  1. What a nice surprise! A release without the "Final Shots"-Warning! I hope Iain is well!? Yesterday I received my new 1TB-SSD One question though: In the P3D-Version there was a little wooden helipad up in the montains above the village. Is that also included in the X-Plane version?
  2. Great shots! Many happy landings, DocBird
  3. Indeed a long way from the early eighties... I remember that in my hometown there was a computer store that had a PC on its display. And on the monitor there was a sequence of flight simulator running and a F-18 took off from an aircraft carrier and folded its gear away. I was absolutely flashed by the look of that folding process since on my brothers ATARI there was nothing like that. I took some more years before I could buy my first own PC for gaming... For me the most important change was the discovery of VR last year. When XP 11 offered the VR-experience I bought a Rift 1 and was completely flashed. It is like being there right inside the cockpit. Pushing the buttons and grabbing the yoke, looking out of the window to see the beautiful scenery is amazing. WOW! And now I sit here and wait for the download to complete (8 Mbit/s…). Should be finished tonight after 12 hours of loading. I hope the rest of the process can run over night so it will be ready for a first flight tomorrow morning. Can’t wait to see it with my own eyes.
  4. I know there was the possibility of "preorder" back at the early days of Orbx and I remember the reasons why that was ceased... It would, however, be great if we could press a button to purchase and then go to bed or to work or shopping and return home to find that the download has started and the sim is about to be ready for action. Certainly too late for TE Washington but it might be a feature for the new central!?
  5. Great shorts, Ian! Is it intentional that the DHL-Logo on the fin of the airplanes in the third shot is invers?
  6. Is there any information (please) on the actual download size and the headroom on the HD to install this?
  7. And a lot of folks here in Germany have a bank holiday on Thursday and have taken Friday off. So tomorrow or Thursday would be great. ... not trying to push things here ... ;-)
  8. Okay, excellent news and thanks for the warning! So it is NOW time to go for a new SSD...
  9. Sorry, a bit late but may still be useful for today's presentations: https://fselite.net/fsexpo19/ Many happy landings! DocBird
  10. Looks like you are having a good time! Must be great to meet people in person who you work with online for a long time. For all of us who are unable to attend: There is a live stream coming from the conference. I am not sure if I may post the link here. So maybe one of the moderators or a team member can do this (or let me know). Looking forward to an interesting weekend! Have fun and many happy landings! DocBird
  11. This looks like a big step ahead! Another suggestion: Could this tool also include a automatic update function for third party addons like weather tool, third party libraries and/or maybe even the core sims themselves? I often have only very limited time to fly per week and sometimes it is eaten up by running updates of the simulator, the Oculus software, the weather tool, the weather connector, a library here, an airport there... Very frustrating... It would be great if one software could run all those downloads (downloadspeed here in Germnay is about 8 Mbit/s) and updates over night.
  12. Look at those mountains in the background! This is amazing.
