  1. To the crew / team at ORBX, I've been using the new FTX Central ver 3 and reading the issues it has caused going to ORBX Direct. Sometimes it seems really bad when poor old John V has a bit of a tantrum, but you can understand the pressure they're all under to make this work and to keep their business viable. I know they've come from humble beginnings and John V is the driving force to give us the best products for our hobby. (At one time they did all these for FREE), but John saw the commercial opportunities and to his credit has made it work. Actually, there's a whole NEW free proto-oxbx starting again at OZx, so don't forget to support them too. Never know where that will lead... The new ORBX DIRECT web site is very professional as is the FTX Central interface to make our lives easier. Just wanted to say well done and keep up the good work. I'll be supporting you, particularly with P3D into the foreseeable future! Wayne
  2. There is a real world airfield at this location... But not in FS, at the moment. :'( The actual crescent Moon looked exactly like this and it was a clear night. I thought it was a pretty cool image Cheers Wayne
  3. I thought I'd share a very nice experience I had with Fernando and the crew at Carenado. A couple of weeks ago, I noticed a problem with the Virtual Cockpit lighting of the Cessna U206G Stationair 6 II that I bought from Carenado in late July 2008. Below are the emails that we exchanged and as you can imagine, this is a really good outcome for me. So, I'd like it to be a great one for Fernando as well! [shadow=red,left]My initial inquiry...[/shadow] De: Wayne Enviado el: viernes, 22 de agosto de 2008 11:37 Para: contact@carenado.com Asunto: Problem with CARENADO "C U206G Stationair 6 II VC LIGHTING Hi Fernando and the crew at Carenado, Can you please advise how to fix a problem with the VC lighting of the CARENADO “C U206G Stationair 6 IIâ€. The Problem The VC panel is “illuminated†when the plane is “cold and dark†i.e. all electrical power is turned off and all light switches are off. (Click on the link to view an image of the problem.) My Installation The aircraft was installed to a temporary folder with the installer, then moved to the FSX simobjects, gauges and effects folders I have also tried updating the installation with the “PATCH CARENADO FS9 TO FSX (ALL CARENADO´S AIRCRAFTS)†application, but the problem was not fixed. Purchase Details I purchased the product from “The FlightSim Storeâ€. ------------------------------------------------------ Order Number: 8XXX Date Ordered: Wednesday 23 July, 2008 Products ------------------------------------------------------ 1 x Carenado - Cessna U206G Stationair 6 II (CAR-003) = $20.45 Delivery Option Instant Download ------------------------------------------------------ [shadow=red,left]And their response the next day...[/shadow] From: Support Carenado [mailto:support@carenado.com] Sent: Saturday, 23 August 2008 1:02 PM To: 'Wayne' Subject: RE: Problem with CARENADO "C U206G Stationair 6 II VC LIGHTING Wayne, we just uploaded a C206 full FSX. You can get it from here: "a hyperlink was provided...." We have this product for sold and also it is the full package. Please consider it as a gift for you. You should not have any problem with this. Carenado [shadow=red,left]And my response...[/shadow] Dear Fernando and the guys at Carenado, The gift is very much appreciated and I am humbled by your generosity, thank you very much. As with all of your products the full FSX C206 is another masterpiece, which you can be proud of. Also, I will be informing my simulator community at FTX and OZx of the excellent service I have received from you. Cheers Wayne Brisbane, Australia
  4. John V, I don't think my PC is up to doing YMML, :'( but I'm seriously thinking about buying it in appreciation of the great packages, such as PORT MACQUARIE and LAUNCESTON AIRPORT that you're giving away, not to mention all the others on the production line. I'll check with the "finance manager" and get back to you soon!
  5. Hey Mango, great work. This place has sure changed since I learnt to fly there in 1989! Look, I don't mean to be pedantic (but I can't help it, sorry). It's the double story red roofed house just outside the airport on Nathan Road, it in my opinion, just doesn't look right! I "Googled" the place with Street View and there is a red roofed house! Except it's not as elaborate ( 2 story) as your depiction. Please feel free to ignore this minor observation, because you make up for little inconsistencies with the airport's rendition. Thank you for you wonderful talent and for giving these gifts to us who are only mortal.
  6. In my honest opinion. As for my others well............. Go here and type in the acronym http://www.acronymfinder.com/ Just remember that using that acronym finder it may well give you a nicer meaning or a cleaner version to your going to have to fill in the blanks. I know how you feel, I was a bit over whelmed with all the unintelligible language as well! But there are lots of places on the internet to refer to. Another good acronym and initialism finding resource is "The Free Dictionary".
  7. I have been real flying for many years and when going virtual flying I think the yoke for GA is essential. Your priorities in my opinion, are correct. Go for it and enjoy the ride. I guarantee your first solo will have your heart pumping, skin sweating and mind racing! The landing will be one of the biggest thrills of your life. Don't forget [glow=gold,2,300]any landing you walk away from is a good one[/glow]... Best of luck
  8. No, there are at least two of us. What is the "DA Piper Cheyenne" and is it he same as the "Cheyenne X"? I MUST get one! Excellent images! Cheers
  9. And Wow again! I still can't get over how realistic these images are. The FTX background looks "exactly" like it does when you're really there... Amazing stuff! Thanks BugDani for sharing. Cheers
  10. Damn, how am I going to hide this one from the wife! I learnt to fly in the C152 and would love to have one (well virtually anyhow). Cheers
  11. I too have had the "simming bug", but it started in 1979 (yep I'm an old fart - just not grumpy yet) when subLOGIC released FS1 Flight Simulator for the Apple II. So, I must agree whole heartedly that "never have I had so much joy as I have now since the OzX and ORBX FTX crews and all those other members who are giving their time and skill made that possible". I'm looking forward to FTX AU Traffic, so I add my thanks and bow in your general direction every day! Cheers

  13. Why don't we all change to X-Plane! I understand it has most, if not all of these features already. Moreover, its cheaper and there appears to be just as many "communities" and freeware developers as MS FS. XPlane is still catching up with regard to graphics, but they are very close! \
  14. I have the greatest confidence in your abilities, Holger. The strategy and methodology you have chosen is sound and I'm willing to bet my hard earned $ that I won't be disappointed considering the products so far. Also, thank you for the insight into the decision making process you guys go through. I wait patiently for the outcome! Cheers
  15. The water is an important aspect of all island scenery, particularly in the tropical pacific and Indian ocean areas that I have seen at close quarter. With that in mind, and with the attention to detail produced so far by orbex's developers, I expect to see AU Green's Great Barrier Reef rendered to an amazing degree (perhaps with similar technology to Real Environment eXtreme,http://www.realenvironmentxtreme.com/index.html). With regard to Lord Howe Island's surrounding water, I expect we will see the same Bathymetric detail as Aerosoft was able to produce. I know John V is just being modest about the skills and ingenuity of his team! Thanks Wayne
