  1. Confused re AEC and OF2

    Am I correct in saying that we are awaiting updated software in two main areas: AEC in Vector ObjectFlow 2 for our Orbx US airports?
  2. summers day southampton

    Well done, Stewart And at my local airport
  3. Many thanks for all of the work re-creating AEC Now that I have run the new AEC, is it OK to run the install of these airports?
  4. VR Versus Monitors

    I expect to stay with a flat/curved screen with my new rig. At least for the foreseeable future. But as HMDs improve, there will probably come a time when I succumb to the urge to convert. I expect this to be after I have justified the expense and depreciation of a new 2D screen.
  5. Interested in clouds?

    Atlas is really rather good.
  6. Where in Orbx land and what aircraft are you flying?

    See me at http://flightdiary.net/mcdonar
  7. New Rig

    I am also of the view that staying up to date with technology is the least troublesome way forward overall.
  8. announcement Manual download daily limit has now been removed

    Many thanks for all of your efforts to provide us with such an excellent service.
  9. Enquiring about Pilot's Software

    I believe that there is some sort of partnership between Orbx Simulation Systems and Pilot's Software. Yet Pilot's Software do not have a forum I which the developer and its customers interact. This means that the Orbx forums then get used for this interactions. Could someone in Orbx request that Pilot's Software start a forum so that we can have meaningful discussions with Stefan?
  10. Pilots FS Global Ultimate mesh DVD's

    Many thanks for the information. Looking forward to installing my copy.
  11. Pilots FS Global Ultimate mesh DVD's

    Hi jjaycee1, I have the DVDs on order also. Are your instructions (above) contained in the installation manual, or have you had to learn how to achieve the results through trial and error?
  12. announcement Emerging platforms pricing policy 2017

    Hi Dominique, I believe that programmatic files require at least recompilation to be able to co-exist with a 64-bit P3D. Data files probably will not. So scenery files can probably remain unchanged. Even if they cannot, a recompilation with a 64-bit version of the ADE may be sufficient in many cases. A 64-bit P3D will presumably be stored in a Program Files directory rather than the existing Program Files (x86) directory. So the minimum required would be for programs in the Program Files directory to concatenate these two file types in order to access the existing data files. I agree that 'smoothness' will always remain a challenge for the simulator developers because all try 'to push the envelope' of capabilities.

    Well said, Dominique! There will certainly be some roughness to the conversion to 64-bit but I am sure that P3Dv4 will contain many, many improvements, most of which we have not yet imagined. After all, LM have been working on the new version for a long time, and converting to 64-bit will have been only one of many challenges with the new facilities available.
  14. Pilots FS Global Upgrade

    Hi Mike, Thanks for clarification. I am sticking with the 2010 version because the upgrade is way too expensive.
  15. Pilots FS Global Upgrade

    Will Orbx offer the new Pilots software for download via FTXCentral eventually?
