    P3D is alive and kicking. Australia V2 for P3D and PNW for XP11 in the near future? What an exciting time to be a flight sim pilot!

    One of my favourite aircraft in FSX was the Flight1 ATR. I tried hard to persuade it to work in P3Dv4 but gave up. Carenado have just released the ATR42 for P3D, but I think I'm going more down the XP11 route, so I'm trying not to invest in new add-ons for P3D. After a little research, I decided that the old Aerosoft ATR72 for XP10 may work in XP11 - worth a try anyway! As luck would have it, it more or less works - with oddities happening in the VC (semi-functional FMS etc.) but the external model looks quite good - and it appears to fly well. So ... here are some pics from a test flight around Goodwood to Southampton - TEGB South: Adam.

    So after a weekend of full reinstall of both sims to my new Hard drives (and flooring out the loft) I managed to get a little bit of flight time last night, just local to me to see how it all fits.....all seems OK but Better psuback not appearing in the plugin menu seems to be my only issue.....so a few of one of my favorite JF planes over TEUK and using UWXP with ASXP and Xvision default set..

    I thought that this thread was related to the new AUS from Orbx?? There are so many posts here that are negative, "why is to not?" and "why are you not doing it for this sim or that sim?.. Give it a rest guys, and stick to the subject. I for one cannot wait to see the new AUS, but I am giving up on this thread until the release of the scenery. Terry.

    Hello, although it is interesting to see the various guises of heavy irony in the last few posts, whether it is intended or not, the debate over whether Windows 7 or 10 is better for flight simulation is as tedious as the debate over which simulator is better. The topic was not a request for help but a statement of frustration and has run its course. Thanks to those who chose to contribute.

    I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on the latest hardware, and using UEFI instead of the old BIOS. See my signature. I would love for someone to show me the Technical reasons why Windows 10 performs better than Win 7, other than just saying Win 7 is old. "Not supported after 2020" doesn't cut it. If your system is up and running and you have complete backups, so what if a virus gets in, or some "vulnerability" gets exploited, format the disks and start over. Restore on my system takes about 15 minutes. So, for those of you that are still running Win 7, don't fret, your system is OK. Just make sure you are running Windows 7 x64 Professional or better, to access 192 gb of RAM, (Home Premium can only access 16gb). You can pickup Boxed Win 7 Ultimate on eBay, x86 and x64 together in the box, for under $100 here in AU. The only problem we have is with the new hardware. Most manufactures don't supply drivers anymore for Win 7, but there is is a couple that still do for their new boards. Serious "Gamers" prefer Win 7 and thus a couple of manufactures still cater for the gamers needs, but you have to scratch around on their web sites to get the drivers. I accept that I will have to go to Win 10 some day, but with my new system I should be good for another 10 years, by then I won't care too much. Hey, I too have been at this for a long time, 45 years. Chris.

    I had the good fortune for my wife and I to visit the historic city of York England. We had visited once before, but this time we had another purpose beyond mere tourism. I wanted to meet the Orbx Forum guru, Nick Cooper, who, lives in York. a private message of inquiry led to his welcoming response.so, today May 20, we met Nick at our hotel, strolled the city, had lunch, and were together for more than four hours. Nick has many interests beyond our hobby. We talked about his and mine, exchanged stories about family and interests. Before we realized, the afternoon was almost gone. But, I want to share a picture of us together. We are in front of York Cathedral, a towering structure and a jewel in Europe’s medieval and earlier architectural history. Thanks, Nick. It was a delight to meet you outside of normal orbx forum business hours. Sherm

    Funny enough that we want 64bit simulators, photoreal sceneries, maximal details, wonderful weather depiction and all this stuff that sometimes even a 2019 version of a flight simulator struggles to provide properly and then we run this simulator on a operating system that appeared in October 2009, almost 10 years ago. Sorry, no understanding for this. How one can stubbornly stick to such an old operating system that will even be end of support in less than one year and then complain about a 2019 software not running with the expected results? Do you also still use Internet Explorer 6 or the office package from back then? And a cell phone from 2009? I guess no...

    You can't go wrong with any Australian ORBX airport really but my personal favorite is YWOL, it's close to Sydney, very scenic with the escarpment in the background and home to an awesome aircraft museum and annual airshow - Wings over Illawarra

    California calling me this time - enjoy. "Yo, Sam. I've these two schmucks who want a change of scenery and to upsize from their current condo. Big Bear City doesn't cut it for them. Get Paul the pilot over there to take us to Palm Springs. I wanna show off the tennis courts, golf courses and spas. They'll buy right into it..." "Listen Steve, you're my twin brother, but it's gonna cost extra. The weather's marginal. The cloud base is low and it's already late in the day to go out and back. I have to pay him more or he won't go." $$$ later... "Morongo Casino, Resort and Spa. You could spend a whole weekend there." "Cabazon Dinosaurs. You know, if dinos were so great, we wouldn't be using them for fuel, am I right?" "So many outdoor activities to be had in Palm Springs. Listen Jayden, you can improve your golf swing, and Madison, you can work on your first time serve at any of these country clubs. To change it up a little, you can go hiking in the San Jacinto State Park..." "...or catch a Masters Tennis game at Indian Wells." "This is the captain. Seat belts fastened. I'll have us down before it's dark" "So guys, I'll have the paperwork ready for you to sign in the car park."
