I have a bet to keep - there is a guy here that wants me to reach first place. He thinks to show this as a opotunity to make some money - He wants to recommend me as a one of the selebratated pilots in here so someone to invest in my life. To help me with better computer. I need good remarks. Like for example flight time. Because the investor is a fighter pilot. He can do something for me.

This seems like a waste in my opinion.

Just fly for fun!

Not willing to sound rude here, but then that's the point I guess.

Agreed Josh well put, those "pilots" that are climbing up the rankings quicker than me ( putting in 24 hours a day 7 days a week) because they start a flight going and leave it going on frozen fuel, don't bother me, let them take a 777 when they have 8000+ hours and do a manual landing along side me with (curretly) around 2000 hours, and I bet they couldn't so this would prove that they are just glory hunters and not real simulation pilots!

Pavlin,i didn't say we were "real" pilots, All I was making the point about was, Stop worrying about others and fly for yourself! That's all I do, I was commenting about the likes of "N8AHR" and "N10SE" who very rarely seem to take off and land anywhere they have a 97.95% and 98.24% effective flight rate respectively. Which says they are up in the air more than on the ground (Not stopped anywhere doing pre-flight checks or setting up for a take off) I was NOT having a go at you at all, I am "on your side" just saying don't let them worry you and just do your thing! The other part of my comment was aimed at the above pilots NOT YOU if we put them in an aircraft I bet they would make a right mess of landing, as I said they just spend all their time in the air so maybe couldn't land! I think all that have commented on this post can all say we can take off and land our planes to a fairly high standard, because we all put in the practice within the hours we have completed unlike those individuals. I hope this has cleared things up that my last post, about being able to take off, fly from point "A" to point "B" and land is something we can all be proud of. Unlike the above "glory hunters" who just want the hours under their belts and to be number 1 & 2 respectively.

Ya, obviasly. But the weird here is that the duds / he and me / are on the peak of the table in top 10 pilots. I do long houl flights, like for example KSFO-YSSY with MD11. Witch is 18 hours. What is the point - to gain something that can not make me better pilot. So, actually this fight I do is foolish. But I do not like to be cheated - I think I gain experience that he does not gain. And that is the reason that I am so mad - he is first, without a lot of aircraft experience and I , witch make so much flights and make videos from them on a second place. It is not good for my selfesteme.

This thread is a joke, right? You're not seriously arguing over who gets to have the #1 spot on a completely irrelevant tracker list, and you're not seriously investigating strategies how one could cheat? Because that's the kind of thing I get for breakfast conversations with my daycare-aged daughters and I'm trying hard to get these ideas out of them and make them focus on what's actually important...

But hey - here it goes: Get into orbit. You can just leave your capsule there for as long as you want without having to fear a malfunctioning AP or running out of fuel - you'll just stay in orbit. And you'll log miles of distance covered... And once you get bored, you simply get back to Earth and admire your record-breaking time in air and miles covered.

I have to agree with Thorsten this time.
Because if your goal is to reach number 1 position on the tracker Pav, it's not a matter of doing long haul sightseeing flights anymore.
I tell you this, presently thuko48 (#1) is at 1072 days of flight time, you are at #13 with 169 days of flight time, which means you're about 903 days behind him, that's around 2.5 years of non-stop flying. You have to be realistic at this point, it's a nearly impossible challenge.
I'd say just fly for fun and don't care about rankings, it doesn't worth it.

I have a bet to keep - there is a guy here that wants me to reach first place. He thinks to show this as a opotunity to make some money - He wants to recommend me as a one of the selebratated pilots in here so someone to invest in my life. To help me with better computer. I need good remarks. Like for example flight time. Because the investor is a fighter pilot. He can do something for me.

Are you sure it wasn't a joke or something?

(Half joking OT mode) There is a chance to be Nr. 1, maybe. Look here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_relativity ... to bend spacetime, you only need lots more digital matter. Program your private extension to FG that allows you to travel farther than the Local Group, use it (and don't tell the tracker, only the investor fighter pilot), soon you'll have 1000s of years of flight time (and we will all live in a very different universe (with more Paisley, I hope)) ;-)(Off)

Ignore N8AHR, N10SE, and N10NSE. They are packet generators for a study of bandwidth, latency, and bugs in the MPServer/fgms public network.
