The Sim
« on: August 17, 2017, 06:06:02 PM »
Well after several months of not being where my sim is, I am, as I type this, on my way back home. Work will start on the sim in just a few days as I have several boxes waiting my arrival! I will give the shop a good clean and then start working on my beloved 73. Photos, streams and tantrums to follow!  :P

Well work has started. I have the cockpit a mess! lol Working on installing the new MIP. Reworking the entire MIP stand to accommodate the new panels is a little more fun then I had thought it would be but that just may be because I have missed working on this monster. I will post a pick today. More to come....

I received some of the Korrys I needed for the new MIP today. So guess what I will be dong! lol Wiring to do! I started the redesign of the MIP stand so I can mount the MIP. I need a small piece of plywood and do you think I can find a chunk the size I need? Nope...lol  :D

Well worked until the wee hours of  morning on this. Not really I actually flew until the wee hours... I did all the work over the last couple of days. Installed P3Dv4 and massive work on the displays. What a difference! The new MIP is coming along as well. You can't tell it but I raised the MCP about 3 inches to get it to the right hight. Now I have to change the way it is mounted so I can mount the MIP. Here are a couple shots from a flight last night:

Well 2 more flights under my belt. Pretty happy overall. A little more tweaking with the visuals needs to be done but they look good. Going to update all the PM software today. Of course after I make backups of all the folders! lol

Well after a week flying other peoples sims I came home and went right back to work. My visuals are set up rather strangely as I have some heavy cutting to do in the front of the sim. I have been putting that off because it is going to make a HUGE mess when I do it. Having said that my visuals have never looked better! WOW! I am now starting work on the new MIP. So much to do  ;D Here are a couple pictures of the visuals as they stand:

In reality there are 4 but windows sees them as 3. With my older i7 second gen it is a pretty good hit on the frames. But I am keeping right around 20 at my lowest. (we will see if that holds true into KDFW! lol) I need to make some changes to the front of the sim so I can move the monitors all closer to the cab and then I can use a much nicer monitor layout. Right now there are some pretty holes in between the front and sides. And the pictures do not do it justice!  ;D

Well 2 really good flights today. The day pics where on my way to KSFO and the night ones are on my way from KSFO to KDFW. More tweaking on some of the software. And now for the pics:
