Absolutely - pending any disasters (e.g., airlift Santa from Tahiti to the North Pole, kicking and screaming :shock: )

And who doesn't love ATC ??? :?: :?: Can I get the VOR Rwy 15 approach to EFKU (from the south, so I can fly the HILPT)? :P

There have been a limited number of us doing the testing but by then I expect that we can get a nice batch of folks on. Since there is some time between now and then if you want to arrange a "shakedown" session to be sure everything is in order just let me know.

It's not an event per se, but trying to build up interest in air racing with JoinFS. There is a group that has been using boxed FSX but is testing JoinFS for air racing which lets FSX:SE and P3D users play too. There is a vertical motion issue in turns with JoinFS but Peter is on it. It still works great though and I was on the course last night with one of the FASA guys with JoinFS. We were setting up for a race when company came over so no actual rave experience yet but I have been building races with JoinFS overdub and it is amazing looking. They were running races nightly so easy to have pick up races and practice.

Here is a post I made on another bbs with the details:

If anyone is interested, there are a group of guys doing air racing and they have a class freeware T-6 with liveries available: http://www.fsxairsports.com/air_racing/classes/t6/

It's not as nice as the A2A T6 but is tweaked to match the racing T6s in performance and have realistic responses to the controls.

They use the Digital Theme Park TeamSpeak server and have a channel on there if anyone wants to meet up and fly races with them.

They also have pylon slalom courses, do short field landing (STOL) competitions, and such. The videos are old but to give a taste:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mhB2ky5Us8

As an aside, they use boxed FSX but are now using PMEM's JoinFS to allow boxed and SE to fly together.

And another post...

I don't know if one of my scenery packs put course pylons out but there is a Reno mission that hopefully has pylons in the right places. Hadn't looked at the Reno scenery since installing Orbx global and base but I had pylons in I think all the right places. Anyway, here are the official Reno courses:

http://airrace.org/wp-content/uploads/2 ... seMap1.jpg

FASA is working on a photoreal scenery pack and has a preliminary version available where the pylons show up well and they also have the guide arrows and such that are painted on the ground to help with lining up. Also a lit pylon for the unlimiteds.

Guys, in VR a race looks extremely cool. I haven't run one yet but have been using JoinFS to record flights and then fly with a pack as I have been practicing so have seen a group of planes bank and pull. It looks amazing! And the fear factor is big with other planes in close and moving around.

Good to hear Grumpy.

I know it's a strange time in some parts of the world so I picked a zulu Saturday as opposed to a Sunday, so that people in your neck of the woods could still join in and not have to worry about being late for work.

And you can always go to the later service. ;)

Hi Robert,

I have the T6, I'd like to join you for some racing at Reno. Just post a time (I'm on GMT). We could connect through the US Central server if you have that bookmarked?

Hey Peter, that would be great! Might be able to get Tony from the FlyInside BBS in too, maybe 8055, and more remote would be the other FASA guys though some interest does seem to maybe be building? We'll see.

It's 5:00 PM GMT right now. How about 7:00 PM GMT? What is the US Central sever? Is that JoinFS or TeamSpeak? The FASA guys use Digital Theme Park (ts3.digitalthemepark.com with no password) and have their own rooms. Are you are referring to a JoinFS server. But whatever works is fine by me. Could be just us but that's OK too.

Just let me know and I'll be on a little early trying to stir up some other pilots. We can run some laps to get used to the course if you aren't already and then race! :D

The US Central TeamSpeak is fsxfuscentral.dynu.com, and the JoinFS server is 70.178.13.66.

Unfortunately I can't make 1900z, but how about 2100z?

2100Z might be better for getting others on if they can make it. Tony is a great multiplayer pilot and said he was going to be on today. And I'd like to get Alan in there since he is FASA and knows all the courses and much more about racing.

Will get set up on both servers. :D
