How's It Going? I Can See My House From Here Edition

I spent this morning trying to find the house I live in within a video game. Welcome back to our daily open thread.

I’ve been fiddling with Microsoft Flight Simulator for the past couple of days, mainly just poking about until my new flight stick arrives. One goal of mine, which I imagine is the goal of many fiddlers, was to find my home in the game. Examine the picture above. See that blue line winding through the bottom right? That’s the Chattahoochee River. I live right around that bridge near the plane’s tail.

Finding your address in the game is pretty easy. Just grab your coordinates from Google Maps, search for them in the custom flight path option in Flight Simulator, and you can set them as a departure point or destination. Fancy website Rock, Paper, Scissors has a lovely guide should you need help.


Can you see your house from where you are? How’s it going?

I love it what when I see something is going to be a problem and I point that out to the people who need to approve it and don’t get a response, that there are a flurry of emails about it being a problem the next day. Fuck you vendors, and your goddamn power plays.
