Default Introduction

So I'd like to take a second to introduce myself, being the newest member of the Polychop Simulations. Some of you already chatted with me during the live stream for the Gazelle over the weekend as I was frantically trying to post all the questions and answers on the chat.

So little background. I've been flying simulations for over 30 years at this point. Started when I was in second grade flying on an IBM using microsoft flight simulator. I've flown most simulations in between but my favorites are X-plane for civilian aircraft and learning realism, and DCS of course for military aircraft. I've been flying DCS since 2011, but had Lock On prior to that.

I'm currently on my third home cockpit build and it's farily done. It's a modular design that has five different panels and controls for both jets and helicopters. I enjoy working on my pit and find that it makes flying so much more fun. I've recently started converting one of my panels for the SA-342 so will share that when it's finished.

I've worked on some DCS projects over the years and have enjoyed tinkering when I can. I've flown with some virtual squads over the years and currently fly with the 355th. While I own all the current DCS modules, I am most familar with the A-10c. I enjoy building missions and have created several training maps to use over the years.

So I was brought on board to Polychop to help with the coding. I've been coding one thing or another for over 30 years as well. I'm fluent in more computer languages then I care to admit...some that don't even exist anymore. I'm looking forward to helping out in current and future Polychop projects and know it'll be lots of fun.

I'm also currently the person with the longest flight time in the Gazelle with an Oculus Rift. I have the DK2 version and my CV1 should be coming at the end of this month. I think the rift is a big game changer and can't wait to see how it get incorperated into more flight simulations (or other simulators) as well.

I"m a software engineer by trade. Also a proffesional improv actor on the side. I also do community theater plays as well. I'm married with two lovely daugthers.

So to summarize....hello!

Hello there!

Welcome to the "is it done yet" community

Looking forward to what you guy's have in store for us all.

I'm really looking forward to trying out a rift for the first time, like yourself I believe it is a real game changer. From an experienced "rifter's" point of view, may I ask if you think my system would handle the CV1? I did try the system checker on the Rift web site and it states my CPU ain't good enough Sorry to go off topic!

Meanwhile.....welcome again

Welcome mate, Thankyou for all your work upto this point. Any chance of a CV1 review when you get it.

Sorry Bart, did you say it was done.

Cowboy,

I will have a gazelle flight video with the CV1 the day it arrives. I'm trying to prep my wife and kids that I'll be in the basement for several days when it arrives.

I do have videos of the various DSC modules with the rift on my channel at:
https://www.youtube.com/user/TheOtherWhiteMeat22

I will keep all Gazelle videos on the Polychop channel until it goes public.

Well you don't really hear about Pascal anymore...although I always loved it as a language.

Cobol and Fortran are not truelly extinct, but nobody sent them a birthday card in the last couple of years either.
