Good point OF. I do like the fact that my Orbx stuff is self contained and if I lost internet because of frequent thunderstorms I can still "fly" in my P3D 5.2 sim. Also, I just thought of this and is a little off topic. I've been saying for years that all the other companies should be like Orbx Direct which I love and look at what we have now. All or most of A2A's offerings, ChasePlane, and a bunch of others including non-Orbx scenery. Orbx Direct is a real piece of work and I'm glad I got to beta test it years ago.
I can honestly say that after the terrible alpha test I was in MSFS has dramatically improved and seeing just now filou's latest posts I'm simply amazed. How I wish I had my favorite planes in it. That day will come and then I'll be all in with MSFS and all Orbx has to offer because, and I'm not ashamed to admit it, Orbx in my opinion has the best scenery and airports. I have maybe a dozen non-Orbx airports like KATL (being from here and working there), it looks ok but everything if flat. If Orbx did a MSFS KATL I'd buy it today regardless of my fave planes not being in it!
