  2. It feels like part of the issue is that people are expecting to be able to be at ground level and still have high detail. As far as being a sim is concerned I'll never get close enough to see low resolution textures away from airports and they look fine from any sensible height you'd be flying. From a realism point of view we wouldn't be flying that low over London anyway. Microsoft look like they're going to be attracting a new gamer based audience with this title who will be less likely to care about following any rules and expect everything to be high resolution close up. It's a new platfor

  3. On another forum (Insiders) I read that flying under bridges doesn't work in MSFS 2020. Apparently there's an invisible block and something really bad happens to the aircraft.

  4. Join Gaya Simulations on our latest adventure in Austria! Zell am See: the first ever native Microsoft Flight Simulator Airport! Zell am See is a small airport tucked away in the Alps, approximately 100km away from Salzburg. It’s a general aviation field with aircraft of up to 5.7 tonnes allowed to land on its 664 metre long asphalt runway. Alongside the sealed runway, two more smaller grass strips are also contained within the grounds. The perfect location for scenic GA flying and soaring, Zell am See proves to be a great base for mountain training - combine that with the

  7. I just installed the latest Nvidia driver 452.06 which is optimized for MS2020. This is a little spin in XPlane Vulkan 11.50b17 at Southampton with TEGBS I hadn't expected any change but I noticed two things , compared with the same test flight I made here yesterday (looking at some different things) This is with Adams lut @Adam Banks , @olderndirt. Firstly the image on my screen is noticeably clearer - The AA at maximum settings is working better. Secondly, it is super, super smooth. It just like one is truly floating I had a pretty

  9. I'll add my vote to this. Hopefully the pack should only replace anything missing or not properly modelled in the default sim. This is a great example of something that shouldn't be replaced.

  15. Hi Nick. I have registered as requested. Even though I am not the original poster of the thread, I am keen to find out if an option to remove some of the models is possible. After spending a decent amount on a few Orbx packages today to improve my FS2020 experience, and the London skyline is 100% improved by this compared to vanilla, the Orbx pack replacing the few hand modelled buildings with lower quality assets is very disappointing. I would love to be able to use the Orbx pack whilst seeing the high quality MS FS2020 Shard. The Orbx pack should only improve on what is missing, not repla

  24. RESOLVED. Just after I wrote this post, I decided to delete my TEMP folder that Orbx uses to download their products to. I received an error message while trying to delete the Orbx TEMP subfolder that said one of the files was corrupted. BINGO. So I renamed the Orbx subfolder to Bad Orbx and that solved the problem. I opened up Orbx Central, and had no issues downloading and installing EGLC!

  27. It does not have to tell automatically. You just offer a list subscription management area where we can select/deselect different lists to subscribe to. All mailing list managers support that. So for example you could have the lists: Announcements and News X-plane releases P3D releases etc... And you ask newly registered users which lists they want to subscribe to.

  28. My experience with downloading the EGNM package is that it automatically takes priority over the default. So I presume that you don't need to delete the default. In this way if you ever remove the Addon, it will automatically revert to the default.

  29. Forgive me if this is a little blunt, I promise it is not intended to be a provocative post but: Have the Orbx devs just copied their sceneries and are releasing them as MSFS products? I've seen some FSElite exclusive previews this morning (on ultra quality) and I am very underwhelmed. EGNM - if you look outside the front of the terminal building the ground textures are VERY low resolution and all of the vehicles outside the terminal and in the car parks are all misplaced. Yes I know these are outside the airport and not really seen when conducting a serious flight, but if anyo

  33. These scenery captures are from an incredible high fidelity and crispclear quality, what will be the answer to MSFS by the other Sim's? Not to beat MS but in trying to match in quality.

  38. Well, in that case, there really wouldn’t be any need for Orbx products at all. Orbx exists to make our simulation environment more realistic. When developers mention the extraordinary new features a new sim will bring, I expect said products to be at least at or above the quality of the older sim, not sub-par. Again, I am very happy to purchase Orbx addons for this new sim. But... I do expect a quality job to be done, especially from a company such as Orbx that prides itself on the quality of it’s scenery products, and also for having worked with MSFS in development of the new simulator.

  42. Hi Nigel One of my brother-in-laws does woodworking for a hobby. His favorite expression is that one can never have too many saws. And he has quite a collection let me tell you. For the longest time, I had the opinion that I would gracefully retire XPlane, but having seen videos of both I have come to realize that for me I will enjoy that they do different things and offer different opportunities. I really enjoy tweaking XPlane, especially things that affect the visual aspects of the product and along with that learning new things about lighting physics and digi

  43. Our information is that for US customers a sales tax will be applied on top of the prices we sell for. The Marketplace as far as we are aware use the applicable currency for a customer based on location. We have used USD pricing in our announcements as it's far more recognisable and there is still confusion with our AUD being thought as USD prices. As for our site, no change for the time being - we still charge in AUD.
