  1. Yes I would agree with you that the Australia & New Zealand package is first class and I will not use anything else flying there. Sadly I would not hold my breath for ORBX to release anything major in this regard in the foreseeable future for North America and the rest of the world. Graham Eccleston from ORBX has done a tremendous job over the years and I think he deserves a bit of a break. If ORBX were to release a pay ware AI I would purchase it in a heart beat. Kevin
  2. Hi John, yes I have all Aussie scenery. That was our 10th time on the Gold Coast. Tiger for punishment I know Kevin
  3. Hey that's below the belt! Yes John I do apologise I was thinking of the Avenger. The Milviz listings are under "Partners' by the way. You won't get me rising to the bait about the cricket, there is nothing on the hook. I have just spent a couple of weeks in your neck of the woods after spending 8 hrs driving up and down dodging bush fires on the central and north NSW coast. 6 days R&R on the Gold Coast before flying home was rather good. It is just so sad to see and very upsetting when you see it first hand. Kevin
  4. Well shake the moths from the credit card my friend because it is listed as being available from ORBX direct! Kevin
  5. Just when you thought it was safe to go in the water Kevin
  6. Thankyou for your explanation Tym. I will follow your advise Nick and ignore them. Kevin
  7. But could anyone tell me what the 2 entries are in my purchased products, misc...….. TFDi real light and TFDi true glass. There is also XMLT xml tools. They not installed but click on them and it invites you to install them and that they are free. Well yes but it would be nice to know what exactly the little blighters get up to first. I noticed these after a rather large TEGB south update. Any ideas? Kevin
  8. Been there a couple of times in the last twenty years. I was waiting for the new Central to settle down and have just done the deed. And how about that, when I get back from my Aussie holiday there is a sale on as a bonus. I would have bought it regardless. FTX Honolulu. just Wow! What a lucky devil you are Sniper to have spent so much time there. Sadly father time is not on my side and so I doubt I will get there again in person. However ORBX have provided me with the tools to spent many a happy hour there, well done to all the team.
  9. Now don't tell me that nobody else does this. When I am checking out a new aircraft to buy I watch the odd You Tube video and I sit and watch out the front of the cockpit and then wonder what we are flying over and turn my head to look out the window and nothing happens! Yes I have track IR5 and would not be without it. As others have said, set up all your presets on your yoke and you have full control at your finger tips at all times. Kevin
  10. Hi Holger, please keep up the good work. You will soon see just how popular this type of scenery is when it is released and the severs go ballistic. The old methods of scenery production combined with some newer methods has made things come along in leaps and bounds. Just amazing stuff. And the bonus will be that you won't need to add yet another drive to handle it. Kevin
  11. Thanks for sharing Bruce e. The passion these guys have for these wonderful aircraft is great to see. They will live on for many years to come. I flew up from Christchurch to Wellington on one of last remaining DC3 aircraft in the now Air New Zealand's fleet in 1968 I think is was. I had walked out on to the tarmac expecting to find a Fokker Friendship and lo & behold here was this beauty. What I remember most was how quiet and smooth it was. Helped no doubt by a fine day. Many a day I would go to the airport at Paraparaumu ( before Wellington had ground airport ) and watch the DC3's and Bristol freighters come and go. What a beautiful sound. I still see the odd one take off from my local airport after a maintenance check at Field Air. Sadly they few and far between now. Kevin
  12. Quite remarkable, first class no question. Full credit to the OBX team. Kevin.
  13. Just takes your breath away, stunning. You ORBX boys & girls sure make it hard to up your game with each new offering. Appreciate all the hard work. Kevin
  14. If they have let Emmsie loose on this, then it must be just around the corner Nice shots Iain Kevin
