    My motion ride? Cheers. Not that expensive. Maybe $1000 in parts. Compared to commercial prices. And Next Level , sold by Pagnian , ,motion based "borrowed" ideas from xsimulator.net 😁

    its cheap enough to build an arcade cab these days, theres plans, use MDF, maker anything from a bartop to a full standing one, theres plenty pre loaded game boards as well from arcade stuff, anything from 99 to 999 games loaded. Buy the joysticks, buttons, power supplies, all available online and fairly straight forward to put together. Theres a Australian group on Facebook, Retro arcade builders, that have a deal going with a chinese supplier, and guys there will cut up a cabinet or pass you plans to do your own. Use LCD tv as screen, even get a line generator (crt screen display look) if you wish to make it look more authentic on screen, and off you go.

    I also started with too many 20c coins at the local shops, Galaga, 1942, pinball machines, Wonderboy, etc, as well as having commodore 64 with a few games, then Atari console I had to repair. Always been around video games since at least 5 years old. Mate of mine passed away at a young 89 years and he was still race gaming up till a week before his passing. 😁

    The older pinball are collector's items these days and can be worth a bit depending on condition

    Gamers - any out there?

    Hello gamers, just re-booting an old thread after I got tipped off Im a casual gamer these days, mostly racing, Assetto Corsa Competizione is main game these days. But have enjoyed the GRID series, Dirt series and have played Race 07, rfactor, Asetto Corsa, Project cars 1 and 2 I play on home built motion racer, built it mah self, including the DIY actuators, I use off the shelf motor controllers, actuators use off the shelf ball screws, 12v DC motors, and a bit of wood work. All PC controlled and using Simtools software. even the motion seat mover is 4 x 2 The wheel stand that clamps to the desk is also home built and made from steel. I run Fanatec V2 base and M3 wheel , clubsport h-pattern shifter, and G27 pedals with brake spring mod, via adapter . Some videos of it in action, If you browse the rest of my channel, you will see, this is not the first motion ride ive built. The sim kicks like a mule on acid when motion set hard, Its a ball of fun, but can be a bit nasty on the ol' back, especially if Ive been boating during the day. Ive since upgraded the 32" tv to a 35" widescreen monitor, as in photo below. Cheers, David.

    Trailer for 3m tinny

    Most people want quite a quid for registered trailers. As ive blue slipped 2 in the past, the hassles outweighed the result. Especially if it's old trailer, and new builds have to follow certain rules. Blue slip station and RMS can advise on requirements. But that's just me...😁 EDIT. I'm amazed that people just don't want to pay the $110 ish or so per year to keep it on the road.

    Bust Up

    About 3 pm. Saw , I think 3 total, one was going past my boat near Lunar park. The others were seagull gatherings.

    Bust Up

    Yep.

    Bust Up

    Ok. I was going to go 4-5" pre jigged paddle tails , maybe white or silver with 8' rod armed with 15lb braid and 20lb mono leader. Probably overkill I'd say....

    Bust Up

    I went out Saturday and yes, saw a few seagull, bait busting going on from near balls head right up Luna Park bay areas. Looked decent size fish. Not sure what species. I didn't have heavy gear to toss lures at them at the time.
