MSE Italy is Available

Recommended Posts

Hi Simmers

 

A few days ago I got an email from MSE promoting that Italy is available for purchase.

I am interested in getting it.

 

Then yesterday I got another email from them regarding specials and new products.

Italy was shown at a price of 16.99 maybe an intro special?

 

I tried to buy it but the price comes up at 39.95 in the cart so no go!

 

My question is did anyone here receive a coupon to use for this?  I didn't.

Could anyone please check your email to verify my findings.

I sent them an email query yesterday but did not receive any response.

 

Thanks in advance.

I received the same E-Mail. Aerosoft F-14 was also at a reduced priced.

 

In Canada, it is illegal to have a promo announced then not delivered !

Hi Jim,

 

I am not fluently bilingual, I cannot distinguish your tone in this reply, so, are you serious ?

 

I just mention in fact that in Canada we have some sort of protection against this. I will not pay for a laweer for this ! I just want to say that supplier must take more attention over there publicity, it is not a formal accusation.

 

But the guy at pcaviator may be as little bit overwelmed by the work in this Christmas Time, he make also a typo and offering 150 % reduction over .... Hum, just verified and he corrected it.

 

Hoping that my English reflect my idea good enough and that will not be cause of inflating in something else.

Thanks Guys

I was getting worried about my vision, too much flying! lol

 

I do think though that if an email special goes out it should be honoured for at least some time.

Even if it is a mistake of some type.

 

Tried again just now and still the same price 39.95

And still no response to my email.  I have bought several items in the past?

I got that same notice and noticed how cheap it appeared when in fact its a new release I thought it odd.

 

And, worse yet I have just completed a lengthy download of freeware Italy which took me over three weeks of on and off downloadiing.

 

The freeware stuff is very good especially with the autogen and HD areas. Not sure what you gain by paying for it except much easier acquistion.

 

Freeware is here.

just use ImTranslator to convert to english if you need to.

Then sue the pants off of them!

 

 

I wanted to laugh but.....the guy just made an observation.  Sounding like a curmudgeon Jim.  Lighten up man.

Bryan, you just need to learn to distinguish between when Jim wants to add to the discussion (and then he is well worth listening to) or when he is just bumping his post count.

OK Bryan,

 

So I will consider your post as a confirmation of something funny happened here. I will stay cool.

 

Hoping I am not stupid (I really do not understand this kind of humor, sorry, cultural diversity may be).

 

Have a good evenning all of you.

 

(Jim I wanted not to hurt you, or anyone here, sorry if i made some unappropriate comment.)

Thanks for the link, very interesting but I can't figure out how to download.  Register and then nothing happens?

It's been that kind of a day...........

Each of the listed folder is a zip file that can be downloaded. 

 

Click on the folder to download, or if that doesn`t work right click should pull up a context menu with Download as an option.  In some cases you must hold down the ALT key and right click to get it to work.

Given all the problems I've had with MSE Netherlands and Belgium, here's one simmer who won't be adding MSE Italy to my scenery library, even if it was free!

Or get a Google Drive account (you already have one if you have a Google/GMail account). Download the client application for your PC, link the Italy photoscenery files to your account, leave your PC on overnight and hey presto, the files will be on the Google Drive folder of your PC.

The freeware Italy is 330 files and it will take a long time to dl.

 

I already had 213 of them, but it took me 2 weeks.

Each zipfile has to be choosen and then select 2 windows by hand.

 

After having downloade them all , you need to unzip them all and manually copy the scenery files into one.

That is 330 times....

 

Therefore I have bought MSE Italy : 52 files, but you can unzip them all at once and it will create one scenery folder....

The Free Italy is well worth the patience and effort to both D/L and sort. The finished product is nothing short of stunning. My favourite Photo outside of the UK and on a par with Horizon Scenery. With the added bonus of nationwide autogen.

 

Outside of the USA I have to say that MSE is a total waste of money, unless you are fortunate enough to get your hands on it at a very large discount.

 

I would add that MSE also contains Corsica and Sardinia, which the free version does not. However, I am quite happy to live without them.

To all of you, thanks heaps for the hints.

After no reply from MSE I am presently dl the Italy freeware.  Looked at one area with viewer and am impressed.

 

How low can I fly with crisp images?

 

I don't have any MSE outside the US but from the comments I've seen everywhere don't think I missed much.

I'm mostly a mountain flyer anyways.

Thanks again......

Freeware Italy really isn't that much hassle.

 

Firstly, as I said, get the Google Drive client onto your PC. That will download all of the 330 files automatically for you when you link to his folders. No hassle there.

 

Then once they are downloaded, create your 'Italy Photoscenery' folder wherever you fancy. Cut and paste your 330 zips into that folder. Making sure you have 7zip installed on your PC, select a good chunk of the zip files at a time (say 100, then you'll only need to do the process 4 times) and right click. Select 'Unzip here' from the menu and it will unpack all of the 100 selected files into their various folders. Once you've done this you'll have 330 subfolders under your Italy Photoscenery folder. If you don't require the zips as a back up then remove them.

 

Final thing is to make sure you have Scenery Config Editor:

 

http://sourceforge.net/projects/fs-sceditor/

 

It has a feature that enables you to select a folder and (no matter how many subfolders it has) it creates all of the entries in your scenery.cfg file. So select your Italy Photoscenery folder and the job is done.

Common , 330 entries in your scenery library for Italy alone ?

 

I already have 358 entries without Italy....

I haven't done it yet, but I doubt you would need a separate entry for each PR Italy area.  Just create an Italy folder with a scenery folder inside this, add all of the bgls to the scenery folder and add one entry in to your scenery.cfg file.

 

Regarding MS Earth Italy, well, pictures here on the forums say it all.  I can't believe that guy is still selling scenery.  I wonder if he's started any of his "updates" yet?

 

Cheers,
