Rickie Traeger: Misc Flight Simulator blog




Hi everyone!
Hope everyone is doing well! 

 

I was able to get the new Flight Simulator game to finally run!   Holy cow talk about a resource hog 🙁    But I will say the graphics are nice and there are a lot of neat features. I love the live features. Live traffic, live weather, etc…

I am actually just starting a flight as we speak, of a live flight.  It is from KRFD to Oakland, CA.  The game grabs actual real life flight data, and you can fly the same flight!  I normally like to fly the Cessna 172. But obviously, the Cessna 172 is not going to make that trip. So, I am going to try flying the Boeing 787.  This will be fun.

There are a few things that I want to complain about though.  Some of my visual reference points to fly into KRFD, have been taken out of the game 🙁    And also when you crash, it does not show the crash anymore.  And the whole resource hog issue and crashes alot.  But overall I like it. I think if it didnt take up so much resources and the game didn’t crash so much.

Here is a screenshot I found online. So you can see just how amazing the graphics are!


So here I was thinking summer was slipping away from us. But the next few days are going to be mid 90’s 🙂   Heck yeah I am excited!   What we really need though is a good thunderstorm.  We had a little bit of rain last night. But nothing like how much we need. I think we are in a drought. If not, we are not far from it.  Plus a good thunderstorm would be nice 🙂

 

 








Rickie Traeger: July 15th




 

So I been sitting here thinking about a few random things. So instead of thinking about them inside my head, why not post them on my website and hear everyone elses thoughts and opinions on them

*  Years ago, I was going down the road and watched a small airplane go into a tiny cloud, and never came back out.  Yes, it sounds weird but thats exactly what happened. I dunno if I have ever said this experience publicly or not, I will probably write something up on it at a later date if I havent.  But back on topic… This still baffles me to this day.

* I have gained some weight, so I need to find a decent diet. Hopefully one that still lets me drink my sweet tea lol.

*  They are coming out with a new flight simulator. But not only is it for PC, it will be on the Xbox as well. So I am wondering if it is going to be realistic, or going to be “arcade” type of flying? If it was straight PC< I wouldn’t second guess it. But its coming out on a console and I dunno how realistic that is going to be on a console.

  • Speaking of Flight simulator. I am popping off to go do a few flights

 








Covid-19 Virus On Plague Inc.




Good evening everyone. 

Hope everyone is staying in and staying safe.

I played a game called Plague inc. the purpose of the game is to create a virus and destroy the world.
It has been out awhile. So as you know we all been stuck inside and I have been gaming alot more recently.

Well I played the game and created the Covid-19 virus.  I started it off in China and added all the symptoms and how it spreads.  And I am sure glad this was just a video game, because look at the results…

Again it was just a video game, so do NOT believe what a video game says!  

I thought that was pretty crazy, the Covid-19 virus on Plague inc. destroyed humanity…

Before people flip out because of a video game. This game has been out a long, long time now. Way beofre the Covid-19 and the developers have spent alot of money to fight the Covid-19 in real life.








Rickie Traeger: Payday 2, Happy Weekend!




Good morning everyone! 

I was trying hard to make the Friday blog, but I barely missed it lol.

By the time I was able to sit down to write a quick blog, it had past midnight. Grrr, LOL.

So I will do a combination of a Friday and Saturday blog, LOL.

I have been doing some RS stuff behind the scenes. So I didn’t get a chance to blog.  And to be fair I can’t blame it all on that.  I bought Payday 2 Crimewave edition for only $3!   So, I been playing that awhile as well.  I used to play Payday back in the day.  So when I saw 2 and for only $3, heck yeah I am going to buy it 🙂   Speaking of, after I get done writing this, I am going to go play it some more, lol. Pretty good game with a lot of customization’s to it.  I should post a link of some youtube videos to this game.

I hope everyone will have a safe and good weekend.  I am going to pop off and play some video games.

I found this one on a brief search real quick.  I have not had the chance to watch it yet.

 








Rickie Traeger: Cyber Monday, 2 Video Games, 108 Days Left….




Good morning everyone!  Hopefully everyone had a safe and wonderful weekend!

Today is “Cyber Monday” I bet there is no deals, just like on Black Friday…

I been watching the weather recently and I am probably going to jinx it for typing this but oh well, lol.   I am glad we did not hit by that winter storm.  It dropped a lot of snow in many places. I hope I didn’t jinx it and now we will get a storm soon, lol

So I am sitting here while I type this and thinking it is hard to believe that it is December now. That could go both ways, lol.  Sucks cuz it is now December. But cool that spring is just that much closer. 108 days away!  So that is 108 times you probably will hear me complain about how I hate winter, lol.

I was browsing online and saw they have 2 games I want. But I dont have the xbox, so  I wont be able to play em.  #1 State of Decay 2.  I am super happy they came out with a version 2 of that game. I loved the first one!   #2 Sea of Thieves.  It is a pirate game 🙂   But I am reading mixed reviews on it, so I dunno if I want to get it now or now, lol.
