Making Gliders Work | Rotating Objects

1. Set the glider behind the tow craft. Just the one waypoint. Use the "set" function to attach the glider to the towplane. Use GAttack waypoint for the towplane to release the glider. Make sure there is somewhere flat for the glider to land 2-5K (IIRC) from the GATtack point. Some time ago one of the patches apparently made the gliders more difficult to use.

A Beautiful Game

If you've met me and talked with me for some length of time, you're probably aware that I really like video games. I don't just like video games - I specifically enjoy matching up against players of equal skill and playing a thrilling mental battle.

When I was young, I used to butt heads against the world's best (matter of fact, I was the world's best in one game). 

I am sometimes asked if "that's it." So.. you play a video game against people?

The point isn't the video game. I happen to prefer First Person Shooters - they are raw, real, and in your face. You are against them. Nothing else matters.

What's lovely about video games is that it's a very even playing field. There are certain limitations that everyone is limited by - a player model can only move 100 units/second. That applies to everyone. Now, who can do the most damage with that restriction?
