    Kai Tak IGS 13 Landing (Video)

    Just another one from my newly-flyable sim. Really enjoying this! Approach, landing, and taxi in at the now closed Kai Tak airport in Hong Kong. The outstanding scenery is from FlyTampa. Hope you enjoy it.. comments welcome!

    Damn nice sim Chris and perfect landing. Very colourful scenery also. You can see why so many builders choose to be jet jockies when you look at the final cockpit result at night. I too would be interested in your setup details.

    A iconic textbook approach. Excellent flying. Your sim is excellent. This is the sort of thing i want to be looking very soon in my own flight deck.

    Re: Kai Tak IGS 13 Landing (Video)

    Thanks for the comments, guys!

    From another thread re my setup:

    Software setup is FS9.1, PM, and Thomas Richter's great 737NG software for PMSystems. Visuals are TH2GO, SOL7 warping software, and three EX525ST short throw beamers (not entirely happy with the resolution; looking to upgrade at this time). Everything's running across 6 PCs.

    The sounds came from the library here at MyCockpit, but I've made some pretty extensive modifications to them, mixing sounds from a few other packages in, adjusting levels, etc. The gear sound, I believe, is standard from the soundpack I downloaded from here.

    True artistry Chris,
    It makes me almost want to go back out buy all the parts I sold, connect them to all i still have and do it all over again. Beautiful Chris very motivational. I still remember flying that exact route in mine, all 3 of my CDUs lit up, FCU numbers lit, radios and pedestal lights reflecting off the MIP man sweeeeeeeeeeeeet! , all the overhead operating and rumble under my seat.Gives me goose bumps, thanks again for that brief walk down memorry lane Chris, you have an awesome sim there.Funny Gary was just here visiting and he says he still thinks what I have is awesome lol. Well Gary as the pic on the wall I showed ya, I wish it had looked like it did before for ya.By the hope all is well mate, don't forget to practice

    Not entirely sure, to be honest. I would like to go to something at least one step higher (1280x1024 native). Not that the 1024x768 is necessarily bad; I just know it could be better.

    I have the room space to use standard throw projectors, but I used short throws because I can mount them directly on top of my shell and keep the impact to the rest of the room minimal. The ceiling just behind my shell also increases in height by a couple of feet, meaning I'd have to build some sort of mounting structure from the floor to use standard throw beamers.

    That would mean a wooden structure sitting in the middle of an otherwise unobstructed (and thus usable) floor. I obviously already have a very tolerant girlfriend.. but that might be pushing things a bit!
