  1. Love it. Keep these conversions going, boys.... I am going to want my Orbx environment ready and there waiting for me when I finally make the move.
  2. The Chair Force is on station. Happy New Year to all - all the best to you OND.
  3. Merry Christmas Don, thank you. Best wishes and a much anticipated Happy New Year to all here in our humble forums.
  4. May your holiday be merry and bright. Cheers to all, and thanks for everybody that contributes to make this community that makes so many of us here feel at home - starting with you, sir, Mr. Emms.
  5. I would love for Orbx to roll in and seriously dominate the regional airports of France offerings. I'd support that effort.
  6. Abriael, you are clearly a writer. I've hired blog post writers that aren't as productive as you. You dismiss views of others here as irrelevant, and then then you go on to call the 'game vs sim' argument as absolutely ridiculous. And several paragraphs on, you follow that up with the following statement - Try simulating ANYTHING at all with P3D without loading tons of addons on top of it, and we'll have a good laugh. Did I get that correct? I tried to type it out verbatim. So which is it? Sure looks to me like you are a major proponent of MSFS. BTW wh
  7. Hmmm... I'll have some of that, thank you. Oh crap, it is for MSFS only. Damn, I just bought it. Oh well, it will be there waiting for me when I eventually make the transition.
  8. I will be purchasing this to round out the collection. Planning on about another good year of P3D and then it's probably on to a more mature MSFS by 2022.
  9. Wayne, I would have thought the same. However, did you see where the new Nis product is not going to be developed for P3D? Ok maybe that is a one off, but I now have started to wonder if this is the new state of affairs.
  10. I was about to ask the same thing about P3D airports. My guess is it won't be long until this also goes the way of FSX.
  11. +1 FSX like FS9 just refused to die and soldiered on for well over a decade. Now there is XP & P3D that are still in their youth, relatively speaking - but here comes the reincarnation of the FS series. Now I am slowly coming to realization that P3D v4 is going the way of the dodo now. From one point, I get it. As a developer, you don't have to spend time/energy working on photoreal imagery to surround the airports - that is largely built in, from what I gather. Now you can focus on the ground materials and 3d objects. It probably saves big costs for all that ima
  12. I have seen photos that didn't look this real.
  13. Hey thanks guys - I don't post here often enough to really be remembered, so for me it was quite a pleasant surprise to spot this thread this morning. I appreciate it, thanks for thinking of me. Now I just need to decide which and how many Orbx airfields I can fly to/from before the game comes on (Go Seahawks).
  14. This is a deserving winner. Nice job ydelta - tell us which product you decide on!
