More info on the free Skycatcher here: http://www.flight1.com/view.asp?page=skycatcher And of course for your copy of the Heron's Nest [...]

Hot New Tech for Decrepit Old Stuff

The hottest buzzword in 3D rendering and gaming at the moment is PBR, short for physically-based rendering.

KACK Preview Pics – Now in P3D3!

Every once in a while, I still get that wow factor from flight simming. You know the feeling; where just for a moment, you forget all about software, tweaks, and settings and are just... there. Lately, I've had a whole bunch of those moments. Granted, using an Oculus Rift VR headset has provided a whole [...]
