That video came across my subscription feed on Youtube the other day and when I saw it I nearly fell out of my chair laughing. :lol:

Re: Screencaps (Unedited)

I got a screenshot of the memorial group flight to remember Gunny. yscas 20210730.png Several of the GA aircraft addons I worked on over the years were either inspired or requested by Gunny, especially the Piper Seneca pack that includes several fictional tail numbers with GNY or JAC in them because...

Re: [SCENERY] United Kingdom

I just checked my map rotation page and the link for the UK map under today's date goes to the Welsh Addons Hangar Pack topic you linked to, which goes to the same Google doc you linked to.

Re: [PROGRAM] OpenYS - Open Source YSFlight Server!

Flake, I missed an update? I had weird things going on last week that had me distracted from a lot of things. I just got it installed and it is currently running my server.

It appears using the Way Back Machine (archive.org) you can look at and download the KZS pack as it was a few years ago.

Here are some screenshots from tonight's Friday Night Flights.

It would be nice if CaptainYS himself could be "inspired" by Flake's work to make some of the OYS features official.

Re: Weather in your area 2021

On Tuesday I was able to get my garden tilled and some squash and cucumber seeds planted. It rained a little bit here on Wednesday, but I heard there were storms east of here. It looks like storms will be moving back in over the next few days.

FTR, It seems like YSFHQ can't recognize photo as auto-rotated image:
I noticed when I clicked on the thumbnail for that image, the image loaded and was auto-rotated in the correct orientation. Weird.

The swarm that showed up 5 years ago made a horrible noise for about 2-3 months.

Re: Weather in your area 2021

More storms came blowing through yesterday evening into the early part of last night. After being hot all day, we went to bed with our windows open to try to get a little air in the house. When the rain stopped, the wind picked up. I woke up at about 4 AM and it was in the low 60s F and about 56°F o...

Re: Weather in your area 2021

Our tree guy (it happens often enough my dad has him on speed dial) is cutting trees now. The person who died was right down the road, we can see their trailer park from our driveway. My friend who lives near Union City posted pictures of trees down on her neighbor's house. There is also a gas leak ...

Re: Weather in your area 2021

We had a really bad storm come through early this morning. Trees are down, power is out, schools closed, and at least 1 dead in my county, possibly right down the road from me, since fire and rescue squads came rolling in.

It was a year ago yesterday that a similar storm came through our area.

Re: YSF addons and copyrights... Can you copyright a design that has been stolen?

my sending an aircraft that's publicly available for free to somebody else directly without the consent of the modder is a no-no? If it is something that is available to download, just send them a link to download it. If your friend doesn't have a network connection, load it on a flash drive and sh...

Here's some fun facts: If you take a photograph of the Eiffel Tower at night, you are not free to distribute it without paying a licensing fee, even if you are just posting it on Facebook. Until recently, a major music company owned the rights to the Happy Birthday song and enforced those rights aga...

Re: YSF addons and copyrights... Can you copyright a design that has been stolen?

The more I think about it, I keep coming back to the fact that .dat, .lst, .dnm, .srf, and .fld files are just text files. Text can be copyrighted. If you create, say, a .srf from scratch, the text of that .srf is your original creation. I have personally taken the position that most of my addons ar...

Re: YSF addons and copyrights... Can you copyright a design that has been stolen?

Everything in the internet falls under fair use laws That's not how fair use works, at least in the US. Fair use is a very narrow set of allowances of copyrighted material for a very limited set of reasons (reporting as news, for example). There is no fair use protection for the use of, say, tradem...
