  1. Given the fact that LM's P3D is well established in the addon-community I expect it to be only short delays before compatibility is in order (if any). Also, to speak of FS2020... I can't wait. But I have to. It's not out, and most likely will not be out untill very late this year, if not next year. P3D v5, however, comes next week. I'll put my money there for now. (and why not support several simulators - no need for a war. X-plane is brilliant too, and it is out now for all to play) :-) Exciting days locked in my sim-basement... :-P
  2. This is a surprice for us civiians. Let's hope the masters at Orbx aren't surpriced.... Source: https://www.prepar3d.com/home-slider/2020/04/115906/ Froogle commenting:
  3. I'd also very much love San Luis Obispo as a full airport addon from Orbx. I fly on PilotEdge, and there is always traffic there, and I'm sure an up to date and well made airport would be lovely for us all. (and one hopes for Oceano as a bonus airport). :-)
  4. I’m 35, and very happy to see that all the older bodies here have young minds - that makes me look forward and at the same time enjoy the time here and now. Flight Sim makes me a babbling nerdy kid - so don’t get me started!
  5. I find it interesting that they are even asking about the reaction IF they decide not to involve 3rd party addons. Is this still a valid question? For real? Haven’t they learned that lesson?
  6. 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! :-)
  7. 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. :-)
  8. 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! :-)
  9. 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
  10. 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."
  11. 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).
  12. 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.
  13. 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!
  14. 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.
