  1. Well good to hear and read this. Was curious about the FSLabs 320 once upgraded to P3Dv4, but no longer.... they can keep it if they are that silly with DRM. I also have their Concorde which it seems they won't be bothering to update to v4. Seems I'm done with FSLabs. Thanks for the heads up!
  2. Great video and awesome setup you have. Best of luck with the upgrades!
  3. Great post, enjoyed the shots! And yes, it's worth the price... I even fly it often low and slow haha. I enjoy freight routes more than the passenger routes. Awesome plane, and in P3Dv4 it's butter with Orbx stuff. Very pleased!
  4. Great video! Thanks for sharing! I too would buy this in a second!
  5. Man, was hoping to come back after this was first announced and find it to be resolved by now and PayPal turned back on. Was really wanting to pick up some stuff but without PayPal not a viable option unfortunately. Best of luck sorting this.
  6. Sure, what better time to test the loyalty of your customers with a new payment system than during a sale when they are eager to buy and sales are already up due to reduced prices? Simple economics 101.
  7. Orbx doesn't get it or care, and Alex is simply the damage control PR mouth. Fair enough. Like rogera said, I support PayPal vendors on a daily basis both online and in normal retailers, Orbx decided to no longer be one. I guess the reason doesn't matter, other than it's disappointing they chose to let down/lose so many customers. Particularly (or maybe on purpose?) during a rare sale.
  8. Well, not that Orbx cares, but add me to the list of not buying until PayPal is back. I simply won't share my credit/debit cards to each individual mom and pop virtual store where ever they may be located in the world. PayPal is great, use it every day. Everywhere else accepts it. Bad decision, very disappointed.
  9. I've had really good luck and enjoy using FreeMeshX. http://ninetwopro.com/ Can't beat the price, it looks fantastic, and the developer even provides helpful support if needed.
  10. Great shots! Gotta ask, where'd ya get the belly pod?
  11. A2A Cub works great in P3D, fly it quite a bit w/ accusim addon. Great shots, I love TAP as well, so many fun strips close by.
  12. I'm 100% P3Dv3 these days (and started with FS4), but after reading this entire thread of debate, I'm truly sad that all we are debating is yet another version of the same dang thing.... Whatever DTG does is a version of the same old engine. Period. We will have to pay for the new DLC "versions" we already bought. Even John said it's using the same Global we already bought..... it's simply another version of the same sim charged differently. I miss the days when multiple sim engines were still developed, ie Flight Unlimited or FLY! as options, which I both loved!! DTG is just the same old stuff, rehashed, and most likely breaking compatibility simply to sell DLC according to John and his massive amounts of product sold expectation.
  13. Except when there was a new FS every 2 years, ORBX/PMDG/A2A/REALAIR et al didn't exist like they do now... we were too worried about what the next sim version would add/change/improve and looked forward to that. There was great freeware and some payware, but it was nothing like we enjoy now. While some call this stagnant, I see it as stability. The fact FSX:SE and P3D improved things and kept backwards compatibility was why I jumped all over them. Look how long the LC packages are taking to develop for example... once we finally get NA LC there's a new sim that's not compatible? And they still had the rest of the world planned? What am I to buy ha... I'm a bit lost at the moment lol
  14. That's my take away so far... no real answers on what they'll be doing, or if they even know themselves. Curious to watch, but if it has all the same basic FSX file structures with the same basic FSX code, how are we to expect a sim worth dumping all our existing beloved addons for? Exited to see what they come up with, hope they succeed, but it will take a lot for me to switch.
