First Look at Bear Gulch X Buildings

Mea culpa. I meant to post a review of EZDok Camera 1.15 this weekend, but I got caught up in a bunch of work and family stuff and had to let it slip. Part of the busy was working on Emma Field – specifically, the new Bear Gulch buildings that will be included in the package. Lest you think I’ve forgotten about you, here’s this weekend’s work…

FS Utilities: the Unseen & Unsung Heroes – Part 2

If you read last week’s Part 1 installment, you know that I’m having a look at my favorite behind-the-scenes utilities for flight simulator. These are the workhorses of ‘simming; programs that work their magic in the background and make every flight you take just a little bit better.

Sim Saturday!

I didn’t have a chance to ‘sim much at all, and didn’t get a lot of scenery work done, either. Still, I promised myself I would do my best to meet my weekly blogging deadline, so here goes… (I know, way to sell it, Womack.) Continue reading

Fanboy Friday: Stuff I Like

It’s been a hell of a week. I mean that in the original bad sense, as in I’m damn glad it’s nearly over. The details aren’t appropriate for a flightsim blog, but suffice it to say that I’m all too happy to leave the “real world” behind for a while and dig into FS instead. Here’s a grab bag of fun stuff that helped me cope during the past few days… Continue reading

Emma Field X: Olympic Paradise

While Francois is away in Romania, I promised him I’d post some shots of the Emma Field X progress, so here they are. Continue reading

Fanboy Friday: the Slick, the Smoky, and the Bizarre

Usually, I try to organize these Friday posts around a central theme. Today you get a grab-bag of random stuff that’s floating around my desk (and my brain). Prepare yourself. Continue reading
