Drunk Mal Adventures

A while back I questioned why Airline pilots never used Husky Aviation’s CRJ. The responses I got, most specially from one Crim Mip, argued that the plane was too difficult to fly and that Airliners preferred planes which gave the illusion that their pilots were good pilots and could fly brilliantly.

Aside from that being something of an insulting remark to their pilots I argued that a Drunk Idiot could fly the CRJ without any major issues and today I decided to prove my point.

Enjoy.

  2. LOL Just so you know, the way NOT to get me not to comment is to let me know it annoys you. I kept trying to click on the Report Abuse button on your viewer, but no luck. I’ll do a psychological thesis on why role players prefer an easy plane to fly another time, but suffice it to say the alcohol may have caused you to miss the point.

    One question, though….how much time did you have in that plane before you flew it drunk? I could probably fly a T-34 drunk, doesn’t mean someone with no time in it could.

      I’ve had roughly an hour or two flight time in the crj and during the video I shot roughly seven hours of footage. Meaning I’ve spent more time in the crj drunk than sober.
      Also is that a challenge?

      • I meant in RL, which isn’t a challenge anyone wants to take. Since flying in SL is all eye and finger coordination, and based on the number of people who brag about being drunk, stoned, or whatever in SL, I don’t expect it’s that difficult. Especially if you SL while impaired often.

        When your ass is glued to your arm movements and flight physiology compounds blood pressure changes and inner ear balance with chemical impairment, it’s a little more difficult.

        So, 6 hours and 30 min edited out? Still, for the little you’d flown it, not bad at all.

          All right if you want to drive a t34 in real life the it’ll be a 76 varient, specifically from 1941, specifically one from factory 52 Kablinka, specially one given to the Polish.
          No drivers seat, no steering wheel and a four speed gearbox that requires you to stop to change gear and is impossible to get out of gear 2. Oh and it needs to be lubed up every 20 miles or you’ll be stopping every 10 minities to let the engine cool.

  6. Since everyone has seemed to abandon this thread, I’ll poke the gator a little with a comment on role play in SL

    The initial goal of others, the majority of SL Aviation customers imo, is to experience the social aspects of flying in SL. This is why they pay a lot of money for a new plane and spend more time sitting at the airports with the most green dots than flying it.

    Their goal is to experience the ego gratification of whatever their social view of being a pilot is, which is reinforced by being seen as one by others. They see little value in spending time learning the technical aspects of a more difficult task when they can get what they want quickly and easily. Anything in the flight parameters that is more difficult and makes them look or feel bad climbing the learning curve is seen as a waste of their time.

    It’s not insulting to many SL pilots to say a plane is too difficult to be fun, and this seems to be a projection of the elitists. They simply don’t value what the elitists do, and the elite premise is that they should. They probably CAN fly them just as well if they put the time into learning, they don’t want to waste the time (from their POV) doing what they don’t enjoy in order to do what they do enjoy.

    This attitude of superiority of goal in SL role play has done much to create the social division in SL Aviation going back years to Combat sims, and in my opinion has not justified the technical advances made to flight parameters.

    The truth of the matter is, by whatever method they chose to achieve it, the overall goal of the role playing in SL is the same. Each goal is subjective, has the same validity, and none are morally or technically superior to the others. It’s all self-gratification.

    • Ok, as a Roleplayer, I will say this.

      If you don’t want to put work in your character (In this case being the pilot) then you shouldn’t play that character.

      Just like if you want to Roleplay a groundcrew (Which I Had a blast with) then you should learn how to throw baggage around of the elitist idiots who want to just get in the mile high club of the flight attendants. (Though I did find that these men and women didn’t like a Jap Flying elbowing their luggage after they said that he needed to hurry up so that they could get in the air.)

      And to throw your “Truth of the matter” comment right out the window, there is no “Subjectiveness” to goals in Roleplay. Its always objective based: Fly a Plane, Look cool, get laid, crush some douches baggage.

      Anyway, Mal, thank you so much for the laughs. I missed these. Traction sucks, but now I am back 😀

      • I can see your side and Megan’s of this argument. As a physician in a dark combat RP sim, I saw a lot of torn-up people and had a lot of fun RPing a trauma surgeon. No one really complained (or perhaps I was too dense to notice their hints) but word got back to me that the pain in those RP sessions wasn’t just RP pain, but me being a OOC pain.

        I cleaned up my act (somewhat, anyway) and started RPing medicine according to the sim’s rules, which was just about as much fun.

        So yes, some work on the character is needed – mainly to make sure that you and the other people behind the characters are all having fun. Giving other characters attitude’s fine when it’s part of the RP, but not so fine when it gets in the way of their RP.

        But we’re all here to enjoy our Second Lives. My character in SL is wildly improbable according to any sim I’ve ever entered but sims I’ve built and run. But I manage to have very enjoyable RP with many people. So Megan Ann’s also got a fantastic point. There’s room for those of us who have basic ground school or less understanding of flight dynamics but do have good working imaginations.

        And Second Life’s big enough for those people who want more RL-faithful play and the rest of us to all have fun.

You’d make a great Leveler; all I ever see you do is attack and try to tear down anybody who actually does put the thought and effort into it or stands up for the ones who do. Your anti-“elitist” rants and saying that ‘none are morally or technically superior to the others’ is so anti-reality that its not even funny; the end result of the “philosophy” you are preaching is mindless consumption in pursuit of an ever-elusive and false (connection there, you think?) gratification instead of the true satisfaction of mastering even a virtual skill. You’re advocating ‘everybody gets a trophy’; which simply makes trophies worthless.

      You should really be ashamed of yourself. 😡

      • lol I love it. Personal attacks from elitists for saying they shouldn’t tell everyone else how to play their games. No one told YOU how to play, why do you people have to run around passing judgment on how everyone else plays their game? Let them have their gratification, why the hell should you care?

        I haven’t even posted the recent research that indicates the ways your unstructured role play may be self-destructive. The point I made is the elitist attitudes of intolerance and criticism of those who play differently than them appear to me (and many of them) to border on xenophobic, and have for years.

        I haven’t advocated “lesser” skills, greater skills, or ANY skills. What I have done is speak up for a group who is, by nature, less organized and able to defend themselves from people like you. And your reaction strengthens my case.

        “virtual skill”, your phrase. Ponder the value of that for a moment.

          • The “word salad” to which you refer is the point you ignore to make personal attacks, which is as utterly irrelevant as your drama soaked speculations as to my motivation. Just because you ignore a point, or perhaps are incapable of comprehending it, does not do a thing to counter it. Just as “LOL”ing at people is dramatic silliness one does to deflect the point.

            Passing judgment on other people’s level of role play, and their commitment to it, is the point, and all of your personal attacks only reinforce that it hit the mark. The louder you attack personally and laugh at people, the more weakness you display in your argument. Rhetorically covering your eyes with you hands and saying “I can’t see your word salad!” is all it amounts to.

            Role playing is “drama”, by nature. The question is whether your apparent affinity for drama is why you enjoy more immersive role play, or whether that role play is enabling you to project drama on to the larger community, and me here. It seems the discipline you cherish in character role play does not extend to your ability to argue a cogent point.

            Whichever it is, you clearly feel justified in telling other people how they should do their role play. The practice of which, in my opinion, once again, is what causes a major social division in SL Aviation.

      • How very disappointing. Perhaps you can explain to me how a good friend of mine, who lost an arm in an industrial accident several years ago, and who struggles daily to accomplish “simple tasks” or for that matter many others who have challenges we know nothing of are somehow seeking instant gratification. He struggles to fly the simplest aircraft. This is apparently instant and superficial and his efforts are infantile, yet to use a phrase from my own culture, maybe you ought walk a mile in another man’s moccasins. To call the trophy’s of others worthless without knowing the battles they fight is something you might consider before frothing at the mouth. The simple and reasonable approach is live and let live, and leave the judging behind.

    What amazes me about any discussion that involved “realistic flight” in SL is that there is NO SUCH THING. Since we’re talking about the CRJ, the minimum takeoff distance of a CRJ700 is 1547 meters. In SL, that is six sims. Cruise speed is 473 knots. Good luck with that.
    Compromises have to be made to have something that works sufficiently to be useful to pilots in SL. Carly’s Porter is an example of a plane that has enough realism in it to make it feel right while at the same time is functional and popular.
    I would also point out that its not so much about easy. Kelly’s Helicopters are many things but easy is not one of them (which she is very clear about in her advertising). Yet the S-92 is up to 92 craft in the wild only after a few weeks of marketing.
    I want the CRJ to work for me. I’ve got many many passenger miles in CRJ’s which is why it was actually the first jet that I purchased when I got into SL aviation. But based on Mal’s article, I guess I need to get drunk before flying it :D.

      The point is if I can fly it drunk then anyone can fly it sober. The video was to show that “realistic flight” or Dynamic Flight to give it it’s proper term does not mean Impossible to fly and should not be immediately discarded when considering what plane to choose when flying as an Airline.

      Its when you’re drunk that you find the super secret auto pilot button I have encrypted away! Only readable when you have quadruple vision >.> . On a more serious note, uhm I just wanna say and voice my intentions in building the CRJ and building in general. Starting out in sl aviation (eagerly I might add) was back before mesh was yet a thing in sl and it was just on who had the nicer looking smoother flying sculpty jets 😛 now from what I remember Erick Gregan had the Civil market with his falcons at the time and again eagerly I went on to buy the 7x. Which at the time was a great aircraft but after some time got boring to fly. I mean sure i could spend 15 minutes on the ground pushing everything to the “on” position just to turn the thing on 😛 but that didnt do me justice. to some it does, to some it constitutes a good RP craft to others like myself not so much. Now rather than tossing in the towel I started looking into building for myself and tried learning how to sculpt.. that didnt work but mesh came around litturally before I gave up that idea. So i took on mesh and found it to be alot easier and alot more intuative and set out to build a plane I really admire and make it challanging with the sense of realism. having built it and having it gotten scripted by tank I was satisfied with the experience feeling more than just a button pusher or a point and fly. Uhm as far as this little rant goes I see the discussions left and right the arguments and just the plain “Teams” (Team Edward or Team Jacob anyone :P?) With that said I set out to make an experiance that is fun to take on each flight where every time you get into the aircraft its a new experieance that keeps you a little on the edge with the CRJ. I expected some to not like it, others to love it and others to be in between but uhm. as far as whats going on above.. Mal’s right anyone can fly the SL CRJ >_> apperently drunk even but as any pilot would tell you, the gratification of flying an aircraft be it in a game/simulator/ or Real life is mastering your vehicle via experiance, flight time, and instruction. Hope I didnt blabber too much or come off confusing xD
