Lots on offer, lots off ... but are there any gems?

I've bought REX4, considering latitude... 

Cheers

Keith

 

Thanks for the heads up. Of course anything I would want and paid good money for I already have. Typical. Although I am thinking about Latitude. I have FSCaptain though. But for a measly $8....

There are a lot of good planes on that list, these immediately jumped out at me:

 

BN-2 Islander

Vertigo warbirds

Warbirdsim P-51's

 

All great planes if you are still using FSX.

Hey Philip! Thanks for the mention. Won't be long with P3D. It's not a market forces thing, takes time. I've already got most of the work done in preparation for new features in P3Dv2. Right now I'm sorting the main product with the next update [sg] out very soon [free]. This takes care of things arising after the big update and expansion pack came out recently, and has lots of new stuff. With the expansion pack I've included support for Majestic Q400 FMC plan loading (I believe currently only available with IF10) and CIVA INS station cards, plus for both versions finally we get a UI handling starting other apps.   :smile:

FS Global Real Weather just dropped 20%. Very tempted to pick this up.

FSGRW was my old favourite before ASN came out, but now I go ASN 100%, sadly no match.

I really enjoy the aircraft actually, it's a lot of fun to fly. There is a small glitch where when you turn, the ailerons will not move in a fluid manner, but will instead bounce back and forth. After reading the tutorial it made sense to me how to fly the plane. I also picked it up on a sale, but I don't fly it anymore for other reasons (not having to do with the aircraft itself).

I would say it's definitely worth the sale price.

I got E-jets and FSCaptain... Very happy with both purchases.

 

For me, the Embraer is like NGX lite and FSCaptain is giving me a no BS rating of my performance. FSC support is top notch as well.

Tally another REX 4 sale. I'd been thinking about getting it for a while, but the high price turned me off, especially for just textures. With 40% off and 10% off Tuesday's, resistance was indeed futile....$18 USD out the door.

I really found the Easter Sales lack luster. Looked though everything and ended up not finding anything really appealing. Virtually everything on sale was obsolete or known rubbish.

 

I picked up MegaSceneryEarth Switzerland as my first ever Photo scenery and got 50% off plus the another 10% for 10% Tuesday and having tried it will say that I am happy with that purchase. It seem that there are a whole bunch of pros and cons to photo scenery :lol:.  But I do like this one and I am glad I bough it but if I had paid the full retail price I am not sure I would have felt the same way.

 

Also I paid like $8 for REX Latitude. I remember the release of this seemed to be a big deal. I haven't done anything yet other than set up an account and look at the GUI for a few minutes. Have to wonder about this one. I have a feeling that this is a major disappointment for the REX in terms of its take up. Won't prejudge but given that in the few times I have taken a look at the radar I have never seen more than 4 people in the whole world on line and just know when I looked there was only 1. You have to wonder! Anyway haven't tried that out yet and I think I am going to like it.

 

All in all though Easter sales where very disappointing to me.

 

Not that I am complaining though. In the last 3 weeks I picked up 21 ORBX boxed airports for $7.95 at The Flight Sim Store. 7 AU and 14 NA. Now I had to pay about the same in shipping and they are not all yet P3D V2.X compatible but I still saver over 50% of the download which you get anyway.

 

That IMO is the deal of the year so far and it is still to some extent available yet no one in talking about it:-)

Rex Latitude is most useful (I think) in grading your flights and discouraging bad habits :-)

Well worth the $8 for that, the on-line doesn't seem to have taken-off (yet).

Cheers
