Trip Tics ... a little help?
« on: January 29, 2011, 02:51:27 PM »
Hi all ...

For those of you flying the Trip Tics ... could you look over our shoulder and make sure we got all of the turns correct, didn't say starboard when we meant port, etc.?  If you fly one ... post it here that it was OK or may need a little more definition. 

I'd really appreciate some test pilots working on this too.  If you have FSDiscover and would like to make a trip tic (adding history, geography, etc), drop me a line or mention it here and we'll "give" that one to you.  We typically fly these at 1200 feet (or less).  The most difficult part of making them is having maps for pointing out the landmarks and waypoints. Go to the map room, there are some excellent maps there at the bottom ESPECIALLY that Sky Vector link.  The other trick to making a good one, is when you see something to discuss, and have a bit of flying time (on a long leg) ... google that feature and grab some information on it. It makes the trips more enjoyable. 

There are a lot still to do. I'm working on them too, so let me know before you want to try one so we don't make a duplicate.  Then, when you are done, if you get the text to me, I can drop it into the format easily. (I'll also put your name on it!). Be sure to let me know BEFORE you would do one ... there may be several people working on this, and I don't want to waste your time by having 2 people doing the same one.  We'd really appreciate the help.

I'm not shure if this is the place to ask this, but where in FSX are the ".PLN" files located?
