Great shots.... and then you get home and the Missus asks, "Where did you get all that lean steak meat from?!"

Cheers John, with a payload of over 3000kg I have got a lot of explaining to do and farmer Davis has got a fair few cows missing!

You are most welcome Paul.

What a bummer, been there and done that and it is so frustrating.

Hope to see you back posting again soon.

Thanks Martyn,

I probably should move to P3D, but do I wait for the new version?

Also, I have 100 or so payware aircraft for FSX. Can I afford to walk away from a £2,000+ spend?

As you say, just frustrating at the moment.

Cheers

Paul

Well done Martyn, you had me laughing out loud!  Quite the adventure you had in Wales I'd say.

Cheers Jack, glad I made you laugh. I enjoy flying in Wales, it has some beautiful scenery.

Thank you Gerold, the feeding of the 5000 will have nothing on this:lol:

There lies the problem Paul, like you I have masses of pay ware planes and airports, which is why I am still stuck on P3DV2.4.

I have now noticed that a lot of new airports(non ORBX of course) and planes are now P3DV3 only or V2.5 and upwards.

I know where I will be staying for the time being and it is great to see that ORBX are still thinking of the older versions of P3D which I hope and pray they will do for as  long as possible.

Whoo-hoo! that looks like fun Martyn! Great scenario and pix. And ain't these sales just too tempting? I swore I wasn't gonna but . . . and now I've got no time to fly as what little time I seem to have at the moment is now tied up with installing and logging all the new stuff.

Sorry to hear your troubles, Paul. Maybe it'll turn out to be an easier and quicker fix than you think - sometimes happens. As for the FSX aircraft, having now got the FSDT Whirlwind running ok in P3D there's only one FSX/FS9 aircraft (a freeware Concordski) that I've not been able to load up into P3D successfully - either via the migration tool or just installing to a dummy directory and then copying everything by hand. Just my two-penn'orth.

I, and I suppose many others too, am also feeling a bit stuck here. But honestly we have got heaps of things to don in the existing sim (FSX for me). The only thing is I stop funding many add-on producers currently because of the uncertainties - except orbx, I trust they will make upgrading as fair as in the proven past.

Thanks Andy, I have brought very little non ORBX stuff lately, in fact just the AH Typhoon but that Helldiver does appeal even though it is an ugly brute of a thing!:o:ph34r:

Freeware is the go at the moment and I am managing to install about 90% of it into P3DV2.4:)

So frustrating for Paul to have it go belly up. Just hope it is nothing that a re install wont fix, so easy for all the ORBX sceneries now with Centralv3.

Chopper too big, but the cows are interested a lot it seems,  very nice shots anyway Martyn!

Cheers Dolf, that is the problem with an oversize chopper;). No matter what I fly from here the cows always come for a look but they are very friendly.

Nearly over here Gerold and it was a pleasant day, beautiful autumn weather too. Hope you are having a great one over there.

I have just installed a few FSX airports into P3DV2.4 and it looks as this is as far as I can go at present as I just have too much to leave behind. I have a lot of  airports in SE Asia, China, Japan, South Pacific, Caribbean and South America.:rolleyes: I do fly V3.4 in NZ but that is about it at the moment and I am enjoying all this freeware too much in v2.4!:)

 

Well thanks for the interesting conversations here. It seems I am not alone with this moving on to new sims lark but it is very frustrating when you like the look of something only to see it is not compatible and too expensive to take the risk.
