  1. There is a sticky thread where all the custom schedules are listed if the authors consented if that is what you mean.
  2. Would certainly be interesting to add in some random emergencies that are automatically handled such as some wind go around's or engine outs that may require us to clear a path for landing or have someone taxi back to the gate.
  3. Run the game yeah sure, play it not so much. Low traffic on an optimized airport maybe for a bit but I doubt it would be a good experience. Cheap off the shelf? A more modern i3 or Ryzen 3 with 4 cores would be a bare minimum. 8gb of ram and any storage device. You'll want a GPU vs onboard and could likely get away with a lower end one but that will add cost. If you build one yourself you can find some decent stuff on the used market that will get you by for less most likely.
  4. Fun schedule, jumped straight to 18:00 and enjoyed it, good work!
  5. I'm sure the basic plans can be sourced or renders of the changes looked up so they can get things mostly accurate. If the project is large enough to changing the airport and information is publicly available it can be done. If they know these things are happening is an entirely different story.
  6. While wholly true what I will say is some of the definition updates and changes to how the real time scanners handle certain applications or comm's it can still break things. I don't disable AV entirely but there are times when I have to stop the real time scanners or add an application as an exception that never had issues previously because of an update or change to what they are looking for which that app is now in violation of for whatever reason.
  7. The headsets that have a passive overlay of the room around you may work, if you can subtly put that if you look down by recognizing the keyboard or something. Not sure if that feed can be tapped into like an augmented reality thing.
  8. Really depends on how it's done. Supreme Commander (first one) is the best game I have ever played for multiple monitor setups overall in the way they designed it to be a truly secondary monitor for a dedicated map or unit / production information. If someone has multiple monitors configured as individual displays then something like that is helpful telling the game to enable it and we can put what we want on each screen. In Eyefinity or Surround the monitor's are all registered as one display to the OS so it wouldn't operate any differently other than the engine needs to underst
  9. I too am curious, if the game just registers the inputs and rendering based upon the head view I think it could be fun to move things around and push on the screens and look for the planes. BUT this will be a very different experience and audio integration will need to be spot on for the text to speech. I preordered one finally a few months back and am looking forward to it. But I can see how doing something like this in VR will be VERY difficult vs reality hah. But mixing it with my keyboard and the headset to look around in would be a great change to it. Yeah, I used adapters a
  10. I did it in some of my more fun schedules playing like I had a weather situation diverting planes to the airport I was at. I had them arrive early enough to ensure they landed and then it was up to me to get them to the gate before that same flight popped up for a departure towards the end of the session. Giving myself 30 minutes between their arrival into the pattern and the supposed push worked decently but any go around or delays and I'd have issues with two flight numbers active having to delete one.
  11. I hope for resolution scaling. I've had a triple monitor setup since... 2006 or so. Right now I'm stuck playing windowed on a single monitor for full non issue play lol. Spanning my three screens by the game just rendering the added pixels in the DOF would be great. Not holding my breath though.
  12. As much as I want ORD I am glad its going to the new one. The better that version is the happier I will be and more likely to open the wallet for a more functional and rich experience :) Depending on how the next ones are I may pick some up.
  13. I looked into this back when I bought the game and if I recall its Windows 7. When you get to windows 10 the default speech has multiple voices to pick from and can do so randomly. Its been almost two years since I looked into it so I may be recalling incorrectly but that was what I recall being the situation.
  14. Yeah the different voltage rails go to different components in the computer. That is not a lot of power to play with. Being a pre-built HP system they may have put a weaker 6750 or a customized version in that uses less power. File folders and browsers wont typically spike a power issue unless they are pulling cycles off the CPU for refreshing or something graphical. Once they load into the memory the HDD wont be needed until you change folders or do something with the file and that usage is pretty minimal power wise. Just sustaining all the components. So the versions of the 55
