New to YS Flight! Saying hello!

Post by Av8Tor » Sun Oct 12, 2014 3:50 am

Hello all!

I have been on the Teamspeak now for almost an hour. Been welcomed by a lot of really cool guys! I love it so far.

I have been a flight simulator enthusiast and virtual pilot for about 8 years now, since 2006. I started on Flight Simulator 2004, and then moved to Flight Simulator X. I used these simulators for years, and recently in the last year have stopped using FS9 and FSX. I have flown hundreds of hours on VATSIM and other virtual flying networks. Recently, I have downloaded YS Flight, and one thing that I am starting to get used to is the simplicity! It is so much easier to get in and start flying, it doesn't take 30 minutes of flight planning, weather charts, downloading approach plates, etc. I can get in, and fly. I am looking for some nice aircraft and scenery, and utilities. I downloaded Major Pack 1 and like what I see (however, I get a few errors on start up).

Not to ramble though! I like what I see so far, and look forward to getting involved and becoming a contributing member of the community!!

Safe skies.

Grant

I like FS9, but YSF really is a lot simpler. Welcome to YSFHQ.

Welcome!
Nice to hear you got my pack and like it.

Gotta say your post makes me want to fix my stuff up more.
Those few errors got to be annoying for people.

Problem is I live in China and dont use a VPN.
So google, blogspot, youtube and what have you are no-go on internet.
Now with HK acting up its worse than ever. Yahoo blocked too.
(blocking crappy news... guess it wasnt that crappy)

anyway, hello av8tor!
(in case youre wondering, yes YSupload works well for the upcoming A-26 Invader!)

Glad to have ya here! Yes I must say, simplicity is one of the main attractions about YS. I'll see you around! Since you have VATSIM experience, you MAY be interested in our upcoming YS-ATC events!

I believe we talked on TS yesterday but I'd like to welcome you again, hope you have fun! We are working on a YSATC "guild" so to speak, of course, like all things YS, it will be pretty simple as well. But it should be a lot of fun too!

My general rant: I will call them blended winglets, not Sharklets; There is no CEO, it's just simply put, an Airbus 319/320/321, or the 320NEO, 321NEO etc. I didn't land IN DAL, I landed AT DAL. On the other hand, I did land in Dallas.

Hi! I make average, undesirable, boring grey maps for YS Flight!

Welcome! Always a pleasure to find people who love the simplicity of YSF! Lots of cool addons out there. I'd recommend the CEP and Oranleed Packs. They are from the japanese community, but generally very good.

Also check out YSUpload.com! Great addons there.

EDIT: I was able to find some things in other threads... Excited!

I am looking around at some packages and have found some very cool stuff. One thing that I have wondered about is, are there more addons that add things like more complex navigation (like autopilot navigation to VORs and Navaids), or more detailed maps, etc? Anything on the User Interface side?

Maps, ground objects, and vehicles can be modified, but the workings of the game itself are coded only by the Captain.

You can use any VOR, ILS, etc. that are placed in a map for navigation. I think there are a few maps around that have realistic placement of such things. There is a topic on here somewhere that shows how to use the navigation systems in YS.

Not really, there is an auto pilot but only for military power only, and for the following conditions (not the correct order)

Straight level flight
circle at constant altitude
take off
land

if you are within range of the VOR then it will show up in the navigation menu (forget the key atm). Set it as you target and you can then match headings and set the level autopilot.
