Hi Again,We had a little problem with the download delivery with WINZIP, which has been solved. Those who were affected: Thank you for your patience and we apologize for that inconvenience.The release info thread has been re-created (here).Some have asked about the availability of non-pp payment methods, as some countries do not permit credit card payments. We are working on a solution and hope to have that available soon.Thanks!

Damian,Quick question for you....if you have the time.I downloaded Flight One's Environmental package last night but have not yet installed it.Which software should be installed FIRST for the best results....ActiveSky 5 and then Flight One's Environment....or vice versa?I have a couple of hours left while downloading ActiveSky....so I COULD be doing something if I should install FlightOne first.Thanks in advance,Cap'n Tarmack

Hi,We did think of this, that is why we brought an entirely new ecommerce system online just for ASV launch...We are sorry things are so slow at this moment... there are simply too many people trying to download at once. We anticipated a big demand, but not this big!Remember, this is a 350MB add-on (with the high-res textures) and is something that really has never been done before for an online-delivery launch. Considering that there are hundreds of people purchasing/downloading it all at once, it is pretty good that it is still providing downloads for most customers without problem.We are limiting the amount of transactions going through at once right now, so you may see "too many users" or "service unavailable" but please keep trying...We appreciate your patience everyone.. we will get through this!

Thank you for your help.Could you please clarify the following for me please?I wrote it in another post but it went unnoticed (too many things happening recently ;-)you mentioned that fs can be open with flight notloaded in order to have ICS submitting textures.If so, would the following procedure work for fsnavigator users?-open fs9-start a flight-open fsnavigator and plan a flight. save the flightplan.-CLOSE THE FLIGHT (don't close fs9)-open asv, do the required steps-start a flight in fs9 and import the flightplan.Regardsand good luck with the new product(downloading as I type)Luca>Hi,>>We did think of this, that is why we brought an entirely new>ecommerce system online just for ASV launch...>>We are sorry things are so slow at this moment... there are>simply too many people trying to download at once.

Hi Cap'n Tarmack,I would Install the flight1 FE first, for the simple reason that it installs the water AND clouds together ( no option to install water only ), so then install ASV with the clouds and overwrite.That's assuming you want to use ASV clouds.Cheers,Paul

Servers seem to be available again. Downloading with 18kbs now. But guys, for this nice piece of software I would wait in front of the computer the whole day if necessary. Looking very much forward...Alex

I supose that you want to use ICS (you should :) )Try this:1 - Load ASV2 - Process a new route. This is your problem you don't have one. Just fill the departure, destination and Altitude. 3 - Process the route;This should take care of the ICS texture load;4 - Run FS95 - Build your route etc;Don't know if Damian as a better idea.Jos

Another stellar program launch.Downloads have been disabled."PURCHASE/DOWNLOAD is TEMPORARILY disabled due to extreme server load.. please try back again soon..."Guess you had to hit refresh about 50 million times, to see if it was released to get it. Oh well. Until next time I guess. I shouldn't have gone to sleep :)

LOL my download is still hummin along at 21kb/s. Oh man I hope it doesn't quit - 72.4 MB's downloaded so far. This seems to happen more and more with FS releases - the Level D 767 was about the same - lol we all are camping out waiting for releases these days.
