Just a heads up that FSDreamTeam have a sale on at the moment. KCLT is pretty damn amazing and there's plenty more cool airports on offer there too. You get a discount for bulk buys plus the 50% off if you also purchase KCLT at full price. Details on their site...

I have all the FSDT stuff except KCLT.... and I just heard from Umbreto that the reason the landing lights do not work in v4 at KMEM is because it is outdated and needs an update.  Odd since this is one of their newest locations and none of the others have this problem.  The FSDT support just sucks, awful. So glad that Flightbeam is dumping Virtuali and couatl altogether.

Yeah, it's been in the bargain hunter's forum for about  10 days already...

Tip: You can also get them at PCAVIATOR on Tuesdays for an extra 10% discount, and if you have one of the codes they send via e-mail, that's another $5 off... Sweet deals...

Any idea why Paypal blocks my purchase through the FSDreamTeam website?  Tried to buy KCLT and KMEM last week and PayPal told me:

"To comply with government regulations, PayPal is required to review certain transactions. The payment you sent is currently being reviewed and we will complete this process within 72 hours. This review only involves this transaction and does not affect the use of your PayPal account."

The next day PayPal "reversed" the transaction after review.  Tried the purchase again and the exact same result.

First time in well over a decade of using PayPal I ever ran across this.  I'm still confused honestly.

I did really enjoy the demo of KCLT (as it's my home airport where I live).

Have you tried contacting PayPal or your bank/credit card company regarding this?

Sounds a bit odd... contact Paypal and FSDT and see what they say i guess?

What part of the landing lights do not work? I just checked KMEM at night and the landing approach lights seemed to be working fine?

Dont forget to try before you buy! FSDreamteam is so nice and offers free trial of every of their airports. Just download and install it and test it, you have a few minutes to try everything out normally.

Yeah, figure PayPal is who I need to contact.  Just haven't had a chance yet... got a baby on the way in a few weeks and a wife in heavy nesting mode ha.  With the few spare minutes I get I'd rather be flying the sim rather than dealing with support issues :biggrin:

Was just curious if anyone else had their FSDT purchase flagged.  I've since used my same PayPal account elsewhere to pick up a few items without issue on other sites.

I tried purchasing KCLT and 2 other airports last Wednesday. Paypal sent me the same email and also refunded my transaction about 24 hours later.  I am so done with Paypal!

Usually when there are this types of Paypal problems the seller had to many chargebacks in the past or other problems with the bank account to Paypal account in - etc. Swiss is known for their questionable banking system in the world. So maybe thats because Paypal is careful until they clear some things out?

Also when the seller usually gets not so much income on his Paypal account and due to the off-sale right now he get tremendous amounts in a very short period of time.

So I would contact FSDreamteam also if they Paypal account is "still fine" and working...

The approach and runway lights work fine.... I said the landing lights (implied aircraft lights) don't work, there is no light splash on the pavement from landing, taxi, taxi turn, navigation or strobe lights. Nada.

I don't see FSDT doing that anytime soon. We know how they are. Many perfectly running sims have been broken by FSDT scenery, LOL.

Yeah, I think you'd have to have it or some parts of it for GSX to work.  Still, it might mean less problems if he'd decouple the airports from it.

But what's the main reason to stick with coutl engine? What are the benefits of that, if any? Seems like there's more cons than pro to having it.

I wish PMDG would have a sale....that if they even know the meaning of that word. 

Great deal from FSDT... wish I could take advantage of it.

I missed the news about Flightbeam dropping Coutl, That is fantastic news i'm going to do some research on it now, but anyone have any quick facts on the subject, is NZAA and KPDX going to be the first without the engine or are there airports already released.

I have to admit i bought KIAD & KDEN together and i love them but i didnt know until i installed them they used Coutl so i didn't buy anymore even though i want all of there products 

EDIT:: http://flightbeam.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=2478 found the info

They have a true monopoly with their airports, no other payware competitor seems to be interested to build them. But maybe it's not even possible because they hold licence aggrements with the regarding airports? Somehow fishy if you ask me, because they're supporting almost only US airports and of course only the most frequented airports in the world...

Would love to see some US airports from FlyTampa. I bet FSDT would not sell any of them anymore, because of the way theyre coded and look like.

Licence problems are for example related to Gulfstream aircrafts. Thats because we will never see them. They just dont want it,  even freeware devs got already cease and desist orders from them. As soon as they had reached a more professional state.

Both are great developers, but FlightBeam is better in my opinion. And their version of KSFO is amazing.

 

Edit....my bad, FSDT does not have a KSFO scenery.

You seem confused.  Where did you get an FSDT KSFO?  FSDT does not sell a KSFO San Francisco.  Flightbeam has the KSFO, and I'm glad they are going to get rid of Coutl for all of their other Flightbeam products too.

And as soon as Fly Tampa releases their new KLAS, I'm removing the FSDT KLAS too.  Over 4 years to update a new terminal on it?  The answer always being, "We'll get around to it as soon as we can."

Not with my money anymore.  What they did to my P3Dv3 installation that worked perfectly before I ran their new P3Dv4 installers sealed the deal for me.  No warning whatsoever that the installers would update my P3Dv3 installation so I couldn't use the Scenery Library GUI for their products anymore.  I've had enough with them too.

Just my personal opinion.

Bye-bye.

Flightbeam dumping the couatl engine? Interesting. Expect frame rates to tank on their sceneries after that happens. Although, I agree with their decision. The only bright spot about the couatl engine is that it runs outside the sim. FSDT's python script is nothing but trouble. Also, I am sick of being used for a beta-tester for their software.

 

hasta la vista,
