Palo Alto -25%

I'll admit to being a bit tempted.  I got Orbx KSQL last week and it's really nice and covers the bay really well.  I've looked at the pictures of Palo Alto and, really, can't tell much how much of the area around the airport is covered.  Looks well done, though.

I also saw this late last night.

 

I just bought it.  $15 is not too much of a risk. Hope it doesn't completely bog the Bay area down.

 

Also being Canadian, our buck against the US buck is 30% exchange right now so the discount basically offsets the exchange.

 

Interesting, PC Aviator gave me another $1 off my purchase.

There's a 10% Labor Day sale on right now which reduced the price by $1.50 .

Not necessary right now, you get the same 10% instant off discount all through the weekend and into Tuesday.

But on Tuesday you will get an extra 10%, besides the weekend discount. Trust me. I`ve already spent almost $800 bucks with them. I even have another extra discount to apply as they e-mailed me. So probably for me an extra 30% discount.

No, you won't... I also have spent a lot with them and only on promotion days. The 10% discount of tuesdays or of these promotions are automatically applied when adding to the cart, and the system does not apply two stacking them...

The only thing you CAN stack is the automatic discount plus if you have a coupon like you said.

 

Edit: also the discounts are not linear; two 10% coupons do not eat wait to 20% discount it's less (19%) just like when they have the 40% off mega scenery earth and you also add the 10 it's not 50 it's 45. But that's just nitpicking ...

 I could be wrong, I will try on Tuesday.

A 10% discount on 100% leaves you with 90%. Another 10% on those 90% gives 90%-90/10%=90%-9%=81%. Perfectly in order.

 

Combine 40% and 10% discounts and you - correctly - end up with 54% to pay.

Yep, correct. Type on my part meant to type 46, not 45, which is the real discount in that example.

 

It's just match really as the discounts don't get added but applied in order, so the next one is only discounting to the amount that the previous one leaves instead of the original total...

So...how is it?

 

A readme comes with the file that details how to make it compatible with Orbx NCA.  Its important to turn off a few files from Orbx to allow it to work properly.

 

Further head over to Orbx Compatibility forum and also read if you haven't already done so about how to get better performance our of that general area by turning off marina, docks, those blasted cranes, and marina lights.  This will help for those with VAS issues.

 

So far I would say this is a very good buy and nicely fits to the area.

I played 9 holes on that Golf course next to that Palo Alto airport last weekend... I couldn't focus on the golf.. I keep getting distracted at all the aircrafts that were taking off and landing at that airport.

So.. I just tried just in case and no dice, you don-t get 2 discounts stacked...

 

Having said that, if you do have a coupon that WILL stack.

 

Cheers.

The discount as I said you will get on Tuesday purchase at PC aviator.

Uh no... unless you didn't express yourself properly.

 

On the weekend items were on sale at a lower price.

 

You also had an automatic 10% discount on *ANY* item (whether it be sale price or regular price).

 

You said that if you waited until Tuesday, you would get the 10% discount *PLUS* the other Tuesday 10% discount, and that's just not the case... Automatic discounts never stack.

 

You *CAN* get the automatic discount plus a *coupon*¨, but if you wanted to buy something (no matter if lower prices due to the sale or regular price), this past Tuesday you did not get 2 x 10% discounts applied...

 

 

Now if what you meant to say was you get the discount *of the sale* plus the 10% discount, sure, that's true but then my initial comment also stands, as you didn't even have to wait until Tuesday in the first place because they were already giving an automatic *extra* 10% discount on top all prices, both regular and sale prices (and this 10% doses not stack with Tuesday's as it's the same thing).

Carlos;

 Forget about it! Of course you are saying something that you don`t know. As "olli4740" said, he was able to get what I said he will. Where you ever able to apply 10% discount over what was already discounted on Tuesdays discounts?! I was and so others.

 But just leave it alone and let`s move on. Deals was already finished.

 

 Happy landing to all.

I'm not saying something I don't know. You need to reread the first posts ( or re learn to read maybe). You said to wait till Tuesdays for the 10% discount and I said it's not necessary at all because they were giving that 10% on top of the discount price all through the weekend no need to wait for Tuesday.

After that you started talking about stacking and I think you clearly got confused...

 But I said that on Tuesday, you can get another 10% and keep saying that is not true.

  Let`s forget about it.

You keep stating stuff without re-reading. I never said it was not true. I said it was not necessary to wait until tuesday because you get the same discount all throught the weekend.
