    Flight Question Default Delta Glider: V2 and CRS (two features)

    Yeah and about the pressure readings above, 101.3 kPa is typically the pressure you can expect at sea level on Earth. The cabin pressure is "rounded" to 100 kPa (so that we can see a difference ;)). What would be very cool is to start adding controls like the DGIV had, being able to adjust the...

    Yes tsunami alert in the Pacific Ocean, a 3 meters-high wave was expected.

    Question What games are you playing?

    Yeah I remember we talked about a SAR hydroplane some time ago... I guess we can add this one to the "short list".

    Question What games are you playing?

    That's it, the Beriev Be-12. Seems it also had / still has civilian duties like maritime rescue.

    Here you go, it isn't Orbiter-specific : https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/showthread.php?250495-Difference-between-course-and-heading

    Flight Question Default Delta Glider: V2 and CRS (two features)

    The DeltaGlider has an airlock so you have a set of valves to operate it properly. Now there's no "explosive decompression game over" but the display shows the pressure values inside the cabin, inside the airlock and outside the airlock. CRS means "course" there, I think the DeltaGlider AP is...

    Found a new serie from Arte... Excellent stuff and a huge lot of work, they made pretty much the whole history of mankind. Man we can thank the Soviet Commander of the B-59 submarine for not being trigger-happy 😳

    That one is a beauty, if someone feels like to model it in Orbiter :

    Question What games are you playing?

    Yeah it seems the real big problem is target acquisition. Without a primary radar, there's no way to accurately point the missile in the right direction... Sure passive sonar can pick something like a Tu-95 flying right above the waves, but even there the detection range is limited. Well maybe...

    Question Land ownership of the Moon?

    You can see it as a "theoretical property".

    Question What games are you playing?

    I was thinking about it : if they can make torpedo-launched missiles, why not anti-air stuff ? So, it exists.

    Question What games are you playing?

    lol you quite wasted them, I feel sorry for that civilian ship, but obviously it wasn't right the place to be at this moment :ROFLMAO: ASW planes are very dangerous, they drop a sonobuoy then a torpedo right above your head, then deep charges clusters for good measure. In shallow waters there...

    Question What games are you playing?

    So after action report from action above : 1 November took a MK-37 and had to retreat surfacing. 1 Novermber took 2x MK-37 and was sunk. The "trawler" turned out to be a Soviet supply ship under a Vietnamese flag. A MK-16 found some use there. So, not a bad day, mission accomplished, as that...

    Question What games are you playing?

    Now that's interesting... MK-37s hunting Novembers hunting whales... And I hadn't noticed that sneaky S6... Sturgeon is a good boat, a bit slow but real quiet and deep-diving. And S6 turned out to be a distant trawler. We're good. Actually the only good thing with the MK-37 is that it is so...

    Question What games are you playing?

    Getting into Cold Waters, that 1968 campaign is driving me nuts... the MK-37 torpedoes are quite a joke, and you simply have to deal with that, the only other ordinance available are the unguided MK-16 which are WW2 relics... The only good thing is that most of Soviet subs are naval drumkits...

    Updates James Webb Space Telescope updates

    I'd say the lesson there (and IMHO the glimmer of hope in this sad world) is that it shows that international partnerships can achieve incredible things. (y)

    Being myself a philosophy teacher I can tell this is very good stuff : I love how he makes the lesson right from the book, I hope to get to that level one day !

    Problem Any fix for the rotation issue in AMSO 2016

    I have an old MS Sidewinder 2 and it tends to do that, if the stick goes to the left of the "deadzone" it inputs a slight left roll, which caused a lot of virtual crashes to me (before I realized that the "dead zone" wasn't that "dead" at all).

    This is the limit of current science, and where it gets close from belief and religion. Let's hope JWST will contribute to give us some answers. (y)
