  1. +1. I love these threads! All my pets have passed on, but I love hearing stories and seeing pics of others' pets. @Benny, I'm very sorry to hear that your Maya is sick. I know how hard that can be. I hope she gets well soon! Praying for her and you.
  2. This new sim is looking and sounding more and more amazing. As others above noted, FSElite has been putting out some good content on the new sim: FSElite Attended Microsoft’s Flight Simulator Global Preview Event Hands-On With the New Microsoft Flight Simulator An Overview of the Technical Details for the New Microsoft Flight Simulator Microsoft Flight Simulator Developer Interview – Episode 1: World and Weather Microsoft Flight Simulator – 4K Previews from the Global Preview Event
  3. I'm 26. I started simming when I was about 10, I think.
  4. This is what came to my mind initially upon seeing the abbreviation "OBE." I was a bit confused for a moment. The mental image of the whole Orbx team sitting around astrally projecting or something is a bit of an odd one.
  5. Happy Birthday, Martyn! Glad to have you back on the forums!
  6. Nice work, François! This is quite an undertaking! Thanks! I noticed some airports in North Carolina and Virginia missing from the list; I'll send you a message with a list of them.
  7. Merry Christmas to you and your family, Iain, and to the rest of the Orbx team and forum members! A few days ago, we received close to a foot of snow where I live in North Carolina, so we're having something of a "white Christmas" here, although I don't know how much (if any) of the snow on the ground will remain until Christmas Day.
  8. Very sad news. I corresponded with Neil on a number of occasions via the forums and email regarding FTX Global freeware airports and his "misfit" airports project. As others have said, he was a true gentleman who was passionate and prolific in his work. Among his many superb FTX Global freeware creations was a detailed, outstanding rendition of my local airport KBUY (a project he very kindly took on at my request), as well as other airports in my area. He also fixed a large number of "misfit" airports that I pointed out in his misfit airports thread. The work he did on these airports was excellent; he was meticulous (and fast!) in recreating the airports in accordance with their real-world counterparts and in ensuring the accuracy of his work. Neil told me this once in an email: "I use the doing of these airports as something to keep me busy, and add (hopefully) to the enjoyment of others. I'm 77 yrs old and NEED something to keep me busy and mind occupied." Neil certainly has added to my enjoyment and the enjoyment of countless others and left a great legacy in the massive body of airports he created for Orbx, and most of us here know little of his life beyond just this one small corner. I am glad to have had the opportunity to correspond with him and am very grateful for the work he did. Neil will be missed by many. My condolences to his family, friends, and the Orbx team.
  9. Congratulations, Iain, and thanks for all you do here! You make these great forums a better place, and your screenshots are always stunning. (And that is one beautiful moggie you have there!)
  10. Wow! That sounds like an amazing trip, Caleb! Have fun! I'm looking forward to the photos and videos you'll post. That's really cool! Any chance you could post some photos or videos of these aircraft or any of your real-world flying?
