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

Re: YSFlight Wishlist

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: [BONEYARD] Individual Airports

Thanks for bumping this 6-year old post. I don't have these installed on my new computer and thought I was going to have to go through the old hard drive on my old computer to find them. :lol: All of my maps use stock ground objects and my ground object pack. I don't know if any of them have other g...

my sending an aircraft that's publicly available for free to somebody else directly without the consent of the modder is a no-no?

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.

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

I was just looking at the Mod forum at the SCS forums (American/Euro Truck Simulator) for something completely unrelated and noticed they had a prominent warning about mods using intellectual property from other companies. Basically they stated that they do not allow paid mods because when money get...

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...

Re: Weather in your area 2021

It's looking like the edge of the worst part of the storm in West Tenn. is going to be scooting right up against my area. They already had tornados along the Miss. River. It's raining and we're having some lightning nearby, but it looks like a rough patch is about 2 minutes away and will be here and...

We had thunderstorms and a lot of rain yesterday. Looking at the forecast, it looks like we will have more rain and thunderstorms tomorrow. Springtime in Tennessee.

Re: Can't open

Why would you (seemingly) join a forum to ask for help and then claim the help that was offered was wrong without even trying it?

Because Ken is being a maverick! :lol:

Today in West Tennessee we are having a lot of rain and some thunderstorms. The weather says we are supposed to have strong storms into early morning tomorrow, but the future radar looks like it is going to be cleared out by 4 PM, so I don't know. Mississippi looks like it is going to get hit hard, ...

Re: Are there any servers alive?

The bottom line is that there are probably only a few of us who are somewhat active in the HQ community. It's never going to be "active" in the way that AAA online games or MS Flight Simulator are going to be active. I don't remember a time when: A. Servers were significantly more active or B. Someo...
