Web Sites of Interest

Post by Inspector » Sun Aug 13, 2006 4:50 pm

I have created this thread for us to post web sites of interest to SimCentral members. If you have a web site or know of one which is to do with your hobby or similar you think might be interesting to other members then post a link and a bit of a description here.

Please DO NOT post random web sites you found whilst browsing the web. This thread is for web sites you or others might use on a regular basis.


For example:


Many members of our community are already members of New Zealand's number one SIM news web site run by one of the founders of NZ's SIM community, Agent X20. Dave (Agent) was one of the first members of the SIM forum at GPForums and was one of the biggest contributors to the community in both racing and flight sim games. After many years in that forum he eventually took a major step and created a SIM news web site dedicated to informing the NZ SIM community of news and events of interest to the NZ SIM gamers.

His hard work and dedication to his web site has paid off and it is now a central place for NZ SIM gamers to meet and read about and discuss their games, especially if you are interested in Flight SIM's.


If you haven't already visited go and have a look at KiwiSim, New Zealands No1 SIM news web site. _b

Once of the two RC clubs in christchurch. Im the webby and Im busy (bloody rFactor) so she aint finished at time of posting, but I add bits every few days and over the next year she will grow :)

We race 1/8th scale nitro off road and 1/10th scale onroad on dedicated tracks. We have water air power and hot food on site on race days. Membership is growing by the meeting and in November we will be hosting the Nitro Offroad Nationals.
If you can drum up four vehicles of almost anytype........we will round heats and a final for you.
Once a month at the moment, but will probably run a Summer series of mid week madness.

The main BMX Club in Wellington. The other is up in Kapiti. It hasn't been updated for a while - not much has been happening. I will be adding more soon as the season starts in Sep (my son races).

Something a touch different here and guaranteed to use up a lot of time visiting them .

Space stuff. There's a ton of good sites out there, ranging from:

Spaceflight Now , who have a daily News listing of launches, discoveries and the like. It's the best place for quick news updates about space.

Ecliptic Enterprises, who make the onboard cameras for rocket launches. They have a good video gallery of onboard launches, including the Shuttle ones.

NASA Photo Gateway, which has a complete listing of images taken from space of earth. Searchfor photos and see what they have.

Cassini Spacecraft, is currently in orbit around Saturn and they release new imagery every few days.

Online tv.

Streamick has a really weird name. But provides streaming video of quite a few tv channels, should you have a quiet day at work.

NASA TV, SciFi TV, BBC, ABC News - quality isn't ideal but it's not bad. Uses Quicktime for streaming the video.
