  1. Seems to run better in many ways than my other orbx sceneries, Of which I have more than a few. Paired with P3dv4.5 (hotfix) I get none of the pauses I see in my other sceneries, frame rates are high and loading times are much, much improved. Does AU2 represent the sum of current orbx learnings? I don’t know, but this I DO know. I am well pleased with my purchase of AU2 and more so am pleasantly surprised by it’s performance benefits. Great job orbx. -Braun
  2. Update. Have been flying for a few hours now. YBBN TO YLLE TO YMML. Performance is some of the best from ORBX I’ve seen so far and I have a lot of ORBX scenery. The landscapes in the interior are rich and detailed (for the interior). I’m about 90 min out from Melbourne. Based upon reports from other simmers I should be pretty impressed Frames averaging 60 to 70 more to follow
  3. Looks and runs great on my rig and my rig is over 8 years old. I2700K GTX970 SSDs Chances are you will have same or better experience -Braun
  4. PMB, Uninstall first. Fix won’t instal until you do. Read installation options -Braun
  5. ORBX AU was my first ORBX product. Purchased between 10 - 15 years ago. Not sure exactly. It was my first scenery addon for Flight Simulator. I have it now on my P3Dv4 and will buy AU2 the moment it comes out. Looks amazing. It appears to be a compilation of all the tricks and knowledge gained by ORBX in recent development. -Braun
  6. Farewell Big Bird....after 12 years, we hardly knew ye’! https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-02-14/airbus-buries-a380-flagship-drawing-curtain-on-jumbo-jet-era
  7. Well, I have stayed mum on this topic. Bought it day one. First scenery, Orbx or otherwise, I ever had a usability problem with. and I do have most of the Orbx product line, and ALL of their heavy hitters (regions / city scenes). Biggest disappointment is load times (10+ minutes). Once loaded, it is hit or miss if I get to fly, and it will almost always CTD. But as Nick correctly reminds us, this is not the support topic, so I'll say only this. If core usability issues are not resolved I think Orlando will be remembered at best as a swing and a miss. -Braun
  8. Horses for courses I guess. Me, I'll take digital spindle over physical any day. Night and day performance AND MTBF. It IS the Twenty-First Century after all. :-)
  9. Just bought KVUO Pearson Field. As such it was my first occasion to experience the new upgraded Central. Many new features. New UI Gauges for DL. New found speed. Amazing. -Braun
  10. Wow. For years I have virtually flown into KVUO Pearson, without ever knowing its name or rich history! (my virtual home base is KHIO). Now owning Orbx KVUO I'll be doubly motivated to fly there often. I also live in PNW and live / work very close to Vancouver. Sounds like a summer field trip to the Pearson Field Education Center is in order! Thanks to the OP. Fun and useful stuff. -Braun
  11. No need to throw away you Turbo Duke Don. Nor do you have to install it yourself, hack config files, install 64bit dll, etc. Sean of RealAir has graciously extended support on their products. Find out more at: http://realairsimulations.net/ Braun
  12. For NA I vote going East. The NE is one example opportunity, Gulf Coast another. I have all the regions, but I would buy more. I hear a hue for more AK, but how much more beautifully rendered baron mountains covered with snow and ice do we need? My vote: Go East Young Men & Women (as the case may be) -Braun
