    My 737 Project

    As some of you know my project has been on hold for a bit due to a move. Of course this entailed completely disassembling the sim! Well, after a few months I am finally getting back to work on it. There where a number of changes I wanted to make to it anyway and where it was it was just too hard to work on. I have decided instead of doing just the pilot side I am going to do Pilot and First Officers side. I have started repairing the MIP that I have it had been modified to fit a real cockpit and of course I have to rebuild the MIP stand. I also need to make a few modifications on the stand so it will hold the 42” Plasma screen that I will be using for the outside view. In the new house I have a “room” that the sim gets all to it’s self and this is going to make things much nicer! As things progress this weekend I will post a few pictures. Happy simming guys!

    Well the test on the 42" monitors went well. I have some pics but at the moment no way to post them. I am also going to completely redo my EPIC and code. Been doing tests on that. I bought the FS Communicator software which does a lot more then just EPIC! Also am just about done rebuilding the MIP. When I got it, it had been modified to fit in a real cockpit. THere was actually a large piece missing. I have replaced that and recut the holes for the landing gear enunciators. Now I just have to get a coat of paint on it. This afternoon I am going to work on the MIP stand and see if I can get that done so I can start to reassemble the pit..... More to come!

    Well... After a long delay I am finally getting back to work, slowly, on the sim. I am working right now trying to finish up the MCP code in EPIC. Should have been done a couple of weeks ago... Don't you just hate when life gets in the way of your hobby??!!
