  1. I am interested in this as well !
  2. FSD is just to lazy to learn how to program for XPX...
  3. Mathijs, I order the early December X-Plane 10 directly from Laminar Research. Will I be able to order the enhanced high detailed European airports, medium density airports and the low density airports as an ADD-ON to the early December release ? Regards.........
  4. Mathijs will you be converting Maderia and the Katana4x ?
  5. New images of XPLANE-10 http://www.x-plane.com/news/

    AFS 2012...

    I hope you convert Madeira to Xplane-10. Thats one of my favorite scenery products Ive bought from Aerosoft ! And don't forget the new Katana ! Hopefully you can fix the backlighting of the gauges so you can take advantage of the new lighting that Xplane-10 has !
  8. Gotcha. Ok so why not add back lighting for the gauges ?
  9. Whats bump mapping ? How do we turn it off so the flood light works ?
  10. None, are you offering ? lol... I stand corrected if she slips like the real thing.
  11. What floodlight ? Are you talking about the map floodlight ? When I click on it, it doesn't seem to flood the VC with any light ? Anyways, I was flying the Katana in the sim today ! You did a really fantastic job with her !! She feels and looks good aside from the lack of the prop effects and guage lighting. You know what would be really cool is if you can add some more smudges and dirt to the windows ! Kind of like what Real Air did with thier latest plane. Regards........
  12. That totally kills the immersion fator for me. I have about 40 hours in a 172 and you can see the prop at especially at lower RPMs and less of it at higher RPMs but it's not totally invisible. How many people complained that are real pilots ?? I never really gave it to much thought when I was flying a real plane but I will check next time I go up. Correct me if im wrong. I notice the plane doesn't slip very well either ? Regards........
  13. DA 20-100 Katana: Why is the prop not visible when the engine is running ? Is this realistic ? And there is no back lighting for the gauges ??? I'm guessing it's not certified to fly at night ???
  14. DA 20-100 Katana: Why isn't the prop visible when the engine is running ? Is that realistic ? And there is no back lighting for the gauges ???
  15. Korea Conflict May Be Orchestrated Crisis To Boost Dollar Paul Joseph Watson Infowars.com November 23, 2010 Congressman Ron Paul speculated on the Alex Jones Show today that the war footing between North and South Korea could be an orchestrated crisis to boost the dollar and reverse the US economy, paralleling the RAND Corporation’s call two years ago for the United States to become embroiled in a major war as a means of preventing a double dip recession. South Korea admitted that it fired the first shots prompting a North Korean retaliation that killed two South Korean Marines and set ablaze many homes on the Yellow Sea border island of Yeonpyeong. Tensions are running dangerously high after North Korea’s military vowed a “merciless military strike” and South Korean President Lee Myung-bak ordered his military to strike North Korea’s missile base around its coastline artillery positions if the North made any further moves. Japan announced that it was preparing for “any eventuality” while Russia said the events represented a “colossal danger” to peace in the region. Stock markets sank worldwide while the dollar and gold bullion rallied in response to the news. Speaking to the Alex Jones Show, Congressman Paul said it was frightening that people in the Obama administration were advocating war as a means of escaping the economic crisis, saying that North Korea stood no chance whatsoever of successfully defeating South Korea in any conflict. Paul speculated that the US military-industrial complex was, “Doing it deliberately, and sort of orchestrating this in order to have the military-industrial complex benefit and the dollar temporarily benefit.” As we highlighted two years ago when the story first broke, the RAND Corporation has been aggressively lobbying the Pentagon to become embroiled in a major new war to jump-start a recovery of the US economy and boost profits for the military-industrial complex after the scaling down of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Chinese media sources reported that RAND had presented a proposal to the Pentagon that revolved around fostering a conflict with a major foreign power in order to stimulate the American economy and prevent a double dip recession. Although at the time RAND considered North Korea on its own to be too small a target, any full scale confrontation between the Koreas would embroil the United States on the side of the South and China on the side of the North. If North Korea were to tap its arsenal of nuclear weapons, the entire international community would quickly rubber stamp a US-led military assault on the rogue nation. Given the fact that North Korea’s nuclear belligerency has its foundations in the best efforts of people like Donald Rumsfeld and the Bush administration, through the AQ Khan weapons trading network, to provide Communist agitator Kim Jong-Il and his hereditary successor with nuclear weapons, the fact that we are now seeing tensions reach boiling point represents a huge opportunity for the US military-industrial complex to manipulate into being the massive war that they have been seeking for years.
  16. TSA Rejects Airport Molestation Complaints Paul Joseph Watson Infowars.com November 9, 2010 The TSA has reacted to the burgeoning backlash against airport oppression with a glib response that does nothing to address the multitude of complaints put forward by some of the most prominent travel and pilots associations in the world. As the New York Times reports today, no less than four major travel organizations have strongly criticized the TSA in recent weeks over increasingly stifling airport security measures that do little to assure safety yet are causing many people to refuse to travel to the United States, costing the industry millions of dollars a year. "In recent weeks, representatives from the International Air Transport Association, the U.S. Travel Association, the Allied Pilots Association and British Airways have criticized the T.S.A., saying it adds intrusive and time-consuming layers of scrutiny at airport checkpoints, without effectively addressing legitimate security concerns," states the report. The U.S. Travel Association is warning that onerous and "absurd" security procedures, which are only getting worse with the TSA's recent move to institute outright groping of passengers that would be considered sexual assault in any other context, are discouraging people from air travel. Giovanni Bisignani, chief executive of the International Air Transport Association, said that the notion of passengers as guilty until proven innocent was also a complete misnomer. "Discouraging travelers with queues into the parking lot is not a solution," Mr. Bisignani said during a speech last week. "And it is not acceptable to treat passengers as terrorists until they prove themselves innocent." As we reported yesterday, the largest independent union of airline pilots in the world is also urging its members to boycott body imaging machines currently being rolled out in airports all over the globe, citing dangers of excessive exposure to harmful levels of radiation during the screening process. The announcement by the Allied Pilots Association came after a ExpressJet Airlines, Inc pilot Michael Roberts was detained and suspended for refusing to be scanned. Last month, British Airways Chairman Martin Broughton called for the UK to stop mimicking "completely redundant" security measures instituted by the TSA, calling for them to be immediately scrapped. Longer waits in security queues are causing many to scale back air travel altogether. The Times cites the example of Cornell Professor Dieter Ast, who refuses to submit to naked body scanners. "I'm not taking as many trips," Professor Dieter said. "And my European friends are avoiding the U.S. because of the hassle." But it's not just longer waiting times and enhanced groping measures that are causing the outrage, countless examples of abuse and degradation, particularly involving the elderly, the physically disabled, women and children, involving TSA thugs have prompted many potential tourists to refuse to travel to the United States. As a result of a seemingly deliberate policy to humiliate and demean weaker members of society, US airport security, not just TSA agents but also Homeland Security goons, have attracted an odious reputation globally as something akin to the East German Stasi who controlled border security in pre-perestroika Berlin. The TSA has responded to the controversy by offering nothing more than a terse email statement which glibly states, "T.S.A. is a counterterrorism agency whose mission is to ensure the safety of the traveling public. To that end, T.S.A. deploys the latest technologies and implements comprehensive procedures that protect passengers while facilitating travel." It looks like it's going to take a raft of lawsuits and compensation claims to scale back TSA tyranny and that's the course taken by the Electronic Privacy Information Center in its bid to prove that the naked body scanners are dangerous and completely illegal. Until the TSA realizes that its job is to provide rational and sensible security screening to protect the American people and the vast majority of innocent travelers from the infinitesimal percentage of bad guys that try to board airplanes, and not to treat every single person as not just a terrorist, but in many cases lower than an animal in the levels of abuse metered out, the backlash against airport molestation will continue to build and it will end up costing the US government billions in lost tourism revenue as well as lawsuits against TSA thugs.
  17. " All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent" The thread is about Pictures and Terrorist. I have news for you, 911 was an Inside Job. The Government is using the excuse of fighting Terrorism to bring in the Police State. When the Dollar is done Collapsing (underway) and people start to Wake Up from their hypnotic trance; the government is going to need a fascist police state to keep the people from rising up and having another Revolution. "If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy." "The means of defense against foreign danger historically have become the instruments of tyranny at home" "
  18. Getting Some Rays: Forget Radar, Now the Government is X-Raying You as You Drive If you have been feeling uneasy about having to be X-rayed by a Transportation Security Administration goon who can look under your clothes every time you fly, consider this: at least you can say no, and agree to be subjected to an old-fashioned full-body search. No opt-out for the latest in anti-terror technology though, with reports just out in Forbes Magazine and the Christian Science Monitor that the Homeland Security Department has purchased 500 mobil X-ray vans called ZBVs that can scan cars, trucks and homes without the drivers even knowing that they're being zapped. These vans, made by a Massachusetts company called American Science & Engineering, are fitted out with what are called Z Backscatter X-ray devices, which aim a focussed X-ray beam that reportedly has the capability of penetrating 14 inches of steel. http://www.infowars....u-as-you-drive/
  19. Do you still think Fluoride is good for you ? I challenge anybody to eat their Fluoridated toothpaste and report back to me on how they feel.… These articles and Quotes that I have posted will likely be wasted on many "lemmings"(see below). The World would still be flat if it was up to Designer Paule and his Statis budies. Open Discussion and Free Speech would be out the door as well. "hokey pokey nonsense", Na, were just ahead of the curve !! We like to think outside of the box ! "The last time I checked, Americans were still free to wear whatever religious garment they want" You call that freedom ? Are you free when you have to ask the Government for Authorization to travel ? You are not allowed to visit Cuba you know ? Are your free as a doctor to practice Alternative Cancer Therapy ? Are you free to drink Raw Unpasteurised Milk ? Are you free to Smoke DMT ? Will you be free to keep buying and consuming Vitamins and Herbs ? Not for long, big Pharma is lobbying to take that freedom away from you as we speak. Are you free when the Government can label you as Terrorist and lock you up indefinitely with out no Habeas Corpus ? Are you free from Taxation (Theft) ? Are you free when the Banks and Corporations lobby the Government to steal money out of the Treasury (Bailouts, War Profiteering, Subsides, Printing of Money, etc…) ? Will you be free when Hyper Inflation hits ? Do you think the Government is Honest ? Three Trillion Dollars missing out of the DOD, Circa 2001. How do you loose Three Trillion ? Where was the TV talking heads then ? Maybe their part of the Conspiracy. What happens when you lie to the Government ? You go to Jail. What happens when the Government lies to "We The People" ? We go to War. How did we end up with the short end of the stick. ? "Power Corrupts; and absolute Power Corrupts absolutely". Gentlemen, the Government does not Police it's self. It's your Job to keep them in check. "There are of course those who have fallen under the hypnotic spell of the TV talking-heads and "experts" whom they worship as authority figures. Unaccustomed to thinking for themselves, no amount of truth can sway them from their preconceived prejudices. They will even deny that which they see with their own eyes. They are victims of a psychological affliction known as "the lemming effect". Lemmings are small rodents who have been known to follow each other as they charge to their deaths into raging rivers or off of cliffs. Lemminghood is an innate psychological phenomenon, present in most mammals and observable in common people as well the most sophisticated and educated elites. Lemminghood is not an intellectual phenomenon - it is psychological. As such, no socio-economic class is immune to its strangulating effect. A grant-seeking university scientist can be a lemming just as much as a fashion obsessed teen-age girl. One blindly follows the latest trendy theory while the other blindly follows the latest trendy clothing style. What's the difference? Neither can resist the force of nature." "The power to fit in with one's social peers can be irresistible. To a human lemming, the logic behind an opinion doesn't count as much as the power and popularity behind an opinion. Man, like lemming, behaves collectively. And it could be no other way. Naturally, the individual must be equipped with this trait. Otherwise, the smallest steps toward civilization could never have been made. Lemminghood is a survival trait, an inborn instinct in the majority of people. However, as with all natural phenomena, this tendency can be manipulated and used for harmful purposes. It is this lemming effect which enables entire segments of a society to lose their sense of judgment all at the same time. This research paper will likely be wasted on many lemmings. For lemmings, denial is a basic psychological defense mechanism used to not only shield themselves from unpleasant realities, but also to reassure themselves that they will still fit within the acceptable range of opinion held by their peer group. Lemmings are absolutely terrified at the thought of being labeled as an "extremist" or a "conspiracy theorist". At all costs, their beliefs must always be on the "right" side of the issue and conform within the boundaries of their lemming peers. Lemmings simply cannot bear the burden of responsibility, or the discomfort, which comes with thinking independently. They'll resist any efforts to change their misguided beliefs with all their mental energy. We can try to open their closed minds and free them from their self-imposed blindness, but it's not easy fighting the force of human nature. The chains of ideological conformity have too strong of a grip, and breaking them is a difficult task. With the limited resources at our disposal, it is next to impossible to compete with the media lemming-masters. Nevertheless, some of us must make the meager attempt, and thus lay the foundation upon which the truth might one day rise again." "There are those among us who do have the courage and intellectual capacity to break free of the shackles of lemminghood and accept the truth when it is presented in a clear and logical sequence."
  20. Second Thoughts about Fluoride by Dan Fagin. Scientific American, January 2008, pages 74–81 (Full Article available online for $4.95.) KEY CONCEPTS • Researchers are intensifying their scrutiny of fluoride, which is added to most public water systems in the U.S. Some recent studies suggest that overconsumption of fluoride can raise the risks of disorders affecting teeth, bones, the brain and the thyroid gland. • A 2006 report by a committee of the National Research Council recommended that the federal government lower its current limit for fluoride in drinking water because of health risks to both children and adults Page 75: Most fluoridated water contains much less fluoride than the EPA limit, but the situation is worrisome because there is so much uncertainty over how much additional fluoride we ingest from food, beverages and dental products. What is more, the NRC panel noted that fluoride may also trigger more serious health problems, including bone cancer and damage to the brain and thyroid gland. Although these effects are still unproved, the panel argued that they deserve further study. <P align=left> Fluoridation status of some countries Despite dental pressure, 99% of western continental Europe has rejected, banned, or stopped fluoridation due to environmental, health, legal, or ethical concerns Only about 5% of the world population is fluoridated and more than 50% of these people live in North America. The Danish Minister of Environment recommended against fluoridation in 1977 because "no adequate studies had been carried out on its long-term effects on human organ systems other than teeth and because not enough studies had been done on the effects of fluoride discharges on freshwater ecosystems." "In 1978, the West German Association of Gas & Water Experts rejected fluoridation for legal reasons and because 'the so-called optimal fluoride concentration of 1 mg per L is close to the dose at which long-term damage [to the human body] is to be expected.' " Quotes from: Hilleman B, "FLUORIDATION: Contention won't go away," Chemical and Engineering News, 1988 Aug, 66:31 (The [ ] brackets were in the original article) CountryFluoridation Status China BANNED: "not allowed" Austria REJECTED: "toxic fluorides" NOT added Belgium REJECTED: encourages self-determination – those who want fluoride should get it themselves. Finland STOPPED: "...do not favor or recommend fluoridation of drinking water. There are better ways of providing the fluoride our teeth need." A recent study found ..."no indication of an increasing trend of caries...." Germany STOPPED: A recent study found no evidence of an increasing trend of caries Denmark REJECTED: "...toxic fluorides have never been added to the public water supplies in Denmark." Norway REJECTED: "...drinking water should not be fluoridated" Sweden BANNED: "not allowed". No safety data available! The Netherlands Inevitably, whenever there is a court decision against fluoridation, the dental lobby pushes to have the judgement overturned on a technicality or they try to get the laws changed to legalize it. Their tactics didn't work in the vast majority of Europe. Hungary STOPPED: for technical reasons in the '60s. However, despite technological advances, Hungary remains unfluoridated. Japan REJECTED: "...may cause health problems...." The 0.8 -1.5 mg regulated level is for calcium-fluoride, not the hazardous waste by-product which is added with artificial fluoridation.
