Re: RIP: YSFlight veteran J.A. "Gunny" Correia III (1952-2021)

Per his wishes, some months (years?) back I published his entire collection of addons here on the site. He was so dedicated to this community that he mailed the files to me on a flash drive and specifically asked that we protect the collection and make it available down the road for future players....

YSFHQ Teamspeak Archive: Scarecrow & Gunny talk airshows and fly-ins (3/29/2014)

Recently, I thought of making a thread for releasing a few Teamspeak-era chat recordings that I had caught and archived back in 2014. Now, with our finding out about the passing of Gunny in mind, this feels like a good time to publicly release one of those files in particular. It's a pretty great lo...

RIP: YSFlight veteran J.A. "Gunny" Correia III (1952-2021)

Today, we celebrated YSFHQ veteran Gunny's 69th birthday, even though he hasn't appeared on the site in over a month. Well, given his age, I feared the worst and went searching... and my fears were justified: it does appear that our old friend passed away last month, as his name, description, and ex...

Re: YS Military Airshows Association (YSMAA)

It's time for some good and bad news. Let's start with the bad. Due to troubles regarding major compatibility issues with the map, we at YSMAA have decided to indefinitely postpone the debut of our home airshow, Thunder Over Madobe. This isn't to say that ToM will never take place, but as it stands ...

Re: [Program] YSFlight Map Reverter

I'm lost on how this works. I ran it on a map that was made in 2015, but can't find the fixed file. Readme says it goes to an "Output Files" folder, but that folder isn't there. Is it just not outputting the file, or...?

Re: How old are you?

Less than a month away from 22 here. Old enough to remember Vertigo and Remedy being big on the radio (thanks, dad!) and the joyous September of MREs that came after Katrina rolled through here.

Tfan and I had some interesting "timing" as we both tried landing at the same time.
On a related note, Decaff makes his landing at Tenerife South prior with some uncomfortable company from yours truly:

I wish.......idk......i think an air-to-air refuel system.
OpenYS has that as a feature, but no servers run OYS at the moment because of netcode problems. Maybe if someone picks up OYS's development again, we'll see it again in the future.

Re: Origin of your username

"What the YS?!" is (and in Rice's original run of it, was) a video series meant for immortalizing the various entertaining and wacky moments that go down in multiplayer YS, and that can include anything from hilarious c...
