  1. Well it really is the death of P3D when XP looks this fantastically brilliant. Well done.
  2. So its definitely not worth buying MSFGs version if Orbx is putting it out. Esp if it comes with the City and is that city finish similar to Melbourne in v2? So maybe released this year???
  3. Any chance that Orbx's presentations (on video) could be posted. Some of us couldn't go as we had a choice of buying more Orbx products over the next year, or go to the show. The show last only 2 days but our flying goes all year.
  4. Hi Iain, I know your busy but is there any chance of some photos of the larger airports that have been upgraded, eg Darwin, Townsville, Williamtown, etc. I know they won't be Orbx's normal 'payware' standard, but would love a sneak preview anyway as l'm sure others who fly Heavies would as well. Thanks Anthony
  5. This is really worth a look at, not to mention his other Youtube videos that really addresses many of the questions we keep asking about the performance of different hardware (RAM, GPU, etc). The videos are basic and easy to understand and eye-opening! .

    Hi Robs, I thought I would respond as having exactly the same problem and despite looking extensively through the forums over the last few months, I have had no success. I haven't deleted it yet as it took so long to get to the same point you have, hoping someone may come up with an answer, but not holding my breath. And support from the developer is non-existent. I haven't even seen a response from anyone using it on a network where it actually works. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I really believe it is basically broken.
  7. Hi Ian, Possibly an impossible question to answer, but just about to update my VR computer (Oculus Rift). Is there any idea what specs would be needed to run the new Australia v2 flying in and around Melbourne (CPU and GPU) to get the visual effect that we are seeing in the photos. P.S. wont hold you to it
  8. Sorry to ask as I know this will be somewhere, but can anyone please post a link to the updates being done in V2. Did a search but couldn't find it. Much appreciated.
  9. thanks Ausie 123, much appreciated for the numbers. And thanks Haydn for the detailed reply. Most informative and worth remembering. New to the Heavies as real flying is GA so the Heavies are a learning curve esp with the full scale 737 cockpit. But a great challenge.to keep the brain going in retirement.
  10. Thanks guys, Will head to Flightware. Should have remembered that’s the go to place for my issue. Will also check AIr Services Australia. Much appreciated Anthony
  11. Hi, Just curious if any one knows the correct parking bays at Coffs Habour and Tamworth for Heavies such as 737s (not actually a question for Orbx Team). Have done a search in the Orbx forums but no joy to such information. So finally after all these years of having Coffs Habour and then Tamworth. I have finally moved from GA into flying Heavies ie the 737. Loaded Navigraph and behold Navigraph is a little light on for Coffs Habour and Tamworth in parking bays and SIDS, to the point Navigraph does not have a chart with any numbers of parking areas for 737s on chart 10-9. Or is there a SID for either airport. I notice on the Orbx pictures there are 737s at Coffs and articles from Coffs Habour confirms they can fly in and out of at least Coffs Habour, but nowhere can I find the correct areas to park it. Orbx lists Ramps at both airports, so clearly 2 or 3 of these would be the correct one for Heavies. So any help or ideas most appreciated. Also is anyone aware of a SID for Coffs Habour or Tamworth (as nothing in Navigraph, or do most doing IFR just find a waypoint close by as the first point of there IFR flight. Thanks for any ideas. Anthony
  12. Up until recently l too thought interior terminal buildings was an overkill and waste of CPU resources. Recently for my retirement l purchased a FDS 737 1:1 scale cockpit. Suddenly what was previously overkill became fantastic realism and needed immersion . As l sit in the cockpit for 30+ mins doing my preflight, all that previous unnecessary eye candy suddenly became extremely important to the point that airports which don’t have terminal buildings that are transparent and missing other features such as moving airport vehicles, people, etc is no longer enough. Whilst I understand not everyone has the full scale cockpit to sit in, it becomes clear that each of us has very different needs. And as our level of realism increases, so does our need for all these extra features. So what was once for me absolute overkill, is now a necessity for immersion into sim flying.
  13. First off l need to clarify, i love Orbx products and in P3D & FSX, could not survive without them. I have almost every product except one. But XP is a very different Platform to P3D & FSX as we all know. Many highly skilled freeware developers, and low cost sceneries help to make it a great additional platform to fly in at low cost. But the downside of this is it makes it difficult for companies to produce at a price that earns a fair return for their efforts. l am not a financially well off person due to a serious spinal injury, so my purchases have to be done probably alot more carefully than others out there. l purchased EGCB i guess expecting something WOW based on comments, but l am really sorry to say that for me, this is the first purchase of an Orbx product where l dont feel it met my expectations for the price in the XP market, esp in comparison say to KAWO from another company. Guys, please dont hate me for saying this, but whilst the airport is up to all the usual high standards of Orbx, the XP platform is a different market as l am sure many realise. Miegs was well priced due to the cross platform discount. But the diffculty for any company making scenery for XP is, it just has to be looked at in a very different way, and it has to offer something unique and alot of it. l look forward to Orbx products for the XP platform as Orbx learn’s and develops in this area, esp the TrueEarth sceneries which will be very unique for the XP market. But l have to be honest that i just don’t feel the price point vs product was a good purchase based on what is out there in the XP relm. I hope my comments can be looked at, not as an attack on Orbx in anyway (far from it), but as an opinion from a different angle than others, that may allow Orbx to maybe think about some different XP strategies in this very difficult XP Platform. Again my deepest apologies. Spacey
  14. Hi Iain, Thank you so much for your reply. Just give us a heads up idea. Agree, FPS is not the real gauge. Anthony
  15. Hi Iain, With your computer, how high are you able to run your setting and still get smooth flight, even though I understand it is still in beta and not a finished product? I do also understand that all computers are different, and set-ups are diffferent (eg I run 3 monitors and only a GTX 1080), so no guarentees, but I am just curious as a very basic guide how you are going with your settings. Thanks Anthony
