I joined lol.
Check your Discord for a DM from me, and we'll get you set up. Almost all of our community activity outside of YS itself is centered around our Discord server, so I'd recommend sticking around there.

Re: [FEB 13] YSFlight Air & Space Expo (YSAC)

FYI: The show has been tentatively rescheduled to March 20th. Detailed information on the subject is available in the Discord server linked in the first post of the thread. This also means that, for the time being, registrations are still open. If you aren't signed up yet, but still want to get in,...

Re: Making YSflight Videos.

I use Fraps to record all of my videos. It hasn't been updated in a long while, but it's still very useful for people with crap computers, for one main reason: it doesn't do much real-time compression at all, so it has less of an impact on your framerate while recording. The tradeoff for this, of co...

The 2UCW server will now be running full-time on a modified version of 171st and MIRAI Hawaii, with the squadron basing out of Madobe NAS on Molokai. Make sure to download the new map pack!

[SCENERY] 2UCW Hawaii

A further alteration of the classic 171st Hawaii, originally made by Vic Viper for Grun (later MIRAI) in 2016. This version, now to be running full-time on the 2UCW server, is specifically designed to accommodate general air-to-air combat, including squadron operations. Along with Madobe NAS, 2UCW's...

Re: How do I make my mouse control the turret?

You'd be better off just binding the turret control to WASD or the arrow keys and leaving the mouse to fly, because keyboard controls are uniquely horrible for YS. I wouldn't recommend trying to use the mouse for the turret unless you have a stick or other controller to supplant the mouse control wi...

Re: Any recommendations for a flight sim that will not turn your computer into Chernobyl Reactor No.4?

It's not free, but FS2004 is pretty good at running on weak comps. I could run it on a 2010 laptop with 2 GB total RAM.

Re: Do I really need to use an image hosting site like Imgur to preview images correctly?

Unless you plan to turn your computer into a website host just for that, then yes. The internet can't read into your files like that. Besides, using Imgur is pretty simple.

The only way to move the HUD to the combiner is to move the first cockpit view to right in front of the combiner, which is kind of an awkward viewpoint
Or you could take the Violet route and make actual physical HUD glass just for YS. The more complicated the pathway, the funnier the outcome.

I fell asleep listening to this once. Never would've thought the leader of a borderline death metal band would make something so chill.

Since I recorded the show audio, I'm now going back after the fact and shooting the replays, syncing them up with the audio track as best as possible. I'll try to get more of these up over the coming days.
