  1. I expect the contrary. MFS will have much more visibilty in the public, including via MS sites, ads, journals (online/paper), printed books, TV, Youtubers, and so on, than present sims. The user numbers as well as the addon market might explode, and am sure there will be enough room for addons, after we have seen the less prominent areas of the sim. Of course addon makers will have to adapt to the new "gaps", but they will do. Kind regards, Michael
  2. Indeed. However, John Venema speaking about just three ORBX supported sims gives me a bad feeling Kind regards, Michael
  3. and those with AeroflyFS2 - yours as well. I have been using this feature for a few days for Prepar3d4 now and like it very much. I'm still experimenting with the optimum but something around 0.56 seems to be a good start indeed. Kind regards, Michael (Sorry for "reporting" Johns (BradB) post above - this was just a wrong mouse click.)
  4. Wouldn't the Samedan airport make a perfect fit to the beautiful IPACS Switzerland region in AeroflyFS2? Kind regards, Michael
  5. I switched to Central some time ago, no migration or similar done, all left within P3D, and it works fine. I don't recall the download size, installed size is 3.9 GB. I've never been there, thus I can't judge if it's close to real, but it looks great. Kind regards, Michael
  6. I had Prepar3d running on a i7 2600K (great chip!) until a few years ago and it did work quite well. Recent Prepar3d versions even have a (slightly) better performance, so this should work. 16GB RAM are okay. I can't comment on the 1050Ti but I am pretty sure it will fit as well, maybe with lower AA settings. The key is to find the proper settings. You certainly can't have all sliders at the right end. Notably avoid Autogen higher than Medium, and try switching off shadows in case of trouble. As Mike states, leave the ORBX FSX installation intact as ORBX Central can grab files from it. Kind regards, Michael
  7. Good news. It would be great if the team could keep an eye on the partially green roads. Thanks. Kind regards, Michael
  8. Ah thanks, good to know. Best regards, Michael
  9. Thanks Nick, so I think I'll go through them and install them manually. Not a big deal. Kind regards, Michael
  10. Hi, I just saw Graham released a batch of more updates for the Australia Airports (YBGC etc.). Will I have to install these (and, maybe, the inital batch?) manually if I am using ORBX Central 4.0.13 and AUS v 2? I recall there were some airport updates during (initial) installation of ORBX Central, but I am unsure which airports were convered or not. Actually, I would prefer to get them via ORBX Central, if these updates will be released soon. Thanks and kind regards, Michael
  11. Add me here too, both for Asia as well as New England. Kind regards, Michael
  12. The Vector Configurator including AEC is still there and works. In my case it's sitting under J:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\ORBX\FTX_VECTOR\FTX GLOBAL VECTOR Configuration Tool.exe even after uninstalling FTX Central 3. Kind regards, Michael
  13. Installed and used for buying the brand-new EGLC. All went well up to a minor hiccup which I'll describe in a support thread. One question: I've defined a new place for backups and ORBX did properly save a backup for EGLC (and obviously for some updates of other sceneries) there. However, I have tons of backups (actually half of a terabyte) which I made with FTX Central 3 ("Install and save a backup for later"). What will I do with them? Just deleting and loosing them? Can I somehow move/integrate them into the new ORBX Central? I think it's neither in the interest of ORBX nor mine to uninstall all products and reinstall them with backups just to follow the new ORBX Central scheme. Another minor point: I find the distinction between sceneries bought and not bought a bit hard to see. If others don't agree you can forget about this point. I'm not 18 anymore, albeit I use a color-calibrated monitor... Once more thanks for the hard work, well-done. Kind regards, Michael
  14. Thank you very much guys and gals for the hard work! I'll make my way through it during the next days. Even more excited to see you provided an excellent user's guide which will hopefulyl save us some issues and you some support trouble. Kind regards, Michael
  15. I would also vote for the two-resolution options model if it's viable. Personally, I'm with Paul and others, and would rather stay with present resolution which I find is a good compromise. If I'll need a larger drive I'll buy one. In addition I have an uncapped speedy DSL connection. I'm a pure VFR pilot and for me it's quality first. However, I've read from quite a number of users on this and others forums who don't buy TE sceneries just because of the sheer (download and installation) size and I can understand them, too. So this would give them an option, if this sharpen process really works. Kind regards, Michael
