I would like to ask the experts, if I want to be an audience member of this air show, how should I prepare? Also make sure to let me know and learn about other precautions or information. Thanks again for yo...

Re: Ground Addon Question

You have to either replace the existing carrier ground object (not recommended due to collision issues), or manually put them in a map using Scenery Editor. Ground objects aren't set up to automatically appear on maps when they're put into YS.

JONES BEACH 2022 HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO JUNE 26. Well, folks... here we go. Again. Over the last week, yours truly has been struggling with some serious internet speed issues that have made the possibility of running the Jones Beach Airshow this weekend very marginal (thanks, Verizon!).

Re: [JUN 18] Jones Beach Airshow 2022 (VCAP)

Hi all, new here, cant wait to see this... how do i spectate live? Usually, Hornet streams YSFHQ airshows, but he'll only briefly be present at this one, and has decided not to stream this time. Gordo and I are looking into setting up an official VCAP stream on either Youtube or Twitch, but in the ...

Re: [JULY16] Rockford airshow 2022 [TSAF]

After Jones Beach, I was planning on taking a short sabbatical from the live circuit to start work on what will be, by far and away, my most ambitious virtual aerobatics project yet, for the next VCAP airshow. But, since I'm already on board to co-host this one too... well, why not bring one of my o...

Well, folks... Today marks a full year since Gunny passed. I don't have anything prepared for this occasion, but the least we could do is observe the day.

We need to close the versions divide

Okay, I've held my tongue on this for a while now, but after a discussion that cropped up on VCAP earlier tonight, it's about time that we addressed this one long-standing issue. For a while now, most of the servers listed here on YSFHQ have operated using the 2015 version, making it the "official" ...

[REQUEST] Boeing 367-80 "Dash 80" (707 Prototype)

Honestly, I'm surprised we don't already have this one! At the dawn of the civilian jet age, the legendary De Havilland Comet was already on its way out of the public's good graces after going through multiple mid-air breakups. At the same time, in the mid-50s Boeing was setting out to prove that th...
