Introduction

Post by Schwarzwald » Sun Feb 02, 2014 8:22 am

Hey all,

I've been a decade long passionate user of YSFlight and until recently I though I was one of the few people who still actually used it, with the simplistic graphics turning the majority of my friends whom I tried to convert away. Much to my own embarrassment, I never even considered searching for an online community. So I am overjoyed to find such a well organised and coherent place with numerous fans and users of, in my opinion, one of the best programs available today.

A bit about myself, I'm 17 living in Australia about to enter University, I enjoy programming in Python and Java and am an avid Blender user.

I'd love to help out in anyway I can, actually, I couple of months ago I started work on a Save File Automator written in Java (because I got tired of filling out the Create Air Combat dialog and I wanted to recreate The Battle of Britain), I got to a basic stage before final High School Exams, if anyone is interested I can dig it up again.

Apologies for the length, I am just really happy that there is a vibrant community surrounding such a brilliant program.

Horray! 700th member! Hello and welcome
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for my signature, I can tell you I don't have one. But what I do have are a very particular lack of skills, skills I have imagined having over a very long career. Skills that make me are completely useless in any situation. If you stop reading now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't stop reading, I will look for you, I will probably not find you, and I will kill your refrigerator.

Do not apologize for length! :D We all want to get to know you well.

You mentioned being an avid blender person...what version do you like to use? You might be interested in seeing what modding is done in blender. You can check out some of the work going on here.

Hello me boy!

From which state do you hail?

I'm a New South Whaler (Hunter) my self. :D
I am an accountant working full-time (and some). I'm not here as often as I would like to be. Send a message if you need me. There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!
