  1. I set FTX Central to download The full suite of Global-products, as well as 5-6 regions and 10-15 airports. Prepared a meal and came back to configure and fly. Easy. Now the only thing lacking in the Global is Mesh. If Orbx had their own mesh product it would be easier - only install for the needed regions and not having to mess with the 15 zips I get from FS Global these days... So, Orbx... any plans to complete the Global line-up with your own mesh? I’d buy it, for sure! :-)
  2. I think that is an added bonus. ;-) I'm doing my flying /A (without GPS) and without autopilot, so no automation for me in the cockpit. But I want to spend more time in the sim and less time deep in folders and installers. :-)
  3. I'm in the process of reinstalling everything regarding P3Dv4, and I just realized how thankful I am that Orbx (and other developers) have come such a long way in streamlining everything for us. Remember how timeconsuming a complete reinstall was earlier? - The different vendors if one needed to download. - All those zipfiles. - The serial keys - Updates - again, all those zipfiles - And so many other irritations that I've simply forgot (banished from my memory) Also this: - The changing of regions. Remember that? We actually had to change regions outside the sim to be able to shift between the different layers... All this to say thanks for the great job Orbx has done with FTX Central and their store! :-)
  4. Hot damn! That was a quick trip from "my first shots" to "my final shots"! Bring it on! I'm ready to back "home" to my Flight Unlimited 2-home! :-D
  5. I gotta say it. That first picture looks like a screenshot from P3D. Some kind of Orbx-airport. Ain't that weird? :-P "Life imitating art."
  6. And, importantly, the wonders of Half Moon Bay when Santa Barbara is done? :-D Half Moon Bay is "my" airport, as opposed to Meigs Field. I cut my teeth at KHAF when getting hooked on flightsimulators with Flight Unlimited 2 (and 3, later).
  7. SIM CFI on YouTube has very very excellent videos on flying in general. He uses real world charts and also the A2A planes for added realism. Orbx is also heavily featured obviously. This one is perfect for basic visual navigation from maps, but you'll find others on his channel on VOR and other nav-aids.
  8. Why the FK do people wait for the last second? (or, indeed, for the second after, only then to complain?) This happens everytime. Get a grip!
  9. I'd love to see Key West. Or Hawaii. Or the Caribbean. The Caribbean is probably my dream #1. All those beautiful small islands. All those weird and small airfields. It's magnificent.
  10. Hey, That is great news. Please take a look at Bonny Doon Village airport nearby if you can. It would be a nice bonus if you do some of the coastline from Half Moon Bay. That little airport is such a beauty. Bonny Doon Village is always on my plan if I'm at Half Moon Bay. I'm sure others, like me, have grown up with Flight Unlimited 2. Half Moon Bay and Bonny Doon Village were iconic airports there. :-)
  11. I marked my interest in the poll thinking that it would be also for Norway. I'd love to have my family home in the sim (and the slightly messy neighbourhood landclass). That would be southern Norway, in FTX Norway (duh). :-)
  12. Wow! Wow to the power of googolplex! This needs to be Orbxified, indeed! :-D
  13. Good grief! Folks, you say you trust PayPal? I did as well, but Orbx don't and have very good reasons to not want to deal with them. What John Venema described earlier is almost nothing short of theft, and I wouldn't use them either, so I'm happy to use Stripe. Stripe works perfectly for me, and is in many ways easier and safer as far as I can see it.
  14. Having problems with my FTX Central, as many others have, I tried (and failed) installing regions I didn't already have installed. When doing this I noticed that I didn't have any of the NA regions installed at all. This confused me much, as I have the last few days been flying low and slow with the A2A Piper Cub, using real FAA Paper charts to navigate with. I didn't notice! I had been flying with the whole FTX Global range installed (Global, LC, Vector), but none of the regions. I checked the screenshots and realise that the regions are better overall (and the airports and other POIs in particular), but it was way good enough for me to have a very good time flying and never realising that something was amiss. This is a beautiful and magnificent discovery, as this means that Orbx is really transforming the scenery in a monumental way. I love my regions, and spend much time in them, but the Global Range is not to be overlooked - it's a must-have! Thanks for the great work, and keep it up! :-D
