  1. So P3Dv5 is confirmed with a release date, X-Plane 11.50 is in public beta and MSFS keeps us updated on development progress. Basically no more surprises coming. That all said, very much looking forward to what had become a staple of Orbx with a kind of yearly look at what the coming year might look like from JV towards the early part of each new year. Specific progress of individual add-ons removed, just a general statement of what 2020 is looking like for Orbx would be great. I mean there's a lot of individual airports in P3D to make it into X-Plane and there's a lot of True Earth add-ons in X-Plane to make it into P3D. Is AeroflyFS still in the cards? What looks exciting to the developers as far as now having PBR everything in P3Dv5 via Direct X12 or seeing benefits in new development areas using Vulcan. 2020 was seen as being a huge year for simming with whats been mentioned as well as other things like possible release of DeadStick and more great things from DCS. Exciting times.
  2. So looking forward to this coming to XPlane along with SoCal. I own it in P3D as well so thank you very much for this free upgrade.
  3. We have a lot in common. I too live on the East coast (Nantucket) and use Orbx/Other great airport scenery developers, PilotEdge and FSEconomy to determine 99% of my flights. Even with having an Orbx detailed airport in both XP and P3D, its having PilotEdge ATC coverage that I enjoy most for the most immersive flights in VR. To the OP. Its taken years of addons coming available for me to become satisfied with finding the best flights that keeps me looking forward to the next flight. My list of needs boils down to these items: 1) Plane must fit the route and be study level-ist 2) Route must involve addon airports that if controlled in RL are controlled in PilotEdge. 3) Flights should not involved long cruise flights. 4) Flights need to have an FSE purpose So with that in mind, I have a small Colorado network of KDEN, KEGE and KASE that I fly the PMDG JS41 and Twin Otter Extended with. In KWYS I fly to and from KBZN, KJAC and KSUN in the Comanche. Have a small route to get pax to and from 65S out of KGPI in the Bonanza. Play the role of a High Roller with exotic taste that flies his p51 from KMRY to KLAS and back. In Xplane11 I use my C210REP to fly FAA pax based out of KSBA. Just waiting on So-Cal and the coming Orbx airports for that. Since this is an Orbx forum, in case others dont know, FSEconomy has most Orbx airports with jobs that go to other Orbx airports. Its a great way to jump in between the different Orbx addon airports in North America and Oz/NZ. Additionally, There are All In jobs for the Dash 8 in Oz and NZ to all those Orbx airports as well. Lastly for PilotEdge and FSEconomy users there are FAA Pax jobs to all towered airports in So-Cal perfect for GA planes.
  4. It would be nice if he understood his head controlled the camera and how to make smooth, small, gentle head moves and less is more. I am interested about the Reverb as far as visuals but man do I like having no headphones over my ears on the Rift S and just speakers. Hands down AFS2 is the VR sim for now.
  5. basically its an airstrip in Oz as its not one of the actual addon fields but what seems to be one that might of been revamped in Ozv2. With him not coming back until Monday, I chimed in to keep the game rolling with my offering.
  6. Aerofly as platform to mature and become anything to take up a majority of the market share was always an up hill battle but its not dead. Unlike Flight, AFS2 with its 200plus fps, VR and beautiful lighting, will have a place on my harddrive for years to come to enjoy a quick trip in the pattern or to show a friend what simming is all about as a great demo.
  7. They were blown away as expected. Saw huge potential for using it to better their skills.
  8. I know there is a lot of uncertainty in the market place right now and for the near future. That said, AFS2 is still a great platform to enjoy VR in. The few products that I really hope that will come out in 2020 would be KACK and KBID to compliment their NY scenery. KTEX to go with the already KEGE and finally KSEZ as its just a great location. I had some pilot friends over yesterday and I alway use AFS2 to get friends use to the sim and VR. Doing patteren work at Palm Springs. Why PSP because I have that product in both AFS2 and P3D and its a towered controlled airport in PilotEdge. I could of used KEGE, KMRY as well but one is Class C and the other is high up in elevation so I wanted something closer to MSL. We did pattern work and once they were use to VR, I switched to P3D and signed on to PilotEdge to give them the real deal in the A2A Cherokee which they are fractional owners of in RL. Once again. I know hardcore simming and the market place is geared to have some bumps with lots of promise going towards one to three main sims and AFS2 isnt one of them but to be able to just load up a flight in no time, experience amazing VR in the smoothest sim out there with the fact that from what I've read is also a great platform for helos with their R22, well I hope we can still see some new airports for AFS2 from Orbx before the end of 2020 when we can expect the simming land scape to be a bit different.
  9. My guess is New England Maritime. Love the pace these TE series are coming out. Highly looking forward to So-Cal. Will be picking up this Nor-Cal one upon release. Found I get better frames when in clear skies so the idea of flying in locations like So-Cal/Nor-Cal where also seasons are such a big deal makes things all the better for me. Also thanks Jarrad for the shout out of PilotEdge. Your scenery, a SimCoder REP plane, VR, FSEconomy and PilotEdge is true immersion blurring the lines of reality.
