Weekly Highlights 23, 24 #

A few highlights from the past two weeks of streaming:

Elite: Dangerous Odyssey Alpha: Hanging out at the bar, running with a lazer rifle, going on a foot mission with a friend for the first time, admiring the animation of the launcher that lobs rockets toward hapless NPCs. Observing other artificially intelligent footpath walkers like Administrator Gianni, an unlucky volted scientist, and Point of Interest guards who said hello with bullets, lazer, plasma and rocket fire. Cutting into a crashed ship’s storage compartment and putting my spacelegs on an SRV. Asking Admiral Schippah to solve a problem with brute force, and later observing the effect of the same on his ship after a low pass sonico boom. Welcoming new stream visitor RazWasabi, visiting sickbay, shutting down a dilithium crystal chamber, slipping and almost falling IRL, and finally completing a mission in the Elite: Odyssey Alpha.

Microsoft Flight Simulator: Seeing Flintstones landing gear during Forder’s flight in Costa Rica, finding treasure in the Sahara desert in Neofly career mode. Losing a fuel gamble, performing a night touch and go, a diversion for fuel and night landing with help. Watching the moon rise and getting raided by SeedyL at the end of my Cuckoo 172 20 hour flight from Perth to Sydney.

Grand Theft Auto Online: Narrowly missing V with a flying car and getting to a chopper.

Valheim: Asking skeleton pests from another world to go away.

Soon I will need to go on the road again, and the schedule may be disrupted. I am working on possible remote streaming solutions.

Your visit is always appreciated.

Weekly Highlights 21, 22 #

A few highlights from the past two weeks of streaming:

Grand Theft Auto Online: Impromptu racing with Elias, laughing at underwater suits, going on a spring joint parachute jump, missing a parachute landing on a fountain, getting caught during a heist, seeing a spinning trash bin and a pulante Beetle, one two boss, a “paçoca of languages”, motorcycle showoff fail, BF Weevil laugh attack, and zapping cars.

Valheim: Keeping it environmental, talking about french fries and icons and text, rainy outpost trouble, being saved by skipper Schippah, planting a tree, facing an angry blue thing, an angry stone thing, a skeleton, and a swarm of gremlins, receiving news of a dedicated Euro server, running from enemies, and taming boars.

IL-2 Sturmovik: Performing a hammerhead maneuver during a strafing run in a Tuskegee Airmen P-51 Mustang, making an emergency landing and barely missing trees in a P-47.

Arma 3: Celebrating Grantalf’s 2000th Arma hour in .

Microsoft Flight Simulator: Flying a Spitfire in formation with icebird4all, a 27 knot crosswind landing attempt, being told I am upside down, and firing up a Merlin engine.

Back to a regular stream schedule this week and going on a cuckoo 16–24 hour charity flight on Saturday!

Thank you for coming by, dear visitor.

Cuckoo 172

On Saturday, at 8:00am Australia Western Standard Time (0000Z), I will be flying a Cessna 172 from Perth (YPPH) to Sydney (YSSY) on what will be a 16–24 hour stream in the 2021 Microsoft Flight Simulator Charity Endurance Race Series Event 1: Indian Pacific Wing Race to benefit Australia’s excellent Royal Flying Doctor Service, organized by the excellent SeedyL and FactualGull team!

There is still time to sign up to take part, but the deadline is coming up in a few hours at 2359 ZULU time today, 2021 March 28th, so hurry up if you want to get up and go.

Throughout this week I will be updating this post with more information, including my in-development flight plan, and linking to preparation streams where I haphazardly stumble through manuals, software, and flying aeronav geekery to prepare. Sorry! Here is a video tutorial about making a flight plan for MSFS2020 with Little Navmap (thank you, Howard)!

After a crash-landing in the outback due to a lost fuel gamble, a hard PC freeze over the Great Australian Bight, night touch and go landings, and help from kind fellow flyers after in-flight diversions for fuel, I made it!

Thanks for coming along, and follow my stream for peeks into fantastic future flying metal bird aerodynamic movimentos!

Beautiful film.

Starlink Satellite Internet Service Accepting Orders #

Good news for people in rural areas. Speeds of 100 Mbps down and 40 Mbps up are expected, and most of the planet is supposed to be covered by the end of 2021.

More information in this Reddit FAQ, including a link to this coverage map where you can click on a cell to open a window and then click on the little camera icon on the top-left to open a detailed map of the cell.

A few highlights from the past week of streaming:

As previously mentioned, my day job is taking most of my time this month so random, irregular streaming are the set menu at the moment.

Thank you for visiting!
