  • Optimising & tweaking Prepar3D v.5 graphics performance
  • content_pasteI enjoy flying the F-16 fast and at treetop level... who wouldn't! But at all levels I was getting stuttering and slowdowns. The stuttering being much more immersion breaking that any slowdown. Anyway, cutting to the chase after hours and hours and hours over many nights, I worked out the single most important graphic setting (for my rig). And it's one I would NEVER have guessed.

    "Well, last week I had the chance to fly 1.5 hours and two landings. It was quite an experience. We went through all the aerobatic exercises (I told him: go as you like. And boy, he did!).
    First time I felt what it is to black out due to high g's. I also had the privilege to fly the "normal" route by myself, with him only telling me the heading and altitude, and instructing me otherwise. "

  • content_pasteA colorful picture book about humans going to Mars, how they might realistically go about this, and where this might lead in the future. The missions were simulated with specially developed add-ons in the freeware Orbiter space flight simulator, and most of the graphics are screen captures from Orbiter, though some are real photos from NASA. Intended for ages 10 to adult, the book includes an appendix with details for each page, including information on the add-ons used in Orbiter to create the images.

The craft is a few years old now but still cool (the look is still much the same - I downloaded a lot of the Apollo stuff but have not tried any yet, as I'm still trying to achieve the orbit I want and maneuver with thrusters).

    The addon people for this thing are maniacs, and the Forum is the one of the most multinational I have ever seen -- 12 year old kids in India to retired USAF guys in Colorado to all sorts of people around Europe, some Australia, etc.

  • content_pasteThe release of Orbiter 2006, the latest version of this comprehensive freeware space flight simulator, has been announced. Orbiter offers accurate physics, excellent 3D graphics, astronomy features, and a first-person astronaut's perspective.

    Created as an educational project by Dr. Martin Schweiger of University College London, Orbiter has been in development since 2000. Orbiter allows users to virtually experience many aspects of space flight, including launching to orbit, orbital maneuvering, rendezvous/docking with the International Space Station, deploying satellites from the space shuttle, and even flying to the Moon, Mars, and beyond.
