  1. Oh my! Prepare for internet meltdown on the 30th then! Looking great though, has a minimum spec been posted of what we'll need to run it?
  2. Great work everyone, there's no 'thumbs up' emoticon to use but if there was I'd have used it several times! Just installed a couple of freeware airports as well as the library update and it was all trouble free and nice and quick too. I did encounter the "you do not have access to this build" message but it only took me a few seconds to find the answer Simon
  3. KCEC sounds like it needs investigating, that this afternoon's flight sorted then Simon
  4. It's not just the airport you're getting, there's lots of the surrounding area that's been modelled too: https://www.fullterrain.com/product/pavd And it is Orbx quality, $40 is a steal! It's roughly £23 GBP so that seems the going rate for a high quality payware airport, Simon
  5. No need for anything else? Don't forget all of the lovely airports that go very well with PNW Welcome to Orbx world Cthudak, you live in a very scenic part of the world by the way! Enjoy PNW, Simon
  6. I think the guys from REX are working on some HD airport building textures, there's some info on D'Andre's news site, Regards, Simon
  7. Another old-schooler here, I've always had a great experience with FSS so I share your concerns. I'm also a bit wary about having to rely on a Steam-type interface for downloading. My home broadband service is, on a good day, usually running at about 4Mbps. It's usually ok for downloading airports but for larger areas forget it. Luckily I'm an IT bod and have a superquick uplink at work so at the moment accessing larger files isn't a problem. Will we still be able to download the files required from another computer without having FTX Central installed on it? Simon
  8. Another simmer here in need of a chair upgrade, it's only a matter of time before the duct tape and string have to come out! Simon
  9. A work colleague of mine sent me this: http://www.content-delivery.co.uk/aviation/airfields/ Some nice aerial views if you're interested in that sort of thing, Simon
  10. Just downloaded them myself, I think the virtual skies over the UK will be fairly busy this weekend. Added Welshpool to the list, well it would be rude not to! Another big thanks for all the hard work you've done to get the V3 installers out, Simon
  11. Crikey Ed, that's a really low figure! I religiously run the latest Orbxlibs as soon as it's released and keep it handy if it needs to be re-run after a new/updated install, Simon
  12. Crikey Russ, that sure is a bumper bundle you're giving us! Looking forward to that one, Regards, Simon
  13. Thanks for this info Jay, like many others I have a 'few' Orbx products so was getting worried about not being able to put all of my order numbers in! Simon
  14. It was horrific. I live a few miles north of Shoreham and was watching the Hunter display when it went down. There's a lot of grief around these parts at the moment. Just heard news at least seven people have lost their lives. The jet hit the main road junction by the airport and at that time of day the area was packed with vehicles and pedestrians. My thoughts go out to the loved ones of those unfortunate people who won't be going home tonight, Simon
