  1. And it’s done!! And even more amazingly it bloody works!!
  2. Stage one of the project is done, soldered all my rotary encoder pins to cables and tested them with the board I got. So far so good, the game controller setting recognise all my dial turns and button presses. Tomorrow I need to drill out the junction box I’m using as a case and mount everything and configure it in FSUIPC. Then I will have eight lovely rotary controllers for all my heading and autopilot controls! WIP photo from earlier...
  3. Up to Rank 6 and it’s yet to get particularly challenging, but I’m fine with that. It’s such a delight to play, aside from the odd bizarre interpretation of gestures. Would love a full Everybody’s Golf type game with this control scheme.
  4. This is really making me want a PS5. Highly doubtful but keeping fingers crossed it might get a PC port down the line
  5. @layten haha My other project at the moment is building a custom controller with 8 rotary encoders so I can manage flight systems without a mouse. So yeah, maybe Feb 22 prediction isn’t far wrong
  6. I will warn people though, this isn’t “fun” like most games (or most good games). It’s fascinating, rewarding, beautiful, utterly absorbing and a genuine leap forward, truly next gen. But it is a sim, there’s no real goals or career or anything. It’s just about immersing yourself simultaneously in the detail and the spectacle. If you lean in to learning about glide slopes, how navigation systems work, learning about SIDS and STARs etc it’s the most rewarding game around IMO but it takes time. And can often be quite boring
  7. You’re in for a treat. 100 hours down on PC now and I still feel like I’m scratching the surface. Currently working my way across the alps and Mediterranean coast in the new bush trip. It’s wonderful. Also upgraded my Warthog stick to a Virpil gimbal and grip (keeping the throttle) just because reasons
  8. Enjoy! It's genuinely mind blowing that 6 months post-launch these things are still gold dust. Ridiculous
  9. Now is always the best time to be a gamer. Every year, more games to choose from. I think now is a fucking ace time to be a gamer. This year I’ve mastered flying a Cessna, built an interplanetary factory, played a lovely little game of golf on my phone in bed, got back in to Witcher 3 because it loads/reloads about a billion times quicker on my PC, AND still have an entire history of games that are super easy to download on a whim. And even found a good Ubisoft game (fenyx rising). You’re just not looking in the right place. There’s tonnes of good shit out there. You probably just nee
  10. I started a separate thread on Dyson Sphere Program but it sunk without a trace, but it’s brilliant and quite distinct from Factorio. And it blows my mind a small team of under resourced youngsters from China knocked it out in a couple of years - it’s a marvellous game. Worth a £12 punt for sure. It’s also quite pretty
  11. Played a few rounds now and feel like I’ve got a grip on it, but the putting seems much less forgiving than the PlayStation games. Think it’s because any deviation from stroking exactly vertical causes a slight direction change, plus you really seem to have to hit the hole dead centre. Great fun though all round
  12. This is rather lovely already. What a brilliant surprise
  13. Gave it a quick bash this evening with a new character (on PC) after giving up on it before Christmas. Seemed great, fixed some weird glitches I had. Then it crashed. Ho hum
  14. Any benefit for AMD 3000 series owners. Got a 3080FE AND Ryzen 3700x. Figure I have assorted BIOSs and VBIOSs to update?
