Thank you for your reply ScalyQuasar - interesting name! “here” takes me to a website flightsim.to - I would like to join but I don’t see a way to do so - only login, that I assume, is how to get in once one signs up. I don’t see a way to signup - please advise me on that. Am I right in assuming that what I find there are Addons to MSFS 2020?
I would like to see both Castle Blarney and the Blarney Stone - both in slightly different, but close locations. There are many castles, abbeys, and such in various states of repair which are included on travel websites.
Just a bit of background on me,
I am in my 80s, a USMC veteran, who started flight simulation some 15 months ago on advice of my doctor as a way to improve memory, reaction time, and other brain activities. I worked in the IT industry from the early computers (1959) through desktops until 2000, including PC DOS, Windows, and OS2. To get started with XP 11 I needed a robust computer - X9 8 cores, 5.00 auto turbo, SSD, 3 32" Predator 4K screens, 2080ti graphics card, and 200mb Internet. I was running XP 11 using all three screens at 2K, flew a number of aircraft starting with the Cessna, and a few war birds. My favorite is the Cirrus G2 ( would like to see that one in MSFS). After exploring different modes of flight I chose low and slow sightseeing- world wide - planning trips with Little Nav Map. My home airport is Linden, NJ and is surrounded with oil tanks from the Linden Refinery. On first take off I noticed that the tanks were not present - only bare ground. I used Ortho4xp and the was white circles where the tanks are supposed to be. Than MSFS came along - got hooked with the trailer, installed it, took off, and voila that tanks appeared - well rendered. I was especially impressed with the idea that I did not have to fill up my entire computer with scenery tiles. Been hooked ever since flying the Cessna 1000 version. I am eager to help grow MSFS anyway I can. Part of my career was managing a operating system testing department where I was involved in Alpha, Beta, Regression, and User Interface Testing so in that way I have some experience in program development.
