Well hello there, and welcome to my page...in my kloud (that's the word for "cloud" in my own language). I don't usually talk about myself cuz I'm not the social kind of individual at all, quite the contrary, I'm dark, cold, nocturnal, distant, mysterious, complicated; but anyways, I'll make an exception this time.

Suffice to say, my passions/fields of interest/things I like consist of:
- astronomy, which is the most important of them all, together with all its ramifications;
- aviation (quite obviously);
- classic European art and architecture, classical music, the positive aspects of life and certain values of past eras, which I find especially comforting in our days of moral and artistic decay;
- paleontology (in my way of seeing things, this is actually a ramification of astronomy, believe it or not, as extinct species of earthly animals are nothing but forms of life on some planet in some solar system in some galaxy in some galactic cluster, somewhere in the universe);
- I'm not a fan of competition sports like football, soccer, tennis etc. But I do enjoy what I call real sport, such as bodybuilding (lite version), hiking, skydiving or simply running.
- Due to my "wild" nature (always being on the move and such), pets are not exactly suitable for me, I'm not good at taking care of other beings at all, but I do like animals and I like to spend time with the pets of others, or animals living in sanctuaries, when I get time. I'm not a dog guy, although there are a few races I like, I am however, firmly a feline addict, I love them all, big small, medium, whatever. I like to play with big cats (yep, tigers, cheetah, lynxes, bobcats and others alike...not so much with lions or cougars though) when I get the chance. My favorite species are the domestic cat (in its multitude of races and breeds) and Caracals.

When it comes to aviation, I tend to enjoy everything that flies, but I do have a soft spot for airliners, more so than for any other flying machines, as well as for the good ol' days of aviation/oldies, which might be a bit nonconformist perhaps...I mean...how many young individuals like me are passionate about old flying iron?

I'm not really that good at adapting to others' way of doing things, I try be as independent as I can and do things my own way, which is probably part of what prompted me to build this little flight sim community, according to my way of doing things in which I cordially invite you to join and...do what flight simmers do online

All the best,
Your FS rig (PC only, full cockpit sim etc)
I like to keep it compact, so no wires no yokes, no nada, just the PC/laptop and a joystick
What Flight Simulator/s do you use?
A short history of your FS experience (when did you start simming, your first sim etc)
Can't remember...it was sometime in the 2000s, started with FS98, used it for a short while, realized it was way too obsolete (used to ask myself "is this how it's supposed to be :))) then I moved on to FS2004, started to get serious with FS and have been using FS2004 ever since.
How realistic do you sim-fly?
I usually try to stay realistic, but if I can't get a certain thing to function, I may or may not bother too much to learn how it works
What addons do you use?
REX + Overdrive, F1View, DBS Walk And Follow, Active Camera, Mouse As Yoke, HD Moon, FSWater, World Of AI, Editvoicepack, PicNic, plus a few other addons/modifications that are not publicly available, but are personal modifications done by me, combining several bits and pieces from various addons.
Your favorite real-world (not FS addon) aircraft:
TriStar, Concorde, DC-8, 757, A340, MD-11
Your favorite real-world (not FS addon) airports:
Kansai, Madeira, London City Airport, Lukla, Kai Tak, Sydney Kingsford Smith, Seattle Tacoma, Santos Dumont, Innsbruck
Your favorite airlines (place the top ones at the beginning)
Lufthansa, Wizz Air, Braniff, Tower Air
Your favorite liveries of all times (place the top ones at the beginning)
United Airlines' grey tulip paint, SBA Airlines' red coating, Braniff's all colorful liveries, Avior Airlines (all of them), Wizzair and Ecuatoriana as it was once worn by 707s...CaptainSim 707 PAX version features such a livery if it helps.
What predominates in your FS hangar?
Freeware and payware, approx. 50-50
What predominates in your addon scenery collection?
Freeware and payware, approx. 50-50
Your favorite addon sceneries:
TNCM by FlyTampa, Lukla by Aerosoft, Phuket by Thaiflight, Madeira by Aerosoft, Innsbruck by Aerosoft, Heathrow by UK2000
Your favorite addon aircraft:
Everything from David Maltby, QW 757, Eurowings BAe 146, CLS 747, PMDG MD-11, HJG 727, TinMouse 737
Are you a member of a virtual airline?
What fascinates you the most?
Old jetliners
Do you usually fly multiplayer?
How about screenshots?
I very much enjoy taking pics and I do so at almost every flight, but that doesn't mean I'm not striving to be as realistic as possible
Are you into FS videos?
I rarely make any,
Addon addiction:
I sometimes get some new goodies for my sim
Your favorite aviation quotation
You've never been lost until you've been lost at Mach 3

      Thank you very much indeed, my friends! Considering the fact that this forum hasn't climbed to "flight level full-blown-FS-community" by now, I normally should've ditched it, and maybe recommend other fine FS forums to its members. But like I often said in the past, you can never know what's ahead, who knows when a bunch of simmers will find this place cozy and stable enough to call it their new home, (it almost happened before), so I'll leave it airborne. Besides, what do I have to lose? Regarding simming itself - I too have eased up on simming quite a lot. Mind you, I haven't quit simming, it's just that I rarely get to feel the virtual breeze rushing above and below my equally virtual wings, due to several reasons, such as real life tasks which take time and effort, and simply a need for more relaxation and enjoyment of other things I like, away from the hassle and intense concentration associated with tweaking or even using FS (the way I use it at least). All this also results in my reduced presence on FS forums. It's funny, because I've just come across another fellow simmer's farewell "speech" over at HJG (here), and while I do not give up simming, I can actually relate to many of the reasons he blames for his divorce from FS in his video. Also, as he says, it's mostly simmers of a respectable age who tend to need either a break or a retirement from FS, or just to ease off. Here too, I am an exotic bastard. But yes, my passion for flight simulation (as a branch of my passion for aviation) is as strong as always, and I'm just as fascinated and delighted as ever before when I trick my senses into thinking I'm manning all those wonderful flying machines, in those breathtaking virtual skies, above that pretty virtual landscape. Every time I fire up the sim after some time off, I relive that joy I first experienced in my first days of simming, I remember being so mesmerized that there actually is such a piece of software that's not a simple, boring game, but an actual home flight simulator that's so easy to use, and supported by so many varied addons. Concurrently, I want to thank all of you who keep popping in every now and then and drop a few screenies, a nice thought or whatever else you feel like dropping. @Hippygator Believe it or not, I've been thinking of you too and hoping you're doing fine, despite not corresponding as of late. I've been through quite a few hassle with my job, or jobs rather, trying to find the right place. I've had a lot on my head, but I haven't forgot you, dear vice-grandpa! That's not say I couldn't or shouldn't have corresponded more, I just don't want to bother you too much.

      As a matter of fact, I'm in the process of comparing, looking for, and acquiring exterior Christmas lights and power cables for what is to hopefully become the most extensive and spectacular exterior Christmas lights show I've ever put up. And also the grandest in my area. I am still planning and designing the whole thing. It has become a bit of a competition among a few of us neighbors over here, but so far, no one is quite as crazy as myself. May you and your loved ones also enjoy a wonderful Christmas time, and a joyful 2018!
