My Flight Sim CV
A little walk down memory lane. I am not really sure about the completeness (did I forget something?) and the chronological order of this list... but here's a start. I will eventually post some screenshots of the programs as well, once I get around to actually find the programs on my other mothballed harddisks or some SyQuest. Please correct me should you find mistakes, it eventually got confusing <g>
Year Type Sim Program 1993 Freeware FS4 SC1Map - Graphic display/print of Microsoft FS4 ASD Scenery files (SC1) as well as a Moving Map. Started as a very personal tool, eventually uploaded to a BBS, was intended to become Shareware but eventually stayed Freeware - SC1MAP was once modified in such a way that three full flight Simulators were connected with it (two 737 and one DC10). Stopped at V0.996999
Want to laugh? Here is a screenshot
1993 Freeware FS4 Sim3D - 3D-Viewer for FS4 Aircraft... one of my favourites. Was just a little experiment to display Aircraft as wireframes.
1994 Shareware ATP ASD2ATP - This program was a derivate of various FS4 efforts... eventually ended up as a part of Simon Hradecky's ATPUTIL, "eventually" being some 2 years later
1994 Interstateware FS5 Nocando.Bgl - Little scenery with a tricky little airport made for the Interstate 4 or 5... which is (was?) the European Flight Simulator Championship. Pilots were so good they mastered it pretty well.
1994 Freeware FS5 Kenya Scenery - This was probably the very first real freeware scenery for FS5. It was drawn with AutoCAD and compiled into BGL files with a little compiler I wrote. I think I have the DXF somewhere, if I find it, I will post it here...
1995 N.A. Ware FS5 DXF2BGL Compiler - Little private compiler based on the Kenya Scenery that was constantly changed so Hans van Wyhe could make scenery files... and he made many!
1995 Freeware FS5 AreaKill - Deleted elements from BGL files using some sort of batch process... seems to be still in use occasionally, quite to my surprise.
You can download Areakill V1.09 (54 K)
1995 Freeware FS5 DownBoy! - Reduced the size of the limits of BGL files, sometimes they were absolutely disproporstionally huge, so they had to be "deflated".
1995 Shareware FS5 FS5FMS - A "Flight Management System" which featured the very first autopilot for FS5. It was linked to FS5 via network or serial cable. Here is an old FMS Page that's still online...
1996 Payware FS5/FS98 Schiratti Commander - Scenery Viewer, Designer, Router, Moving Map & other stuff all in one. It was a really fun group effort with other programmers and designers.
FS98 IPX Module by Simon Hradecky 13 KB
1996 Interstateware FS5/ATP Various little programs for the control and display of aircraft during Interstate 7... amongst which were SCInterstate (ATC and spectator display program), I7WX (changed the weather via the network), Satan (allowed pilots to experience all sorts of trouble, from engine failures to backside flips)
1996 Freeware FS5/ATP SCOnline - Derivate of SC, allowed pilots to fly via Compuserve Forums and controllers to control them.
1996 Freeware FS5 VISor - Editor for FS5 VIS files, made it pretty simple to change the entries such as scenery path, priority, layer etc.
1996 Freeware FS5 Airtool - Allowed to extract Aircraft data into a separate file and copy it into other aircraft of the same type. Things were a bit more difficult then.
1998 Payware AS/2 SCAS (also known as "Ernie") for AS/2 - SC derivate which graphically displays ATP / AS/2 scenery, probably my very last DOS program - part of AS/2 (check the AS/2 Site)
1998 SimWare FS98 Ancilliary software for Stamatis' Sim: MCP driver software, autopilot modifications, PFD and Engine display (see PFD Page and Cockpit Page)
1998 ShareWare FS98 QuickMap - A really down-to-earth Moving Map... (see QuickMap Page)
