I really want to do some simulation stuff, but damn…it’s expensive.
Let’s start with X-Plane 11. I wanted to do a flight from Stockholm to Copenhagen. It crashed before I even got off the ground, not once but twice. I still can’t figure out why the sim is crashing, but it only seems to do it on one particular aircraft. Another issue I had with the flight was the STAR approach was not playing well without ATC guidance. Basically I’d have to vector myself to the airport which is unrealistic.
P3D solves that problem, I haven’t had a crash on that program in months and I have an excellent ATC program that gives me the correct vectoring I need to begin my approach. The downside is that it’s hella expensive. The default airport for Copenhagen looks like ass, and if I want to purchase a professional version of the airport it’s going to cost me $30.
So in the meantime I’m not playing either sim. I just don’t have patience for it at the moment.
In the meantime I’m filling my time with other activities. I picked up Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which is sucking up most of my time. I’m also playing through Forza Horizons 4 which is the best racing game this year IMO.
I’m watching a lot of One Piece and finished the Skypiea arc. I’m bouncing back and forth between the anime and manga. While I enjoy the art, music, and voiceovers from the anime, sometimes the pacing is a bit off, so I’ll switch to the manga which has much faster pacing…but just reading it I feel a bit bored when I can just lay back and watch an anime for 20 minutes.
I’ve also lost my 3DS. I’ve looked all over the house and I can’t seem to find it. Fortunately Monster Hunter Stories and Phoenix Wright is on iOS so I’m just playing those games on my phone instead.
So that’s that for the weekend. Not sure what else to do except just relax and try to get some stuff done around the house.
