  1. Hi guys,

    Not sure if you will agree with my thoughts, love YBBN update P3Dv4, love Brisbane city update MSFS, but I can't understand why we now have a great YBBN, but a terrible Brisbane city, and  a great MSFS Brisbane city but a terrible YBBN. Would it not have been better to update one sim say P3Dv4/5 Brisbane city, and then MSFS YBBN airport, than have them both half done in each sim?  Just my slant on it.

    Glad to hear a bit of good news, Don. It's a tough row to hoe, but you've got us friends at your side.



     Thanks Rodger. I know you guys are on the other side of the world, but it's nice to know we have your support.

  4. Hi guys,

    It's ben a bit of a journey as you would well appreciate, and still going, but the good news is, definitely  no surgery, she has responded well to treatment - pain management, she is back to having severe headaches, which with her meds are controllable and will get better with time. Couple of pills, a good stiff neat JD and a good lie down - actually after that she falls down.:lol:.

    Picture a woman being dragged across the floor by the ankles by me LOL. Sorry I have to make the situation a bit light after what we have been through. 

    So looking really good now. Thanks to everyone for their kind thoughts and comments, it really means a lot.

    Doctors and surgeons are amazing people. These days there is nothing 

    they can't treat within reason. 6 years ago I had a kidney and pancreas transplant

    after 35yrs of type 1 diabetes. I am now 53. and doing very well {touch wood}. As I say, stay positive,

    it's not always as bad as it seems at the beginning, but I wish you both all the best.:)




    Thanks mate, appreciate it.

    Your a lucky guy Don to have your hometown created for FS, well done! :)


    Long time coming, but looks great Adam. Really appreciate the hardwork of the Orbx guys.



  7. Thank you everybody for your good wishes, we really appreciate your support. Too early to tell what the end result will be, but the doctors and surgeons said she is responding well to treatment, showing a definite improvement. So things are looking a lot better, but don't ant to, as they say.........count my chickens......

    This the second drama in our family in a month, my sister (she's 90) had to have a "balloon" inserted into an artery supplying blood to her heart three weeks ago. But she's up and about and giving cheek again, thankfully. My  wife's problem coming on top of that really took it's toll on us, but we have stayed positive and looking to a bright future.

  8. Some of you may have noticed I haven't been around that much of late - one of the problems of getting old and having health issue's. But every day I wake up, it's a good day. :D

    I have no complaints when I am able to get my bum into chair and crank up my sim. A couple of weeks ago I received a wake up call in the middle of the night, my wife holding her head and screaming in pain. To cut a long story short, she has been diagnosed with "Trigeminal Neuralgia" which is a slightly enlarged blood vessel in her brain pushing on a nerve hence major pain. At the moment she is having pain management (lots of pills), blood thinning etc, and getting along a lot better. Hopefully the end result is NO surgery, which is drilling a hole in her head and inserting a pad between the blood vessel and the nerve. Apparently this is quite a common thing amongst us over sixty's. Anyway I thank God, I haven't experienced anything like this, and hope I never will. We have spent a lot of time in doctor's surgeries and hospitals so simming was the last thing on my mind. 

    Point to this story is, guys and gals, enjoy life enjoy your youth, you never know what tomorrow will bring. I watched my wife become a basket case overnight, it can happen so fast. But thank God, she is on the mend now, and the medics think she'll have a 95% recovery, hopefully without the surgery.

  9. Just got back into the cockpit after a lengthy absence, and downloaded the Brisbane City Pack. What a great job the guys have done with this. Won't be able to get a good look for a few days,  but something to look forward to.




    Looking just great, now can't wait for the YBBN release.
