Hi Flyboys :)

Post by =*=ToPGuN=*= » Mon Mar 21, 2011 2:30 pm

Namaste (+joined hands{It's a kind of greeting :) }) from India. I am avid flight simmer & aircraft enthusiast & am always on the look out for new flightsims. I try to fly in the little space time that I get, even though my poor PC config doesn't permit me to enjoy flight sims to the fullest. Got hooked on to flightsims ever since I played Evasive Action in 1994. My bro & me used to play it split-screen & it was fun. Had also installed YSFlight for the first time in 2002. However, must have put the CPU rendered settings in error as the graphics were a turn-off. Fast forward to a month ago and I came across the excellent Contrails Productions videos made using YSFlight. So became aware of the amazing aircraft add-ons & maps which you guys painstakingly make....btw..I found this forum to be a very well structured & organized. Keep up the good work guys :)

Always a pleasure to meet a fellow enthusiast. Welcome to the forum man, I know you'll enjoy it here. Yes it's true, YSF has come a long way since its creation.

Welcome, thanks for t he comments about the forum structure, we tried to make it simple yet appealing. Have a read through and we hope we can help to make your YSFlight sim run on as high setting as we can while keeping lag low. That is after all one of the pluses of YSFlight.

Thank you all for the warm welcome :)

@Neil ..very nice to hear that...I do have a couple of relatives & their families in the UK (from my Grandma's side of the family)

@vandal ..just a small question...is there any way where recent comments made on posts & posts where activity is high can be viewed in one place? ..something like the 'recent topics' column on the left hand side of the YSPilots main page..I feel it might be useful.

On another note, I can't seem to upload pic files for my avatar or any photo attachment. In the Forum's 'User Control Panel' there is a Manage attachments, but I am unable to find an upload button over there. Any help would be much appreciated.

@ Kynan: Why should that suck? It forces people who register to make an account on one of those uploaders, which they later can use to upload pictures. Btw, I think when you register here, you also have to put some effort in it. But that's just my opinion.

@ Topgun: Awesome to have new members! I think you will fit here well. Happy flying! :D

A 'recent topic' bar has been suggested but I'm not sure how far we got to implementing it, so I will check with Iceman as to the status of that. I is a good idea and something that would be useful.

On the note about your avatar, you need to upload it to an image hosting website then put a direct link to the image to get it to work.

This is the closest I will get to a real fighter jet :D ...besides the virtual flying :P .Me in front of the Mig-29 ..taken at a static display show some years ago.

*Mod not: Try not to double post, if you have extra to add to a topic and you are the last person to post, please edit your last post. Thanks, Vandal.

TopGun, try not to double post. Either edit or wait for someone else to post.

Sven, if you had taken the time to read his first post you would realize this gentleman hails from India. Since this is your first warning I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. Just try to be more considerate next time.

Nice Mig-29 there Top Gun. Any other noteworthy aircraft catch your eye?

Thank you Vic Viper :) . There were quite a few aircraft like an SU-30MKI, Jaguar, MIG-27, MIG-21, Mi-8, Anatov 32..etc...it was a very small static display of aircraft ...but it was significant as it was never done in Mumbai before & we haven't had such displays any more after that. As I live just 15 minutes away from where they had the static display, it was a great opportunity to get to be there & see all these aircraft...which I normally would only get to see on TV.

For more information & a few pics of the static display you can check out the link below.

So in your opinion, who will win the Indian MRCA competition? I'd like to see the Typhoon or Gripen win it, they seem to be the best choices.
