  1. I'm a bit fed up with them too, clogging up the messages, Grump..
  2. You had switches? Eee lad you were lucky. We only had hamsters running around cages providing a measly erg of power. Not enough juice to flick a switch!
  3. Reminds me of the classic: Customer told by tech support to "right-click" on the desktop. Nothing Told to do it again Still nothing Eventually established the customer was writing "click" on his desktop with a felt tip pen D'uh!
  4. Oh I so agree Mate! It seems to me that many are just trying to be first out of the traps. The one I saw most recently was about the TBM900 where the YT maker tried to get it started and after half an hour just decided to press the auto start keys and then waffled on about the plane not flyable (never heard of setting the trim to counter the prop drag to the left), despite it being in the FM (as in RTFM). I remember when ORBX TEGB for X-Plane came out and some guy took off from a South Coast airport and then after a few minutes said "and here are the white cliffs of Dover" when in fact he was directly overhead Seaford. Twit! And to give Q8 Pilot his proper dues and respect, he also took the TBM900 out for a spin, got a few things wrong, and then a week later re-did it correctly, admitting his original errors.
  5. I discovered Windows10 was running a disk defrag as part of a startup service. Turning that, and indexing off, helped speed up things tremendously. Just tuppence worth.
  6. Based on the xplane tile requirements rather than individual states, countries, political boundaries etc
  7. I really only use FPS to determine if my VR experience will be worth it. I've got pretty much all the UK mapped out now so I know where to avoid. So it can be useful as a tool. I use MSI Afterburner to check FPS, RAM and VRAM and it's very interesting to see the difference addons and cityscapes make.
  8. F.A.B. The only potential problem will be the roads with the traffic baked in when the photo was taken originally. Will you be "algorithmicalling" them out, or providing new surfaces a la Xplane?
  9. It's in the news again! https://www.thesun.ie/news/3939072/sighting-loch-ness-monster-irishman/amp/
  10. And as for the TBM900 might I suggest a custom registration number (you can put it in, in the Airframe Manager) as, say. K-JACK Also I note you were confused about the post above mentioning neaps: https://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/lamb-recipes/haggis-neeps-tatties/
  11. Jack there's a beautiful seaplane by Aerobask (free) here: https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/35322-lisa-akoya-by-aerobask/ and that does it too! So it's sea handling too - just a puff of wind and it's spinning top time!
