Toasty roasty

Sunday, May 16th, 2010

My (now older) machine is running a bit hot.  How hot?  Well when running FSX core#0 gets as high as 94C.  Yikes.  And that’s just a Q6600 quad core at 2.4GHz.  No overclocking.  So I’ve minimized using the machine the last few days, and will take it into the shop for a cleaning and cooling system upgrade, and a pinch of overclocking (it always did run too warm, 80C or so when stressed).

Holger and I decided to hold off a bit on the Victoria+ FTX PNW patch as it turned out to be more complicated than we thought, and we felt it best to focus on Van+ V3 first.  I’ve been working on the seasonal photoscenery: we have to have two complete sets, one that matches the Van+ custom ground textures, and one that matches the PNW textures.  As well, PNW adds a “hard winter” month (snow) that Van+ didn’t have, so PNW users will get that texture as well in V3.
