Worldflight Australian team documentary
« on: Sun, 10 Nov 2019 10:16 »
great documentary on their full motion 747 sim!

part 1: https://youtu.be/XEotOL1B3Lw
part 2: https://youtu.be/21nb8FCZsBw

I wonder if they use a collomated display? I'm also very curious how they run HDMI from their PCs into the MIP as it looks like quite far?

Any idea what is the software for scenery generation???
Everytime I see a 747, it makes me think how can this thing even move....Few minutes later, I see it flying...

If I remember correctly, it was addressed in the video: Lockheed Martin's Prepar3D.

p.s.
But as an addition to the question ... is Matt's sim using current add-on scenery for P3D (like Gary is doing?) I do recognize the O'Hare scenery by FSDT or Drzewiecke Design, but is it that good elsewhere?

Hi - to defend myself and my landing, it was hot, it was late, I'd had a glass of red or two... and... well... that'll do.  :P Answers...

The display is NatVis projectors onto a surround screen from the inside... not collomated.

Yes it's Prepar3d v4.5 linked using Gary's ExternalSim

Yes there is a lot of addon scenery in the Sim :)

There are no PCs in the cockpit, all are in the rack outside the ship and run in - not sure if HDMI, I think they're VGA...

Cheers

John.

Great videos, and very well-explained. Who wouldn’t want to build their own sim after this? :-)

my view is I thought you all did a bang up job :-)    and I thought the cause was good too

Just wondering what the interviewer meant when he asked "Does the aircraft have autotrim?" Was this a Microsoft FlightSimulator type question?

Yes, the 744 has autotrim (with A/P engaged). It also has Speed Trim when the autopilot is not engaged (or mach trim if it's a Freighter).

I guess he meant a 737 style "trim wheel" that can rotate automatically.

Another question: Did Matt appear in the videos, or did I miss some parts? :-)

No, I don't believe that Matt made an appearance.
