  1. So close guys and girls, you are gonna need to stock up on your insect repellent! What more can I say other than this is what Bush Flying is all about!

  2. Just a few shots to encourage exploring the new area a little more in depth, also Tims New 182 repaint for those lucky enough to have the A2A 182. release is getting very close. I'd like to thank all for the encouraging comments and support for our bush packages, hoping to get you all out there testing your flying skills while exploring these testing yet fun strips. cheers and safe landings Ken and Tim

  6. I used to have a fine collection of Kolsh & weissbier glasses... liberated and then wrapped in hotel toilet paper & carefully placed in my luggage to make it back home... These glasses were fond memories from my many times spent at wonderful bierkellers & micro breweries with my colleagues in Germany...one day she removed them all from their respective shelves in my 'man cave' and washed them all in the dish washer...thus removing all the wonderful print and detail on them...they also ended up in the bin God knows how I have made it to 27 years of marriage!!!

  10. Start a thread that we could use to help each other out for flying the strips of PNG. Ideally to have "local knowledge" of each field and then later to rate them based on difficulty so that others can use that info to start off on the less difficult and work there way from there. Kinda like a ski slope rating perhaps. Right now I'm working on Launumu. Its one of the higher alt strips at 5082 feet so one doesnt have to go deep down into the valley on landing. The strip is dome shaped and its a Northeast/Southwest set up. I landed heading Southwest as the far side of the strip (the south

  11. Seems to me that many of us sitting in the Pilots' Lounge are, shall we say, of advanced experience--that is, we're old. I woke up this morning with a question on my mind, that being how I stack up in relation to other Forum Readers in terms of remaining original body parts. Here's my replacement count so far: 1. Nylon retainer for heart valve/bypass results. 2. Titanium wire securing sternum. 3. Artificial right hip. 4. Mostly crowns and bridges for teeth. 5. Artificial eye lenses. I know that the above count doesn't qualify me for the fi

  13. Exactly and I agree and understand your post and points as well. Once I was playing a game called Mafia and after exhausting every thing I could think of to get past a current level I was stuck on resulted in going online to find out what I was not doing. There are just times when in order to enjoy the fun you paid for you need help. One other suggestion is if you have and use FSPassengers and do the whole own the plane thing, it will remember and save your plane at the last location as well but it also saves the state of the plane like saving the flight does. I just did two flights into

  16. Tim is making starting points but I feel sorry for anyone who has to use them. Ken and Tim have created something new, adventure packages. Using starting spots is like buying an adventure role playing game and then getting all the saved levels so you can jump to any one of the levels without having to worked your way up to it. I've crashed more times than I have landed at these strips, get disappointed because I have to start all over and all that jazz, but when I do land and get back out okay, its way more rewarding and gives me more desire to take the challenge all the more serious.

  23. Another way I've found to do this is to switch from Fair Weather to Clear Skies and then back to Fair Weather. This will reset the cloud base upwards relative to the aircraft elevation. Doug

  24. Excellent to hear of the intention for PNG. someone mentioned about having a crowd of locals at the strip like we often see in the videos. Would this be something to think about as a switchable option?

  29. Some splendid cutlery on show here ...I wish I had liberated some fine examples now when travelling business with the airlines for decades... Only item liberated was a headrest cover / throw from 1st class (free upgrade) on a Northwest 747 Minneapolis St Paul to Schiphol... that ended up on the top of my office chair for a while. I always used to collect / purchase the little aircraft models of the plane I was on out of the airlines brochure...I had dozens of them (probably would have been worth something now) but they got thrown out in a very aggresive "spring clean " by the

  31. Well this is a topic off the beaten track. I've only ever received plastic knives and forks. I've also only flown commercially twice. Apart from you guys pocketing the real cutlery , I bet we can all guess why they wouldn't hand out steel utensils any more. Cheers,

  36. Thank you, John, for keeping us posted on how things are going. Just wanted to check and see if KHAF was still on Misha's to do list. It was on the radar last year and then came Agua Dulce, and it was a pleasant surprise for many. Keep up the great work! Garland

  42. Okay. I am no official support, but will try. There are several suggestions under: http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/forum/25-faq-answers-to-frequently-asked-questions-here/ Some may be outdated, though. According to my experience you only have to uninstall Global Base which comes with an uninstaller (and can be found under the Windows Programs Menu). Otherwise it should be sufficient to delete the complete ORBX subfolder under your simulators's main folder. If you don't delete the config directories of your simulator before making a reinstall (w

  43. Hey, I remember when we used to talk about having more than 2 colours, hidden line removal (for the wireframe models) and the ability to take advantage of a whole 32K of RAM. Progress is never ending, and a good thing too!

  44. Well, if all we really cared about were flight dynamics and FDE, we'd load our A2A Comanches into default FSX and be done. And Orbx would never have made it! We've likely gotten about as good flight modeling as we're likely to get in any sim from a few third party developers for FSX and DCS. There are limits to representing three-dimensional dynamics on a two-dimensional screen or even VR. It is the desire to fly those faithfully rendered air vehicles over realistic terrain that pushes us and our machines and drives most after market purchases and keeps us chasing the perfect

  46. Should have been 'sorry for being slow' rather than 'thanks for being slow' but I hope you realized that I'm still wondering if there's anything I can do to make the textures/seasons match reality in Sweden a bit better other than buying FTX Norway which includes this fix that has been mentioned?
