  1. Here is an older comparison video I remeber watching. Its mainly a matter of taste I belive. Its been a while since I watched the video but I think I remeber that I personally liked Tera flora better. (Based on the video - I dont have either addons) I find it interesting now that they are partnered, they sell both companies directly competing products on the same website....
  2. I'm sure we all would. I like that idea. What confused me is im not sure if it works that way, where you "suggest" for companies to make partnerships....
  3. I'm not 100% sure, but im pretty sure this above is correct. TE is photocell so the improvements are likely going to be better than the improvements if PNW. And that TE takes president if both are installed and the areas overlap.
  4. Orbx's sales are usally unpredictable, usally dont follow the same pattern every year, but there almost always is something sometime in December.
  5. There used to be a product map link at the bottom of the orbxdirect site, but this seems to be the new way to find them.
  6. Yep I had the same problem, worked yesterday but not today. That temporary fix worked. Wonder what happened last night.... No updates got intstalled or anything to my knowledge..... That's odd....
  7. Thanks nick, it is in correct orientation now.
  8. While 750 and 770 are only 20 numbers apart, there is a huge difference between the two cards. I learned this recently also when my gtx 745 can't even get msfs to the flight configuration screen without a ctd. I've chosen to stick with what I have working reasonably with my pc (P3D4) I find this website useful to compare GPUs. https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-770-vs-Nvidia-GTX-750/2174vs3162
  9. I noticed the grass runway at Orbx 2B2 plum island airport (14/32) is flipped around on ATC an the P3D map/gps... Runway 14 is heading 320 and Runway 32 is heading 140. Would anyone know if this is an Orbx bug or something else? Global Base, vector, olc na, 2b2/6b6. Thanks.
  10. This is a huge concern for me also not having a super high end PC. Would be nice to have a demo. And/or a refund policy if a certain amount of FPS is lost.
  11. Evening decent into Calgary after a nice flight from Bella Coola in the PC12 P3D 4.5 Carenado Pilatus PC12 REX SkyForce 3D Orbx PFJ Orbx FTXG Base Orbx FTXG Vector Orbx FTXG OLC NA
  12. KEGE (and the road next to the airport) is elevated on the east part of runway 24. I'm thinking its supposed to be this way (hence the approach lights elevated on stilts), but I figured I would just check in case something is wrong. It would be great if someone could let me know if this is normal or if I have a problem. Thanks.
  13. Not exactly a support request as I'm not sure its Orbx related, but I was wondering if anyone else has this issue. It seems like the northwest half of PAMD Middleton island airport in alaska the brakes on the aircraft dont work... You can see the wheels lock up and stop spinning but the aircraft doesnt slow down at all.... wondering if its an ice simulation or something? Wouldnt think so as its 55 degrees Fahrenheit in the simulator. Ive tried different aircraft. Its peculuar that its only half of the airport. I have Orbx southern alaska and FTX Global Base/Vector/OLC-N
  14. I have the Orbx PAEN Kenai Municipal airport with SAK on P3D v4 P3D Air traffic control doesnt seem to like runway 19L/01R (the short runway) Whenever I touch down on that runway for a touch and go using the process through the tower, tower immediately says to contact ground. As if I didnt land on the runway, but I did. Does anyone else have this issue or is this a bug? Is there a way to fix it? Many thanks, Caleb
  15. I've been waiting for a P3D demo of true earth for a while also.
  16. Good question. I have also been wondering if MSFS2020 is going to use the same general platform and file structure as FSX and P3D are and have somewhat compatible addons or be completely different such as xplane.
  17. I've been noticing alot of true earth releases for xplane, but not many airports.
  18. Very cool! That's ingenious of them to set that up. Wish they did that for sun n fun too
  19. Regardless of what is currently compatible with which versions of P3D, yes the investment is transferable to P3D from fsx without needing to purchase again or pay for any updates.
  20. Interesting I never noticed that. I stand corrected
  21. Interesting... will take a look.... thanks. Edit: looks like just a 3rd party app to disable the service (which I have tried and didnt work). But I'll give it a try, cant hurt. I suppose some can have different experiences with updates than others. My file loss was one update corrupted external drives. After doing some research that was a common problem with that particular update. When it comes to startup speed and in sim performance you might be right that it increases performance. I havnt noticed any slowing down in those regards during updates.
