Back with a [supersonic, bone-crunching] bang...

Ah, Orbiter. It's so nice to see you again...

I tend to rotate what games I play, depending on mood. It's not really organised; I just find myself playing loads of something and then stopping. Last month, Simutrans, the month prior to that, GeneRally and Toca2 Touring Cars (yeah, I'm a 90's/early 00's kid...). And when life's hectic, that's all I can really set my mind down to.

But when stress sets in, something special is required. The nails have been bitten, the comfort...

So long, college, and thank you for all the... Fish?

Well. Here I am. Walking out of college for the last time.

Feels weird. Feels... Well, I'm going to be honest here, if I wasn't so mentally smashed*, I'd probably write some poetic piece about life, education and the great progress of life. Heck, I might even include some Shakespeare.

As it is, I'm just going to play Orbiter, eat chocolate and... eat pasta.

Pasta la vista baby!

Ahem. Bring on summer people!

OK people, Project Marathon coming atcha!

Florida Keys Marathon Airport is a small airport, built in 1940 as a Navy airfield. It soon started commercial passenger flights, but only as a "flag stop", ie. a person would wave a big flag at passing planes from West Keys if there were passengers waiting to head to Miami.

As a small base, it's going to be a good starting point for a beginner like me, with lots of small and simple buildings, and a good opportunity...

A (very) small start...

OK, so after a year of playing Orbiter, I want to start proper development!

I don't mean putting other people's hard work into UCGO boxes but actual models, ships....... STUFF!

And so, after a crash course in Anim8or (i.e. "Oooooo! What does THAT nice button do?!") here's my first mesh!

OK, so it's...
