Re: The best and worst flight sim

What exactly does OpenYS do? Soji really shouldn't abandon DirectX. Not everyone has a Linux supercomputer. Adding another least favourite flight simulator: X-Plane. The desktop version. I kinda do like the mobile version, despite it's limitations and microtransactions, but the desktop version reall...

Which engine, Garrett or PT6A?

I'm confused. Which engine is better, the PT6A or the TPE-331? Noise aside (the Garrett's made me a little bit deaf).

I already know the technical aspects, I just want to know which is better overall?

Re: The best and worst flight sim

Ah, welcome, Belmont!

Yes, FlightGear is definitely garbage. Though it does have some potential.

So the golden era of YSFlight has come to an end.
Off-topic, but same goes for Minecraft. Its golden age ended some time ago. Mojang has gone the way of Soji.

Re: The best and worst flight sim

Well, there's that. There really should be a "clear goal and vision", as you said. Thing is, one has to convince Soji of the benefits of doing such a thing-and warn him about doing the mistakes Linus Torvalds, for example, did when he open sourced Linux; basically, warn him of the mistakes many othe...

Re: The best and worst flight sim

Releasing a game to the public comes with some pretty big responsibilities: maintaining the game, listening to your fanbase, not screwing up the game, etc. If he doesn't want to keep releasing stable versions, he should simply announcement that YSFlight development has come to an end, and that the g...

Re: The best and worst flight sim

I've been on this forum for about half a year now. Not new around here. I already got a message from Indy about this issue, and I replied to him today. Thing is, Captain YS needs to get off his butt and get back to actually releasing stable versions of YSFlight. Not the garbage versions he's releasi...

Re: The best and worst flight sim

At no point could YSFlight be considered to be in serious competition as a flight simulator. So comparing it to FSX or any mainstream flight simulators is wishful thinking at best, as the tagline, anything is possible in YSFlight proves that point. Really? I thought I saw, "YSFlight is the only fre...

Re: The best and worst flight sim

Worst: YSFlight as of 2018 (close to unusable now, super buggy, broken everything). Flight Gear is also here. Best: Digital Combat Simulator (DCS) I haven't tried the new version of YSFlight that you mentioned; maybe you could message Captain YS about the new versions being buggy, so he might fix t...

The best and worst flight sim

What's the best and the worst flight sims for you? For me: Worst: FlightGear (garbage, potato graphics, runs slowly even on a relatively powerful computer AND at lowest graphics, giant program size for what it is) Best: Flight Simulator X (runs very well, decent graphics, for 25 bucks you get a dece...

Re: I just noticed this...

Also, my posts get deleted, and I have no idea why. Post on another thread? Whole thread's gone. The whole thread. I complained about this on AM3, but the thread's gone now. I might as well write this on YSFHQ, where it actually stays up.

Re: I just noticed this...

The Bear. is everywhere. He pretty much runs the AM3 forum. MDCairways is also everywhere. He usually writes guides. Turbofan does this somewhat. Genisys Air is also everywhere. He's you in that-well, he's everywhere, just like The Bear. P.S. I'm Bacon Airways. I'm not kidding, that's my username on...

I just noticed this...

I play Airline Manager 3 on my phone (look it up on your app store). There are many people who have equals here on YSFHQ. There's this player called "The Bear. [sic]". He's to AM3 what Flake is to YSFlight. There's also MDCairways. He's essentially Turbofan. There's also Genisys Air. He's Welshy. An...

Re: Idea for an airline

I contacted these airlines by their applications to join. No response, even though it's been well over 3 weeks since. As for the airline responsibility, I've got a potato PC, no server, no modding expertise, no money to spare. I take it back; I don't think I'll be able to found and maintain my own a...

Idea for an airline

I don't know if this will ever happen, nothing ever goes right with me, but I'm thinking of making a virtual airline. I've already applied to two virtual airlines- Cal-Air and NatComAir- and haven't gotten a response from either. I might as well found my own.

A name for this far fetched idea?

Re: [AIRCRAFT] DC-10-10 Beta Pack

I found out that YSFlight runs a lot better with this model by running it in Direct3D mode. My PC is still underpowered. As I said before, a nice pack of DC-10's.
