Ah well... BTW does FlyTampa LGAV v1.5 apply to FS9??? I didn't notice any references on their forums.

No, it doesn't. Only FSX/P3D.

The new features do not work under FS9.

Thanks, I thought as much.

It irritatingly keeps popping up on SimMarket under "FS2004".

Apparently FS9 has pretty much dropped dead as far as sales go.  That's a darn shame but not unexpected.

Time to learn scenery design.
I agree... let's start with NZAA  :wub:

But if Aerosoft cites the success of their "Megasale" as indicator, this can only lead to wrong conclusions. Who wants to buy the very first sceneries for FS9 from the middle 2000s today? That was a self fulfilling prophecy indeed. A typical "M******".

 

However, a new EBBR rendition would have been nice, but it's more important for me that a freeware developer like, lets say, A.Anta provides another Russian Krai package every second week...

GeyerH - just do a fast post count on the FSX and FS9 forums and then look at activity.  I've seen a couple of days go by without a new post on this forum. According to sources across the web, the FS9 user base is less than 25% of the FS market and that's why most developers have left the FS9 market. I still use FS9, you still use FS9, and so, presumably do the rest of the folks in this thread, but for a lot of new development FS9 is over.

With new development quickly drying up, I started to teach myself GMAX and Sketch Up. They both have steep learning curves. My frustration levels rise and I drop it for a few weeks.

 

Unfortunately, we will need to take the bull by the horns and either do our own scenery or offer developers to pay a premium to help them maintain their margins.

 

I think with P3D approaching V3 and V4 on the distant horizon, developers will be allocating their resources to go with the market. My thoughts are once P3D is stable and optimized, that's where everyone will be going.

I am already there Groovy ... have been ever since P3D v2 was released (fly GA Australia only) also have FSX:SE, but FS9 is still my sim of choice, fly tubes all over the world into payware airports, heavy weather all accessories with nary a problem including lack of OOM's.

 

Still there are thousands of sceneries, aircraft, paints & AI to explore and digest.  FS9 will NEVER be boring. However if members move on so-be-it,  what ever turns one on.

Appliance is absolutely correct.  There are hundreds of excellent add-ons for FS9 and it's a great big world in there. My own setup is beautiful and gives me hours of pleasure. I do testing and support for an unspecified developer who does FS9 and FSX so that I have both and enjoy both, but FS9 is my sim of choice for the sheer smoothness of the thing.

Ok the thread is back....but with what looks like the same outcome. :lol:

 

Time to learn scenery design. :Nerd:

Well, I can, for example compile aerial images for any airport.

 

Problem is that you are not allowed to re-use/redistribute the Google/Bingmaps satellite images.

 

Not even for a freeware project...  :fool:

DJ, I totally agree. What disturbed me was the fact that Aerosoft takes a sale including the oldest FS9 software as indicator. I'm quite sure that a sale including the Mega airports, German Airports X (including FS9 versions) and other modern products would have shown much better results. 20 % of the FS market - this is probably still more then X-Plane.

 

I also agree that there is such a huge choice of sceneries, both payware and freeware, for FS9 that my FS9 install will never bore me.

Hi, Harald

 

I expect that they are actually looking at sales over an extended period rather than just the sale that Mathis referenced.  As you've noticed, their FS9 products are becoming increasingly thin on the ground.  I suspect their infatuation with X-Plane is due to the hope that the market share there will increase while FS9's continues to diminish.  I have no idea how that will turn out. On the other hand, looking at my flight list in FS9, I find that I still have over 20,000 airports to visit!

 

Regards,

DJ

Its sad developers stopped making sceneries for fs9.

 

My fs9 runs so smooth with lots of traffic, sceneries, every maxxed, no ctd's, no oom's, with perfect frame rates.

 

Why move to fsx or p3d?

 

I think there is enough to explore. I hope the traffic files and the AI traffic will be updated for fs9 in the future.

Definitely not for performance. Nothing beats FS2004 here, well, maybe FS98. :wink:

It's for the great addons made for FSX (/P3D) only that most people move, including me.

My FS2004 years were very happy, no doubt about it. Nothing but good memories.

But I cannot any more imagine my simming without NGX, PMDG777, MJSQ400, ASNext, and lots of awesome new airports.

 

BTW, I must tell you those legends about terrible FSX performance are strongly exaggerated.

You won't get the FS9 levels, true, but with today's hardware and rational settings, flying in FSX is fun.

 

Why am I sometimes writing in the FS9 forums? Mostly because as a guy who flew FS2004 for ten years (!) I still feel at home here. :smile:

These sceneries are better looking indeed. But the sceneries I have on my fs9 are also very beautiful and I still love the way ORD, LAX, DFW, TPA, BUF and many other sceneries look.

 

Why would I change to fsx when I invested so much in fs9. Not only in money but also in time.

 

I love to fly my fs9, cant imagine that it stops within a view years. We will see what happens in the future.

Getting back to EBBR becoming vaporware. What is wrong with the current version? Is it out of date? (By out of date I mean has there been new runway or terminals built)

The problem with the old scenery is that it is laggy as hell and it doesn't look very well in P3D. (It was made in 2007!). In that time a new terminal has been built and the numbers of the runways have changed.
