  1. Great shot, Adam ! Yes, XP lighting is very nice, except the VC's of many AC seem a bit on the darkish side during the daytime hours, with gauges harder to see.
  2. I can see why so many are flocking to XP ! Great shots and atmosphere, Jack ! I just wonder if you can somehow make the VC's brighter in the daytime ? Maybe a VC light ?
  3. Nice ones, Dolf ! Great colors !
  4. Great shots, Adam ! I have never seen XP water textures look better. Usually looks like carpet with a regular repeating pattern. Must be some .org add-on, right ?
  5. I remember when CD's were all the rage. My CD library grew exponentially in just a few months ..... so much so I had to buy new furniture to store them all. Sound familiar ? Then along came computers and media players ..... you mean you can actually store 1000's of songs in mp3 format on a single computer disk ? Wow, progress is wonderful. I uploaded all of my favorite tunes to my computer, got rid of my CD's and the furniture library housing them. Yes, technology is wonderful. My wall unit has been replaced by a USB flash drive. Then came something called .... music streaming. You can have access to virtually any song, genre, artist .... and all it takes is a subscription ? No more keeping up with constant downloading of the latest tunes by the newest artists, and no worries about running out of storage space on the computer drive. Yes, a wonderful idea ! Instant access to everything . Now, ..... what's this ? MSFS 2020 ...... Someone has been patiently sitting on the sidelines, and taking notes for the past 14 or so years. Yes, the future looks bright (and interesting), indeed. Sure, there will be hiccups along the way and the MS way may not be for everyone, but, hey, .... I am beginning to like the sound of this new tune. BTW, I also , still own a record player and some precious 'vinyl' ..... for that 'nostalgia factor',... but CD's I honestly can live without. My opinion, and as always, YMMV.
  6. Competition is good. Sometimes, however, too many cooks in the kitchen can spoil the cake.
  7. This just in ........ https://www.forbes.com/sites/antonyleather/2019/07/10/intel-plans-to-end-amds-ryzen-rampage-13-hyper-threaded-processors-including-5-2ghz-10-core-beast/#60e8419b1f2a
  8. Thanks, Nick. I was beginning to wonder if putting an entire sim on a dedicated SSD was really of any great benefit. I would rather have more space (HDD), than spend the money on speed (SSD), if the only difference is a longer initial loading time (I can live with this). I read somewhere that a sim will load up scenery into memory just before you fly over it ('on the fly') ... and stutters can result sometimes - I presume then these stutters have nothing to do with whether the scenery is on an HDD or SSD, but more on the speed of the CPU and GPU ?
  9. Scenery streamed to the computer .......... Microsoft may be on to something here.
  10. I wish someone put up a post here somewhere on how to effectively manage large scenery files like this for X-Plane, for future-proofing. Can X-Plane be on a separate, dedicated SSD, and all addons (scenery, aircraft etc.) be on another, different, dedicated drive (SSD vsHDD?), will external drive work for addons ? I've never had X-Plane, and currently am planning my next comp system build (was thinking P3D, ... but XP is fast peaking my interest - so may go for XP now). Bottom line, I don't want to run out of space in couple months, and want to somehow be able to easily expand storage for addons without a total sim re-install on a new, bigger drive few months down the road.
  11. Very impressive, indeed ! I think I need to seriously re-visit my next build spec sheet, as 10 of these TE products will use up my separate 2TB sim only dedicated SSD in a few months, lol ! Anyone have any ideas how to store all these big files ? Given the prices for SSD's, .. will the more economical HDD's affect sim performance ? Is storage of scenery feasible on external hard drives...or will this affect performance ?
  12. A little bit of competition never hurt anyone ..... just results in a more advanced product. It's good to see MS back from the sidelines with their 4K PC sim offering. Just hoping Orbx will be part of this in the future.
  13. I just got back home from a trip without computer connectivity, but nonetheless, I would like congratulate Heka on a job well done ! A great capture, indeed !
